Egypt's Coup: Game Over? Not by a long shot!

Following up on this post. Fireworks burst over Tahrir Square after Army Statement

ht freethinker!

Wow, fireworks. laser lights and as freethinker notes an 'iconic' image

Perfect material for perception management of the masses
Dramatic flourish courtesy of Egyptian military the real and consistent power in Egypt.
If not the government, who pulls the strings of the military?
Feeling cryptic today my answer is "He who pays the piper, call the tune"

When I put up the post yesterday, I left the comment "Cue the civil war"

Cue the civil war

I mean no disrespect to the Egyptian people.
I absolutely believe the people should be the masters of their destinies.
That said, I have very real concerns that the situation is going to go from bad to worse in Egypt. 
Intentionally. By design. These concerns led me to make the comment I did yesterday.

Briefly: Muslim brotherhood is not really known for it’s cuddly ways. Morsi has been encouraging the fight between Sunni and Shiite. Morsi has been encouraging the divide.
Morsi and the MB will take it to the streets. They have the guns, the mercenaries, the indoctrination and the numbers. They also have the western NATO/ Israeli backing.

I am not alone in this thinking: In Egypt, get ready for extremist backlash
“Morsy's gravest mistakes have resulted from a deliberate policy of accommodation and not, as is commonly believed, confrontation. He has allowed the military to retain its corporate autonomy and remain beyond civilian control.”

So the linked piece begins. Morsi had no choice regarding the autonomy of the military. He never had a say. Nor did Mubarak. It’s nice spin, but, it just isn't relevant. 

The part of the linked opinion piece I am most interested in is quoted below:
“This is likely to push a substantial portion of mainstream Islamists into the arms of the extremists who reject democracy and ideological compromise.
A segment of this rejectionist camp is also not averse to taking up arms against the "system" that suppresses them as well as against its foreign supporters. It is almost certain that some elements among the disillusioned mainstream Islamists will decide to join this militant trend and resort to arms -- thus increasing the odds of this volatile region descending into greater anarchy and turmoil.”
Order out of chaos... Divide to conquer

"There are still people in Egypt who believe in their right to make a democratic choice. Hundreds of thousands of them have gathered in support of democracy and the presidency. And they will not leave in the face of this attack.

"To move them, there will have to be violence. It will either come from the army, the police, or the hired mercenaries. Either way there will be considerable bloodshed. And the message will resonate throughout the Muslim world loud and clear: democracy is not for Muslims."
You see, here in the West, we are supposed to believe that these poor people just can’t work it out. 
This psyop/ maneuver wreaks of ‘white mans burden’ reinforcement.
They (Egyptians) just couldn’t give ‘democracy’ the time it needed. Bull biscuits.
The army clearly pushed Morsi out knowing the brainwashed dupes/ the militants/ the mercenaries in the MB would take up the cause.It is what they have been programmed to do. It is the expected outcome.
Cue the civil war


  1. Said always with the hope myself and the two individuals quoted are mistaken

  2. I agree Penny. I really believe we are heading into the civil war in Egypt. Unfortunately many people don't seem to understand that this would be a real civil war, unlike what is happening in syria where western forces are waging war against the Syrians to force a change in the balance in the region. This will be a real civil war that reminds me of the Algerians civil war when over half a million were killed brutally. Egypt has over 80 million people so which tells me to expect one to two million casualties.
    Lets put it this way, the MB will not turn the other cheek and after sixty years and winning the election as promised in a democratic process, they will come out swinging. Lets not forget it was the MB who assassinated Sadat, fought against nasser and Mubarak, fought against syria's govt and are now in Jordan where likely the boy king will be looking over his shoulder watching them.
    This is going to be ugly.

    1. Hey anon 3:00pm

      Whew. I was worried that someone would take offense at what I had said
      and that was not my intention. I don't want to be misinterpreted as some entitled 'white' person spouting opinions based on some overblown delusions cause I live in the gated community of NAT
      That is not me, at all. Not at all

      " this would be a real civil war"
      That is what scares me, also
      And I want it to not happen, which is why I am coming out so strongly against it
      I would love for the Egyptians to come together and start working on a rebuild themselves.
      Of course I would like to see Canadians and Americans do the same
      non participation in the system created by the ptb's

      I saw something just recently that Morsi has been imprisoned and was released just prior to the overthrow of Mubarak.

      I had been completely unaware of that tidbit

      " is a veteran Islamist who is no stranger to underground politics having broken out of jail just 30 months ago"

      what to make of this news..
      It's as if he was set up to fail, but, he had to have known his freedom had come with a price tag

      If people don't understand then it is up to us to get the word out.

  3. got this one via email from James, since blogger had decided to be a blocker of comments

    Here's James!

    It seems that Morsi and the MB went off script.

    and Scott Creighton again but from two months ago-

    The Egyptian Central Bank is owned by the usual suspects. It's always the central bank that determines the state of the economy. If it had co-operated with Morsi then the economy would be in much better shape by now. So I'd say "set up to fail" is pretty right.

    1. thanks James
      I will read the links but glad to know I am not far off base with the set up to fail scenario

    2. Thanks Pen,
      Here's an article by Michel Chossodovski on Egypt and the coup. It gives some background as well. To me it is starting to look like the MB was hesitating to take on the IMF loan (as previously agreed by them) because of the already harsh economic conditions and not wishing to make them worse as would happen, of course, with the new loan and the accompanying conditions.

  4. excellent article
    couldn't have said it any better, if I wouldn't have already said it myself
