UPDATE: 03.07.2013 21:10h pm – Military has taken power in Egypt –
Mohammed Morsy is no more President of Egypt.
Egypt’s military deposed the country’s first democratically elected president Wednesday night, installing the head of the country’s highest court as an interim leader, the country’s top general announced.Gen. Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi said the military was fulfilling its “historic responsibility” to protect the country by ousting Mohamed Morsy, the Western-educated Islamist leader elected a year ago. Morsy failed to meet demands to share power with opponents who thronged the streets of Cairo, and those crowds erupted as the announcement was made.Ahead of the statement, troops moved into key positions around the capital and surrounded a demonstration by Morsy’s supporters in a Cairo suburb. Citing an unnamed presidential source, the state-run newspaper Al-Ahram reported that “the General Command of the Armed Forces told President Morsy around 7 p.m. (1 p.m. ET) that he is no longer a president for the republic.”

UPDATE: 03.07.2013. 20:12pm EGYPT-Cairo – Military takes power in Egypt ” It is not a coup it is the people will.” ?
Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy “is no longer a part of the decision-making circle,” the state-run Al-Ahram newspaper said Wednesday, citing “a senior official source.””The president is no longer able to make any political decisions now and a decision has been taken to prevent leaders loyal to the current regime from traveling overseas until the General Command of the Armed Forces are finished formulating their expected statement,” it added.The announcement came less than two hours after the nation’s first democratically elected president offered to form an interim coalition government and as one of his aides and a Muslim Brotherhood spokesman said it appeared that a military coup was under way.”The presidency’s vision includes the formation of a coalition government that would manage the upcoming parliamentary electoral process, and the formation of an independent committee for constitutional amendments to submit to the upcoming parliament,” Morsy said in a posting on his Facebook page.Egyptian demonstrations from aboveVideo shows clashes at Cairo UniversityMorsy defies military’s ultimatumHe noted that hundreds of thousands of supporters and protesters had packed plazas around the country.”One of the mistakes I cannot accept — as the president of all Egyptians — is to side with one party over another, or to present the scene from one side only. To be fair, we need to listen to the voice of people in all squares.”He urged that his countrymen be allowed to express their opinions through the ballot box.The posting came as protesters packed public spaces around the country to demonstrate their opposition to and support of his government. But whether his statement would stave off military intervention was not immediately clear.As night fell Wednesday, Egyptian deployed across parts of Cairo and surrounded a pro-Morsy demonstration at a Cairo mosque.The president himself was said to be working from a complex belonging to the country’s Republican Guard, across the street from the presidential palace, according to Egyptian state media. Reuters reported that troops were setting up barricades around that facility.Coup allegationAn aide to Morsy, Essam El Haddad, said in a Facebook posting that a coup was under way.”For the sake of Egypt and for historical accuracy, let’s call what is happening by its real name: military coup,” said El Haddad, who works in the office of the assistant to the president on foreign relations.”Today, only one thing matters. In this day and age, no military coup can succeed in the face of sizable popular force without considerable bloodshed. Who among you is ready to shoulder that blame?”He added, “In a democracy, there are simple consequences for the situation we see in Egypt: The president loses the next election or his party gets penalized in the upcoming parliamentary elections. Anything else is mob rule.”And a Muslim Brotherhood spokesman, Gehad El-Haddad, described what was happening as a “full military coup.”Photos, videos capture Egypt in crisisAll eyes on Egyptian military’s deadlineEgyptian ministers resign amid unrest”Tanks hv started moving thru the streets,” he said in a Twitter posting.But Naguib Abadeer, a member of the opposition Free Egyptians Party, said what was under way “is not by any means a military coup. This is a revolution.”

Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has rejected the army’s 48-hour ultimatum to resolve the country’s deadly crisis, saying it will only sow confusion.President Morsi insists he will continue with his own plans for national reconciliation, a presidential statement said early on Tuesday.
The army has warned it will intervene if the government and its opponents fail to heed “the will of the people”.
However, it denies that the ultimatum amounts to a coup.Meanwhile, Egypt’s state news agency Mena reported early on Tuesday that Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr had submitted his resignation.If accepted, he would join at least five other ministers who have already reportedly resigned over the political crisis.
On Sunday, millions rallied nationwide, urging the president to step down.
The statement by the minister of defence and army chief, Gen al-Sisi, was worded carefully.It did not say the president must go.
The army, with troops in strategic positions across Cairo, is saying the government and opposition have 48 hours to agree a way forward or it will intervene with its own plan.
The Egyptian military has been both hero and villain for the people involved in the ousting of President Mubarak in 2011.Heroes, first of all, when they put themselves between protesters and the Mubarak regime’s enforcers. But later they were widely criticised for holding onto power for too long.The reality is they have never given up their critical role behind the scenes, which includes huge economic power.No matter which way Egypt goes – and there could be some very rough days ahead – the army will never want its own power diluted.
Large protests continued on Monday with activists storming and ransacking Cairo’s Muslim Brotherhood headquarters – the group from which the president hails.President Morsi’s opponents accuse him of putting the Brotherhood’s interests ahead of the country’s as a whole.He became Egypt’s first Islamist president on 30 June 2012, after winning an election considered free and fair following the 2011 revolution that toppled Hosni Mubarak.
US President Barack Obama – currently on a tour of Africa – called Mr Morsi to encourage him to respond to the protesters’ concerns.Mr Obama “underscored that the current crisis can only be resolved through a political process,” the White House said in a statement”.
Coup in the making?In an announcement read out on Egyptian TV, Gen Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, defence minister and head of the armed forces, described the protests as an “unprecedented” expression of the popular will.If the people’s demands were not met, he said, the military would have to take responsibility for a plan for the future.But while he said the army would not get involved in politics or government, his words were seen by many as a coup in the making.

Many Arabs believe that the Arab Spring is a Western, and more specifically an American, plan since the days of former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to divide the Middle East into smaller rival nations to breed discord and plunder their wealth. Some subscribe to the theory that recent events in Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Syria point to a calculated plot to destroy Arab and Islamic countries and wipe out their rich heritage and history. The truth is that these theories generate self-loathing, suffering and pain, and, if they become firm convictions in the Arab mind, will invariably lead to the destruction of the Arab people.
Such beliefs are highly dangerous and may cause a kind of psychological, moral and intellectual death among Arabs who keep feeling defeated and hopeless after this image has been planted in their minds.Although I am not defending the United States and its Western allies, I am not at all surprised if they are planning to achieve their strategic goals by all available means to protect their interests in the Middle East. This should not be surprising, because this is how the game of international interests is played.
Countries would be considered stupid and naïve if they do not look out for their own interests and do everything possible to protect their national interests. There is no place for ideals, justice or even ethics in the world of politics. It is all about (and nothing but) interests. This is what all previous civilizations — including the Arab and Islamic civilization — have striven for over the centuries. The love of domination and control and the lust for money and power over other people and nations have been a common objective for all of these civilizations, with only slight differences in execution. However, we must accept the fact that we often blame others for our problems without taking on any of the responsibility ourselves. This is unacceptable because it leads to defeat, surrender and submission.
The Arab Spring is a phenomenon of ordinary citizens rebelling against repression, much like other well-known revolutions. However, protesting in the streets is ineffective without self-liberation from ignorance, fear, surrender, and defeatism. Once the Arab world began speaking about elections and ballot boxes as a purpose and not a means to an end, Western countries seized upon this development as a way to benefit from these uprisings. Whether true democracy can succeed in these Arab nations remains to be seen. Underlying conditions such as extreme poverty, frightening ignorance, illiteracy, and widespread corruption must be addressed by new governments regardless of their adherence to democratic principles.Yet, if one believes that America is the root cause of all of our problems, then I believe that only two options are possible:The first is to surrender to the bitter reality and keep on complaining about what others are doing to us and blame them for everything.
This will leave us with no other choice but to give up and accept this as our fate. We will have to spend the rest of our lives teaching our children and the coming generations that we have no other choice but to curse America, thereby admitting to ourselves and to the world that we are nothing but mindless sheep controlled by others.The other option is to admit that the United States and its allies are not the real enemies, but instead is our defeatist attitudes. We must realize that the only way forward is to change our way of seeing things and restructure our way of thinking. We should remember that the Holy Qu’ran says: “Allah does not change a people’s lot unless they change what is in their hearts.”
Changing ourselves is not an easy task but it can be done if we follow these steps:
First: We must liberate ourselves from the notion that we are victims of a vast conspiracy to control our destiny. The idols of fear, cowardice, negativity, ignorance, and defeatism serve no purpose and prevent us from improving our lives. We must take responsibility for our mistakes. If it is true that the entire world is scheming to divide the Middle East and steal our resources, we should accept that reality and start thinking immediately of how to build an intellectual, cultural and civilized plan to combat the situation rather than continue to complain and wallow in fear.

Within the first few months of 2011, the U.S. and its allies lost three loyal “friends”: Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, Zine el-Abbidine Ben Ali in Tunisia and Saad Hariri in Lebanon. While Mubarak and Ali were driven out of power by widespread popular uprisings, Hariri was ousted by the parliament. Inspired by these liberating developments, pro-democracy rebellions against autocratic rulers (and their Western backers) soon spread to other countries such as Bahrain, Yemen, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
As these revolutionary developments tended to politically benefit the “axis of resistance” (consisting of Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas) in the Middle East, the US-Israeli”axis of aggression”and their client states in the region mounted an all-out counterrevolutionary offensive. Caught off-guard by the initial wave of the Arab Spring in Egypt and Tunisia, the US and its allies struck back with a vengeance. They employed a number of simultaneous tactics to sabotage the Arab Spring. These included (1) instigating fake instances of the Arab Spring in countries that were/are headed by insubordinate regimes such as those ruling Iran, Syria and Libya; (2) co-optingrevolutionary movements in countries such as Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen;(3) crushing pro-democracy movements against “friendly” regimes ruling countries such as Bahrain, Jordan and Saudi Arabia”before they get out of hand,” as they did in Egypt and Tunisia; and (4) using the age-old divide and rule trick by playing the sectarian trump card of Sunnis vs. Shias, or Iranians vs. Arabs. 1. Instigating Fake Arab Springs, or Post-modern Coup d’états Soon after being caught by surprise by the glorious uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, the counterrevolutionary forces headed by the United States embarked on damage control.
A major strategy in pursuit of this objective has been to foment civil war and regime change in “unfriendly” places, and then portray them as part of the Arab Spring. The scheme works like this: arm and train opposition groups within the “unfriendly” country, instigate violent rebellionwith the help of covert mercenary forces under the guise of fighting for democracy; and when government forces attempt to quell the thus-nurtured armed insurrection, accuse them of human rights violations, and begin to embark openly and self-righteously on the path of regime change in the name of “responsibility to protect” the human rights. As the “weakest link” in the chain of governments thus slated to be changed, Gadhafi’s regime became the first target.It is now altogether common knowledge that contrary to the spontaneous, unarmed and peaceful protest demonstrations in Egypt, Tunisia and Bahrain, the rebellion in Libya was nurtured, armed and orchestrated largely from abroad.Indeed, evidence shows that plans of regime change in Libya were drawn long before the overt onset of the actualcivil war 1. It is likewise common knowledge that, like the rebellion in Libya, the insurgency in Syria has been neither spontaneous nor peaceful. From the outset it has been armed, trained and organized by the US and its allies.
Similar tothe attack on Libya, the Arab League and Turkey have been at the forefront of the onslaught on Syria. Also like the Libyan case, there is evidence that preparations for war on Syria had been actively planned long before the actual start of the armed rebellion, which is branded as a case of the Arab Spring 2. Dr. Christof Lehmann, a keen observer of geopolitical developments in the Middle East, has coined the term “post-modern coup d’états” to describe the recent NATO-Zionist agenda of regime change in the region. The term refers to an elaborate combination of covert operations, overt military interventions, and “soft-power” tactics a la Gene Sharp: “A network of think tanks, endowments, funds and foundations, which are behind the overt destabilization of targeted sovereign nations. Their narratives in public policy and for public consumption are deceptive and persuasive. Often they specifically target and co-opt progressive thinkers, media and activists. The product is almost invariably a post-modern coup d’état.
Depending on the chosen hybridization and the resilience of government, social structures and populations perceivedneed for reform, the product can be moreor less overtly violent. The tactics can be so subtle, involving human rights organizations and the United Nations that they are difficult to comprehend. However subtle they are, the message to the targeted government is invariably ‘go or be gone'” 3. It is no secret that the ultimate goal of the policy of regime change in the Middle East is to replace the Iranian government with a “client regime” similar to most other regime in the region. Whether the policywill succeed in overthrowing the Syrian government and embarking on a military strike against Iran remains to be seen. One thing is clear, however: the ominous consequences of a military adventure against Iran would be incalculable. It is bound to create a regional (and even very likely global) war.
2. Co-opting the Arab Spring(in Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen) When the Arab Spring broke out in Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen, the US and its alliesinitially tried to keep their proxy rulersHosni Mubarak, Ben Ali and Abdullah Salehin power as long as possible. Once the massive and persistent uprisings made the continued rule of these loyal autocrats untenable, however, the US and its allies changed tactics: reluctantly letting go of Mubarak, Aliand Saleh while trying to preserve the socioeconomic structures and the military regimes they had fostered during the long periods of their dictatorial rule. Thus, while losing three client dictators, the US and its allieshave succeeded (so far) in preserving the three respective client states. With the exception of a number of formalistic elections that are designed to co-opt opposition groups (like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt) and give legitimacy to military rulers, not much else has changed in these countries. In Egypt, for example, the NATO/Israel-backed military junta of the Mubarak era, which now rules Egypt in collaboration with Muslim Brotherhood, has become increasingly as repressive toward the reform movement that gave birth to the Arab Spring as it was under Mubarak. Economic, military and geopolitical policies of the new regimes in these countries are crafted as much in consultation with the United States and its allies as they were under the three autocratic rulers that were forced to leave the political scene.
The new regimes are also collaborating with the US and its allies in bringing about “regime change” in Syria and Iran, just as they helped overthrow the regime of Gadhafi in Libya. 3. Nipping Nascent Arab Springs in the Bud A third tactic to contain the Arab Spring has been the withering repression of peaceful pro-democracy movements in countries headed by U.S. proxy regimes in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and other kingdoms in the Persian Gulf area before those movementsgrow “out of hand,” as they did in Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen.Thus, in collaboration with its Western patrons, Saudi Arabia has over the past year cracked down viciously against peaceful protesters not only within its own borders but also in the neighboring country of Bahrain. Leading the invasion militaries of the Persian Gulf kingdoms into Bahrain last spring, the armed forces of Saudi Arabia continue with the support of Western powers to brutalize peaceful pro-democracy protesters there. While the Saudi, Qatari and other Persian Gulf regimes have been playing the vanguard role in the US-Israeli axis of aggression against “unfriendly” regimes, NATO forces headed by the Pentagon have been busy behind the scene to train their “security” forces, to broker weapons sale to their repressive regimes, and to build ever more military basses in their territories. “As state security forces across the region cracked down on democratic dissent, the Pentagon also repeatedly dispatched American troops on training missions to allied militaries there. During more than 40 such operations with names like Eager Lion and Friendship Two that sometimes lasted for weeks or months at a time, they taught Middle Eastern security forces the finer points of counterinsurgency, small unit tactics, intelligence gathering, and information operations – skills crucial to defeating popular uprisings. . . . These recurrent joint-training exercises, seldom reported in the media and rarely mentioned outside the military, constitute the core of an elaborate, longstanding system that binds the Pentagon to the militaries of repressive regimes across the Middle East” 4. These truly imperialistic policies and practices show, once again, that the claims of the United States and its allies that their self-righteous adventures of “regime change” in the Greater Middle East are designed to defend human rights and foster democracy are simply laughable.
According to Sharp’s own Albert Einstein Institution (AEI) 2000-2004 annual report, AEI had been sponsored by the US government’s National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and its funded subsidiary International Republican Institute (IRI) to train activists in Serbia (page 18) Zimbabwe (page 23) and Myanmar (page 26) to help overthrow their respective sovereign governments.Despite this, there are still voices out there calling criticism of Gene Sharp’s affiliations with the US government and the CIA “wild accusations” and “conspiracy theories.” One of these voices is director and Sky News/freelance journalist Ruaridh Arrow of the UK. Arrow has a lot invested in his views, as he is the director of “How to Start a Revolution” and has invested a tremendous amount of time and effort attempting to portray Sharp as anything but an agent of US-funded sedition promoting corporate-fascist global hegemony.In one interview, Arrow even admits that upon seeing the Serbian Otpor revolution and the Ukrainian Orange Revolution unfold he suspected a CIA conspiracy, but then implies that the presence of Gene Sharp’s book in the hands of these various groups, practicing similar tactics, was evidence otherwise. In a column afforded to Arrow by BBC titled, “Gene Sharp: Author of the nonviolent revolution rulebook,” he claimed that Sharp “has faced almost constant financial hardship and wild accusations of being a CIA front organisation.”
Such statements are in obvious contradiction with even Sharp’s own AEI annual report.Also included in Arrow’s BBC article was mention of his visit with Srdja Popvic of CANVAS, whose own website claims US government agencies such as Freedom House, United States Institute for Peace, and the International Republican Institute, as well as Soros’ New Tactics (page 6) as “partners.” Also mentioned as a partner was of course Sharp’s AEI. Either Arrow was negligent in his research, or negligent in full disclosure as to the nature and affiliations of the groups training these “revolutionaries.”Any remaining doubt surrounding the true nature of these protests is cast aside when considering the 2008 inaugural Alliance for Youth Movements summit, sponsored by the US State Department in New York City and hosting CANVAS’ future Egyptian “April 6 Youth Movement” proteges. After receiving training in New York by AYM, then training in Serbia with US-funded CANVAS, April 6 would join yet another cog in the Wall Street-London conspiracy to overthrow the Egyptian government, Mohammed ElBaradei. ElBaradei much like Gene Sharp and CANVAS has an endless parade of apologists espousing his good intentions along with a Nobel Peace Prize draped around his neck for added “credibility.” In reality, ElBaradei is a member of the US corporate-funded think-tank International Crisis Group, funded in part by Soros’ Open Society Institute, with Soros himself sitting on the board of trustees, along with funding from Chevron, Shell, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, and many others.ElBaradei would return to Egypt a full year before the “Arab Spring” began to the open arms of April 6 activists literally waiting for him at the airport in Cairo. Together they began building the “National Front for Change.”
A year later, after making preparations with the help of April 6 and Wael Ghonim of Google, ElBaradei would lead what would be disingenuously portrayed by the complicit corporate-media as a “spontaneous” protest “inspired” by the equally disingenuous, entirely preplanned “revolution” that had just unseated the Tunisian government.Clearly, the “revolution” in Egypt was entirely misrepresented by the corporate-media, and likewise by filmmaker Ruaridh Arrow. The “Arab Spring” was not spontaneous, nor was it indigenous. Rather it was awas a premeditated geopolitical plot engineered by US corporate-financier interests years in advance.
The New York Times in its article, “U.S. Groups Helped Nurture Arab Uprisings,” clearly stated as much when it reported, “a number of the groups and individuals directly involved in the revolts and reforms sweeping the region, including the April 6 Youth Movement in Egypt, the Bahrain Center for Human Rights and grass-roots activists like Entsar Qadhi, a youth leader in Yemen, received training and financing from groups like the International Republican Institute, the National Democratic Institute and Freedom House, a nonprofit human rights organization based in Washington.”Further confirming this were public statements made by the US State Department-sponsored “Alliance for Youth Movements” (AYM) counting Egypt’s April 6 Youth Movement among its above mentioned inaugural AYM summit attendees in New York City as far back as 2008. Foreign Policy magazine admited that April 6 received further training from CANVAS in Serbia, before fomenting unrest in Egypt. FP magazine would also report that “CANVAS has worked with dissidents from almost every country in the Middle East; the region contains one of CANVAS’s biggest successes, Lebanon, and one of its most disappointing failures, Iran.”The destabilization in Iran, of course, was drawn up by corporate-funded Brookings Institution, as articulated in its “Which Path to Persia?” report, with the actual mechanics of organizing the foreign-funded revolution subcontracted to organizations like US-funded CANVAS, NED and its subsidiaries.In an April 2011 AFP report, Michael Posner, the assistant US Secretary of State for Human Rights and Labor, stated that the “US government has budgeted $50 million in the last two years to develop new technologies to help activists protect themselves from arrest and prosecution by authoritarian governments.” The report went on to explain that the US “organized training sessions for 5,000 activists in different parts of the world. A session held in the Middle East about six weeks ago gathered activists from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria and Lebanon who returned to their countries with the aim of training their colleagues there.” Posner would add, “They went back and there’s a ripple effect.” The ripple effect Posner is talking about is of course the “spontaneous” “Arab Spring” and bears a striking resemblance to the campaign of destabilization Gene Sharp and AEI perpetuated throughout Eastern Europe as described in detail in the above mentioned AHRP report.In a recent exchange, Mr. Arrow brushed aside all of this evidence in favor of his emotional documentary portraying Gene Sharp as an unsung hero and aging father of a global wave of genuine “democratic revolution.” He labeled the June 13, 2011 article “Fake Revolutions” as a “conspiracy theory.”
He insists that “his research” has brought him to “different” conclusions and stands by his work. While he agreed that Wall Street is a dictatorship, the irony apparently escaped him that his film is about Wall Street literally overrunning the planet with semi-covert revolutions from Tunisia to Thailand.Whether it is pride, ignorance, or duplicity that drives Mr. Arrow and his wayward message, contradicted by documents emanating from the very man and his organization he set out to portray in a positive light, his documentary has been picked up, supported, and promoted by the very same willful liars that foisted the “Arab Spring” upon an unsuspecting world. On Arrow’s own website, under “Special Thanks,” is listed “Every Human Has Rights” a campaign of the Gates, Ford Foundation, Soros Open Society, European Commision, and UK Department for International Development (DFID)-funded CIVICUS alliance.Also mentioned is the Stilwell Fund for the Visual Arts, founded by Kim Taipale of the World Policy Institute, funded by the Carnegie Corporation (mentioned in the above AHRP report as complicit in funding the projection of US foreign policy under the guise of “democratic revolutions”) as well as the “US Connect Fund” which is a collaborative fund created by George Soros’ Open Society, the Carnegie Corporation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Ploughshares Fund (a sponsor of the above mentioned International Crisis Group upon which Egyptian “Arab Spring” leader ElBareadei sits as a trustee).Indeed – somewhere along the line, though to what extent Arrow is not forthcoming – the very organizations engineering, supporting, funding, training, and in some cases arming the “Arab Spring” conflagration consuming Northern Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia, had lent Mr. Arrow a hand in his disingenuous, whitewashing of their dirty deeds. Mr. Arrow refuses to acknowledge this glaring conflict of interest, the apparent immense impropriety his “documentary” is in the middle of, or the implications they may have on his future credibility or the future of the countries he has helped play a small part in destabilizing and ultimately destroying.Below is a list of nations most of which are on record receiving Gene Sharp’s “humanitarian” advice and training. Documented in depth are also the recipient opposition groups’ ties directly to Wall Street-London corporate-financier interests. Indeed, Arrow’s film, “How to Make a Revolution” shows one in reality of how to best serve Wall Street’s interests by dividing and destroying your nation, while installing a puppet of the West’s choosing amidst the chaos, because that is exactly what Gene Sharp’s pupils have been doing for decades now in each and every case.

US-General Wesley Clark: The US-Wars in Libya, Syria, Somalia, Iraq have nothing to do with War against Terror or Arab Spring – They were already long time planned before the attack on the World-Trade-Center! The reason for the wars: He quotes: We have the ability to bring down governments, because we have a strong army, this is the reason, why we make wars! Resources, so Clark, are the aim of these wars! Please watch and spread and let us wake up and unite us to stop these war policies, which have already destroyed 100000 of lives, endless money, which could have been used to build up a world without poverty, and have bombed countries backwards! We need all to be active and organize a global peace movement.
As terrifying as any Biblical plague, the very corporations that funded the think-tanks and media organizations that crafted and sold the entirely engineered “Arab Spring” hoax to the world, have finally swarmed into Egypt to settle in and strip its lands clean.US Senator John McCain recently led a delegation representing his true constituency, Fortune 500 corporations, to Egypt and Tunisia to promote “private sector growth.” Traveling with McCain was a collection of corporate parasites from General Electric, Boeing, Coca-Cola, Bechtel, ExxonMobil, Marriot, and Dow who surveyed Cairo like conquering despots.
McCain’s corporate leash holders’ faces beam with joy as they savor the lush green fields they are now fully poised to devour. This is the fate that awaits all nations seeking US NED-funded “freedom.”The New York Times reported of the trip, “Senator McCain, an Arizona Republican, and Senator John Kerry, Democrat of Massachusetts, who were visiting Egypt with an American business delegation, said it was in the interest of the United States’ national security to see Egypt become a free and democratic country.” McCain would also say, “We also suggested ways to have more economic cooperation, further assistance to Egypt’s military and hastening the legislation of proposed aid to Congress.” While many labor under the corporate-media fueled delusion that the United States was caught off guard by the “Arab Spring” and has shifted into reactionary or opportunistic mode, an earlier New York Times article titled, “U.S. Groups Helped Nurture Arab Uprisings,” reveals that the United States government had been funding, training, and preparing for the Mideast unrest since as early as 2008.Such funding, training, and preparation was done through organizations such as the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) which in turn funds the International Republican Institute (IRI), the National Democratic Institute (NDI), and Freedom House.
Understanding that John McCain is chairman of the IRI which helped unseat the governments in the very countries he is now touring with big-business by his side, illustrates a complete picture, start to finish, of modern imperialism in action.McCain (left) and Kerry (right) gesticulate as they explain their paymaster’s agenda within the confines of an Egyptian Coca-Cola factory. This is part of their latest trip surveying the effects of their US-funded opposition overthrowing Hosni Mubarak’s government. ….Considering that many of John McCain’s fellow meddlers throughout NED, IRI, NDI, and Freedom House are generally war mongers, bankers, oilmen, and corporate-funded foundation representatives, it should be no surprise that the next step on Egypt and Tunisia’s “journey to freedom” is the complete economic liberalization of their economies and their full integration into the Wall Street-London centric unipolar “international order.”
After the corporate-funded revolution, the corporate feast.
John McCain’s tour is but a single feature of the overall plan for post-Mubarak Egypt. As early as February, 2011 the US was already preparing a package to assist Egypt’s “opposition groups” to, as TIME magazine put it, “help with constitutional reform, democratic development and election organizing.” It would also come out that billionaire banker George Soros, through his vast network of disingenuous “civil society” organizations, was funding the drafting a of a new constitution for Egypt. By March, a sum of $150 million had been committed by the US State Department for “quickly” building up Egypt’s “democracy.” The money would be used by the same organizations who organized, trained, and channeled funds to the activists that overthrew Hosni Mubarak’s government in the first place, including McCain’s IRI and the NDI.Building up a suitable puppet government, presumably run by globalist-stooge Mohamed ElBaradei, to populate an equally suitable political system made to America’s specifications, with American money, through American-funded organizations will now be coupled with an economic “fund” aimed at manipulating and reordering Egypt’s economy.
The Kerry, McCain, Lieberman S.618 bill claims that Tunisian-American and Egyptian-American Enterprise Funds will assist the people of Egypt and Tunisia in forming a “political and economic system that respects universal values” and of course makes “the investment environment more attractive to domestic and international investors.” These “universal values” are determined by the current Wall Street-London hegemony and their contrived international institutions, not the Egyptian people, thus negating the possibility of any genuine progress made amidst 6 months of misguided, foreign-funded struggle and bloodshed.The “Funds” will be managed by 4 private citizens of the US, and 3 of each respective country, appointed by the President of the United States who will select people who “have had successful business careers and demonstrated experience and expertise in international and particularly emerging markets investment activities.” In other words, these “Funds” are designed to help fold Egypt into the “international order” economically, while the US State Department’s NED-funded organizations fold Egypt into the “international order” politically.The “international order,” in turn, is not some altruistic progressive paragon of equality and brotherhood amongst nations, but rather as degenerate globalist policy wonk Robert Kagan puts it, a world order that “serves the needs of the United States and its allies, which constructed it.”
With that in mind, it makes perfect sense as to why Hosni Mubarak refused to become part of it, and why, despite managing a fairly reliable client-state in the service of the West, it was inevitable that he would have to be removed in order to implement Egypt’s full integration into this “international order.”Indeed this is the end game in Egypt, Tunisia, Syria, Libya, Thailand, Myanmar, and eventually China and Russia – to form a homogeneous, centrally controlled, one world government where megalomaniacs arbitrarily contrive the rules by which the rest of humanity is made to live.
As seen in Libya, such arbitrary rules, and the contrived institutions that enforce them, can just as easily be cast aside when the self-serving, unaccountable agenda of the global corporate-financier elitedecides. Such is the danger of absolute, centralized power and why boycotting and replacing entirely these corporations that are now parading around Egypt’s Cairo must be foremost on our agenda.
