BREAKING NEWS: MUBARAK STEPS DOWN! We are ALL Egyptians today!
Sweet Jesus, it's happened, the people of Egypt have won!
Now that hundreds of thousands are on the street celebrating Mubarak's demise, America slowly agrees to a 'transition'. Note there was no need during the last 30 years for a 'transition' folks, 30 years of the secret police torturing, 30 years of oppressive dictatorship, 30 years of repressing civil rights, no during that 30 years the authoritarian regime propped up by billions in American military aid that acts as corporate welfare for America's military industrial complex to secure peace for America's 51st state, Israel was perfectly acceptable, but now that Facebook and twitter have undermined all that effort to keep an American backed dictator in place means a 'transition' is now necessary.
And who is that 'transition' going to? Why none other than Vice President Suleiman who helped the US with their CIA torture rendition programs. So now the facade of one dictator slips, America is quick to prop up their next dictator.
Who did America send to discuss this transition, why none other than Frank Wisner whose father oversaw the Iranian coup, whom has shares in Egypts largest bank and whom has worked for a company that represented the current dictator. Unsurprisingly Frank came out supporting Mubarak.
This hasn't been about freedom and democracy for America, it's about subservience and corporate profits.
There is a fear in the West that if the people of Egypt are allowed to elect their own Government that they will elect an Islamic Government, so what? That's democracy, that's the legacy of radicalizing people over decades from grinding poverty, that's what happens when all the aid you give is spent on guns instead of sanitation, fresh water, schools and hospitals. You reap what you sow America, perhaps instead of aiming to prop up the next repressive dictator you give the people of Egypt their freedom and put aid into things that will help the people rather than F-16 fighter planes and naval ships.
What shame that John Key was against the tide of history and supported Mubarak, something he should forever be ashamed of!
For now though this is the moment when the people of Egypt managed to over come America's dictatorship and over throw Mubarak for the freedom we take for granted in the West.
We have just witnessed history, we have witnessed that freedom can overcome America and Israel's desire to deny it, we have witnessed a new generation using facebook and twitter to overcome tyranny.
Congratulations Egypt! We are ALL Egyptians today!
