Revolution In Egypt: Will The US Hijack The Revolution, And Corrupt Egypt's Future?

We have all been watching the events today in Egypt with great interest... The Mubarak regime has now been doing a desperate gambit by both hiring thugs and using them against the peaceful demonstrators, as well as bring in Israeli weapons (and Israeli agents) for crowd control or to eventually crush the revolution!   

After a night of violence, today the crowds in Tahrir Square in central Cairo  have been more subdued and relatively quiet in spite of all the Mubarak thug violence.  Primarily this is to give them some respite, and to have them ready for tomorrow, which is called the day that they want Mubarak officially out, or their "Day Of Departure".  Guaranteed the crowds on February 4th will be something to behold!

But many people are wondering where all the rhetoric is that has not been coming, and should be coming, from the US Government itself, and primarily the US President, Barry Soetoro.    We know that something is definitely being schemed by the American administration for when Mubarak is removed as President of Egypt, and I suspect the worst.  

I am saying to my readers right here and right now that the US and their masters in Israel have already selected the next corrupt puppet to replace Mubarak, as their method of keeping Egypt under their firm control!

To back up my own assertions that the US is ready for Mubarak's replacement, and they are planning to continue to corrupt Egypt's future, I want to present the following article from Malik Sekou Osei, at Uruknet (www.uruknet.info), entitled: "The US Will Hijack Egypt's Revolution: Mubarak Belongs In The Past --Columnist Fears U.S. Will Corrupt Egypt's Future", and I have that entire article right here for my own readers to view:

Mohamed ElBaradei (left) meets with President Obama


February 3, 2011

The tactics of the Obama administration towards Egypt has flowed from two strategic aims at this point: defending the Egyptian capitalist neo-colonialist state and maintaining Egypt as the key player of American imperialist foreign policy in the Mediterranean, North Africa and throughout the Middle East.

The poor people of Egypt and the insurgent masses must not permit themselves the slightest illusion in the intention and plans of President Barack Obama. The president and his advisors in the Pentagon and the CIA are determined to contain, defuse and eventually crush the revolutionary movement.

The events in the last few weeks took the Obama administration by surprise. The Obama administration did not foresee the mass revolt against Washington’s long time asset, the Egyptian head-of-state Hosni Mubarak. Even as tens of thousands of people and young were defying the police violence last Tuesday, at this point US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was vouching for the constancy of the Mubarak government.

The US is heavily invested—politically, economically and military—in the Mubarak regime. Its reluctance to dispense summarily with the dictator is not an expression of sentimentality. Rather, the United States fears that the too hasty scraping of Mubarak will demoralize and emasculate the confidence of other dictators on the CIA payroll in the dependability and trustworthiness of Washington and its support. However, in the final analysis, Mubarak’s fate is of a secondary matter. Of exceptionally greater concern to Washington is the survival of the Egyptian military and security services upon which capitalist rule depends.

At this point, the Obama administration is concerned that an attempt to use the army to crack down on the protestors could lead to the military’s collapse. It is not certain that the troops can be relied on to shoot down citizens on the streets of Alexandria, Cairo, Dum Yat, Abu Mena and other cities that may be the only way to save Mubarak.

US policymakers are haunted by the precedent of the Iranian Revolution of 1979. For Washington had not prepared a political alternative to the Shah, Reza Pahlavi, and the Iranian military cracked beneath the pressure of the revolution. The result was the loss of a critical client state in the Persian Gulf.

Short term US policy is to shore up the Egyptian military and intelligence apparatus—hence we see the appointment of the intelligence chief and former general Omar Suleiman as vice president—and to prepare a political alternative to Mubarak if he decides not to step down. But it should be noted that any replacement that was to be endorsed and certified by Washington will be nothing but a puppet providing a pseudo-democratic illusion for a new military regime.

The one candidate for this task is a Mohamed ElBaradei, who at this point is being put forward and endorsed by most of the US media. A faithful envoy of the Egyptian comprador ruling elite, ElBaradei flew back from his home in Vienna last week for the explicit purpose of heading off a revolutionary overthrow of the Mubarak regime.

The Muslim Brotherhood has agreed to back ElBaradei as a way to have political patronage from Washington.

Clinton made the absurd and ridiculous statement: "We continue to urge the Egyptian government, as the United States has for 30 years, to respond to the legitimate aspirations of the Egyptian people and begin to take concrete steps to implement democratic and economic reform."

What has this 30-year campaign for democratic reform in Egypt consisted of? Piling Mubarak with $1.5 billion a year in aid, overwhelmingly military, and lauding him as a dependable and steadfast supporter in the war against Iraq, the defense of Israel and the "War on Terror." Not only has the US been in cahoots with the Mubarak regimes murder and torture of political opponents, but the US had also used Mubarak’s intelligence agencies and police as tortures-for-hire in
Washington’s policy of kidnapping and "renditioning" alleged terrorist.

The Obama administration knows and understands that whatever government that it subsidizes will not end the political disaster in Egypt. For it is impossible for any capitalist regime to meet a single one of the social and political demands of masses—for jobs, an end to poverty in the cities and countryside, and the abolition of the brutally repressive police organizations.

The social crises can't be handled by the comprador government of Egypt in alliance with Israel that has been an essential component of the country’s strategic role in the Middle East since the trip of President Anwar Sadat, Mubarak’s predecessor, to Jerusalem in 1977. The money corrupt Egyptian elite is too completely tied to US imperialism to face or carry out any genuine reform in the country.

One can be more than certain that behind all of the events that is currently going on in Egypt, behind the scenes the American Pentagon is looking into the inventory of every regiment, brigade, and branch of the Egyptian military to decide which forces can be relied upon to carry out protecting American interests in the region.

In an interview posted on Youtupe, Jon B. Alterman of the Center for Strategic and international Studies in Washington says: "As in Tunisia, the protests appear to represent a largely leaderless movement with no clear agenda and no way to seize power."

It's this political vacuum that the US and its clients want to exploit. The development of revolutionary forces requires a clear political strategy, based on an understanding of the historical background, the international context and the class dynamics of the revolution. The mass movement cannot have any confidence in any pseudo-democratic reformer and the more than compromised representatives of the Egyptian elite.

For history is on our side, but not time.

NTS Notes:  I agree with the assertions in this article that the US, and of course Israel, have already selected the next stooge to replace Mubarak and continue Egypt's enslavement to US and Israeli interests.   

The obvious first move towards continuing US hegemony in Egypt was to put the Pro-Israeli, and full American trained shill, Omar Suleiman, in as the newly created office of  "Vice President" of Egypt.   This man is as corrupt as they come, and there are reports that have come out that tell of his brutality and corruption as head of Intelligence and as a former General! 

Another move by the US is to promote another bought and paid for American controlled shill, Mohamed El Baradei, through the US controlled media as the logical replacement for Mubarak.   Most people are also unaware that this man is firmly in the US pocket, and will do nothing for the people of Egypt, except to continue the status quo with American and Israeli interests intact!

What must be done is to have Egyptians brought up to speed on the truth about these so called "replacements" for Mubarak.   If they want true freedom, then they must stay absolutely stay clear of these American shills as their new leader.   However, I guarantee that the US and Israel will do everything possible to prevent that from ever happening even to the point of having whomever the Egyptians were to choose other than their own preselected "candidates" assassinated before he takes office!

Lets hope that the Egyptian people are smarter than this, and are able to choose their own future rather than one chosen for them.   We can only hope....

I put up two posts today on this. One is from the 1980's and the other is more about it. It details Israel's long term goals in the Arab world and sadly they are on target. This was before the writing of PNAC but created by the same group of terroriss/neocons. Severl of Bush's war pushing cabinet used to serve Netanyahu in HIS cabinet!

They bemoan the loss of the Sinai when they "erred" in signing at Camp David and are seething to get it back. They want the Nile waters. Their methods worked well in Iraq, mess the country up until it is shattered and torn from within. That is what they want to do in Egypt, get the people all fighting ~ divide and conquer as usual.

My friend in Cairo tells me that the police are all in plainclothes and going around beathing whoever they fancy and they are responsible for most of the looting and deaths including those of 2 infants.

Yesterday's chaos was created by these people who arrived in buses with truncheons and a will to make the protests look wild. Also, the men on horses and camels were dressed to look more like "ragheads" so that the west might more easily dismiss the whole situation.....

They also have been planting Islamicists in there to discredit the movement. Until now the protesters have been very Western in dress and they have shut up the few who went all Islamicist. By making sure the West sees these planted Islamicists to confuse them so they think it a religious movement....

Oh, BTW, although the people are for real and have risen, the NWO biggies are setting the globe up for international intifada.... Europe is included in this...

I do agree with most of the article. Nothing good comes from the USA and Israel. But the part related about ElBaradei is total NONSENSE and is backed with nothing, null, zero. I feel like it is just being thrown in as a subliminal message.

I have no idea why this keeps popping up every now and then.

I know, the man, judging by appearances, looks so quiet and does not the profile of a leader, but I personally know from a friend of mine who is pretty close to him that ElBaradei is not what he looks, but he has very sharp teeth.

But, anyways, time will tell.

Sorry, but the US promoting El Baradei is enough for me to suspect him as being one of their choices as their newest Egyptian puppet.

And thanks for the info, Noor....We knew that Mubarak would stoop this low to bring in his thugs.. and that action continues as we speak!

The people of Egypt are better educated than their American counterparts, so some should have an understanding of the evil intentions of the US and Nazi Israel.
They will be best served if they knock the state sponsored TV station off the air to protect the weaker minded from the propaganda and fear mongering fascist agenda the US citizenry fell for after the false flag attacks of 911.
They should also adopt an anti-American, anti-Israeli stance and close the Suez Canal to all war ships. Neither one holds a favorable view of the Egyptian people.
It is of the utmost importance that the Arab world realize what the ZioNazi cabal is up to.
The Arab world should unite as a nuclear armed entity. Otherwise the ZioNazis will continue killing their children for illegal organ procurement and putting others up for sale as slaves in the sex trade (some suspicions about, perpetrator identities, and fate of missing American kids as well) and dangerous mining operations uninhibited by labor laws and safety concerns.
