Egypt’s struggle for self-control
Three years of weariness, from 2011 until now, we witnessed a nation’s hope to break crusty chains of autocracy in favor of freshly minted democracy. As Ra’s sun sets across the plains of Giza, optimism is fading faster than camel spit in the Sahara at high noon.
False flags gave us Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan as dependents for American taxpayers. In all, the U.S. government has spent more than $7.6 trillion on defense and homeland security since the 9/11 attacks.
Egypt’s current Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s junta is fashioning its self into a ‘you are f**ked’ fascist state more lethal than three decades of commander Muhammad Hosni El Sayed Mubarak ruling the roost. Mubarak’s sticky oppression and one million-man army repression ruled unchallenged, until one day someone flipped the switch and then another, and now a movie, more familiar than not, is premiering. The film is an epic horror flick with shadowy characters in Armani knock-off suits pulling the strings of bad actors on the world stage. The latest main dude puppet is dressed in khaki, shades (sun glasses), and more gold braid rick rack on a military warrior slave soldier than Napoleon.
Facts about Egypt
Fact One: Over 40% of the Egyptian economy is controlled by the military/police so corrupt it makes New York City’s Tammany Hall look like amateur night at a local pub in Buckwater, Montana.
Fiefdoms glorified with despotism, double dating nepotism, is the Egyptian corrupt way to control an uneducated lot so immense supposedly 33 million of them filled the streets June 30, 2013, hoping for change, a paycheck, and some bread. The eerie query is “what change?” The number is debated alongside the so-called 22 million who signed a petition foisted by the ‘revolutionary’ Tamarod lot. This mostly unread treatise demanded the resignation of the then next current president, Dr. Mohamed Morsi. Showcased in this is how to boost a coup deploying Hollywood fantasy?
The eleventh richest man in Africa backed the Tamarod; Naquib Sawiris tweets on about his support for Tamarod. As big daddy war bucks Sawiris smothered the Tamarod group with funding, while doling out office space, equipment, and promises. The fact he was a stalwart backer of the old regime (Mubarak) who had thrown his considerable advantages behind the secular opposition to Morsi seemed to go unnoticed by the unclean masses or the snotty youth Tamarod movement. Co-optation is a ring in the nose of any revolution.
Fact two: Installing a military coup in Egypt by arresting Egypt’s first legitimate civilian elected democratic president, Dr. Mohamed Morsi, began in June of 2012 (yes, you read that right). The subsequent arrest of various Muslim Brotherhood leaders and Dr. Morsi in June of 2013 is chapter one of al-Sisi Sawiris Hitler’s playbook.
Egypt turned inside out during an 18-day siege of Tahrir Square; known as the Arab Spring. This battle by the people in 2011 forced the resignation of tyrant Mubarak and his arrest. The people’s strident blaring for democracy subsequently was trampled under by the roar of tanks, lung-choking tear gas, gang rapes, and sniper killings as al-Sisi Sawiris destroyed the future to re-establish the past. The junta’s latest installation of high tech fencing, draped with Egyptian flag bunting is to stop any further protesting in the square. Unless one is invited to a celebratory party by the junta for al-Sisi’s rise to the presidency, there will be no more happenings in Tahrir Square. It is symbolic. It is also cruel and curt, but not art; the fence, I mean.
Fact three: The world is aghast or head deep in White Desert sands witnessing 22,000+ protesters including 20 respected journalists smacked with clubs, beaten more, and tortured-detained by the Egyptian junta over the last several months. Children were murdered by paid thugs or hauled off by military police (or the same in different clothing), because kids marched in the streets chanting “freedom, justice, and bread.” Becoming martyrs for a revolution going in 15 different directions, headless if not shoeless, and certainly bread-less, makes martyrdom a growth industry. The four-finger clan (anti-coup, pro-Morsi, some MB) keep at it, throughout the neighborhoods of Cairo and beyond.
Twenty-two thousand Egyptian workers in one town outside of Cairo went on strike February 8, 2014, because the junta has not fulfilled its promises. The cotton thread machines stopped. The shipping dock folded. The workers went home. There will be more shutdowns (now doctors, police, and nurses are on strike). There always are when worker-bees need the basics to keep looms pumping and medical help available.
Fact four: The nearly one billion dollar per month tourism industry of camel rides around the Great Pyramid at Giza, ritzy hotel rooms, tours of the Nile on a felucca, and diving into the Red Sea is what the hospitality industry believes is hovering as an evaporating mirage. While the junta glad-hands “all is well,” empty airports and layoffs of hotel staff portend an economics never to become real again.
Millions of fish in a massive die-off in the Nile perplexes scientists. Some folks are praying the ten plagues (water to blood, frogs, gnats or lice, boils, diseased livestock, thunder and hail, flies, locusts, darkness, and death of the first born) stay away while others are praying any plague goes viral. It is barely reported that swine flu, bird flu, and air pollution are reaching scary numbers with many of the martyrs known to be first-born children.
University students are not allowed to protest subject to immediate detainment including three burka attired young women who were not even part of a demonstration. These followers of Islam were innocent and happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. These young ladies are in jail.
Fact five: At every corner in dire straights Egypt, people twist and turn trying to figure how to feed themselves and get family and friends out of harm’s way. Raging against each other, against the junta, against themselves, against the revolution, and against their neighbors, is societal pro forma with a pallor of corpus depression oozing across the nation. An estimated 400,000 to 600,000 refugees mark Egypt’s latest exodus due to fear of arrest, for their support of the MB, or merely being noisy poets (without poetry, MENA would be deaf), or because doctors only make $300 a month.
“Inflated food prices are not a new phenomenon in a country that is the world’s biggest importer of wheat, where the population (over 80.7 million) has long risen more rapidly than production, and where up to half of the produce rots in the heat on the way to market. But a recent rate of inflation has significantly raised Egypt’s disastrous economic predicament.”
Fact six: Assistance to Egypt became a fixture of U.S. foreign policy after the 1979 Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty, and total aid to the country has topped $1 billion every year since. Before 1970, U.S. aid to Egypt rarely reached $100 million per year. Military aid, which Cairo largely spends on U.S. weapons and other war materials, has held steady at $1.3 billion for well over two decades. In fiscal 2012, only four countries received more in U.S. assistance: Israel, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq.
Sales from 44 US-based producing companies accounted for over 60% of all arms sales by the top 100 producers in 2010, with Lockheed Martin topping the list at $35.7 Billion worth of arms sales in 2010; these reported numbers are over three years old.
On February 11, 2014, a shiny gauntlet thrown down belies the next nearest and dearest false flag of the American govt./corporate state/deep state. One more war machine pinging high numbers, slated to get underway, growls across a world shattering in climatic change and human apathy. The call to action centers on the Sinai and Suez Canal in Egypt.
Fact seven: The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is the premier advisor of foreign policy to the White House, and many contend it has been the surging, purging Lurch behind the throne, for decades. One gander at the board of directors, paid advisors, bloggers, and executive leadership, and all is verified. Snuggled into the CFR are the supreme wealthy foxes in charge of a clucking, scratching hen house, amiss in too many roosters laying lethal eggs, festering nests so thick and hefty, a skyscraper in Dubai could get lost in the layers. This is par for clubbers who dictate the globalizing shebang, referred to as American commerce abroad.
Today’s CFR dissemination (keep reading) is dated February 13, 2014, yet it is only February 11, 2014 when it is disseminated. ‘Jumping the gun,’ or arrogance, or a typo is not the issue. It maybe a sidebar yet more needs to float across the cesspool.
“This is where the United States can be most helpful but, to be successful, American policymakers will need to reassure Egyptian officers that Washington stands with them in the fight against terrorism and extremism. Specifically, the administration and the Congress should give the Egyptian military the tools and technology it needs to counter extremist violence: Release suspended weapons systems, especially the Apache helicopters; establish a standing group of American and Egyptian officers to coordinate assistance coherently; develop a trilateral American-Egyptian-Israeli security/intelligence/counter-terrorism mechanism that facilitates the flow of information among the security establishments of all three countries.”
The trilateral corporate agenda for Egypt
There you have it: The basis for the American corporate state to carry forward the agenda of the Yank/Israeli/Egyptian junta; justified, signed, and nearly delivered, the very next ‘false flag.’ The fact that Iraq, Iran, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Egypt are Muslim-based geo-political cultures, I leave for you to draw your own conclusions.
