With Friends Like These....


"True friends stab you in the front."

-Oscar Wilde (Author, 1854-1900)

Today, Hosni Mubarak finally announced his resignation as dictator of Egypt. When the announcement was made, Tahrir Square erupted with long-awaited joy. Although the United States Corporate government officials would like the public to perceive them as being on the side of the Egyptian people, the U.S. was most clearly supporting the corrupt regime. Only through dogged persistence, over 300 tragic martyrs, and countless injuries, were the Egyptian people able to hold off the Frankenstein created by the U.S. war machine.

Though Obama and Hillary Clinton spoke in confusing, Orwellian language about their support for the Egyptian people, U.S. actions over the last 30 years spoke way louder. When Navy Admiral Mike Mullen visited Egypt to confer with Mubarak last February, 2010, he had this to say about the meeting: "More than anything else, I come to see good friends- just had a very engaging, thoughtful meeting with the president, who was very kind with his time. I use this relationship as a standard-bearer....in so many ways in terms of what I would like to see achieved in other relationships that are much newer than this.(emphasis added)." Guess you will have to find a new standard, Mullen, because your boy just got thrown out on his ass. If this is athe template of the kind of life the U.S. is hoping to impose on the rest of the world, what does that say about our values?

Defense Secretary Gates gushed over Mubarak's leadership after a 2009 meeting: "Our own military has benefited from the interaction with Egyptian armed forces, one of the most professional and capable in the region. We are always looking to expand these ties through education, training,and exercise." The U.S. military is no where close to the wisdom of the Egyptian Army who finally realized that if they were given absurd orders to fire on civilians, they would instead turn their guns on the commander that issued the order. That is unlikely in the U.S. military where enlistees are all volunteers rather than conscripted like the Egyptians. More often than not, U.S. military are more suseptible to be easily indoctrinated with the army's goals.

The U.S. is able to used these brainwashed individuals and discard them like old dishrags when they are finished with them. Any new teenage recruit or foreigner being wooed by the corporate U.S. Army should consider these facts before agreeing to help the new world order's continual war against individual freedom:

With friends like these, who needs enemies? Like Hugo Chavez said after the Tunisians ran Ben Ali and his slut wife out of the country, "See how the United States, after using such-and-such a president for years, as soon as he hits a crisis, they abandon him. That's how the devil pays."

The new Egyptian government would be wise before making any new deals with the U.S. corporate government whose only wish is to cater to Israel, exploit the Suez Canal, deprive the Egyptian people from reaping the benefits of the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer, and continue control of the Egyptian people through international banks' fiat currencies.
