So the Revolution was televised after all. Hell has frozen over and Hosni Mubarak has stepped down as the strongman… er, “President” of Egypt, after repeatedly telling the world to go screw, he was staying put and nothing would ever dislodge his grip on power. Until yesterday. Something happened and now Mr. Mubarak has stepped down. The entire blogosphere is bursting with exultant giddiness, trumpeting their posts with titles such as, “The Triumph of Leaderless Revolution,” “Listen to Egypt Roar,” “Toppling the Autocrat,” and ” Ain’t that Good News!” It appears the Egyptian people have “won.” Let’s see what they won.
1. Military Rule. This does not bode well. Anything named the “Supreme Council of the Armed Forces” can’t be a good thing, or even an improvement. While it seems that eroding military support for Mubarak may have contributed to his sudden departure., these guys will be instituting law and order soon enough.
2. A Spy Chief as President. Derisively called, “Mubarak’s Twin,” Omar Suleiman was instrumental in getting America into the Gulf War where Suleiman’s agents so viciously tortured a man into “confessing” that Iran had trained terrorists in the use of biological weapons, which the tortured subject later recanted as a forced confession.
3. A Poor Man’s Democracy. Corruption, poverty and scarcity will still be around for a long time. It remains to be seen if the Muslim Brotherhood gets a shot at power in Egypt under military rule. You know which side the US and Israeli governments are hoping will come through. Oh, did I say corruption, poverty and scarcity will still be around?
3a. American politicians talking shit and invalidating the liberal democratic principles that they are sworn to uphold.
Florida GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released a statement urging “the unequivocal rejection of any involvement by the Muslim Brotherhood and other extremists” in the transition of power.
Egyptians should reject those who “seek to exploit and hijack these events to gain power, oppress the Egyptian people, and do great harm to Egypt’s relationship with the United States, Israel, and other free nations,”
That’s right, Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen. Democracy is only for those who know how to support anti-democratic dictators in a twisted game of geopolitics. You weren’t worried about the oppression of the Egyptian people while our country was supporting their dictator, you incredibly ironic piece of work.
4. Unintended Consequences. America looks like an hypocritical fool as a country constantly preaching democratic values to the world while supporting strongmen and autocrats around the world when it’s in our national interest. The world, not even mentioning your average Egyptian, ain’t gonna forget which side the United States was on.
5. Who the hell know what else will happen to these unfortunate people? They aren’t ready for the Equal Money system because the haven’t heard of it. What will likely happen until they do, is a replay of the other “revolutions” that made things worse for the people who wanted something better. That’s why revolutions never work, and why the Egyptian people will feel that they’ve been duped.
