The Battle for Egypt - The People vs. Washington

Politics / Middle East Feb 06, 2011 - 05:17 AM GMT

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Politics

As it now stands on 5 February, Washington has engineered the Egyptian situation to where revolution is repressed, installation of a military regime is proposed, and the West can go back to business as usual, or so it hopes.


The fire of revolt in Egypt will only rage stronger and require greater repressive measures in due time. The Egyptian Army did not take actions - or sides - during the protests knowing full well whatever regime change was provoked by the protesters would place them in power. The media will echo the rationales of the ruling classes of the West as it usually does until enough bruised and beaten reporters shed their corporate paychecks and side with real Democracy like the key anchor at Nile TV did.

Anti-West sentiment in North Africa threatens to become more focused against America as the core outside and illegitimate power-broker shaping its destiny and the key adversary to challenge. This anti-Americanism, of course, gives the American (and British) right-wing ample excuse to amplify its war against Islam, if not against all Arabs. Prime Minister David Cameron's ill-timed (or perfectly timed) assault on multi-culturism in Britain on 4 February begins a coordinated scheme of ethnic nationalism there, not unlike the one its counterparts in the American Tea Party conduct from their platform of hate-mongering and incendiary rhetoric channeled by the Murdoch machine. Alas, O'Reilly, Beck and Palin are tolerated under "free speech" by even the politicians and activists they attack and are thusly enabled.

As in America, Britain eventually will need to face down the EDL in its Parliament, for Mr. Cameron has opened the door to them and to the Murdochs.

But already with so much blood on its hands in the Middle-East, how can the West "stand back" or "stand down" now? Like Mubarak's regime, the Washington Consensus intends to prevail bringing to Egypt another "color revolution" of hand-picked puppet candidates, IMF debt bondage, and neoliberal free-market reforms. In the end, it will be said that this was determined by the Egyptian people.

I have strong doubts the Washington Consensus and, overall, the West will prevail from this point forward.
