After playing a role Wall Street and London meddlers had hoped would translate into the Egyptian military holding the bag while corporate-fascists like those escorted through Cairo by John McCain in June 2011 filled it with Egypt's wealth, it seems as if the Egyptian military, through the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCARF) has gotten cold feet.
With predictable exactitude, the very same protesters, led by the very same US-created April 6 youth movement and Muslim Brotherhood, have once again poured into the streets to either get the military back on the right, Wall Street/London approved track, or as Council on Foreign Relations "fellow" Steve Cook hopes, oust the military from power all together.
Waiting in the wings for this eventual collapse and the expedited presidential elections April 6 is "fighting for," is US-backed Mohammed ElBaradei, another "Nobel Peace Prize" carrying imposter, along side President Barack Obama, and Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi, bent in perpetual servitude to the corporate-fascist agenda of Wall Street and London.
Predictably the West came to his rescue using the now fully exhausted ploy of planting "Wikileaks" documents "revealing" just how contemptible the West saw ElBaradei in an attempt to rehabilitate his image as "anti-West" and therefore "pro-Arab" and thus more likely to be able to foist the US agenda upon Egyptians.
That April 6 was waiting at the airport in Cairo (and subsequently arrested) in 2010 for ElBaradei's return to Egypt, after the youth movement had received training via the US State Department in New York a full two years earlier, is highly significant.
That April 6 is now back in Tahrir Square, with their man ElBaradei still lurking in Egypt's political underbrush bidding his time, and as violence starts all over again, it appears something has gone awry with the West's heavy investments in the Egyptian military.
Such a dichotomy of incentives and consequences are a reoccurring theme in US foreign policy and have been written about extensively by US policy makers, in particular toward Iran, where economic aid of every kind imaginable is counterbalanced with the threat of everything from fomenting street mobs against the Iranian government, to funding outright terrorism, to even unilateral first strikes against the Islamic Republic.
And finally, as people fret over which side to take, it should be noted that no real revolution of any kind will take place until people both understand the balance of power currently held in the world today and how to change it pragmatically rather than politically.
