Repression in Egypt: Made in the USA

February 7, 2011

 

A picture is worth a thousands words.

The picture above is that of an Egyptian protestor holding a tear gas cannister made in the USA, which was fired during the recent revolts in Cairo.

The image is very apt in that it implicitly suggests the broader relationship between America and Egypt: that of a puppetmaster and its puppet.

For the past 30 years, the United States has propped up Hosni Mubarak’s regime with billions of dollars in US military “aid,” some of which was designed for the political repression necessary to keep this pro-USA dictator in power.  

Now that Mubarak has said he will step down, however, the United States is feverishly searching for his replacement, someone with more democratic credentials … like maybe spy chief-turned-Vice-President Omar Suleiman, whose loyalty and devotion to the American Empire and its policies like “enhanced interrogation” and “extraordinary rendition” would make him perfect for the job.

    Your op-ed in the IE- very good reading. You have grasped that radically left quality and anti-American gibberish so well that your naive viewpoint certifies you as shallow AND irrelevant, but I love your well written sputum. Glad this rag is free – no one with any sense would buy it other than other socialist proles like Yu!

    @Fish.

    Congrats. You have mastered the art of American jingospeak.

    Like most American apologists, you can’t address the actual facts (like America’s decades-long military sponsorship of puppet dictators like Hosni Mubarak); you just whine about “anti-Americanism.”

    What you’re really admitting is that telling the truth is anti-American … which it certainly is.
