Oppose US-backed “transition” in Egypt

06-02-2011 18:58

"In that context, Obama’s words Friday have an ominous ring. He reiterated previous statements that the US government opposes the use of violence either by the government or the protesters—as though there were an equivalence between a brutal military dictatorship, armed to the teeth, and with a long record of torture and murder, and the Egyptian masses, who successfully defended themselves in Tahrir Square with their bare hands and sheer force of numbers.
If Mubarak is replaced by a caretaker regime based on the military, both the Obama administration and the American media will swing behind the new rulers, vilifying all popular opposition as “terrorism” and endorsing the bloodiest measures of state repression.
Far from representing a concession to the democratic demands of the masses, such a regime would represent a carefully constructed roadblock. It would cement the role of the Egyptian government as a servant of US imperialism, collaborator with Israel, and enemy of the Palestinian people and the oppressed masses of Egypt itself."

UG#535 - Peter Dale Scott on The US War Machine & C.O.G.

05-02-2011 03:27

This week, 2 contributions by Peter Dale Scott, a long established researcher into what he calls 'deep politics'.

"Suleiman has no legitimacy. He was appointed by Mubarak."

04-02-2011 03:21

"Mubarak has no legitimacy.

Suleiman has no legitimacy. He was appointed by Mubarak.

The call in Egypt is for true democracy.

Democracy is the last thing that the U.S. wants for it’s third world backyard.

With democracy, the Egyptian people will reject the fundamentals of U.S. policy in that region.

The Israeli government would have to deal fairly with a neighbor on more or less equal terms, something it has never been willing to do, due to it’s fundamentally racists attitude toward Arabs."

What's really happening with the EU Cosmetics Directive

03-02-2011 15:34

It was recently leaked to the Guardian newspaper that the European Parliament will probably be asked to postpone a ban intended to impose a Europe-wide ban on the use of animals for testing cosmetic products, (and their ingredients), and a simultaneous ban on the sale of cosmetic products tested on animals after the European ban comes into force.

White Coat - The Media's Moral Creepback

It’s not hard to spot the scientists in commercial advertising: they’re the ones wearing white coats. Whether hawking toothpaste, skin cream, or even cigarettes, the white coat vouches for the presence of a highly-trained, disinterested expert ensuring product safety and effectiveness.

Egypt - the real US position

02-02-2011 12:28

The Council of Foreign Relations is the top US think tank. It devised the UN before the 2nd World War and top politicians and media are members. According to the top man, they are not too sure about the outcome of the revolution that they inspired. Note, WIkileaks claims that the CIA had been planning this for two or three years.

Middle East at Strategic Crossroads, U.S. as Well

The Egyptian shock waves have already hit Israel and the Israeli possible reactions are potentially the most dangerous. “An Egyptian government that is less cooperative with Israel .. could make Israel more prone to unpredictable unilateral actions, creating greater instability throughout the region,” warned Jonathan Alterman, director of the Middle East Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Egypt and Tunisia – The 'arc of crisis' being radicalized! By Zahir Ebrahim

30-01-2011 21:56

Can anyone make sense of this Hegelian mind-fck: replacing their own installed tyrant who is empire-friendly, with a street revolution that is empire-inimical? It is like red-teaming blue-teaming an exercise where only the observers know what the real game is, but either team thinks their battle is real.

Egypt: Cue the dirty tricks, false flags to discredit pro-democracy movement

30-01-2011 14:55

Egyptian soldiers stand guard in front of the National Museum in Cairo, 29/01/11
The looting of Cairo’s world-famous Egyptian Museum over the weekend seems to have engendered the desired news headlines.

‘Looters smash ancient treasures’, ‘Looters decapitate mummies’, ‘Looters rip off heads of artifacts’ etc., read a rash of headlines, following the apparent breaking into the country’s national museum, which is said to house the world’s biggest of Pharaonic antiquities.

However, it has since emerged, although with much less headline coverage, that some of the would-be looters apprehended by protesters outside the museum were identified as working for the state’s interior ministry.

The incident may be just a foretaste of a wider range of propaganda stunts or false flags, including atrocities and fatalities, that the Mubarak regime will enact in order to discredit the protest movement sweeping that nation.

WikiLeaks exposes US complicity in murder, torture, by Egyptian government and m

29-01-2011 12:22

"The cables demonstrate the courage of the Egyptian demonstrators in the face of the brutality of the Mubarak regime, as WikiLeaks editor Maria Luisa Rivera notes in introducing them. “As an Internet blackout imposed by the state covers the country, every citizen and grassroots organization will now be exposed to arbitrary police forces,” she writes. “As secret documents from US prove, during the demonstrations today, authorities might use physical threats, legal threats and extraordinary laws such the Emergency Law as an excuse to persecute and prosecute activists during the pacific demonstrations taking place in Cairo and other cities.”
She continues, “Excessive use of force by police during the protests [has already] led to arbitrary executions and detentions in a vast array of abuses, a situation that is known and acknowledged in the past by US diplomats based in Egypt. It is important to bear in mind the long record of police abuse and torture by Egyptian police forces.”

Make the whole world aware of the slimy role the US has played in Egypt. The US will try to distance itself from this regime. But one of the reasons it is so hated is precisely because of it’s close ties to US imperialism. Spread these notes widely, everywhere."

Are We Witnessing the Start of a Global Revolution?

27-01-2011 19:50

"Understand that the “War on Terror” is a complete lie, a concoction meant to obscure the imperial attack on the worldwide insurrection of the people’s revolt the imperialist ruling class knew would be coming. Of course 911 was a false flag attack perpetrated largely by imperialism to serve as a defense against this revolt. But before that the outlines of this “defense of the system” was likely behind the crash of a jumbo jet in the ocean when an Egyptian pilot, with no record of radical ideas, supposedly crash dived a fully loaded passenger plane shouting, “God is great.” One can review and study these manipulations and begin to see the strategy and heartless efforts being waged by our rulers in a desperate attempt to maintain our world in bondage. The U.S. will claim to be defending democracy and human welfare while attempting to utterly crush both."

"The Palestine Papers reveal that Fatah was obsessed with maintaining political supremacy over Hamas, with Israel’s cooperation, especially following the 2006 electoral victory of the Islamist movement. Documents obtained by Al Jazeera also show the extent to which the Palestinian Authority cracked down on Hamas institutions to weaken the group and strengthen its own relationship with Israel."

SHIFT MAGAZINE: From the Defence of the Present to the Control of the Future

25-01-2011 11:03

The recent student unrest has massively expanded political possibilities in the UK and Europe. The game is afoot and the next move is to generalise the struggle beyond the education sector. For many an ‘anti-cuts’ message is the way to do this. There is a danger, however, that the logic of this position contains the mechanism of its own failure. We urgently need to foment a shift away from a politics that defends our own powerlessness, to one where we can become the collective authors of our own histories.

Police dirty tactics and indymedias dirty laundry

23-01-2011 19:00

The shit hit the fan when Schnews published it's story on how a shadowy police unit has spent years planting false stories and sowing discontent among activist groups using the comments sections of campaign blogs and IMC UK. It instantly became impossible for indymedia admins to continue to claim that they did not have any access to IP logs on the IMC UK site. Airing indymedias dirty laundry could not have come at a worse time with all the distrust generated by the recent outing of a number of deep infiltration undercover cops within activist circles.
