WASHINGTON (Reuters) – An envoy of President Barack Obama privately urged Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Tuesday to prepare for a transition of power, the closest the United States has come to urging Mubarak to step aside.

    Is this indicative of the fact that Mubarak is nothing but a puppet for U.S. interests or what? Our ‘envoy’ is giving him his marching orders! Egypt along with Israel receive generous ‘foreign aid’ from the U.S. for the purpose of synthetic regional stabilization linked to the safe passage of oil etc. They are still enemies and will be so until the end of time regardless of the U.S. acting as referees via palm-greasing foreign aid.

    Unfortunately we’re flat, dead broke as a nation with even ‘aid’ money having to be borrowed. Sounds like the last days of Rome when they could no longer afford to pay tribute to barbarians at the gate. Although the Middle East is geographically a long way off, the consequences of that region going critical to the point of all out war is quite possible. Oil is the life’s blood of the world at large. Any lengthy, major disruption would wreak havoc on the West as well as other nation’s with growing economies.

    No doubt the CIA has pre-groomed puppets via ‘democratic elections’ to fill Mubarak’s shoes once he exits giving the Egyptian people “change they can believe in” too…no? / : |

  2. I am beginning to feel Obama’s plan to curry favor with the Muslim world is to simply give it time to become a super caliphate which will subjugate Europe and wipe out Israel.

        Great link Almandine…! So it seems you, myself and fellow posters to this link and the site in general have a good nose for intrigue in high places. Things don’t simply happen, but generally have a more complex palette of intrigue behind them.

        Gee I thought our President is a Christian man, born in Hawaii as seen on TV…no?


        He surely knows how to roll the rrrrr’s when he says Holy Koran. / : |
