Washington Faces the Arab Revolts: Sacrificing Dictators to Save the State

To understand the Obama regime’s policy toward Egypt, the Mubarak dictatorship and the popular uprising it is essential to locate it in an historical context. The essential point is that Washington, after several decades of being deeply embedded in the state structures of the Arab dictatorships, from Tunisia through Morocco, Egypt, Yemen, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority, is attempting to re-orient its policies to incorporate and/or graft liberal-electoral politicians onto the existing power configurations.

While most commentators and journalists spill tons of ink about the “dilemmas” of US power , the novelty of the Egyptian events and Washington’s day to day policy pronouncements, there are ample historical precedents which are essential to understand the strategic direction of Obama’s policies.

Historical Background

US foreign policy has a long history of installing, financing, arming and backing dictatorial regimes which back its imperial policies and interests as long as they retain control over their people.

In the past, Republican and Democratic presidents worked closely for over 30 years with the Trujillo dictatorship in the Dominican Republic; installed the autocratic Diem regime in pre-revolutionary Vietnam in the 1950’s; collaborated with two generations of Somoza family terror regimes in Nicaragua; financed and promoted the military coup in Cuba 1952, Brazil 1964, Chile in 1973, and in Argentina in 1976 and the subsequent repressive regimes. When popular upheavals challenged these US backed dictatorships, and a social as well as political revolution appeared likely to succeed, Washington responded with a three track policy: publicly criticizing the human rights violations and advocating democratic reforms; privately signaling continued support to the ruler; and thirdly, seeking an elite alternative which could substitute for the incumbent and preserve the state apparatus, the economic system and support US strategic imperial interests.

For the US there are no strategic relationships only permanent imperial interests, name preservation of the client state. The dictatorships assume that their relationships with Washington is strategic: hence the shock and dismay when they are sacrificed to save the state apparatus. Fearing revolution, Washington has had reluctant client despots, unwilling to move on, assassinated (Trujillo and Diem). Some are provided sanctuaries abroad (Somoza, Batista),others are pressured into power-sharing (Pinochet) or appointed as visiting scholars to Harvard, Georgetown or some other “prestigious” academic posting.

The Washington calculus on when to reshuffle the regime is based on an estimate of the capacity of the dictator to weather the political uprising, the strength and loyalty of the armed forces and the availability of a pliable replacement. The risk of waiting too long, of sticking with the dictator, is that the uprising radicalizes: the ensuing change sweeps away both the regime and the state apparatus, turning a political uprising into a social revolution. Just such a ‘miscalculation’ occurred in 1959 in the run-up to the Cuban revolution, when Washing stood by Batista and was not able to present a viable pro US alternative coalition linked to the old state apparatus. A similar miscalculation occurred in Nicaragua, when President Carter, while criticizing Somoza, stayed the course, and stood passively by as the regime was overthrown and the revolutionary forces destroyed the US and Israeli trained military, secret police and intelligence apparatus, and went on to nationalize US property and develop an independent foreign policy.

Washington moved with greater initiative, in Latin America in the 1980’s.It promoted negotiated electoral transitions which replaced dictators with pliable neo-liberal electoral politicians, who pledged to preserve the existing state apparatus, defend the privileged foreign and domestic elites and back US regional and international policies.

Past Lessons and Present Policies

Obama has been extremely hesitant to oust Mubarak for several reasons, even as the movement grows in number and anti-Washington sentiment deepens. The White House has many clients around the world – including Honduras, Mexico, Indonesia, Jordan and Algeria – who believe they have a strategic relationship with Washington and would lose confidence in their future if Mubarak was dumped.

Secondly, the highly influential leading pro-Israel organizations in the US (AIPAC, the Presidents of the Major American Jewish Organizations) and their army of scribes have mobilized congressional leaders to pressure the White House to continue backing Mubarak, as Israel is the prime beneficiary of a dictator who is at the throat of the Egyptians (and Palestinians) and at the feet of the Jewish state.

As a result the Obama regime has moved slowly, under fear and pressure of the growing Egyptian popular movement. It searches for an alternative political formula that removes Mubarak, retains and strengthens the political power of the state apparatus and incorporates a civilian electoral alternative as a means of demobilizing and de-radicalizing the vast popular movement.

The major obstacle to ousting Mubarak is that a major sector of the state apparatus, especially the 325,000 Central Security Forces and the 60,000 National Guard are directly under the Interior Ministry and Mubarak. Secondly, top Generals in the Army (468,500 members) have buttressed Mubarak for 30 years and have been enriched by their control over very lucrative companies in a wide range of fields. They will not support any civilian ‘coalition’ that calls into question their economic privileges and power to set the political parameters of any electoral system. The supreme commander of the Egyptian military is a longtime client of the US and a willing collaborator with Israel.

Obama is resolutely in favor of collaborating with and ensuring the preservation of these coercive bodies. But he also needs to convince them to replace Mubarak and allow for a new regime which can defuse the mass movement which is increasingly opposed to US hegemony and subservience to Israel. Obama will do everything necessary to retain the cohesion of the state and avoid any splits which might lead to a mass movement – soldier alliance which could convert the uprising into a revolution.

Washington has opened talks with the most conservative liberal and clerical sectors of the anti-Mubarak movement. At first it tried to convince them to negotiate with Mubarak – a dead end position which was rejected by all sectors of the opposition, top and bottom. Then Obama tried to sell a phony “promise” from Mubarak that he would not run in the elections, nine months later.

The movement and its leaders rejected that proposal also. So Obama raised the rhetoric for ‘immediate changes’ but without any substantive measures backing it up. To convince Obama of his continued power base, Mubarak sent his formidable thug-lumpen secret police to violently seize the streets from the movement. A test of strength: the Army stood by; the assault raised the ante of a civil war, with radical consequences. Washington and the E.U. pressured the Mubarak regime to back off – for now. But the image of a pro-democracy military was tarnished, as killings and injuries multiplied in the thousands.

As the pressure of the movement intensifies, Obama cross pressured by the pro Mubarak Israel Lobby and its Congressional entourage on the one hand, and on the other by knowledgeable advisors who call on him to follow past practices and move decisively to sacrifice the regime to save the state while the liberal-clerical electoral option is still on the table.

But Obama hesitates and like a wary crustacean, he moves sideways and backwards, believing his own grandiloquent rhetoric is a substitute for action … hoping that sooner or later, the uprising will end with Mubarakism without Mubarak: a regime able to demobilize the popular movements and willing to promote elections which result in elected officials following the general line of their predecessor.

Nevertheless, there are many uncertainties in a political reshuffle: a democratic citizenry, 83% unfavorable to Washington, will possess the experience of struggle and freedom to call for a realignment of policy, especially to cease being a policeman enforcing the Israeli blockage of Gaza, and providing support for US puppets in North Africa, Lebanon, Yemen, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Secondly free elections will open debate and increase pressure for greater social spending, the expropriation of the seventy billion dollar empire of the Mubarek clan and the crony capitalists who pillage the economy .The masses will demand a reallocation of public expenditure from the overblown coercive apparatus to productive, job generating employment. A limited political opening may lead to a second round, in which new social and political conflicts will divide the anti-Mubarak forces, a conflict between the advocates of social democracy and elite backers of neo-liberal electoralism. The anti-dictatorial moment is only the first phase of a prolonged struggle toward definitive emancipation not only in Egypt but throughout the Arab world. The outcome depends on the degree to which the masses develop their own independent organization and leaders.

    US support for dictatorships in the Middle East, and throughout the world, is an essential component of its imperial policy for control and strategic influence. This policy in the Middle East has an additional role, in the service of Israeli interests and compliance with the AIPAC stiplulations. This unprincipled and hypocritical stance, for a state that claims leadership in the free world and support of democracy, is highlighted in its unquestioning support for Israel, committing violations of international law and defiance of UN resolutions. The US voting pattern in the Security Council, vetoing virtually all resolutions that are critical of Israel, is a clear testimony to this hypocrisy and duplicity.

    Why is it that James Petras can speak to the obvious that many on the Left seem to be either too afraid to say or try to obscure or to shift focus away from. Dr. Petras analysis is nuanced, enlightening, and COMPLETE. He doesn’t attempt to sugar coat the obvious.

    Secondly, the highly influential leading pro-Israel organizations in the US (AIPAC, the Presidents of the Major American Jewish Organizations) and their army of scribes have mobilized congressional leaders to pressure the White House to continue backing Mubarak, as Israel is the prime beneficiary of a dictator who is at the throat of the Egyptians (and Palestinians) and at the feet of the Jewish state.

    Why is this so difficult for the American Left?

    Youthful leader freed from detention energizes Egyptian protests with arrival in square

    The Canadian Press

    By Maggie Michael,Sarah El Deeb, The Associated Press | The Canadian Press – 2 hours 18 minutes ago

    “CAIRO – A young Google executive who helped ignite Egypt’s uprising energized a cheering crowd of hundreds of thousands Tuesday with his first appearance in their midst after being released from 12 days in secret detention. “We won’t give up,” he promised at one of the biggest protests yet in Cairo’s Tahrir Square.

    Once a behind-the-scenes Internet activist, 30-year-old Wael Ghonim has emerged as an inspiring voice for a movement that has taken pride in being a leaderless “people’s revolution.” Now, the various activists behind it _ including Ghonim _ are working to coalesce into representatives to push their demands for President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster….”

    (excerpt from Engdalh’s piece)

    “Kefaya—Pentagon ‘non-violent warfare’ Kefaya is at the heart of mobilizing the Egyptian protest demonstrations that back ElBaradei’s candidacy. The word Kefaya translates to “enough!”

    Curiously, the planners at the Washington National Endowment for Democracy (NED) 7 and related color revolution NGOs apparently were bereft of creative new catchy names for their Egyptian Color Revolution. In their November 2003 Rose Revolution in Georgia, the US-financed NGOs chose the catch word, Kmara! In order to identify the youth-based regime change movement. Kmara in Georgian also means “enough!”

    Like Kefaya, Kmara in Georgia was also built by the Washington-financed trainers from the NED and other groups such as Gene Sharp’s misleadingly-named Albert Einstein Institution which uses what Sharp once identified as “non-violence as a method of warfare.”

    The various youth networks in Georgia as in Kefaya were carefully trained as a loose, decentralized network of cells, deliberately avoiding a central organization that could be broken and could have brought the movement to a halt. Training of activists in techniques of non-violent resistance was done at sports facilities, making it appear innocuous. Activists were also given training in political marketing, media relations, mobilization and recruiting skills.”

    Is Obama behind the destabilization of Egypt to bring younger generation of Egyptians to power to get rid of Mubarak dynasty that is a liability not an asset. Many believe US is trying to construct a friendly opposition trained by NED not to lose the control over Egypt. Please watch the following video:

    {http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1USdMUWbIdo}

    The ‘hero’ of “ the Egyptian revolution”, Wael Said Abbas Ghonim, was brought up in Dubai, United Arab Emirates?

    {http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wael_Ghonim}

    Dubai is a spy network of the United States fomenting ‘color revolution’ for regime change in the region.

    Many ‘green’ traitors in Iran active election ‘fraud’ HOAX, were trained in Dubai. They attended conferences arranged by Gene Sharp (NED), non-violent action, and Peter Ackerman, a judeofascist in the business of ‘regime change’ in Dubai, directed by Iranian traitors who are US citizens, mainly Ramin Ahmadi, Ghaemi, and others.

    Is the United States trying to control Egyptian people’s anger who are fed up with the political and economic situation of Egypt, created by neoliberal economic arrangement let by the Zionist plutocracy?

    {http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2011/02/01/whats-behind-the-tumult-in-egypt/2/}

    Egyptian people must be united against Zionism and imperialism and their agents. Only Egyptian people can determine their LEADERS, not US and Israel. The Egyptian people must identify NED traitors and expose them to the world.

    Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya also offers some useful insights on what is happening in Egypt and why:

    The Division of Egypt: Threats of US, Israeli, and NATO Military Intervention?

    by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya

    9 February 2011

    (excerpts)

    “Egypt cannot be managed by the Mubarak regime, the U.S., Israel, and their allies anymore. Thus, the U.S., Israel, and their allies are now working to divide and destabilize Egypt, as the most powerful Arab state, so that no strategic challenge can emerge from Cairo. The attacks on the peaceful protestors in Cairo’s central Tahrir Square by Mubarak’s club-wielding thugs riding camels and horses was a stage-managed event to build public support outside of the Arab World for having a dictatorial strongman in Cairo. It epitomized every stereotype and incorrect Orientalist attitude about Arabs and the peoples of the Middle East. It would come as no surprise if the U.S., Israel, and Britain played direct or advisory roles in the event.

    Although Mubarak’s thugs are also creating chaos in Egypt to try to keep his regime in power, the doctrine of “managed chaos” is being used by external actors with the Israeli Yinon Plan in mind. Making Egyptians fight against one another and turning Egypt into a divided and insecure state, just like Anglo-American Iraq, appears to be the objective of the U.S., Israel, and their allies. The building tensions between Egyptian Muslims and Egyptian Christians, which includes the attacks on Coptic churches, is tied to this project. In this context, on the thirteenth day of the protests in Egypt, the Mar Girgis Church in the Egyptian town of Rafah, next to Gaza and Israel, was attacked by armed men on motorcycles. [6]

    The White House and Tel Aviv do not want a second Iran in the Middle East. They will do whatever they can to prevent the emergence of a strong and independent Egypt.

    A free Egypt could prove to be a much bigger threat than non-Arab Iran within the Arab World to the objectives of the U.S., Israel, and NATO.”

    Petras, Engdahl, Lendman & Nazemroaya all seem to be in general agreement that israeloamerican involvement in Egypt is to co-opt a possible popular revolt that would bring an Egypt independent of their control, much like what happened in Iran in 1979. They vary in the details they talk about and the emphasis on exactly what is meant by them, though.

    In my opinion, I think israeloamerica (IE: ziofascism, inc. and their regular fascist allies/subordinates) are continuing with their plan to intensify israeloamerican control throughout the Mideast and Central Asia, the “great game” and its related ops. Likely, the recent changes in Turkey are a key to why now, as are the recent popular rejections in Europe to ziofascist/fascist economic piracy (a major part of the protests in Tunisia and Egypt are to the zio-banker’s demands for more “pounds of flesh”). Add in quislings who are getting old in the tooth and less co-operative and one has a potential major regional turnabout of the sort israeloamerica would see its goal of world dominance go to hell.

    So now we are seeing the logical response with these “managed revolutions” who replace old, worn out quislings with new, stealth quislings. This is the neolib method, as opposed to the neocon method of invasion and dictator crackdowns of dissent. The neolibs co-opt the dissent instead. Very zionist approach, the soros style “good cops”, as opposed to the neocon “bad cops”. Head off the real revolution with a phony one.

    Whether by coups or warfare, the israeloamerican plan remains the same. Control, or otherwise neutralise regions that could be eventually useful to their rival China (and its allies). The old great game modernised.

    Just a quick comment. I am skeptical that the U.S. is behind the uprising. I think that would be too risky for the Zionist agenda to lose an asset like Mubarak. The Egyptian people, who were once the pride and flagship of the Arab world, has been eating Zionist crow since Sadat got off the plane in Tel Aviv. If you look at the going on in Egypt from the perspective of racial oppression it is not hard to imagine this kind of upraising given Egypt’s historical place in the Arab world.

    So a backlash against a Zionist puppet IMO was bound to happened. Since Washington dances to their Zionist paymasters and media they are in a bit of a quandary of how to corral Arab aspirations. If Obama’s fails he’ll be out of favor of his Zionist paymasters who are probably suspect of him anyway (Muslim, African American, you know the score). It required Rham Emmanel to give Obama credibility among the AIPAC crowd so the uprising in Egypt will fall on Obama’s lap. Obama has to say one thing and allow the back-channels to do its thing to try to regain control of events.

    All of this is conjecture on my part but I see what’s going on in Egypt as being much too risky a strategy just to remove Mubarak who clearly has been a very competent Zionist lackey for the three decades.

    Since the War on Iraq, Zionist has shown a great deal of hubris. I think the events in Egypt were a surprise them and a reflection of their hubris.

    Here’s a link to an article by the Leveretts from their Race for Iran website …

    [http://www.raceforiran.com/egypt-iran-and-the-shifting-balance-of-power-in-the-middle-east]
    EGYPT, IRAN, AND THE SHIFTING BALANCE OF POWER IN THE MIDDLE EAST

    Some excerpts …

    America’s international standing is under mounting strain on multiple fronts. Nowhere is this more glaring than in the Middle East, where the balance of influence (and hence, power) is shifting away from the United States and toward Iran, Turkey and their allies. This trend may, in fact, accelerate as a consequence of ongoing unrest in Egypt and several other Arab states.

    and …

    It remains to be seen, of course, how much change actually takes place in Egypt and other Arab countries. But, to us, it seems clear that, to the extent that political orders in Egypt, Tunisia, or some other “pro-Western” Arab countries becomes more “authentic” and reflective of popular interests, preferences, and sentiments, those countries will become less enthusiastic about strategic cooperation with the United States and more inclined toward closer relations with the Islamic Republic.

    IMO what we are seeing in Egypt is a national liberation movement against Zionism and Western Imperialism.

What I wrote does not ignore this fact, rather I want people of Egypt not to be directed by NED agents trained by US government.

    The writers I quoted above provided evidence of israeloamerican manipulation in these recent peaceful revolts/protests. I don’t think they are claiming that the people in the countries are all ned agents acting on behalf of israeloamerican geopolitical interests, just some of the leaders of it are. Hopefully, the people of these countries wont let israeloamerica hijack their movements and end up with a “kindlier, gentler ziofascist hand” running their countries (to misquote a line from a Neil Young tune).

  16. hayate said on February 10th, 2011 at 12:04pm #

    Also, these recent revolts are not the only ones, but they are getting more coverage in the zionist media. What is happening in Tunisia and Egypt is much like what happened in Kyrgyzstan and Moldovia last year (and several others recently). None of these revolts have brought people power to the fore and appear to be leadership adjustments (though not necessarily completely in favour of israeloamerica). The Serb “color revolution” brought a similar result. Tunisia is looking to be another in this fashion. Egypt is still too early to see how things will go.

    “Omar Suleiman is the choice of Israel obviously you know of the long history between Netanyahu and his government and the proceeding government and Suleiman is a bad choice, but it shows you where the power of politics lie in this. That is why the Americans and Israelis want him,” Professor Franklin Lamb (American University of Beirut) told Press TV on Friday.

    The new military strongman, Gen. Omar Suleiman 74, has asked the country’s prime minister Ahmad Shafiq to appoint a deputy prime minister from the unelected ‘Wise Men Committee’. The so-called ‘Wise Men’ – appointed themselves, early this month, as the representatives of the anti-Mubarak protesters to conduct dialogue with the ruling military-civilian establishment.

    The group includes the secular individuals who had supported Hosni Mubarak’s policies in the past or made billions of dollars under his 30-year reign of terror. The group includes prominent figures like Amr Moussa, secretary general of the Arab league who has mentioned his desire to be a cabinet minister in the new administration, Professor Ahmad Zwail, laureate of Nobel Prize in physics, Coptic billionaire Naguib Saweris, Ahmed Kamal Aboul Magd, a lawyer and Amr Hamzawy, a political analyst among others. The last two have already asked Omar Suleiman to assume Mubarak’s post and powers, as President of Egypt.

    Contrary to the praise of the ‘Wise Men’ by the Jewish-controlled western mainstream media – Spokesperson of the April 6 Youth Movement, Mohamed Adel, said the ‘Wise Men Committee’ does not represent the movement nor the people demonstrating in Tahrir Square in any way.

    “We don’t know anything about the ‘Wise Men’ and the resolutions and statements they’re making,” Adel said.

    Former director-general of the nuclear watchdog (IAEA) Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei, is not among the ‘Wise Men’. Though a secularist nationalist – is not considered a ‘friendly Muslim’ by the ZionisMafia. Five opposition movements – including the Muslim Brotherhood – have mandated ElBaradei to negotiate the formation of a transitional “national salvation government”.

    “The mass protests in Egypt is not an Islamic revolution, like Iran in 1979. It’s the economy, stupid. Islam in Egypt today is essentially split between two currents; non-politicized Salafism and the Muslim Brotherhood – decimated by decades of repression and torture, and ultimately also without an explicit political program apart from providing social services neglected by the state,” wrote Pepe Escobar in Rage, rage against counter-revolution, Asia Times, February 1, 2011.

    Egyptians have freed themselves from one Zionist puppet (Hosni Mubarak), but Egypt is not free as yet. The old pro-Israel regime and its apparatus are still very much in place and waiting for the protesters’ energy to die.

    Mary:
    I totally agree with you that Hillary ROTTEN Clinton is an evil. She as a Zionist liar trying to construct a ‘protest’ with her NED agents inside Iran to threaten Iranian population for the benefit of Israel, to protect Zionist interest, not American people interest. American’s interest demands to abandon the current foreign policy in the region, including the North Africa, which is based on Israel expansionist policy interest, and instead taking measures to improve US-Iran relations and to bring down an apartheid state where is erected on stolen land of Palestine to assist Palestinian people who are under brutal occupation funded by the US imperialism and is secured and continued by Israel enablers like Clinton and Obama. But, she lies in order to secure her petty job at the state department the expense of American people’s interest.

    Please watch the following video to see how many people were ‘protesting’ in Tehran. These ‘protesters’, probably were MEK terrorists who carried CIA/Mossad assassination project against Iranian scientists, to help stupid Israel firsters in the congress to promote their project, removing MEK’s name from state department TERRORIST LIST.
    I am sure Hillary Rotten Clinton agrees with ANYTHING that helps the ‘Jewish state’.
