After so many of their puppet dictators being deserted by US patronage, "would be" dictators are reluctant to sign up with the States. Take Hosni Mubarak for example
he's going to get a new trial. Actually the bullets fired into the demonstrators were not Government issue,so how could he be guilty of killing them.?
And if it wasn't Secret Service, or Army who was it, not the brotherhood they were not interested at that stage. Trouble Makers wanting to open opportunity for something to happen enabling change. Why was change so necessary, because demographically and economically the situation WAS (is) UNTENABLE.
THE SHOOTERS WERE PAID ASSASSINS.
PAID BY BRITAIN Britain and FRANCE France.
Good points!

Clueless as usual Rtloder
In Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen they rallied in there squares,marched to depose of there despots.
In Eastern Europe, South/Central America the dictators fell etc.
Been going on for a long time.

Avenger I would rather listen to the crackle of my burning beard, than to hear anything you may have to say. However consider this, in Tunisia, Egypt, and Yemen they protested and it would have amounted to nothing. Their dictators Ben Ali, Mubarak and Saleh, were installed by Washington and replaced by Washington.
Gadaffi was replaced by one year of bombing then Tripoli was taken by Special Forces with their insignia removed. In Bahrain the Saudi simply said to Arab Spring enthusiasts, go and get lost. In East Europe the supposing revolutions of Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan and Belarus went nowhere, their leaders are all in prison, good job too.
This is Western subterfuge, divide and rule, burn and pillage, create sedition then abuse the infants, split up the parents to
colonise their home, offer pretended expectation create hate then steal.

In South America it's even worse or it was,
UN said yesterday Washington's role in Congo DR. can no longer be
ignored. The West is evil.

OK, Avenger maybe I shouldn't be so vain with respect to my beard, but it's hardly my fault that you can't grow one because your stupid wife won't let you. Today was the hottest day Sydney has ever had, in spite of there being a downturn in Solar fissionable fusion creating confusion for many of us living on Earth, but I an not confused in the slightest. Climate change is here to stay, and what are we doing about it absolutely nothing, and what is the reason why.?
Who is at fault, do I blame the West, because they are reactionary.?
The West certainly caused it, we could have had, planning and population control, but do I hate them because they destroyed our habitat.?
NO I DO NOT for I am Salafi and it is
harum to judge.;

No, Reality has a theme, based on facts. You only have insults. And if you say something, it is your attitude, not the fact. And then you want to pretend that facts, someone brings up, are also an attitude. It looks that you live in the illusionary world, and you have no idea that factual world exists.

Maybe one should define the West? are we talking of the people of the Western World (as compared to third world) or the criminals who are running the countries of the Western world. All wars of the 20th Century involved three countries: France, England and the US. Most of them were imperialstic and all of them were about grabbing assets or markets. Nothing has changed. Stealing is the purpose of empires. Any wonder why the victims all over the world are not too enthusiastic about their oppressor. One can argue that the "West" brought "civilisation" on the Third World, however at any one time, civilisation was the patrimony of the Third World, while Europe was made of cave men with a big club. I am sure nobody hates the West per se, however a sense of justice make us admit that what the so-called West, represented by the Wall Street and London banksters and their military
henchmen , are doing is not Justice at all. But the joke in on the West after all as the empire is now invading the home countries. The idiotic colonialists beeing colonised...What a joke! And the legions of the West made of Third World soldiers... When Rome collapsed 90% of the graves in the capital were those of foreigners...
