Yes, Zionist puppet and an asset to the USA government. In other words it is like TARP, screw the population of the country and do as is best for the owners/puppet-masters.

Face the facts, the USA/Israel has a long history of propping up such men to lead other countries. These new leaders do the bidding of others and care little for the country's citizens.

I saw this post at another site, and wish to sternly warn anyone and everyone against such a post:

OK, now a lot of people have been wondering how Egypt managed to isolate itself on the Web. There are principally two ways this is done, first physically forcing the individual ISPs (ASN level) to halt all in and out-going IP traffic, but the second way is probably how they accomplished it. Let this be a warning to all who try.

They would have had the site which is their top-domain registry, or .eg registry, perform editing of their country's web sites by removing the terminating "." to DNS records in the .eg zone.

(That is, deleting the "." following the lower level sites, indicating no ".eg" was to follow.)

As an example, were one to evilly hack into Sweden's .se country registry (www.iis.se), and remove the terminating "." after the main ASN sites, no IP traffic would be incoming or outgoing for that country.

As an example, were one to evilly hack into the United Kingdom's .uk country registry (www.nominet.org.uk), and remove the terminating "." after the main ASN sites, no IP traffic would be incoming or outgoing for that country.

As an example, were one to evilly hack into Switzerland's .ch country registry (www.switch.ch/all), and remove the terminating "." after the main ASN sites, no IP traffic would be incoming or outgoing for that country.

Now, this is assuredly against the law, so be warned not do undertake any such operation --- even if the global banking elite manages to have Assange of Wikileaks illegally extradited to Sweden to be later removed to some extreme rendition site.

I hope we are clear on this?

Fascinating. These protests are exposing the dictators and the deep level of corruption in the middle east and widespread discontent with the state of the economy and personal freedoms.  It is highly possible that this could be a catalyst to expose the European Ponzi scheme as well as protests against the austerity programs gain momentum.

We can only hope. It's time the ponzinomics comes to an end. The Irish/Greek/Spanish/ are being raped for the sake of the Germans. The whole EU revolves around Germany.

CNBC reports peaceful protests as the NDP is burning at this very moment. You literally could not write this and have someone believe you. Humans have throughout history proven that they will not be ruled by a self appointed elite be it a monarchy, political class or financial cartel monarch without it inevitably ending in revolt.

There’s nothing less at stake on the streets of Cairo than the future of world government, spearheaded by a financial oligarchy that rules over developing countries, stealing their resources, rewarding their dictators, and paying for the dictators’ military might with the taxes and inflation imposed upon the middle class of America.

Watching the events in Cairo one can never forget the substantial contributor to this event: Israel. Israel and its patron, America.  Perhaps no other statement covers the relationship like yesterday’s comment from Vice President Joe Biden :

“Mubarak has been an ally of ours in a number of things. And he’s been very responsible on, relative to geopolitical interest in the region, the Middle East peace efforts; the actions Egypt has taken relative to normalizing relationship with – with Israel.”

Here’s Biden in March 2010, speaking at Tel Aviv University:: "Throughout my career, Israel has not only remained close to my heart but it has been the center of my work as a United States Senator and now as Vice President of the United States,"  And, he reminded listeners of his past words in a speech in the U.S.: “ I said were I a Jew, I would be a Zionist… you need not be a Jew to be a Zionist.” http://www.counterpunch.org/shaaban03162010.html

And here on the subject yesterday is State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley:

“We respect what Egypt contributes to the region, it is a stabilizing force, it has made its own peace with Israel, and is pursuing normal relations with Israel, we think that's important, we think that's a model that the region should adopt broadly speaking.

"Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called on the Egyptian government to exercise restraint in dealing with protests and to respect citizens' human rights. She also cautioned demonstrators to refrain from violence."

That's nice, but who is she communicating this to?  No one in Egypt since their communications are cut off.  I guess that's our (US) way of pretending we're trying to mediate.
