Tyler Durden's picture





 

Since this will be a critical night for Egypt, as many of the protesters are now on the move, are expected to besiege both the TV station and the Presidential palace, as well as the amry HQ in Alexandria and other cities, it make be prudent to keep an eye on events as they progress. Select keywords to watch out for are: "oil", "Suez", "rocket-propelled grenades", "escalation" and "onslaught."

As usual, the best live feed comes from Al Jazeera...

...and the BBC

Why the US kept aircraft carrier Enterprise in southeastern Mediterranean and Kearsage warship/rescue ship en route.  Suez passage to be assured.  But I don't think those two ships and soldiers alone can ensure that.

Let's get real here. As much as we would like to see Mubarak and his cronies be hung from a lamp post the people are only armed with sticks and stones. Are they gonna storm the castle with that? No freakin' way, especially against the American-supplied M-16s in the hands of the military.

 

I don't feel sorry for the starving people and those who have been plundered over there. They willfully gave away their rights and brought this situation upon themselves. I think it was George Washington who said that those who give up freedom for fleeting security deserve neither. Nuff said.

Nope. The difference is that I have never given away my freedom without a fight. Those people delude themselves in thinking that peaceful revolutions work: think of them as middle-eastern hippies. Hippies, tree huggers, communists and left-wingers in general have no respect for gun rights and property rights. Such people deserve no respect. I hate Mubarak as much as I dislike the average person on Tahrir square.

Yeah, you're right.  I remember that decades-long civil war in the Phillipines to get rid of the Marcoses.  Who can forget the heroic General Gandhi leading his volunteer armies of Indians against the better-armed British occupiers?  And, of course, ongoing bloody revolution still engulfs Eastern Europe from East Germany to the Ukraine as the peasants fight their Soviet overlords.

In the case of the Phillipines and India, it was more a transfer of power than a revolution. In the Phillipines, Marcos conceded the election to Aquino and left (with a load of cash). The rest of the government remained pretty much intact. Perhaps a few Marcos cronies were also removed. In India, the British installed Nehru and other independence leaders in top offices while the lower levels of government continued to function as before.

It helped that Aquino, Gandhi and Nehru were reasonable people, not fanatics or power-crazed meglomaniacs. Even so, it is estimated that around a million Indians died during the partition. And Gandhi himself was ultimately assassinated by a fanatic.

A revolution where the government collapses is much more dangerous. You get a situation where no one is able to maintain order, and often the most ruthless group wins. For example in France, everyone hated King Louis. So they threw him out, issued the "Declaration of the Rights of Man" proclaimed a republic. And shortly afterwards the same bunch of people who had piously proclaimed the rights of man turned on their some of their more moderate members and initiated the period known as the "Reign of Terror" where so many people were guillotined. Of the victims, 8 percent were aristocrats, 6 percent were clergy, 14 percent were middle class and 72 percent were workers or peasants. This was later followed by the War in the Vendee where the new republic suppressed a peasant revolt against forced conscription. It has been called a genocide and is estimated that from 117,000 to 450,000 people were killed out of a population of around 800,000.

It is said that you should be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it. Although we all might like to see Mubarak removed, I think that it would be much better if this were to happen in an orderly fashion. If the Egyptian government collapses, there may be a free-for-all and the ultimate winner may be someone much worse than Mubarak.

This story makes it sound as all the events happened in a fish bowl.

They did not.

Hatred toward the French King Louis XVI? Nope. After the start of the revolution and  before the beginning of the reign of terror, most French supported the King. Republican revolutionaries were a minority. The republic form of government had no credibility and was commonly thought to be only possible for small entities like cities. Most republics in those times were cities.

People wanted a reformation of the royal power apparatus and to carry out the changes the previous King Louis XV failed to implement. 

Foreign actors intervened and they intervened in a way that influenced all the mentioned events.It was not "And shortly afterwards" as nothing happened between to favour the change in balance.

What changed the deal? The French King getting convicted by his royal family that fleeing from France and rallying a foreign army to regain France was the ideal solution.

He failed to flee. The event was reported and turned the King into a traitor as he was ready to march foreign armies on his own country. 

 The reign of terror was installed after a state of emergency. The state of emergency was declared following the march of German forces onto the newly proclaimed enemy France in order to restore royalty and King Louis.

The meddling of foreign powers greatly participated to the installation of the reign of terror as it put France in a besieged state. It is the legacy of the roman empire that during war, the normal republican governance is suspended and an exceptional power is conceded (the dictature)

Back to the egyptian events, just as the French revolution did not happen in France fish bowl, their movement is not happenning in the egyptian fish bowl. Considering what happened, it is clear that as long as foreign forces are not be satisfied with the outcome of the egyptian domestic affairs, they will keep meedling into it to favour their interests.  This constant meddling is in many cases a cause of radicalization and has the effect of lengthening the change process, as exhaustion happens slowlier considered the efficiency of the foreign support.

I posted a few days ago that negatives don't work as a plan as it defines a transition and not a state. They want a transition, so they will (maybe) operate the transition but have no idea what will be the new state, the new master. I hope they are lucky in the end, but their options aren't good. The fact that the media refuses to comment on possible/likely negative outcomes speaks volume. I know, "negative" depends on which side side you are on... it gets even louder.

Agreed – lots of idyllic pomp, but any chance of a non-pro-American regime taking the current ones place is slim and none.

I applaud the effort though as I think it’s the lit fuse on a global powder keg that is far too long un-lit.

Will the west not try to keep a lid on Egypt? Of course it will. But can it maintain the order in Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Jordon, etc… all at the same time? Me thinks not.

You know, when you spend 4 years with a woman, you get to meet her family.

You should try it sometime.

Ok. So this person was a "woman", not a "girl". Which means that she was over 35 and you thought that she was the one. Last time I talked to an eastern European girl she called campus security and a "sexual harassment" report was filed.

"Quid pro quo Clarice" indeed. lol

That's what you do when you:

1) have a huge Rolex collection

2) are 21

3) have been bestowed with unshakable confidence by God

 

With my current girlfriend I was able to skip all the interim steps. She wil not bear my children though.

If you use a "huge rolex collection" in order to pick up, then most likely, the women you will pick up are whores.

When you have such a nice collection, no girl is more important than what is on your wrist. It helps you put things in perspective. If you can't take the bluntness...

He's having some sanity issues right now.

From now 2-11-2011 until 10-28-2011 is a 260 day period of chaotic change. This period will be chaotic because the vast majority (98%)  do not have a clue as to why this is happening and that being the case this time we enter will tend to generate "negative" manifestations.  The crazier people become the more chaotic  the events will become. This period is NOT being caused by the normal drivers of human events ...  the movement of planets around the sun..   the cycles that people are used to  as "normal" come from that..  What we have at hand now can be considered a galactic (fractal sacred math) influence and is NOT connected directly to astronomical alignment.

You're going to see a lot of crazy over most of this year. Better get used to it. People will be shaken awake or die crazy. Either way illusion is getting wiped the fuck out.

I used to watch "Question Time" on BBC.

Then, little after little, I realized they usually had a Labour hard hitter paired with a demure Tory. And the location would be a hardcore Labour area. The audience full of die hard Labour supporters. Special guest a closet Labour supporter. The questions all aimed at the Tories. Dimbleby would cut off Labour questions quickly, and let Tory ones go on forever.

BBC News ought to be cut from the license fee. If Labourites want their own news channel, why should I have to pay for it?
