You really think Chinese support and a "new chinese world order" has anything to do with this spiral eyes? Mubarak not going anywhere and basicall saying "fuck off everyone i dont care what you think" has Isreal written all over it. That's who owns mubarak, always has been and while the egyptian people have the most to gain from his departure the zionists have the most to lose. They will not let him leave with out the typical zionist bloodbath of the innocents. Why do you think Isreal have been stocking up the egyptian army with US weapons for the past 2 weeks?

of course he has israeli support. i doubt he will remain longer than eight or ten months, but he will keep clinging on for now. israel has for the last 62 years been -- for all intents and purposes -- an american contingency. but in the last two years israel has started defying america a lot more -- just as american power has begun to wane. hillary and obama keep saying "stop building settlements" and "stay out of east jerusalem", and the israelis ignore them. israel has cultivated links with the emergent powers -- powers who are predisposed against democracy. israel likes to talk about being a democracy, but if there was a knesset election involving everyone living on the land of israel there would be an arab majority. israel would no longer be israel. israel cannot go it alone; they have relied on american pre-eminence, and they are now trying to lean against other authoritarian regimes. so will the new superpower allow israel to stand against 400 million arabs who want to destroy it?

 

there aren't too many fundamentalist presbyterian christians in china -- and "bringing jesus back" was always the conditionality for american support. the rothschilds have a few tentacles in china and hong kong, but china won't prop them up forever, and nobody (especially not china) will sanction a nuclear war, which would be their only hope for survival.

 

israel is, in the long run, caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.

What if after the revolution Egypt becomes a much more peaceful place as I predict?

The one thing Israel absolutely doesn't want is a peaceful Egypt because they will have nothing to exploit.

It's somewhat like with Jared Lee Laughner, the Arizona shooter. The media had no one else to exploit but the shooter. It made them crazy.

5 million jews can't out-vote 400 million arabs. they can't outshoot them either. all they have going for them is 300 nukes, dwindling american hegemony and their ingenuity. the first two factors are very fragile. 400 million arabs (with a rising birth rate and a growing democratic national consciousness) is what nassim taleb would call anti-fragile. so that leaves ingenuity. but is the israeli ingenuity really so great? it's hard to be ingenious when a tsunami is crashing down on your head.

I'm sorry Michael.  We are never going to be free of the misnamed Patriot Act.  Rather, they are going to build upon it and add to it until it is an edifice that wraps us all in the crushing embrace of a security web from which there will be no escape.  That is how these things work.  The powerful never voluntarily reduce their power.  The instinct is to add to it. The Patriot act is our legacy from the Bush administration and it is going to be caressing us forever no matter how many times we call our congress critters.

I would like to thank all participants on this most prestigious Zero Hedge blog for helping me plant the seeds of destruction of the globalist banking cartel new world order. There are many of you whose goal is to help establish a one world government. Most here are more interested in retaining our national sovereignty where we have a say in who runs the show. Not so with a global banking system that represents global governance.

I thank the Lib Cretins who troll here keeping us on our toes, keeping us entertained, and our minds active. You have helped us achieve maximum clarity of thought without which I could not have accomplished my goals. I have never and will never junk any of your comments. I need you too much.

My active quest to bring down the movement toward a NWO began with the Ron Paul movement where I was a group organizer for two towns in my neighborhood. Since then we planted the seeds that brought about the modern Tea Party movement. We have made major in-roads with our government and have drastically changed the way business is done in Washington. The old guard there is changing rapidly and will soon completely fall to our dreams. Patience is a virtue.

We defeated the eco-fascists goal of a global carbon tax, one of the cornerstones of the control mechanism of the NWO. Not much more needs to be done in that area. The Chicago carbon exchange has already fallen. We planted the thought seeds of financial collapse all over Europe and have spurred the collapse of tyrannical regimes all over the middle East. We can now see the light at the end of the tunnel and victory will soon be ours.

All this we have accomplished in a short two years. I could probably add to this list, but will leave it here for now. Keep up the good work and again, thank you and thanks Tyler Durden.

Israel has 300+ nukes. No one is going to invade Israel unless they want a couple dozen nukes shoved up their ass.

What they should be talking about is the plight of the Palestinian people at the hand of Israel. The US people should rise up in support of the Palestinian people for their freedom.

You don't understand the dynamics at play.

Apartheid Israel doesn't ever have to worry about being invaded.  But that's not what matters.  Their entire reason for existing is to be a strategic military asset.  Their job is to kill grandmothers and orphans while stealing land.

Has been since the UN invented it back in 1947.

A revolutionary government on their doorstep, along with Hizbullah, Hamas, and the Sadrists to go along with Iran, means that they have no friends nearby.

Jordanians have set up an encampment of their own outside their Egyptian embassy.  If they lose Jordan and Egypt as allies, reflect for a minute on Apartheid Israel's existence, not to mention its worth as a strategic asset.

I agree with you and would add that the comment is a complete non-sequitor.  It's not relevant to the conversation or the topic at hand, it's simply a political swipe.  Unfortunately it's completely indicative of the direction posting in general has gone on ZH as it's gained popularity.  The problem with the fact that anyone can post on the internet is, well, anyone can post on the internet.  I used to really enjoy reading the comments on this site because they were generally thoughtful, interesting, and relevant (and occassionally provacative).  Now, it gets closer to the forums on Yahoo every day where everything is a political issue.

You are spot on about the political thing; it's kind of a bummer that so many people don't get it.

The internet is useful to the PTB outside of the economic benefits.  It is the ultimate surveillance tool.  Not necessarily in the specific sense of monitoring an individual, like the good colonel is getting at, it is perhaps more useful in building aggregates.  Google trends type analysis, but with all the missing data points that  google trends doesn't provide.

Check out the Red Balloon story.  https://networkchallenge.darpa.mil/Default.aspx

So, I agree that the internet will not be shutdown for any extended period, but it could be shut down for short time frames to throw some chaos into the citizen opposition.  Like they just did in Egypt.  Maybe they would have been marching on the palace last week without the added confusion.

Of course, it's useful in tracking details of individuals of interest, but there's a lot of people in the world.  The more that are unafraid to speak their minds, the more difficult to monitor any one.

They weren't meant to. This whole Egyptian movement has become a classic case of lambs to the asswhack (pray it's not slaughter).

Violent revolutions never end well for the revolutionaries. It's a manufactured opposition fighting against an entreched foe who created them in the first place.

Predictable and sad.

The fact that this is all happening in a "cradle" of civilization as we know it makes th eimpact tenfold.

What are you going to be asking for when The Muslim Brotherhood has control of Egypt within 1 year? They only killed Sadat and have been trying to takeover Egypt since 1960. Their stated goals are the destruction of Israel, "The Project" - which is to takeover Europe and they are well on their way, and the destruction of the United States followed by a world-wide caliphate.When you hope this revolution succeeds you help start a big inferno.

You need to learn the players for World War III that is coming as the major opponent is going to be Islam. Sure, I wouldn't care to live next to Mubarak. But anyone who thinks democracy is coming to Egypt now is dumb as a box of rocks. Seen any democracy in Iraq? They don't know who John Locke or Adam Smith and their ilk are. They know war, and that's it. Now Obobo has managed to stir up a hornet's nest. Was he:

A- an idiot?

B - his middle name Hussein really does mean something?

This is what you got to do Socrates. 

You need to dress in ashes and sack cloth, then get out in the street, wail and gnash your teeth, while running from one end to the other screaming - "Arrrgh! The Mooslems are coming!! The Mooslems are coming!!"  Try pulling your hair out while preforming same, may further add to your delivery. 

Also, remember to check under your bed and in the closet before going to bed, because sometimes they hide there.  Don't forget your night light.

Good luck.

/sarc

What a lunatic. 

Maybe the Muslim Brotherhood has had a beef with Israel since the 60's, because of this small example of the types of things the Zionists get up to in Egypt.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavon_Affair

Jews were recruited by Israeli military intelligence for plans to plant bombs inside Egyptian, American and British-owned targets. The attacks were to be blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood, ...

Yeah, nice neighbors.

Note to Egyptians: You have to start killing these government officials, it's the only way to get rid of them. Kill the families too. Start with a few lower level guys, then the army will fall in line and they will take care of the higher ups. Very important- you must get the families too, or else they will just run off with all the money. And for Christ's sake, get a leader. Before the revolution, you need to coup.

These are the words of a fascist.

The REVOLUTION is forcing the issue - strikes galore, protests everywhere, provincial regions going crazy.

The government cannot control it.  They're desperate and looking a provocation.

A provocation which they have almost no means to retaliate against.

The army has pretty clearly demonstrated their allegiance to the people of Egypt, it's citizens and not its government. This leaves the government very little ability to do actually do anything in response to a full on violent revolution and, indeed, makes it very risky for them to do so as this could easily lead the army to come to the peoples' aid in an outright coup.

I'll be very interested to see how it plays out if things get violent (or more so than they already have).

I'm seeing very little evidence that the military has turned against (Mu)Barak.  Too many stories of the military shooting guys with laser sites and grabbing people up off the streets.

They created the cordon sanitaire last Wednesday when (Mu)Barak's little hooligan brigade bum-rushed Tahrir Square.  When it backfired, they worked hand-in-glove with the firebombers, allowing cars and trucks to re-arm them over and over and over again while they bombed the Museum.

They'll have a chance to prove themselves very soon.  And we may have a massacre.  The palace guard is different than the military.

Luckily, it sounds that the couple hundred people heading to Heliopolis have decided to encamp in strategic locations.  That's a really good move, in anticipation for tomorrow.

But as to the military:  I think, to a lot of the gunners - a whole lot - it's all about the fucking benjamins.  Enough willingness to kill can crush a revolution in utero.

The more strikes, the better.  The whole fucking country needs to be on strike and in the streets.

And no matter what happens, the fucking COWARD Muslim Brotherhood will have had NOTHING to do with ANY of what's happening (except collaboration with Suleiman).

They're just sitting there, thumbs in asses.
