Arabian Fall Update: Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Morrocco, Tunisia, Sudan And Now Lebanon

Tyler Durden's picture

From the Arabian Spring of hope (although technically protesting soaring food prices, something which is about to happen all over again) to the Arabian Fall of anti-American revulsion in under two years: has to be a blowback record. The latest casualty: the German embassy in Sudan:

  • Protestors now inside German Embassy in Khartoum, Sudan - RTRS
  • Protesters pull down emblem at German embassy in Sudan, raise Islamic flag, Reuters witness says - RTRS
  • Protesters set KFC restaurant on fire in Lebanon over pope's visit, anti-Islam film -RTRS

So: Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Morrocco, Tunisia, Sudan and now Lebanon. Did we miss anyone?

Given the local hygiene customs in the middle east - it's the last place you'd want to see any finger lickin'.

"Did we miss anyone?"

Many thousands in Bahrain would love to protest, but their Saudi and American overlords do not allow such freedom.

Relax, this scene of foreign troops occupying your country could never happen where you live.

With a side of freedom fries and an order of supression soda... what do you mean you don't take dollars?

They are mad because they all live in a desert and there is no food.  If they moved to some place nice, say maybe closer to water and food they wouldn't be so angry.

If they keep it up, we will impose huge sanctions and not build the Buffalo Wild Wings we promised them.

there's only one more our glorious leaders can do for them at this point... turn their sand into glass...

How unexpected all of this. NOT. Either the US is incredibly naieve or it is all part of a bigger plan.

Who said anything about the CIA?  I certainly didn't.

lolmao500's picture

Ooo don't worry, soon enough it'll be blamed on Iran. They'll say it was all coordinated by Iran as payback for the sanctions.

In fact, Israeli writer Victor Kotsev has suggested in print it was Syria who sponsored the Prophet-smearing 'Innocent Muslims' rubbish crappy film, ha! ...

He suggests the Syrians might have done it, to help convince the West that regime change doesn't work ...

You've got a handle on the Mossad - CIA playbook

this whole thing is a Mossad provocation. Now the Jew movie producer all of the sudden  is a "Coptic Christian"- what a fucking joke

Only Nixon can go to China.....and only the Pope can go to Lebanon.


Good luck chief.

At least no such things in the democratic Ryad ... :-P Saudi democracy works .

Thanks to all the Western "free-press" propaganda whores who've been removing all and any information on the ongoing revolution in Bahrain!

bank guy in Brussels's picture

Next door to Bahrain - and with the same Sunni-Shia conflict - Saudi revolution brewing.

Jim Willie says the real big deal coming up is the Saudi regime going down ... at last ... and Petro-Dollar world blows up along with them

Anyone who thinks this is not an orchestrated "kristalnacht" event needs to pay a little closer attention to the man behind the curtain.      Something is driving the extremists to take risks and chances to get closer to their "goal" of having the world believing the same way that they do.     Sad thing is that a lot of moderates are going to miss the opportunity to smack down these nuts before they really get emboldened and start claiming "God is with US!"   (Oh wait, they already do.)

Up Arrow.

Soetoro is involved, or those who manipulate him. His support for the MB and now FBI warnings of CONUS attacks smell of manipulated "events."

What he needs now is a devastating "attack" on CONUS to move faster into more authoritariansism via a "national emergency."

yeah-beacause Yemen is fully capable of invading our Eastern Seaboard "D-Day Style" you idiot. you go die for some oil so some soccer mom bitch can fill up her SUV cheaply.

So, just in time for regional unrest that will drive gasoline prices even higher, the fed opens the open-ended floodgates to allow more money to slosh around the system looking for a home. This is awesome. Not only will we get the pop in oil from regional instability, but there's soon going to be even more free money to bid up price. Sweet! Or, is that light sweet crude?

LULZBank's picture

Its the regional instabilities, not the QEs driving the fuel and food prices up... duh.

tinsmith's picture

That's true. But my point was that while a variety of factors (including instability, drought, etc.) will raise prices for food and fuel, the fact that the fed has pledged to dump more 1's and 0's into the hands of those looking to make risk free (for them) bets means that on top of naturally occuring price spikes we will have to deal with ass hats bidding up what is already heading up to begin with. Like pouring gasoline on a fire.

Looks like Iran has found a few allies. I wonder if they know to go after banksters first. Or, does a bear shit in the woods.

Mark Wilson's picture

Ah yes. The perpetually outraged Islamists are at it again. Move along...

Syria is missing. 'Americans' have not yet managed to uproot the tyrant there and 'americans' can less stage these kind of demonstrations in order to build up on the idea of a credible external threat...

China is missing. 'Americans' have not yet managed to uproot the tyrant there and 'americans' can less stage these kind of demonstrations in order to build up on the idea of a credible external threat...

So far just a "bad back".

Syria must not be going to well for CIA- not too much about "awesome rebel victories" on MSM lately
