In the early days of the Egyptian uprising, activists from all over the world sat on the edge of their seats, wanting to believe that the angry men and women that they saw on their TV and laptop screens were not simply unwitting players in the globalists' real life game of Risk -- where manipulation, espionage, and sophisticated propaganda take the place of dice rolls in the battle for territorial control -- but rather organically grown freedom fighters who had had enough of what they were getting.

Caught up in the hope that it could be the first domino to fall in the successful battle against global tyranny, much of the world demanded that President Mubarak step down, many looking to 1776 as the inevitable outcome of the revolution, overlooking the long list of other revolutions in history that have led to even worse regimes taking power than the ones that were deposed. 

After the leadership of Saudi Arabia -- another country where uprisings are now taking place -- told President Obama that they would financially support Mubarak if the U.S. withdrew its own, Mubarak defiantly refused to step down, claiming that he "cannot and will not accept to be dictated orders from outside."

However, Mubarak suddenly and inexplicably had a change of heart. Shortly after his infamous speech, he relinquished power to his freshly appointed VP -- Omar Suleiman, the former head of intelligence who sanctioned the use of torture on his own citizens, and who, when interviewed, blamed the uprising on "foreign operatives with their own agendas whose objective was to create instability, intimidation and rift between Egyptians."

People cheered. Pundits on TV once again praised "democracy" as if the word equated to liberty. Bloggers squealed with glee at the exercise of "people power" against the U.S. puppet regime. Yet, in the days that followed the supposed victory of the Egyptian people, the military took total control, the parliament was dissolved, and the constitution was suspended.  

Now, other uprisings are happening throughout the Middle East, including in Iran, whose government the United States has been trying for years to overthrow, even supporting known terrorist groups in order to do so. In the aftermath of the Egyptian Revolution the U.S. has quietly sent warships to the Suez Canal (after having sent 11 warships back in June in response to a Gaza bound Iranian aid flotilla). Israel has screamed about Iran doing the same, with war hawks in Israel and the U.S. claiming it to be an aggressive move on Iran's part rather than a strategic act of national security in the face of a series of world events that -- it's becoming more clear -- aren't all they're cracked up to be.

While the uprising in Egypt flared, the Telegraph published a document from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo that revealed the U.S. was secretly backing the protests. As the U.S. government and military prepared an Internet kill switch for its citizens to protect them from free speech and exaggerated cyber threats, they righteously demanded that Mubarak keep Egypt's Internet going so that freedom could ring through the Tweets of his people. During this time, the fake conservative media fear-mongered over a possible power vacuum in Egypt and threats to the Egypt's peace treaty with Israel if so-called fundamentalists like the Muslim Brotherhood started running the show there.      

Issues like rising commodity prices no doubt were the fuel burning the revolutionary spirits of the young people who took to the streets in Egypt, but was it Egyptians who ignited that fuel? As the dollar weakens, it doesn't take much economic savvy to realize that the prices of commodities will increase due to the dollar's reserve status, and that this will cause understandable social upheaval, first in poorer countries, and then inevitably in supposedly wealthy, (however bankrupt) ones. The narrative that the intelligence community never saw the current uprisings coming provides a convenient and over-simplified cover for allowing a situation that ordinary people predicted years in advance to happen, and like 9/11, seems to cloak a sophisticated web of geopolitics with a blanket of alleged incompetence to hide willful participation.     

Whether the protests in Egypt and now in other nations began organically and were hijacked by skilled intelligence operatives, or were started by Western intelligence agencies ahead of the projected fallout of the Fed's quantitative easing, they are now being used as an excuse for strongmen -- Western backed and otherwise -- to tighten the chains around the necks of their people. Also, it provides an excuse for the U.S. and Israel to justify a firmer footing in the region, including beating the same drum against Iran that they've been beating for years.     

The Islamic bogeyman is alive and well in the words of war-mongering propagandists, given fresh life by the chaos of rebellion. And while the revolutions abroad conveniently give neocons an excuse to talk about further expanding the U.S. military's reach overseas, they also provide an easy scapegoat, superficially explaining why commodities like food and oil will continue to become more expensive. Already, trouble in the Suez Canal is being cited as cause for why we'll have to pay more for gas. The fact that commodity prices were rising even before the uprisings occurred means very little in the dizzying world of political spin -- as long as it sounds good and people buy it. Ben Bernanke would have the public believe that the Fed's haphazard money printing and the dollar's reserve currency status has no effect on the current reality of commodity inflation, and that events like those in Egypt were the cause of higher prices rather than just another result -- assuming they weren't staged to begin with. 

The notion that the United States is behind the overthrow of the Egyptian government is a very real and very probable possibility. It is also not without precedent, since the United States has overthrown many foreign governments in the past. The Suez Canal is a strategic waterway, and choking off China and Russia, among other nations, from it would allow the globalists to poke an entire den of bears and incite the next great conflict -- the kind that we're taught in school allegedly got us out of the last Great Depression and led to the creation of the U.N.

What we're witnessing is the same problem-reaction-solution dynamic that we've witnessed throughout history. If Americans don't look at the deeper politics at work happening before them, and look past the latest mosaic of tyranny disguised as freedom in the form of sudden uprisings against governments that happen to be standing under the geographical archway of the New World Order, then they're going to find themselves caught in a situation like the Egyptians find themselves in. They will ultimately be hapless players in the final chapter of history's trilogy of global chaos and growing world government, unable to see reality for what it is until the smoke clears and their world has drastically changed around them.
