I am amazed at the turn of events over the past month. I didn't make much of the guy who torched himself last December in Tunis, but now that I have been following these events since then, I am convinced that we have seen the first internet coup d'etat ever. And it is possible that Egypt will be number two. The implications are many:

 

1. Mubarak is the chief American/Western proponent in the Arab world for all things political (King Fahd of Saudi Arabia is the economic/oil version). If Mubarak goes via revolt, this will demonstrate the fickleness of American support and will drive other Arab leaders away from the American camp ................ at lightning speed.

2. Egypt secures the Western border of Gaza. Israel will not be able to stop traffic there should Mubarak fall. This will trigger a massive flux of movement instantly on that side and may cause a great military retaliation by Israel. This will only further inflame the Arab/Muslim world and will increase tension immediately in Lebanon and Syria. All bets are off is Mubarak falls.

 

3. Whenever there is tension/uncertainty in that part of the world, oil prices rise. If Mubarak falls, watch for immediate escalation of price and perhaps a slowdown in production. The world economy is very anemic right now because US banksters (and British/Swiss as well) have looted trillions of dollars from the people. A massive rise in oil prices may bring many nations to the brink of an Iceland-style collapse. This is not good. Ireland is already on the precipice and Spain is not far behind.

4. The strain on any US response will be nearly unbearable. The military is past the breaking point and can't move from Iraq/Afghanistan. Money will have no effect in this situation. Israel cannot possible respond to anything more than the West Bank or Gaza. There is no Western response available.

 

5. If these protests translate into massive revolt in Saudi Arabia, there might be no stopping the downfall of the Saud family and a collapse of their government. This means no more oil. The world will collapse economically.

 

Events are happening fast and there is no telling what direction the protests will take next, but we have evidence that the CIA/Mossad group have been trying to oust Mubarak for quite some time now. Several articles cite Wikileaks as a source for this conclusion, a proposal WebsterTarpley gave recently on Russia Today.

It seems that the intelligentsia of the US and Israel have bitten off a bit more than they can chew. While they've been acting beneath the surface for years to undermine Egypt's government, they surely didn't expect the catalyst to come from nearby Tunisia. Yet, our new millennium has given other examples of how modern technology can be used by the masses in new and inspiring ways.
