Egypt: What's Coming

Considering this jittery position of the powers that be,

(they provide their friends with these,)

and the jittery position of him,

i think our "allies" will put in place this guy

ElBaradei at airport says the point of no return has been reached must be peaceful change govt must stop using violence #Jan25 #Egypt
8:12pm January 27

whom "the people"

didn't elect.

This is maybe a tip toe better than what we have lived under for the past 30 years... but it is a continuation of Egypt's neo-liberal "reforms" a la mr. fayyad

... just a guess

and i dont like it.

Around here we need to start thinking about alternatives to the nation-state, because after all the "post-colonial moment is still colonial"

America gives to Egypt:
"20 million for democracy and governance programs vs 1.3 billion for security/ police/ military ... democracy destabilizing to the region"
