Arab Spring Pays Back in Dollars
Arabs Answer American Violence
New in the Website
A few years ago, I read an article claiming that the current century would also be an “American Century.” The statistics supporting this are amazing; since its foundation, the USA has fought over 500 wars (see American Led Apocalypse). The USA is beyond any doubt the most violent country in human history. This new and brave “American Century” began accordingly with two major wars, in Iraq and Afghanistan. On paper, both were American victories on the meek. Yet, on September 4, 2012, The New York Times, reported “Iran has resumed shipping military equipment to Syria over Iraqi airspace” (see Eastern Limit of Western Power). Iran’s capability of doing so was the direct result of the American attack on Iraq, which left the latter without an air force. Slowly, the American victory on Iraq is turning out to be something different. Of course, the American Administration would be the last organization on the planet to admit that.
In Afghanistan, Americans got luckier. They completed a survey that had been initiated in the 19th century by Russians and Britons during the Great Game, and discovered huge reserves of rare earth elements (for details see USA answers Europe Attempt to Secure Rare Earth Elements and Hidden Rare Earth Elements War Heats Up). American corporations and their puppet-regime in Kabul are planning their exploitation; accordingly, the USA is unlikely to leave Afghanistan until the ores are taken away. I have no doubt the USA would be utterly surprised to find that as soon as they begin robbing the ores from the Afghani people, a new guerrilla war will erupt. Soon afterwards, Americans will begin missing the Taliban regime.
The two first major wars of this century clearly show this century won’t be an American one. Both are widely considered illegitimate and have damaged America's position. The third war confirmed that.
The Third War
CNN in Spanish is unwatchable. It inherited the slightly propagandistic style of its English Big Brother. This is bearable in small doses. However, when combined with the weirdest anchors on earth the effect is grotesque. Why should an anchor shout? Why should another one triplicate every “r” he finds along the way? (Afterwards he stops for a second, to let the audience enjoy the effect). Yet, while in Bolivia this is my most direct access to American mainstream media. In the aftermath of the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, I watched the CNN. “Just this tiny item,” I promised myself, feeling slightly nauseous. It paid off immediately.
“They didn’t shoot the ambassador. He was safe. He suffocated to death.” This is the summary of the silly analysis offered by a Spanish-speaking American; during his speech, the anchor kept distracting the audience with unlikely antics. The American was trying to diminish the success of the attack. Bizarre on the verge of self-delusional, the CNN failed to mention that Benghazi had been the first conquest of the mercenaries that had ousted Kaddafi. Even the term “Arab Spring,” the formal name of the third major war of this century was barely mentioned. Make no mistake; this is a major war, despite its feeble results. Rulers were changed in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen. Egypt is the clearest failure. The revolution there led to the exchange of Mubarak—an American puppet—for President Mohamed Morsi, who is affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood. Mass protests took place in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, and Sudan; minor ones in Lebanon, Mauritania, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Djibouti, and Western Sahara. The instigators of the events were hit back almost immediately—in Egypt—and are about to be hit again in other locations.
There is no doubt that the “Arab Spring” is a string of carefully coordinated attacks by the Americans on the Arab World. It has been denounced so repeatedly by Russia and China, which provided plenty of proofs, including convincing testimony of made-up events and photographs by the American media. Not only does the Western media ignore these accusations, but it also misleads the public. In the specific case of Libya, it presented the revolution as a popular uprising against Kaddafi.
In February 2011, we were told by Western media that the Arab Spring had reached Libya. However, those paying attention to details, noticed something odd in the reports: the so called “popular protests” began by a group of mercenaries taking control of Benghazi, near the Egyptian border. They had entered Libya from Egypt. In May the rebels took the city of Misrata and things began looking bad for Muammar Kaddafi’s government. On, August 23, the rebels took control of Bab al-Aziziya, the government complex in Tripoli. Kaddafi escaped, but shortly after he was caught and assassinated. Instead of a popular rebellion, we watched the advance of an unknown infantry army backed up by the air force of Nato’s Terror Marshals. In the West, the rebels became known as the “National Transitional Council” and were recognized as Libya’s legal government for unclear reasons; after all they have not been elected by the people. Opposing the barbaric attacks of NATO on civilians were China, Russia and Venezuela.
The Third War is a strange one. Aware of being widely recognized as a systemic aggressor by the international community, the USA conducted its latest belligerent project from afar through carefully coordinated forces of mercenaries and NATO. Yet, people know the truth, no matter how much disinformation the CNN bombs us with in the aftermath of NATO bombings. The Arab World understand who is behind the attacks of the last two years.
Once upon a time, there was a Kingdom of Justice and Light. It didn’t offer justice, and the only light it offered was interrogation lamps. For a while it worked and its marshals comfortably conquered and robbed vast parts of the world. Eventually, people woke up. They understood that the American people are not free, and thus cannot possibly be exporting freedom. They understood that the American people are not democratic, and thus cannot possibly be exporting democracy. Regardless of the party controlling the White House, America has only one message: war and hatred for anything different. On September 11, 2012, a series of protests against American missions in Egypt and Libya began and expanded to much of the Arab World. The most violent manifestation was in Benghazi, Libya; it resulted in the death of the American ambassador who was visiting the city. The message was not very subtle: the attack of last year on Libya can be reversed, Benghazi was the city chosen by the Americans to begin what they called “popular resistance.” During the Third War, America found a strange reality. It got paid back not in spades but in dollars, using the same currency of violence it so cherishes.
