"The cooptation of the leaders of major opposition parties and civil society organizations in anticipation of the collapse of an authoritarian puppet government is part of Washington's design, applied in different regions of the World.
The process of cooptation is implemented and financed by US based foundations including the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and Freedom House (FH). Both FH and the NED have links to the US Congress. the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and the US business establishment. Both the NED and FH are known to have ties to the CIA."
Concluding, at the same time as the government officially supports the Mubarak's regime, certain institutions (that are undoubtedly linked to the government) such as NED, or FH, are supporting the opposition. All of this, to ensure that, no matter what happens in Egypt, there is one thing that cannot be put in danger: The imperial machine of the USA; the influence of the USA's politics and economics.
That's the vindication Egyptian people still need to do, in favour of their own sovereignty.
Actual decisions are taken in Washington DC, at the US State Department, at the Pentagon, at Langley, headquarters of the CIA. at H Street NW, the headquarters of the World Bank and the IMF.
The relationship of "the dictator" to foreign interests must be addressed. Unseat the political puppets but do not forget to target the "real dictators".
The protest movement should focus on the real seat of political authority; it should target (in a peaceful, orderly and nonviolent fashion) the US embassy, the delegation of the European Union, the national missions of the IMF and the World Bank.
Meaningful political change can only be ensured if the neoliberal economic policy agenda is thrown out.
I hear, now and then, people saying stuff like: "What's this international solidarity for? To promote the fundamentalists who will take over the Egyptian government? No thanks. "
I don't agree. It's always very uncertain, the directions a country will follow after a popular revolution - but the one thing everyone of us should not forget is the legitimacy of the Egyptian people to rebel, to revolt, against the injustices.
