Egyptian People Win Their Freedom. US Loses Influence in Near and Far East

Posted on February 11, 2011

Egypt, long the master over others in centuries past is itself now free.  President Hosni Mubarak has resigned.  A female reporter on the scene and an Egyptian told al Jazeera that for all the worry that there were only two forms of government in the Middle East – dictator or Islamic Republic – the Egyptian people have demonstrated democracy is a third option.

A visit to the al Jazeera Arabic website found that a photo similar to this figured prominently in among streaming video of  the celebration in the streets of Cairo:

Saudi King and President Obama

The Dithering and damnable President of the United States has again backed the wrong horse and has run the race far from the pack.  He didn’t get it.  He was intractable.  He wanted Mubarak to step down but was not strong enough to handle the Saudis who worked to keep Mubarak.  Obama turned out to be the Saudi King’s “poodle.”   At this hour we can expect that Jordan’s royal family will be next and the big enchilada, the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia will be next after that.  These are not fires that can easily be put out.

And the US cannot rest easily with Suleiman as the new President of Egypt because many have always seen him as a CIA Operative.  See Article here.

China, Brazil, Russia and Iran all have been active in the region and they stand to capture the benefits of good relationships with the people there.  China never mentioned the uprising on its network but Ishtar Tass, the Russian news portal covered it in depth.

This is the saddest thing to have happened on SamHenry’s watch.  Happy for the Egyptian people, I am devastated at our performance and outcome.  We will not soon regain our stature in the world.
