'Egyptians Aware of US Hijack Plan'

While the Egyptians are celebrating the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, many are concerned about US Israeli plans with senior Egyptian military personnel to steal and depress the revolution.

The formation of a civilian government, configuration of a body to draft the new constitution, lifting the state of emergency, releasing political prisoners, disbanding military courts, allowing freedom of media, dissolving the cabinet recently appointed by Mubarak, suspending the Parliament elected in 2010 and prosecuting those responsible for the deaths of hundreds of protesters are among other demands of the demonstrators.

spook,

I have a friend who has some knowledge of middle eastern affairs.

He says that Mubarak is old and hasn't been the force behind the government for some time. In fact, he may leave whereas he's left in place all the powers that have been running the dictatorship for many years.

My friend fears that over the next year or so the main leaders and anyone who organized this uprising will be quietly captured by the Egyptian secret police and done away with. Or, their jobs will disappear. And so on.

The revolution isn't a done deal at all, according to my friend.

Just like in Iran, where the US intelligence operatives take a long time to overthrow what they don't like, in Egypt, they'll take a long time to keep in place what suits them best. They'll let the leaders of the democracy movement show themselves,...then they'll make life difficult, if not impossible, for them.

Hello Sam and Steve !

I agree that we should not rule out the continued efforts to maintain the present set up.

At least the people in the street are aware of the deceptions - and they have some measure of solidarity. Hopefully this means they will react to people being disappeared/murdered.

It will be interesting to see how this unfolds. The Egyptian people will not be easily fooled with new puppets (I expect some compromises if the same people who are running things behind the scenes stay in power).

Also the cat is out of the bag in terms of the general idea that mass protests, with everyone backing each other, can work.

Also, one might consider that the Egyptian Army is made up of Egyptians such that they would not want to be massacring their own people. Soldiers may revolt if ordered to do so. Although Armies and police forces do tend to kill civilians in many instances, I think that the conditions in Egypt are such that extreme levels of violence will be avoided.

I recall that some "protesters" turned violent during the demonstrations but that most of these people were stooges for the Gov. (provocateurs) and that the demonstrators went out of their way to make sure the protests were peaceful. In this way the likelihood of a confrontation with the Army and security services was greatly minimised.

A lot of good things came out of the revolt in terms of the political awareness of the people protesting.

No one knows how things will turn out but it's going fairly well so far (fingers crossed).

Thanks for your comments !
