Mu-Barack Obama to the Rescue!

Obumbum is scrambling to replace "One Crony Egyptian Government with Another" before the Super Bowl Sunday with Jennifer Lopez.

From Zero Hedge [emphasis is mine]:

Just out from the NYT:

The Obama administration is discussing with Egyptian officials a proposal for President Hosni Mubarak to resign immediately, turning over power to a transitional government headed by Vice President Omar Suleiman with the support of the Egyptian military, administration officials and Arab diplomats said Thursday.

In other words, the formerly biggest spook of the Middle East, and quite possibly a former CIA asset, is about to become president, under the auspices of a US-endorsed "democratic" transition, which does nothing but replace one crony regime with another.

The proposal also calls for the transitional government to invite members from a broad range of opposition groups, including the banned Muslim Brotherhood, to begin work to open up the country’s electoral system in an effort to bring about free and fair elections in September, the officials said.

It is disturbing that the US administration does not comprehend that the Egyptian people (not to single out the MB) are sufficiently intelligent to see just how superficial this proposed "regime change" is. The only thing remaining is for George Soros to be propounding the benefits of "Open Society" on the streets of Cairo within weeks.

Cui bono? (other than trouble-free Super Bowl Sunday for Obama)

Muslim Brotherhood, for one, even though they didn't bother showing up in the protest until Tuesday, and other fundamentalist Islamicists who amply demonstrated (I hope) to secular Egyptians in Tahrir Square how fanatically brutal they were (in reference to Robert Fisk's report I quoted in my post).

And another? Well, I'll just link this article with the opening paragraph quote for your consideration:

Israel places resources at Suleiman's disposal "to protect the Egyptian regime" (2/1/2011 Middle East Monitor)

Well-placed Israeli sources have disclosed that the Zionist state has offered to place "all its capabilities" at the disposal of General Omar Suleiman, the recently appointed Vice President of Egypt, for the "protection of the regime in Egypt". This offer includes the implementation of "various operations to end the popular revolution". Israel has also asked Suleiman to work on preventing arms being smuggled into the Gaza Strip.

An official in Benjamin Netanyahu's office said that the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu called Suleiman, who is also the director of Egypt's General Intelligence Service, and expressed his concern about the situation in Egypt. Netanyahu apparently suggested the possibility of Israeli intelligence personnel undertaking various specialist operations to bring an end to the demonstrations. The source added that Netanyahu and Suleiman also discussed ways of securing the border between Israel and Egypt.
