Mass Protests Grow as Military Drags Egypt Back to Dictatorship

Mass Protests Grow as Military Drags Egypt Back to Dictatorship | Middle East & Northern Africa | Scoop.it
Since the coup by Egypt's military, political repression in Egypt has intensified.
Manolete' John Garcia's insight:

“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” Frederick Dougglas


In 2011 based on the history of rthe Egyptian military since they first took power in 1952, that they would never relinquish power completely and if gived the change would drag the country backward into a Military Dictatorship which the Elites of Egypt love.  This is coming to pass

Dick Cheney cancels Toronto trip, says Canada is too dangerous

Former U.S. vice-president Dick Cheney has cancelled an April appearance in Toronto citing concerns that Canada is too dangerous
Manolete' John Garcia's insight:

It takes a lot to piss off Canadians…especially Canadians who are still IN Canada. Sure, we’ve got our fair share of Ted Cruzs and Alanis Morissettes in the states, but they had to cross the border to even cop an attitude. So, what does it take to get arrested for war crimes in Canada? Well, you could start by being Dick Cheney. - See more at: http://aattp.org/canadians-demand-dick-cheney-be-arrested-for-war-crimes-on-his-upcoming-trip-video/#sthash.zjsuWSPT.dpuf

Rift Between Cairo, Washington Deepens - Al-Monitor: the Pulse of the Middle East

Rift Between Cairo, Washington Deepens - Al-Monitor: the Pulse of the Middle East | Middle East & Northern Africa | Scoop.it
The US decision to curtail Egypt's military aid, while unlikely to influence Cairo's growing divergence from US policy, could give Washington a chance to reset what the goals should be.
Manolete' John Garcia's insight:
Rift Between Cairo, 
Washington Deepens . . . 

Projecting a deep disdain for Washington’s policies of the past few months, Egypt’s leaders are neither begging for US support nor waiting for Washington to dictate the future course of bilateral relations. Egypt has sued for divorce, and the US decision to curb military aid simply consummates the separation.

Regardless of policy decisions taken in Washington, the 35-year partnership between Washington and Cairo is quickly fraying. At this point, no US policy shift regarding economic or military assistance would be decisive in influencing the calculus of Egypt’s leaders. In Egypt’s starkly polarized political context — where the generals perceive their power and position at stake — the Egyptian military will continue its clampdown against domestic opposition in spite of Washington’s advice.

It’s not often that Republican hack and Fox news host Bill O’Reilly actually grills a top ranking member of the GOP, especially someone with a stature as high as former Vice President Dick Cheney, but that is exactly what happened last night.

During a discussion about the costs, benefits, and consequences of Dick Cheney’s war in Afghanistan, which he orchestrated by downright manufacturing evidence and forcing higher-ups in the military and executive branch to go along with these lies.
