USA robs freedom of people in the Arab world over a 30 year period

Reader comment on item: Anoush Ehteshami and Democracy in Egypt

Submitted by Baklava (United Kingdom), Feb 9, 2011 at 18:30

In trying to protect Israel the USA has installed despots in all countries surrounding it, paying them to deliberatley keep the people in a state of fear, repression, paranoia and hunger, as well as uneducated and without future.

No matter how you argue this point - citing the security of Israel or that of the US or whatever - this is true

Over the past 30 years the US has been the singular largest factor in supressing the freedom of the people of the ME. The American people have paid approx $1.5B(per despot) * 23 (countries) * 30 (years) resulting in a spectular $1035 Billion to steal the freedom of the people of the ME.

In this regard...the people of America too have been shafted ($345Billion/year) for 30 years where they could have enjoyed say a free health service, better education and other fine things that you (the people) of America deserve. The American people are unhealthy and in a state of depression because of this - your own administration.

No matter how you argue this point - citing the security of Israel or that of the US or whatever - this is true

Some muslims have obviously felt the need to be free in such an overwhelming manner that they have emigrated the land of their free ancestors and prophet to experience the freedoms that your administration has allowed you to have.

So as the years went by...the price for holding onto Israel was more immigration of muslims and we are where we are today, except that communications, greater population and American enforced repression is a model that can no longer be sustained.

Many ofcourse have seen & felt the evil policy to keep them repressed and unfortunately have turned to violence to free themselves from your clutches. On a side note to this - you could not have chosen a worst lot than muslims to keep down - naturally hot headed and very proud of their heritage - this was a mistake. Had you for example kept the hindus down - today although they MAY have asked for their freedom - never the less they would have instantly gravitated towards ahimsa (non-violence) and you could have got out scot free.

I am very hopeful though that the Egyptians (and the rest of the ME)are not an extreme people and hopefully you will not stand in their way when they do try to be free.

Your further dictation will obviously lead to the muslim brotherhood winning only time will tell if your mass suppression of other humans and indeed whether your buddies in Israel will be happy as you slowly run out of money and ideas

...so please...you have done enough damage...now butt out.
