"The End of Spring"

"The End of Spring"

Recent ones news from Egypt are as follows: Egyptian Vice-President ElBaradei resigned, the Egyptian police took control of the main stronghold of the Islamists in Cairo and detained eight leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The events in this Arab country quite logically moved to the second phase, the next after the military coup.

The generals, arresting the former president and a significant part of the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood, waited time, during which they made a lot of peace-loving, but completely unacceptable for the headless movement of the proposals. After waiting for the protesting supporters of the overthrown President Mursi to demonstrate their incompetence in all their glory, the military, demonstratively shrugging their shoulders, set about stripping.

It cannot be said that everything that happens is the hellish intent of the generals.

They rather acted like real military - according to the situation. The situation dictated quite trivial steps, and the army made them. Since the Muslim Brotherhood came to power and Mursi was elected, both the generals and the civilian authorities of Egypt, who for the most part consist of the same military, only retired, have done what is commonly used in the language of sabotage.

As a result, the situation of diarchy quickly turned into a situation of anarchy, after which, waiting for the frenzied population to remember the pre-revolutionary time as manna from heaven, the military leadership of Egypt fulfilled the "will of the people."

Is it worth it to blame the military? Most likely no.

They acted very logically and quite predictably. The problem lies in the Muslim Brothers themselves. They did not have their own Dzerzhinsky, who would be able to create an Egyptian Emergency Commission to combat counterrevolution and sabotage. As a result, the "brothers" were convinced by their own example of the correctness of the classic who said: "Every revolution only costs something if it can defend itself." For them, no one did their work did not - the result is natural.

Clearing the political field of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt will have far-reaching consequences for both the country and the region. Nowhere, in any country of the “Arab spring”, the Islamists have failed to gain a foothold in power and begin to carry out reforms. The practical and managerial failure of theorists from theology has become the logical cause of the collapse of Islamist projects.

The first to surrender their positions were the radicals of Libya, having failed to hold power in the hands of the government of Al-Kiba and ceded it to Ali Zidane and Mahmoud Jibril. So far they have influence and representation in parliament, but now their chances of returning are extremely small. In Tunisia, the military still retain loyalty to the Islamist government of An-Nahd, but its position is already very shaky.

Of course, both Egypt, and Tunisia, and Libya were able to start their counter-Islamic counter-revolution, including due to the fact that Qatar gradually surrendered and finally finally surrendered its position as a sponsor of the Muslim Brotherhood movement.

Qatar has extremely serious financial problems, and now it faces more mundane problems of survival. The Islamists abandoned by them are trying to find a way out one by one - and, say, Hamas is already returning, like a lost daughter, under the paternal hand of Iran. The Egyptian "brothers" in this situation do not shine - they managed to make too many enemies in the last year.

The army imposed a state of emergency in Egypt - for a month so far. This month will obviously be lived for good reason: the military will try to decapitate the entire movement and to take the most strict approach to any attempts by the Islamists to return even the current status quo.

150 – 160 killed during the time since the coup was not such a significant payment for appeasing the largest Arab country, which is in a state of discord and collapse.

      The scriptwriter of the riots in Egypt, and throughout the Middle East, is known. I'm afraid everything is just beginning in Egypt. The "brothers" have a wealth of experience in underground work, in addition to them, forces with combat experience have joined. The military who carried out the coup are used to obeying commands - over the ocean. In a word, the situation is very difficult.

        Maybe it starts, it just looks more like a finale. It is already clear who and how will act, it is also clear that the military will not stop. Underground workers will be pinched and planted forever, and if they start buzzing then they will simply end it.

          Most likely there will be no open war, as in Syria, if there is no external sponsor. Qatar is experiencing problems, the Saudis themselves are concerned about internal disagreements and want to leave the game while retaining their face.
          Therefore, the resistance of the brothers - "Ikhwan" (as they are called in Egypt) will be carried out according to the principle - "fired and fled." And these are many years, if not decades, of terror and terrorist threats, the pursuit of extremists and clashes with armed gangs.
          Syrian version suggests solid financing from the outsidebut where to get it is a big question.
          As for the Egyptian army, it considers itself to be a special united caste, above all other layers, and everyone who stands in its way will be wet, unlike the Assad army, which at the beginning of the uprising experienced serious internal problems, which resulted in disorganization of management, a split and a decrease in the level of combat readiness. Although it is an honor and praise to Assad that he managed to survive in these conditions and maintain the combat-ready backbone of the army against all odds. Now the Syrian army exactly corresponds to the Russian proverb - for one beaten two unbeaten give- gaining invaluable combat experience.
          If in Syria, despite the flow of petrodollars, bearded men cannot do anything, then in Egypt sponsors need to think twice before investing in this hopeless enterprise.

            do not believe what the media write and shows. In Syria, they showed a 5th rally and called it the wrath of the people. But millions of rallies in Damascus were not even covered. Euronews showed a whole day a single pithek of a silent man in Istanbul, when like a 2-millionth rally in support of Erdogan took place two blocks from the picket site. Today they blow the whole story that, in Egypt, the army in Cairo is fighting terrorists. And on YouTube, hundreds of video frames like snipers kill unarmed demonstrators. Ask yourself why, when a Syrian GB officer shoots a demonstrator, it is tyranny .a murder of the same in Egypt is considered the fight against terrorism? all these are double standards. The media cover events as their sponsors tell them - the West and the United States. And about Egypt, to kindle a fire, there will always be cattle that will throw firewood.

            it’s still not clear with Syria. it’s too early to talk about victory. until Assad freed the Homs, bearded men hit in Latakia. I had to transfer part of the strength from Homs to Latakia. Asad lacked strength, which is not surprising. The losses are made up for inexperienced, and there’s no time to teach them how to fight

        And this is like a bonus game. Apparently the main sponsor does not have enough money and people to support the booze in two places at once. Here in the SAR, it is not over yet, but you want the terrorist war to begin in Egypt. A dumb penny ... So it turns out that if in the SAR, God forbid, the terrorists win, that they are unlikely to receive money for the prize booze in Egypt.

    From yesterday's message of Polish Radio

    Polish Foreign Ministry Concerned about Christian Persecution in Egypt 16.08.2013 13:04

    "The Polish Foreign Ministry calls on both sides to the conflict in Egypt to start negotiations and end the violence. Deputy Foreign Minister Boguslaw Vinid noted that the Polish Foreign Ministry is watching with particular concern the fate of religious minorities attacked by Muslims. He stressed that Christians, mostly Copts," for Islamic radicals are an easier target than police. During yesterday's clashes in Egypt, 22 churches were destroyed, including 7 Catholic. Christian schools were also set on fire, a Franciscan monastery and a hospital were destroyed. A spokesman for the Egyptian Catholic Church said Muslims accuse Christians of the overthrow of President Mursi, which leads to sectarian confrontation and increased terror. The head of the Egyptian Coptic Church, Patriarch Tavadros, must go into hiding, fearing for his life. According to official figures, 638 people died in clashes between the security forces and taught wounds. "

    The Russian Foreign Ministry does not show concern. The media are silent, the voice of the head of the Russian Orthodox Church is not heard.

      So there was a deal for bespantovye Poles: let them go to the new Crusade, defend the churches, and we will remember how Catholics giggled and sometimes directly spoiled when the Orthodox New Rome (called the Greeks called Constantinople) and the Orthodox Balkan kingdoms of the Slavs from the invasion of Islam . Koptov is certainly a pity, but they must defend their millions and their temples and quarters with weapons in their hands, or leave the stage.

      The American media called on the West to adopt Russian skepticism about the "Arab spring"

      Russia, unlike Western countries, initially showed a skeptical attitude towards revolutions in the Arab world, now the West should listen to the opinion of Moscow and dilute their positive hopes with a more sober look at the situation, American media write on Friday.
      From the very beginning, Russian experts spoke of possible economic collapse, religious conflict and political chaos.
      The skepticism of Russian citizens regarding the outcome of popular unrest is explained by their own experience.

      History shows that uprisings never end in anything good, and the participation of ordinary people in politics is doubtful.
      The Kremlin’s opinion should not be neglected only because of the conviction that the position of Russia is dictated solely by internal interests and is not reasoned in any way.

      People, of course, should have the opportunity to choose how they will be controlled, but mass uprisings in poor countries, as history shows, usually do not end very well.

      “Every revolution is only worth something if it knows how to defend itself.”

      In principle, everything is natural. A weak government that does not know how to hold on to power must leave. An election or a military coup, these are technical details. Only blood has no justification, although one of the revolutionary classics said: "there are no revolutions without blood." The "brothers" who did not have a firm political line were defeated, now the decisive moment for the new government. If they fail to stabilize the situation, a civil war will break out, fueled from the outside. The region is already explosive, and it’s clear how it could end. Now, in the interests of all countries that have their own interests (he said) in the region, they must forget their strife, and not let the fire ignite, which will not be able to control.

    American and European strategists are persistently and persistently putting into practice their theory of "controlled chaos". The phrase of one of the Muslim Brotherhood supporters told to our correspondents is noteworthy: why the West does not help us, because the military of Egypt violate democracy? Naive person. The task of the West is to work out the issues of creating chaos, while in the Arab world. And then comes the turn of other countries that disagree with American politics. And where does the democracy!?. The creation of controlled chaos is one of the components of the policy of world domination. There is little doubt that America will apply these techniques to Russia. Remember the Orange Revolution, which did not take place in Russia. The "Arab Spring" has arrived. We must not let our guard down.

    all troubles can be attributed to the United States, Jews, Freemasons, Satan and aliens. it is convenient because removes responsibility from direct participants. what we see in Egypt, Syria, Libya is only and exclusively the result of the activities and merit of the local rulers (Assad, Mubarak, Gaddafi). For decades they have been building an uncontested system of power, suppressing any dissent and dissent. they squeezed the spring for too long and now it unclenched. and only for the reason that there was no reasonable, competent, adequate opposition in these countries and could not be for the above reason, adventurers and fanatics entered the struggle for power. a similar situation has developed in many post-Soviet countries (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan). it is a pernicious way to create complete and absolute autocracy. in the event of the death of the "king" (real or political) there is no alternative in the country, since all alternatives are either killed, or in prison, or in distant emigration.
    in the united states nothing bad will happen if Obama ceases to be president, in france olanda was elected, and sarkozy went on a "well-deserved" vacation, and france did not fall apart. protests were held in turkey, and if in the next elections the psr led by erdogan are in opposition to the new government, civil war will not start. such stable political systems take decades to build. sooner or later, the countries of the "Arab spring" will either come to the same democratic (semi-democratic) models, or they will be mired in permanent chaos, interrupted by periods of totalitarianism.

Politicians are all in sight, who knows what sixth, IMHO today the most likely next president will be Ivanov. For those who came from Sirius I explain - we have an alternative system, but now there is nothing for alternatives to catch, because the popularity is not the same.
