The 21st century sure is one of historic change; not only the growth of China as an economic power together with Brazil, India, and Russia (BRIC) as a second polar center in world economy generating economic developments and the end of colonialism as it moves away from the domination of finance capital of the US superpower. The attached article in the Nation sums up the political background of the eruption in Egypt and Middle East politics.
We also want to call your attention to several stories in the New York Times, in the latter part of last week through Sunday, which exposes the political battle between Obama and the Pentagon State-Department cabal that seeks to maintain US domination in Egypt and the surrounding area. If anyone wants copies, we would be pleased to send it, preferably by snail mail, as we will make copies where necessary.
I know that there will be differences of opinion on Obama’s vision, which challenges eco-political domination and favors internal democratic development, and that is precisely why I am raising these questions.
