Some say that the usa supported Mubarak to "the very end". However, the Egyptian protests started on 25 Jan 2011, and Obama called for Mubarak to step down only one week later, which is another indicator that the empire has more of a pre-planned plan than they are making out. The article below shows that the yanks met the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt shortly before the protests started. The Muslim Brotherhood throughout the region have proved themselves to be yet again, as they were in the days of the 1950s-1980s as the allies of the empire against the anti-imperialist nationalist movements, from the Libyan Jamahirya, to the Syrian Ba'ath regime, to Hizbullah and Iran. Despite many well-meaning and brave protesters, but who had no organisation and leadership to guide their aims, the Arab Spring increasingly seems like a empire operation to spring clean the region in order to defeat all obstacles to their total domination with a view to then going onto the face the South American left nationalists and Russia, China and India.
