WHAT *IS* GOING ON BEHIND THESE MENA PROTESTS RIGHT NOW?
I think this current nato/gulfi manufactured protests of Muslims (see the orgs organising them, all backed,financed,organised from Saudi and Qatar) is the next phase of bringing chaos (neutralising as in the case of Gadafi's Libya) and recolonisation of the MENA region.
This is the next phase from the last one which was the 'Arab spring'. The last phase was a media/west/empire-liberal-friendly one - 'Arab spring' - which unleashed empire's number one ally's (saudi, but also other GCC such as Qatar etc) 'islamism' of all kinds (Ikhwani and salafi trends) under the banner of liberalism in places where they didnt have much presence and power (Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria etc).
This phase seems to bring them out fully into the open whipping them up to greater power and momentum to contain and develop war on Syria/Hizbullah/Iran etc. for nATO these protests are playing the perfect role they have been designated.
White imperialism is playing a sophisticated and clever game, or/and it works cos the masses who are falling for it are so politically weak/complicit/slavish/foolish.
Things will *only* turn around once we have a new generation leadership of the quality of Habash/Gaddafi/Nasser/WadiHaddad etc, but absolutely no sign of that as of yet, quite the opposite.
