The United States is ripe for a revolution. People are pissed, and rightfully so. The only question that remains is if the restructuring will be peaceful, like what we saw happen in Iceland, or will it be violent, like what we see happening in Greece and Spain.
As Chris Hedges has implied on multiple occasions, the revolution is well on its way:
“I have seen my share of revolts, insurgencies and revolutions, from the guerrilla conflicts in the 1980s in Central America to the civil wars in Algeria, the Sudan and Yemen, to the Palestinian uprising to the revolutions in East Germany, Czechoslovakia and Romania as well as the wars in the former Yugoslavia. George Orwell wrote that all tyrannies rule through fraud and force, but that once the fraud is exposed they must rely exclusively on force. We have now entered the era of naked force. The vast million-person bureaucracy of the internal security and surveillance state will not be used to stop terrorism but to try and stop us.”

One goal of Egypt's 2010 union inspired Tahrir Square protests was fulfilled during the December, 2011 parliamentary elections. Nearly 65% of the nation's fifty million eligible voters turned out to vote. Turnout for the June 16 and 17, 2012 presidential election dropped to an estimated 15%* according to local and press observers. What happened?
Three factors contributed to the exponential decline in voting. Egypt's courts took leading candidates off of the final presidential ballot. The disappeared candidates had the support of 68% of the electorate according to a major preelection poll in early May. Egyptian courts also disqualified one third of the recently elected parliament. Just a day before the election, military commander Mohamed Hussein Tantawi announced that the constitution had been annexed. This was a nice way of saying that the military was assuming most of the powers of the presidency, leaving the newly elected chief executive with little to do.
The entire foundation of the election vanished in plain sight. There was no point in voting. The preelection actions by the courts and military represented the most fundamental form of election fraud by making the elections meaningless.
2011 was a turbulent year for the world. With chained revolutions in the Arab world, mounting financial crisis in Europe and the unprecedented wave of protests and mass demonstrations in the U.S. against the corporate system of the government which has long swallowed the rights of the defenseless majority of the people voraciously, one can call 2011 the year of global unrest and tumult.
For Iran, 2011 was also a challenging year. Benefiting from the all-out backing of the Western mainstream media, the apartheid regime of Israel for several times renewed its hawkish war threats against the Islamic Republic and repeatedly used an aggressive rhetoric against the people of Iran, threatening them with various military options which the United States and certain European governments embraced willingly and enthusiastically.

Monday was the day we heard that the "US believes al-Qa'ida is on the verge of defeat after deputy leader's death" as The Independent headlined the story. It stood out as a sequel to the recent United States action in Pakistan, which brought us the news (but not the body) of a dead Osama bin Laden. It appears that a US operated drone killed Al Qaeda's top deputy, one Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, a Libyan citizen. After decades as a jihadist, Rahman is no more. But is that the end of al Qaeda?
On Tuesday, foreign affairs columnist for the Asia Times, Pepe Escobar, published a remarkable column outlining the command structure of the victorious NATO backed military leaders. Abdelhakim Belhaj, the lead commander of the rebels, and the two top regional commanders were once affiliated with the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LGIF). In fact, commander Belhaj was once the subject of a US led extraordinary rendition (aka torture) in Thailand. About the time the US planned to send Belhaj to Guantanamo Bay, the Gaddafi's government requested his return to Libya.
Terrorist Rehab, Libyan Style
At this point, you may be thinking, "Good grief, that's when the real torture started!" Au contraire! The request for repatriation came from none other than Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi, son of Libya's former dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
The annals of history are full of fateful moments which scholars refer to as the great “what if's” of history, where if events had taken only a slight deviation the course of human affairs would have been dramatically different.
The following story about the 27 year old Private Henry Tandey of Warwickshire, UK might lead the reader to the conclusion that the 70 million men and women did not need to die making the world safe for democracy in World War I and II. 
September 28, 1918, the French village of Marcoing
Private Henry Tandey was mentioned five times in dispatches and certainly earned his VC during the capture of the French village and crossing at Marcoing, his regiment held down by heavy machine gun fire Tandey crawled forward, located the machine gun nest and took it out.
Arriving at the crossing Henry Tandey braved heavy fire to place wooden planks over a gaping hole enabling troops to roll across and take the battle to the Germans.
As the ferocious battle wound down and enemy troops surrendered or retreated a wounded German soldier limped out of the maelstrom and into Private Tandey's line of fire, the battle weary man never raised his rifle and just stared as Tandey resigned to the inevitable.
“I took aim but couldn't shoot a wounded man”, said Tandey, “so I let him go.”
The following Glossary, abbreviations and essay will help the reader understand why Henry Tandey VC DCM MM incorrectly concluded the simple squeeze of a trigger would have spared the world a catastrophe which cost tens of millions of lives.
Zionism: an organization of Jews who believed the Jewish people needed a nation of their own to escape persecution.
Judaism: Jews collectively who practice a religion based on the Torah and the Talmud.
RothIsm or Rothschildism: abbreviation for The Zionist movement corrupted and co-opted by The House of Rothschild and their agents to advance a New World Order agenda. In 1871, Albert Pike, Grand Master of the Luciferian group known as the Order of the Palladium, received a vision, which he described in a letter dated August 15, 1871 that graphically outlined plans for three world wars that were seen as necessary to bring about the One World Order.
The second world war is to be used to forment the controversy between fascism and political RothIsm with the slaughter of Jews in Germany a lynchpin in bringing hatred against the German people. This is designed to destroy fascism (which the Rothschilds created) and increase the power of political RothIsm. This war is also designed to increase the power of communism to the level that it equalled that of united Christendom. 
RBZJ: The Rothschild Backed RothIsm Jews, acronym used when referring to anyone connected to or related to the House of Rothschild.
RAGENT: Abbreviation for a Rothschild Agent
The House of Rothschild (the Rothschilds): Global financial empire founded in the late 18th century by a dynasty of Khazars, an ancient people from Georgia. 
The Rothschilds control a vast portion of the world's wealth and are the hidden hand behind all the social-cataclysms: the French, Russian and American Revolutions; Communism, Capitalism, World Wars and the Modern State of Israel. The Rothschilds are not the Jews of the bible and do not practice Judaism.
Rothschild’s secret societies, The Bavarian Illuminati, Order of Perfectibilists, the Skull and Bones are no longer classified as prehistoric science fiction and have their origins in the ancient religions and the occult: Jesuits, Knights Templar, Rosicrucian’s, Freemasons and the Kabala.
The ruling cabal practices satanic rituals and places direct descendants, whether legitimate or illegitimate in the leadership councils everywhere in the world.
Rothschild founded and funded the RothIsm movement to further a New World Order agenda.
Treaty of Versailles
The second time WWI was over the Allies won with help from the doughboys.
The Treaty of Versailles was the agreement among the winners and the Allies, to decide on how to punish the losers, the Central Powers. The burden of the war reparations clause that required Germany pay £6,600 million was decreed by the Rothschild-affiliated Bleichroder Bank of Berlin and was so unfair, that when the French leader, Clemenceau, was asked by the press what the leaders had given the world by the treaty, he said, “We have guaranteed another war in twenty years.”
The future of the defeated Central Powers was not decided by the Allies but according to Prime Minister Lloyd George, “International bankers swept statesmen, politicians, journalists and jurists all to one side and issued Versailles orders with the imperiousness of absolute monarchs”.
Once The Treaty was ratified and the corrupt Weimar government was forced on the German people, Wall Street financiers and the international bankers began the financing of the most destructive war in history. Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler by Professor Antony C. Sutton, a distinguished scholar, documents how the roles played by Max Warburg, J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Abraham Kuhn and Solomon Loeb are connected to the Rothschild global financial empire.
Prescott Bush, patriarch of two Presidents and connected to the House of Rothschild, was funding Hitler from America, while German soldiers were killing Americans. Bush’s company was seized under the, “Trading With The Enemy,” Act but the Anti-Defamation League has never criticized the Bush family.
Under Versailles the old Austrian Empire was Balkanized and the corrupt Weimar government forced on the German people made Hitler’s rise to power possible.
Revolutions rippling across the Arab World have left earth's elites trembling in their gilded Crocs. They've seen just how easily populism can pierce their thin veneer of permanence, and they know what's in store: in the age old battle of oligarchs vs. oppressed, the underdogs have been growing new teeth.
Undercurrents of discontent can brew for lifetimes, like in Egypt or Tunisia, until social media ultimately brings it to a boil. Instant interconnection - knowing that huge numbers of fellow humans feel the same way at the same time - provides the empowerment needed to break the barrier of fear binding the hegemonic house of cards.

After weeks of indecision, the NATO powers and a few Arab states have taken action against the Kadafi regime and its armed forces. NATO aircraft and missiles have devastated loyalist air defenses, troops concentrations, and supply convoys. Rebel forces have been heartened and have even made some counteroffensives out of their enclave in Benghazi. (Image)
NATO resolve is not strong, but an agreement today (March 24) will likely guarantee that the air campaign continues. Abandoning it now or reducing it to a no-fly zone only would be a severe embarrassment to the alliance and lead to lasting mistrust within it. Furthermore, it might leave Libya in a murderous stalemate or an unstable partition ever on the brink of renewed war.

The Libyan uprising once seemed sure to follow the pattern in Tunisia and Egypt where longstanding autocrats stepped down after large popular demonstrations. Colonel Kadafi, however, has rallied his forces and is quashing the opposition. This has put policymakers in the region and around the world in a dilemma between their preference for democracy and their reluctance to intervene. There are a few actions that can be embarked upon, but which is optimal and who if anyone will take the lead? (Image)
