Why USA Is Destabilizing Egypt

By Thomas C. Mountain

17 September, 2013

Destabilizing Egypt is part and parcel of Pax Americana’s “Crisis
Management” strategy in Africa. The USA wasn’t about to sit back and
watch as the beginnings of a transition to an independent government
in Egypt was taking place under the Morsi lead Muslim Brotherhood so
voila! coup de grace!

Pax Americana always preferred the brute force policy of Mubarak and
following the popular explosion in January, 2011 that brought down
their vassal they were waiting in the wings ready to bring back the
old regime.

The Egyptian military didn’t have to think this one up on their own,
they got it right out of a manual at one of the many sessions they
have attended for the past 30 plus years at various military war
colleges in the USA.

Cut off electricity during the hot weather, deliberately restrict fuel
supplies and of course full watts of propaganda on how “25 million
people signed a petition against” the Morsi government. Classic
destabilization campaign.

To be blunt, the USA will cause the Egyptian people to wage war
against themselves before it will allow any sort of transition to an
independent government in Egypt.

The Egyptian Army will still get its salaries and if matters become so
unstable that it can no longer be relied upon to “protect” the Suez
Canal, through which all the trade between Europe and Asia flows, then
there are always UN “peacekeepers” to do the job. So let the Egyptians
kill each other, its called crisis management, as in create a crisis
and then manage the ensuing chaos to better enforce Pax Americana in a
most critical region of the world.

The USA’s destabilizing of Egypt is just a part of the greater “crisis
management” strategy in East Africa’s Red Sea region, the best example
of which is the giant “Millennium Dam” being built by Ethiopia on the
Nile river.

It wasn't that long ago that threats of war were being made by heads
of state here alongside the Red Sea over the threat posed by cutting
off Egypt's historic use of the Nile waters by Ethiopia’s new mega

A closer look at this new dam, something one will not find in the
western media, reveals that it was the creation of the World Bank, 51%
owned by the USA. The dam itself is supposed to produce 6000 megawatts
when its is done, yet no one has tried to explain who is going to use
this huge energy surplus.

To start with 75% of Ethiopia’s 80 million+ people have never, ever,
had electricity and there are no plans let alone multi billions of
dollars to build an electrical distribution system for over 60 million
people. And even if they did the rural, agricultural based Ethiopian
economy would still only need 2000 megawatts. Ethiopia could build two
or three dams a fraction of the size and price of the “Grand
Millennium Dam” that would be more than sufficient for its needs and
would not threaten Egypts use of the Nile waters.

It was all Pax Americana’s doing to start with, helped along by some
“Abyssinian Imperialist” ambitions, that now posses such a serious
threat to Egypt's survival that dire threats of regional warfare were
made. Its called “crisis management”, take a perfectly solvable
problem and turn it into a potential explosion that will prevent any
further attempts at regional economic and political integration ie Pan
African cooperation.

That the USA is behind the destabilization of Egypt is no secret here
along the Red Sea with senior leadership from our region speaking
publicly about the problem. Pursuing peace is never popular with Pax
Americana, especially along strategically critical choke points like
the Suez Canal and the “Gate of Tears”, Baab Al Mandeb, the mouth of
the Red Sea into the Indian Ocean. Crisis management wont allow it.

The saying goes “All Road to Peace in the Horn of Africa and Red Sea
run through Asmara”, Eritrea which is trying its best to promote
principled dialogue and diplomacy to try to prevent the damage
inflicted upon us under the strategy of “crisis management” by the
purveyors of destabilization and violence, the USA.
