The Iranians believe the US was behind the last protests there, and that the CIA was attempting to infiltrate their government....
Mike Whitney----Do we know whether foreign agents or US-backed NGOs participated in the demonstrations in Tahrir Square? Could they have played a part in toppling Mubarak?
K R Bolton--The revolts in Tunisia, Egypt and as they are spreading further afield have all the hallmarks of the NED/Soros “color revolutions” that were fomented in the former Soviet bloc states and in Myanmar and elsewhere. They all follow the same pattern and many years of planning, training and funding have gone into the ridiculously called “spontaneous” (sic) revolts.
The organizations that have spent years and much money creating revolutionary organizations in Tunisia, Egypt and elsewhere include the National Endowment for Democracy, USAID, International Republican Institute, Freedom House, Open Society Institute, and an array of fronts stemming therefrom, including: National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, Center for International Private Enterprise, and the American Center for International Labor Solidarity.
It is hard, considering these men's affiliations, to believe that the change they want to see is anything less than a generation that drinks more Pepsi, buys more consumerist junk, and believes the United States government every time they purvey their lies to us via their corporate owned media.
While the activists attending the Movements.org summit adhere to the philosophies of "left-leaning" liberalism, the very men behind the summit, funding it, and prodding the agenda of these activists are America's mega-corporate combine. These are the very big-businesses that have violated human rights worldwide, destroyed the environment, sell shoddy, overseas manufactured goods produced by workers living in slave conditions, and pursue an agenda of greed and perpetual expansion at any cost. The hypocrisy is astounding unless of course you understand that their nefarious, self-serving agenda could only be accomplished under the guise of genuine concern for humanity, buried under mountains of feel-good rhetoric, and helped along by an army of exploited, naive youth.
In his latest debate on the France 2 TV channel, discussion show anchor Yves Calvi expressed alarm about the possible rise of Islamism in Egypt and Tunisia. However, here we will consider how, if we leave the emotionally-charged media coverage to one side and attempt to analyse the contradictions between the West and the Arab world rationally, these revolutions are less of a threat than an example for us Westerners to follow. We have the opportunity to create a fairer world. Why be afraid?
Ahmadinejad said that the world is witnessing a revolution managed by Imam Mahdi, the 12th infallible imam who disappeared in the 10th century and who, it is believed, will return to usher in a rule of justice. "The final move has begun … we are in the middle of a global revolution managed by the dear (12th Imam). A great awakening is unfolding. One can witness the hand of the imam in managing it.
"This is a global revolution, managed by the imam of the ages," he told the crowds gathered in and around Tehran's central Azadi Square. He predicted the formation of a world government, ruled by the 12th imam: "Hearts and beliefs are swiftly leaning toward forming a global governance and the necessity of the rule of the perfect human, linked to the heavens."

My opinion - anyway Mubarak would have left his position due to age/health issues. His son has much weaker position and in "chaotic" transition of power unwanted (to those who organized this) elements could get power in Egypt due to lots of inner problems with political opposition and public revolt.
So it was a controlled transition of power. Public got to release steam. Egyptian opposition was allowed in the open while real power remained in Egyptian military hands( Mubarak was from Egyptian military elite, by the way).
Elections will happen. Controlled ones.
Someone is destabilizing Middle East and removing unpopular rulers while blocking fanatics. Doubt that it is Mahdi number whatever. Might be someone number 44. World chess...
