Just read this article on yahoo news. If someone else has something up please excuse this thread but i did search for info on this and didnt find a previous one.

The Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh is claiming that the US and Israel are behind all the middle east unrest and goes as far as revealing a secret room/headquarters in Tel Aviv that has a sole focus on destabilizing the Arab World. He also claims it is a Zionist Agenda. This would answer many many questions we have had with the uprisings, potential false flags, the conspiracy behind shooting oil prices through the roof, etc. Here is the link...thoughts, comments, stars and flags appreciated. =)

... Yeah, I've thought that myself many times ... It's all just happened quite suddenly like a domino effect! There's surely someone big behind all this happening ...

Just take a walk on memory lane... Remember the south american "revolutions" that took place? Who were the people responsible for those "revolutions"?

It's the same here, the exact same Modus Operandi. Get the "people" to rise against their government and then propose something "better"...

Also remember that this happened in Iran with the Shah... But the people were smart enough to realize what happened and Komeni came back, helped the people have a REAL revolution to make things right for their country... (notice the part where I said "for their country"??)...

How's that for an answer?

Lets also remember that the Rose Revolution in Georgia (2003) and the Orange Revolution in the Ukraine (2004) were instigated by US interests operating through the National Endowment for Democracy, the National Democratic Institute and Freedom House, as well as organizations funded in part by George Soros.

Here is an interesting quote from an article entitled The Protest Movement in Egypt: "Dictators" do not Dictate, They Obey Orders:

The cooptation of the leaders of major opposition parties and civil society organizations in anticipation of the collapse of an authoritarian puppet government is part of Washington's design, applied in different regions of the World.

The process of cooptation is implemented and financed by US based foundations including the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and Freedom House (FH). Both FH and the NED have links to the US Congress. the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and the US business establishment. Both the NED and FH are known to have ties to the CIA.

The NED is actively involved in Tunisia, Egypt and Algeria. Freedom House supports several civil society organizations in Egypt.

"The NED was established by the Reagan administration after the CIA’s role in covertly funding efforts to overthrow foreign governments was brought to light, leading to the discrediting of the parties, movements, journals, books, newspapers and individuals that received CIA funding. ... As a bipartisan endowment, with participation from the two major parties, as well as the AFL-CIO and US Chamber of Commerce, the NED took over the financing of foreign overthrow movements, but overtly and under the rubric of “democracy promotion.” (Stephen Gowans, January « 2011 "What's left"

While the US has supported the Mubarak government for the last thirty years, US foundations with ties to the US State department and the Pentagon have actively supported the political opposition including the civil society movement. According to Freedom House: "Egyptian civil society is both vibrant and constrained. There are hundreds of non-governmental organizations devoted to expanding civil and political rights in the country, operating in a highly regulated environment." (Freedom House Press Releases).

In a bitter irony, Washington supports the Mubarak dictatorship, including its atrocities, while also backing and financing its detractors, through the activities of FH, the NED, among others.

Under the auspices of Freedom House, Egyptian dissidents and opponents of Hosni Mubarak were received in May 2008 by Condoleezza Rice at the State Department and the US Congress. They also met White House National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley, who was "the principal White House foreign policy adviser" during George W. Bush's second term.

Freedom House’s effort to empower a new generation of advocates has yielded tangible results and the New Generation program in Egypt has gained prominence both locally and internationally. Egyptian visiting fellows from all civil society groups received [May 2008] unprecedented attention and recognition, including meetings in Washington with US Secretary of State, the National Security Advisor, and prominent members of Congress. In the words of Condoleezza Rice, the fellows represent the "hope for the future of Egypt."
Freedom House, (emphasis added).

That said, I remain optimistic about the direction the Middle East is going.
