The B-52 will Take Care of You
While the Egyptian presidential election is at our door step, I only believe that our President did not initiate the so-called change of article 76 of the constitution to allow presidential multiple candidates to run for presidency, because he woke up one day born anew believing that freedom and democracy are essential to run a state. Mubarak himself being an army pilot is very aware by now of the capabilities of the B-52 after Iraq. He also learned his lesson very well that the US is capable of stretching its arms to Asia to grab Saddam from a hole under the ground.
The first signal that ignited most of the Arab oppressed nations’ battle towards democracy and freedom was the stunning, ravishing B-52. Despite the love and hate relationship that most of the nations in the Middle East experience with the US because of the previous support of the US to dictators, I think there must be recognition for the B-52. Without it, Egyptians would not have had all these demonstrations in the streets of Egypt. Mubarak did not lift Emergency Law since 1981 and he is still the sole ruler and he wants to continue to 2011. The only change that has been made for a fact is the toppling of Saddam. Just to let you know the good news, Mubarak intends to change the name of the Emergency Law after September elections to Terrorism Law, subjecting all anti-Mubarak Egyptians to the adjective of "terrorist". Wait for me after September elections: I all be signing as Freedom for Egyptians terrorist!
Being a friend and collaborator with the former Iraqi regime, the current regime of Egypt is threatened but has not changed. Mubarak helped Saddam in the 80s to kill thousands of innocent Iraqis, Kurds and Iranians. Read this report by the CIA. What will prevent the current regime to kill or torture us except the B-52? What kind of drastic change that can happen to the regime in Egypt to turn it into morally straight regime abiding by international standards for democracy and freedom.
The following is quoted from the CIA report on the Egyptian regime's role in the Iraqi chemical war saga.
During the early years, Egyptian scientists provided consultation, technology, and oversight allowing rapid advances and technological leaps in weaponization. With the Iran-Iraq war well underway, Egypt assisted Iraq in CW (chemical weapons) production:
- In 1983, Egypt made modifications to the Grad 122 mm Multiple Launch Rocket System to enable warheads to store chemical agents.
- In 1984, Egypt exported Grad rockets with plastic inserts to hold chemical agents.
- In the mid 1980s, Iraq invited Egyptian chemical weapons experts to Iraq to assist in producing Sarin munitions.
Yes, I am the future. I believe in that.
