Egypt is rising up against the inequtites imposed on them by the predatory elite. Inspired by Tunisia they are in effect saying "some of us may die now, but if we do not act, more of us will die later".
The bankers carry out fraud, driven by a relentless greed. They own senior politicians who force through legislation which makes the public pay for the bankers theft. The legislation involves printing massive amounts of money (debt).
All that extra money means the value of the pound/dollar/euro is reduced. As the value of money is reduced, the price of food goes up. A loaf of bread which has doubled in price is still the same loaf of bread, with the same inherent value - it is the value of the money that has gone down.
Greedy bankers, corporate executives and politicians are directly responsible for poor people starving around the world. The people of Tunisia and Egypt have recognised this and said that enough is enough.
What we will now see is how the predators react. The present unrest is shaking them to the core. They rely upon people being divided, upon the people wearing uniforms keeping down the masses. It has not worked in Tunisia, will it work in Egypt?
So far the Egyptian military are staying neutral and have been welcomed by protesters, it is the police fighting the people.
There is no doubt that Obama, Cameron and the rest want Mubarak to stay in power, he will do their bidding with respect to Israel and will provide torture chambers for people they do not like.
Their public speech is nuanced, talking about people and democracy - but read between the lines.
When the US says it will review it's $1.5 billion aid package to Egypt,this is a message for the generals. Most of that aid goes toward military toys. The US wants the generals to think about life without those toys and make sure that the outcome is favourable to America.
