US and Arab Revolution:

Dictate Diktats To Dictators Or Not?

By Ali Al-Hail

 Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, February 21, 2011

   Almost entirely, without  hardly, a single exemption, US consecutive administrations, seem to be identically, obsessed with the word of 'dictate', especially, in the context of dealing with Arab dictators, in time of political crisis. For instance, in the course of the Tunisian and Egyptian popular revolutions, the Obama administration, hadn't been any different from former administrations, in claiming that, it didn't dictate to what the Tunisian and Egyptian regimes, should do.

   But, they all perceivably, did. Every time, they said they  hadn't dictated, in American politics, meant that, they had actually, dictated, in American reality.  Let's cite the Egyptian example as, it's more obvious.  Since the peace treaty with Israel,  branded as Camp David Accord of 1979, the US administrations, have been dictating to late President Sadat, and later, to ousted President Mubarak, what they should do.

   Let's be frank,  and just take it from the US \ EU supported  Zionist Jewish Israeli offensive war  on Gaza's civilians, during late 2008, and early, 2009, weren't  George Bush, JR, administration, and present Obama administration,  who have dictated to Hosni Mubarak regime what should he does.

   Hosni Mubarak, was reportedly, pleased to carry out the 'diktats'. Didn't he apparently, allow the Israeli former Foreign Minister, tzipi Levni, to utilize the Egyptian soil, from which she declared the 2008 \ 2009 Zionist war on Gaza, virtually, a week, from launching it? And almost certainly, all anti Gaza's decisions that followed suit, from Rafah Crossing closure, to building a steel siege around Gaza, had all not been  'diktats', what 'diktats' should have been?
