Egypt from June Page (Feb. 12, 2011)
Freedom has started in the center of the earth.
I love the picture on MSN, just before Mubarak was ousted. It was of a woman with Egyptian flag face-paint and clothing in front of the UN, holding a sign: I LOVE YOU EGYPT. I looked up Eric Thayer on google and got onto this page:
It tells a story that is not being told on MSN.
The common soldiers won. I cannot find the quotes I believe were on this site yesterday about the military refusing to shoot civilians. Apparently, the commanders were scared into doing the right thing, and did not order civilians to be shot. There still are pictures of military officers being born on demonstrators shoulders. There are lots of pictures that show military camaraderie with the demonstrators, and/or the military people standing down.
There were more pictures. One of a woman expressing tenderness to harsh soldiers. One was of soldiers holding a baby. Several were of men protecting their own neighborhoods, some of whom bore long-knives.
Yes, the military took control of the government. But the commanders are now afraid of the commanded, ensuring freedom for the people. As I've pointed out before, there are almost 7 billion of us and only a handful of those who seek to control the masses. Those who seek to control must have the help of those they seek to control.
I think what happened in Egypt is a turning of the table. The government became afraid of the people. The lowest ranking soldiers rebelled against shooting civilians. After that, many of the commanders did what was right and threw off the oppressors.
This is doubly important when you realize that Egypt is the center of the world. It is the center of the land masses before continental drift.
This is the beginning of common people no longer complying with their own oppression.
6.49pm GMT: Reuters confirms reports regarding the Egyptian army's stance, and the army's statement that it would not use force against protesters demanding that Mubarak step down.
According to Reuters:
[The army's statement] said "freedom of expression" was guaranteed to all citizens using peaceful means. It was the first such explicit confirmation by the army that it would not fire at demonstrators who have taken to the streets of Egypt since last week to try to force Mubarak to quit.
"The presence of the army in the streets is for your sake and to ensure your safety and wellbeing. The armed forces will not resort to use of force against our great people," the army statement said.
"Your armed forces, who are aware of the legitimacy of your demands and are keen to assume their responsibility in protecting the nation and the citizens, affirms that freedom of expression through peaceful means is guaranteed to everybody." It urged people not resort to acts of sabotage that violate security and destroy public and private property. It warned that it would not allow outlaws and to loot, attack and "terrorize citizens".
A US army sniper followed orders and shot and killed Vicky Weaver while she held her baby in her own doorway on Ruby Ridge, in Northern Idaho. I wonder what he is thinking now. Hopefully his thoughts are something to the effect of "Go Egypt!" and "Go America!" Let Egypt be a lesson. Let the lesson spread.
