US Deer in the headlights of the demonstrators.
US intelligence and administration seem to
be caught like a Deer in the headlights of
Are the demonstrations good or bad even
for the people? The popular answer is
of course the demonstrators are getting
rid or abusive regimes.
But nobody knows whats coming, who
will the next governance be?
Will the people actually be better or worse
off, and again the popular answer is
of course it will be better, but actually
What is the best for the USA?
And I hear how the Evil US empire
supports all these bad guys.
The US brings alot of pressure against
regimes abusive of its people, but
they have to deal with what ever regime
is in power.
It is not USA's responsibility to change
bad regimes, they don't have that mandate
In the case of Afghan and Pakistan its
been a 10 year response to an attack in
USA on 911.
And any future attacks on USA can expect
a heavier response, but US has seen the
difficulties in trying to change regimes,
the SysAdmin science just isn't there
yet, and its very problematic and expensive.
And US doesn't have a good handle on
Infowar yet, they are getting their asses
kicked by the Paki Mil and Taliban, ISI in
an all out infowar in Pakistan.
There is a wolf chewing on the Paki leg
the Taliban, and Pakistan views US as the
enemy. And providing the Wolf safe havens
in its own country. Pakistan spends more time
protecting the Taliban than fighting them.
Some how the paradigm has gotten turned
Who are the leaders of these demonstrations?
Who are they inside? pro-American, Pro-Al qaeda
We do know who the demonstrators are.
Most of the people in these countries.
But that doesn't guarantee a good regime or
even a democracy.
US Intelligence has never seen a force like this
before, and missed them on their radar in the
beginning and are scrambling in almost war zones
to better understand WHO they really are.
And one faction says stay out of it.
Its their countries, their choices, their Governments.
And US aid is often spun as having imperial motives.
Intervention for oil.
Public help is suspect, and too little to late,
covert help is viewed as suspect also
Either way interfering in another nations workings
and ulterior motives.
The primary problem is no one knows who the
leaders are in some cases there are no leaders,
and no assurances they will move towards democracy.
Of course everyone roots for the underdog, and against
abusive regimes, but this is a very new paradigm.
And many uncertainties abound.
If it turns out bad, and US intervenes they will be blamed.
However if US does nothing, they will also justly be blamed.
This demonstration force, will of the people is spreading
world wide, it will eventually come to China and Russia and
in some form even come to USA.
But USA can do some things safely .
US can support its fundamental seminal beliefs,
Belief in democracies, freedom of speech
and personal freedom.
Support actions to insure access to WWW,
and free communication.
USA can find a fundamental mandate,
in its Constitution and support those freedoms
world wide and without fear.
US can't be a witness, a bystander,
they are a world power and we are viewing
an opportunity to demonstrate this leadership
in a new paradigm.
Support fundamental freedoms with both
allies and enemies and act to insure those rights.
Secure communication channels, access to the WWW,
and even cell phone access.
Until the paradigm of Who they are clears up,
US can support human freedoms without regret
