As we have documented, the so-called popular revolutions spreading across the Middle East are orchestrated affairs unleashed by the globalists, their NGOs, and agencies of the U.S. government.
“What happened in Georgia with the Rose Revolution and Orange Revolution in Ukraine in 2003-2004 was part of a long-term strategy orchestrated by the Pentagon, the State Department and various US-financed NGOs like Freedom House and National Endowment for Democracy to create pro-NATO regime change in those former Soviet Union areas and to literally encircle Russia,” author and researcher William Engdahl told RT in January.
”What is going on in the Middle East with the Jasmine Revolution in Tunisia that we saw a few days ago, and now in Egypt with Mubarak in his 80s, and obviously a regime that is not exactly the most stable one, we have a food crisis taking place as a backdrop and the IMF coming and telling these countries to eliminate their state food subsidies so you have, of course, the explosive background for popular unrest. Within that you have these NGOs, like Freedom House, training activists and trade unions and various other organizations to demand democracy, demand human rights and so forth,” he added.
Even members of the United Nations have accused Freedom House of being a CIA front that supports terrorists.
On Thursday, Defense Secretary Gates instructed the Syrian military to depose leader Bashar al-Assad and “empower a revolution.”

“I’ve just come from Egypt, where the Egyptian army stood on the sidelines and allowed people to demonstrate and in fact empowered a revolution. The Syrians might take a lesson from that,” Gates added.
While Assad is certainly a hereditary dictator, he is also one of the most popular leaders in the Arab world, according to a CNN Arabic poll conducted in 2009. If you follow the corporate media in the United States, however, you would think Assad is as reviled as Mubarak was in Egypt.
Internet activists and organizers in academia have been financed with over half a billion dollars through the State Department’s Middle East Partnership Initiative program to overthrow outdated dictatorships in the Middle East. Gates’ comments reveal Syria will be the next domino to topple over. The globalists are exploiting Syria’s difficult economic and social conditions, including high unemployment, rising food prices, constraints on personal freedom, and endemic corruption.
Gates did not bother to mention that Egyptians will not be allowed to protest their new government. On Wednesday, the Egyptian cabinet approved a decree that criminalizes strikes, protests, demonstrations and sit-ins that interrupt private or state owned businesses or affect the economy in any way.
The new Egyptian government is a creature of the Supreme Armed Forces Council headed by Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, who served as Mubarak’s defense minister for two decades. The military is controlled by Egypt’s elite and thus the globalists now engineering color revolutions throughout the neighborhood.
In order to head off the demands of Gates and the globalists, on Thursday Assad agreed to unprecedented reforms to his one-party Baathist state. Piecemeal reforms, however, will not be acceptable to the global elite and the political establishment in the United States.
