While the current global revolt sweeping across the Middle East and North Africa is born out of a universal human cry for freedom, food security and a decent standard of living, it is important to understand that the global elite are waiting in the wings to exploit the chaos as an opportunity to re-order the geopolitical landscape in their image, particularly by exploiting the demonstrations as a vehicle through which to weaken and topple the Iranian government.
Citizens of oil producing nations must see more benefit from their country’s national resources, billionaire investor George Soros has told the BBC.Revolts in Libya were partly the result of “revulsion against a corruption” fed by the misuse of oil money, he added.
More “transparency and accountability” was needed from other producers such as Russia and Saudi Arabia he said.Mr Soros also predicted the Iranian regime would be overthrown in the “bloodiest of the revolutions”.

Surveying the stupefying spectacle of barefaced lies and weasly distortions, facile abandonment of previously-heralded high principle, cynical exploitation of pain and loss and official fatuousness, can we be blamed for asking: “What is going on here?
While there is nothing new in kind about the hysterical attacks on conservative political and media figures coming from every sector of the Establishment Left in the wake of the Tucson shootings, there does seem to be a big difference in intensity and quantity. It is everywhere; it is unrelenting, and “passionate intensity” does not even begin to capture its virulence.
A desperately frightened establishment is trying to stave off a revolt that began with the reaction to the health care bill and continued with the stunning 2010 midterm elections. To understand the dynamics of revolt and counter revolution, where better to turn than the experts? Here is guidance from “the official website for Revolution newspaper, voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA“:
“To be clear, then, counter-revolution means active opposition to revolution, with the intent to destroy the revolution, revolutionary group, or individual.
“Those serious about making revolution must set and insist on standards for the revolutionary movement that favor revolution and oppose all forms of counter-revolution.
“There is a very important distinction that must be made between struggle, even sharp struggle, carried out in a principled way over differences in line and approach as opposed to wrecking activity which is objectively counter-revolutionary. Carrying out principled struggle is very different from efforts centered on spreading lies, innuendos, provocations which not only do not bring clarity but are designed to spread confusion and derail revolution…”

Thus from about the 1860s, Russia was shepherded into a European-style socio-political revolutionary mindset that paved the way for the actual revolution in 1917.But as with all revolutions, unexpected consequences set in. In retrospect, the revolutionaries should have seen it coming. Older Russians, even those sympathetic to the revolution, always had a disdain for the French and their moral depravity, as evidenced in the works of authors like Tolstoy and Turgenev.
Very shortly after the revolution, this titillating sexual apéritif that had provided a kind of euphorigenic drug, numbing the masses to the otherwise less-palatable realities the blood baths and internecine warfare that led to the murder of thousands, including the czar and his family, was quickly swept away, supplanted by a rigid totalitarianism intolerant of the young idealists and their romantic notions of free love and Parisian-like communes.
Anyone nourishing hopes of restoring the cherished libertinism was crushed. Some went to prison, others were murdered, others simply disappeared…
