My thoughts on the Egyptian military:

Author’s note:
This article has been written in light of the recent gruesome & shameful beating of several persons in Egypt, particularly one woman, who was not only beaten, but shamefully stripped publicly of her traditional Islamic-dress, exposing her private parts-The sad & horrible irony is that the ones who did this are Muslims, in a Muslims country. This is simply ridiculous!!! May Allah help the Muslims, because we are truly pitiful, Amen!!!

It’s bad enough that the history of modern Egyptian politics has been dominated by corrupt politicians. But, now, even the military are showing their true colors, of not having any regard for the sanctity of Human dignity. And, because they have the guns & martial authority, their oppression is left unchecked. Earlier in December, people were being beaten in the streets, which has not been unusual lately, unfortunately. But, then, someone caught on film, a very heinous beating & stripping of a woman in public, in broad daylight, by the same individuals who are supposed to ensure the safety of the people, not to use their authority to continue the legacy of tyranny that most Egyptians would die along with the power of Mubarak.

Truly, this is a very sad reality-The military has in fact not only continued where Mubarak left off, but they’re even more outlandish, as a result of the fact that there’s no governmental structure or bureaucracy which is holding people accountable. At present, the only personnel at the helm of the Egyptian government are the same military generals, whom are from the Mubarak old-guard, whom are also loyal to their troops & they to them. So, based upon these realities, it’s very safe to assume that nothing is going to be significantly done to see that due justice is served for the unnecessary violence unleashed against the recent victims of humiliation & brutality by the Egyptian military.

Of course, the international-community has had something to say about this. But, how can they put a stop to the abuses of a military that’s in control of a country which receives the most international U.S. foreign-aid in the world, with the exception of Israel? The irony, is that U.S.-aid has not been cut-off. Even while Mubarak was still in power, in spite of all of the known atrocities that he had personally co-signed, those foreign-aid checks kept rolling in.

This is something serious to think about. But, now, back to the military of Egypt. It’s very clear that the Egyptian military is being given a free-hand paint the town red, with the blood of their own people, quite literally, by the way. If the U.N. & U.S. really wanted to, they could’ve easily done the same thing that they’ve just finish doing in Libya, incite open rebellion & bomb the hell out of  this country. Why hasn’t that been done?!!!

It’s very obvious to me that the atrocities committed against Egypt’s people are deliberately being tolerated & accepted by the international community, to consolidate support & good-relations with the largest military in the Arab-World, to keep them at bay & prevent a revisit to the Egyptian-inspired Arab-Israeli conflicts/wars of the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s. And, because Egypt’s military is so massive, compared to the Israeli military, any incitement of a military still spells significant problems for both Israel as a nation & the U.S., which uses Israel, as a pitbull, against the keep the spaded & neutered Arab fat-cat rulers of the Middle-East in-check/under pressure.

However, the Egyptian military is not nearly as passive as the militaries of most of their regional neighbors. So, in light of that, in order to keep Israel safe & ensure that the level of stability that the U.S. & international-community requires is maintained, Egypt’s regime-indoctrinated military will continue to practice iron-curtain tactics, that are remnants of the Soviet Union’s iron fist, which America & her allies, past & present, have continually claimed to despise greatly, unless/until America decides that they want to invade, which I can clearly see Egypt being invaded by the U.S., depending upon who the Egyptian military decides to give governmental/bureaucratic allegiance to.
