"The supporters of the regime – and, standing behind them, the US government -- are waiting out the protesters, hoping they’ll get bored, frustrated, and be forced to return to 'normalcy' -- which, in Egypt, means a return to repression. The regimists hope to create the illusion of change without implementing any fundamental reform, keeping the apparatus of the state -- the political police, the state-controlled economy, and the office of the President -- intact and under the control of the usual suspects. In short, they hope to pull off in Cairo what the Obama-ites pulled off in Washington, D.C. -- phony 'change' in the service of Power." (02/07/11)
