> Voice of Russia
> July 9, 2013
> The U.S. has a role with every faction or group in Egypt - Rozoff
> Recorded on July 6, 2013
> Audio at URL above
> Leaders of the Otpor! movement which helped destroy the former
> Yugoslavia are active in Egypt training radical youth of the CANVAS
> movement. Both groups are funded by NGOs, the U.S. State Department and
> the CIA and their sole purpose is to overthrow and topple governments.
> After what can be called a military coup d'etat in Egypt, the U.S.
> has been quiet because they are also supporters of the Egyptian
> military. Voice of Russia regular contributor Rick Rozoff spoke about
> these issues and more in this exclusive interview with the Voice of
> Russia's John Robles.
> This is John Robles speaking to Rick Rozoff, the owner and manager of
> the Stop Nato website and international mailing list.
> Robles: Hello, Sir, how are you this afternoon?
> Rozoff: I'm very good, John. Thanks again for the invitation to be
> with you.
> Robles: Nice to be speaking with you again. Can you tell us a little
> bit about what's going on, in your opinion, in Egypt and about some of
> the U.S. links to some of the candidates, former candidates, etc?
> Rozoff: It's still a situation in progress, and we are talking about
> a series of events that really culminated in what can only be
> characterized as a military coup d'etat two days ago, at least our
> time here, which would have been Independence Day in the United States,
> aptly enough I suppose, right? July Fourth.
> What we do know for a fact is that the government elected roughly a
> year ago in a runoff election headed by the Freedom and Justice Party,
> which is the political front of the Muslim Brotherhood, and their
> candidate, Mohamed Morsi, was removed and that in its stead an interim
> government administered by the military is in control, again, as was
> the case two years ago.
> Robles: He was backed by the U.S., but he was a fundamentalist
> Islamist which I think was a problem he had in more or less secular
> Egypt. What's your opinion on that angle?
> Rozoff: That's correct that Egypt has been a secular parliamentary
> democracy since Abdel Nasser came to power in the early 1950s, and not
> only secular but tolerant of religious minorities, including a fairly
> substantial Coptic Christian minority, as well as non-believers.
> The government up until fairly recently at least passed the litmus
> test for being a secular parliamentary democracy, even if they
> violated the basic tenets of that democracy, with leaders for life:
> Hosni Mubarak for 30 years, for example. Nevertheless, compared to the
> attempt to install a government two years ago or a year ago rather,
> that in many ways took on the aspects of a theocracy, with a religious
> tinge, given the fact that the political party in control until
> Thursday was the electoral manifestation of the Muslim Brotherhood.
> Certainly, as you are suggesting, those sectors of Egyptian society
> that were accustomed to secular rule would certainly be upset, I am
> certain, to see what they may have seen as the beginning of the process
> of an increased religious restructuring in society, including,
> possibly, laws modeled after religious requirements and such like.
> Unquestionably that was a factor in the protest that led up to the coup
> on Thursday.
> However we do have to recall the original Tahrir Square activities of
> early 2011 and recall the color revolution technique that the United
> States and its allies, with the United States in the first place, has
> employed over the last 13 years or so, starting in Yugoslavia in 2000
> and later in Ukraine, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon - successfully - and
> in Moldova, arguably, and unsuccessfully in a number of other
> And what that includes, I mean we've talked about this a bit before,
> John, is the whole political technology of generating so-called flash
> mobs that congregate in large numbers instantaneously without
> government detection in city squares, organized through so-called
> social media like Facebook and Twitter with a host (really an army) of
> US-funded so-called non-governmental organizations that seem to have
> unlimited financial assets, largesse that they can distribute amongst
> maybe thrill-seeking or fun-loving young people, including handing out
> $200 and $300 smart phones and have them set up.
> This is something that now recently retired Secretary of State,
> Hillary Clinton, boasted about, we've talked about before on your
> program, which is that the State Department was going to "batter down
> firewalls and spread the voice of freedom" to Russia, China, India,
> Iran and other countries, using the very social media we're talking
> about, Facebook and Twitter in the first place.
> Robles: According to the U.S. that is what happened in Egypt!
> Rozoff: Yes. We do have to recall with the overthrow of Mubarak two
> years ago, that for over a year there was a military junta, again, and
> that during that period of time that something in the neighborhood of
> 36,000 people had been arrested under security laws, that is more than
> over the entire 30 years of the Mubarak administration, and that was
> quite all right with the United States: the champion of human rights
> around the world had no problem whatsoever with the military junta in
> Cairo at that time as it evidently doesn't have now.
> The very fact that the U.S. ambassador in Cairo has refused to
> characterize what is clearly a military takeover as a military
> takeover, because to do so would run afoul of American law that
> disallows the continuation of military support to any country where
> there has been a coup d'etat, even though the African Union has
> suspended Egypt's membership in the African Union because of the
> extra-constitutional nature of the events of two days ago.
> Robles: Don't you think that stopped a massive amount of bloodshed?
> Rozoff: There is a line by the Irish writer, poet, dramatist Oscar
> Wilde which says because one side is wrong doesn't necessarily mean
> the other side is right.
> And I think frequently in a situation like this, we have to also keep
> in mind that the government of Morsi had expelled a good number of
> so-called NGO figures, Americans, which were instrumental in the
> overthrow of Mubarak and then quite clearly could be - and this is
> something we could only speculate about as we don't eavesdrop on
> Langley, Virginia, the Central Intelligence headquarters, the way they
> eavesdrop or the National Security Agency eavesdrops on everything else
> and everyone else - but I think we are safe in assuming that the US
> wants a finger in every pie and a whole lot of pokers in the fire, and
> that they've got contacts inside government and opposition, and the
> new generation of opposition, and they can generate, or exploit or
> assist opposition groups at will.
> Now another thing that one has to recall is when the so-called Arab
> Spring began in Tunisia at the very beginning of 2011 and quickly
> spread to Egypt, and thereafter led to NATO and US Africa CommandâEURTMs
> assault against Libya and the overthrowing of the government after
> almost 30,000 air flights over the nation by NATO, that one of the
> groups involved in the opposition inside Egypt is something called the
> April 6th Youth Movement, which quite openly - I invite your listeners
> to go to YouTube and type it in, it has the word revolution in it - it
> is a documentary put out by what is now know by the acronym of CANVAS
> but what was formerly known as Otpor! in Serbia, in Belgrade. These are
> people funded by the US State Department, unquestionably by the CIA, by
> a number of NGOs, to overthrow the government in Yugoslavia in the
> autumn of 2000, that is the government of President Slobodan
> MiloÅ¡eviÄ, and it became the prototype for training the youth brigades
> for the so-called Orange Revolution in Ukraine and earlier the Rose
> Revolution in Georgia, and all the subsequent ones.
> In this documentary youâEURTMll see Popovic and Marovic, the two
> leaders of CANVAS, openly bragging and showing videos of themselves
> instructing the Egyptian youth on how to overthrow a government, with
> these training sessions occurring both in Belgrade and in Cairo. So we
> know that the US has a role in most every faction or every group active
> in Egypt.
> You were listening to an interview in progress with Rick Rozoff the
> owner and manager of the Stop NATO website and mailing list. You can
> find part 2 on our website at English.ruvr.ru. Thanks for listening and
> we wish you the best.
