Britain has a bad record with regard to Egypt – we’ve used and abused their people for decades. MI6 organised coup attempts, we invaded over the Suez canal and planned many attempts on Nasser’s life rather than accept the will of the Egyptian people.
What many people don’t know is that we also conspired with the Muslim Brotherhood many times – even though the Foreign Office knew the Brotherhood were no friends of the English, but because they calculated the Muslims were the lesser of two evils.
Now the Guardian has revealed much of the money stolen by Mubarak and his family and cronies was laundered through the City of London. And to add insult to injury, we’ve let them move it around with impunity – enabling the criminals to hide vast amounts from Egyptian investigators.
Also read Secret Affairs by Mark Curtis. Curtis’s book shows how the UK conspired with some of the most unsavoury regimes such as the Saudi Arabians and most feared terrorist groups in the world.
It’s almost funny the way the British state talks about law and order when they’ve had absolutely no respect for anything but power and riches for the past few centuries.
They have no shame…

A first-hand account of the US Navy Seal raid that killed contradicts previous accounts by administration officials, raising questions over whether he presented a clear threat when he was first fired upon.
Bin Laden apparently was hit in the head when he looked out of his bedroom door into the top-floor hallway of his compound as Seals rushed up a narrow stairwell in his direction, according to a former Navy Seal writing under the pseudonym Mark Owen in No Easy Day. The book is to be published next week by Penguin’s Dutton imprint.
I don’t believe OBL was ever killed in this made-up raid. Why would the US kill him if all the stories were true about OBL leading the al Qaeda network? Wouldn’t they want to torture him for all the information they could extract then kill him?
Read “Secret Affairs: Britain’s Collusion with Radical Islam” by Mark Curtis and see how both the UK and US created intelligence assets for decades to foil the legitimate aspirations of Middle Eastern folk for self-determination and tell me you believe anything about so-called terrorism…
