"Politics is the game of pretension, fear and hatred, and like Egypt millions are recruited in secret police establishments to watch the herd and keep the authoritarian rulers in palaces. This has been the blueprint of the US led Western collaborative relationships with the tyrannical rulers of the Arab Middle East. Now the blueprint is shattered, the Western think-tanks could not have imagined seeing it happened in their lifetime. They were all egomaniacs who cherished the sensation of power and cruelty to enjoy good life. But recent developments make us think what was unthinkable, that when a people want to strive for their rights and freedom, despite many difficult hurdles and mountains of obstacles, nobody can stop the process of change and freedom from oppression."
