Some might look at the title of this post and say, “Can’t you see what is going on, the people are protesting and wanting change in their government”.  While I would agree with this statement on a very basic level I also believe there are catalysts behind the scenes that helped start this whole upheaval in the first place besides “the people”!  This whole situation started in the small country of Tunisia with the toppling of the government.  Egypt was next, Yemen, Bahrain and now Libya with some uprisings in other countries in the region.  My question on all of this is; while all of a sudden has this occurred? For what reason would these changes be occurring at a rapid pace?  I mean look at Libya! Qadhafi has been in power for 30 years and ruled with an iron fist and in a matter of weeks is about to lose control of the country!

I believe these changes are occurring for economic reasons and what I mean by this is that the powers to be are wanting to create an European Union type organization in the North Africa, Middle East area.   Take a look at how things have played out of the last 50 years. The EU was formed and now is a formidable zone for commerce. Right now the North American Union is trying to be created which would include Canada, United States and Mexico.  South America and Latin America are headed in that same direction as well.  The Asian countries are also well on their way to an economic union so other than central and southern Africa the last region of the world for this to take place is in the middle east!   To further prove my point the United States and the European Union have not condemned what is going on!  We have supported Mubarak of Egypt for 30 years and pretty much threw him under the bus. Look at Libya, Qadhafi gave up his weapons of mass destruction and was welcomed by the west in the last few years and now he is getting the same treatment as Mubarak.

Also, this is why I have no concern the Middle East will be turned into an Islamic Caliphate because of the scenario I describe above as I believe there are forces at work that will not allow this to happen as it did in Iran 30 years ago.  This whole situation to me is about dividing the world into economic zones for the benefit of those that have money to make more of it.  Dividing the world into economic zones may or may not be a bad idea as long as it is shared with everybody.  The point of this post is that these changes in the middle east are not some great quest for freedom, but orchestrated changes for a larger purpose and most likely to enrich the very wealthy at the expense of the working people!  I just read realized what I posted makes me sound like a communist lol!! I really am not, I have realized the bigger governments get the less freedom we have and that is my main concern.
