Egypt Revolution Exposes U.S. Corporate Welfare Scheme of Military ‘Foreign Aid’
By Ernest A. Canning
Revolution threatens Egypt’s authoritarian regime, U.S. Empire…
“The problems the protesters are trying to address are extremely deep-seatedÅ Egypt and other countries of
the region have just been through a neoliberal period which have led toÅ high concentrations of extreme wealth and privilege, tremendous impoverishment and dismay for most of the population.” Noam Chomsky, 2/2/11
As more than a million protesters are said to have “flooded into central Cairo” this week, demanding an end
to Hosni Mubarak’s authoritarian rule, William Hartung, the director of the Arms and Security Initiative at
the New America Foundation and author of Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex, explained a little understood fact about the “tens of billions of dollars” in US military aid used to prop up the authoritarian Mubarak regime.
