It seems all too familiar. A country rich with natural resources, strategic military location, enormous economic potential, all controlled by a ruthless dictator, who shares its nation's wealth with only a few chosen individuals and who for decades has been supported by the Untied States, awakens one morning to say, "Enough is enough." "No longer will we allow things to continue how they have." The human rights issues that have been ignored year after year by countries benefiting from their resources can no longer go on. Democracy, true Democracy, takes a stand. Those without, oppose those with. Those that have been kept in line with a bludgeon stand up and fight back. The people gather together and unite to speak their minds and decide to make a change. They’re not asking for change ... they're demanding change. They're exemplifying what a true democratic society is capable of.
The response to this roar of the bewildered herd is the same as usual. The powers that be, stand ground. The supporting nations keep a close eye to see if the ones in power can control the situation. If the democracy can be controlled, then it's business as usual. If not, the process of distancing themselves from this horrible regime begins.
A few years ago, President Barrack Obama said that the president of Egypt is a good man and is in support of him and his cabinet. Now that the people are taking back their land, their rights, and their power, he will soon begin to brand the president of Egypt as villainous. After this, a democratic vote will take place and their constitution will be changed to include a more equal distribution of the nation's wealth. This will in turn effect the income of the few mega wealthy families that have been pinching its people for all they're worth. These families have great wealth and can afford to help fight off the democratic movement. The two sides will clash as they have before, Venezuela being a good example, allowing the military to engage to keep control and peace. The military, however, will take sides with those who pay their check. A Mohawk Valley formula is put into place. Minds must now be persuaded to think that uprising and fighting for your individual human rights is wrong. The super powers will stand by and hope for a victory by the military and by the current administration.
This, however, will most likely no longer be the outcome for these types of repeating situations. A new elected president will come into power, one that will choose not to allow big companies to exploit their lands and forget about their people. This leader will be made out to be a villain, a socialist, a terrorist and a dictator. Countries that once benefited greatly from this land will no longer be welcomed as they once were. So a military offense will be created to take back the land through force. So the process of putting another leader in charge that will grant us favors begins.... again. This has been the way things have gone for decades.
