Can We Talk?

Who Is Behind The Middle East Protests?

I would love to know who is behind all the upheaval in the Middle East.  I’d like to think it’s just Facebook “friends” of similar opinions talking to each other and plotting things.  But, somehow, I don’t buy that.  These coordinated protests are well organized and sophisticated, don’t you think?  I’d like to point my finger at the CIA but I think they’re far less clever than people give them credit for.  I mean, if they were smart they would have launched a covert attack on Afghanistan instead of bombing the crap out of the countryside, killing thousands of innocents along the way.  They just wanted one man, right?  Besides, I don’t think they could organize the insurgency of all the Middle East oil producing countries, all at the same time.

Naw, it’s got to be bigger and deeper.

There is talk of the protests being over lack of jobs.  How can that be when tens of thousands of foreigners are working the oil fields in Libya alone?  Obviously, they needed a lot more workers than were available in Libya.

If you have any ideas, I’d like to hear from you.
