The Arab Spring was not allowed to get very far before the Arab Counter-Revolution pounced, first on Libya, now on Syria, to reconfigure the region by military means and, thus, make it safe for the various members of the imperial club.

Belgrade, Serbia: Demonstration in solidarity with Libya in the capital of the former socialist state of Yugoslavia. NATO imperialists are bombing Libya in the same way they pounded Yugoslavia in 1999, forcing its break-up.
l’Affiche Rouge, the “Red Poster,” spread throughout Paris by the occupying Nazis after their capture of 24 members of the Manouchian Group, made up largely of immigrants who were members of the Communist partisan group, the FTP. The poster asked: “Liberators?” and, below photos of derailed trains, a bullet-riddled body, and an arms cache, answered: “Liberation! By the army of crime.” More importantly, and more to the Nazi’s point, were the ten photos placed within circles identifying members of the group and their “crimes.” “Alfonso — Spanish Red — 7 attacks” “Grzywacz — Polish Jew — 2 Attacks,” “Rayman — Polish Jew — 13 Attacks.” At the apex of the inverted triangle of photos, pointed to by an arrow, were the words: “Manouchian — Armenian — Chief of the Group — 56 Attacks 150 dead 800 Wounded.”
