Egypt considering violating peace treaty with Israel

Hero general: Obama following Castro's plan

Retired Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, a decorated former Delta Force commander, U.S. deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence and Purple Heart recipient, explained in the video a six-step plan used by revolutionaries to bring about Marxism elsewhere and drew parallels to Obama’s actions in the U.S.
Boykin’s warning resounds eerily today in particular, as the nation is reeling from the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold a massive federal overhaul of health care and on the anniversary of Obama’s pledge to establish a “national civilian security force” – two events Boykin warned were markers of a “Marxist insurgency” in other nations.

'The things done in every Marxist insurgency are being done in America today'

( I wonder what the general would think if he compared the cycles of events in the UK over the centuries to current alarmism over social media and the proliferation of domestic spying - plus patterns of economic downturns and profit taking by the Establishment. The U.S. thinks it escaped domination by foreign corporations itself...while continuing the model. Antivirus, anyone ? )
