U.S. Treason Against Allied reveal Dictator

WASHINGTON (AP) - Concerns over increased in the Arab world took note of how U.S. allies who have long backed dictator after the expulsion of these rulers.
Al-Jazeera's Arabic website published an article that list the former ally of Washington who appreciated when in power but discarded after their dismissal.
The article mentions the name of the former Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, as an explicit example of betrayal of the American allies on the dictator. Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter, has described Iran as "an island of stability" under the Shah, then leave the support for the monarchy. The U.S. even refused him entry to the treatment of cancer after he lost power after the 1979 uprising of the Iranian people.
One day ruler of the Philippines, Ferdinand Marcos, who had been brought to power by the U.S. in 1965, to repay the n by making the country as the representative of the United States in Southeast Asia. But this did not save him from the People Power Revolution, led by Corazon Aquino.
After the 1986 revolution Sudan, Nimeiri Jafaar dictator also rejected the state to gain political asylum in the United States. Sudan under Nimeiri allegedly allow the U.S. to bury nuclear waste in African countries and help the Jews migrated from Ethiopia to the occupied Palestinian territories.
Former Panamanian ruler Manuel Noriega, currently imprisoned in France, also helped strengthen American control over the country and the Panama Canal. But Washington then get rid of what is regarded as a burden by sending a military unit into Panama to arrest him and deliver Noriega to the U.S. prison officials.
In 2008, former U.S. President George W. Bush left the support for close ally of his Asia, the former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf, while the opposition has grown against a former general who has played an important role in Bush's war called the War Against Terror.
Recently, the dictator Tunisia Zine El Abidine Ben Ali has been faced with the same fate as various media sources claim that the U.S. suggest and arrange for an end to dictatorship which has been running for 23 years in this country.
After the expulsion of Ben Ali, former ruler of Egypt Hosni Mubarak had to retreat after 18 days of massive street protests. Mubarak also U.S. allies, to support Washington's policies, especially in relation to Israel and the blockade of the Gaza Strip.
In the past, pretty much seen that any demonstration in the Arab world will display the American flag burning as well as statues of U.S. presidents.
In the pro-democracy demonstrations in the streets of Cairo and elsewhere, a reference to the United States clearly does not exist, a sign of what some analysts refer to as "post-American Middle East" and a reduced U.S. influence and a much greater uncertainty about America's role there.
Because just like burning the flag is not part of the repertoire that exists today, demonstrators also did not bring the Statue of Liberty r model into their protest action, as practiced by Chinese activists at Tiananmen Square in 1989. Middle East activists say they avoid reference to the United States as a political role model for fear of alienating potential supporters, said Toufan Faisal, a democracy activist in Jordan veteran who has counseled young demonstrators in the Jordanian capital, Amman.
Americans have had their moments of the Middle East, not to mention when Obama took office in 2009, promising a new era in U.S. relations with the Muslim world. But the government's failure to maintain a viable peace process between Israel-Palestine or to persuade Israel to stop building settlements on land claimed by Palestinians have disappointed those hoping Obama will bring change, says Rami Khouri, director of the Fares Institute of Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut.
Another hopeful moment came in 2005, when U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice delivered a call to democratize the campus of American University in Cairo, only a few steps from the center of the revolt of Egypt is now happening in the town of Tahrir Square.
