Most recently in the American press, interesting materials that reveal some of the secret springs of "color revolutions", including in Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen and other Arab countries.
So in the article, "Groups in the United States contributed to the development of the Arab revolts" from April 14, 2011, the newspaper "New York Times" points directly to the source of training "field commanders" Arab "revolution" that teach ways to organize cells of the opposition, the use of social network "Twitter" and "Facebook", and mobile communications to organize mass protests and street demonstrations.
Among the recipients of targeted financial assistance of U.S. government agencies including such organizations as the "April 6 Youth Movement" in Egypt, Bahrain, "Center for Human Rights", as well as various proplachennymi activists like Ms. Entsar Kadhim — the leader of the youth opposition movement in Yemen. All of them received funding and training under the International Republican Institute, the National Institute for the Democratic Party, and quite well-known in the former Soviet organization "Freedom House." All these organizations operate under the names of non-profit organizations advocating for the observance of "human rights", but in fact directly funded by the U.S. government to conduct subversive activities against countries with which the United States is the way diplomatic relations and the Pentagon continues to provide huge financial aid advisers and weapons
This double game Washington has long been an irritant in bilateral relations with the pro-US Arab regimes, as evidenced by the declassified U.S. diplomatic dispatches on the site "Wikileaks".
Institutions of the Republican and Democratic parties remain fairly amorphous relationship with the relevant structures of both U.S. political parties. They were created by Congress and are financed through the "National Endowment for Democracy." Recall that the "Fund" was established in 1983 by the Reagan administration to contribute to the collapse of socialism in Eastern Europe and subversion against the USSR. "The National Endowment for Democracy" receives annually $ 100 million from the U.S. Congress. The organization "Freedom House" — the same tender udder, which oversees the State Department of the United States, from funds which it has covered the lion's share of their needs.

Mass media United States and other Western countries presented in full "Arab Revolution" as a "massive popular demonstrations" against the "undemocratic Arab regimes." There is some truth, but not the whole truth. Spontaneous popular protests skillfully channeled and directed "superintendents" of "color revolutions" have been trained in the U.S. and other Western countries. Stephen McInerney, executive director of the research group of so-called "Project Democracy in the Middle East", based in Washington, explicitly states that although his organization does not provide financial support to initiate protests, but only "contributed to the development of skills and networking techniques" in opposition activists.
Who and how to pass the organizational experience of the future, "HR color revolutions"? It sheds light on a press release from the U.S. State Department November 18, 2008. The press release refers to a 3-day seminar in New York from 3 to 5 December 2008 with the participation of the following companies and organizations: "Facebook", "Google", "YouTube's." "MTV", "Haukast", Columbia Law School, the U.S. State Department and the organization of "Access 360 Media." At a seminar in New York leaders of 17 organizations from 15 countries of the world under the guidance of experts in networking should work out practical ways to use network resources "in order to gain the youth with the most modern techniques of network skills to violence and oppression."
Visitors can get acquainted with the detailed schedule of the workshop, staff "students" and "teachers" here.
Note that the result of this "Youth Summit" was the development of a manual eloquently titled "Building social movements for change: field manual» [Creating Grassroots Movements for Change: A Field Manual].
Very revealing were the names of practical training. To name just a few: "How to create transnational social movements with new technologies," "How to use new mobile technology," "How to ensure safety of the team."
But that said Basham Fathi, founder of the youth movement, which has taken an active part in the events in Egypt: "We have learned how to organize and develop the coalition. This helped us in the revolution. "
We note in passing that Ms. Entsar Kadhim, already above upominavschayasya leader of the youth opposition movement in Yemen, received training on the job — just in Yemen with American instructors.
Such is the "natural" and "popular uprising."
