Many countries are ruled by dictators or regimes that do not allow that common citizens have much influence. These regimes are hardly attacked by Western politicians. Of course not, in those countries the political servants of the Western 1% want an industry that favours the 1% and not the indigeneous population.
Factories are build to produce textiles and many other easy to make products we need. Salaries of the workers are very low and work conditions abominable. Only the local and the Western 1% get a lot of money. Production of goods for the local population is hardly developed.
When new forces in a country say they want to improve the life of the own people they are undermined or even removed by the Western 1%, sometimes with military power. Cruel military dictators may continue to rule a country in favour of the 1%. They are invited to spend their money in Western countries and are considered as allies. Mubarak was an excample but also the royal family of Saudi-Arabia is seen as an ally though they do not even allow women to drive a car and support fundamentalist forces elsewhere.
Dictators and other inhuman leaders are only removed when the indigenous people revolt. But mostly after such revolts a new dictatorship is formed as happened in Egypt where the silent background forces of the local 1% were never attacked and also not the supporting Western presence in Egypt.
Revolting people make everywhere the same big mistake. They do not attack the highest power, the 1%. Without removing the selfish and greedy top-leaders there cannot be any change. We should learn from the past and start to attack the 1% in our own country.
