After Mubarak was removed from office, possibly the two most striking examples of the US/Zionist colonial structure remain Saudi Arabia and Jordan. These two have made a public declaration of their intention to work together to maintain their dictatorships that are accountable to the US rather than to the people they rule.
During talks in Jeddah, Jordan's King Abdullah II and Saudi King Abdullah discussed the 'latest Arab and regional developments and the political situation through which a number of Arab countries are passing,' according to a joint statement.Sympathizers with the US/Zionist colonial structure are recently telling a story that the US is trying to convince the governments that are accountable to it to transition to democracy, but the colonies are refusing, which proves that the colonies are independent.
The Jordanian head of state and the Saudi king expressed 'keenness on continuing consultations and coordination with a view to preserving security and stability in the region and boosting joint Arab action vis-a-vis various challenges,' said a statement published by the Petra news agency.
The US pressures its colonies in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan, Kuwait and others with real tangible consequences if they, for example, fund Hamas or cut intelligence cooperation with Israel. The US could pressure the governments that are aligned with it in the region to hold contested elections far more easily than it pressures them to cooperate with Israel. The US chooses not to use its leverage that way, exactly because the US is committed to maintaining a colonies over more than 100 million people in the Middle East rather than allow a threat to Israel's viability to emerge.
