Mamdouh Habbashi, an activist and one of the founding members of the Egyptian Socialist Party discusses with Newsclick what the uprising of January 2011 achieved and how much more is left for it to be called a revolution. He discusses the role of the Military Council and Muslim Brotherhood, which has tried to snatch the gains of the January movement and take it in a different direction. His analysis sounds prescient in view of the events currently unfolding in Tahrir square.

Cleverly, the Washington establishment seeks to reorder events so that it can take credit for things it did not do and pass on the blame for things it did do. President Barack Obama not only wants to share the Arab Spring's glory but, with the Group of Eight (G8) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), wants to help shape its aftermath. On the other hand, Obama seeks to avert his eyes from the mess of Afghanistan and pay less heed to the desperate rants from President Hamid Karzai about the manufactured futility of his country.
