MOVING TALES from HISTORY 2

President Abdel Nasser of Egypt was a true GENIUS.

He was more than able to play both sides against the middle when it came to financing and constructing his Dream Project, his LEGACY, The High Aswan Dam.

Imagine this:

He used AMERICAN know-how in the planning stages, and I fully believe that he intended for America to COMPLETE the project. But he ran into JOHN FOSTER DULLES and President Dwight EISENHOWER'S "CONTROLS"...Far too many for ANY President of any sovereign nation to submit to.

KRUSCHEV and the Russians needed an entry, a BASE of sorts in the Mid-East...Russia also needed the GRAIN and COTTON that Egypt would be able to produce in ABUNDANCE once the NILE'S waters were brought under control...

Nasser was able to exploit the spectre of COMMUNISM and America's absolute plan to CRUSH Communist aspirations all over the Earth, AGAINST America in order to achieve his ends.

RUSSIA was finally able to secure the ASWAN HIGH DAM project at a monetarily GREATER cost...

Nasser first NATIONALIZED the SUEZ CANAL, one of the most strategically important spots on the planet, knowing full well that France and England/America were afraid of a Russian Military response...

But, consider THIS:

A COMMUNIST COUNTRY completing a project that displaced 120,000 impovershed NUBIANS, the folks that BUILT the PYRAMIDS-in fact, "Displaced" is a euphemism for "DEPORTED" in this case....A COMMUNIST country entering into a CAPITALIST New Deal...

A COMMUNIST Country responsible for BURYING beneath the waves FOREVER thousands of years of HISTORY...

A Nation of INTELLECTUALS perfectly willing to DESTROY history for the sake of the GOOD WILL of the EGYPTIANS...And to steal a march on America and CAPITALISM...Using MONEY to defeat CAPITALISM....These were probably the first CRACKS in the COMMUNIST facade....

UNESCO was able to MOVE and rescue ABU SIMBEL and some of the monuments therein- they sit now ATOP Lake Nasser, at a cost of $40 million, mostly in DONATIONS from the USA and other countries....It took 4 years, from 1964-1968 for the move to be completed....

Didn't cost Egypt a CENT! Except for the BILLIONS of dollars in WEAPONS they had to pledge to purchase from RUSSIA in the future...

The RUSSIAN MONUMENT sits atop the DAM still, so MASSIVE that it can EASILY be seen from space...refer to the PHOTO...

The Russians were able to complete a proposed 20 year project in just TEN YEARS, a GREAT accomplishment DESPITE the Politics....

Hey, a GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT no matter WHAT! But, the HIGH ASWAN DAM came at a HIGH Environmental Cost, evils that continue to this day....Extreme Pollution, INSECTICIDES that were UNKNOWN before the NILE was DAMMED, large stagnant POOLS of MOSQUITO infested waters.....

The IDEA was to provide ELECTRICITY, at a PROFIT, but the High Aswan Dam produces so much electricity that it is to this day far TOO CHEAP to realize the hoped for profits that would help pay the Russians back...

The RUSSIANS are still receiving payments in GRAIN and COTTON! And the DAM was completed 40 years ago-!

The best laid plans of RICE and MEN, INDEED!
