Clearly as it has been repeated many times by so many that to avoid Western Imperialist designs one must do some basic safety steps to avoid a repetition of Western colonialism in Third World nations:
One must make sure that the Third World country's military have NO relationship with Western countries, especially with education, training and joint exercises. China and Russia can fill such requirements, since both countries do not have the arrogant criminal ambition to intervene in Third World nations, they are a safer bet. The USA used the Pentagon trained and armed Tunisian and Egyptian military to overthrow the former Arab dictators, Ben Ali and Hosni Mubarak. Both countries are NOW totally destabilized, and failing with Islamists on the rise.
There must be no relationship between the intelligence services of the West with those of the Third World. A lot of regimes have fallen when such relationships were developed, for example with the Shah of Iran's head of SAVAK worked with the West to topple his own master.
The same applies with the police forces of Third World Nations. One must look at history, and not lose sight of Colonial crimes and genocides perpetrated in many Third World nations by Western countries.
Finally of course the political and economic elite of the Third World country, and the issue of where they invest their wealth and where they send their children for education.
Both Tunisia and Egypt forgot these basic safety measures as they chased the rich nation's and their wealth....and now they are both suffering, AND in addition have emboldened the Western Imperialists to seek greater empires in North Africa and Africa generally (Maybe for its minerals).
Friendship with pro-active Western nations is not feasible EVER, and thus a safe polite distance of peaceful co-existence and mistrust must be sought. History should guide us to this fact.
There are those who will argue that many nations have prospered under American control and rule as defacto colonies, even with fixed elections. Countries such as Germany, Japan and South Korea.
In the case of Germany it is a Western country in Central Europe, and it is inconceivable that it would be allowed to slide to Third World standards in the midst of such Western wealth. One can also argue that even without American Marshal Plan assistance in the 1940's and 1950's, Germany would still be a successful rich country despite the Americans. It was a rich country before the Americans occupied it in 1945.
The same latter argument could be made in relation to Japan and South Korea. Japan was a modern industrialized country, with a huge modern navy before the Americans occupied the country in 1945.
In the case of the Philippines things have not gone so well.
Despite being ardent Catholic Christians of whom most speak good English, and an American colony since 1898, the country is in dire straights. 10 million skilled good Philippino scour the world looking to work abroad, and they send their money back to the country.
113 years of American control of the Philippines has not brought anything good for the country except corruption, instability and poverty. No visible progression in development over time......save for the abundance of Americanized strip bars, go-go dancers and whore houses.
The Philippines, Iraq and Afghanistan are the examples which Third World nations must study when they relate to Western pro-active powers. Studying history thus will help. Russian and Chinese military hardware and training is just as good as the Imperialist West, but the two countries are less dangerous.
THE NEW TUNISIA - AFTER THE CIA COUP by aangirfan.
The New Tunisia. In Tunisia, the CIA's Islamists are set for big election gains
After the 23 October 2011 elections in Tunisia, the Islamist Ennahda Party is expected to be the biggest party in the assembly. Already, Islamist Salafists have attacked cinemas and TV stations for showing material that is not sufficiently Islamist. Under Ben Ali, who was recently toppled by the CIA, tourists were welcomed, polygamy was outlawed, there were no forced marriages and men and women were equal in terms of rights. Ennahda is said to be behind the attacks by the Salafists. Ennahda's leader, Ghannouchi, describes the Salafists as "brothers." Ennahda is reported to have links to the CIA's Muslim Brotherhood.
The New Tunisia
The CIA's revolution in Tunisia has caused a massive downturn in Tunisia's economy. There are few tourists. There is massive unemployment. Tunisia and the other Arab Spring countries have all been hit hard economically.
(The Arab Spring upheaval cost $55bn - BBC.com)
"Their costs to GDP amount to $20.56bn while costs to public finance total $35.28bn. "These figures do not take into account losses to human life, infrastructure damage and business and foreign direct investment losses."

According to the UK government's Tunisia travel advice: "Political demonstrations and industrial protests still occur regularly... "Incidents of pick pocketing and bag snatching and petty theft are on the increase and you are advised to ensure that bags are kept close to your person at all times... "A number of fringe groups have sought to impose their interpretation of Islamic dress/ behaviour upon others through violence against individuals." Tunisia's military boss, General Ammar, with his CIA-Pentagon-NATO buddies.
No matter who wins the elections, the CIA-generals will remain in power. General Rachid Ammar is Chief of General Staff of the Tunisian military. Reportedly Ammar was part of the CIA plot to topple Ben Ali. Reportedly Ammar is part of the CIA plot to wreck Libya. According to "The political elite of the new Libya", by AA Bystrov (Imes – Original Russian): "The anti-Gaddafi TNC rebels met in the Hotel Tibesti in Tunisia... "The Chief of General Staff of the Tunisian armed forces, Rachid Ammar, was in charge of supplying arms and ammunition to the Libyan rebels... "Paris dictated to the Tunisian leadership through figures such as ... Dominique De Villepin."
Much has been achieved with this CIA agent, as he helped the USA overthrow his own government, and then worked against Gaddafi to overthrow his regime........and the destabilization of Egypt, and who knows Syria.
