Save the world from US fascism
The political crucible that is being fomented by the US and her European Union allies in the eastern part of Europe is one of the worst experiences that the world ever wished for after the end of the Cold War. The US has always been at fault.
In Ukraine, the US is at fault for having ignited a “revolution” in a peaceful state. Having spent close to US$5 billion on a coup shows how important Ukraine is for US and its geo-political interests in Europe, which are aimed against the current Russian regime.
The Obama administration has employed a strategic interest in disarming Russia and turning it into a puppet state, a US resource appendage. But the unrest is something that will not end anytime soon unless the so-called mother state ‘dwells into recumbence’. As it stands, the aim is to get closer to Russia and disintegrate it.
The causes of wars are complex. In some instances, nations other than the US may have been responsible for more deaths, but if the involvement of the United States becomes a cause of a war or conflict, then the provocateur should be held accountable.
In other words, the world is the safest place and the wars that are happening would not have taken place if the US had not used the heavy hand of its power. The military and economic power of the United States is always questionable, and at one point destructive.
Former US Official Bradley Jones on April 7 said: “War in Ukraine could cause disaster worse than Chernobyl and Fukushima.”
And in the 21st century, weapons and arsenals of power are no longer a channel that one uses to assert their power, but there is need to use ideas.
Globally, the US military forces have been directly responsible for between 10 to 15 million deaths during the Korean and Vietnam Wars and the two Iraq wars.
The Korean War also includes Chinese deaths while the Vietnam War also includes fatalities in Cambodia and Laos.
The American public probably is not aware of these numbers and knows even less about the proxy wars for which the United States is also responsible. In the latter wars there were between nine and 14 million deaths in Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, East Timor, Guatemala, Indonesia, Pakistan and Sudan. In all these, the US is seen as a player that disturbs the peace.
Former US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice in 2009 revealed that her country planned, in 1945, “to dismantle communism in the next 45 years”, meaning the disintegration of the former USSR by 1990.
As the events turn, it seems the Cold War is back again with Russia and the West both seeking to exert an influence and neither side being one concerned with the well-being of Ukrainian citizens.
Will either side be willing to respect the result of the upcoming elections this month? The current government of Ukraine came to power unconstitutionally in a forced coup, and now easterners in Ukraine have been disgruntled.
People in eastern Ukraine have protested against the new government but have been labelled “militants and terrorists”.
However, their voices and right to protest should all be heard and upheld as the maiden protesters and the crisis should be resolved only through negotiations.
The world should say no to double standards like what the US is trying to do.
The United States, for the record, has been responsible since World War II for the deaths of between 20 and 30 million people in wars and conflicts scattered all over the world.
The country has caused these deaths through military action, proxy military forces, the provision of military supplies or advisors, or other ways, such as economic pressures.
John Kerry has been running around the globe saying: “You just don’t invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests.”
The hypocrisy of Kerry is also evident by realising the fact that he actually voted for the war in Iraq, something that seems comical.
The US literally went against what the United Nations voted for in this scenario yet there were no “sanctions”, nobody was talking about military options of how to save Iraq, or aid the Iraqis with lethal weapons.
This does not justify the Russian actions, but it goes to show you that the “international community” uses double standards all the time.
The US-government has created a dictatorship in Kiev which contains “fascists and neo Nazis” who openly have said they want to “kill all ethnic Russians, socialists and Jews”. This US sponsored dictatorship has destroyed the democracy in Ukraine, because they have forbidden other parties and have beaten candidates of other parties.
The people in the east of Ukraine want to restore democracy and a referendum yet the US backed government has sent tanks against its own population, protestors in the East.
For Russia, it is about protecting its population from the encroachments of the West who want to make them second class citizens. I
t is not Putin or Russia who started or invented the chaos. The United States ignited a revolution and provoked the collapse of a nation state. The Russian population appealed to President Putin for protection from the Ukrainian nationalists and western aggression. Putin had no choice but to protect them according to the Constitution of Russian Federation and his obligations as president.
American hypocrisy has long remained unchallenged. US President Barack Obama, a former law professor who should know better, has charged Vladimir Putin, his Russian counterpart, with violating Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, in breach of international law. It is time to grab the bull by the horns.
