Nothing exposes US—and western hypocrisy in general—better than their selective morality and outrage. Indiscretions of enemies are condemned but their own criminal conduct is conveniently ignored. Torture of US victims represents a glaring example of such hypocrisy.
The US and Israel, two outlaw regimes, continue to perpetrate war crimes by constantly attacking Syria and the hapless Palestinian people. Both countries, however, are currently convulsed in internal crises.
After the US’ humiliating defeat in Afghanistan, there was widespread belief that the Americans would leave Afghanistan alone. Far from it. They continue to meddle not only in Afghanistan by propping up discredited warlords, but also extending their mischief into Central Asia.
The US Empire and zionist Israel are based on theft of land and resources of others. Their latest robbery involves stealing Syria’s oil and Lebanon’s gas. This could easily escalate into war. Both sets of thieves need to be confronted to prevent their grand larceny.
Recent media reports suggest that the parties to the JCPOA are moving toward its revival. The US had unilaterally walked out of the deal, repudiating its own signature, and even imposed additional sanctions on Iran. We look at the various options.
Joe Biden will be heading to the Middle East later this month. He has made clear it is to secure Israel, meaning that he will push for Saudi recognition of the zionist entity. Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler, Mohammad bin Salman is desperate for rehabilitation following his involvement in the gruesome murder of Jamal Khashoggi that made him an international pariah.
America’s “help” to Ukraine is not so much aid as it is loans that have to be repaid. More critically, the US has used the conflict in Ukraine to crush Europe’s attempt to gain freedom from Uncle Sam’s deathly embrace. So much for US friendship.
The demise of the US-led unipolar world order is crumbling before our eyes. A multipolar world order is emerging. Muslims must strive to find their rightful place in this emerging new order since it is largely through their sacrifices that America’s military machine has been defeated.
While the US has been forced to agree to most of the reasonable demands of Islamic Iran, can the nuclear deal (officially known as the JCPOA) succeed and endure given America’s mindboggling duplicity and dishonesty?
The US-led NATO kept pushing its eastward expansion until Russian President Vladimir Putin ran out of patience. He has shown that he will not tolerate NATO forces and weapons on his border in Ukraine and insists on making Ukraine a “neutral” country a la Finland. He seems to be nearing his objectives.
That the US-centric world order is no more is self-evident. China and Russia have re-emerged to challenge US imperialism. Hitherto, US imperialist adventures were financed by petro-dollars. This fraud not only needs to be exposed but it will lead to the expulsion of US from Eurasia.
Despite its defeat in Afghanistan, the US has not given up on mischief. It is exerting pressure on Pakistan to provide overflight rights to carry out attacks in Afghanistan. Pakistan should resist any such attempts.
