Donald Trump should change aggressive US foreign policy for a peaceful coexistence with all nations.
Posted on November 22nd, 2016
In the past the USA Presidential elections, to elect either a Republican or a Democratic President did not make a great difference . The State Department rolled out its self same foreign policy which was primarily protectionist safe guarding America’s own interest. It made no difference towards developing countries.
The developing countries were considered a security threat to America, if they were to adopt a socialist program of development supported by China and Russia. Hence the American State Department interfered into the internal affaires of developing countries to dictate how they should run their countries and what type of governments they should have, threatening them with conditions they would impose if they were to qualify for World Bank or IMF loans
Those developing countries that dare challenge the dictates of USA, would be victims of USA State Department’s foreign policy of regime change. This was done either by using CIA Agents or more slyly winning over local politicians willing to sell their country for a “fistful” of Dollars. It is worst than the NATO bombardments which turned countries to rubble, because regime change put the people in complete confusion and disarray.
USA cannot propose to developing countries, any other system of government other than their own. USA took over the great land mass of America from its indigenous people decimating, disabling or driving them away from fertile land to infertile distant borderlands, and built their American homeland asserting their white American rule over the land they occupied. They also saw to it that no neighbouring country could have a system of government different from theirs. An extension of the Monroe Doctrine…..
The word socialism which is anathema to American politics, was not pronounced during any of their Presidential elections. The Americans know of no other political system of government other than their own American Capitalist system. And USA imposes it on all developing countries (after a US sponsored regime change) without allowing them to follow any other system under threat of trade embargoes, as they did to Cuba, Iran and Russia for allowing the Russian people of Crimea to be a part of their motherland-Russia.
But today USA has a new President elect Donald Trump. He was painted an immoral demon going against all accepted American Norms and its decadent political System. Donald Trump went on his election campaign openly stating what he stands for and not hiding any thing to steal votes. He even stated his willingness to work with Vladimir Putin the President of Russia, “I think I’d be able to work with him”said Donald Trump. He was elected with a large majority of votes according to the American electoral system.
A certain number of American people appears to be up in arms against him, because he is an unknown entity, quite different from what they had been used to before. But to a country and a people that had known only one system of government and one type of administration, there is the fear of what would the change mean to their proud place as citizens of a great country that gives leadership to the world. Hence some of them have gone out manifesting against President elect Donald Trump.
Strangely though these demonstrators against the 45th USA President Donald Trump did not manifest against atrocities committed by USA armed forces against Iraq of Sadam Hussain , Libya of Colonel Gaddafi , bombardment of border villages in Pakistan killing innumerable numbers of civilians in search of Al Qaeda terrorists, and arming anti government forces, in Syria to murder or chase away Bachar el Assad from Syria.
USA built its leadership , becoming a “Policeman of the world” by indiscriminate use of its Armed Forces against other countries with political leaders who do not blindly follow American dictates. USA asserted its world leadership, through its aggressive foreign policy planned and executed by its State Department, and its determination to make the world pliable to its command through fear of its known sinister murders of progressive world leaders by the agents of its CIA, its mighty military power complemented with the NATO forces of its Allies, and imposing sanctions.
The European Governments supported the aggressive policies of USA. We know EU stopped GSP plus to Sri Lanka following USA Resolutions against Sri Lanka for violation of human rights in the course of elimination of terrorism, and refused to by fish from Sri Lanka imposing conditions before the sanctions are removed. This is how even the EU following US State Department acted against developing countries
There is no country in the World that has abused Human rights as USA. USA not only violates human rights in the world but uses human rights as a tool to change governments in developing countries, divide countries and communities, and to stop any progressive development programmes undertaken by those countries, by proposing their own solutions without any financial or technical support to carry out the solution they propose.
The USA State Department under John Kerry had spent 585 Million Dollars to change regimes in developing countries and to promote US State Departments version of democracy. An example is Sri Lanka after January,2015.
John Kerry says that the US State Department promotes democratic values because “ stable democracies are less likely to pose a threat to their neighbours or to the US.”
But all these seems likely to change under the 45th President Donald Trump of USA. He seems agreeable to end the cold war that continues to exist with Russia and even China.
President elect Donald Trump has to reconsider the American Foreign Policy, which had never been one of generosity, transparency, and country friendly. Even the UNO which was expected to be an independent International Organisation under its Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and its Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein became an extension of the US State Department. They punish Sri Lanka for the simple reason that its Armed Forces eliminated the most ruthless terrorism, begun by a group of young men from the minority Tamil Community.
IMF and the World Bank were controlled by the USA to assure its political control over developing nations. Hillary Clinton as the State Secretary is known to have asked the IMF to suspend loans to Sri Lanka, as Sri Lanka governments did not given into Hillary Clinton’s State Department, and the UK and French Foreign Ministers demand for a suspension of military operations against terrorism.
The US President elect Donald Trump appears to be a practical man, not bound by old American political traditions and usage to maintain the leadership of America by trying to be a “global bully ” controlling developing countries by intimidating , threatening them with sanctions, and raising false accusations of violation of human rights.
President elect Donald Trump has already contacted President Vladimir Putin of Russia, and the Chinese President Xi Jinping. That it self is a first step in bringing nations together without treating each other as competitors for world leadership. The European leaders who were aligned with the American Presidents of the past were all war mongers . They were trying to settle political problems using force, NATO bombardments, threat and imposing sanctions.
With the election of Donald Trump as the 45th US President The European leaders those in France, Spain, Portugal and Germany act as they have been orphaned, left on their own to settle terrorist problems affecting them.
These political tactics may have to be changed now, if the US Presdent elect decides once sworn in as thethe US President to settle differences in dialogue and discussion like civilised human beings. One cannot go by Donald Trump’s election campaign rhetoric, which will surely change approaching the problems as the President of America. He is not disposed towards war but for enemies of America he will take strong action. He had said that war in Syria needs to be seen differently and he said “If Russia and the United States got along well and went after ISIS, that would be good.”
Donald Trump’s alignment with Russia may expand the trend to European Countries. Mr. Francois Fillion the likely right wing Presidential candidate at the 2017 French Presidential elections says that he may agree to work with the Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.
US State Department under Hillary Clinton and John Kerry listened to the demands of the Tamil Diaspora to form its policy towards Sri Lanka. The Tamil Diaspora which financed and encouraged and militarised the LTTE terrorists wanted a separate Tamil State in Sri Lanka.
The US State Department in the demand made by the Tamil Diaspora saw the benefit that the USA could derive from helping the division of Sri Lanka, to check the advance of China and Russia to control the southern sea route. Therefore both Hillary Clinton and John Kerry as US Secretaries of State went all out to pacify the Tamils in Sri Lanka and create for them the means to develop as a separate entity and divide Sri Lanka to enable USA to set up an American Navel Force in the North.
When the terrorists in Sri Lanka were relentlessly taking toll of innocent lives and government of Sri Lanka decided to find a military solution to end the raging terrorism the US Ambassador to Sri Lanka Robert O Blake opposed the military solution. Hillary Clinton as the Secretary of the US State Department refused to accept the existence of terrorism in Sri Lanka, calling LTTE terrorists a liberating force. She accused Sri Lanka armed forces using rape as an arm against terrorism. After Sri Lanka Armed Forces eliminated terrorism, USA State Department accused Sri Lanka Armed Forces for war crimes.
After that the US State Department along with the UN and the UN High Commissioner for Human rights continued its attack the Armed Forces of Sri Lanka accusing it for violation of human rights and war crimes. Thereafter it set about a regime change to remove Sri Lanka’s most popular President Mahinda Rajapakse.
In this move to change regime, there are reasons to believe that the US State Department used its Ambassador in Sri Lanka Atul Keshup, and its Assistant Secretary of State Nisha Biswal , and the US Ambassador to UN Samantha Powers to encourage and strengthen the Tamil minority to stand against the Government and vote for the Presidential Candidate contesting against the sitting popular President Mahinda Rajapakse, promising the aid of USA and its allies for them to win their rights to set up a separate Province exclusively for Tamils.
This is to say that the US State Department had hitherto been carrying out action against developing nations to change popular governments to set up US friendly governments and divide the people.
It is now up to the US President elect Donald Trump as the 45th President of USA to stop the US State Department from interfering into internal affaires of Developing countries, and allow developing countries find their own way of development.
The world is exasperated by the hitherto followed US foreign policy. It is right that it follows protective policies for the development of USA, but its foreign policy should not be to harass the developing nations, change elected governments, interfere into internal affaires, divide communities, and impose development programmes on countries burdening people with taxes, provide conditional aid for development, help and arm rebels in developing countries to fight against elected governments.
While congratulating the President elect Donald Trump on his election as the 45th President of USA, we urge him to in the first instance demand the US State Department to accept all terrorists whether they carry out terrorism in USA, any country of the West, or terrorists in developing countries, as terrorists, and not take side with terrorists in developing countries calling them rebels, and arm and encourage them to fight against elected governments.
