American Wars by Other Means
The United States of America has been a world power for almost a century. This century saw the highest level of technological progress but it was also the most brutal century in terms of wars, human deaths and suffering. The US wants to continue to hegemonize the world which means more violence around the world. After all, the US in its 244 years history has only seen peace for 16 years and it has remained at war for the rest of its history. Continued American hegemony means more death and suffering for the world. As John Mearsheimer said that America will do everything in its control not to let other countries rise without a fight, but ‘fighting’ a kinetic war will also destroy America itself.Therefore, from the American point of view there must be another way to achieve its goals. And that way is through sedition and deception against the people from countries where the administration doesn’t serve American interests. They accomplish that through lies and falsity that parade as knowledge to convince the gullible masses to cut the branch they are sitting on.
Thailand: The next Friend on Punishment Row
In the wake of this week’s events in Thailand the corporate media of the West claimed that Thai people are demanding democracy. This is really funny and obviously false. The whole world knows by now there is no democracy anywhere, and especially not in the West as commonly understood. It is the rule of special interests that do not have the best interest of people in mind. As long as Thailand was subservient to the American interests, they were a darling of Asia. Since the beginning of Pax Americana, the Thai kingdom became a useful pawn of America but now they want to return back to their historical norm and exercise their own rights on their own land. US history suggests that the US often asks its allies to go against their national interest, and if they don’t, they are punished. This is to suggest that the US is often the enemy of their allies. Just like the unrest in Thailand, Americans can be seen everywhere, and scenes that have been staged almost all over the world are once again played in Thailand. All kinds of familiar, uniform, orderly group actions, rich andaccurate “Black Storm” supplies seem to reflect the story behind the appearance of CIA in different identities in each color revolution in the past.
The Thai government wants to strengthen domestic economic construction and advocates the construction of the Kra Isthmus waterway, which has shaken the hegemony of the United States in the Asia-Pacific region. The US military and economic interests have been lost in Thailand. For this reason, some US politicians want to pull the Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha’s resignation, just to protect US interests in Southeast Asia and not hesitate to trap Thailand in turmoil without any concern on Thailand’s stability and the suffering of the Thai people.
The examples of Belarus, Ukraine, Syria, Libya, and Lebanon show that the more divided a society is, the more cracks and the larger space outsiders may use. This widens the gap, intensifies social unrest and war, causes people to be displaced, and leads to death and disaster. By understanding the color revolution, other countries must be avoided at all costs to become the next Thailand.
