The Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Sergei Lavrov has called on the United States to face responsibility for those they brought to power in Kiev instead of giving Russia ultimatums and making false accusations against Moscow. This call by Foreign Minister Lavrov and Moscow, while made in the language of diplomacy and a call to simply do what the rest of the world which abides by international law and standards, may be a sign that the days of US impunity and illegality on the international stage may finally be coming to an end.
During a press conference with the Foreign Minister of Mozambique, Oldemiro Baloi on Monday after a meeting to lay out the framework for deepening cooperation Foreign Minister Lavrov stated: “Before giving us ultimatums, demanding that we fulfill demands within two or three days with the threat of sanctions, we would urgently call on our American partners to fully accept responsibility for those who they brought to power.”
Against the backdrop of the press conference after the meeting where Russia is obviously expanding cooperation and simply doing business with yet another country on the basis of mutual respect, the call for responsibility make recent US statements about Russia being isolated as a pariah nation all that more ridiculous.
Mr. Lavrov summed up the meeting as follows: “Business contacts between Russia and Mozambique have become more active of late. “Favorable prerequisites are taking shape for giving greater scope to trade-and-economic, investment, humanitarian and other fields. Promising areas of cooperation include geological prospecting, mining, ferrous metallurgy, petrochemistry, agriculture, fishery, energy and infrastructure projects, education, and personnel training”.
As with recent meetings with the People’s Republic of China, Russia is obviously continuing to do what it does best, build peaceful partnerships and relationships between nations based on trust, mutual respect and in most importantly transparently and within the framework of international law and respected standards.
Despite the recent ridiculous sanctimonious statements by US propaganda tools in recent days, such as this one which appeared in the Boston Globe: “The (US) administration’s priority is to hold together an international consensus against Russia, including even China…” Russia continues to build mutually beneficial partnerships with countries outside of the sphere of the Yankee dictator across the pond(s).
Mr. Lavrov recently told Sergei Brilev in an interview on Russia’s News on Saturday a weekly program on Vesti that: “China is a very close partner for Russia and contacts with it show that it understands Russia’s legitimate interests and that both countries have identical views on the causes of the current crisis in Ukraine.”
“The Chinese are our very close partners. This is stated in our joint documents. We have relations of strategic and multifaceted cooperation. They are stated this way. All of China’s practical steps confirm its commitment to the principles the two countries have agreed to”.
Vesti reported: If the Americans had made attempts at the top level to put pressure on China to make it revise its economic agreements with Russia, “the degree of naiveté or impertinence simply goes over the top”, the minister said. “I would even say that it’s unforgiveable for professionals who prepare such negotiations not to understand the essence of the Chinese policy and character.”
Unfortunately understanding the people or countries of the world is not something Washington have had any inclination to attempt to do but soon they may be forced to reassess their caveman strategy of projection of hegemony by force as the world has quite imply had enough.
The US/NATO push to the East is going to be the downfall of the American Empire and the attempted takeover of Ukraine is going to be the straw that finally breaks the camel’s back. This is good and as it should be. The world is a multi-polar place and multi-polarity is natural, healthy and above all the true state the world should be in.
The world has learned that culturally, diplomatically, intellectually and economically the US has nothing to offer other than death, killing, endless war, a knuckle dragging godless culture and endless conditions that subvert sovereignty in exchange for fictitious economic gains based on a currency that is not worth the paper it is printed on.
Hence countries who wish to conduct serious, professional negotiations based on the principles of multi-polarity, mutual respect and most importantly mutual benefit are more and more turning to Russia which steadfastly has pursued a foreign policy stance of rule-of-law, respect-for-sovereignty and non-interference.
These policies followed by the Russian Government, the Russian Federation and its leaders once again is in stark contrast to the Neanderthal barrel-of-a-gun (be it the literal guns of NATO or the economic guns of the IMF) foreign policy relationships that the US “hegemon” has been imposing on the world which is weary of US grandstanding, US wars and US illegality.
After decades of bashing around the world, committing acts of aggressive war, maintaining illegal secret torture prisons, conducting illegal mass surveillance, subverting governments, conducting extra-judicial executions, organizing coups, killing leaders and destabilizing governments, it may be that finally a day of reckoning for the US may be visible on the horizon.
This simple call by Mr. Lavrov for the US to take responsibility for the Nazis it brought to power in Ukraine should be a wake-up call by the victims of US foreign policy that the time is coming to force the US empire to answer for its crimes. From Bhopal to Abu-Ghraib, from Guantanamo to Venezuela, from Iraq/Libya/Afghanistan/Syria/Lebanon to North Korea/Sudan/Serbia the world has suffered and lost millions of its people to US wars, aggression and its reckless attempts at resource grabs and establishment of a world subservient to its hegemony.
Every move America makes in Ukraine is known, documented, watched and has been exposed. The covert takeover of Ukraine by the CIA is no longer a secret. They have been exposed and the lights are shining in all of their dark corners.
Crimes against humanity, aggressive war, torture, indefinite detention, extra-judicial execution, arbitrary detention, destabilization of countries, genocide, installing of governments, subversion of populations, theft of resources, manipulation of markets, massive surveillance and incursions of sovereignty maybe the life work of secret departments of the CIA and standard practices for the US but they are all crimes and the criminals should be made to answer.
I leave you (once again) for the time being dear reader with the following list of countries where the US has organized coup d’états, supported revolutions, overthrown governments, invaded, annexed, supported groups or forces who overthrew or attempted to overthrow governments or outright executed the leaders.
Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Congo, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Uruguay, USSR, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yemen, Yugoslavia and Zaire (Congo).
What they have done and are doing to Native Americans might also be added to the list and as the genocide of the indigenous peoples continues and is the foundation of endemic “American” racism and “exceptionalism”.
