The former US President, Barack Obama has visited Athens where he is speaking about democracy and the next generation of leaders. It goes without saying that he has chosen Greece because of the symbolism it carries – it is the birthplace of democracy, even though, in my view, the democracy that the British Empire has invented as a tool of controlling the world has nothing to do with some ancient Greek political ideology apart from the name only. Both democracy and republic are British political invention for disguising the worldwide British occupation.
In an interview with the British-Iranian CNN journalist, Christiane Amanpour, he was asked about, “how should a President deal with dictators,” implying that the role of the US Presidents is to defend democracy around the world.
I think it is important to define first what is meant by democracy in the context of the foreign policy of the USA. If by democracy is meant simply a political tool which was invented by the British Empire in order to rule the world, especially after the so-called imperial withdrawal, I agree with Christiane Amanpour that the USA is supposed to defend it. The USA and the British Empire benefit directly from democracy, or more precisely, Secularism. It is a trademark of the British occupation.
At the same time, democracy is not synonymous with justice, political fairness, or a better economic system. This is a misconception that masses have about the British democracy. People confuse the eloquent speeches of Barack Obama, the Hollywoodian movies, and the British propaganda, such as rule of law, check and balances, political freedom, freedom of speech, and judicial independence – beautiful and mesmerizing, but empty words, with the reality.
Therefore, the dictators around the world are not a threat to the British or American democracy. On the contrary, they are their biggest allies and friends. In a more technical sense, they are the political viceroys of the British Empire. The dictators of the 20th century, such as Benito Mussolini, Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot, Fidel Castro, Enver Hoxha, Saddam Hussain, Muammar Gaddafi, Josip Broz Tito, Slobodan Milosevic, Mustafa Kamal etc., as well as the current dictators or political puppets around the world are not in power despite the British Empire or the US Government; all such dictators of the past and present have been and continue to be in power because of the British Empire and the US Government.
In this regard, the US Government is not the solution. Asking Barack Obama about why the US Presidents are not doing enough to confront dictators and autocratic leaders is very misleading. The true questions should be, “why is the US Government putting in power such dictators and autocrats? Why does the US Government support around the world criminal and terrorist groups?”
Indeed, the US Government is not the solution to the problem. It is the problem itself.
