Since the 1990’s, the United States’ (US) government has thought that it is a brilliant idea to make Ukraine a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) member state.
This despite the fact that the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics ceased to exist by then. The US’ great idea, however, has backfired in so many ways! Please click on the following link for the latest blowback: https://youtu.be/ybRYaWIUEQg
The US dismissed the Russian Federation’s complaint that making Ukraine a NATO member state would pose an existential threat to her security. But now suddenly, it is NATO itself that feels that the Wagner Private Military Company in Belarus poses a threat to NATO!
Moreover, US imperialism has violated Puerto Ricans human rights for the past 125 years. The US has ignored 42 United Nations resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. Real democracies do not have the right to violate the rule of law! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
The US is headed down a very slippery road in which she will inevitably lose her hegemony. That is great news for all those who want democracy and the protection of human rights.
Democracies are never outlaw states.
