By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The United States (US) government, considered by the world as being the biggest threat to peace, has concluded a 2 day virtual summit on democracy. The USG is clearly a plutocracy, but uses democracy to try to maintain its hegemony. Click on the following link for more: https://youtu.be/MJitC2Bg_9g
The International Criminal Court (ICC) has been wanting to investigate US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan, but the USG has hindered the investigation by sanctioning the ICC.
Democracy should be measured by the satisfaction of her citizens. Just last year, US citizens staged an insurrection in Washington DC. The US is the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic. And non-whites can’t breathe! Does that sound like US citizens are happy with their democracy?
The USG invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony 123 years ago. The USG has never complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism. The USG has also ignored 40 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
And yet, as a prelude to this summit, President Biden said in February 2021, “Democracy doesn’t happen by accident. We have to defend it, fight for it, strengthen it, and renew it.” It is obvious that, for the USG, Puerto Ricans isn’t worthy of democracy!
Those countries involved in the summit should have boycotted it. But being that they didn’t, the people must engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with international law.
There is no place for double standards, if we want justice. And, justice is what makes peace! https://todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
