US’ hocus pocus leadership

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


United States (US) secretary of defense said, “As the world considers the repercussions of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the brutal Hamas terrorist attack on Israel, an increasingly assertive China, and the disturbing aspirations of nations like Iran and North Korea, it considers also what the role of the US will be – and what its role must be is leadership.” Please click here for more:

The fact of the matter is that the US is isolated, because of its actions. That isolation is reflected in repeated Gallop Polls revealing that the world regards the US as the biggest threat to peace. Therefore, the world should follow the US, if it wants war.

A perfect example of the US’ threat to peace was the US’ lone vote in the United Nations (UN) Security Council’s resolution for a ceasefire in the artificial colonial settler Zionist state of Israel’s war crimes that include selective punishment, ethnic cleansing, and genocide. Not only did the US impede that resolution, but it has also been giving Israel unconditional support for it to continue its war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Another example of the US’ threat to peace is the US’ consistent refusal to comply with the almost unanimous annual UN demand to end its illegal economic blockade against Cuba.

And, yet another example of the US’ threat to peace is its continual refusal to comply with 42 UN resolutions to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.

Why should the world look for the leadership of the artificial settler colonial US that today has 38 million Americans living in poverty, while 8 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens? That’s not democracy. That’s plutocracy.

Those repercussions that the US secretary of defense spoke of are the direct result of US imperialism! Instead of reopening the Red Sea by stopping Israel from committing genocide against the Palestinians, the US decides to create a coalition of nations to stop the Houthis from blocking the Red Sea. The Houthis have said that they will reopen the Red Sea, when Israel stops its war crimes.

Democracy, therefore, is the People’s Republic of China, whom the US criticizes as not being a democracy, for having already eliminated her poverty since 2020, despite having 4 times the US’ population. China, objectively speaking, is the kind of leadership that the world needs!

US’ leadership is only imperialistic.

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
