By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The United States (US) government (USG) is always looking to go to war with somebody, because its Military Industrial War Complex must justify to US citizens its huge budget. That is why, after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, the USG invented the “War on Terror”. Click on the following link to watch an interesting video about it: https://youtu.be/mG5gBOIwSyo
Professor Ramón Grosfoguel has masterfully linked historical events, so that we can clearly understanding their significance, and know exactly where we are heading.
It is interesting that the USG called its new enemy the “War on Terror”, when it is the world that considers the USG as its biggest threat to peace!
The US is presently at risk of another civil war, based again on the same racism that she was founded upon in 1776.
Puerto Ricans are still suffering from the USG’s military invasion in 1898 that made Puerto Rico its colony. The USG has always looked upon Puerto Ricans as inferior for the past 123 years, which is why it has never wanted to make Puerto Rico a state of the Union.
The USG wants Puerto Rico as its colony forever. That is why it has never complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism. That is why it has ignored, thus far, 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. And that is why, all 9 million Puerto Ricans world-wide need to engage in permanent resistance to force the USG to do so. http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
We need to be on our own perpetual mode of resistance!
