Sovereignty is the right and power to govern oneself. Please click on the following link for a discussion on sovereignty: https://youtu.be/MBdIONT3LmQ
The United Nations’ (UN) member states are required to respect the sovereignty of all nations. Puerto Rico has the inalienable right to her sovereignty, but she lacks the power. Why?
The United States (US) has consistently refused to comply with 42 UN resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. The US, therefore, is willfully committing a crime against humanity! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
We have all witnessed, in the US’ war against the Russian Federation in Ukraine, how European nations’ sovereignties have been sacrificed for US interests. It is obvious how the national interests of the citizens of Europe have been seriously and undemocratically compromised!
The US’ 800 military bases around the world are not to promote democracy. They are, on the contrary, to promote US imperialism. And that is why repeated Gallup Polls show that the world considers the US as the biggest threat to peace!
Democracy is sovereignty!
