Suddenly West Is Failing To Overthrow "Regimes"

It used to be done regularly and it worked: The West identified a country as its enemy, unleashed its professional propaganda against it, then administered a series of sanctions, starving and murdering children, the elderly and other vulnerable groups. If the country did not collapse within months or just couple of years, the bombing would begin. And the nation, totally shaken, in pain, and in disarray, would collapse like a house of cards, once the first NATO boots hit its ground.

Such scenarios were re-enacted, again and again, from Yugoslavia to Iraq.

But suddenly, something significant has happened. This horrific lawlessness, this chaos stopped; was deterred.

The West keeps using the same tactics, it tries to terrorize independent-minded countries, to frighten people into submission, to overthrow what it defines as 'regimes', but its power, its monstrously destructive power has all of a sudden become ineffective.

It hits, and the attacked nation shakes, screams, sheds blood, but keeps standing, keeps proudly erect.

What we are experiencing is a great moment in human history. Imperialism has not yet been defeated, but it is losing its global grip on power.

Now we have to clearly understand 'Why?', so we can continue our struggle, with even greater determination, with even greater effectiveness.

First of all, by now we know that the West cannot fight. It can spend trillions on 'defense', it can build nuclear bombs, 'smart missiles' and strategic warplanes. But it is too cowardly, too spoiled to risk the lives of its soldiers. It either kills remotely, or by using regional mercenaries. Whenever it becomes clear that the presence of its troops would be required, it backs up.

Secondly, it, the West, is totally horrified of the fact that there are now two super-powerful countries China and Russia which are unwilling to abandon their allies. Washington and London do all they can to smear Russia and to intimidate China. Russia is being provoked continuously: by propaganda, by military bases, sanctions and by new and newer bizarre mass media inventions that depict it as the villain in all imaginable circumstances. China has been provoked practically and insanely, 'on all fronts' - from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Tibet and the so-called 'Uyghur Issue', to trade.

Any strategy that could weaken these two countries, is applied. Yet, Russia and China do not crumble. They do not surrender. And they do not abandon their friends. Instead, they are building great railroads in Africa and Asia, they educate people from almost all poor and desperate countries, and stand by those who are being terrorized by both North America and Europe.

Thirdly, all the countries in the world are now clearly aware of what would happen to them, if they give up and get 'liberated' by the Western empire. Iraq, Honduras, Indonesia, Libya and Afghanistan, are the 'best' examples. Submitting themselves to the West, countries can only expect misery, absolute collapse and the ruthless extraction of their resources. The poorest country in Asia Afghanistan has totally collapsed under NATO occupation.

The suffering and pain of the Afghan and Iraqi people is very well known to the citizens of Iran and Venezuela. They are not giving up, because no matter how tough their life is under sanctions and the West-administered terror, they are well-aware of the fact that things could get worse, much worse, if their countries were to be occupied and governed by the Washington and London-injected maniacs.

And everyone knows the fate of the people living in Palestine or Golan Heights, places which have been overrun by the closest ally of the West in the Middle East, Israel.

*

Of course, there are other reasons why the West cannot get any of its adversaries to kneel.

They have now brought the UN and Amnesty International into the illegal invasion of Venezuela in order to have Maduro painted as committing crimes against humanity.

The United Nation's Chief of the Human Rights division, Michelle Bachelet did recent "research" on Venezuela interviewing several hundred individuals, most of whom don't live in the country, and one including Juan Guaido, the treasonous one who announced himself as interim president. Her report concluded that atrocities are evident calling Maduro a crime against humanity as thousands have died due to not having medication and/or food. Her report all but ignored the sanctions and blockades imposed by the United States as the cause of these shortages. Even fellow United Nations cohorts reject her report for the falsehoods of its conclusion.

I haven't seen any reports from Amnesty International but can only assume they are much of the same knowing they have been called in by the United States.

The reality is there are indeed crimes against humanity being committed but they are not done by Maduro, but by Trump and his band of criminals in the United States with Bachelet and the MSM being accomplices. It's time the truth be exposed on this matter and the innocent citizens of Venezuela be allowed to live a more peaceful life.

Thanks for this article.

Thanks for your time and efforts. We are finding out that no government is perfect. However, no government should be forced out by bombing(s) (e.g., Chile).

Western countries have supported corrupt leaders (e.g., Iraq) to do their dirty work, however, when these leaders do not obey any more, they are removed from power.

Saudi Arabia which bombs Yemen and funds terrorists groups is supported by Western countries because they purchase military gear in billions of dollars. If they stop that, their government will be forced to change.

The Western model of regime change has become predictable.
