It reads like a declaration of war to every country that does not accept Washington’s hegemony

I listened to part of Trump’s UN speech this morning. I was so embarrassed for him and for my country that I had to turn it off.

I wonder if whoever wrote the deplorable speech intended to embarrass Trump and inadvertantly embarrassed America as well, or whether the speechwriter(s) is so imbued with the neoconservative arrogance and hubris of our time that the speechwriter was simply blind to the extraordinary contradictions that stood out like sore thumbs all through the speech.

I am not going to describe all of them, just a couple of examples.

Trump went on at great length about how America respects the sovereignty of every country and the people’s will of every country, and how the US, despite its overwhelming military power, never tries to impose its will on any country. What was the administration thinking, or can it think? What about Yugoslavia/Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Egypt, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, Crimea, Ukraine, Venezuela, Honduras, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, Argentina, just to mention countries in the 21st century that have been subjected to US military attacks, government overthrows, and removals of political leaders who did not conform to US interests?

Is it respect for the sovereignty of countries to force them to support US sanctions against Iran, Russia, China, North Korea, Venezuela? Is it respect for the sovereignty of countries to impose sanctions on the countries? If this is not imposing Washington’s will on other countries, what is?

Is it respect for other countries to inform them that unless they do as they are told, “we will bomb you into the stone age”?

I heard Trump complain that the UN Human Rights commission had as members countries with the worst human rights records of our time, and I wondered if he was talking about the United States. Clearly, Trump, the speechwriter(s), the State Department, the National Security Council, the US Ambassador to the UN, indeed the entire administration, do not think that the endless slaughter, maiming, orphaning, widowing, and dispossessing of millions of peoples in many countries, producing waves of refugees, comprise human rights violations.

The arrogance conveyed by Trump’s speech is unprecedented.

After assurances that America respects everyone, Trump then made demand after demand and threat after threat against the sovereignty of Iran and North Korea, demanding that the rest of the world back him up.

Neither country is a threat to the US. Unlike the US and Israel, Korea has not been at war since 1953. Iran’s last war was in the 1980s when Iran was attacked by Iraq. Yet both North Korea and Iran are subjected to constant threats from the US. At the UN Trump threatened North Korea with destruction, and Washington is telling more lies about Iran in order to justify military action.

Here is what former Secretary of State Colin Powell says about how carefully Washington thinks about other peoples:

“We thought we knew what would happen in Libya. We thought we knew what would happen in Egypt. We thought we knew what would happen in Iraq, and we guessed wrong. In each one of these countries the thing we have to consider is that there is some structure that’s holding the society together. And as we learned, especially in Libya, when you remove the top and the whole thing falls apart . . . you get chaos.”

That’s what Washington does. It brings chaos to tens of millions of peoples, destroying their lives and the prospects of their countries. This is the behavior that Trump described as American compassion for others. This is what Trump says is respecting others and the sovereignty of their countries. Washington dresses up its crimes against humanity as a “war on terror.” The tens of millions of slaughtered, maimed, and displaced persons are merely “collateral damage.”

This is why the US is considered the greatest threat to peace. International polls show that the world regards the US as a much greater threat to peace than North Korea and Iran. Yet Trump described the US, universally regarded as the greatest threat to the world, as the great protector of peace. Has there ever been a greater disturber of peace?

One wonders if the rest of the world, especialy Russia and China, got Washington’s message. Washington’s plan for UN “reform” is a plan to turn the organization into another instrument of US foreign policy, like NATO and the EU. The message that Trump was sent to deliver to the UN is that henceforth the UN is expected to support Washington’s foreign policy agenda. Opponents to Washington’s war policy are to be isolated and lumped together with the bad countries as defined by Washington.

In other words Washington accepts no limits on its unilateralism. This means war for every country that does not accept Washington’s hegemony. (1 image)

It's incredibly naive to think that the United Nations, created to be a propaganda platform for America and hosted in America, would ever be anything other than what it is: the plaything of the five permanent members of the Security Council.

Wow. He turned off the speech, did not listen to it, and then wrote an article about it.

He likely read the transcript before Trump even started the speech.

Javnka leaked it well before the UN appearance.

Typical.

This Globalist-Firster media-ho ought to be embarrassed for *partially* bending over for his 30 pieces.

All these guys' reactions and critiques are the same scripted BS. As are their compensation.

Good list...In almost the proper chronological order.

The bad news is that they are merely the tip of the traitor iceberg. The nameless, faceless perverts and occultists behind the scene will skate...

The only true judgment any of these demons will likely ever face is before The Almighty. The incarceration phase will be Forever and a Day.

I'm sure now you'll accuse me of picking on you...

...BUT YOU'RE WRONG AGAIN. And this one was too easy.

The UN was created simply as a propaganda platform, tool, and "Play-Thing" of World's Secular Humanist Elites for eventually obliterating ALL national sovereignty and blending every nation, every religion, every economy into citizens of a compliant anti-Christ One World Gubmint.

What did YOU think of Trump's speech?

It was a disgusting rehash of the Bush/Kerry/Obama/Hillary/McCain neocon foreign policy of supporting global terrorism because "our muzzies" are allegedly better than the other ones.

He goes to great lengths to extol the virtues of national sovereignty, and then proposes the opposite like regime change in Syria and much more. It's loaded with hypocrisy, deception and NWO globalist propaganda.

We're not forcing them. We can't force them. We're saying they can either support sanctions or we go to war with North Korea.
