Joe Biden is now President-Elect of the US!
Donald Trump, the reckless businessman turned politician, who was a serious threat to world peace and stability, has been utterly defeated in the 2020 US election.
He will therefore soon be kicked out of the White House and consigned to the museum of history. Joe Biden is now President-Elect of the US. It is really a great relief to all peace-loving people of the world that the man who was following a confrontational and dangerous path has been removed from the highest office in the world.
Likewise, Mdrebahri also warned pointedly that the political trends in the US, under the administration of Donald Trump, seemed destined to wipe out the positive and forward-looking achievements registered
in the contemporary world and replace them with negative and irrational, backward-looking policies.
Furthermore, Mdrebahri stated authoritatively that, considering the shocking campaign statements and promises that Donald Trump made, both as a candidate and after he won the election to administer the affairs of a superpower, there were no political grounds to believe that a Trump-led US government would espouse the universally shared values of democracy, freedom, rule of law, equality and human dignity. Indeed, Mdrebahri stated categorically and unhesitatingly that, albeit unwisely, Trump seemed vigorously determined to pursue reckless foreign and domestic policies based on chauvinism, parochial and fascistic thinking, America First policies reflecting an utter contempt for the people of other countries.
Under a Trump presidency, Mdre Bahri envisaged American foreign policy to be highly antagonistic, chauvinist and isolationist. This would be a dangerous foreign policy, guided by and based on the obsolete doctrine of the narrowly constructed white supremacist ideology of “Americanism” and “America First”. He was also expected to deport millions of undocumented immigrants and build Berlin-style walls between the US and its immediate neighbour, Mexico.
In other words, Mdrebahri boldly foretold that, in diametrical opposition to the American constitutional order and to democracy, Trump seemed vigorously determined to promote hatred, racism and bigotry, to erect walls of division and hatred between Mexico and the US and to ban and deport millions of Muslims and undocumented immigrants. Having warned of the serious dangers that Trump posed to world peace and harmony, Mdrebahri then asked the following questions: how did Trump’s racist policies differ then from the Hitler-inspired fascism in Germany? And how would the international community react if a newly elected German chancellor had made frighteningly racist statements identical to those aired by Trump?
In my opinion, there could not be any doubt that any German government with racist policies would have been condemned and singled out as a Nazi government and globally isolated and sanctioned. Consequently, Mdrebahri asked: why are world leaders reacting indifferently to the Nazi-like policy announcements of Donald Trump?
In conclusion, Mdrebahri suggested that it was high time that the world community told Trump, in clear and strong language, before he spat out his poisonous saliva, that he needed to understand that it was incumbent on the leader of a superpower to possess and demonstrate qualities of broad-mindedness, refined wisdom, diplomacy and super-responsibility rather than behave recklessly and antagonistically with all the consequences that that would entail.
Since he took over the White House on January 20 2017, this North American fascist mad dog has been busily issuing anti-people executive orders, with edicts ordering the building of a wall between the US and Mexico and the wholesale banning of Muslims from entering the US, including those holding Green Cards. In proclaiming these cruel measures, Trump created havoc and panic among thousands of families who were stranded in various airports around the world.
Lately, he has been at loggerheads with the seasoned leaders of Russia and China over his bombing of a Syrian airbase, in crude violation of international law, in retaliation for the claim that Bashar-al-Assad has attacked civilians using chemical weapons.
Since the termination of the Second World War, the US government has been the champion breaker of international law and the greatest perpetrator of violence against the people of weaker Third World nations.
The world has lately noted that Donald Trump is the mother of contradictions. One day he says that America under his administration would not be the policeman of the world and that he would be the president only of the United States and the next day he authorises the bombing of Syria by firing 59 Tomahawk missiles; first he says that NATO, the military alliance, is obsolete and then he says it’s no longer obsolete.
Donald Trump is now threatening to destroy North Korea with all the dire consequences for the entire world that this would entail.
In his address to the UN General Assembly on September 19 2017, Trump derisively described the young ruler of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un, as “Rocket Man on a suicide mission” and threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea if Kim should attack the US.
In this way, Trump has threatened to obliterate North Korea’s 25.4 million people. The President told the UN: “Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime” and said that, if the US was “forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea”.
In response, Kim Jong-Un described Trump as a “mentally deranged” dotard gangster “fond of playing with fire”. the North Korean leader also said that Trump was unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country and was surely a rogue and a gangster whom he would “tame… with fire”, warning that he would make the man holding the prerogative of supreme command in the US pay dearly for his speech.
It therefore appears that the tit-for-tat war of words between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un is escalating unabated. And unless something is done quickly to defuse the imminent danger, a catastrophic war between the two countries, which might quickly engulf the entire world, seems inevitable.
Let me therefore conclude my observations with the valuable piece of advice given by the highly respected American Democrat Senator, William J Fulbright, to the leaders of his country in early 1965: “The age of warrior kings and of warrior presidents has passed. The nuclear age calls for a different kind of leadership… a leadership of intellect, judgment, tolerance and rationality, a leadership committed to human values, to world peace and to the improvement of the human condition. The attributes upon which we must draw are the human attributes of compassion and common sense, of intellect and creative imagination, and of empathy and understanding between cultures.”Similarly, having observed the imperialist arrogance and the threatening and bullying behaviour of successive US governments, J William Fulbright, the prominent and gifted 20th-century American statesman, had this to say: “The most striking characteristic of a great nation is not the mere possession of power but the wisdom and restraint and the largeness of view with which that power is exercised. A great nation is one which is capable of looking beyond its own view of the world, or recognizing that, however convinced it may be of the beneficence of its own role and aims, other nations may be equally persuaded of their own benevolence and good intent. It is a mark of both greatness and maturity when a nation like the United States, without abandoning its convictions and commitments, is capable at the same time of acknowledging that there may be some merit and even good intent in the views and aims of its adversaries. In the past, it has come about when, for one reason or another, the West has set itself in opposition to the national aspirations of the emerging peoples. It is to be hoped that, in the future, the United States will leave no country in doubt as to its friendship and support for legitimate national aspirations. If we do this, I do not think that we will soon find ourselves in another conflict like the one in Vietnam.”
