Double standards, genocidal, racist, crusaders and forgetful consciousness of the West towards Russia in Ukraine war as it was towards Iraq in Gulf war
By Claudio Resta for VT Italia
Double standards consciousness of the West in the sense of judging the actions of others according to very different criteria of which that guided in a recent past its own actions.
To give just one example, I would mention the Gulf War, but other examples could also be mentioned, in which the West has behaved in a recent past in a far more aggressive, arbitrary and far less respectful way of human rights than Russia, as in Libyan war too.
Let me remember that the Gulf War was an armed campaign waged by a US-led coalition of 35 countries against Iraq in response to the Iraq invasion and successive annexation of Kuwait.
There is a double opposite analogy with the Gulf war and Ukraine war, from one point of view Russian attempted annexation of Ukraine is in someway analogous to annexation of Kuwait by Saddam’s Iraq.
From the opposite point of view a mixed strategy of providing arms to Ukraine and sanctions against Russia campaign waged by a US-led coalition of many countries.
The main difference between these two wars is that the Armed Forces of the coalition of the willing were directly involved in Gulf war while they are involved mainly (?!) indirectly as weapons purveyors in Ukraine war, supported by strong anti-Russia propaganda and fake news on mainstream and social media.
And the claimed indirect nature of this war sound just like a trick! An escamotage.
And also let point the fact that this war seems also to be an economic hit war. Among whose purposes are famine in undeveloped countries, and the collapse of the economies of willing coalition, mainly European ones.
Just like anti-Covid 19 measures’s effects, look how strange! Look at the coincidence!
However, back to the Gulf war, it consisted of two campaigns: a first one in 1991, and a second one in 2003 this happened in ways that were extremely violent and cruel (Bulldozer assault, Highway of Death among others) as I have already had occasion to recall in another piece of mine and that I think would certainly have been sanctioned by a Geneva Convention in their spirit if only such a Convention at that old times had been able to foresee these new contemporary offensive techniques.
And unfortunately it’s not anymore time of chivalrous warfare and honor code but of Fordist industrial destruction of enemy forces and weapon systems.
In a careful manipulative strategy of PR and media control as in the motion pictures Wag the Dog…
These campaigns of the Gulf war were accompanied by severe sanctions that caused, among other things, a long and protracted massacre of children who could not receive the necessary care
The former US Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, at the time of Gulf war and sanctions publicly admitted that she thinks the deaths of half a million Iraqi children consequence of sanctions against Iraq were ‘worth it’, in the most absolute indifference and hypocrisy of the West for ‘democracy and human rights’.
These sanctions that it is good to emphasize lasted about twelve years so that their effects were well seen alongtime were determined by a genocidal, racist and crusader attitude of the West.
Racist and crusader attitude against those muslim and not western neither jew Iraqi kids.
As racist and crusader attitude as the present one against Russian Hortodox people.
Whose religion is neither as approved in the USA as the Jewish one, neither as Catholic and Protestant ones that all are the favorites, elected religions of Uncle Sam and they are all rivals of Hortodoxy.
Which is in some way Heterodox in America…An oxymoron.
Despite the fact that Hortodoxy is the religion of an Ancien Regime of Central Europe against which American Revolution was made. Nevertheless with religion, any religion you hit a nerve in America,yet.
A little detail at the end: I think that the sanctions against Patriarch Kirill are particularly inappropriate.
For good or evil he is the Primate of a Church, in the World, on the Earth.
Would you ever sanction the Pope? Aren’t you afraid of offending American Catholics?
