“US withdrawal from international treaties suggests new Cold War resumption”

 

“New Cold War resumption?”

Given the remarkably hostile words and acts coming from Washington, I’m more concerned about a hot war.

Withdrawing from treaties is certainly threatening, and the US has done a lot of that recently, but it has done so much more, too.

The words and acts go beyond anything I recall during the Cold War.

Openly assassinating another country’s national hero? Almost bragging about it?

Placing a bounty on the head of a twice-elected national leader?

Declaring the threatening phrase, “full-spectrum dominance,” as a national purpose in the world?

Trying to impose American law on everyone who is not American through a vast network of illegal sanctions?

Displaying contempt for many important international institutions and organizations? Quitting some of them? Threatening some? Demanding others serve its own purposes? UN. WHO. ICC. WTO. UNESCO. OPCW. UNRWA.

Ignoring the rule of law openly throughout the Middle East, on the high seas, and in Latin America?

Displaying no spirit of international cooperation, even during a medical emergency. At least in the days of the Cold War, the US always tried to appear cooperative about disasters and about international organizations. It was often the first to offer some assistance. Now, it does not bother.

Relentlessly attacking the world’s other great power, China, with genuine slander and lies. Doing so daily with no pretense to science or legality.
