Summary (IA Generated)

When it was learned in 2016 that Russia may have hacked the emails of John Podesta and the DNC, and passed the fruits on to WikiLeaks to aid candidate Donald Trump, mighty was the outrage of the American establishment.

Some called it an ‘act of war.

Almost all agreed it was intolerable interference in the internal affairs of the United States which called forth both condemnation and retribution.

Yet, when it comes to interfering in the affairs of other nations, how sinless, how blameless, are we Americans?.

During the Cold War, the United States regularly dumped over regimes we believed imperiled our cause – Iran in 1953, Guatemala in 1954, the Congo in the 1960s.

After the Cold War, the United States was a major mover in the ‘color revolutions’ that changed regimes in Ukraine and Georgia.

According to Victoria Nuland, then of the State Department, now back again, $5 billion was pumped in to effect the overthrow of the democratically elected pro-Russian regime in Kiev and its replacement by a pro-American one.

This was the triggering event that caused Vladimir Putin to annex Crimea to secure his country‘s Black Sea naval base at Sevastopol.

Consider the reaction in this capital to the arrest and imprisonment of dissident Alexei Navalny, following his return from Germany, where he had been treated for chemical poisoning, allegedly by Putin‘s security services.

Consider what the Post is calling for here:.

S.

and NATO nations should openly side with protesters in Russia’s cities whose goal is the overthrow of Putin and of the internationally recognized government of Russia.

How, one wonders, would Americans react if Putin openly urged worldwide support for the ‘Stop the Steal’ mob that invaded the U.

Among these are the values of democracy as practiced in the United States.

And nations that do not conform to these standards are candidates for U.

Where did we Americans acquire the right to intervene in the internal affairs of nations – be they autocracies, monarchies or republics – that do not threaten or attack us?.

When we have intervened in these nations militarily, disaster has most often been the result.

President Joe Biden reacted reflexively, calling it a ‘direct assault on the country’s transition to democracy.

Actually, the larger question, the basic question is why the internal affairs of Burma, a nation 10,000 miles from the United States, are the business of the United States.

The post-Cold War world, where America stood in moral judgment of the democracy credentials of all other nations, and acted against those that did not sufficiently conform, is coming to an end.
