TEHRAN (Iran News) –Western powers and predominantly the U.S. have always claimed they are anti-war countries and support peace in the world but they have actually been behind all wars and even they have waged or ignited the wars in any part of the world and Ukraine is the best contemporary example for this war-mongering nature of the U.S. and its Western allies.
While the Russia-Ukraine war is approaching its eighth month after the outbreak, the U.S. and its allies fan the flame of the war and they do not try to stop it and they even send weapons to Ukraine and increase economic pressure on Russia in order that the war continues; and the Western arms sellers will be the ones which will benefit from the prolongation of this war and Ukrainian people are the real victims of this war which was because of the excessive demands of the West which fooled Ukrainian government to fall into the trap of the West.
According to reports the U.S. wants to increase its arms sale to Ukraine in order to strengthen the country against Russia. The Biden administration’s next security assistance package for Ukraine is reportedly expected to be $1 billion, one of the largest so far, and include munitions for long-range weapons and armored medical transport vehicles, three sources briefed on the matter told Reuters.
The package is expected to be announced as early as Monday and would add to about $8.8 billion in aid the United States has given Ukraine since Russia’s invasion on Feb. 24.
The officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that President Joe Biden had not yet signed the next weapons package. They cautioned that weapons packages can change in value and content before they are signed.
However, if signed in its current form, it would be valued at $1 billion and include munitions for HIMARS, NASAMS surface-to-air missile system ammunition and as many as 50 M113 armored medical transports.
The new package follows a recent Pentagon decision to allow Ukrainians to receive medical treatment at a U.S. military hospital in Germany near Ramstein air base.
A couple days before, the Pentagon announced a separate security assistance package for Ukraine valued at up to $550 million, including additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS).
This is just a simple sign for the U.S. support of prolongation of war in Ukraine and word-mongering habit of the Americans which benefit from it and earns the country billions of dollars or bring puppet governments to the power for future milking of them.
The result of a new research is another proof that the U.S. is behind most wars and clashes in most part of the world. The new research study has revealed that more than a quarter of the worldwide U.S. military offensives in the American history have taken place in the West Asia region and Africa.
The survey, titled Introducing the Military Intervention Project: A New Dataset on U.S. Military Interventions, said the US had undertaken almost 400 military interventions since its founding in 1776 until 2019, with more than a quarter occurring in the post-Cold War period.
Stressing that U.S. military interventions “increasingly” targeted the Middle East and Africa, the study also found that the post-9/11 era had resulted in “higher hostility levels,” with U.S. military adventures becoming “overwhelmingly commonplace.”
“The cumulative impact of what we discovered from our data collection effort was indeed surprising,” said Sidita Kushi, an assistant professor at Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts, and one of the study’s authors said in an interview with the Middle East Eye.
“We hadn’t expected both the quantity and quality of US military interventions to be as large as revealed in the data.”
Underlining the U.S. “decades-long hyper-interventionist stance,” Kushi said America’s global military footprints “might be surprising to Americans. But, they are hardly surprising to the rest of the world.”
The report pointed to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, saying the U.S. emerged as the dominant military power across the world after the incident, however, it did not result in in a decrease in Washington’s military interventions.
“The post-Cold War era has produced fewer great power conflicts and instances in which to defend vital U.S. interests, yet U.S. military interventions continue at high rates and higher hostilities,” the report said. “This militaristic pattern persists during a time of relative peace, one of arguably fewer direct threats to the US homeland and security.”
The study said the end of the Cold War unchained U.S. military global ambitions, adding that even as U.S. rivals reduced their military intervention, Washington “began to escalate its hostilities,” resulting in a “widening gap between U.S. actions relative to its opponents.”
The study cited the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute as saying that the cost of the U.S. military stands at more than $800bn annually, accounting for almost 40 percent of global military spending.
There is a proverb that it says cats do not catch the mice for God’s sake and the U.S. does not spend billions of dollars for the sake of supporting people in Europe, Asia, Africa or any part of the world and it will definitely benefit of this investment through conflicts and wars.
So it is natural the U.S. to support Ukraine war and to flood its weapons into this country in order that Ukraine stands against one of the biggest rivals of the U.S.; therefore one cannot expect the Russia-Ukraine war to end soon and it will continue till the moment the U.S. realizes that its support is in vain and also Ukrainians realize that they have turned into a puppet of the West and come to their senses and stop the war
Since the West and U.S. supports the war in Ukraine, we cannot expect the UN to take any serious step to stop this war because the UN has usually shown that it usually follows the West’s path or even when it decides to take action, veto power thwarts this action.
