In 2015, Barack Obama made it perfectly clear how his administration felt about any country or leader that didn’t do what he wants them to do. In fact, in an interview from February of last year, Obama stated that sometimes we must “‘twist the arms’ of countries that wouldn’t do what we need them to do”, and this in a nutshell is how the United States functions as a rogue aggressor on the geo-political stage.
Whether it is the unlawfully funded coup in Ukraine, or the false flag attacks in Paris to try to stop that country from moving closer to Russia, the U.S. is an empire built upon blunt demands to sovereign nations rather than diplomacy and acceptance for the rights and wills of he people of other countries.
So perhaps it should come as no surprise on April 22 when President Obama had published an op-ed in which he is trying to ‘twist the arms’ of the British people and force them to vote against a Brexit and in leaving the Eurozone.
And it appears his gesture was not taken very well by British legislators.
Kate Hoey MP said of the warning: “We felt it is important the President of the United States is aware that feelings will run high in the UK if he chooses to make an intervention. We have chosen to respectfully request he recognises matters of sovereignty are best left to the citizens directly affected. We would certainly never think of visiting the United States and telling the US public how to vote in an election or the amendment of their constitution.”
Peter Bone MP said: “Whatever the President perceives the interests of the US to be it would be better for the relationship between our countries and his reputation with the British people if he kept his counsel to himself.” – Zerohedge
Nations around the world have been isolating the U.S. more and more, especially following their coup in Ukraine, their covert overthrows in Libya and attempted one in Syria, and the use of NATO to try to antagonize Russia into war. And when you couple this with economic threats made by long-standing U.S. ally Saudi Arabia earlier this week, the writing appears more and more on the wall that the days of American hegemony are coming to a close.
During the Cold War, the U.S. was able to paint a picture of themselves where they stood for truth and justice while the former Soviet Union was the ‘Evil Empire’ to be feared and shunned. But following the Union’s collapse in 1991, and the rise of Putin’s new Russia that is built on free trade and economic fellowship, the tables have now turned, and it is Washington who is seen as the rogue aggressor to world peace, and no amount of arm twisting now is going to change that.
