Post-WW II, a permanent US war economy was established to pursue unchallenged global dominance, wanting all sovereign independent governments eliminated – replaced by puppet regimes bowing to Washington’s will, a prescription for endless wars of aggression, risking eventual catastrophic nuclear war.
Permanent war shapes geopolitical policymaking in Washington – business allied with the warrior state for maximum profit-making.
Enterprise in America is built on a foundation of endless war-making, imperialism on an unprecedented scale – nothing like it before in world history.
On Wednesday last week, the State Department released its annual UN Voting Practices Report – comparing how other nations in the General Assembly vote compared to Washington.
They supported US policies 31% of the time – compared to 41% in 2016. Nikki Haley raged about most nations opposing Washington’s agenda much more often than backing it, saying:
“The American people pay 22 percent of the UN budget – more than the next three highest donor countries combined.”
Assessed and voluntary contributions finance UN operations – based on nations’ gross domestic income, adjustments made for external debt and low per capita income.
In 2016, Washington’s contribution to the UN budget was 22%. Japan, China and Germany were the next largest contributors, financing 24% of UN operations.
America does not contribute more than the next three countries combined, as Haley falsely claimed. She never lets facts interfere with her extremism.
Haley: “In spite of (US) generosity (sic), the rest of the world voted with us” less than one-third of the time.
“(T)his is not an acceptable return on our investment. When we arrived at the UN last year, we said we would be taking names, and this list of voting records speaks for itself.”
“President Trump wants to ensure that our foreign (spending) always serve American interests…”
Virtually all US geopolitical spending goes for advancing its imperium, largely for wars of aggression, Haley failed to explain.
Nations most often supporting Washington’s imperial agenda include Australia, Britain, Canada, the Czech Republic, France, Israel, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Palau and Ukraine.
Those mostly opposed include Burundi, Bolivia, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Russia, South Africa, Syria, Turkmenistan, Venezuela and Zimbabwe.
Washington wants the world body used as an extension of its foreign policy. Nations opposed are targeted for regime change. More on this.
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” Revelation 13:11
Can USA tell the world what to do? We see many examples lately that it is starting to do exactly that. Since Sept. 11, 2001, USA has been rising up and talking more proudly than ever before; just like the arrogant Papal Beast before it, it is exulting itself. Now it is getting ready to push its weight around, and it has a lot of weight.
It is going to pass laws to force all people to not only keep Sunday, but also to break the seventh day Sabbath of the Lord. And those who won’t obey them, will not be able to buy or sell. This is the very method that USA has been using for many years now, against countries it doesn’t like; it makes ‘economic sanctions’ and stops them from buying and selling, until they have to ‘give in’.
