"The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion []

but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence.

Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do."
American Professor Samuel P. Huntington,

"The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order"

"Violence can only be concealed by a lie,

and the lie can only be maintained by violence.

Any man who has once proclaimed violence as his method

is inevitably forced to take the lie as his principle".
Russian Writer Alexander Solzehnitsyn


Since the beginning of Europe's Age of Discovery in early 15th century European nations have competed with each other to invade, colonize, and annex nations and territories from the Americas to the west they cast their net across the entire southern hemisphere to the small Oceanic islands in the east.

Such was the rule of the "White Man's Burden" tasked divinely and economically to civilize the savages and barbarians of the dark continents.

From the map below one can easily see that the white man of the northern hemisphere ruled, enslaved, and robbed the majority of the world's dark populations of the southern hemisphere.

A French man, Alfred Sauvy in 1952 even coined a term for the dark world:

the "Third World" as opposed to the western "First" world and the Communist bloc nations, the "Second" world.

The term came into play during the Cold War.







Map of the Third World encompassing

the world's southern hemisphere;

exceptions Australia and New Zealand.


"When the white man turns tyrant, it is his own freedom that he destroys."
George Orwell, "Shooting an Elephant"

Incredibly one can almost draw a straight line across the globe dividing the rich powerful colonial powers of the northern hemisphere from the impoverished weak colonized victims of the southern hemisphere

The white man's crusades against the dark continents have not stopped and will never cease as long as the white man thinks himself as the superior chosen race and sees the rest of humanity as pawns in a geopolitical competitive chess game - to conquer, kill, move, alter, enslave, exploit, and rob at will.

The most striking and evil example of western colonialism today is the colonial racist existence of Israel.


Russia's Invasion of the Ukraine and the Limitless American Hypocrisy

Lies, Hypocrisy, Greed, and Force have been the modus operandi of all powerful nations and empires throughout history.

As such, Truth and Justice have been an anathema to those who have the power to prey upon the weak. Their might is right while their power lasts but sooner or later they collapse while another power rises.


To the victor go the spoils.

"These plunderers of the world [the Romans], after exhausting the land by their devastations, are rifling the ocean: stimulated by avarice, if their enemy be rich; by ambition, if poor; unsatiated by the East and by the West: the only people who behold wealth and indigence with equal avidity.


To ravage, to slaughter, to usurp under false titles, they call empire; and where they make a desert, they call it peace".

Roman Senator and Historian

A truer quote for the ages has not been said.

Today an ugly semblance of the Cold War has risen between East and West over Russia's invasion of the Crimean Peninsula and eventually annexing it to Russia.


Putin may fancy himself the modern Peter the Great ever seeking to add territory to Russia and recreate the mother land as a world power to be reckoned with. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union the west has wrongfully mistreated and dismissed Russia as a minor player in world affairs.


With NATO expanding eastward to Russia's border, with America's establishment of new military bases in former Soviet satellites, and the delayed placement of a missile defense system close to Russia, no one can blame the Russians for feeling insecure and threatened by the West.


Thus the annexation of Crimea can be directly blamed on an arrogant miscalculation by the West.

The rhetoric used by western leaders in denounce Russia's action is unhelpful and further inflaming the situation. Given that no military option is contemplated quiet diplomacy is needed to defuse the situation.

The West must accept the finality of Crimea's annexation but it can negotiate with Putin that Russia formally recognizes the Ukraine as an independent state with the right to determine its future domestically and internationally and Russia must withdraw its troops from Ukraine's border and never establish military bases across from Ukraine's border.

Putin has made his point and won a small domestic and international victory by annexing an impoverished Crimea that will be totally dependent on Russia for its economic survival. Annexation will cost Russia greatly and hurt its domestic economy.

Putin is obviously looking for a negotiated settlement and the West now has the opportunity to pressure Russia not to threaten or invade any former Communist nation in Eastern Europe. He may even accept the missile defense system that U.S. wants to establish in the Czech Republic.

The U.N. could sponsor a negotiated settlement between Russia and Ukraine by which Ukraine declares it accepts the "self determination" vote of the Crimeans, no recognition of Crimea is needed. Naturally this will be for the cause of peace and stability in the region. This then opens the door for full negotiations between the west and Russia.

Putin could also be persuaded to be more forthcoming on the Syrian and Iranian front. Russia's economy will collapse if greater sanctions are put in place.

Such a scenario will save the face of both sides and end the standoff. Any western gloating would be counterproductive.

In the meantime, by what right, credibility, and moral authority can the U.S., the most violent nation in history, attack anyone for illegal invasions and violations of "international Law"?

Hello!! Remember Iraq and Afghanistan...


What of Obama's Drone Wars in,

  • Africa

  • the Middle East

  • Pakistan

  • Afghanistan

  • the Philippines?

The United Nations in a report called such Drone Wars - ILLEGAL - due to the high civilian casualties that result from such attacks and thus violate International Law.



U.S. overthrows the Queen of Hawaii

and Annexes the nation as the fiftieth state.



Let's not go too far to see America's forceful annexation of a nation - Hawaii, its fiftieth state.

U.S. and Europe's foreign policy can best be summed up as:

"Do as I say, Not as I do"

Without shame and moral credibility V.P. Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, despite their accusations of Russia violating international law by invading a sovereign nation, Crimea - ALL 3 Voted to invade IRAQ.

Please watch the video below on the Lies about Iraq that launched an illegal and devastating war upon an innocent population resulting in the deaths of One Million Iraqis.


So what do you do after the mass hysterical propaganda that galvanized Congress and the American people to support an invasion of Iraq, a war crime and crime against humanity, you declare victory and leave, although there are tens of thousands of U.S. paid private paramilitary personnel left along with an Embassy worth over $1 Billion.





The "war on terror" became a "terror war on the innocent".

The Coalition of the Killing massacred the innocent with impunity and no one is ever held accountable. Today in the U.S. Iraq and Afghanistan are barely on the radar screen.

The lives and livelihood of America's victims from Latin America, to Africa, to Asia are meaningless, insignificant, and unworthy of any memory or sense of responsibility.

  • Neither the U.S. nor Russian here can claim the high moral ground for both have a long history of invading weaker nations, usually for economic greed.

  • Neither nation has a fundamental respect for the sanctity of life of others nor for their basic human rights.

  • Both are criminal nations using their superior military and nuclear power to intimidate and enforce their national interests upon others


  • Both use their Veto power in the U.N. Security Council to thwart each others interests.

With power comes impunity whether it's the U.S., the E.U., Russia, or Israel.

If any of these nations truly respected and adhered to International Law so many of their murderous leaders would be in or have died in prison.
