The United States believes that it is so invincible, exceptional and
so frightening that no one would ever dare to protest, let alone
defend its people against constant humiliation, economic embargos
and military threats.
It used to be like this for quite some time. In the past, the West
used to bully the world before and after each well-planned assault.
Also, well-crafted propaganda used to be applied.
It was declared that things are done 'legally' and rationally.

citizens and people all over the world",

Now, things are slightly different.

Earlier, as he was about to land outside London, he embarked on
insulting the Mayor of the British capital, calling him names. A bit

Russia and China.

The world had been converted into an entity
which appears to be run by a bloodthirsty and unpredictable
dictatorship. The world is an entity where everyone is terrified of
being purged, imprisoned, starved to death, or directly attacked,
It was always like this, at least in the modern history of the
planet. Colonialism, neo-colonialism, imperialism: they have many
different faces but one common root. Root that has been often hidden
deep under the surface.
But this time it is all in the open, raw and brutally honest.
George W. Bush and
Donald Trump have one thing in common:
Bill Clinton and
Barack Obama were both 'suave' presidents.

dine elegantly, and how to commit mass murder in a 'rational,
righteous way'; 'old-fashioned, European-style'.
The brutal, vulgar ways of W. Bush and Donald Trump, have been
consistently shocking all those individuals who are pleased when
things are done 'stylishly' and 'politically correctly'; be it a
coup or the starvation to death of millions through embargos.

far from the inquisitive eyes).
But it is not only the 'offended sensibilities' of predominantly
European population, that matter.
The danger is that someone might take Donald Trump seriously, and
In the past, verbal insults similar to those unleashed now by the US
President, could easily have led to a war, or at least to the
breaking up of diplomatic relationships.
In case Westerners have not realized it, yet... people all over the
world are indignant.
I talk to Libyans, Afghans, Iraqis,
Venezuelans, Cubans, Iranians:
they hate what comes from Washington;
hate it with passion.
They know that what is being done to them is
But for now, they do not know how to defend
themselves. Not yet, but they are thinking.
The entire world now resembles a brutal ghetto, or a slum, where a
heavily armed gang controls the streets, and in fact every corner
At least in the past, subjugated people were able to hide behind
decorative words and ideological pirouettes. They were able to 'save
their face'. They were sodomized in the name of 'freedom',
'democracy' and 'human rights'.
Now, a horrible reality
is flying directly into all directions:

Even the proud and mighty Iran is not 'crossing the line'. As
millions of its people are suffering because of insane sanctions,
the Iranian navy is not yet engaging the US battleships that are
sailing very near its shores.
Even as more and more US bases are being built right next to both
Russia and China's borders, so far there are no substantial military
bases being erected by Moscow or Beijing in places such as
Nicaragua, Cuba or Venezuela.
All this may change, soon.
And the so much dreaded (by Washington) "domino effect" may actually
Non-Western leaders have also their 'bad days' and terrible nights.
They also wake up in the middle of the night, and think, want to
communicate and to act.
Imagine an Iranian leader, waking up at 2AM, and suddenly feeling
overwhelmed by wrath, because Iranian men, women and children are
suffering, for no reason, as a result of the perverse sadism being
regurgitated by the West.
What if he Tweets an insult, too?
he just orders, on a spur of the moment, to have all those obsolete
US aircraft carriers and destroyers that are floating in the

Iran can do it:
everyone knows that it can...!
Technically, militarily, it is easy:
those ships are just sitting
Then what? Will Washington nuke Iran?
Someone may say:
The West is killing millions every year, anyway.
Better to fight it, in order to stop it, once and for all. Others
And then, then what...?
Will Trump give orders to kill tens
of millions, just to maintain control over the world?
What if the US navy vessels bump into a Russian or a Chinese ship,
as they almost did in the South China Sea, recently?
What if a
Russian or Chinese ship sinks, dozens of sailors die. And there is a
retaliation? Then what?
What if Syria has enough and begins shooting down Israeli military
jets that are bombing it, and attacking North American and European
'special forces' that are still located, illegally, on its

you talk to the people in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, you very

The world is not a slave of the West, or the United States. It is

This is the new world.
