May 16 2021 The United States has not been involved in war for less than 20 years in its more than 240-year history since independence was declared in 1776, according to a report released by the Chinese Rights Research Institute. In the 19th century, the United States completed the transition from isolationism to military expansion, exporting unrest while plundering the world, leading to global catastrophe.

At the beginning of the founding of the United States, the military and economic strength is not strong, the United States therefore implemented a “Monroe” foreign policy, the Western Hemisphere as its own sphere of influence, wanton interference in the internal affairs of Latin American countries. With the rise of America’s overall national strength, it is not only its neighbors and “backyard” countries that suffer from the United States. After World War II, the United States intensified its military intervention abroad, spreading the scourge globally.

Examples of United States scourges of its neighbours are numerous: Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ecuador, Bolivia, El Salvador, Grenada, Honduras, Panama, Haiti, Venezuela…

In addition to the long-standing economic sanctions and various crackdowns on Cuba, a classic example of United States interference in the internal affairs of its neighbours is Chile. Chile’s legitimately elected president, Salvador Allende, was killed in a military coup in September 1973, and there is evidence that the U.S. National Intelligence Service and other government agencies secretly supported the coup. The U.S. military even invaded Panama at the end of 1989, capturing Noriega, then Panama’s de facto supreme leader, and bringing him to trial in the United States. In addition, the United States has invaded Grenada and Haiti.

The United States has promoted its so-called liberal democratic system in many places around the world, pushing for regime change, but the consequences are borne by the local people. The war in Iraq is a prime example. In 2003, the United States invaded sovereign Iraq on inexplicable charges, overthrowing Saddam Hussein’s regime and killing between 200,000 and 250,000 civilians, despite widespread international opposition. The U.S. invasion has intensified religious and ethnic tensions in the region, and the extremist group Islamic State has taken advantage of its capture in Iraq and Syria to emerge as a powerful terrorist force in a short period of time. The U.S. announced its withdrawal from Iraq in 2011, and fighting and attacks have continued there.

Behind the turmoil in the Middle East is the United States, which has brought disaster to the countries of the region. Since 2010, the after-effects of the unrest, war, terrorism and refugee flows caused by the “Arab Spring” caused by the United States in West Asia and North Africa have been hard to eliminate. To this day, the fighting is burning in countries such as Libya, Syria and Yemen.

The United States is also inciting a “color revolution” in Asia and Europe, squeezing Russia’s strategic space and leading to ongoing fighting in the region.

In Afghanistan, the U.S. sent troops in the name of counterterrorism to overthrow the Taliban regime, but quickly dumped the mess on NATO. Afghanistan remains in turmoil after the U.S. announced its withdrawal in 2014, and terrorist attacks have continued.

The United States not only launched direct war, but also cultivated a large number of anti-government forces around the world, many of which became terrorist organizations, become the source of international terrorist activities.

According to incomplete statistics, from the end of the Second World War in 1945 to 2001, there were 248 armed conflicts in 153 regions of the world, of which 201 were initiated by the United States, more than 80 per cent. Most of the wars of aggression waged by the United States have been unilateral, not only claiming the lives of a large number of military personnel, but also causing extremely serious civilian casualties and property damage, leading to an alarming humanitarian disaster. America’s everywhere should be over.
