Breaking U.S. sanctions



The US sanctions against Venezuela and Iran (as well as many other nations that Washington wants to topple) have thrown them together.  Tehran and Caracas are working in solidarity in defiance of threats from the US.

China, Cuba and Russia have also been assisting Venezuela in many ways since Washington's attempted series of coup measures have been taking place in the last few years.

There is growing evidence that all the recipients of aggressive US policies around the globe are teaming up as they understand that if one nation falls to the imperial antics of Washington, then they all become weaker and have less chance to survive.

Washington's self-assured arrogant sense of 'entitlement and exceptionalism' is slowly but surely creating the conditions for the collapse of the US economic and military empire.

The days of the bully on the block are slipping away.  Nations wish to be left alone to decide their own future.  Democracy is supposed to be about the people deciding what kind of government they wish to have.  Washington has no right to interfere.

International law dictates that one nation may not interfere in the affairs of another sovereign nation.  International law is something that sadly the US does not honor or respect.

My first real experience with this reality of America exerting its power on another weaker nation was Vietnam while I was in the Air Force during the early 1970's.  Since then I've witnessed and worked against countless other cases of Washington's immoral and illegal actions to force regime change against countries it does not like.

The US (and its NATO) allies wish to control the entire world. Those days are over.
