World's most comprehensive database of the modern crimes of the Americans/Europeans

Update [15-Aug-16]: This ongoing document isn't meant only for public consumption, it also serves as a stark reminder/warning to myself that these so-called civilized, developed Western countries are beautiful and gentle only on the outside, and deep inside these societies lurks so much filth and rot that if anyone were to see it, he would develop an instant and deep hatred for these nations.

Update [18-May-17]: It's important that only those URLs be used as links which contain a gist/summary of the article in the URL itself, so that if in the future the actual article becomes a 404, then at least the URL provides some help.
  1. Not calling/recognizing the coup in Egypt as a coup [thus breaking its own laws], in order to keep the military aid flowing, 2013 [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
  2. Terming diplomatic/political, military, and trade espionage/spying as legitimate, and calling economic espionage as the equivalent of burglary, while itself heavily engaging in industrial and trade-related espionage, including of companies such as Airbus and Enercon. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]  [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10]
  3. [DRAFT] A vast global spying complex executed through NSA, CIA, DIA and others, plus a vast accompanying apparatus of public deception about the real activities undertaken. Further, the US government is now increasingly starting to claim openly that its collection of communications is legal. What's more, the US government barks loudly at other nations when they allegedly hack into US systems, but the US itself routinely and systemically breaks into the computer systems of other nations as well as those of its own companies and deems this malicious activity as perfectly legitimate. Talk about double-standards and hypocrisy. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
    1. US agencies spy on foreign medical NGOs/nonprofits, purportedly for benign purposes, but likely with a full military/warfare dimension. [link 1]
    2. Near-omnipresent use of face recognition technology in the US without the information or consent of the public, and without court authorization. [link 1]
    3. When a developing country such as India wants to force Western Internet companies to store all personal and business data of Indian citizens on servers deployed inside India, West complains - either directly through associations/lobbies or indirectly through articles in their their vast news media complex - that it's a bad policy choice by the Indian government. Hidden and implicit in these complaints is a racist, colonial mentality which tells these Westerners' minds that privacy is a privilege meant only for the "superior" Western public, and that "poor" Indians shouldn't worry about "things such as" privacy. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    4. Israel's NSO/Pegasus cyber weapons, and WhatsApp: As of May'19 and Oct'19, US routinely and aggressively accuses China [plus Huawei] and Russia of conducting extensive cyber spying/hacking operations, going as far as naming individuals and indicting them. However, as in all things Israel, US and Europe display complete silence when it comes to Israel's known/proven cyber spying/hacking activities; in this case this private cyber weapon is regulated directly by Israel's defence ministry. There has been absolutely no comment from the US regarding these Israeli spyware, let along criticism. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
  4. Putting morally corrupt liars such as James Clapper at the helm of spying agencies, where they can merrily play with language ["least untruthful"] without facing any consequences or punishment and without having to eventually supply the truth. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
  5. French industrial sabotage of the Soviet/Russian Tupolev Tu-144, the world's first supersonic commercial airliner [link 1]
  6. Bombing of Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in Sudan based on "evidence" that was subsequently proven false, leading to the death of [estimated] tens of thousands of Sudanese civilians due to lack of essential drugs, and an absence of apology from the US, 1998 [link 1] [link 2]
  7. BLAMING THE VICTIM | BLAMING WEST'S PREY | TURNING THE TABLES: US - and more generally the West - follows this clever practice. First Western nations thuggishly collude together and impose harsh economic / trade sanctions on countries that they want to conquer/dominate/loot, and later when these victim nations become extremely impoverished and poor - leading to deaths due to disease/hunger and also social unrest - these nations sharply start to blame the governments/leaders of these victim nations as responsible for being "unable to feed their own people", obviously not mentioning to the world that years or decades of crushing Western embargoes / sanctions are largely responsible for the sorry state of affairs in these target nations. North Korea, Sudan and Zimbabwe are examples. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    1. In general, the West blames the misery faced by the Venezuelan people on the country's leadership, without mentioning that US [and European] sanctions are the primary cause of this misery.
      1. The Secretive Gold Deal Keeping Venezuela Afloat, Bloomberg Quicktake [link]
    2. Sep'18: NYT has rented someone to forward the point that Venezuela's current misery is actually a part of the plan of Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro. No mention of the role of US sanctions and threats in crippling Venezuela. [link 1]
      1. Oct'19: In a story, a US official squarely blamed Venezuela's President for the misery being faced by Venezuelan citizens, but didn't cite crippling US sanctions as the actual majority reason. [link 1] [link 2]
    3. Sep'19: story on the economic woes faced by Iranians. [link 1]
    4. Oct'19: story outlines the crippling effect that US sanctions have had on Iran's economy. US will sell these US-induced troubles in Iran's economy as the fault of Iranian leadership. [link 1]
    5. Mar'20: Americans officials / leaders were the first - well documented on the Web - to use the coronavirus pandemic to engage in a worldwide smear campaign against China, putting blame for their own woes on China. China retaliated by pushing forward a possible theory that American soldiers might have brought the virus to Wuhan in Oct'19. In retaliation [SECONDARY] for China's retaliation [PRIMARY], Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo started to forcefully push the terms "Chinese virus" and "Wuhan virus" everywhere. But the lie that the Americans started to started to also push was that it was the Americans who retaliated first. Completely hiding the fact that China's retaliation was against nefarious American actions which preceded China's retaliation. In fact, the Americans explained their retaliation as justified response to "Chinese disinformation campaign". In essence, Americans converted the victim into the perpetrator. And as expected, the Western media is not putting out the correct chronology / timeline of this because that would expose the American propaganda. [link 1]
  8. Unprovoked shoot-down of Iran Air Flight 655, a civilian flight from Tehran to Dubai, killing all 290 civilians, with no apology or admission of guilt by the US to this day, 1988 [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
  9. The myth of "transparency" and "free and independent media" in US: We're made to believe that activities like daily media briefings by America's State Department show how US is a transparent nation, whose news media is free and independent, especially compared to "oppressive" "regimes" elsewhere. Not. As numerous videos from State Department briefings make clear, either this "free" and "independent" US news media simply doesn't ask tough and/or embarrassing questions at these briefings, or if someone does ask, the spokesman/spokeswoman bullshits his or her way out of such a question by giving an "answer" that's completely irrelevant and unrelated to the specific question asked, thus trying to give a fake impression that "the question has been answered". In reality, on issues that expose America's barbaric actions, the State Department simply doesn't have any proper answer, and this demonstrates that America's entire foreign policy and its actions are tyrannical. Far, far worse than actions of those whom America's accuses regularly. US news media makes the life of State Department very easy by almost totally avoiding asking questions that are the most important, almost as if they've been given instructions. [link 1]
  10. The Iraq War by US, UK and others [2003 onwards] deserves a lot of attention for the various heinous crimes that America and Britain knowingly committed, while pretending innocence and while brainwashing the world with lies.
    1. American and British powerful news media complex endlessly repeated the propaganda lie that Iraq/Saddam Hussein had "weapons of mass destruction" [WMDs]. These 2 nations knew extremely well that the opposite was true. They had decided that they needed and wanted to invade and control Iraqi land and its oil wealth, and they used their dominance of global news media to vigorously spread misinformation and practically made it a fact that Iraq had WMDs. They used journalists, pundits, politicians and others to repeat this message over and over so many times that no one could say otherwise. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13]
    2. What does UK do when its soldiers commit mass crimes during the Iraq War - gang rapes of young girls and married women, murders, torture for entertainment, etc. - and are later hit with thousands of lawsuits and criminal inquiries? Just get out of the European Convention on Human Rights [ECHR] so that UK soldiers can't be prosecuted in the future for their "adventures" with people of other nations. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
  11. Iraq War and US-led economic sanctions against Iraq have killed 3.3 million Iraqis, including 750,000 children, according to Francis Boyle [link 1] [link 2]
  12. COERCION / HARASSMENT / INTIMIDATION / PROVOCATIONS / THREATS: When the US cannot outright attack an enemy nation, person, or company, it resorts to thug-like or terrorist-like methods.
    1. Threatening and endangering an inflight Iranian passenger plane of Mahan Air by sending fighter jets dangerously close to it, Jul'20. [link 1]
  13. THE MYTH OF "INTELLIGENCE FAILURE" IN IRAQ WAR: After it eventually became naked to the world that the whole WMD pretext spread to launch the Iraq War was false [that is, no WMDs were found], America started peddling a new reason for the absence of WMDs in Iraq - a massive intelligence failure [or "wrong intelligence"]. This is nonsense and is an attempt to make this barbaric war look like it's the result of a "mistake", so that no one is able to float around the idea that America deliberately and knowingly did whatever it did. No one seems to be asking this very important question - what if the United States knew right from the start that there were no WMDs in Iraq, and that none would ever be found, and had properly planned in advance that if/when there would be criticism of America's destruction of Iraq, America would start to sell this "intelligence failure" theory? In order to be able to wage wars unilaterally, America needs a high moral standing in the world, and this "intelligence failure" coverup is a nice way to make sure that America isn't seen as evil. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
    1. Rebuilding Americas Defenses - Project for the New American Century (PNAC) [link 1] [link 2]
  14. [DRAFT] Supply of biological/chemical agents to Iraq by US, UK, etc. [link 1]
  15. [DRAFT] Utter destruction of Iraq, its people, its institutions, its economy and its stability via the unilateral Iraq War. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
    1. [DRAFT] Use of chemical [napalm-like bombs and white phosphorus] and radioactive weapons [depleted uranium bombs] in Fallujah/Iraq [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
  16. Strong opposition and also a Reject vote to UN General Assembly resolution 67/19, proving that the US does not want to see a Palestinian state [link 1] [link 2]
  17. Opposing Sweden's recognition of Palestine as a state, calling it "premature", while jumping to recognize and militarily support in Libya and Syria the destabilizing, terrorist-like, Western-funded, so-called "rebels" as the "sole representative of the people", Oct'14 [link 1] [link 2]
  18. [DRAFT] America has used its veto power at the UNSC 40+ times since 1975 to protect Israel and to stop the formation of Palestine. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
    1. US always strongly opposes any and every criticism of Israel at the UN, including evidence-backed reports. Truth or not, it doesn't matter, and what matters is that Israel cannot be allowed to be criticized irrespective of its actions. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9]
    2. US is so completely and absolutely controlled by Israel/Jews that US will go to any extent possible or required to support Israel. In Oct'17, US left UNESCO citing an anti-Israel bias at the organization, whereas in reality UNESCO simply states the truth - that Israel is occupying Palestine and conducting cruelties on Palestinian people. US and Israel cannot digest a global organization exposing them so publicly. [link 1]
  19. US objection to and blocking of appointing former Palestinian PM as US Libya envoy. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
  20. Whenever Russia has used it veto power at the UNSC and vetoed Western resolutions that it didn't agree with, the West has cried foul that Russia is "abusing" its veto privilege, and that Russia is "blocking" UNSC from working. A step has to be taken back at this point to understand what exactly is the purpose of voting at UNSC. It is "to determine" what the outcome is. It is not merely a procedural formality to put a rubber stamp on West's secret fantasies. West can't "pre-determine" the outcome and then complain when West's nefarious ambitions didn't get enough support. How can we know whether there is support or not from all five permanent members - the binding mechanism for UNSC resolutions - unless there's a democratic voting? If Russia and/or China veto a resolution, what right does the West have to howl that Russia is "misusing" is privilege? Does Russia "have to" align its vote with West's votes? If yes, what's the point of Russia voting at all? The voting is done to "find out" what the world thinks about the resolution(s). We don't know "before" voting how the world thinks. If the vote turns out to be unfavorable to the West, it can't complain because there just isn't enough support, and that's very much alright because UNSC can only take steps when there's multilateral consensus and support. [link 1]
    1. A related point is that American news media frequently speaks/writes as if it knows what "the world" thinks and wants. How can it speak on the behalf of the world? How can American newspapers write titles of their stories claiming that they represent "the world"? If a few Western countries think and want something, how can American news media simply extrapolate and generalize it to "the world"? This is very misleading [although likely deliberate]. Makes the readers think that maybe it's actually "the world" that's thinking like that. [link 1] [link 2]
      1. Claiming loudly that France has "lost its way", and thus sowing fear and uncertainty, based on the supporting statement of just one fellow. [link 1]
  21. Openly manipulating its own currency under the QE banner, while howling on top of its voice about China keeping its currency weak, and also putting Japan on notice [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
  22. West in general and America in particular have maintained an astonishing silence about the existence of a vast Israeli nuclear weapons program. It's an open secret in the entire world that Israel possesses dozens if not hundreds of atomic bombs, but America carefully never admits or mentions this. America also blocks all/any efforts in the UN to make the Middle East a nuclear weapons free zone. What's more, America obsessively barks that Iran's nuclear energy program is a cover for a nuclear weapons programs and tries forcefully to harm this program, and America also barks regularly about North Korea's legitimate/sovereign nuclear ambitions, but hypocritically it never acknowledges Israel's undeclared program. Itself, America continues development and testing of modern or tactical nuclear and thermonuclear bombs even as it simultaneously preaches non-proliferation and nuclear-disarmament to the rest of the world, but in case of other nations it imposes harsh unilateral sanctions, threatens war, criticizes, and so on. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16]
  23. [DRAFT] Germany selling subsidized submarines and warships to Israel, instead of boycotting and sanctioning Israel for its endless crimes on Palestinians [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
    1. Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) is intended to stop the proliferation/spread of missile and UAV technology, but it's by definition biased because it does nothing to disarm those who already have these technologies. Why allow nations which already have these technologies to keep [and further develop] them, while denying others the right in the name of nonproliferation? [link 1]
    2. Similarly, the Non-Proliferation Treaty [NPT] is biased by definition since nations which already possess truckloads of nuclear weapons are not required to disarm themselves [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
    3. America's RAND wants nonproliferation of hypersonic weapons, but it's alright if America itself researches into and develops this stuff. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      1. US cruelly bombed the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with atomic/nuclear weapons, brutally killing or critically injuring millions of innocents Japanese. It thus holds the distinction of becoming the first and so far the only country to have ever used atomic bombs. The damaging effects  - genetic defects, birth defects, mutations, etc. - continue to this day. On the contrary, America has always tried to paint and project these barbaric bombings as justified. Such arrogance and cruelty. Further, the so-called "international community", a bunch of White pussies who call themselves the "civilized" and "free" world, regularly lick America's ass and have failed to condemn or punish the US for this barbaric act. Hitler they'll condemn. US they won't. No sanctions on America. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        1. US knows that its cruel bombings of Hiroshima, Nagasaki are a grave threat to its claim of higher moral standing compared to other nations, so US constantly tries to plant a narrative in the world that these bombings were required to "end the war", and hence justified, and eventually effective in "ending the war". Measures to spread this heartless narrative include issuing postal stamps. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        2. US HAS NEVER APOLOGIZED FOR ATOMIC BOMBINGS OF JAPAN: US has never apologized to Japan, or to the people killed/injured, or to the world for the use of atomic weapons on civilian populations, killing countless. There hasn't even been a non-apology "regret" from US. [link 1]
      2. 2019 Iran floods and US sanctions: US sanctions blocked humanitarian / medical aid from being sent to Iran, but US continued to keep the sanctions in order to inflict maximum harm upon the Iranian people. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
      3. Coronavirus / COVID-19: As of Mar-Apr'20, US did not remove sanctions on Cuba, Iran or Venezuela, leading to world's banks/companies/organizations being unable to supply masks, ventilators and other medical supplies to these nations' patients. In fact the US arrogantly said that this is the "right" time for sanctions and more sanctions. Only cruelty can explain this behavior by US.
        1. In fact, US increased sanctions on both Iran and Venezuela in order to increase the likelihood that the disease would cause fall of these nations' governments. Cruelty of the US knows no bounds.
    2. Backstabbing so-called "allies/friends", while making loud public claims, gestures, overtures of supporting them "steadfastly".
      1. Forced Israel to abandon/cancel its Lavi fighter plane project. [link 1] [link 2]
      2. Tried to stop the Concorde project. No one else must acquire / develop / sell advanced technologies and products. [link 1]
      3. Barred South Korea from exporting T-50 trainer-fighter planes to Uzbekistan [while itself spending hundreds of billions on new fighters and other weapons, and while talking loudly about open markets and free competition]. [link 1] [link 2]
      4. Denying India access to cryogenic engine technology. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    3. CAREFUL USE OF DIFFERENT LANGUAGE / TERMINOLOGY / TERMS / TONE / WORDS FOR DIFFERENT ENTITIES FOR SAME TOPICS: If an identical thing is done by [or to] entity A and entity B, depending on the foreign policy goals of the US, it's possible that via the use of specific words, phrases, etc., it depicts A as a victim and B as an evil perpetrator.
      1. In Jul'19, when Britain seized an Iranian crude tanker, Western press used the word "apprehend", whereas when subsequently Iran seized one/two British tankers, the same press used the words "seized" or "seizure" for Iran's action. A clear case of bias, with the underlying objective being portraying Iran and its actions as evil, and Britain's actions as likely complying with some law. [link 1]
    4. US displays hypocrisy and double standards in its discussions about and support to the so-called "rebels" in various nations, depending upon what strategic and tactical ambitions the US has for those nations. In Libya, US supported rebels because it wanted to oust and kill Muammar Gaddafi and steal Libya's oil, among other things. But in Yemen, US is helping to butcher the rebels - and US uses the terms insurgents, militants, militias, terrorists, etc., for the Houthis in order to differentiate these from Libya's rebels - because it wants a certain ruler there. In Syria the US is directly and indirectly funding and supporting terrorists whom US calls "moderate rebels" because it wants to oust and kill President Bashar al-Assad, and steal Syria's oil, among other things. But in Ukraine the US is helping to slaughter the rebels - who're Ukrainian citizens - because it wants to bring Ukraine into the Western sphere of influence, and again, it carefully uses terms such as pro-Russian separatists, Russia-backed separatists, etc., in order to delegitimize these groups in the eyes of the public. [link 1] [link 2]
      1. US doesn't condemn/oppose the puppet Ukrainian government's assault on "rebels", while using terms such as "barbaric", "tyrant", "blood on his hands", "brutal dictator", etc., for Syria's legitimate government and for President Assad [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      2. "‘Stop calling them the opposition’: Russian Foreign Ministry says Navalny team are ‘agents of NATO,’ not legitimate politicians", RT, Feb'21 [link]
      1. US itself recognizes mainland China as the only China and has its embassy there, and doesn't have any legally-valid embassy in or recognition of Taiwan, yet it directly and overtly threatens countries that switch their recognition from Taiwan to China by recalling its ambassadors? [link 1]
    6. DICTATORS - EVEN IF BRUTAL - ARE BETTER THAN UTTER CHAOS AND MAYHEM: West knows this well, but when your real aim - the one you keep secret - is destruction and weakening of the target country, you'll obviously ignore that it's far better that a country be under a dictator - howsoever "brutal" he might be in your eyes - than descend into lawlessness. Applies well to Iraq under Saddam, Libya under Gaddafi, and Syria under Bashar al-Assad. Is Iraq better today than what it was under President Saddam? Libya used to be a rich and prosperous nation, but now it's just a burnt skeleton. Syria has been destroyed back to the Stone Age by blood-thirsty Westerners and their so-called allies. [link 1]
    7. US carefully/cunningly starts using the term "regime" to refer to the governments of those nations where it wants to conduct regime change, and simultaneously starts to refer the leaders of these nations as "dictators" or "autocrat" or even "despot", instead of "President". Examples include Libya during Gaddafi, Iraq under Saddam, Syria under Assad, etc. US tries to deligitimize a legitimate, sovereign government of a nation by referring to it as "regime". The US news media, always eager to take clues from US officials, wags its tail and quickly amplifies the "regime" message by repeatedly spreading it far and beyond. This is yet another trick in the psycho-tricks book of US.
    8. HEAVY USE OF THE TERM "COALITION" TO INCREASE LEGITIMACY AND TO DIFFUSE AND OBFUSCATE RESPONSIBILITY FOR CRIMES: Both US/West/NATO and US/Western news media carefully use the terms "coalition", "Saudi-led coalition", "Arab coalition warplanes", "Western coalition", "NATO", "Western alliance", "allied planes", "US-led coalition", "coalition air strike", etc., in order to avoid attributing any specific Western/Arab country directly for the frequent criminal acts that these nations conduct globally, such as air or missile strikes on civilians, homes, weddings, funerals, hospitals, schools, etc. The use of words such as "coalition planes struck" instead of "American planes struck", "Saudi planes hit a school", "British planes bombed a funeral", etc., diffuses and obfuscates the responsibility for West's barbaric acts, and effectively "no one is responsible" for these acts. [link 1]
    9. TO INCREASE LEGITIMACY, AMERICA FREQUENTLY MAKES OTHER WESTERN COUNTRIES TAKE CERTAIN INITIATIVES PUBLICLY: America doesn't want it to seem like only it is eager to oppose China/Iran/Russia or that it is alone in pushing its global geopolitical agenda, and that European countries are simply following American orders, so at times it covertly asks other countries to take the lead, to make it look like everyone in the West is independently following a common Western approach based on their "shared values". Hence many times you'll see that diplomatic dwarfs such as Canada or Australia suddenly spring into action and announce something that seems odd for these dwarfs to care about. In reality, to create a chorus and raise the apparent legitimacy of its claims, it's the US which asks these allies/vassals to raise their voices in support of the US position, to make it look like there are several "major" nations which are "concluding" the same thing as America. Because America in particular and West in general never provide any evidence for their bogus claims, making several vassals voice the same thing is a way to raise the legitimacy of that claim.
      1. Uniting for Consensus / Coffee Club: Italy is leading opposition to expansion of the United Nations Security Council [UNSC]? Malta and San Marino are worried about UNSC expansion? All nonsense. It's America which is making Italy and others do the dirty work which it doesn't want to be seen doing itself [working against India, for example]. [link 1]
      2. Russia blamed for NotPetya cyberattack: [link 1] [link 2]
        1. They even themselves accept and publicize that they "coordinate" the blaming of Russia with other gang members. "Likewise, in February, Australia contributed to the coordinated attribution of the ‘NotPetya’ malware to Russia.". [link 1]
    10. CONSTITUTIONAL OR LEGISLATIVE CHANGES OR TREATIES TO TURN "ALLIES" INTO CUSTOMERS / PUPPETS / VASSALS: US has both covertly as well as overtly used the mechanism of forcibly causing changes to the constitution / laws of target nations - whom the US wants to make its vassals - so as to enable US-friendly clauses / laws / pacts / treaties. This way US is able to cover its illegal actions under the cloak of "according to their law". Target nations become powerless, even if they can see that their own interests have been harmed. [link 1] [link 2]
    11. West in general and America in particular conduct testing of their newly developed bombs and weapons by unleashing these on innocents of other nations, under the usual pretexts of "war on terror", etc., with complete disregard for killings of civilians. In effect, they use these other nations as testing grounds and their people as guinea pigs to conduct experiments about the effectiveness of their new weapons.
      1. MOAB dropped in/on Afghanistan, used for the first time, Apr'17. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    12. QQ
    13. [DRAFT] Staggering and chilling difference between the coverage of and reaction to - including the tone - the downing of flights MH17 and Metrojet 9268, by Western news media and politicians. [link 1]
    14. US news media cunningly and carefully uses the words 'claimed', 'concluded', 'confirmed', 'affirmed', etc., very differently for Russia and the West. When Russia reports/says something, even if it provides supporting evidence/proof, US news media always portrays this as "Russia claims", "Russia has claimed", "Putin has claimed", or "the Kremlin claims", etc., but when NATO, senior American officials, the White House, the State Department, etc., say something, US news media quickly reports it as "US intelligence community has concluded", "White House has confirmed", "NATO has reached the conclusion", etc., without scrutinizing it and without asking for evidence/proof. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
    15. [DRAFT] Western news media and politicians have all of a sudden created and popularized/spread this news thing called "fake news" in order to "explain" what happened in the 2016 presidential election, in order to further demonize Russia, and in order to censor and silence those media outlets and those stories that aren't aligned with the propaganda that Western elites/establishment wants to implant in the minds of people [all while giving people the appearance that it's all fully legal, and that it isn't censorship, and that it's all being done for "security" and "to protect Western democracies"]. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    16. US news media has spread fake/false information that there are a huge number of paid Russian "trolls" working in sweatshop-like environment, who write anti-West/pro-Russian comments on Western news agencies' online news articles or on blogs. This accusation is unproven because West hasn't provided any evidence to back these claims [there exist stories that might appear real, however these stories are devoid of any irrefutable evidence and hence can be termed Western disinformation]. This label of being a "Russian troll" is an attempt to silence, shame and discredit anyone who writes anything underneath news articles that the West doesn't like. [link 1]
    17. The International Criminal Court [ICC] is one of West's key tools to pressurize and prosecute/imprison those African rulers whom the West wants to replace with more "obedient" ones - basically another instrument to conduct regime change - under the guise of stuff like LGBT rights, "human rights", etc.. Hence the ICC investigates only African leaders, but doesn't touch barbaric Western killers such as Blair, Bush, Obama, Netanyahu, Cameron, Sarkozy, Hollande, etc. Further, in an important example of double standards and hypocrisy, the US calls for referring other nations - such as North Korea - to the ICC, but it has itself chosen to not be a member of ICC, rejecting its jurisdiction on itself.

    18. [DRAFT] Double-standards with regard to jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice [ICJ] [link 1]
    19. DECLARING AN ISSUE AS BILATERAL WHEN IT REACHES ICJ: America's playbook regarding the ICJ is familiar and predictable. When a dispute goes to the ICJ, America's usual response is that the ICJ should stay out of it because it's a bilateral issue and that the ICJ doesn't and shouldn't have jurisdiction over it. America wants to continue all its illegal activities, such as building a vast military base on occupied Diego Garcia island, without legal opposition to its actions.
      1. Mauritius versus UK, regarding Chagos Islands. [link 1]
    20. Violation of international law against Nicaragua as ruled by the ICJ, and America's unilateral declaration that the ICJ lacked jurisdiction to rule. Further, blocking of enforcement of this ruling in the UNSC through six vetoes, effectively denying Nicaragua any justice [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    21. REPEATED ACCUSATIONS AGAINST INDIVIDUALS/NATIONS WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE OR PROOF: US never provides any supporting evidence/proof for its obsessively regular grand accusations and "conclusions" against men and nations which it considers its adversaries. Instead, US provides only broad/childish/general/unsupported phrases and statements such as "our intelligence indicates..." or "based on analysis of information from a number of sources..." or "we strongly believe" or "we are confident about our assessment" or "our intelligence agencies have concluded" or "we have high degree of confidence" or "we have concluded" or "we've seen the evidence", etc. Further, when pressed to provide concrete/specific evidence/proof, the US always refuses, claiming that it doesn't want to disclose its intelligence-gathering methods and sources, even in the light of evidence that refutes US' claims. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
      1. US frequently accuses China/Iran/Russia of breaking international law, without ever specifying which international law/laws are being broken and how.
      2. US accuses Russia of violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty [INF], without providing any specific point about "how" Russia is overstepping the treaty. [link 1]
      3. MH17 DOWNING USED AS A WEAPON AGAINST RUSSIA: After the MH17 downing took place, US quickly and immediately accused/implicated Russia for the downing, without providing an iota of evidence. As of May'19, when there are calls to provide evidence for Russian involvement in the downing, including from Malaysian PM, US stays silent. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
      4. US and mainstream news media such as NYT and WaPo vehemently accused Russia of interfering in its 2016 election without providing any evidence. Their accusations are full of vague terms such as "senior administration officials", "assessment", "strong belief", "circumstantial evidence", "high confidence", etc. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
      5. US news media has loudly called Assad the perpetrator of the Mar'17 chemical weapons attack in Syria [which was used as a pretext to fire missiles at a Syrian air base], but no US official or news media outlet has provided an iota of evidence to support their claims/"conclusions". What's more, US news media isn't even asking for evidence or questioning US' unilateral military action without having provided evidence first. [link 1] [link 2]
      6. "America accuses without proof, then retaliates, then demands pro-America concessions or steps in order to normalize the situation". [link 1]
    22. SELF-CREATED AND SELF-FUNDED BIASED OUTLETS ARE PRESENTED AS INDEPENDENT, THIRD-PARTY SOURCES: Syrian Observatory for Human Rights [SOHR] and Bellingcat [bell¿ngcat] are just two examples of this [new] approach by the West. These outlets are presented as trustworthy, professional, "investigative" outlets by Western media and politicians. These are given ample coverage in media. Words such as "investigation", "report", "conclusion", "analysis", etc., are used to describe the propaganda excreted by these outlets - rather than terms such as "claimed", "disinformation", etc. - to make it look like these are credible and unbiased investigative outlets. The faeces that these outlets produce is presented as evidence to the public. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      1. One possible reason why West has created such outlets is that as of 2016-2018, West was starting to come under increasing criticism that it doesn't present any evidence / proof to back its tall claims. The West only cited "classified intelligence" or anonymous/unnamed officials in the name of evidence, and this was starting to be questioned. So, it seems, West created these outlets so that weak Western statements such as "Iran is responsible for these attacks, according to classified intelligence.", more credible-looking statements such as "Iran is responsible for these attacks, according to an investigation by the investigative outlet Bellingcat." could be given out. The general public doesn't go out and check what this Bellingcat is, who funds it, whether it's merely a proxy for Western propaganda, etc. The public just thinks that "someone" [credible] has investigated and reached the "conclusion". [link 1]
    23. [DRAFT] Prolific, abusive and likely manufactured use of anonymous sources, such as "current and former US officials", by Western news media, allowing them to present almost any claim as a confirmed fact, without having to name anyone. [link 1]
      1. EXAMPLE: Sep'18 op-ed by anonymous, claimed "senior official in the Trump administration", directly against Donald Trump. Does this person actually exist? No one knows. Whatever was written in that essay, is it real or is it fabricated anti-Trump propaganda from NYT? You have to trust NYT's word. But how can anyone trust NYT's word when it prolifically spread anti-Iraq and anti-Saddam propaganda and helped launch the murderous Iraq War? It's equally or more likely that this is the work of fiction, presented as real in order to harm Trump and his presidency. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]

    24. Accusing Russia of "not doing enough" to de-escalate the conflict in Ukraine, but itself doing absolutely nothing - not even a statement - to stop or slowdown Israel's bombardment and now ground operation in Gaza, 2014 [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    25. American/European diplomats and news media never fail to stress "a Russian-made antiaircraft missile" when they mention the MH17 downing [instead of the neutral "an antiaircraft missile"], but never mention that many/most of those killed in Gaza and elsewhere by Israel, and those butchered in Yemen by Saudi Arabia, including using cluster bombs, and so on, are/were killed by American-made and/or British-made weapons. This compulsive reference to a "Russian-made missile" shows West's desperation to smear and blame Russia, and that too without having to provide any proof. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10]
      1. A clear contrast can be seen in the May'17 coverage by Western news media outlets of the WannaCry ransomware attack. No one in the Western news media - US or Europe - is daring to blame America for the creation of this dangerous tool. They're all quietly pretending as if it's the birthright of US to make such nasty tools. Had it been Russia or China which had created such a tool, and had it been leaked similarly, wreaking havoc globally and endangering even hospital patients, there would've been innumerable universal "calls" in the Western press about how barbaric Russia is, how "irresponsible" an actor it is, how it is a danger to "free societies of the West", how it needs to be "contained", and so on. But they aren't calling out America. They're all afraid to offend US. They're blaming only those who conducted this global attack. None of them is pointing the finger at the designer - America - for creating the tool used by the perpetrators and for America's incompetence in keeping its weapon to itself. It's only Vladimir Putin who are - correctly - pointed finger at the real culprit, America. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7]
        1. To add insult to the injury, some are even asking why America/Americans aren't doing something to stop such global attacks! [link 1]
    26. Despite an international ban on the use of cluster bombs/munitions, the various US-led coalitions continue to use cluster bombs - including in Yemen - mercilessly slaughtering civilians, including women and children. In a stunning display of double-standards and hypocrisy, the Americans have not signed the cluster-ban treaty, yet they vehemently accuse other nations - such as the Syrian government - of using cluster bombs, despite themselves supplying truckloads of such bombs to Saudi Arabia, which then drops these on civilians in Yemen, to no reaction from the US! [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9]
    27. Terming the abduction of *one* Israeli soldier "barbaric" and "outrageous", while saying *nothing* about the murders of 1,300+ people in Gaza [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    28. Inconsistent, selective behavior/reactions to same/similar situations, by Western news media and/or politicians and/or companies, depending upon whether the nation/individual concerned is an ally or an adversary of the US/West. These are excellent examples of double-standards and hypocrisy of the US/West.
      1. Obama quickly expressed grief, outrage and solidarity/sympathy at the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris, but stayed quiet at the downing of a Russian airline's passenger aircraft in Egypt [in sharp contrast to his and West's unending and anti-Putin, anti-Russia reactions at the downing of a Malaysia Airlines plane in 2014], at the killing of 131 civilians in a wedding envoy in Yemen, and at bombings in Beirut/Lebanon a day before the Paris attacks, etc. Other examples of selective grieving of Western people include Iraq War, the destruction of Libya by West, the killing of civilians in drone strikes, etc. The most recent example of West's selective outrage is when Charlie Hebdo published cartoons mocking victims of Italian earthquake, but these losers in the West were all hand-in-hand in supporting this nasty publication when it mocked Islam. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16] [link 17] [link 18] [link 19] [link 20] [link 21]
      2. Simultaneously lecturing Iran about "human rights" and striking billions of dollars of weapons-related and other deals with Saudi Arabia. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        1. Even the American news media uses a restrained and softer tone to describe Saudi Arabia - compared to/relative to the tone and words it uses for Iran - when pretending that it does "call out" Saudi's issues too. [link 1]
      3. A US judge - the same man who previously cleared Saudi Arabia for its alleged/likely role in the 9/11 attacks - order Iran to pay USD 10.5 billion for Iran's "role" in the 9/11 attacks on America. Laughable, but not surprising. This shows that American courts/judges/judiciary are puppets of its military-industrial complex when it comes to cases/rulings involving America's foreign policy "interests". [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      4. Western news media outlets selectively question the absence of consequences/punishment in certain domestic cases, and also point out the lack of "evidence" when politics-related claims are made in domestic cases, thus attempting to build their credentials as fearless and responsible journalistic outposts in the hearts and minds of readers/viewers. Yet these same outposts carefully do not raise any questions about absence of prosecutions/punishments and lack of evidence in cases involving America's murderous wars abroad, such as the Iraq War and Vietnam War. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      5. America and United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea [UNCLOS]: US routinely mentions UNCLOS in its arguments / propaganda against China's claims in the South China Sea [including in Jul'20] - and also against other countries - but the US itself isn't a member of the treaty. So the US doesn't want itself to be subjected to or legally bound by the treaty, yet it wants others to accept the treaty and be bound by it? [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10]
      6. US exhibits blatant double standards when it comes to US placing sanctions on the people and companies/politicians of other countries. While the US harshly and merrily sanctions and punishes citizens of its target countries such as Sudan, Syria, North Korea, Iran, etc., it growls loudly like a dog and doesn't allow other nations to place sanctions on citizens/companies/products of Israel, even when Israel's actions are similar to or worse than the actions of nations on which US has put sanctions. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        1. As of Oct'17, it's good to see that Russia is supporting North Korea, for example by providing it with a second Internet connection. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      7. Independence/secessionist/separatist movements or referendums that suit and strengthen America's/West's foreign policy ambitions are termed legitimate, while those that threaten America's/West's greed are labeled illegitimate. The only work here for America is how to "present" one referendum to the world as valid while at the same time "justifying" another illegal and illegitimate. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
        1. Valid: Kosovo's independence from Serbia [forceful support from US]. [link 1]
        2. Invalid: Crimea's referendum to join/rejoin Russia [forceful US opposition]. [link 1]
        3. Invalid: Elections in Ukraine's Donetsk and Luhansk [vehement US opposition].
        4. Invalid: Catalonia referendum.
          1. As of Oct'19, there are massive protests going on in Catalonia [against Spain, and in favor of Catalan independence], but Western mainstream media is carefully neither giving these protests ample coverage [in comparison to by-the-minute coverage given to Hong Kong protests], nor is the coverage as sharp and critical as of HK protests. All of this has been planned. Spain is one of "their own". China is their enemy. Same thing happening in two different places is being covered and presented in starkly different ways. [link 1]
        5. Invalid: The right to self-determination by Palestinians.
        6. Publicly invalid but privately valid: Referendum by Kurds, 2017.
        7. Valid: Anti-China protests in Hong Kong, 2019. As of Nov'19, US politicians are giving massive and blanket support to HK's protesters, in effect using them as weapons in their perennial fight against China. They're completely - and deliberately - ignoring numerous crimes these protesters are committing, like beating people, destroying property, attacking the police, harming the economy, blockading the airport, and so on. It's almost as if US politicians are having a collective orgasm over these protests. [link 1] [link 2]
      8. Free speech and free expression and "democratic principles" are to be vehemently cherished, protected and promoted, unless it's about boycotting or even criticizing Israel for its decades-old illegal and cruel occupation of Palestine and Palestinian people. In the case of Israel, these so-called Western or American values suddenly evaporate, and condemning Israel has been made a serious crime. Lawmakers from US to France to UK to Canada have introduced and/or passed laws criminalizing the criticism/boycott of Israel. Take this in the context of America's reaction to the Sony film against North Korea, or France's reaction to Charlie Hebdo's distasteful cartoons against the Prophet Muhammad., etc. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        1. Students in the US - American citizens - are being threatened with bans from the campus and even criminal investigations for protesting non-violently against Israel and supporting the cause of the Palestinians. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        2. As of Jul'17, US is trying to criminally outlaw the boycott of Israel. The proposed fines and imprisonment terms are equally stunning. [link 1] [link 2]
        3. As of Oct'17, even hurricane relief and aid funds for Americans are tied to a declaration to not boycott Israel. Just amazing. [link 1] [link 2]
      9. As of Sep'18-Oct'18, US is threatening to sanction India for its purchase of Russia's S-400 system. Yet the same US sells/supplies India's adversary Pakistan with its F-16 fighter planes. In effect - US is telling India that it's okay for US to sell Pakistan advanced fighter aircraft, yet it's not okay for India to buy equipment to defend itself from those jets. What does America think it is? God?
      10. Saudi murder and denials of Jamal Khashoggi: As of Oct'18, US and Donald Trump are openly providing political cover to Saudi Arabia over its likely barbaric murder of Saudi citizen Jamal Khashoggi, inside the Saudi diplomatic mission in Istanbul. America is thanking Saudi and is happy that Saudi will conduct an investigation into this [it's like saying a murder accused will investigate himself]. America is preparing public opinion and also guiding Saudi Arabia on next steps by slowly leaking information to the press that Saudi is going to "admit" that "rogue killers" killed him. It's all choreographed theater, because the sale of billions of dollars worth of weapons is too important to America. The contrast with America's and West's reactions to the alleged/staged poisoning of the Skripals in Salisbury is stunning. It can't even be imagined that America would encourage Russia to investigate the Skripal incident. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10]
      11. Western news media prominently cites deaths of citizens/journalists/workers in those countries which it wants to portray in a negative light. It doesn't similarly highlight killings by USA, UK, etc. For example, to present Turkey and it's new airport in an overall negative light, this FT article mentions deaths of 27 workers during the airport's construction. FT doesn't run prominent or regular articles on murder of probably millions of innocent civilians by America - directly or via proxies - in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen and elsewhere. [link 1]
    29. Both America and Europe regularly claim that they steadfastly support freedom of speech, freedom of expression, individuality, etc. However, when it comes to giving these same rights to Muslims - citizens or migrants - all of a sudden these freedom-loving Western nations start to vigorously and severely restrict the rights of Muslims to live their lives the way they want to. All of a sudden these White Western people start to impose their own cultures and values and their own definitions on Muslims, under the pretext of "integration", "human rights", "national security", "Western values", etc. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      1. France claimed non-negotiable support for unlimited "free speech", "free press" and "freedom of expression" in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo cartoons insulting Prophet Muhammad, but both France and Italy banned a rather mild advert on Christ in 2005, and more. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
        1. When Charlie Hebdo made fun of drowning White Texans, suddenly the love for Charlie Hebdo evaporated from the hearts and minds of Americans. Where did the defence of free speech go this time? [link 1] [link 2]
      2. If a Muslim boy/man doesn't want to shake hands with a female, isn't it his right, you Europeans? But these two-faced Europeans have outlawed the refusal to shake hands - forget their howls about freedom of expression and speech - and imposed strict fines as well. [link 1] [link 2]
      3. France's outright ban on or vehement criticism of wearing of burkinis/burqinis by women, and quite hilariously and ironically this is justified in the name of "decency", "freedom" and "women's rights"! All sane people know the reality, that this is basically an extension of France's Islamophobia and overall racism and xenophobia, disguised as preservation of "national culture and French values". What's more, the French PM says and implies that characterless, promiscuous and shameless French girls/women running around naked on the beaches and on the streets is more French than well-covered, sober girls/women. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11]
      4. A German court forcing [yes, forcing] Muslim schoolgirls to go to swimming lessons with boys, all in the name of protecting Western so-called "freedom" and "tolerance". What a joke. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      5. In the West, gay marriage is allowed [if "marriage" is even an appropriate term for this], but Muslims aren't allowed to practice polygamy. [link 1] [link 2]
      6. Forcing a halal supermarket in Paris to sell pork and alcohol, a veiled attack on Islam and a deliberate attempt to make Muslims uncomfortable and outraged. [link 1] [link 2]
      7. US First Ladies and First Daughters cover their heads with a veil when meeting their Pope but not when in Saudi Arabia. Showing respect for Christian etiquette and values and overtly defying Muslim traditions. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
    30. ATTACK FREE SPEECH IN THE NAME OF FREE SPEECH: It's interesting to see how in the name of free speech and respect for divergent points of view, people's free speech itself is attacked! An example illustrates this, and the general working principle is similar to this example. When one Professor Randa Jarrar expressed her happiness at the death of Barbara Bush, who, she correctly said, had "raised a war criminal", chaos ensued. Her freedom of speech was attacked and deemed unacceptable in the name of freedom of speech! In telling Professor Randa Jarrar to have "respect and empathy for individuals with divergent points of view", her own divergent point of view is being disrespected! This same general principle applies whenever elite Americans or Europeans attack those whose words they don't like. [link 1]
      1. "Professor Jarrar’s expressed personal views and commentary are obviously contrary to the core values of our University, which include respect and empathy for individuals with divergent points of view, and a sincere commitment to mutual understanding and progress." [link 1]
    31. Whenever American politicians or military folks talk about the "costs of wars" or that America has been waging worldwide, they just don't touch the hundreds/thousands/millions of innocent foreign civilians and/or soldiers mercilessly butchered by America in the relentless pursuit of its foreign policy goals. They only bemoan Americans and American soldiers, as if only the lives of Americans/American soldiers matter. Even the news media frequently does the same - op-ed articles penned by big shots in outlets such as NYT, WSJ, etc., focus only on American losses of life - like in Vietnam - and quietly yet shamelessly do not turn the spotlight on the cruel slaughtering of innocent people by American men and machines. Sometimes it feels as if in their recollections of their wars, the Americans think of themselves as the victims rather than the perpetrators. Even Hillary Clinton, the cold-blooded heartless bitch, publicly talked only in terms of lost Americans about Libya, not touching the utter death and destruction that America has brought to this once-prosperous nation. For this cheap bitch, killing a lot of Syrian civilians so that America can remove Assad is merely one of the "complications". [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11]
      1. Similarly, any discussion in American news media about the negative effects of spying and illegal data collection by the NSA is only about how the rights of "millions of innocent Americans" are violated, while implicitly implying that foreign people are like dumb sheep, who and whose rights do not matter [or even exist]. [link 1]
      2. Americans do detailed, emotional news stories about even small-sized incidents within the US. Americans' comments and reactions on such stories are full of emotions, sympathy, etc. But when Americans kill foreign citizens in dozens, hundreds or thousands, they do only short-sized stories and summarize their reactions as "collateral damage" and "we'll investigate". [link 1]
    32. [DRAFT] Vietnam War, and subsequent attempts to rewrite history and whitewash American crimes, including by remembering only the lost American lives. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    33. Multiple nuclear tests by the British, in Australia - with the permission of White Australians - causing significant and irreparable harm to the native people of Australia, the Aboriginal Australians. But why would White man care? So what if the natives are also Australian citizens? They aren't White after all, so their value is as much as an insect for the Whites. And of course, the British claimed that the tests posed no threat to the Australians. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
    34. Cruel, unethical and blatantly illegal "depopulation" of native people of Chagos Islands/Diego Garcia, et al., by UK, at the "request" of its whip-wielding master America, to serve the insatiable needs of America's military-industrial complex. And this is the same US which publicly howls about human rights and the "responsibility" to "protect the civilians" at the top of its voice. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12]
      1. "In November Britain extended the US lease over Diego Garcia until 2036, and pledged £40m in compensation to those evicted. It said the islanders could not be resettled because of security and economic considerations." [link 1]
      2. "The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said on Wednesday that the Chagossians would not be allowed to return “on the grounds of feasibility, defence and security interests, and cost to the British taxpayer”." [link 1]
    35. WAIT OUT UNTIL THE VICTIM GENERATION DIES OUT: The West - especially US and UK - have shown that they employ this technique to turn actions/events in their favor. For example, UK forcibly evicted native inhabitants from Chagos Islands / Diego Garcia, and dumped them in other places, with no right to return to their homeland. Now, UK is refusing to return these islands to the original inhabitants, quietly waiting for years to pass by and for these natives to die out, so that their next generations aren't as emotionally attached to the islands, but are rather mentally connected to wherever they live now. Once the original islanders are all gone, there will be nobody left to demand the return. [link 1]
    36. [DRAFT] Mass genocide of Native Americans by European colonizers, including forced change of culture, murders, displacement, etc. And today these occupiers of European descent claim - using racist and xenophobic social media hashtags such as #MakeAmericaWhiteAgain - that they are the true inhabitants of North America and that Muslims should be banned [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7]
    37. [DRAFT] Continued occupation of the colonial territory of French Guiana by France, and also elsewhere by France and several others. In effect, this means that the era of colonialism/imperialism is still alive, breathing, and kicking today, as the White colonizers haven't ceded the seized territories to the natives and original owners. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
    38. [DRAFT] Murder of native people of Australia - the Aboriginal Australians - by European colonizers [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
    40. SYSTEMIC DISCRIMINATION, RACISM, XENOPHOBIA IN USA: Targeted at Arabs, Asians, Blacks, Chinese, Hispanics, Indians, Muslims, Native Americans/American Indians, etc., by White Americans, including by the American police and predominantly-White juries at courts. Isn't just about the "outsiders" who are in America on visas, but also directed at American citizens. White police officers routinely murder unarmed/non-dangerous Blacks and are routinely acquitted. Rampant xenophobia extends even to foreign languages such as Spanish. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9]
      1. Extends to American-made software and online services also. [link 1]
      2. To Spanish language. [link 1]
      3. Stark difference in showing photos of dead bodies, crying women, etc., in Western newspapers, depending upon whether the victims are Asians/Indians/Africans/Blacks or Westerners. [link 1]
      4. In Feb'20, Donald Trump publicly expressed his anger over a non-English / non-American, South Korean movie in Korean language - Parasite - winning the Academy Award for Best Picture [Oscar]. Their hatred for anything not American or not English extends even to art. [link 1]
      5. CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19 / WUHAN VIRUS / CHINESE VIRUS: As of Mar'20, Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo, and some American officials are repeatedly, deliberately, forcefully, and arrogantly pushing the terms "Chinese virus" or "Wuhan virus" or "Chinese coronavirus" rather than the WHO-approved term COVID-19, both in order to globally smear China and to deflect the blame for the crushing effect of the virus on the US - resulting from a lack of timely government action - on to the Chinese, in line with domestic political considerations as well as larger geopolitical goals. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        1. Even any humanitarian aid / help being sent to affected nations / continents - to Italy, Iraq, Spain, Peru, Japan, Serbia, Africa, etc. - by China, Cuba or Russia is being spinned negatively by Western media as the sort of self-serving transactional diplomacy that the USA itself indulges in all the time. Western press is making heavy use of these terms to paint this help in a negative/malign light - "Russia seeks to exploit EU", "seizing an opportunity", "seize low-hanging fruit", "political goals", etc..

        2. As of 26-Mar-20, it has been revealed that - even as COVID-19 is out of control in the US - US is still obsessed the issue of pushing the name "Wuhan virus", so much so that they tried to push it via G7, and received fierce opposition from everyone. US is such a cruel animal that instead of focusing its energy on taking support of China to control the fire in their home, they're more focused on their nasty geopolitical games. Only the virus will bring them to their senses now. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
      6. Tom Cotton calls slavery a "necessary evil", Jul'20: Deep racism and a desire and fantasy to enslave Blacks remains well-entrenched in the minds and hearts of these Whites. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    41. America has no regard for United Nations or the United Nations Security Council [UNSC]. It has not only repeatedly acted unilaterally, invading and destroying other nations in defiance of the UNSC, but it has also questioned and mocked UN itself.
      1. 1999 US-led NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, resulting in killing of hundreds of civilians, and large-scale destruction of infrastructure and industries. This marked the beginning of unilateral NATO/US invasions of other nations, working outside the UNSC. [link 1] [link 2]
      2. In Sep'17, US President Donald Trump made a complete mockery of the UN by threatening to "totally destroy North Korea", in front of the entire world, at his first ever speech at the United Nations General Assembly. This wasn't accidental. This was a deliberate, well-scripted US move to challenge and provoke the world that the US is above and beyond UN Charter and international law. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      3. In Dec'17, US openly and publicly threatened other UN members right from the UNGA podium against voting against the US in the upcoming UNGA vote on Jerusalem.
      4. In Dec'17, US tried to choke and suffocate the UN by forcibly reducing its budget under the pretext of "discipline" and "accountability". In reality, US wants to asphyxiate the UN because forums such as UN that give power to other nations are not liked by the US.
    42. Even the United Nations [UN] is not immune to "pressure" from influential member countries. UN acknowledged in Jun'16 that it removed Saudi Arabia from a blacklist because of immense blackmailing/pressure/threats from the Saudis - and possibly the US - that they would stop funding the UN. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
    43. No matter how much Western nations cry against use of cluster bombs, and nuclear or nuclear-related weapons, these same NATO nations used cluster bombs as well as several tons of bombs laden with depleted uranium in this bombing campaign, thus continuing to have serious negative effects on lives even today. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    44. West - both Americans and Europeans - is trying bit-by-bit, piece-by-piece to legitimize and hence indirectly recognize Kosovo by inviting it at UN events as if it were a country in itself, giving it recognition via Academy Awards/Oscars nomination, by supporting visa-free travel to EU for Kosovans, by getting mainstream news media articles published that talk about Kosovo as a European country, and by giving it membership in sports organizations such as UEFA, FIFA, etc.. All of this in order to harm, irritate and weaken Russia. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16]
    45. [DRAFT] Outright denial or indirect recognition of Armenian Genocide by several Western news media outlets, support to those adverts that deny this event by outlets such as WSJ, and an absence of direct recognition of this mass-murder even from the American President Barack Obama - contrary to his campaign promise and in order to lick Erdogan's/Turkey's *** properly - underscoring the fact that America and its evil partners will eagerly rewrite history and resort to outright lies in order to support its military alliances, no matter how repulsive these are. This is in direct and stunning contrast to the position and actions of the West with regards to how people can report/talk about the Holocaust - denying it is outlawed and is promptly/severely punished and these rulings are strongly enforced, thus clearly revealing the double-standards and hypocrisy of West. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10]
    46. American and European leaders have repeatedly emphasized the term "democratically elected government" in their crafted responses to the coup attempt in Turkey in 2016, quietly suppressing the obvious fact that Erdogan is effectively ruling Turkey like a dictator, and that he has swiftly converted Turkey into a presidential system from a parliamentary one, in order to control the entire nation like a king. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
    47. There's a possibility that 9/11 was an "inside job", with several experts questioning the official narrative about the destruction of the World Trade Center towers. [link 1]
    48. PATTERN OF USING FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS, PLANTED "EVIDENCE", PLANNED PROVOCATIONS, ALL TO CAUSE OR JUSTIFY UNILATERAL WARS: There is precedent that US routinely creates / fabricates / plants so-called "evidence" via false-flag operations, and these are used to justify various forms of interventions - economic sanctions, military strikes, even outright wars.
      1. US government and its controllers in the military-industrial complex need wars so much that they can go even as far as attacking their own citizens in order to falsely blame an enemy, in order to get sufficient pretext to start a war [Operation Northwoods]. [link 1] [link 2]
      2. Gulf of Tonkin incident. [link 1]
    49. COVERING FIRE / SUPPRESSIVE FIRE TO DISTRACT ATTENTION FROM MISDEEDS: Like covering/suppressive fire used in real battles, the West and especially America frequently uses a mix of purposely timed large announcements and/or staged, false flag operations in order to distract the world's attention from America's crimes/misdeeds, and/or to create a pretext for launching an attack/invasion/war on another nation.
      1. In Syria, this has happened quite frequently. Whenever there has been high amount of media coverage of enormous killings by Americans of civilians in Iraq's Mosul, miraculously, around the same time there has been some sort of "chemical attack" somewhere in Syria. News media coverage has quickly shifted to this "chemical attack", and the focus on American slaughtering of civilians has gone away. This is not a coincidence. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      2. As of Oct'18, just as the Saudis [finally] announced their seemingly-absurd theory for their murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and just as disbelief/skepticism about this theory started to pour in from various corners, Donald Trump almost-simultaneously made the large announcement that US would leave the landmark INF Treaty with Russia, as a sort of covering fire for the Saudis. As expected, the INF story is at this very moment fiercely competing with the Khashoggi story for attention on the homepages of news media websites, thus sharing/suppressing the attention the Khashoggi case gets, giving the Saudis much-needed breathing room. It's all planned to fool the public. [SEE RB 68]
    50. [DRAFT] A judiciary which is also deeply partisan and thus pre-bought/pre-sold, including America's Supreme Court [link 1]
    51. The FBI is disregarding constitutional/judicial guidelines and legal interpretations given to it when it comes to the limits on how much information the FBI can ask for using NSLs, and is producing its own interpretations of laws and acting according to these, in defiance of the law of the land. FBI is also being a complete black box about its actual annual performance - likely in order to keep the funding flowing and growing. [link 1] [link 2]
    52. [DRAFT] Secret courts, secret laws - with secret interpretations - debated in secrecy, away from the eyes of the public. [link 1] [link 2]
    53. In an open display of the desire to skirt laws and resort to the same kind of actions that are used by terrorists, calls are frequently made in America to keep terror suspects out of the American judicial system, so that they aren't offered the process/protections that are followed in US courts. This is a pretty amazing thing to observe. That some proclaim that trying terror suspects in US courts puts America and Americans at risk is nothing short of hilarious. It is, in reality, a call and a desire to perform all sorts of torture techniques and other cruel actions on terror suspects without technically violating US laws. [link 1] [link 2]
    54. EXTRATERRITORIAL APPLICATION OF DOMESTIC US LAWS / REGULATIONS: With full disregard for both international law and for the sovereignty of judiciary and citizens of other countries. Curiously, when another nation asserts its right to apply its local laws globally - including on America and its citizens - the US and its corporations vehemently resist. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9]
      1. US is trying to pass a bill, as of May'17, which would "allow" the US to inspect ports and/or vessels in Russia, China, Iran and Syria, on the pretext of prevention of shipment of weapons to North Korea. And America thinks that it can pass such a "law" in its legislature and that it somehow then gets the right to do these inspections inside other nations! This level of arrogance is frankly unprecedented. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9]
      2. Using a Sep'18 domestic law banning slaughter of cats and dogs for meat to attack China. Desperate, really desperate. "Dogs and cats are meant for companionship and recreation. Tragically, more than 10 million dogs are killed for human consumption every year in China.". Who in the world is America to decide which animals are suitable for meat and which are for recreation? Is America God? "There is no place in our compassionate society for these practices. This bill is a reflection of America's values, and sends a strong message to all nations that we will not stand for this inhumane and cruel treatment...". It's laughable when America calls itself a compassionate society, and talks about its "values". Killing millions of pigs and cows and chicks and goats is alright, but not cats and dogs because you can use this card to attack China, and to claim some kind of moral superiority? Pathetic. [link 1] [link 2]
      3. EXTRATERRITORIAL LAWS / JUDICIARY AS ECONOMIC WEAPONS AND AS NATIONAL INCOME SOURCE: Extraterritorial case against Alstom under "Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)", leading to a huge fine, executive jailings ["Le Piege Americain" OR "The American Trap"], and ultimately a buyout of Alstom by America's GE rather than by China's Shanghai Electric Company. The case and the fine was likely designed to prevent the company from going to the Chinese, to weaken it, and to get it bought by America's GE. Similarly, FCPA cases have been used to milk hundreds of millions of dollars (each) from various foreign companies like Russia's MTS, even as the US itself uses several coercive measures to win commercial contracts, including via its embassies. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
        1. FCPA is also used to create an uneven playing field, so that American corporations can use all sorts of bribes to win contracts with impunity, while foreign companies doing the same thing are punished heavily. The objective is to handicap foreign companies and make US companies gain the upper hand. [link 1]
      4. INTERFERENCE IN OTHER COUNTRIES' DOMESTIC TAX POLICIES: In Jul'19 America has announced an investigation into a plan by France to tax technology companies. US is playing the victim here, claiming that the proposed French tax law "unfairly targets US technology companies", whereas in reality the tax isn't specific to US companies, and is non-discriminatory. US has threatened to impose trade tariffs on French products in retaliation for this proposed domestic tax law, a clear example of the use of import tariffs as economic weapons, and also yet another example of America's extrajudicial interference in the domestic government policies of other nations. [link 1]
      5. US CONGRESS HEARINGS ON KASHMIR, NOV'19: By holding such sessions on other countries' internal affairs [instead of on US' own crimes - e.g., Guantanamo Bay], US politicians try to give the impression to the world that they have some sort of jurisdiction over the entire rest of the world. The purpose behind such hearings isn't the people of Kashmir - US politicians give a damn to them. It's purely to strengthen the image of the US on the world stage, and to try to tame and harm others. [link 1]
      6. HONG KONG HUMAN RIGHTS AND DEMOCRACY ACT OF 2019: [link 1] [link 2]
    55. JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING IS THE LAW OF THE LAND DOESN'T MEAN THAT IT ISN'T ILLEGAL INTERNATIONALLY: US officials and politicians frequently state things such as "US is obligated by law to protect Taiwan and to supply weapons to it...", "US President is required by law to sanction those nations which buy weapons from Russia in significant quantities...", and so on. General point being that US purposely gives a false coat of legality to otherwise illegal and criminal actions by cloaking those actions under some sophisticated-sounding "Act". As far as foreign policy is concerned, there's usually bipartisan support in the US whenever it comes to issues such as bombing some oil-rich country, overthrowing the government in some unfriendly country, putting more sanctions on Russia, sanctioning nations such as Cuba/Iran/Venezuela, harming China, etc. US politicians pass laws related to these issues, even though those laws are illegal under international law. Once a particular Act is passed, US politicians are then able to vehemently claim that a particular action by the US is mandatory now because it's a US law, thus giving this false appearance that the US isn't acting illegally or recklessly or outside the framework of international law, but that it's "simply following the law of the land". The onus is thus shifted to a mathematical, non-living being - local laws. Not that simple.
      1. "Still, the F-16 sale would represent a shift by the U.S., which is obligated to sell “arms of a defensive character” to Taipei under the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act." [link 1]
    56. One of the most bizarre yet hilarious things about America is that in the matters of international crimes committed by Americans on foreign soil, America likes to investigate itself! America wants the world to believe that it investigates such crimes - like the barbaric American bombing of a MSF hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, or the barbaric bombing of hundreds of civilians in Mosul, Iraq - thoroughly, impartially and promptly, and that its own courts and its own judicial system are supposed to hold precedence over foreign/international courts. Not surprisingly, America never finds itself much guilty, or as much guilty as much others think it is, and more often than not, America pronounces itself not-guilty. No wonder no one was put behind the bars or electrocuted or hanged for barbaric and heinous American crimes such as the Iraq War, the Vietnam War, etc. And let's not forget, America routinely resorts to lies, untruths, and misreporting of actual events in order to justify and build support for its actions. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11]
      1. US in particular [and West/NATO in general], always severely under-reports the number of civilians that it kills in its wars and invasions abroad, likely to contain the outrage that would result if US officially admitted to mass-murders of innocents. The difference between official US figures and what's claimed/reported by eyewitnesses, NGOs, and other third-party sources isn't small, it's always staggering. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      2. As of Oct'18, US has asked Saudi Arabia to investigate itself over Saudi's killing of Jamal Khashoggi. No such offer will be given to Iran or Russia though. Standards must never be the same. [link 1] [link 2]

    60. RAPES AND GANG RAPES: Western armies, especially American but also British and others [Australian, Canadian, etc.] have been merrily conducting mass rapes and gang rapes in each of the countries in which the Americans have been waging wars over the last several decades - Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, and others. Not just married or unmarried young women, these soldiers haven't spared even pre-teen and teen girls. [link 1] [link 2]
      1. Vietnam [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      2. Iraq [link 1]
      3. Sometimes it appears that one of the unspoken reasons why Americans go to war is to be able to conduct large scale rapes of exotic females, as a sort of entertainment for US soldiers - something that no one can speak officially about.
      4. It's to be noted that not too many with-evidence examples exist of rapes by Western soldiers. But it's only because these armies don't allow filming, don't allow journalists, and usually kill civilians/women who can obviously not speak after they've died. The point being that American soldiers go to great lengths to hide their crimes from the world. Statistics, extrapolation and anecdotal evidence are required in such situations.
        1. Further, America in particular has tried to erase the perhaps tens of thousands of rapes committed by its men on foreign females. [link 1]
    61. A focus only on the wastage of taxpayer money, and on the fueling of anti-American sentiment, and not on the barbaric and inhumane treatment given to dozens of men, when discussing Guantanamo Bay [link 1]
    62. [DRAFT] Extraordinary renditions and torture by proxy [link 1] [link 2]
    63. [DRAFT] Extremely-long solitary confinement in the US, effectively a barbaric and inhumane form of torture [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
    64. [DRAFT] Pentagon Papers [link 1]
    65. US hacked North Korea's computer networks for years, but when a US company got hacked, US blamed North Korea without providing evidence, and used its unilateral blame to impose further sanctions on the already-impoverished nation, 2014-2015 [link 1] [link 2]
    66. [DRAFT] Creation/support of/to al-Qaeda and many other hardcore terrorists and terrorist organizations - financial, diplomatic, political, intelligence as well as military - in order to later justify funding to the military-industrial complex to eradicate the same self-created extremists, and also in order to carry out regime change as well as other destabilizing operations around the world. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
    67. REGIME CHANGE OPERATIONS ALL OVER THE WORLD: Covert and even overt - using all sorts of means, including coups. Several dozen countries have been the targets. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]

      7. UKRAINE, 2014: [DRAFT] Regime change in Ukraine, 2014, and severe destabilization elsewhere over the last many decades, including via direct or indirect weapons support to terrorists or terrorist groups. Further, the West wants to control and exploit Ukraine's vast resources as well as its aviation and weapons knowledge under the pretext of liberating it from Russia's sphere of influence and making it enter the European orbit. America especially and the West in general plot destabilizing revolutions/uprisings in all those nations whose leaders refuse to bow down to the outrageous demands of Western leaders. Examples of America's/West's regime change operations include the Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8]
        1. ‘Same kind of politically fixed evidence used to justify Iraq war’, RT, Sep'14 [link]
      8. Venezuela, Sep'17, Nov'19: US regime change operations are currently fully underway in Venezuela. When the US publicly says that sanctions on Venezuela are intended to "deny the Maduro dictatorship a critical source of financing to maintain its illegitimate rule", it should be corrected to read as "deny the Maduro dictatorship government a critical source of financing to maintain its illegitimate rule". Now it suddenly becomes clear that the US is basically talking about overthrowing the Venezuelan government in order to install a more compliant and profitable one. To make its actions seem legitimate, US throws in terms such as "Maduro dictatorship" and "illegitimate rule" in its statements. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        1. Venezuela, Mar'20: In a desperate attempt to milk the coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic to try to finally crush the already pressurized Venezuelan government, US charged Nicolas Maduro with narco-terrorism, and also issued a bribe / bounty award. The whole world can witness a desperate regime change attempt unfolding. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      9. BOLIVIA, NOV'19: [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
    68. USA CREATES AND POPULARIZES SYMBOLS / ICONS TO REGULARLY DEFAME ADVERSARY NATIONS: USA picks a person or an event/incident  and gives heavy news media coverage to him/her [channeling the global dominance of US news media complex], and this coverage is carefully crafted so as to send a negative and destabilizing message about the target country/person, while raising the profile/quotient of the US. Western journalists suddenly start sympathizing with this person or event/incident as if he's/she's a member of their families, and they do videos, send out tweets, create posts on Facebook, write prolifically, including by creating Wikipedia articles, and sometimes even scholarships are created by universities! They don't, however, ever write anything about the millions that US butchers each years. And crucially, as mentioned above, America does not allow its own bombings, drone strikes, missile strikes, and other murderous operations to be recorded / photographed / videographed by cameras, because it knows that this could result in "symbols" and "icons" getting created, which would damage America's carefully-orchestrated global moral standing and inhibit its ability to wage wars with complete impunity.

      4. Afghan Girl [Sharbat Gula] [link 1]
      5. 1989 Tiananmen Square events and the "Tank Man": West in general and America in particular have ensured that every year there are news stories on this [via their "free" news media], so that the West can make itself look morally superior, so that China's image can be damaged globally, so that the Chinese political leadership can be attacked, among other goals. Does the start of America's murderous Iraq War each year attract similar coverage, even though the killing toll in it has probably been hundreds or thousands of times? [link 1]
      6. Joshua Wong of Hong Kong, a US-European puppet used as a weapon against China, 2019. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]

    69. As a matter of its standard national policy, America conducts every imaginable form of abusive, illegal and immoral acts. These include extrajudicial killings, executions, torture, etc. It doesn't allow these misdeeds to be recorded on camera by journalists [and even executes journalists who try to cover these events], and goes to great lengths to keep these misdeeds secret and to destroy/obfuscate whatever little evidence/records exist about these barbaric acts. Further, America outright refuses to reveal internal data/documents, citing its usual excuses of "national security", "confidential methods/sources", etc., or by resorting to shrewd interpretations of laws, and thus hides its brutal actions from the world while making it appear like the crimes never happened. Further, when third-party nations or organizations reveal evidence and/or reports about American crimes, America never prosecutes anyone responsible - even for the crimes that have been unearthed and are backed by evidence. Lastly, even as America protects itself, it simultaneously howls loudly about the human rights records of other countries. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14]
      1. This phenomenon of imprisoning a lot of people from the general public based on their race, and of killing/imprisoning a lot of people of other nations, but not prosecuting or imprisoning "powerful" and well-connected White folks in prevalent not only in America, but also Europe. Case in point is VW's emission scandal. A well-planned scandal of epic proportions, yet no VW executive has been jailed, despite ample evidence proving criminal conduct.
      2. Oct'19: Under the pretext of workers' rights / human rights, US has taken some trade-related steps against Thailand. Such steps could be deemed alright and just if the US' own record with regard to workers' rights - specifically Mexican migrant agricultural workers - was clean. Thailand cannot practically announce reciprocal retaliatory tariffs on the US - citing abuse of Mexican workers - because Thailand is more dependent on US than the other way round. US knows this, and hence these steps by the US aren't about workers' rights, but rather about taking advantage of the Thai dependency for the US' own gain. [link 1]

    71. [DRAFT] Chemical weapons and double-standards [link 1]
    72. US tries to project its repeated and provocative reconnaissance/surveillance/spying missions near/above other nations and their military installations as legal/legitimate/normal by appealing to the frequency with which it has historically conducted these "routine missions" and "routine patrols" without any consequences/costs. Just because threatening actions have been regularly taken in the past by America under the pretext of flying in "international airspace" doesn't give those hostile and provocative acts any extra legitimacy in the future - moral or legal. Just because the US is used to having its ships, planes, submarines, troops and aircraft carriers close to other nations and their bases doesn't mean that the US can continue to freely do this henceforth. An interesting thing to note here is that American news media outlets always complain loudly about the the intercepts by Chinese/Russian aircraft, and present these as dangerous/irresponsible/provocative/unprofessional/unsafe, but never ever question the underlying root cause - questioning and objecting to the continued provocative presence and operations of heavily-armed US military assets near the borders/oceans/seas/spheres of these superpowers. US questions the "close flybys" of Chinese/Russian aircraft, but doesn't question its own "close sailing". [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15]
      1. What's more, if these intercepts are so provocative for the US, how does US evaluate its own bombings and killings in other nations, going on for decades now and having killed many millions? Provocative?
    73. Every once in a while, there comes a call by some American - a military man or a journalist or a politician - to either kill Russians or to justify murder of Russians.
      1. Call on Fox News by a retired US Major General to kill Russians and complete absence of Western news media reporting about this. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      2. Article by a NY Daily News journalist, calling assassination of Russian ambassador to Turkey justified, and even sort of expressing happiness/satisfaction about it. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
    74. [DRAFT] Suez Crisis [link 1] [link 2]
    75. Gross and perennial misuse of IMF and World Bank as instruments of Western, and particularly American, foreign policy:
      1. America and Europe are doing rampant misuse of the IMF and World Bank grants/loans to advance their anti-Russia, anti-China foreign policy goals, for example by changing IMF rules to continue lending to Ukraine. The sole intention of these pro-Ukraine moves is to somehow pluck Ukraine from the sphere of Russia and implant it into the West's womb. What's more, these are also intended to make Ukraine thoroughly dependent on the West, so that it has to prostitute itself to the West in order to serve interest payments. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        1. In Dec'18, a USD 3.9 billion IMF loan was approved for Ukraine, on top of a USD 750 million World Bank guarantee, plus a EUR 1 billion low-interest loan by the EU, so that Poroshenko is able to pay bribes and salaries to Ukrainians, so that the chances of this unpopular puppet's reelection in the upcoming elections increase. West is trying really hard! [link 1]
      2. As of Oct'18 and Nov'18, US is accusing China of putting poor nations in Africa and Latin America in a "debt trap" by giving out loans that those countries will never be able to pay back. It's ironical and curious because the West has been doing at least exactly that and probably much worse for decades, with complete impunity. [link 1] [link 2]
    76. Covert as well as overt attempts by America and Western Europe to create general unrest as well as anti-Russia sentiment in Belarus, in order to pluck it out of Russia's sphere and plant it into West's orbit. The methods are usual - shadow funding to Western-friendly groups, covert supply of weapons, use of NGOs like USAID to "promote democracy", support to protests, and so on.

    77. [NOV'14]: America misuses its three dominant credit rating agencies [Standard & Poor's (S&P), Moody's, Fitch] as economic weapons to advance its foreign policy goals by reducing credit ratings - or by threatening to reduce - of those nations which do not comply with Washington's demands. As a consequence, these "enemy" nations immediately and materially suffer in the form of capital flight and/or costlier loans, among other adverse effects.
      1. US' own credit rating is artificially inflated by these American agencies. Any attempt to downgrade America is met with an "investigation", like S&P suffered in Aug'11. [link 1]
      2. As of Sep'17, it's good to see that there are at least voices being heard to establish an alternative world-class ratings agency by BRICS. [link 1]
      3. As of Feb'19, India's Bharti Airtel's credit rating has been downgraded to junk status by Moody's. Don't naively think that it's based only on financials. This could very much be because Airtel might have refused to not use Huawei/ZTE equipment in its cellular networks [in the context of America's ongoing global push to stop telecom companies from buying/installing Huawei/ZTE equipment]. [link 1]
    78. GDP, GDP PER CAPITA ARE USELESS NUMBERS - ONLY PPP VALUES MATTER: West in general and America is particular deliberately use only "nominal" values rather than PPP values, because they want to show to the public that their adversaries - chiefly Russia, China, Iran, etc. - are poor, small, and overall unworthy nations. If the world's public starts to look at and value only PPP numbers, these "bad" nations will suddenly look much bigger and richer and more important than the West would like you to believe. That will seriously undercut the Western narrative that the "behavior" of these nations is responsible for the "misery" present in these nations. [SEE OID 247Z] [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      1. China is already a bigger economy than the US, as seen in the PPP values for GDP, but America quietly keeps calling itself the world's largest economy because it doesn't want the world to know or believe that it has lost its top position.
    79. America also misuses its dominance of credit/debit card businesses via MasterCard and VISA to further its foreign policy goals.
      1. In Mar'14, these two card companies stopped processing payments for customers of several Russian banks - without warning - due to US sanctions against Russia, thus serving US foreign policy. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      2. As of Sep'17, it's great to see Russia take concrete financial and technological steps to eliminate/reduce its dependence on both the US dollar and on US financial firms, in the form of Mir cards, etc.. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    80. [DRAFT] Misuse of Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch [HRW], etc., as instruments to poke, prick, pinch and hurt Russia. [link 1]
    81. Europe/America misuse the Nobel Peace Prize as an instrument to further their anti-China, anti-Iran, anti-Russia foreign policy, by, for example, giving the prize to defectors/dissidents from these nations [but never to defectors/dissidents from their own nations]. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11]
      1. Everyone knows that Barack Obama didn't deserve the Peace Prize when it was given to him. Further, in retrospect, Obama has been one of the most murderous US leaders, with numerous drone killings taking place on his command in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and elsewhere. He also presided over Saudi Arabia's butchering of Yemen, and the US-fueled destruction of Libya and Syria. And Guantanamo Bay continued.
    82. Misuse and politicization of Olympics, sports, FIFA World Cup, etc., by America/West as instruments to further an anti-Russia foreign policy.
      1. Ban from Olympics. This is an indirect form of sanctions. [link 1]
    83. AMERICAN COMPANIES ABUSE TAX HAVENS TO STEAL BILLIONS IN TAXES FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD: And all of this happens as the US vehemently claims and asserts its role as a strict enforcer of laws. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
    84. [DRAFT] Creation of Panama - forcibly and illegally removed from Colombia - to profit from the Panama Canal. And also as a tax haven, to serve the interests of America's Wall Street and to allow the rich and powerful individuals as well as corporations to secretly carry out financial crimes such as tax-avoidance, money laundering, illegal businesses, etc. [link 1] [link 2]
    85. [DRAFT] Invasion of Panama, 1989 [link 1] [link 2]
    86. West in general [and CIA in particular] operates a vast global disinformation and propaganda complex to reprogram the brains of the people of the world via, among other things, the entertainment industry, including documentaries/movies/Hollywood, music, video games, TV shows, viral videos, and even comics for kids. Efforts are aimed at raising America's profile in the minds of people, spreading negative narratives about America's adversaries, reinforcing already-established incorrect assumptions in people's minds, etc. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      1. "Free" and "authoritative" information resources for the world such as "CIA World Factbook" which disseminate what is essentially propaganda and disinformation/misinformation that supports American foreign policy. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      2. Hollywood movies routinely depict Russia/USSR in negative ways, even going as far as to distort historical facts in movies that are otherwise based on true events. Bridge of Spies, for example, shows that Gary Powers was ill-treated in USSR, whereas Abel was treated with respect in USA. This is utter nonsense but hardly anyone in the public is expected to go home and look up the facts. Especially unlikely when the movie claims upfront that it's inspired by true events and has big names such as Spielberg and Tom Hanks attached to it. The damage to Russia/USSR is done, however, because the minds of the public get brainwashed, not just in USA but the world over as these movies are distributed and watched worldwide. Similarly, Space Cowboys portrays the Soviets as technologically-backward, dependent on the US, thieves of American innovations/technology, and generally incompetent. It also presents Americans as the opposite. Pure propaganda, I would say. [link 1]
      3. Oscar to The White Helmets, in order to give credibility, legitimacy and popularity to the White Helmets, in the relentless pursuit of removing Assad and installing a puppet. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      4. BBC's documentary "Russia's Hooligan Army" is specially crafted to further spoil Russia's and Russians' global image, and to spoil the party and discourage tourism to Russia when Russia hosts the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The intent is to cause as much reduction as possible to the benefits that Russia would get from hosting this major international event, plus to lead to situations that reduce the possibility of future events in Russia. [link 1] [link 2]
      5. CNN's Mar'17 documentary "The Most Powerful Man in the World" is specially crafted to damage the image of Russia, Russians and Putin, and to irritate Trump, while giving false appearance of neutrality and in-depth journalism. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      6. It is noteworthy that CIA finds no issues with its practice of editing plots and/or portrayals in movies in a pro-America way, but when someone else modifies facts in a movie in an anti-America way, it strongly voices its opposition to such distortion of facts and to such negative portrayal. Hypocrites as always. [link 1] [link 2]
      7. Even kids' comics aren't spared. These are frequently used to hardwire political and geopolitical propaganda into the tender minds of kids - kids of both USA and its adversaries - so that they grow up with beliefs that suit the geopolitical goals of America's elites, political class, military-industrial complex, neocons and warmongers. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
    87. American technology companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, Yahoo, etc., are now acting like branches of US foreign policy. These large companies are doing everything they can to further American foreign policy and to crush America's self-declared enemies.
      1. Google altering its search results - promoting some links while demoting/removing others - to steer its users to articles and information pieces that help US and hurt others. [link 1]
    88. CIA [and likely NSA too] brainwashes its employees/workforce using internal deception and disinformation/misinformation/propaganda, in order to whitewash its illegal/immoral activities and to make those activities look more legitimate and positive, in order to avoid/discourage/prevent backlash from its own men. So CIA and NSA deceive not only the "rest of the world", but also their own folks. [link 1] [link 2]
    89. [DRAFT] Continued occupation of Falkland Islands by Britain [link 1] [link 2]
    90. [DRAFT] Continued occupation of Chagos Archipelago by UK, despite international recognition that it's a part of Mauritius [link 1]
    91. [DRAFT] Bugging of Chinese presidential aircraft [link 1]
    92. [DRAFT] Bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, 1999 [link 1]
    93. [DRAFT] Making much noise against the death penalty and trumpeting much about human rights, while  extrajudicially assassinating mere suspects [and also many times as many civilians] using bombs/missiles fired from remotely-operated drones, without making any charges, trials or notices. Then repackaging these inhumane killings as "surgical strikes" on "combatants/insurgents". Further, the few transcripts of drone operators' conversations reveal that these people are cold, heartless fellows who strike and butcher people while feeling as if they're playing a video game. And who can ever forget the barbaric executions of President Saddam Hussein and Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, and the ensuing collective rejoice in the West. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16] [link 17] [link 18] [link 19] [link 20] [link 21] [link 22] [link 23]
      1. In May'18, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop made this statement - "Australia opposes the death penalty in all circumstances for all people.". This is outright false and she knows properly that it's a lie. The same Australia routinely murders or assists in the extrajudicial murders of civilians, innocents or mere suspects on dubious "terror" grounds as a part of the various "coalition" forces that the US uses around the world to bomb whichever country it wants to bomb. [link 1] [link 2]
    94. Western news media outlets, pundits, commentators, politicians, think tanks, and others repeatedly point that Russia and Vladimir Putin are trying to upend the American-led "ruled-based" and "laws-based" and "alliances-based" international order that has been in place since World War II. These so-called experts like to point out that this American-led system of "international security" has brought stability and prosperity to the world. None of these pundits ever point to the dozens of countries invaded and destroyed by the US - directly or indirectly - with a few examples being Vietnam, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan, Yugoslavia, Bosnia, and Panama. Where is the "international security order" for these dozens of victims of America? These pundits won't even mention these countries, because it'll make all of their theories and opinions worthless. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      1. "There is little doubt that Putin’s foreign policy centers on reviving Russia as a major international power, which seeks to undermine the global American alliance that has underwritten international security since the end of the Cold War." [link]
    95. PROOF BY REPEATED, UNENDING ASSERTION: Western governments / news media outlets greatly depend on this. Whatever lie they have to implant in the minds of the people of the world, they present it as a matter of fact and keep repeating it obsessively until it becomes a "common sense" fact which no one can oppose [without inviting ridicule]. They also depend heavily on "Argumentum ad lapidem", quickly and loudly writing-off embarrassing / unfavorable claims or pieces of information as "so absurd" and "repulsive" that these don't even merit a response, thus allowing them to stop covering those claims, virtually extinguishing these from public discussion. [link 1] [link 2]
      1. Obsessively and repetitive use of the terms annexation and invasion - in every article where the word Crimea is mentioned - in a matter-of-fact way, to refer to the reunification/secession of Crimea and Sevastopol with Russia [following a public referendum with high voter turnout], without any discussion or explanation on the appropriateness of the choice and compulsive use of these terms. Further, these nefarious propagandist newspapers just don't make any mention of the very long history of Crimea as an integral part of Russia, or about its "gifting" to Ukraine by Nikita Khrushchev. These omissions are not accidental but are well-planned and fully malicious in intent. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16] [link 17]
      1. Opening paragraph of a Bloomberg article. [link 1]
        1. "Since the annexation of Crimea in 2014, Vladimir Putin’s Russia has, outwardly at least, been one of the world’s most stable and predictable regimes — an assertive authoritarian government propped up by a mix of repression and acquiescence at home."
    97. [DRAFT] Prolific, systemic demonization of Russia by pushing the incorrect/propaganda term "annexed" in the context of the referendum in Crimea, but an astonishing silence and absence of criticism/sanctions for Israel's actual annexation and exploitation of Syria's Golan Heights [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
      1. US never mentions its real annexations, among several others Texas, California and Hawaii. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
    98. Putin-bashing and Russia-bashing are the national pastimes of everyone in the United States - including the news media, think tanks, lobbyists, the political class, as well as many in the general public. Almost every day you will find articles/op-eds in popular American newspapers such as NYT and so-called "reports" in publications by think tanks that are either dubiously critical of Putin/Russia/Russians, or are outright lies and naked propaganda masked as an op-ed or presented without supporting evidence/facts. Almost every day you find articles in Western press that create an exaggerated and false sense of "Russian threat", that trumpet that the current military spending levels are "not adequate", and purposely paint Putin/Russia as the number one enemy of the Western civilization, justifying tens of billions in military spending to keep the West safe. It seems like whenever the Americans - toothless under the crushing load of trillions in debt and powerless before an irreversibly corrupt government that is endlessly funneling billions and billions of public money to the military-industrial complex and other lobbies - need some ego boost, they publish stuff mocking Putin/Russia/Russians in their newspapers, and a collective national rejoice follows. Further, the amount of demonizing of Russia during the 2016 presidential elections in the US is simply unprecedented, to say the least. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16] [link 17] [link 18] [link 19] [link 20] [link 21]
    99. American and European establishment-supported news media outlets [particularly American] routinely spew out fabricated/fake/manufactured "news reports" that appear genuine but in fact are the opposite. These propaganda pieces are directed against either US' usual foreign adversaries - companies or unfriendly politicians of Iran, China, Russia, Syria, North Korea, Sudan, etc. - or domestic entities [like Donald Trump]. None of this is accidental or erroneous. This is deliberate and systemic. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11]
      1. Utterly made-up piece on Kaspersky by Bloomberg. When outright fabrication looks too shameless, even by the low standards of these outlets, these outlets resort to the usual "KGB or Putin link" in order to create FUD about and to hurt world-class Russian companies that are successfully making their mark on the globe. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
        1. As of May'17, the US government too is trying to spread FUD about Kaspersky, in order to financially hurt this world-leading Russian company. They're so obsessed with damaging and destroying Russia that perhaps they don't realize the depths to which they're sinking. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        2. And they finally did it in Jul'17, once again after a Bloomberg story. They wanted some media support before announcing the ban, so it wouldn't look unexpected, so they made Bloomberg do a fake story to "prepare the public's mood" for the then-upcoming ban. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
        3. As of Sep'17, US politicians, intelligence agencies and news media outlets had been working hand-in-glove for some months to create a general perception of doubt and unease about Kaspersky products. When they concluded that they had successfully planted sufficient fear, actual bans by US stores such as Best Buy followed. It was all well-planned in advance. [link 1] [link 2]
      2. NYT, WaPo, etc., vigorously go down the path of such venomous, manufactured propaganda because it results in significant financial [page views] and political dividends/rewards for these nefarious outlets. What's not to like here? [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        1. Probable reason why Western news media outlets routinely publish malign propaganda and get away with it - any corrections/retractions that they publish, if at all, practically never reach those millions of people who read the original, fake versions. These outlets know all too well that there's no automatic/automated mechanism to alert news readers about a major retraction to the stories they previously read [in fact the business of Western news media outlets thrives on the very absence of such a mechanism]. End result - hearts and minds of unsuspecting readers get coated with a strong layer of venomous propaganda, affecting their thoughts and actions in the exact way these venomous outlets intended. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
        2. As of 2018, Facebook will inform its users if they visited content/pages put up by the so-called "Russian trolls", but no one seems to be interested in making a system that informs readers of major corrections/retractions. [link 1]
      3. Claas Relotius. How many more such fake journalists are waiting to be discovered in the Western mainstream news media complex? [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]

    100. There's a general desire / tendency in West to belittle and discredit the innovators/inventors of other nations, and their innovations/inventions, especially if they happen to be Russian or Chinese or in general non-Western / non-White. Typical methods include writing in a "matter of fact" way that the Russians/Chinese stole US/Western military technology, without providing any substantiation.
      1. A May'17 article in FT tries to portray China's C919 aircraft as heavily dependent on Western components [which it indeed is], rather than portraying this first flight as an achievement for the Chinese even if it depends a lot on Western-built components. With the title "Chinese aviation finally takes off with help from the west", FT doesn't even try to hide its anti-China bias. The article has an overall negative bias. [link 1]
        1. "...the Comac C919, has just completed its first test flight after Beijing decided to take a different path: buying parts from European and US aviation companies rather than stealing their technology."
      2. Americans pretend and want to believe and want others to believe that others cannot come up with advanced products / technologies - like they have some sort of God-gifted right on innovation. As soon as someone else makes something good, Amerians quickly start crying "espionage, stolen, theft". An example is China's J-20 fighter aircraft. For this plane, so-called "analysts" of West started asking where did China "acquire" the technologies to build the advanced plane, not leaving any room for original Chinese R&D. Similarly, when Iran tests a missile, Western "experts" ask where did Iran acquire the technology. Can't Iranian scientists develop the technology themselves? We're all humans after all. And as usual, these things are "...according to U.S. officials and private defense analysts." and "...said defense and intelligence officials familiar with reports of the illicit tech transfer.". [link 1] [link 2]
        1. American news media almost always refers to foreign technology companies and/or iconic products in terms of domestic American companies, like calling Yandex the "Google of Russia", Baidu the "Google of China", Youku the "YouTube of China", VKontakte a "Facebook clone", Shenzen the "Asian Silicon Valley", or like calling Hainan "China’s Hawaii", etc. West calling Tupolev's pioneering Tu-144 "Concordski" is another example of how the West tries to discredit companies/products of Russia/China. Such references are belittling and offensive, particularly when the American company in question was a follower rather than the leader/pioneer. WSJ even went as far as to make an unsubstantiated and repugnant claim that Russian special forces are "modeled on" US special forces. Seems like whenever the Americans see greatness outside their own borders - and they frequently do - they desperately seem to want to imagine that the outsiders must've learnt this from them. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11]
          1. Oct'17: "Russia launches its own version of Amazon Alexa with ‘near-human levels’ of speech recognition" [link] and "Yandex introduces Alice, an Alexa-like assistant that speaks Russian" [link].
          2. Western news media outlets call Russia's Ksenia Sobchak "Russia's Paris Hilton". Even Wikipedia has been infected with this. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
        2. As of Nov'18, there is a huge amount of outrage among academics, researchers and scientists in the West over the claimed birth of the first gene-edited human babies. Ethical concerns aren't the only reason for this outrage - they're thoroughly annoyed and angry that a Chinese scientist became the first to achieve this historic feat, and not a white-skinned fellow in a Western country. The outrage would've been much more measured and muted had it been a White Western fellow. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
        3. CHINA'S THREE GORGES DAM - REGULAR NEGATIVE NEWS STORIES: Is West jealous that the world's largest hydroelectric power project is in/by China? West probably wants to corrode the positive impression that this project creates about China in the hearts and minds of the world's people. [link 1]
        4. RUSSIAN CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19 VACCINE SPUTNIK V, AUG'20: A large, coordinated campaign has been launched by Western news media and politicians, giving strongly negative round-the-clock coverage about the world's first coronavirus vaccine launched by Russia. West isn't able to accept / tolerate that Russia developed a vaccine before them, and they don't want Russian to reap the financial, foreign policy and global prestige benefits of this product. Hence the coordinated disinformation campaign employing skepticism, lies, propaganda, doubt-sowing, social-media memes, etc.. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12]
      3. ******************************
      4. Sell deadly weapons to terrorists and criminal countries which knowingly kill civilians: US/Europe regularly and publicly make bold proclamations regarding the need for "non-proliferation" of arms/weapons, the need to "rein in" terrorists by "cutting off" their supply lines, and other crap, yet when it's about reaping dirty profits or about realizing nefarious foreign policy goals, these hypocrite Westerners/Whites - Americans, Australians, British, Canadians, French, Germans, etc. - quietly sell and/or supply truckloads of all sorts of deadly weapons to terrorists as well as barbaric states such as Saudi Arabia and Israel. The issues related to so-called "human rights" quickly evaporate in such cases. Also includes supplying MANPADS to terrorists in Syria. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12]
        1. To add insult to injury, America annually releases a "compliance" report, in which, as expected, it accuses unfriendly nations of violating international sanctions/treaties regarding supply of weapons, while pretending as if its huge supplies of deadly weaponry to terrorists and barbaric nations doesn't even exist. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        2. [DRAFT] In the most stunning example of the genome-deep rot in America - including of their President - the US government is shielding/supporting Saudi Arabia and vigorously lobbying to kill a bill that would allow Saudi Arabia to be indicted and held responsible over its alleged/likely role in the 9/11 attacks on America, thus, as always, choosing oil, business contracts, dollar hegemony, and weapons sales over even the lives of its own citizens. So much for "allies". [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        3. In 2006, UK dropped a bribery-related probe involving BAE and Saudi Arabia, since the probe itself and/or its results would've killed the lucrative sale of billions of pounds worth of fighter aircraft and other weapons to Saudi. What's more, Britain's public statements about cancellation of the probe explicitly - though shamelessly - state that commercial interests were not a factor behind cancellation of the probe. Everyone knows what that means. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      5. It appears that there's a secret deal between the US and Israel about how the US is supposed to publicly respond/react to the activity of expansion of settlements by Israel. In the case of other nations, the US swiftly implements crushing sanctions and uses abusive rhetoric, but in the case of Israel's Jewish settlements, the US has carefully limited itself to occasional, verbal criticism, but absolutely no punitive measures. In the absence of any punishing steps, this hollow criticism is practically useless, and in fact strengthens the feeling that the US is purposely letting Israel bit-by-bit occupy Palestinian territory, fooling the world when US news media uses strong-sounding phrases like "US Slams Israel Again...", but doesn't focus the spotlight on the fact that the US is deliberately doing nothing impactful/meaningful to stop this ongoing illegal activity, leading to the logical conclusion that privately the US is in fact fully supportive of it. Privately, Israeli and US leaders likely share laughs over how they together succeed in fooling the world, signing deals that shower tens of billions of dollars upon Israel, while trapping the world in the illusion of fake criticism that America is "strongly condemning" Israel's settlement activity. This behavior of America is in direct contrast to the crushing criticism, sanctions and isolation that the US obsessively and compulsively applies on almost every other nation over just about anything that doesn't align with America's demands. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
        1. The same can be seen in the relentless slaughter of civilians of Yemen by the Saudis, and the public response of US/UK. White man is publicly "expressing concern" about "growing civilian casualties" and "urging the Saudis" and also "reviewing its support for the Saudis" and so on, but in private its all about dirty business worth billions and deal-making and war profiteering and evil laughter about how they're getting rich off the murders of innocent Yemenis. All of this is pre-planned and nothing is happening by chance. US/UK and Saudis have well-crafted private deals that only occasional/mild public criticism will be done by the former - via newspapers or statements released - irrespective of how many the Saudis butcher, but no deals will be canceled and no sanctions will be enacted and the flow of weapons will continue unabated. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9]
        2. It can be termed only hilarious and also shameful that the UK is trying to float a UN resolution calling for truce in Yemen. After selling the Saudis billions worth of weapons that slaughtered Yemenis wholesale, the UK is now trying to ride the moral horse on the world stage by floating this so-called peace resolution. Typical White man strategy. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
        3. As of Sep'17, US ambassador to Israel said that the settlements are a part of Israel. Shows the true colors and intentions of America. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      6. ******************************
      7. [DRAFT] On one hand the UK talks about peace in the Middle East and the rights of the Palestinians and the need for a two-state solution, and on the other hand it has passed legislation to make it illegal for government-funded institutions and even student unions to boycott goods and services from Israeli companies that operate in the criminal and illegal settlements, something it wouldn't even dream of doing in the case of Russia and Crimea, even though the latter was a democratic secession and not an annexation/occupation. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7]
      8. Prompt and eager condemnations, pronouncements and sanctions as far as politically-charged issues are concerned [which target the usual suspects - China, Iran, North Korea, Russia, etc.], but complete and shocking silence on issues that involve hundreds of thousands of murders. [link 1]
        1. Eagerly passing anti-Russia laws such as the Magnitsky Act - which is in fact only an excuse for defaming and putting sanctions on Russia/Russians -  while keeping a surprising and shameful silence and lack of action on the prolific practice of mass executions by Saudi Arabia. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
        2. Repeated condemnation of referendum-backed reunifications of Crimea with Russia [deliberately using incorrect terms "occupation" and "annexation"], but a complete silence on mass-murders in Iraq, Syria, etc. [link 1]
      9. [DRAFT] Careful, and apparently malign, inclusion or omission of facts and figures by Western news media, under the dubious excuse of newsworthiness - decided unilaterally by these MSM outlets - in order to influence the public's opinion and thus serve the West's foreign policy goals. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      10. American news media in particular and Western outlets in general routinely try to shift the reporting of a damning revelation from something that is embarrassing/harmful to America/West to something that shifts the blame on West's usual adversaries - Russia/Putin, Iran, North Korea, China, etc. Examples follow:
        1. When DNC's emails were leaked by unknown hackers/insiders, pro-Hillary Western media in general and pro-Hillary journalists specifically collectively and quickly started blaming Russia for the leaks, in essence using this blame as a decoy to mask Hillary's criminal acts from the public. Most of the discussion that followed in mainstream news media was about this fabricated/unproven Kremlin/Russian/Putin connection, and not about the actual contents of the leaks, which are/were highly damning for Hillary Clinton and reveal the depths of pond scum in her mind and her criminal actions. Further, when more Hillary emails were leaked, Western news media either chose to simply not report on the contents of the leaks, or started reporting pro-Hillary or neutral points selectively, or once again limited themselves to blaming Russia/Putin/Kremlin for hacking into US systems, in order to distract the public from Hillary's deplorable misdeeds. The most noteworthy thing here is that whatever emails WikiLeaks published, they all contain/contained the truth. But the discussion in the US isn't that the public has the right to know the truth, more so when it's so ugly, but it's about blaming Russia for trying to "influence" the election. Even today, in December, Obama continues to focus on this so-called Russian hacking, and not on the misdeeds and crimes of Hillary Clinton exposed in the leaked emails. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16] [link 17]
          1. When the intelligence community leaked information about Donald Trump, the Republicans started going after those who leaked this information, and tried to divert attention away from the actual contents of the leaks. [link 1] [link 2]
          2. Even in May'17, Hillary Clinton shamelessly blames "the leak" of Podesta emails by "Russian Wikileaks" as one of the two major factors for her election loss, and shrewdly doesn't touch the criminal/near-criminal actions of her and her folks exposed in those leaked emails. [link 1]
        2. In Sep'16, when an unknown group of hackers released damning files from WADA proving the repeated and prolonged use of banned doping substances by American athletes, US news media heavyweights such as NYT and VOA [plus surprisingly even WADA itself!] quickly and collectively started beating the "Russian hackers" drum loudly and repeatedly, without giving any evidence, desperately trying to smokescreen the actual explosive story that banned substances were being used with impunity by American players! [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
        3. When Donald Trump gave an interview to RT's Larry King, Western media like WSJ, The Washington Post, etc., immediately pounced upon this and spinned it and starting beating the "Trump's interview to Kremlin's propaganda TV outlet" drum. Instead of focusing on and reporting Trump's actual message in that interview - because reporting that would make Trump look good and the media look bad. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
        4. American media isn't giving adequate coverage to CIA leaks of Mar'17, and is instead fixated on insulting and spreading FUD about Donald Trump. [link 1]
      11. American news media complex demonizes foreign leaders/rulers as well as entire foreign countries by simply cutting-off direct access to the voices of those countries/leaders/rulers from the public. American dominance of news media consumption ensures that if they remove the original voices of these foreign countries/leaders/rulers from their news media publications, these voices become largely silent and practically nonexistent. They do not report statements/interviews from these countries/leaders/rulers. Instead, they only report - that also selectively - poisoned, distorted and out-of-context stuff about these countries/leaders/rulers, thus creating a demon-like image of these in the minds of [dumb] Americans. It's almost as if these Western outlets are saying that if you want to know about these countries/men, only we will provide you with the information. [link 1] [link 2]
        1. REJECTION BY MSM OUTLETS OF OP-ED SUPPORTING JULIAN ASSANGE, WRITTEN BY UN EXPERT: This op-ed, penned by Nils Melzer [the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment], was unanimously rejected [that is, not accepted for publication] by all mainstream news media outlets [e.g., FT, NYT, WaPo, etc.] to which it was submitted for possible publication, in Jun'19. This is not by chance. The idea is to not let anything come in the way of the story, the utterly false narrative around Julian Assange that has been carefully created by the West over many years, very much with the active participation of these same outlets. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
        2. QUANTITY OF COVERAGE OF HONG KONG PROTESTS VERSUS YELLOW VESTS PROTESTS BY MSM: Western news outlets have heavily reported on the 2019 protests in Hong Kong. These same outlets haven't, however, reported as extensively or as round-the-clock on the "yellow vests" protests in France. The underlying idea here is that by amplifying the HK protests, West's adversary/foe/rival China can be made to look bad on the world stage [and hence these outlets and their stories act as a sort of information weapons], and HK can be destabilized to eventually harm China. Conversely, by not reporting or perhaps under-reporting the French protests, a false appearance can be given to the world's public that the West, as a whole, follows a fundamentally superior governance model [compared to foes such as China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, etc.] and that this model doesn't face the public's opposition, and this model and other things make the West superior to these inferior nations. So by doing lower quantity of reporting about these Western protests, Western media outlets are cleverly able to sail in both boats at the same time - they're able to claim that 'yes we did cover protests taking place in our own backyard', and yet the actual negative impact of that minuscule coverage on the West's global standing is little, especially when compared to the huge impact that these same outlets' round-the-clock daily coverage of HK protests causes. [link 1] [link 2]
          1. As on 1-Oct-19, when you conduct a search for 'hong kong protests' on NYT, it shows 734 search results for the last 1 year date range. However, a search for 'yellow vests france' returns only 283 results for the same date range. The point being that these large Western outlets have a very malicious intent when they cover protests, etc., taking place in their foe nations. [link 1] [link 2]
          2. Similarly, on, from 1-Jun-19 to 30-Sep-19, 'hong kong protests' brings 1333 results while 'yellow vest france' has only 39 results. A difference of ~34 times. This is nothing but anti-China propaganda going on by the West, in the name of journalism and upholding democracy. [link 1] [link 2]
          3. Wikipedia page-views of these two protest movements also show stark difference - with HK page registering much higher view count. Crucially, it's to be noted that it isn't that the public has higher interest in or curiosity about the HK movement. Rather, it's the media which decides what the public should be interested in by amplifying coverage of HK while doing minimal reporting on France/Paris. The public automatically becomes interested in whatever's being reported. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
        3. MALICIOUSLY DONE TRANSLATION AS A WEAPON: A Mar'20 DW documentary named "Coronavirus in China" exemplifies this new weapon. Several  high-rated comments have noted that the translations performed in the video are incorrect/poor, sometimes completely altering the meaning, and giving an overall negative picture of China [e.g., "At about 16:41, when the man said this time the gov is doing well (这次政府做得还是不错的。), their translation is "I don't know ". And this is just one of the obvious tricks by translation in this video. Shame!"]. This does not appear to be benign or accidental, but in fact appears to be a new kind of propaganda weapon created by the West - "poorly" done translations. [link 1]
        4. REPORTING CORONAVIRUS SUCCESS OF ONLY NON-CHINA NATIONS: Started Apr'20. News media is now doing articles on nations which have successfully controlled the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the strategies used, but their articles are only about South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, New Zealand, etc. They don't mention China as a successful nation at all, including by sometimes not even showing China's values in charts/graphs. This is an example of trying to downplay or not report China's success, either out of general jealousy or out of worry of receiving criticism from politicians. They want to portray China in only negative light. [link 1]
          1. As of May'20, now Western media isn't even praising South Korea as much. Now the focus of Western media is on highlighting Germany as some sort of world leader in coronavirus management. There's a tinge of racism in this. Like the Germans are more like the Western world, whereas the Koreans / Vietnamese are Asian nations and hence their success is being diminished purposely. Western superiority and victory has to be shown somehow. [link 1] [link 2]
      12. It appears that Western news media has been given tacit instructions to either not report Russian technological achievements/breakthroughs/developments/innovations, or to report them in a highly negative and distorted light. Otherwise it cannot be just a coincidence that every single time Western media talks about Russian products/technology - for example aircraft, or Russia's space program - they somehow always have something negative to say. They never have any words of praise for Russia's homegrown technologies. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        1. Americans/British routinely call Russian rocket designs "dated" or "old", forgetting that the only way their men can reach the ISS is by begging for seats on Russia's workhorse rockets.
        2. "60 Years After First Satellite, Russian Space Program Faces Struggles". [link]
        3. "60 years after Sputnik, Russian space program faces troubles". [link]
      14. For the last at least few decades, mainstream Western news media outlets - all of which essentially serve as evil arms that support destructive US foreign policy - have regularly, repeatedly, cleverly and vigorously utilized op-eds as a tool to "legally" spew out truckloads of blatant lies, outrageous suggestions and naked propaganda to influence the minds, opinions and ultimately actions of the people of the world, under the shield of plausible deniability that reads something like "It's an opinion article by a distinguished/well-placed individual, and is thus free speech and his own thoughts.". These newspapers know all too well that op-eds fully influence the thinking of the readers, who normally cannot and do not "normalize" the information/propaganda/views presented in the op-ed by being aware of the biases of its author, and the same lies/propaganda coming repeatedly from several different outlets essentially makes most of the general public believe that the lie is in fact the truth. These newspapers cannot publish such vile and hateful suggestions and claims under their own names, so they resort to the "op-ed excuse". Scumbags like John McCain, whose regular disinformation/misinformation rhetoric would be difficult to defend as facts in a regular news article are given ample space to spit out pure poison via op-eds and so-called "guest columns". Also, in order to maximize the propaganda effect/impact of such op-eds, some outlets simultaneously publish some op-eds in more than one language. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8]
        1. A paragraph in a Jul'19 official editorial in FT - "On the issue of law, Iran argues Britain was the first to violate the rules by seizing an Iranian tanker near Gibraltar that was suspected of violating EU sanctions on Syria. But there is a clear difference between Britain’s effort to enforce sanctions against Syria’s rogue regime, and Iran’s retaliatory action against a tanker undertaking legal commercial operations.". FT never told its readers how it concluded that from a legal standpoint, Britain's seizure was legal and justified. Which laws, lawyers, judges and experts did FT consult, and what were their specific answers? It looks like the FT parroted Britain's official statements and presented those as established/undeniable facts. [link 1]
      15. [DRAFT] Unprecedented demonization of Donald Trump and even his family by mainstream American news media, including [and especially] by heavyweights like NYT and The Washington Post, using yellow journalism methods in both ope-eds and regular news articles. Several methods/tactics are being used here - not reporting Hillary Clinton's numerous past and present wrongdoings, supporting and justifying her wrongdoings like the "basket of deplorables" comment, amplifying and criticizing every little or large bit about Donald Trump, whether it be his actions or his words. Plus creating and spreading fear, uncertainty and doubt [FUD] about Trump, humanizing Hillary Clinton by fondly and positively presenting her childhood, her youth, her college life, her family, and so on, as if she is a saint and as if she already is the President, generally portraying her in positive light, etc.. This only goes on to give confidence to any sane person that these so-called flagship news media outlets have fully prostituted themselves to the Clintons, and that they're applying all their force to brainwash the American public into choosing Hillary. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16] [link 17] [link 18] [link 19] [link 20] [link 21] [link 22] [link 23] [link 24] [link 25] [link 26] [link 27]
      16. Western news media outlets, politicians and think tanks are careful to always mention and also emphasize the terms "Kremlin-funded", "Kremlin-financed", "Russian propaganda outlet", "Kremlin-owned", "Russian state-owned", "state-controlled", "Putin-owned", etc., when quoting or referring to Russian global news outlets such as RT and Sputnik. The same vocabulary is used for Syria's SANA, but Western outlets don't use such biased, loaded and suggestive terms for the vast Western state-sponsored media propaganda complex operating globally, that includes BBC, Radio Free Asia, Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Alhurra TV, Radio Mashaal, Radio Azadi, Radio y Televisión Martí, Radio Sawa, Radio Farda, etc. And this point does not include the heavy pro-Western, anti-Russia biases that have completely infected prominent Western news media outlets such as NYT, CNN, Fox News, BBC, etc. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16] [link 17] [link 18]
        1. "Negotiations are underway between Ankara and Moscow for the supply of S-400 air defence missile systems to the Turkish Armed Forces, Russian state-controlled press has reported." [link 1]
        2. "PRODUCERS at RT, the Kremlin-financed media weapon formerly known as “Russia Today”, must have been glowing." [link 1]
      17. [DRAFT] Use of psychological warfare by US and its allies against other countries such as North Korea, including through radio, loudspeakers, balloons, etc. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
      18. Even the Skytrax ratings of world's airlines are infected with Western foreign policy ambitions, something clearly visible in the "world's worst airline" title that has been repeatedly awarded to North Korea's flag carrier, Air Koryo - which is actually a fine airline and is clearly not the world's worst for anyone who is even slightly familiar with the world's airlines and commercial aviation in general. The real intention behind this "award" by this UK company is to further hurt and humiliate North Korea - sort of an additional lever to exert pressure on the West's perennial adversaries. [link 1]
      19. [DRAFT] Racist and xenophobic mocking of the looks/physique of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un by even high-profile news media outlets of the West, without considering the animal-like looks, behavior and actions of their own leaders. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8]
        1. Deniable insult of China's Xi Jinping attributed to 'technical glitch', Jan'20: Facebook's automated translation makes the Chinese President's name 'Mr Shithole', just as he visits Myanmar / Burma. So easy to call it a technical error, when it has probably been deliberately done [with advance thought that deniability will be available]. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      20. The official - though unadmitted - CIA/Pentagon/US policy is to assassinate/kill, fire, harass, imprison, intimidate, spy upon, or otherwise punish those journalists, newspapers, or officials who turn themselves into whistleblowers, who dare to report/reveal America's actions and information that are contrary to the doctored/fabricated/propaganda version of events that the United States wants to plant in the minds of the world [or who attempt to expose one or more of America's innumerable barbaric crimes and misdeeds]. The objective behind this mistreatment is to warn and discourage future whistleblowers, by demonstrating to them the pain and suffering that would come with certainty if they dared to blow the whistle on America. Folks include Julian Assange, Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden, and Jeffrey Sterling. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16] [link 17] [link 18] [link 19] [link 20] [link 21] [link 22]
        1. It's very noteworthy here that US simply doesn't talk about the revelations themselves, instead driving the discussion towards the act of disclosure/whistleblowing of its classified information. Even when the disclosed information contains revelations about cruel, barbaric and illegal actions committed by US, US doesn't talk about this aspect, trying to divert the world's attention to illegality of the act of disclosure, rather than the illegality of US' acts disclosed in the disclosures.
        2. Journalists, politicians, etc., in the US openly call for the killing of Julian Assange, including by using "illegal" methods. [link 1]
        3. As of Oct'17, likely as a result of US government pressure, Google [quietly] removed RT's YouTube channel from its premium ad service. So much for America's freedom of speech and freedom of press. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      21. [DRAFT] Covert as well as overt censorship, harassment, obstruction, or even outright murders of journalists or news media outlets that do not align with the West's anti-Iran, anti-Islam, anti-Putin, anti-Russia foreign policy, for example, cutting off the bank accounts of RT's UK operations, or equating Russia's RT and Sputnik with Daesh/IS/ISIL/ISIS. And this happens even as the West shamelessly trumpets its "steadfast" support for "freedom of speech", "journalistic freedom", etc. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10]
        1. Project Veritas account deleted by Vimeo, Jun'19. [link 1]
      23. [DRAFT] Using behavioral/psychological methods and tools to affect and alter the thinking, opinions and decisions of the public [link 1] [link 2]
      24. [DRAFT] An all-encompassing and uncontrolled military-industrial complex, an obscene "defense" budget that dwarfs the spending of next several heavyweight countries combined, and America's perpetual war machine that hungrily waits - and works behind the scenes - for the next war, the next conflict, the next opportunity to exhaust existing weapons on butchering innocents so that new stock can be ordered and trillions can be embezzled. Further, audits of Pentagon's budget have regularly revealed several trillion dollars unaccounted for, clearly pointing to massive corruption and embezzlement of funds on a scale like seen never before in the history of the world. Another noteworthy point here is that no prominent mainstream news media outlet - NYT, WaPo, etc. - report on this. This isn't accidental :-) [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14]
        1. The thirst, the lust, the green is insatiable. It can never be quenched. [link 1]
        2. Refusal by private corporations - Boeing, GE - to release emails related to Hillary Clinton and the US State Department. Of course those emails contain naked details about the true motives behind those huge "donations" given to the Clinton Foundation. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      25. [DRAFT] Animal cruelty [link 1] [link 2]
      26. [DRAFT] Britain's/Winston Churchill's holocaust in Bengal/India, comprising famine, loot and starvation [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
      27. [DRAFT] 1986 illegal bombing of Libya and attempted assassination of its leader, Muammar Gaddafi [link 1]
      28. [DRAFT] Systemic and prolific attempts to assassinate heads of state and other world leaders who refuse to bow down to American hegemony [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
        1. [DRAFT] Olaf Palme, Uwe Barschel and William Colby. [link 1] [link 2]
      29. [DRAFT] Indiscriminate, illegal, merciless and relentless bombing of civilians [including women and children], infrastructure, hospitals, and even wedding envoys and funerals (!) in Yemen by a barbaric Saudi-led and US-armed/US-supplied/US-supported nexus, and an opposition to international inquiry by the UNHRC into human rights violations/war crimes. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16] [link 17] [link 18] [link 19] [link 20] [link 21] [link 22]
        1. What can be more hypocritical than Saudi Arabia "donating" USD 67 million in "humanitarian assistance" to Yemen, the country it itself bombed, raped and slaughtered? America is quiet, of course. Imagine if Russia had done this to Yemen. Imagine America's reactions. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      30. [DRAFT] West's - and particularly America's - obsessive and thunderous pronouncements about fighting terrorism globally but a strange silence on Saudi Arabia's and Qatar's well-known and well-publicized support to terrorists destabilizing Syria, actions that should've earned Saudi and Qatar a real place on the State Sponsors of Terrorism list. What's more, America itself is heavily arming the terrorists in Syria, in order to destabilize and ultimately breakup the Arab Republic. As an extension of these objectives, the US is also directly hitting and killing Syrian Arab Army soldiers, hiding behind the excuse of "a mistake". [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11]
      31. It appears that there are multiple centers of power within the US government. So while the White House might [publicly] claim a certain position and strategy, it's both likely that America's CIA is running its own operations with its own agendas, that are directly opposite of White House's publicly stated positions and strategy - possibly without consultation with or consent of the White House.
        1. For example, as of Sep'17, while the President of the US publicly thunders that he's out to eliminate Daesh/IS/ISIL/ISIS from the Earth, other organs of the US are simultaneously supporting and saving these very terrorists. [link 1] [link 2]
      32. [DRAFT] NATO and US expressing "solidarity" with Turkey over alleged and unproven violation of Turkish airspace by Russian fighter jets, while maintaining complete silence and numbness on the habitual, obsessive and proven violation of Greek airspace by Turkish planes  [link 1] [link 2]
      33. [DRAFT] Another example of double-standards and hypocrisy - no US or EU sanctions on the decades-old occupation of Northern Cyprus by Turkey, yet repeated rounds of economic and military sanctions on Russia over the referendum-backed democratic secession of Crimea to Russia [link 1] [link 2]
      34. [DRAFT] Afghanistan [link 1]
      35. AMERICA'S CONTINUOUS ABUSE OF ITS STATUS AS HOST NATION OF THE UNITED NATIONS [UN] HEADQUARTERS: USA misuses its power as the host nation of the UN, in order to further its geopolitical goals by bullying, harassing and handicapping other nations. Examples and types of abuse include not issuing or not renewing US visas for diplomats/ministers/politicians it wants to block from attending UN, illegally expelling diplomats of other nations [12 Russian UN diplomats in Mar'18], blocking several key positions in the body, delaying visas of diplomats to hamper their work, etc. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8]
        1. Crippling/inhumane restrictions on the movement of Iran's UN diplomats. Such restrictions wouldn't exist if the UN was located in a neutral country. [link 1]
        2. Denial of US visas to several Russian and Iranian diplomats in Sep'19, thus barring them from carrying out their work at the United Nations General Assembly [UNGA]. Such malicious actions are undertaken by the US to harm the foreign policy work of adversary nations, despite being illegal under international law. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      36. [DRAFT] Using various charities, civil society groups, non-profits, aid groups, NGOs, etc., such as USAID or those run by George Soros, among scores of others, to achieve political and foreign policy objectives - including regime change and spreading of political instability - behind the covers of humanitarian assistance, promoting democracy, giving aid, etc. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9]
        1. US embassies buy and store spying/surveillance equipment, and sometimes even run their own data centers. [link 1] [link 2]
        2. The role of US embassies in organizing coups and regime change operations around the world is captured nicely in an old South American joke: Why has there never been a coup in America? Because there's no U.S. Embassy in Washington. [link 1]
      38. [DRAFT] Conversion of the US into a fascist oligarchy [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
      39. US frequently criticizes and discredits elections in other nations, and complains that those nations have less choices for voters, voting fraud, etc.. It never, however, mentions that in the US there are practically only two political parties and the foreign policy of these two is essentially identical - perpetual wars. It doesn’t also mention that it itself doesn’t allow foreign monitors to monitor its presidential polls. Also, nominees of only these two major parties are normally invited to presidential debates, virtually kicking out any other candidates. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
      40. [DRAFT] Repeated direct/indirect financial, political and social interference in the elections of other nations - such as in Nicaragua in 1984, or the desire to rig the 2006 Palestinian elections - including through misreporting/misrepresentation of events and facts by rotten news media. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      41. [DRAFT] Lobbying, which is just a fancy name for you-pay-us-we-support-you bribery/corruption done legally and publicly and with the blessing of the nation's courts/laws - for example in the case of owning and openly carrying guns - has given rise to powerful lobbies like NRA that practically control and run today's America. Add to this America's fancy bribes-in-elections vehicle called "Super PACs" that the US Supreme Court has enabled. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15]
      42. Cozy yet covert/unreported relationships between US government and large US companies [such as Google], involving heavy use of revolving door, akin to friends with benefits. The line between government and private corporations is disappearing in America. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        1. Similarly, between pharmaceutical companies and news media outlets, leading to favorable reporting or suppressed reporting of adverse facts. [link 1]
        2. As of Oct'18, it's very interesting that when a Russian company [PhosAgro] tries to influence European policymaking for its own benefit, The New York Times writes an article about it, almost expressing shock and surprise as if NYT folks just aren't aware how American giants such as GE, Lockheed and others literally write many of the laws or regulations that are passed in today's America. Isn't there lobbying in USA? [link 1]
        3. Amazon offered a [presumably lucrative] job to a Department of Defense official - Deap Ubhi - involved in a US federal procurement contract that Amazon desperately wanted/wants to win. Clearly a sort of bribe, a mole. [link 1] [link 2]
        4. Amazon is using lobbying and other methods to make itself best placed to be the only vendor of choice for federal procurement in the US. [link 1]
        5. NO ONE PUNISHED FOR 737 MAX SCANDAL: It's Dec'19, and 346 people have died in two crashes of the 737 Max plane, and Boeing has suffered several billion dollars in costs related to this ongoing scandal, but amazingly, not a single Boeing [or FAA] official or employee has been fired / jailed / punished for this scandal. It looks like Boeing is nicely lubricating the rear sections of everyone in the government and government agencies. It's also possible that clever lawyers have told Boeing that if you fire / punish anyone, it'll be seen as admission of guilt. [link 1]
      43. [DRAFT] America's Republican lawmakers - all of whom are likely well-funded/well-bribed by the military-industrial complex to funnel trillions of dollars of public's money into the black-hole-like coffers of these barbaric private corporations - voted down an amendment to produce an accounting estimate for the costs of America's decades-long nuclear modernization program, a clear indicator that these corrupt and bribed-to-the-throat rodents want to quietly and covertly embezzle public's money towards defense contractors without the inconveniences of scrutiny or public debate [link 1] [link 2]
      44. Privatization of activities/facilities/works that were traditionally handled by the government ["public"]. Sale of public property/land/parks/roads to for-profit private corporations by governments. [link 1]
      45. AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM / SUPERIORITY COMPLEX: US politicians - Obama, Hillary, etc. - use the words 'equality' and 'exceptionalism' in the same breath, the same sentence. Hardcore folks in the US talk about so-called 'American exceptionalism' as if it's something real. It isn't. Self-declared claims that America is somehow exceptional and that other nations "look to America for leadership" are convenient covers to allow US to butcher millions of innocents in other nations with impunity, to wage endless/merciless wars, to extrajudicially slaughter anyone anywhere based on "intelligence" that the US won't ever show, to steal other nations' oil and resources, to capture anyone anywhere and jail/torture them for as long as they want, etc. Basically the US thinks of itself as over and above international law/norms. In reality, this is merely an extreme case of jingoism and supremacism. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8]
        1. CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19: Americans have this belief that they "cannot be publicly seen as begging / seeking help from others, and most definitely not China or Russia", so in Mar'20 the American President publicly boasted that US will never be a supplicant nation, while privately appealing to European and Asian nations for help with supplies of masks, sanitizers, etc. Their sense of superiority distorts their thinking and decision-making. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8]
      46. [DRAFT] A perennial attitude of, and obsession with colonialism, conquest, control, destruction, dominance, expansion, exploitation, imperialism, invasion, leadership, taming, theft. Plus direct killings of millions of innocent civilians in dozens of nations attacked/invaded by the US, many times as a result of official US policy of killing civilians. What's more, these invasions and wars are nicely packaged under the most hilarious moniker possible - "Responsibility to Protect", or the benign-sounding "US stewardship", which is in reality just a new set of rules created by the West to make West's barbaric invasions of African and Middle Eastern nations appear legal, moral and even essential under international law. Of course, the same dubious doctrine hasn't been invoked/used to wage an annihilating war on Israel and its leadership, to protect the Palestinian people. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16] [link 17] [link 18] [link 19]
        1. US routinely displays arrogance by using words and statements like "US demands" or "we demand", as if it has any legal authority to demand anything from another sovereign nation. [link 1] [link 2]
        2. White man's burden - in May'17, after the WannaCry ransomware attack, some in the US are asking why US isn't "doing more" to stop such global attacks. As if America's NSA didn't create this nefarious weapon! [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
        3. "The United States is the moral conscience of the world.". The butcher nation which slaughters thousands of innocents each year has the stunning arrogance to make such sanctimonious claims. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        4. It's good to see that China - the next superpower - has begun using its financial firepower to tame, control and milk many of the former European colonial powers - the PIGS or PIIGS. From Chinese standpoint, all of Greece "is available" for the taking. So are Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Italy and others. Their assets, their companies, their people, their land - all are available for sale. The tide is turning and those who were colonized will continue rising. These acquired assets/companies will be forced to buy Chinese supplies, spares, equipment, and maybe even Chinese labor. [link 1] [link 2]
        5. Coronavirus / COVID-19 / US THEFT OF MASKS: Q
      47. TREATING DEVELOPING / POOR COUNTRIES AS DUMPSITES / DUMPYARDS FOR WESTERN WASTE [BASEL CONVENTION]: Particularly true of USA, as it opposed May'19 measures that would've stopped the flow of hazardous unrecyclable plastic junk to Asian nations such as Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia. Americans need to take care of their own waste. [link 1] [link 2]
      48. Whites have, for centuries now, invaded other nations and lands in order to loot the valuable natural resources on these other nations/lands. Be it crude oil, natural gas, metals/minerals, precious metals, diamonds, or other resources. In their quest for collecting/occupying/owning these resources, Whites have waged merciless wars on the native people of these other nations/lands. This theft didn't really ever end, and it continues to this day, with prominent modern day victims being Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen. [link 1]
        1. [DRAFT] Theft of billions of dollars worth of diamonds, maybe trillions, by Germans and other Europeans, as well as European companies such as De Beers, from Namibia. This wealth belonged and belongs to the Namibians. The present-day wealth, prosperity and riches of the so-called "developed" Europeans are basically a result of their global loot spanning centuries. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        2. America planned invasion of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and UAE/Abu Dhabi, solely to militarily occupy their territories and to steal their oilfields and oil. This is exactly what a thief does. Except that in this case, the theft would've been on a global scale. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8]
        3. Theft of Africa's and Asia's numerous art and cultural artefacts, and refusal to return these: As of Dec'18, there's some ongoing debate about whether Britain, France, and other invaders should return the invaluable art pieces and other cultural artefacts that these invading nations had looted from various African, Asian and maybe Latin American countries over centuries of colonialism. It's not just hilarious but also stunning that many Westerners are putting forward the protectorate argument that these pieces should not be returned because "they're the world's heritage", or that "these aren't safe in their countries of origin", or that "the world will better see and experience these in museums in England or France than in, say, a Kenyan museum". White man can always find an excuse to legitimize any of his deeds, howsoever illegal and repugnant those deeds might be. [link 1]
          1. In any case, the argument that the pieces aren't safe in their original African countries can be solved by shifting these to museums in South Africa, and that must be on a revenue-sharing basis with their home countries. Or in neutral countries such as Singapore. There's no reason to continue keeping these in the museums of European invaders. It's a continuing insult.
        4. AMERICAN OCCUPATION AND PILLAGE OF SYRIAN OIL FIELDS, Late 2019: As of Oct'19 and Nov'19, US has illegally surrounded and occupied Syrian oil fields, under the pretext of "securing Syrian oil" from ISIS. In reality, evidence shows that the US is itself conducting or facilitating theft and smuggling of Syrian crude oil, thus effectively depriving the Syrian government and Syrian people off their own crude. US has also militarily threatened others to stay away, specifically mentioning that Syrian forces are not allowed access to these Syrian oilfields. Sadly, yet again, this blatant theft if visible to the entire world, but due to America's crushing hegemony, not a soul can dare to question or challenge it. It's noteworthy that Donald Trump has said both in the past - in the case of Libya - and now that America should "keep" or "take" the oil of Syria [and Libya], using language to the effect of "spoils of war". It couldn't get more crystal clear than this. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9]
          1. As of Late Oct'19 and early Nov'19, Donald Trump has started openly speaking about "keeping" Syria's oil. The word 'keeping' is a euphemism for capturing/taking. US used to do such activities covertly in the past, but under Trump they've started to openly commit piracy, theft, and war profiteering. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10]
        1. Brain drain and its relation to transfer of intellectual property and technology, "forced" or otherwise: Brain drain of highly skilled and gifted people to the US is a massive, continuing loss for countries all over the world. Yet no country has enacted legislation to stop permanent transfer of intelligent/innovative people to other nations. US benefits exorbitantly from this situation and makes sure that this trend is maintained. However, US doesn't want to allow its firms to sell themselves or their IP to companies of other countries, especially Chinese. When there's no restriction on free movement of intellectual people, why does the US object to the free movement of intellectual property [created in part or wholly by those same people who've moved from other nations in the first place]? [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        3. As of Oct'18 / Nov'18, US is worried about and wants to stop China and/or Chinese chipmakers from acquiring top talent from companies of other countries [chiefly Western or Western-allied]. A purported champion of free markets doesn't want human talent to move to more lucrative jobs in Chinese companies. [link 1]
        4. The US / UK ban on their universities cooperating with Huawei and its affiliate companies [e.g., Futurewei], including accepting research funding or even plain philanthropy grants is also a part of US/UK efforts to deny China access to talent and technology, stemming out of deep US/UK anxiety over the unstoppable rise of China. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        5. Aug'19 blacklisting of Huawei's global R&D centers by America. [link 1]
        6. US attitude towards genius/intelligent people of other nations, especially of India and China, is sort of like these geniuses "automatically belong" to them [to US]. The title of a Bloomberg news story shows this arrogant attitude - "The U.S. Needs More of India’s and China’s Best and Brightest". They don't care or discuss that a developing/poor country such as India needs its bright people in India itself, in order to bring the nation out of poverty and backwardness. [link 1] [link 2]
        7. May'20 moves by UK / Britain / England to steal talented citizens and their capital from Hong Kong by giving them citizenship. [link 1]
        8. US, ISRAEL, OTHERS REGULARLY ELIMINATE HUMAN TALENT and physical assets [factories, industrial assets, defence manufacturing units, R&D assets, knowledge bases, research centers, scientific labs, military aircraft, etc.] in other nations, in order to cripple these nations and to widen their own relative superiority. A prominent example of this is the Jan'20 assassination of Iran's globally renowned and admired commander Qasem Soleimani by the US, a man the US knew was a crown jewel of Iran, whose killing would severely cripple present Iranian confidence and future Iranian planning and national security.
      50. PROTECTIONISM BY US: A good example of the double-standards and hypocrisy of US is its regular complaints about limits to market access in other nations, while it itself regularly conducts protectionism under various covers - antitrust law, national security, allegations of state subsidies, etc. The US cunningly uses terms and words in a way so that it looks legitimate and doesn't look like it's doing protectionism. In reality, Western companies just cannot compete on price with the lower costs of Asian workforce, and they desperately resort to politics, FUD, and propaganda to create excuses to eliminate competition coming from Asian firms. Example follow below. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10]
        1. Application of Norwegian Air for an airline license.
        2. Takeover of GE Appliances by Electrolux of Sweden.
        3. USA has barred China's giant Huawei from the US market under the guise of national security [by repeatedly spreading its staged and also unsubstantiated "fear" that Huawei products are likely bugged and could/will be used by the Chinese government for spying on America/West]. In reality, America is extremely scared and jealous of the stunning technological and global business success of Huawei, and it's finding it difficult to accept that Huawei is actually the leader in the world when it comes to cutting-edge technologies such as 5G networks - a domain that was always the forte of USA. It wants to contain and destroy Huawei by all means possible. Privacy/security concerns are just a pretext and a lame excuse. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
          1. Huawei shuts down its US solar energy business in Jun'19 because of opposition from US politicians, who oppose Huawei's solar products based on the pretext that use of Huawei's equipment in the US solar grid is a threat. [link 1]
          2. In Oct'19, published an Editorial saying that Huawei's dominance isn't okay and should be challenged. Perhaps because this dominant company happens to be Chinese, otherwise there are so many other dominant non-EU companies that FT could be / should be worried about. doesn't say so about the dominance of Google, whose search product decides what people read, what people think, and how people act, by directing them to information sources as well as services, all chosen using invisible algorithms. Neither does FT express worry about Facebook, which not only keeps collecting information about billions of its users, but also itself affects their thoughts, mood, decisions and actions based on equally opaque algorithms. [link 1]
          3. US actively and aggressively tracks and blocks the procurement of advanced equipment, machine tools [e.g., ASML tools that are used to manufacture advanced chips], etc., by Chinese companies such as SMIC. SMIC products are expected to help Huawei and several other budding Chinese fabless chipmakers. [link 1] [link 2]
          4. Forcing UK to ban Huawei from UK's 5G networks, Jul'20. [link 1] [link 2]
        4. Barring Lenovo products [Oct'16] under the same national security excuse. Perhaps the US itself is so extremely morally corrupted that it can't fathom that anyone else won't do the evil things that it itself does, hence the fear of Lenovo products including Chinese spying gear inside. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        5. Tariffs/taxes imposed on Chinese steel under the guise of "harm/injury to US steel industry", "unfair practices", etc.
          1. If harming a country's certain industry or industries makes imposition of duties/levies/tariffs legitimate, most countries would levy such taxes for all those industries where US companies dominate and "harm/injure" local players. Think of the crushing dominance that many US firms such as Google have in so many countries, clearly damaging local players. Would the US object to this?
        6. FUJIAN JINHUA: Almost-killing China's chipmaker/fab [for microprocessors and other electronics] under the usual guise of IP theft, when in reality America feels threatened and wants to destroy China's ability manufacture its own chips today and chips for the world tomorrow. [link 1]
        7. TikTok and American politicians are so outraged and unnerved by the worldwide success achieved by China's TikTok app [by ByteDance], that they've immediately started trying to harm it in whatever way possible, like, for example, the request for no less than a [CFIUS] national security review by China-hater Marco Rubio. For these politicians, it's unacceptable that a non-Western social media service achieves global success. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9]
        8. Kunlun and Grindr: Amusing that US' CFIUS forced a Chinese owner of a gay-dating app Grindr to sell it on national security grounds. Obviously the excuse is nonsense. The real objective is to not let any non-US company - much less a Chinese one - gain any sort of foothold in the social networking and/or online dating space. [link 1] [link 2]
        9. DISRUPTING THE WTO BY BLOCKING APPOINTMENT OF JUDGES: US is choking WTO’s Appellate Body by blocking the reappointment of its judges through the use of its veto, expressing dissatisfaction with its own "win rate" at WTO. Effectively, for the US WTO is fine if US mostly wins, otherwise it's a bad body in need of reform. Further, the US has, despite having the rare distinction of always having an American judge on the Body, complained about "less" number of US judges. It has also blocked appointment of judges that don't serve US interests. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        10. COMAC C919 AND POSSIBLE BLOCK OF US ENGINES: As of Feb'20, under the fake pretext of fear of reverse-engineering [as if Chinese airlines haven't already been owning and operating thousands of US engines for decades], US is considering choking China's first major homegrown passenger plane program - the C919 - by blocking the sale of CFM engines. The real intent is to not let China break the Airbus-Boeing duopoly and in general to stop the technological rise of China. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
      51. UNCERTAINTY AS ECONOMIC WEAPON [TO HURT FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY RIVALS]: Actually placing an explicit ban on US exports to Huawei isn't/wasn't required. Merely creating an air of uncertainty about the future of its products is/was enough to create fear and hesitation in the minds of its current and future customers. Large buyers such as telecom companies that need predictable support and upgrades for several years [maybe decades] just cannot take the risk of their investments going waste if there's the risk that in the future, Huawei's network equipment might not receive software upgrades or spare parts. That's what the US government has done in May'19/Jun'19. It announced ban on Huawei, and then gave a temporary waiver, and also said that Huawei's fate could be a part of a trade deal with China [uncertain outcome for now]. Certainty went away. Customers got deterred.
      52. USA SEES EUROPE AS ITS CHIEF COMPETITOR, A FORMIDABLE RIVAL, CLAIMED TO BE ITS PARTNER, AND A SUPERPOWER TO BE CONTAINED: America has always presented Europe as its partner to the world, with "shared values". In reality, due to its technological advancement, excellent education / research / scientific institutions, high-end manufacturing industries, vast domestic defense-industrial base, a powerful global reserve currency in euro, etc., US sees Europe as its strategic competitor. Initiatives and efforts such as NATO, F-35 fighter plane, military bases in Europe [e.g., ~35 in Germany alone], air defence / missile defense systems in Europe [e.g., Romania], tens of thousands of US troops in various European countries in the name of securing them [Germany, Italy, etc.], unending opposition to Nord Stream 2, etc., are publicly presented as designed to "protect/secure Europe", but are in reality instruments to contain and control/tame Europe, so that, philosophically speaking, it doesn't become self-aware and morph into a threat to US. US wants Europe to be a huge market for US products and services, and for Europe to buy American-made military equipment, and for Europe to lend legal/moral/political legitimacy and also direct operational support to its global wars, but it doesn't want Europe to be a competitor to American companies, nor does it want Europe to have a mind of its own. [link 1] [link 2]
        1. NORD STREAM 2 GAS PIPELINE: Why is US so extremely opposed to it, and voicing out such grave and frequent threats to both Russia and Europe? There are multiple benefits to America if Nord Stream 2 can be [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        2. poland gas base cross subsidy

      53. Everything is a weapon / Everything as a weapon:
        1. US' Visa Waiver Program as a weapon: Jun'20 WSJ story shows that US is using the VWP as a coercion weapon to force countries - like Croatia - to shun China's security-screening equipment giant Nuctech. [link 1] [link 2]
          1. "Now the U.S. is attempting to thwart Nuctech across Europe, from Croatia to Lithuania, where Washington is lobbying for American firms to get the contracts instead."
      54. [DRAFT] Invasion of Grenada, 1983 [link 1]
      55. [DRAFT] Awards to, celebrations for, decoration of, and honors to officials with war crimes and truckloads blood of innocents on their hands [e.g., Iran Air Flight 655], rather than investigations, prosecutions and punishments. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
      56. In America, people from the common public are aggressively prosecuted and jailed for even small offences, sometimes after decades of continuing investigations and search. Many rot in jails for years without any charges. However, those who are financially and/or politically powerful are not investigated or prosecuted, and the entire public, as well as law enforcement, lawmakers and judiciary see this naked dance of power right in front of their eyes, yet no one does anything. Welcome to America, where Hillary Clinton cleverly used a private email server - officially for government use but in reality to conduct all sorts of her dirty acts with sufficient secrecy and control. Despite clear and sufficient evidence of deliberate criminal wrongdoing on this wicked woman's part, nothing will happen to her because she's part of a powerful and well-connected establishment/family. In fact, attempts are being made to point fingers at those who sent emails to her, and not on her who illegally set up a private email service to scrub/shred her crimes. Similarly, Bill Clinton blatantly violated America's election laws in Mar'16, but he won't be arrested or prosecuted for crimes that were recorded on cameras. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12] [link 13] [link 14] [link 15] [link 16]
        1. Hillary Clinton received debate questions in advance. Cheating and lying are ways of life for the Clintons. And whether or not there is evidence for this, CNN did have a hand in those questions reaching Clinton. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7]
      57. USA has hundreds and hundreds of military bases all over the world, stuffed with tens of thousands of men and also all sorts of military aircraft, yet it vehemently accuses other, peaceful countries - which have no or few outposts abroad - of "aggression", "destabilization", "escalation", "provocation", "threats", etc. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8] [link 9] [link 10] [link 11] [link 12]
      58. NATO / US promised to USSR / Russia that NATO wouldn't move eastwards towards Russia. NATO / US broke this promise and NATO has continued to move towards Russia, steadily surrounding it. In response / self-defence, when Russia stations its troops and equipment on Russia's own borders, NATO nations cry out loud about Russia placing military assets close to "NATO borders", carefully not mentioning the crucial fact that it is NATO that's moving NATO borders and offensive weaponry ever closer to Russia, militarily threatening it and requiring ["asking for"] a response. In a nutshell, you first move your own border next to the Russian border, and when Russia does anything at its own border in response to your movement, you cry that Russia is doing things at "NATO border". Nonsense! [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        1. "DEFENSIVE" STRIKES BY US FORCES ON HOST NATION, 2020: Bizzare, but US frequently conducts attacks on people and installations inside the countries in which US forces are the occupying force. So basically US first forcibly comes and occupies a country, and when militaries and/or militias attack US forces to throw them out of their homeland, US conducts strikes on them in "self defence". [link 1] [link 2]
        2. US fighter jets dangerously "inspected" an Iranian passenger plane flying over Syria because it flew near a US air base in Syria, Jul'20. So first the US forcibly occupies portions of Syria and installs military bases there, and later when regular civilian flights cross over Syria, US claims that because the plane was flying near its base [which isn't supposed to be there in the first place], it gets some kind of right to inspect it. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
          1. "The jet performed a visual inspection of the Mahan Air passenger plane to ensure the safety of coalition personnel at the base in al-Tanf, said Capt. Bill Urban, a spokesman for U.S. Central Command, which is responsible for military operations in the Middle East."
      59. [DRAFT] Psychic numbing and desensitization of general public in the West, leading to a lack of meaningful public opposition to West's endless wars and butchering of millions of innocents all around the world [link 1] [link 2]
      60. [DRAFT] Complete, merciless and utter destruction of the rich, prosperous and peaceful state of Libya and its people, from a powerful, stable and progressive nation state into a total chaotic mayhem by Americans and Western Europeans, under the pretext of supporting democracy and ousting a dictator, whereas the real motives were maintaining the hegemony of US dollar by annihilating the pan-African "Gold Dinar" project and its backers, funneling shitload of public money to the military-industrial complex, stealing Libya's oil and other valuable national/natural assets and resources such as gold/silver , and much more [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
      61. [DRAFT] Desperate desire and efforts by many US - and to some extent European - lawmakers and federal agencies to get anti-encryption/data-collection/spying/surveillance legislation passed, using tactics such as spreading fake and/or hypothetical examples/FUD, amplifying attacks, and so on. What's more, there seems to be almost an actual desire to see terrorist attacks on Continental USA or Europe - as if both lawmakers, weapons companies and private contractors eagerly wait for such events - so as to create an irrefutable pretext to pass such anti-privacy laws. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
      62. US PLANNED TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF USSR, CHINA USING NUCLEAR BOMBS: Which country is so rotten that it plans complete annihilation of the people, infrastructure, and industrial capabilities of other nations? America's declassified documents reveal these monstrous plans. Noteworthy that all American plans against its self-declared enemies always envisage destruction of industrial / research capabilities of the target nations, so that America achieves relative industrial and technological superiority. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
        1. UKRAINE'S MOTOR SICH AND CHINA: As of Sep'19, America is trying hard to stop China from acquiring Ukraine's Motor Sich, so China can be denied advanced engine technology for aircraft and helicopters. It has always been America's policy to stop the technological development of other nations. [link 1] [link 2]
          1. As of Nov'19, US is itself trying to buy this company. [link 1] [link 2]
        2. US DESTRUCTION OF SYRIAN ELECTRICAL INFRASTRUCTURE: It is US policy to bomb other countries to, so to say, the Stone Age, by obliterating their civilian infrastructure, scientific institutions, research labs, manufacturing units, etc., so that those other countries become dependent on aid money as well as imports to survive. Electrical transformers in Syria were destroyed by the US, under the excuse of combating terrorism. The expected resulting mayhem is naturally blamed on the "regime". [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      63. OBSESSIVE AND COMPULSIVE HATE OF RUSSIA AND USSR: West in general and US in particular are viciously anti-Russian, anti-Soviet and hence anti-Putin. They will go to any extent possible to harm / hurt Russia and Vladimir Putin. This hatred is obsessive, compulsive, and perennial, as if it's deeply rooted directly in the blood and genes of Americans. In the pursuit of this hatred, US quickly befriends anyone and everyone who can be of help in hurting Russia and Putin - like Ukraine, like the terrorists in Afghanistan, Libya and Syria. Like a blood-thirsty witch, US goes after everyone who exhibits behavior that seems even remotely friendly to Russia, even if these countries/people happen to be its allies. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7] [link 8]
        1. This deep-rooted hatred of the West for Russia manifests itself in even the daily, routine news media content that the West produces, such as articles about foods, nightlife, travel, etc. Usually you'll find zero or few suggestions about Russian places, Russian foods, Russian clubs, Russian drinks, etc., in Western articles that talk about important/interesting stuff in the world. This ain't a coincidence. It isn't like nature didn't endow America's foes Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, Syria, etc., or that there aren't great things here. [link 1]
        2. When Syria's leader Assad refused to allow an anti-Russia Qatari pipeline through Syrian soil, America wasted no time in butchering hundreds of thousands of Syrians and destroying the nation in order to carry out its own pipeline plans. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]
        3. In Oct'17, Johns Hopkins University canceled its Russian major program. Seems like geopolitics was at play. America apparently doesn't want too many Americans to learn the Russian language, or else these Russian-literate folks would read Russian news media and would come to know things that American media carefully isn't reporting. [link 1] [link 2]
        4. US WANTS ALL EASTERN EUROPEAN NATIONS INTO EU AND LATER NATO: US' deep-rooted hate for Russia makes it work towards engulfing all of Russia's neighbors into NATO, and US sees EU membership as a stepping stone towards NATO membership. Therefore, US wants as many near-Russia nations to be a part of EU / NATO as possible, so that Russia is not left with any allies / friends, and so that anti-Russia forces and equipment can be stationed in more and more nations around Russia. In Oct'19, when France blocked the talks for EU accession of Albania and North Macedonia, US quickly and unexpectedly responded, alarmed at the mere possibility of any near-Russia nation not joining EU [and later NATO]. [link 1] [link 2]
      64. Through perennial abuse/misuse of its near-total control over worldwide news media, the US has managed to create such a toxic anti-Russia environment in the world that in the West it has become a huge sin to even float the thought of considering buying Russian defense/military equipment, let alone actually buying it, and irrespective of its technical or financial merits. So poor Italy, for example, is forced to purchase and participate in the horribly expensive and corrupt F-35 fighter jet program even if it strongly doesn't want to. The US has carefully crafted such a geopolitical environment now that even if deep in their hearts the Italians want to purchase Sukhoi's cost-effective and highly-capable Su-35 and/or Su-57 fighter aircraft, on the "world stage" they just cannot. They have no control left. [link 1]
      65. [DRAFT] Western news media and also lawmakers/politicians have regularly opined and whined that Ukraine needs to be decoupled economically and culturally from Russia - Ukraine needs to be provided with alternative sources of gas/energy, and Ukraine needs to get other export destinations for its defence products - yet these venomous entities never talk about similarly banning America or Europe from contracts in Iraq, Libya and other countries that the West destroyed [link 1] [link 2]
      66. [DRAFT] Imprisonment/prisons [link 1] [link 2]
      67. HISTORICAL REVISIONISM + REWRITING HISTORY: Both US government and its vast news media complex are involved in whitewashing America's evil past. Methods include outright alteration of established historical facts/information, emphasizing those historical events and people that strengthen America's image, withholding information about those events/people that make others look nice, withholding critical pieces of information from historians/journalists/public under the pretext of classified material or national security, denying access to or outright destruction of embarrassing material under various pretexts, reporting partially/selectively, discrediting and downplaying the positive role of non-Western nations, etc. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
        1. USSR defeated Nazi Germany, and sacrificed a staggering ~27-28 million Soviet lives for this. However, the USA carefully never acknowledges, recognizes or mentions this immense Soviet contribution, because that would lift the image of Russians on the global stage in the present day, and would partially negate the massive anti-Russian/anti-Soviet propaganda efforts and "investments" made by US. It quietly tries to let this sacrifice die, so that people slowly start believing that it was the Americans who defeated Nazi Germany. [link 1] [link 2]
        2. Destruction of Red Army monuments by Poland, likely at the orders of US, to erase the contributions of Red Army and USSR from the minds of people. [link 1] [link 2]
        3. FIRST SPACE FLIGHT VERSUS FIRST MOON LANDING: US carefully creates much fanfare about its Moon landings, but makes sure that it never mentions mankind's pioneering triumph - Yuri Gagarin's groundbreaking first flight into outer space. The massive control US has over media ensures that the world talks about and celebrates American Moon landings much more than the first outer space flight by the Soviet Union. For example, it appears that the movie First Man has been named such so that the world remembers America's Neil Armstrong as the "first man", and forgets USSR's Yuri Gagarin. Perhaps, like The Real Transported Man in The Prestige, there should be another movie titled The Real First Man, celebrating Gagarin and his feat.
        4. Geographical names given to sites discovered by Russian explorers are being replaced by the West in their atlases and maps with their Western or secondary names, thus giving a wrong impression to readers that these sites were discovered by Western travelers. The contribution of Russians is thus being erased from the world's memory and in a way this is an example of appropriation of Russia's achievements. [link 1] [link 2]
        5. Zero mention of crimes of American leaders or key politicians in Western eulogies and obituaries: For example, as of Nov'18 and Dec'18, American and even some European news media outlets are pouring praises for George H. W. Bush after his recent death. They're all literally in tears and making this mass-murdered look like a saint. They're just not touching his war crimes and his direct and indirect killing of perhaps thousands of innocent humans. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6]
      68. [DRAFT] Adopting and pushing the allies-licking term "Arabian Gulf" instead of the accepted and historical term "Persian Gulf", as part of nefarious attempts to culturally and historically weaken states considered unfriendly, and to rewrite history. [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5] [link 6] [link 7]
        1. Even major Western newspapers at times try to ram the "Arabian Gulf" term down the throats of their readers, apparently in order to gradually cause a change in the discourse and eventually kill "Persian Gulf". For example, this Jul'19 story on FT was rightly panned by its readers via top-upvoted comments for using the term "Arabian Gulf", something FT later quietly changed to just "Gulf" rather than "Persian Gulf". [link 1]
      69. It appears that instead of holding Google accountable, and instead of exposing Google's quite obvious and visible evil deeds, Western news media is actually trying to save Google from prosecution by publishing articles that downplay Google's evil steps and try to spin the European/Russian investigations as politically-motivated against American technology giants rather than outcomes of actual, real actions of Google and others [link 1] [link 2] [link 3]
      70. Isn't it hilarious that the West first itself creates catastrophic crises to feed the coffers of its military-industrial complexes - such as the meltdown of Libya, rise of ISIL/ISIS, destruction of Iraq, mayhem in Syria, bombing of Yemen, truckloads of migrants, etc. - and later gives away awards and prizes such as the Pulitzer to its own photographers, etc., for "excellent" coverage of these Western-made crises, that "moved" and "touched" the people! [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4]
        1. Not to forget that Western slaughter and destruction of Syria has been termed a "civil war" by the West. World's peoples now believe that whatever's going on in Syria is a civil war, unaware that billions of dollars of cash and weapons pumped by the West and its allies are responsible for this artificial/manufactured rebellion in the erstwhile-peaceful nation. Thankfully, the current version of the article on civil war on Wikipedia doesn't mention the word Syria. [link 1]
