If Russia is an aggressor? | By Ali Ashraf Khan
If Russia is an aggressor?
The WORLD situation is getting darker and darker as the hours pass, the Russians are waging three prone wars, the first in Ukraine, the second on US-controlled international forums and media, and the third to counter the United States. States and their allies trying to isolate Russia through financial and economic sanctions.
The US, EU and NATO are behaving like paper tigers and the people of Ukraine don’t know if NATO has pushed Ukraine into this war against Russia, where people are being deceived by Zionists for more than a decade and the Ukrainian army used as a mercenary army to join the American misadventures. against Muslim countries.
The so-called champions of human rights and freedoms are directly responsible for the current war in Ukraine to accuse Russia of aggressor.
Our memories are fresh that NATO was created after World War II to serve as a security alliance between North America and Europe, 1989 saw the fall of the Berlin Wall and 1991 saw the disintegration of the USSR.
When the UN, NATO, SEATO and CENTO were formed, the main objective of Western leaders was to engage the Soviets in Cold War gimmicks to protect capitalism and democracy as effective tool to control and colonize the world’s resources using third degree methods, including compromising the sovereignty of these. country by regime change.
After the collapse of the USSR, it was announced to voluntarily liquidate NATO, SEATO and CENTO, when Russia dissolved the Warsaw Pact.
The United States first roped the European Union in its clutches, then to protect and promote capitalism, first attacked sovereign Yugoslavia, a stronghold of the non-aligned movement by dividing a sovereign country into pieces to send a warning to other Eastern European countries not to think about the revival of Socialism in their country.
The UN and the ICJ have never condemned the United States for genocide and crimes against humanity when atrocities were committed in Yugoslavia, Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Arab Spring and Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan were targeted after the well-planned and executed 9/11 drama in which an innocent American citizen suffered again.
But the United States continued to blackball the Russians by expanding NATO membership to corner Russia, the last straw was seen in 2021 when Bosnia and Ukraine became NATO members to threaten Russian security.
People with a conscience write that the failed dream of US imperialism has led to the current expansionism through NATO and the UN and against all promises to strengthen peaceful coexistence, almost all the republics of Central Asia became members of NATO against the assurance given in 1991 by President Bush that after Germany’s inclusion in NATO no other countries will be admitted to NATO membership, but when the States United found it powerless in the trade war against China, they deployed naval aircraft carriers in the Indo-Pacific region, to consolidate naval blockade powers, the QUAD was activated in the Indo-Pacific between United States, Australia, India and Japan.
Not satisfied, the United States entered into another AUSUK nuclear submarine security alliance with the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom to block China at sea.
A strategic analyst believes that if Russia loses in Ukraine, India will be used and given America’s police role in Asia against China and Pakistan. Therefore, Pakistani leaders must courageously apply wisdom and resolve political differences instead of dividing the nation for service. the hidden agenda of the West, the moment of the current political stalemate is very dangerous and the hidden hand is deliberately playing savage blows by exploiting our poor leadership and the blind and stupid intelligentsia that has led to this trap.
It is accepted that each country has its own national interest, China worked on an alternative route and in the 1960s had funded the KKH project through army engineers, but in 1972 they were not Satisfied with the alignment of KKH built by our engineers, Prime Minister Bhutto allowed 80,000 Chinese men to come to Pakistan to build KKH from Besham/Thakot to Khunjerab was completed.
Then, in 1992, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif visited Gawader with the Chinese ambassador and accepted the Chinese offer to build a port through a Chinese contractor. zones to ensure socio-economic well-being in Pakistan but we failed to turn it into reality rather a musical chair played in the destabilization of the political system to sabotage this project.
Iran was another country facing serious threats from the United States and its cohorts. Our salvation lies in joining the Shanghai Cooperation Councils, which was a natural alternative and was gaining strength in Asia.
Russia and China have also extended a hand of goodwill to Iran to resist Western onslaught.
To understand the background of the war in Ukraine, after 1991 a policy shift started when the US and EU started intervening in this region and the current conflict which started in February 2014 has now become a threat for world peace if the Western powers continue to support Ukraine.
While experts view the situation as a build-up that had prevailed since the Cold War era between the United States and the Soviet Union, contemporary political analysts see it as a residue of Russia’s regional hegemony, a Jewish leader Zalenskky was planted not only to control the predominantly Christian country, but to work to destabilize Russia, which also turned Ukraine’s military into a mercenary army fighting US and NATO proxy wars, whether in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Middle East or elsewhere, that’s why Vladimir Putin acted like a great statesman of the day to teach Zalenskyy a lesson of not destroying the country that remained historically, socially and politically close to the Soviets.
On the day the Russian forces started the operation against Ukraine, our Prime Minister surprisingly visited Russia, with the offer to mediate between Russia and the United States, which exposed our policy mistakes foreign, first we saw our love affair with the United States weaken after the Trump era, China and Russia seasoned foreign ministers in charge of affairs and would not allow anyone to play intelligently with them, such a mistake will have its own consequences.
We are going through a very difficult time and running a country through yellow democracy and controlled power play can lead to catastrophic results and we can face a worse situation than Ukraine.
It is time to unite the nation under one umbrella and develop national consensus and stop this musical chair for regime change without full surgical remedy to our political and administrative evil in a transparent manner to save our country and the nation of the negative impact of this bullfight.
Allah Almighty may grant serenity, wisdom and courage to our leaders to lead the nation and not betray for self-aggrandizement. Allah may bless Pakistan and mankind.
