US seeks to enforce global dominance by unleashing war on countries who oppose it – Assad
He has a point doesn´t he ?

C&P

"Washington’s pursuit of hegemony has fallen short of its goal, causing havoc and collapse of states, Bashar Assad said in a new interview. Syria’s head believes that US meddling in the conflict aims to save what is left” from its fading global preeminence.
In an interview to Iranian magazine Tehran Foreign Policy Studies Quarterly on Wednesday, the Syrian president argued that the US resort to force every time it fears a challenge to its clout and ability to control the international agenda unilaterally.

“United States builds its position on hegemony over other states and it has been the case since they took advantage of the USSR collapse and established unilateral control over this world up to this day,” the president said, adding that the real motive behind US military interventions into foreign countries is to coerce them to submit to American authority, as in the case with Syria.

“Today, the United States are waging wars with the only goal to cement its project of total control by launching attack on everyone, who opposes its dominance,” Assad said, noting that Washington “rejects” and “refuses to acknowledge” the nascent balance of powers in the world affairs and the rise of other states.

Assad believes that while Washington has been losing its grip, it cannot accept the fact it’s not being in charge of the global affairs, and tries to reaffirm, if not to strengthen, its positions in the world.

“What is happening in Syria is an attempt to save what is left from the American and western hegemony in the world,” Assad said.

According to the Syrian president, “the only one thing the Americans have succeeded is creating problems and destroying states, no more than that.”

Washington spares no means to inflict losses on its ideological rivals, including “terrorism”, psychological and economical methods, Assad said. However, he thinks that a biased coverage of the conflict by mainstream media delivers one of the most significant blows.

“Here we are talking not only about the minds of the officials, but about the people, about the wrong analysis of what is happening and presenting things in a distorted way.”

If Syria manages to withstand the pressure and uproot the terrorism from its soil, the victory will pave the way for “spread of ideas of independent development [in the world], that is what the West fears most of all,” Assad said, adding that “what will happen in Syria will affect the political map.”

The Syrian president does not believe that that the US foreign policy may change its track in the foreseeable future, as wars are in the interest of American powerful lobby groups, in particular, arms and oil lobbies.

“There is no point in analyzing US politics on the basis of common sense, as it is guided by the factional interests,” Assad said.

Earlier, Moscow raised concerns about the possible impact of the US trying to ouster the Syrian president by means of a direct military aggression, with Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova warning it would lead to a “terrible, tectonic shift not only in the country, but in the entire region”

For its part, Russia has been assisting Syrian government in the fight against terrorism at the request of Assad since September last year. Russia’s UN envoy and the current UN Security Council President Vitaly Churkin on Monday said he believes “had it not been for our [Russian] involvement in Syria, it might well be that the black flags would be flying over Damascus.”

The assertion that Russia has been the main contributor to the Syrian anti-terror campaign and did not let it slip into the hands of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants was rejected by Mark Toner, State Department’s spokesperson in a briefing on Tuesday. Washington has been downplaying Russia’s role in helping to put an end to the Syrian bloodshed, even claiming that its bombing campaigns have been largely targeting the opposition forces instead of IS.

Despite the breakdown of US-Russian cooperation on Syria, Washington indicated it is not going to inflame the standoff by striking Syrian government targets as it is concerned it would put Russian and US forces on the brink of military confrontation.

“The president [Barack Obama], as he thinks through those options, is going to think very carefully about the consequences of taking different actions,” White House spokesman John Earnest said on Tuesday.

US-led coalition carried out airstrike on Syrian government troops in Deir ez-Zoir on September 19, killing 62 servicemen and injuring over hundred. In the wake of the attack, President Assad announced the end of the latest US-Russia brokered ceasefire in Syria."

Briefly;

Iraq - Invaded and occupied by the US (and its lackies)
Afghanistan - Ditto
Libya - Not invaded or occupied by the US, but ..... a country lead by a man who wanted the resources of that country to benefit the people of that country. This ran contrary to the 'interests' of the US, and its lackies, so the 'jackals' were sent in to plunge the country into chaos. The chaos was then blamed on Gaddafi, followed by outrage at the way he was treating his people, and Libya was bombed to bits.
That country is now a complete mess. Strangely though, nobody in Western politics/media seems to care too much about the plight of the Libyan people now.
Syria - See Libya, substitute Assad for Gaddafi.
Of course, Russia is the 'fly in the ointment' in this matter, so it remains a work in progress.

Republican or Democrat, the ideology is the same, when it comes to American hegemony. Certain individuals at the forefront of each administration may be less actively involved than others, and that may slow things down a bit, but the underlying impetus is still there.

You asked me to comment on the dubious factual nature of some of what you'd written. You wrote;

'the recent conquests of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria'

The belief that these nations have been conquered by the US of A may come as a surprise to the likes of Assad, Putin and the Taleban for example. I would say your comments are therefore dubious in point of their factual correctness. None of the countries you mention are under the occupation and control of the USA.

You then attempt to differentiate what the US do (in your eyes) and what , for example, the British Empire did, as the use of different technologies. That is a spectacularly blase and unintelligent observation. The British Empire, like most before and since, used military power to completely annexe whole nations, to run their affairs on a day to day basis and to take their resources for their own. This is similar to what the Soviets did in Eastern Europe. I wonder if the Americans should have 'took their time' after ousting the Germans from France, to 'counter the spread of communism'?

You cannot, even with your rampant and pathological anti Americanism, reasonably compare the scenarios with what the Americans do. It's truly idiotic. Doubtless you'll assert that the US use other means to achieve the same thing, means known only to those like yourself who look deeply into things. It's not the same - nothing is the same as the outright military conquest and occupation of other nations over a prolonged period which is what empires do.

You then reference an article produced by a right wing think tank for an administration long gone as if it actually represents current US foreign policy. It's bullshit mate, and does you no credit. If they have set out to rule the world they're doing a pretty shit job of it aren't they?

The Americans intervene in the affairs of other nations in an insidious and often damaging way. Their military interventions are generally characterised by indecisiveness, half heartedness, and a lack of end strategy, which in itself tells you plenty about the strength of their imperial motivations. In their position the British Empire actually took over and owned vast swathes of the globe, and brutally suppressed any opposition they encountered. The Soviets, the Nazis, in recent times did exactly the same thing.

I wrote

"The Yanks, regardless of the shit they get, are by a mile the superpower least interested in foreign conquest that has ever existed. There is no objective historic measure that does anything other than support that position. " That appears to be borne out by the facts a tad more than your position in my view.

A different way to the British Empire certainly, given the different technology, but an even larger scale.
As for the Soviets, they took their time in retreating from territory after ousting the Germans. That was to counter what they perceived as the threat of American imperialism.

Now, perhaps you could elaborate on that "dubious factual nature" that you alluded to.

'Hmmm, well aside from the recent conquests of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria, the US&A has military bases in 70+ countries.'

Leaving aside the dubious factual nature of some of that, you cannot seriously compare the Yanks imperialism with that of the Brits or say the Soviets in post war Europe. It's utterly ridiculous to suggest they have exercised their power in the same way, or on the same scale.
