There is need for de-escalation” in the Middle East, amid rising tensions between the United States & Iran. France, the United Arab Emirates and the Nato defence alliance also called for de-escalation.
Iran has carried out a ballistic missile attack on air bases housing US forces in Iraq, in retaliation for the US killing of General Qasem Soleimani Iranian commander.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei said the attack was “a slap in the face” for the US and called for an end to the US presence in the Middle East.
President Donald Trump, you ordered the drone strike that killed Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani in Iraq but what were the legal grounds for this course of action?
The US said: “This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans.” whereas Iraqi MPs reacted angrily and passed a non-binding resolution calling for US troops to leave the country. The Iraqi government has called it a “brazen violation of Iraq’s sovereignty”.
It means there were no impending threat but considered future as Trump (you) said.
And when Iraq asked to evacuate its regime you threatened to impose sanction on Iraq.
Your (US) unilateral decision even did not seek Congress approval or took into confidence before assassin Iranian leader, Said Pelosi that Trump should have been sought an approval from the Congress & even Trump informed us after 48 hours when Iranian leader torn off, she added.
A general question from US that why you have made life miserable. US (you) must look back that wherever you (US) invaded you destroyed the country, you attained nothing but lost ………..its failure not on your ground but others..
You lost your own military men & coalition partners forces too but you never ever contented & complacent but always seems crazy for WAR, your hilarity, gaiety & revelry priced others, you bundled & converted the country into heap of rubble, dust & debris.
Peace could not restored, people starving to death, vulnerable countries lost its infrastructure, every structure relevant to Human lives either has been bombarded & zerorised, no food & factories, war torn area, complete upside down, so the result of WAR is visible even though you spent trillion, you lost your army, you indebted US in trillion but you could not win the WAR that’s you imposed in 5 countries that’s IRAQ LIBYA AFGHANISTAN, YEMEN and Syria…complete disaster.
WAR mongering egomania for keeping your head ON, enslaving & subordinating other countries who are living in their own boundaries but you don’t let them to live comfortably.
Can you [US] please tell us when will cease your belligerence, antagonisms, bellicosity & combativeness approach with other countries those are low in strength & feel intimidation & insecurity from you despite living in an independent state, in their own land but feel frightened & terrified.
On multiple excuses you pretended that you were true supporter of the country & claimant of peace enforcer around the globe but you worked secretly not helping the govt, killing anti state element but employed more anti state forces to work against the host country.
In the past you created trembling and jittery environment among Arabian Gulf where they being traumatized & alarmed, looking possible threat from their neighboring states entire Arab peninsula asked security from you. You not only deployed your army on onshore butt offshore too & charged them heavily. You got opportunity to sell out your arms & ammunition in Arabian & Middle Eastern states ….you are a good salesman.
In the past you signed off letter of intent with Saudi Arabia’s Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud a series of letters of intent for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to purchase arms from the United States totaling US$110 billion immediately and $350 billion over 10 years.
The intended purchases include tanks, combat ships, missile defense systems, as well as radar, communications and cyber security technology.
The transfer was widely seen as a counterbalance against the influence of Iran in the region and a “significant” and “historic” expansion of United States relations with Saudi Arabia.
You inducted or employed ISIS militant group, equipped them with latest war arsenals to combat with state actor & non state actors, fueling internal clashes, pushing the country in chaotic situation, resulting more dependency & reliance from the host country thickened that paved the ways for you to install military bases in Arab world & you be came successful. Now you see that how many deaths reported wherever you imposed war.
What happened in Syria?
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a monitoring group based in the UK, estimated the death toll since the start of the war to be as high as 511,000 as of March 2018. Years of relentless fighting left 6.6 million displaced internally and 5.6 million around the world, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)
The conflict flared after unprecedented anti-government protests in the southern city of Daraa on March 15, 2011. Demonstration spread across Syria and were brutally suppressed by the regime, triggering a multi-front armed conflict that has drawn in jihadists and foreign powers
More than half of those were Syrian soldiers, while 1,682 were from the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah whose members have been fighting in Syria since 2013.
The war has also taken the lives of more than 69,000 opposition, Islamist, and Kurdish-led fighters. It has killed more than 67,000 jihadists, mainly from the Islamic State group and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), a group dominated by Syria’s former Al-Qaeda affiliate.
The total death toll does not include some 88,000 people who died of torture in regime jails, or thousands missing after being abducted by all sides in the conflict.
December 2018, US President Donald Trump announced that US troops involved in the fight against the Islamic
State (ISIS) in northeast Syria would be withdrawn imminently.
Trump’s surprise decision overturned Washington’s policy in the Middle East. It has also fueled the ambitious & anxieties of local and regional actors vying over the future shape of Syria.
Western and Arab governments have failed to achieve any of their policy objectives in Syria. Instead, Russia has
emerged as a significant regional mediator, and Iran seems poised to play a substantial role in Syria’s future.
What happened in Libya?
On 19 March 2011, a multi-state NATO-led coalition began a military intervention in Libya, ostensibly to implement United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, in response to events during the Libyan Civil War. The United Nations’ intent and voting was to have “an immediate ceasefire in Libya, including an end to the current attacks against civilians, which it said might constitute crimes against humanity
The timeline of the Libyan Civil War begins on 15 February 2011 and ends on 20 October 2011. It begins with a series of peaceful protests, similar to others of the Arab Spring, later becoming a full-scale civil war between the forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi’s government and the anti-Gaddafi forces.
The conflict can roughly be divided into two periods before and after external military intervention authorized by United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973.
Estimates of deaths in the Libyan Civil War vary with figures from 2,500 to 25,000 given between March 2 and October 2, 2011. An exact figure is hard to ascertain, partly due to a media clamp-down by the Libyan government. Some conservative estimates have been released.
What happened in Iraq?
The invasion of Iraq by the United States and coalition forces in March 2003 saw the beginning of the Iraq War, a conflict that would continue beyond the end of the decade. Fatalities of American forces were highest in the first five years of conflict as soldiers grappled with the Al Qaeda as well as civil war between those groups seeking to fill the power vacuum left by the removal of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein
From March 1, 2003, to June 30, 2011, the crude death rate in Iraq was 4.55 per 1,000 person-years (95% uncertainty interval 3.74-5.27), more than 0.5 times higher than the death rate during the 26-mo period preceding the war, resulting in approximately 405,000 (95% uncertainty interval 48,000—751,000) excess deaths attributable to the conflict.
What happened in Afghanistan?
The United States invasion of Afghanistan occurred after the September 11 attacks in late 2001 and was supported by close US allies. … Its public aims were to dismantle al-Qaeda and deny it a safe base of operations in Afghanistan by removing the Taliban from power.
Since the initial objectives were completed, a coalition of over 40 countries (including all NATO members) formed a security mission in the country. The war has since mostly involved US and allied Afghan government troops battling Taliban insurgents. The war in Afghanistan is the longest war in US history which is continued since 2001 but could not win.
While the US formally ended combat operations in Afghanistan in December 2014, U.S. uniformed troops remain advising the Afghan security forces and engaging in combat,”
War has directly resulted in the deaths of 149,000 people in Afghanistan and Pakistan between 2001 and 2014.
That figure includes U.S. military members, contractors, and opposition fighters as well as at least 26,270 civilians in Afghanistan and 21,500 in Pakistan.
But as per Pakistan there were about 100,000 death had been reported the death of civil & military apart from the terrorism that Pakistan countered since 2001 in its own country. Suicide bombing, improvised bomb detonation that included not damaging public property but list thousands human lives.
These figures illustrate not only the drastic human cost of the U.S.-led ‘War on Terror’ that in Afghanistan since 2001 but also that the war is not over.
What happened in Yemen?
As press reported Oct 209, The Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED) currently records more than 100,000 reported fatalities in Yemen since 2015, including over 12,000 civilians killed in direct attacks. … ACLED’s Yemen data are collected in partnership with the Yemen Data Project, as well as estimates of more than 85,000 dead as a result of an ongoing famine due to the war.
The Yemeni Civil War is an ongoing conflict that began in 2015 between two factions: the Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi led Yemeni government and the Houthi armed movement, along with their supporters and allies. Both claim to constitute the official government of Yemen.
Concurrently, a coalition led by Saudi Arabia launched military operations by using air strikes to restore the former Yemeni government.
The United States provided intelligence and logistical support for the campaign.
The conflict has been widely seen as an extension of the Iran–Saudi Arabia proxy conflict and as a means to combat Iranian influence in the region.
In 2018, the United Nations warned that 13 million Yemeni civilians face starvation in what it says could become “the worst famine in the world in 100 years.”
The international community has sharply condemned the Saudi Arabian-led bombing campaign, which has included widespread bombing of civilian areas.
The bombing campaign has killed or injured an estimated 17,729 civilians as of March 2019 according to the Yemen Data Project. Despite this, the crisis has only recently begun to gain as much international media attention as the Syrian Civil War.
The US has been providing bombs to aid the Saudi forces and airstrikes in Yemen
The fact that all five states have deep structural problems that make them “failed states” in many similar areas of governance, major social changes, and development.
It shows that these failures are so serious that they make the “host country” or national government a key cause of civil unrest and conflict and – in many ways – as much of a threat as the extremist and terrorist movements the U.S. is seeking to defeat.
So in a nutshell US must not intervene in other’s affairs let the States decide their own fate……….please give a peaceful environment to the countries exists along with you.
