US-Dominated Western Decline

US-Dominated Western Decline

by Stephen Lendman

China, Russia, India, Iran and other independent nations are rising in prominence on the world stage — while decadent US/Western ones are declining.

Their imperial arrogance has been hastening it for years, their unipolar moment fading in plain sight, multilateralism replacing it. See below.

What's going on has been most apparent since the 9/11 mother of all state-sponsored false flags to that time.

Things took a giant step in the wrong direction after undemocratic Dems stole election 2020, installed an imposter, know-nothing, mumbling bumbling buffoon in the White House and launched proxy hot and all-out sanctions war on Russia.

At the same time, their Asia/Pacific actions are heading in the same direction against China.

Reading pre-scripted lines for him to recite on Sunday, the fake Biden said that the empire of lies and forever wars would defend Taiwan — a breakaway Chinese province — if Beijing attacks the island.

At the same time, the Biden regime virtually abandoned hegemon USA's One China policy, what's been officially followed since Richard Nixon's February 1972 visit to Beijing.

In a July phone conversation between Chinese President, Xi Jinping, and the White House imposter, Xi warned against playing with fire over Taiwan, stressing:

"Those who play with fire will perish by it."

Yet when asked last October if the empire of lies and forever wars on invented enemies would defend Taiwan, the fake Biden said:

"Yes, we have a commitment to do that."

The risk of direct US belligerent confrontation against Russia and China was never greater than since undemocratic Dems usurped power by the most brazen election fraud in the nation's history. 

Peace-loving people everywhere tremble about what would be catastrophic if occurs.

Longstanding hegemon USA nuclear policy calls for using these WMDs against designated enemies.

Unthinkable nuclear war is no longer speculation. Nor has it been since at least throughout new millennium years.

Chances of it occurring by hegemon USA against one or more invented enemies is ominously high.

Last week, during the September 15 – 16 Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit, Vladimir Putin and China's Xi Jinping changed the rules of the game between their nations — together with growing numbers of allies — and the US-dominated West.

Henceforth, the empire of lies and forever wars will be treated as a pariah state, an enemy of peace-loving nations worldwide, as a state sponsor of Nazified terrorism for planning, orchestrating, directing and controlling the Kiev regime's war on Russia and people of Donbass.

At the same time, Russia and China have real leadership — in stark contrast to the illegitimate White House imposter, a figure hauled out to recite or paraphrase pre-scripted lines, remarks prepared by his handlers.

A previous article discussed Vladimir Putin's unscripted, straight talk remarks in response to questions by reporters — following the two-day SCO summit last week in Samarkand, Uzbekistan.

Nothing was prepared in advance for him to recite. 

No teleprompter or cheat sheets were used, none needed by one of the world's most prominent leaders. 

The same reality applies to China's Xi Jinping.

With the rules of the game changed henceforth, Xi stressed the growing prominence of growing numbers of SCO member-states.

He called the alliance "an important constructive force in international and regional affairs…(that's) well-positioned in the face of changing international dynamics…"

And he stressed the following:

The importance of "enhanc(ing) mutual support."

The need to "guard against attempts by external forces to instigate 'color revolution(s)' " — leaving no doubt about what nation he holds most responsible.

The "need to expand security cooperation" to defend against external forces, ones pursuing diabolical aims.

China's Global Security Initiative "address(es) the peace deficit and global security challenges."

"It calls on all countries to stay true to the vision of common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security and build a balanced, effective and sustainable security architecture."

And Xi called for joint anti-terrorism exercises (to) crack down hard on terrorism, separatism and extremism, drug trafficking as well as cyber and transnational organized crimes" — what US-dominated Western regimes are infamous for.

Xi also stressed the "need to deepen (what he called) practical cooperation" — to "deliver a better life for people of all countries," ones involved in fostering peace, stability and mutual cooperation, according to the rule of law.

And he called for the "need to enhance people-to-people and cultural exchanges."

They "promote integration among civilizations, which, in turn, enables (them) to advance (cooperatively) in  areas (of) education, science and technology, culture, health, (and) media…"

He also stressed the "need to uphold multilateralism" — putting an end to the US-dominated unipolar moment once and for all.

China and Russia both support SCO expansion to include growing numbers of member-states, ones supporting SCO principles — what's worlds apart from hegemon USA's drive for unchallenged global dominance by brute force when lesser diabolical tactics fall short.

Looking ahead, growing numbers of nations no longer bow the will of an exploitive higher power in Washington.

Hegemon USA was at the height of its power post-WW II.

Yet for decades it's been in slow-motion decline, perhaps begun by its lost Southeast Asia war of aggression a half century ago.

What I explained before bears repeating in updated form.

What's going on is the same dynamic that doomed all other empires in history.

Nor will hegemon USA be an exception to the rule. 

It's a nation in decline because of its imperial arrogance, hubris, its endless wars against invented enemies, and unwillingness to change its wicked.

And what goes for the nation of lies applies in similar fashion to its western partners in crimes of war, against humanity and other exploitive practices.

Instead of abandoning the sinking US ship of state in their own self-interest, they're going down with it.
