Is America being isolated Globally?

Published

on

It has been historically proven that all US administrations pursue an “America First” policy. The current US administration has not abandoned its traditional route but has put aside all diplomatic etiquette while traveling on this route. Over the past few years, we have seen several unilateral decisions in which the United States has largely ignored its closest allies. At the moment, the question is circulating in the world media, especially in the American media, whether the close allies of the United States have been left behind due to the rapid advancement of this path of protectionism. Isn’t America isolated globally?

In this context, see an interview given by German Chancellor Angela Merkel to the British newspaper “The Guardian” on June 26. She says that if the United States abandons its role as a world power, Germany will have to reconsider its relations between the two countries in the future. In a related interview, The Guardian reports that in recent years there have been differences between Germany and the United States over military spending, climate change, trade disputes, the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, and the Iranian nuclear deal. On June 15, 2020, US President Trump said that there would be a significant reduction in US troops in Germany.

Commenting on the US attitude towards the Russia-US gas pipeline, German broadcaster Deutsche Welle commentator Maudrag Zorich said, “Does Germany have the right to protect its interests? If you ask the US government, the answer would be Yes, but only with American blessings!” The United States has threatened to impose sanctions on European companies over the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline between Russia and Germany. The pipeline is 96 percent complete. Laying at the bottom of the Baltic Sea, the natural gas pipeline will run directly from Russia to Germany and then from there to other EU countries.

The German economy is dependent on exports, and it is important to ensure the supply of energy for its industry and trade. That’s why both the German business community and the government are in favor of building the pipeline, but the White House doesn’t care. President Trump is determined to stop this pipeline, no matter what.

Former US ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell is among those who have been urging Trump to do the same. However, this less diplomatic ambassador has finally contributed to the improvement of bilateral relations between the United States and Germany. He resigned on June 1 and left Germany.

According to analysts, the biggest beneficiary will be China. When Western countries fight each other, it makes China stronger than the United States. If this attitude continues, the United States will not be able to rely heavily on Europe in its trade war with China. Germany will assume the semi-annual presidency of the European Union in July. Merkel still intends to meet with all EU leaders, including Chinese President Xi Jinping, at some point.

On several occasions in recent years, the United States has made unilateral decisions, ignoring its allies. CNN commented on the 28th that the United States is a helpless child who is becoming an unreliable ally in the COVID-19 epidemic, and more lonely than at any time in history. The article concludes that Trump’s advice on injecting antibiotics and taking hydroxychloroquine in the face of the seriousness of the epidemic not only disproved health experts but also rendered Trump’s views ineffective. Compared to China, the United States has failed to protect its people.

At the World Health Organization’s annual meeting in May this year, Europe faced intense US pressure to investigate the Chinese response to the epidemic. In this regard, the article cites a statement by former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt. He said that looking at the post-US world, it is clear that China’s strategic vision is clearer and that China is a more confident country. The European Union is trying to save global cooperation from catastrophe, while the United States is more interested in fighting China than in dealing with the COVID-19 epidemic.

The New York Times recently revealed that the European Union would gradually open its borders from July 1, but that US tourists could be temporarily barred from entering. Not only would this be a major blow to America’s reputation, but it would also be a blatant denial of Trump’s claims of an epidemic. The article argues that the United States can no longer hide its “dissatisfaction” with the outside world in many areas. Whether it’s the field of international cooperation, trade, NATO, or Syria, etc., because of Trump’s uncertainty, Europe is now likely to be on China’s side. Trump has severed many ties with prospective international norms, at the expense of the rest of the world. If this continues, the United States may be more isolated than it has been in decades.

Will Pakistan Recognize and Accept Israel?

Published

on

The Muslim world is at a new turning point in history. The distance between Arabia and Israel seems to be closing. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince have met. The US Secretary of State was also present at the meeting in Saudi Arabia. The world media is shouting at this meeting. If this news is true then it is a great development in world politics. The UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan have already joined Israel. What color will this friendship with Israel bring to the Arabs? Why are the Arab countries so anxious to embrace yesterday’s enemy? Will Pak-Israel anger last forever?

While the new global political development is a source of joy for the minority, it is also a source of unhappiness for the majority. Questions about recent developments also need to be answered. Experts say the meeting took place and that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu arrived in a private jet with the Mossad chief. He met secretly with the Saudi Crown Prince. The problem is that the results of the recent US election have upset many countries, including Saudi Arabia. After Biden’s victory, Saudi Arabia fears what the new US president will do. Saudi Arabia wants the support of the Israeli lobby in the United States. Saudi Arabia has extended a hand of friendship to both Turkey and Israel. Saudi Arabia does not want its relations with the United States to rupture. Will Saudi Arabia’s efforts work?

The first is that US foreign policy has implications. Four Muslim countries were destroyed by US foreign policy. Libya was devastated by Obama and Hillary. Had it not been for Russia and Hezbollah behind Assad in Syria, it would have been like Libya. The situation in Iraq and Afghanistan is also in front of everyone. The situation in Afghanistan and Iraq hurt the United States. Trump has not started new wars. Biden is under the influence of former US President Barack Obama. They are “dense” like them. Such people are dangerous. This threat is making the world restless.

Iran has also linked Biden’s victory to goodwill. Iran hopes sanctions will be eased. Trade routes to Europe will open for Iran. Pakistan will also benefit from easing sanctions on Iran. Pakistan’s goods will go to Iran and Iran’s goods will come to Pakistan. Saudi Arabia wants to curb Iran’s influence in the region. If anyone can look Israel in the eye, it is Iran and Turkey. Saudi Arabia will not be made of Iran. It is said that the enemy of the enemy is the friend, Saudi Arabia is also going to sacrifice its long-standing policy under the same policy.

The question is, when Pakistan’s friends are raising the bar of love and friendship with Israel, will Pakistan lag behind in this race? Will Pak-Israel anger last forever? Prime Minister Imran Khan’s position on Palestine is the position of the nation, in which he said that our policy on relations with Israel is the same as that of the founder of Pakistan. The founders of Pakistan have always rejected relations with Israel. He used to say, “This is a dagger inserted in the heart of the Ummah. This is an illegitimate state which Pakistan will never recognize.”

Our position cannot be linked to the position of the Arab League or the OIC. Our position is based on the position of the founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam. If Pakistan backs away from the Palestinian policy, it will deviate from the Kashmir policy. Pakistan is a non-Arab country that has taken part in two wars against Israel. Pakistan’s policy is clear and cannot be changed. But our Prime Minister is second to none in changing his stance on every issue. As soon as the news of the Saudi Crown Prince’s meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister came, a certain group in Pakistan was deployed to form a consensus to recognize Israel.

A lobby of specialized intellectuals and journalists has begun work on the “Acceptable” mission. The government has started throwing leaves through social media. The past shows that our Prime Minister jumps to great heights, in this case too. If that happened then his followers would accept it as a blessing.

Russia Released the video of the “TSAR BOMBA” (King of Bombs) Explosion

Published

on

Russia has released a video of the world’s most powerful explosion, which was carried out experimentally in October 1961 during the Soviet era. It was actually a hydrogen bomb with an explosive power of 3,300 times that of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

The bomb, dubbed the “Tsar Bomba” (King of Bombs), was dropped on an island near the North Pole and detonated in the air at an altitude of 4 km above the ground.

With an explosive power of 50 megatons (50 million tons) of TNT, this hydrogen bomb is considered to be the most powerful bomb in human history, designed by the famous Soviet scientist Andrei Sakharov. This is the same Andrei Sakharov who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1975 after defecting from the Soviet Union.

The 40-minute video was uploaded to YouTube by the Russian Atomic Energy Agency a few days ago, in which the countdown to the bombing begins at 22 minutes and 22 seconds:

The blast was so intense and large that it could be seen from a distance of a thousand kilometers, while its heat was felt at a distance of 250 kilometers.

The cloud formed by the explosion of this hydrogen bomb was so high that it reached an altitude of about 700 km, that is, the point where the Earth’s atmosphere ends and space begins.

We don’t know if there is an even more powerful hydrogen bomb in the world, but we do know that it was the most powerful experimental explosion in human history.

It should be noted that the original and technical name of the hydrogen bomb is “thermonuclear bomb”, the explosion of which emits tremendous energy in the form of light, heat, and shock waves but the emission of radioactive rays is much lower than that of a normal atomic bomb.

Father Sold his Daughter To Buy A Smartphone and Motorcycle

Published

We often fall in with stories on social media and news channels highlighting the brutal face of the mentally sick people of the society.

Although, the crime rate has been declined amidst the coronavirus pandemic but a few people are out there to show their bestiality to the world by committing heinous conduct.

According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), an average of 80 murders, 289 abductions, and 91 rapes were reported across the country in 2018 in India on a daily basis.

A new heart-wrenching incident took place in the Chikkaballhar district of India. An inexorable father sold his daughter, who was only three years old, to buy a smartphone and motorcycle.

He sold his daughter to a childless couple for INR 100,000. And he bought a smartphone for INR 15,000 and a motorcycle for INR 50,000 with the money he got.

The parents had tried to sell the baby to a family in Bengaluru when she was born, but their plan failed as the hospital authority meddled. After this, another person got the wind of the situation and made a deal with them on the behest of a childless couple in another village.

After the man used all the money, his neighbor grew skeptical, and they found out that his daughter had not been at home. They informed the police who inquired some villagers including the mother of the baby. The child welfare committee found the girl and a case has been filed against the couple.

The father took to his heel but the mother was incarcerated. The authority interrogated her and she brought to the light that her husband had intimidated her that’s why she allowed selling her daughter.

What could be the rhyme and reason that goaded the parents to sell their own blood? Either they are mentally sick or the financial problems made them sell their three years old baby.
