Decline of American Imperialism and Rise of A New World Order

Published

on

Donald Trump blamed the World Health Organization (WHO) for incompetence, as he said that the US will decide whether to continue paying its contributions to such organizations or not. It is not the first time that Donald Trump criticized an international institution. Scholars argue that Trump is a capitalist with a fascist dictatorial mind-set. He criticizes international organizations because a big amount, to maintain the expenses of those institutions, is being paid by the USA. He also raised fingers on the importance of UNO. The USA is contributing almost 17% of the UNO budget. If U.S.A cuts its funding, it may be the end of UNO. Trump has taken a lot of unique initiatives, under the umbrella of its policy “America First”, which has changed the perception about America worldwide and it also paved the way for China’s rise as a new superpower.

Few initiatives were taken by Trump’s administration which has resulted in the downfall of the current world order, which we will discuss in the next few paragraphs.

Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on climate change is the biggest example of its capitalist mind-set. That agreement demanded the funds of $3.1billion from the U.S.A. According to trump’s view, this agreement will put the USA at a permanent disadvantage. Trump’s policy is to enhance the industry and provide jobs to American people. His priority is to eliminate all the hurdles to industrialization, and the Paris agreement was the biggest obstacle.

Trump’s policy includes the withdrawal of American troops from foreign lands because he doesn’t believe in waging wars. His focus is to make America great by boosting industries and providing jobs. Many scholars argue that the reason behind this decision was to counter China’s rise economically. They further state that this will turn the image of America into a soft superpower and will result in the loss of its credibility.

He has also reduced the number of army personnel in Syria and Iraq which is seen by many analysts as the biggest blunder that will backfire. Middle east is significant for the survival of American imperialism in Asia, but the withdrawal from these states will pave the way for other regional powers to fill the gap. By this decision, America will lose its influence in the Asian region.

For many decades, the security of South Korea and Japan has been dependant on American support. Both countries are the biggest allies of the US and also partners in many sectors. Now, the Trump administration has decided that both countries should develop their military capabilities or provide a big amount of money for American military support.

Trump has always been a critic of international institutions and societies. He congratulated Boris Johnson on its achievement of Brexit. This indicates that the US is no longer an advocate of unity and institutionalism.

Further, Trump has also threatened to block fundings to NATO, which is an important military institution for the stability of the EU, and if America did so, it will be the end of the US-EU relationship.

The USA was considered as a pioneer of capitalism through which they dominated the world economy. They propagated the idea of liberalism and capitalism throughout the world. But the recent trade war with China has shown the true face of American imperialism as the latter has turned away from the same capitalist ideologies which they have advocated all over the world.

Trump administration has stopped the military and economic aid to Ukraine for defense against Russia. Trump is less interested in world issues and more focused on reviving the economic power of America. To do so, Trump is diverting from its long-lasting allies, in terms of military and financial aid, which have been seen by many scholars as to the beginning of the downfall of America.

America was once considered a land of opportunity, and people came here for a better future, and it was the American ideology of the unrestricted flow of people and capital due to globalization and capitalism. But, now, Trump’s anti-immigration policy has shown the world that America is no longer abiding by its own created doctrine of liberalism.

These few initiatives show that the U.S.A, under the Trump administration, does not intend to stay longer in Asia to provide the roof of security or combat with terrorist activities in middle eastern countries, instead, they are more focused on internal development. Trump’s policy is just like the isolation policy that we have seen before the entrance of the USA in WW-II. Trump’s vision is to limit the intrusion into the world’s politics.

On the other side, China is ready to deliver its services. Its Belt initiative road is a game-changer that will complete in 2030. It soared many countries into its economic web of BRI. It is the vision of Xi Jinping, who is considered as the most influential leader of China, that will re-shape the entire region. He has resolved conflicts with many countries and included them in their BRI project. Although, the relations of India and Japan are not great with China due to several reasons, however, China has adopted policies that haven’t affected their trade. Even it has maintained its ties with the Philippines and South Korea. China has adopted the policy of co-operation with its neighbors. Alongside economic growth, China has also established military bases across the region to balance the influence of America in Asia and protect its trade routes. China has established “String of pearls” from the South China Sea to the European continent. China also started providing financial assistance to various countries that were once considered allies of the USA.

After the end of Convid-19, the world is gonna witness the rise of a new ‘World Order’ led by Asian powers.

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.

Why Shouldn’t Pakistan Accept Israel?

Published

on

Israel is a completely illegitimate state and was created by occupying Muslim territories. The blood of millions of Muslims was shed for the establishment of this state. Due to which the Muslim world did not establish relations with Israel and refused to recognize it, calling it an illegitimate state. But gradually some Muslim countries continued to accept it under the pressure of the USA or some personal interests. Some Muslim countries have recognized Israel while many countries have opposed this state, of which Pakistan is at the top. A few other Muslim countries also want to establish relations with Israel but have not yet dared to take such a step due to the fear of retaliation from their public. This illegitimate state of Israel was established on a purely ideological basis, so our differences with it are also ideological.

Pakistan is also an ideological state, the ideological basis of which is only Islam. Pakistan came into existence in the name of Islam and in the name of this religion, the people here got freedom. The survival of this country also lies in protecting Islamic ideology. If we look at the relations of Pakistan with other states, then the ideology of Islam is also driven in them and we establish relations with other states on an ideological basis. One of the states’ relations is with Israel. To date, Pakistan has not recognized Israel and before the current government, no one talked about recognizing this illegitimate state, let alone thought about it. But some members of the current government have spoken out, and Asma Hadid, a female member of parliament, has openly called for recognition of Israel and has brutally distorted Islamic references.

However, our relationship with Israel is purely ideological. Some people say that we should establish relations with Israel because it will benefit us. We should not be hostile to Israel for no reason. What has it done to us? What is our enmity with it? We must build relations with this country in view of our gains and losses. Such objections or arguments are often heard by our thinkers regarding the recognition of Israel. In the service of these gentlemen, it is kindly requested that ideology is also something. Religion, creed, and nation also have a status, Islamic brotherhood is also important topics of Islam. Should we put them all behind us for our small gain and loss? How much economic benefit will we get from establishing relations with Israel? What progress will we make? What benefits can Israel provide us that no other country is able to give us?

We are not making progress because of our poor policies, corruption, and mistakes. This is not to blame for the deterioration of relations with Israel. By establishing relations with Israel, we will not be able to gain any material benefit because our past experiences show that we have established relations with the United States. We have relations with many other countries but we are still in turmoil. We couldn’t get anything out of anyone. Therefore, by establishing relations with Israel as well, we will not be able to achieve anything but stifling our ideology. This will only hurt the interests of the Muslim Ummah and will demoralize the countries that are against Israel.

Therefore, we must protect our ideas and persevere them, and work with patience and perseverance in the face of any difficulties or troubles that may arise. We must put the interests of the Muslim Ummah before the petty personal interests. If all Muslim countries had taken the stand together and stood up against Israel, it would not have the courage to look up to Muslim countries today. But the Muslim countries’ own weaknesses gave it strength. Now the UAE has established relations with Israel and put back the interests of the Muslim Ummah and Islamic ideology. It remains to be seen how much they get benefits and how much relief they bring to the Palestinians.

It is futile to expect any good from non-Muslims, especially Jews and Christians. Therefore, Muslims should emphasize unity among themselves. Brotherhood and love should be promoted.
