Military Review

In the Senate, the United States urged to end the policy of "regime change"

35
A member of the Senate Committee on International Affairs, Republican Rand Paul called for an end to the policy of “regime change”, which often “only gets worse,” reports RIA News.




We fight too long and in too many places. If we want to fight less, then we must come to the understanding that regime change does not work, that regime change often only gets worse,
said the senator, speaking to members of the committee, who should soon vote on Mike Pompeo’s candidacy for the post of state secretary.

As an example, Paul cited the situation in Libya and Iraq, after armed intervention in the internal affairs of which America did not feel more secure. Moreover, this intervention “strengthened Iran” and now it is “the best ally of Iraq.”

Earlier, the senator said he would support Pompeo’s candidacy, since he had received assurances from President Trump that the United States would reduce its military presence in Afghanistan and Iraq.

        The voice of one crying in the wilderness ..... The USA is not happy with the “color” and non-color revolutions for the sake of fun. Regimes change to those that will unquestioningly help the United States in robbing these countries.

          Yes. Did you manage to rob a lot in Afghanistan? They are sitting at the bases and are afraid to stick their nose out.
          In Libya, it’s easier there, but in Syria, they with Bashar for a fifth of the money spent on the war would solve all the problems. Like in Iraq. hi

            Here it must be understood that the US state apparatus has long turned into an instrument to satisfy the interests of individual oligarchic clans. The benefits of waging wars for the United States as a state are none, they continue to plunge into the debt hole. All benefits go to the expense of the oligarchic clans. This kills the US economy, which for the most part rests solely on global financial dominance and the "production" of virtual financial "products." If investments in the "investment project" of waging many wars were profitable, then the US public debt would have already begun to decline long ago, but it is only increasing faster. This was stated by Paul, although a weighty “argument” by interested parties was put in advance on his opinion.

            Well, why, in Afghanistan, the area of ​​flower plantations has increased significantly. Revenues, presumably, too. Are not Americans making a profit? belay

          Of course. But now their "activity" has reached the limit when the curve of faith in the hegemon climbed down. Recent events in Armenia are an example of this. Sherkhan missed.

      Well, there are glimpses, all people, tired people live in constant lies. Rest, change his mind, senior comrades will send. After all, it only gets worse where the United States changes governments, and in the United States everything is in order. Loot flows, markets and minerals are captured.

        The United States lived on the robbery and destruction of other peoples, we live and will live .. One of us, "Ivan" is naive with its principles "for justice and world peace" to them like a bone in the throat ... So we are constantly poisoned and try to bleed to sink. soldier Well, guys, nothing, we learned a lot and understood a lot at last .. Now we will beat them with their own weapons! And if you fight, then immediately water the "hornet’s nest" (all coordinates have already been entered, just press the button)! negative

      At the household level, excellent people live there (in the USA) (personal experience).
      Since someone began to say something on the political one that Trump had been saying for a long time, then his influence, oddly enough, affects.
      Let there be more such words and, most importantly, deeds. You look, and life will get better with the Americans. hi

    To take away from the USA the right to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries is like taking a favorite toy from a child.

      Trump is a pragmatic politician. In my opinion, he alone understands that the US problems are more internal, related to imbalances in politics and economics. The problem is that Trump decides little.

    That is, the US authorities do not hide their interference in the internal affairs of sovereign countries? And they even admitted that they bring chaos to these countries!
    But in general, once again convinced, Trump agent of Putin! Well this is necessary, how cleverly he adapted the latest types of weapons to Putin! The operation must be introduced into all training courses for foreign intelligence operatives!

    The idea is certainly sound, but something tells me that a scandal will happen to this senator. Harassment is either booze or something else ... When 70-80-year-old seniors are sitting in the Senate, and money bags are in the compartment with them, which unleash coups in order to please the interests of their business, it's hard to believe that anyone will hear you. Is CNN interesting or what other media company did the statement of this senator sound on air? It seems that no.

    Finally, at least someone's brains turned on. You can even develop his thought, fantasize. For example, Russia was torn to pieces by 10-15 smaller states, they ousted Putin and other "sinister" people. So, what is next? Five to ten post-Russian states will have nuclear arsenals. Will this make it easier for the Americans? Is it really impossible to calculate the consequences a little?

    The "naive" "uncle" (there are some in the US Senate) still believes in "American values" and believes that the United States is fighting abroad for the sake of "internal security" ..... although, here in VO, it’s full of those who also believes that Russia in Syria is doing the same thing .... wink
