A MESSIAH Whom No One Loves!
The United States may feel it rightful to claim to be the benefactor and the leader of the world as an upholder of all her illusionary ideals of equality, peace, freedom, justice, as well as a champion of human rights. No doubt, for many people she is the Great Provider of their daily bread, giving food, money, and arms to scores of nations and assisting them in the implementation of their development plans in the name of Foreign Aid. But is it all just for the sake of charity? Out of human compassion for the suffering and starving nations? If it had been so, the whole world would have been worshipping the Great America, or at least would have been sincerely grateful to her. Masses all over the world should have been deeply in love with their “Messiah”. But is it really what America is getting in return? No, the reality is just opposite – she is the most hated country (may be after Israel?) on the face of the earth today.
A number of countries may feel protected against external aggression because of their defense pacts and other arrangements with America. For them, having friendly relations with the America is the greatest guarantee for having peace and maintaining their sovereignty. Yet, no one is sincerely thankful towards her. On the contrary, they never miss an opportunity to denounce her. An undercurrent of hatred is found everywhere against her, resulting in America having no sincere friends, no true well-wishers in any part of the world. The question is: Do the leaders of this great country not feel it? Are its thinkers blissfully unaware of this reality? No, they must be knowing that for all her dollars, what America is getting back is a kick here and a let-down there. But have they ever cared to go to the roots of the matter? If they do a little self-introspection, they will find that at the core of it all lies America’s own insincerity.
The entire concept and mechanism of aid and assistance devised by the United States is devoid of earnestness to serve the humanity. In the very first place, it is America herself that is responsible for whatever turmoil the poor nations are facing today. Her generosity in turn is again a cloak for the exploitation of the weaker and the poorer nations. She gives, but not to enable them to stand on their own feet. Her magnanimity is aimed at the perpetuation of their dependence upon her. It is a way to keep other nations in a perpetual debt so as to keep their loyalty, to disarm them against America – in one word, to force them to “Slavery”. Her so graciously donated “Foreign Aid” is thus a misleading term, a way of acting out and implementing her (America’s) imperialist designs in the garb of a messiah – a messiah whom no one really loves!
