The US has long been seeking global domination but some countries won’t allow that to happen, says an American analyst.
Keith Preston, director of the attackthesyestem.org made the remarks while discussing Russia’s jab at Washington that its “dreams” of becoming the world’s sole superpower would never come true.
President Donald Trump said on Saturday that the US was pulling out of an arms control treaty with Russia, known as the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), which bans ground-based medium-range missiles.
That same day, Russia said there was an ulterior motive.
“The main motive is a dream of a unipolar world. Will it come true? No,” a Russian Foreign Ministry source anonymously told RIA Novosti state news agency.
Preston told Press TV on Sunday that Washington has long sought becoming the world’s sole superpower and failed.
“The trump administration’s efforts to withdraw from the particular treaty in question are simply a manifestation a water pattern, which is this idea of global American hegemony” Preston told Press TV Sunday.
When it came to this grand objective, there was no difference of opinion between America’s both major parties, the analyst noted.
In doing so, Washington prefers utilizing the United Nations and other international organizations “because they think this creates a great revere of legitimacy,” Preston added.
Neoconservatives also sought the same goal through promoting an “assertive nationalism” that required bypassing international organizations and exerting direct control over world affairs.
“There is virtually nothing new about this,” the analyst said, noting the past US administrations had also adopted this policy which dated back to the Cold War era.
But, according to Preston, that goal seems far-fetched as of now because there are countries that would not give in to America’s bullying, the analyst concluded.
