By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
Suddenly, the United States Government (USG) cares about the human rights of the people of Venezuela. Who really believes that?
When, in the history of the United States (US), has the USG cared about human rights?
Did the USG care about the human rights of the indigenous people of America?
Did the USG care about the human rights of the black slaves brought against their will from Africa to America?
And, has the USG cared about the human rights of Puerto Ricans during its 120 years of US colonialism despite the fact that it is prohibited by the United Nations’ (UN) Charter?
The UN calls it a crime against humanity! Yet the USG pretends to care about crimes against humanity in other nations, when it has at home ignored 37 UN resolutions asking the USG to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.
Only the people who are ignorant of US history could believe the reason that the USG is giving for wanting to go to war with Venezuela. History taught us that appeasement did not work with Adolf Hitler. Andhistory need not have to teach us again that it will not work with the 1% that control the USG.
The good people of the world must engage in permanent resistance to force their governments to represent 100% of their citizens like real democracies are supposed to do.
We must, because those who care more about profits than human rights, don’t really believe in LIBERTY OR IN JUSTICE FOR ALL!
Appeasement didn’t work with Hitler.
