U.S. & Europe Trying to Overthrow Government in Belarus

As I have said many times, the Cold War never ended. The U.S. is now trying to get regime change in Belarus, just like it did in Georgia, Ukraine ("Orange Revolution"), Kazakhztan, and other places in Eastern Europe in recent years. The U.S. Cold War policy is always cooking up regime changes, wars, and wicked policies.

The U.S. is playing a dangerous game which could, and probably will backfire against not just the suits in Washington, but against the American people who are the ones who have to fight the wars that these old wealthy white men create.

The U.S. and Europe are funding the opposition in Belarus like it does in other Eastern European countries, and it is no doubt helping in the planning.
The goal of the U.S. is to surround Russia as much as possible, and the spread NATO as far East as possible, even risking war. The U.S. has doubled the size of NATO in the last 10 years or so, even bringing unstable governments into the organization.
Georgia and Ukraine are to be a part of NATO (Georgia may already be in... they have been adding countries so fast, I honestly lost track). These two countries have skirmishes and tit for tat conflicts with Russia as a routine. Why would anyone want these countries in NATO when it could create a crisis so easily?

Do the American people even know this stuff? No. Do the American people have a vote on NATO expansion and who gets in? No

Then why in the hell is this allowed to happen? Americans are the least knowledgeable about what's going on with NATO (of all NATO countries), yet it is American blood that will have to be spilled in larger amounts than any other group of people, if NATO ever had to act. The exposure and risks to America and to its people increases with each new NATO country, because that is one more country that the American people are obligated to defend. Also, each new country increases the chance of a conflict, because NATO increases its geographical area. In that case, shouldn't Americans be more aware of these decisions by Congress to increase our defense burden (without the knowledge or approval of the American people)?

These policies are aimed at Russia and China (Russia specifically), even though boneheads in Washington will say that the Cold War has ended (a lie they have been telling for a long time). What is interesting is that most of these new NATO countries add nothing of value to NATO's fighting capacity. These are mostly symbolic additions to NATO, designed primarily to antagonize and humiliate Russia. In fact, many of the new NATO countries have militaries that are so poor they are often a burden for NATO, rather than an enhancement.

When will the U.S. learn to stop meddling in the internal affairs of these countries?
We are better off giving moral support and nothing more. We fight for Democracy in these other countries yet we don't have Democracy right here in the United States.
These Democratic "Revolutions" must occur on their own, must be homegrown, and must happen naturally without outside help or interference. Instead of meddling, the U.S. should do a better job of being a good example. Technically, in my opinion, the U.S. is not even a Democracy....certainly not a sound one if you are talking about genuine Democratic principles. Therefore, if the U.S. wants to help Belarus and all these other countries, it can start by re-establishing Democracy right here at home. Then it will be the right example for other nations. The U.S. has its own problems with the lack of Democracy and Human Rights:

1. The lack of voter choice- a limit of 2 political parties

2. Voter fraud

3. Media monopolies

4. Lack of citizen involvement (by design) which is the absolute key for having a "Democracy"

5. Lack of voting power (no direct vote, & no power of national referendum on issues such as NATO, Port Security, Healthcare, etc)

6. Torture

7. Free speech problems

8. Mixing religion and politics

9. Gap between rich & poor

10. 1 in 5 children living in poverty

11. U.S. losing brain power- no emphasis on educating future generations

12. Largest Debt ever that will never be paid off

13. Largest Trade deficit ever

14. Nearly 50 million Americans without health insurance

15. Over 25 million people needing food aid to survive
