Chinese Analyst Accuses West Of Destabilizing The World

Calling a spade a spade, Chinese analyst Zhao Jinglun, in the opinion column Sunday, listed the decade-long violent and sinful wars raged by the western powers. The analyst led off by accusing the western leaders' air raid against Qaddafi as the prime action that strengthened Boko Haram in Nigeria and that led to its mass abduction of schoolgirls. In addition to what is happening now in Nigeria, Zhao said the fall of Qaddafi not only resulted in the splintering of Libya into warring tribal territories, but also destabilized northern Africa, especially Mali and Algeria.

Zhao pointed out that Obama, Cameron, and the now-retired Sarkozy, the former French president, justified their air attacks on Libya by claiming that Qaddafi was evil. Saddam Hussein was also toppled by the U.S. and Britain and killed on a similar justification, Zhao said.

"George W. Bush and Tony Blair invaded Iraq in 2003, accusing Saddam Hussein of possessing weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and somehow having a hand in the 9/11 terror attacks. Both were lies. No WMD were found anywhere in occupied Iraq, and there was no Al-Qaeda in Iraq."

Zhao concluded by saying that the toppling and killing of Saddam Hussein not only intensified the ethnic and religious conflicts between the Shi'ites and Sunnis throughout the greater Middle East, but also brought Al-Qaeda into Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Lebanon, and Libya.
