Colonialism is a vile crime against people and humanity

10 greatest crimes against humanity committed by the white colonialists

1. Invasion and colonisation of countries of the world.

2. Looting and plundering of countries of the world.

3. Stealing the lands of natives of the world.

4. Genocides and atrocities against native Americans and natives of invaded and colonised countries.

5. Slavery of Africans leading to untold sufferings and miseries.

6. Poisoning millions of Chinese with opium leading to untold sufferings and miseries.

7. Butchering of Arabs and Muslims. 

8. Endless wars and endless killings of human beans.

9. Abusing Christianity that led to the murder and massacre of millions of non believers all over the world.

10. Using weapons of mass destruction, ie atomic bombs, biological and chemical weapons that destroyed lives and the environment.

Western media and historians wrote about Colonialism as if it is something glory in nature, a triumph of the West against the people of the world.  The above are some of the major crimes of Colonialism inflicted on the people of the world with no regards to human rights, rights to properties, national territorial integrity and the subjugation of natives of respective countries turning them into slaves aka subjects of the Empires. Colonialism in short is about killings and forcefully taking over other people's lives, land and properties.

The glorification of Colonialism and the propaganda pushed out by the West with their control of western media have numbed the minds of the colonised people to the point that they accepted them as part of natural history for the West to conquer, kill, loot and plunder their land and subdued them as sub humans, totally forgetting about the violations to their rights as human beans and their human rights to live as free people. The robbing of their land and resources have been passed off as an acceptable process, nothing to quibble about.

The debt Britain owed to China alone is so huge that the selling of the whole British Isle to repay China would still not be enough. The crimes committed by the British against China and Chinese people include the following:

1. Forcefully selling opium to the Chinese people by British gunboats for several decades.

2. Conducted two wars against China just to sell opium to the Chinese people, leading to death and destruction of millions of Chinese people and properties.

3. Burning down of the Summer Palace but before looting all the treasures in the Palace.

4. Forcing China to pay war reparations and indemnities in the hundreds of millions of silver taels that bankrupted the Chinese government of the day for more than a century, leading to poverty across China.

5. Forcing China to sign Unequal Treaties ending in losing control of Chinese sovereignty and income from trade and tariffs.

6. Signing of concessions of Chinese land in Shanghai.

7. Seizing Hong Kong and New Territories from China for 150 years.

8. Semi colonised China and humiliating China and dignity of Chinese people for more than a century.

Just these eight items alone, if quantified into monetary terms, would be more than the value of selling the whole British Isle to compensate China for the sufferings and destruction of the two Opium Wars and other wars fought to subdue China.

The British must remember that the debt to China must be paid one day. And so is the debt to the rest of the colonised countries in Africa, Middle East, Asia, Latin America and the Pacific Islands. The conquest and rule of India for more than two centuries would be a debt far greater than what they have to pay to China.

Britain would one day be carved out by the rest of the world that had fallen victims to the British Empire. Every 'Commonwealth' country has a right to demand for compensation from the British for invading their countries and plundering their countries and depriving them of human rights and human decency.

And the British is not alone.  All the European powers would have to pay back as well. Their crimes against the world has yet to be settled and will be settled one day. Covid19 is doing the weakening of the western ex colonial powers for a start. The reset button has been activated.

Wars are vicious, cruel, uncivilised, destructive to lives and properties and must be stopped. Civilised people do not resort to wars at the slightest excuse. Only wildlife, primitive aggressive beans that could not be civilised, would want to fight wars everyday.

Trump pardon of Blackwater Iraq contractors violates international law: U.N.
Wed, 30 December 2020, 7:06 pm SGT

GENEVA (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump's pardon of four American men convicted of killing Iraqi civilians while working as contractors in 2007 violated U.S. obligations under international law, U.N. human rights experts said on Wednesday.

Nicholas Slatten was convicted of first-degree murder, while Paul Slough, Evan Liberty and Dustin Heard were convicted of voluntary and attempted manslaughter, over the incident in which U.S. contractors opened fire in busy traffic in a Baghdad square and killed 14 unarmed Iraqi civilians.

The four contractors, who worked for the private security firm Blackwater owned by the brother of Trump's education secretary, were included in a wave of pre-Christmas pardons announced by the White House.

“Pardoning the Blackwater contractors is an affront to justice and to the victims of the Nisour Square massacre and their families,” said Jelena Aparac, chair of the U.N. working group on the use of mercenaries, said in a statement.

The Geneva Conventions oblige states to hold war criminals accountable for their crimes, even when they act as private security contractors, the U.N. experts said.

"These pardons violate U.S. obligations under international law and more broadly undermine humanitarian law and human rights at a global level."

By allowing private security contractors to "operate with impunity in armed conflicts", states will be emboldened to circumvent their obligations under humanitarian law, they said.

If Trump can pardon all his partners in crime, what does this tell us about the working of democracy in the USA? It is a farce! And all the while they say they follow the law. Law of the Jungle would be the appropriate truth.

Now that Trump has crossed the line, God knows what future USA Presidents will do in an attempt to outdo Trump's legacy? After all, Trump already sets the example that if he can get away with anything, others can too.

USA no longer feels any shame in the eyes of the world. And Biden said he wants to bring back respect for the USA. How? Respect is earned, not dictated.

While America keeps on attacking other countries just to create tension and possibly wars around the world, these evil men are blind to what is happening to their country.

God is punishing them relentlessly with the Covid19 virus. England is thrown into the snake pits for good.

Repent or you shalt perish, you evil doers.

Trump nor the USA is not above the law, international laws, whether he or USA recognise the international bodies and organisations or not. Period.

What Trump has done is not to make America great but make Americans stink!

USA is on the decline, decaying, rotting and dying. It's stinking stench from the gangrene body is spreading and felt far and wide.

No country can escape from smelling the stench of the rotten USA.

The time for USA to disintegrate and disappear is very near. The world is awakening to the enormous Evils that USA has brought upon all of us. All it needs is a final push with concerted collective efforts by all nations to ensure that this Evil Monster is destroyed once for all.

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year!

It will take time for the decline, decay and rot to bring down the USA, but it is clearly happening. Internal strife and external condemnation is getting more visible by the day. Aided by the COVID19, the fall is gaining momentum.

The US$ is losing value and China just announced it is lowering its weighting of the US$ and raising the weighting of the Euro in it's key financial compass. Against other currencies, the US$ has fallen markedly over the last year.

China has the time, the conviction and the ability to withstand the wait. After all, China lost a century of progress by the actions of the West and still managed to rise from the ashes. As saying goes, a gentleman's revenge is not too late even after ten years. Let's make it a hundred years or a century.

The stupid Trump and Pompeo keep on attacking China and banning Chinese companies and think there are no consequences. China will stop buying Treasury Bills, will dump Treasury Bills. When China makes the first move, it will be like the run of the bank. The rest will follow.

China and EU just signed a major trade agreement against the wishes of the Americans. China and EU will trade more and leave out the US in the cold. The EU has had enough of American bullying and arm twisting, and wants to be independent to chart their own future. US$ will be abandoned in favour of Euros and RMB in China EU trades.

The EU is a huge market and trade between China and the EU will see the Euro gaining demand amid the falling US$. After all, there had been consistent talk of replacing the US$ with the Euro as the global reserve currency. Saddam and Gaddafi tried walking the talk by attempting to do the oil trade in Euros and got busted.

If the US$ keeps losing value, China's holding of US Treasury bills will also be affected. If trade in oil keeps falling, if China's effort to migrate to clean energy sources like hydro electric power, solar and wind, and electric vehicles proliferate, then China's need not hold that much reserves in US treasury bills for the oil trade.

The USA lately has been quite vocal, attacking China's building of dams at home and abroad for hydro electric power stations, claiming environmental damage, disaster scenarios and human rights violations. In reality it is the fear of the oil trade losing more traction with more clean energy sources being explored.

The COVID19 decimated the demand for fossil fuel, killing the oil fracking businesses in the USA, a project favourite of Trump. The Russian gas pipeline was sanctioned to prevent Russian gas going to Europe, to enable expensive gas from the USA to be sold to the EU countries. The EU countries know they have been taken as 'collateral damage' material by the USA and are wising up now.

China already using RMB to buy oil from Russia, Iran, Saudi and other suppliers. With the decoupling from the US economy, China has lesser need for American dollars and has started to dump them.

China's holding of US debt is decreasingly rapidly.
