Today, the United States is a global superpower that wields significant influence over the majority of the world. Therefore, the Presidential election that is only weeks away closely concerns other countries as much as it concerns America. Among these countries, the foremost are the Middle Eastern countries, which have witnessed extensive military and political interventions by the US.
As it is well known, the military operations carried out, initiated or supported by the USA in countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen under the slogans “The fight against terrorism,” “Establishing peace, security and democracy” have led to unprecedented destruction and catastrophes in Islamic countries.
Still pursued relentlessly today, these military practices and policies of violence have neither provided a remedy for terrorism nor brought any benefit to the region and its people. On the contrary, violence has spurred greater violence; nourished by bloodshed and vengeance, the radical elements have now become more fanatical and ferocious than ever. Regional terrorism has reached global proportions and turned into an intractable, full-scale threat.
The erroneous policies of various US governments have brought about economic crises along with social strains. Taking their leaders as role models, some citizens have begun to turn to violence as the primary solution in every aspect of life.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that the number of deaths due to gun violence in the US between 2004 and 2013 stood at 316,000 whereas for the same period, the number of deaths due to terrorism was a mere 36 as pointed out by the government.
Suicides and drug addiction are rampant among the veterans of Afghanistan and Iraq. Believed to be in hundreds, the annual suicide cases in the military remain unabated.
Curiously, regardless of the political perspective of the President and the government, be it right, left, Democrat, Republican or nationalist, the US foreign policies remain unchanged in every term. For example, following the Bush administration, President Obama rose to the White House on a promise to end the military presence of the USA in Iraq and Afghanistan. However today, the US military operations in Iraq and Syria continue at full steam, while President Obama announces that he will keep 8,400 troops in Afghanistan.
This situation, which seems contradictory at first sight, is clearly explained in the article “This is not a democracy: Behind the Deep State that Obama, Hillary or Trump couldn’t control” featured in the US-based news and analysis site Salon as follows:
“Foreign policy never really changes regardless of who holds the WhiteHouse.”
When considered from this standpoint, the policy institutes and the key figures within these organizations that guide the foreign policies of the US from behind the scenes play an active role at every turn. These organizations consist of big think tanks such as Chatham House, the CFR, the Brookings Institution, the Rand Corporation, the Carnegie Endowment and CSIS.
The mastermind and main operator above all these organizations is one of the most influential think tanks of the world, the UK-based Chatham House, founded in 1919, and its US representative, the CFR (Council of Foreign Relations). It is these Anglo-Saxon oriented deep state mechanisms which introduce from day one and fund the US Presidents that are “predetermined to be elected,” who manage their campaigns and perception operations, who provide them consultancy, and systematically eliminate their opponents.
Having handed out its traditional annual prize to Hillary Clinton in 2013, Chatham House seems to have already determined its Presidential Candidate at the time. The same organizations present their pre-established agenda through their publications and direct suggestions as policies to be pursued by the very presidents they have had elected.
In fact, the research report “The Future of US Global Leadership Implications for Europe, Canada and Transatlantic Cooperation,” which was published in May 2016 in cooperation with Chatham House, serves as a pre-established agenda and instruction letter for the future President. The following lines from the report are quite striking:
“The 2016 presidential election is likely to have only a limited influence on the long-term factors underlying US foreign policy. Whether a Republican or a Democrat wins the presidency, the next occupant of the White House is likely to be more openly interventionist than Obama.“
In short, if the new US President cannot escape the grip of Chatham House, the fate that awaits the Middle East and the Islamic world is quite disconcerting.
If the soon-to-be elected US President wants to achieve a historic success, they should display a fierce resolve and determination and cast aside these deep state-oriented politics and ideologies. They should not pursue survival-of-the-fittest policies at the behest of the Anglo-Saxon deep state and its affiliated extensions, such as the defense industry, the business world, the financial sector and the world’s central banks.
The new US President should be able to establish a new foreign policy in the Middle East, free from the influence of the United Kingdom. Instead of the biased reports of Chatham House, the CFR or the Rand Corporation, they should adopt rationalistic, prudent and humane measures that will bring peace, comfort and security to the people of the region. They should urgently cancel the unmasked and widely hated projects such as the Greater Middle East Initiative that intend to shape the region through bloodshed and violence.
Instead of learning the religion of Islam from Graham Fuller, Bernard Lewis, the Quilliam Foundation or the British-based think tanks, they should learn it from the true source of Islam, that is the Qur’an. They should realize that the only solution to eliminate the threat of radicalism and terrorism is through guiding people towards the true Islam preached by the Qur’an and base their policies regarding the Islamic world on the ideals of education, justice, peace and love.
In sum, the new President should start with a clean slate that is free from the hidden agendas imposed by the deep state mechanisms and their mentors, and based on the principles of wisdom, conscience and reason. They should look after the benefits and interests of the entire world and the whole of humanity instead of certain power groups. They should serve as an exemplary and leading model for all the countries suffering under the ruthless oppression of said power groups.
