14 Projecting its power eastward through NATO, a military alliance, Washington has not hesitated to provoke Russia by extending NATO membership and protection to former satellites and Republics of the Soviet Union. It decided to establish missile bases in Poland and the Czech Republic, recent additions to NATO, aimed, it argued, not at Russia, but at unfriendly state and non-state actors in the Middle-east. Moscow considered these measures challenges to its legitimate sphere of influence, its “near-abroad” and threatened, in response, to install its own missile sites aimed at America’s NATO allies.

How could the security facilities at two major airports have failed to detect the miscreants who hijacked the aircraft that destroyed the twin World Trade towers?

The trail for the authorization of these practices led to the Department of Justice and the White House itself. Similar examples of torture were revealed at the Guantanamo naval base in Cuba where detainees were confined in order to escape the jurisdiction of American courts. Other prisoners were “rendered” to friendly foreign governments for interrogation in CIAmanaged secret prisons under conditions where torture was routine. Knowledge that the US which preached human rights was actually practicing and condoning torture, combined with its decision to unilaterally invade and occupy a foreign country led to the worldwide collapse of respect for the United States.
