Uncle Sam gets stuck in

As the US enters yet another election cycle (though it is hard to say whether the US is ever not in election mode these days), it is worth interrogating the current state of the world’s unipolar hyperpower – and of the foreign policy, red in tooth and claw, that affects us all.

The first thing that is important to recognise about the foreign policy of the United States of America is that it has a very specific history, or rather a national mythology that distinguishes it from other countries by the explicit nature of its revolutionary aims. The Revolutionary War established a unique republican state in the West, a reflection in part of the values of the French Revolution, but, isolated by the vast Atlantic, destined to pursue a path of its own. It is thus useful to consider the US state as an explicitly revolutionary state (albeit institutionalised in the Mexican sense of the word), with a national mythology which endows it with a sense of mission in the world. Comparable, though very different, states with expansionist missions driven by revolutionary myths would include Revolutionary France, the Soviet Union until its collapse, Nazi Germany, and post-apartheid South Africa today, with a ruling party explicitly dedicated to a “National Democratic Revolution”. The foreign policy and thus warmaking of Britain and the Netherlands, in contrast, despite having possessed globe-spanning pre-war empires, were never guided by anything similar to such political myths.

...para além da propaganda forjada na grande mídia internacional de uma suposta “ameaça iraniana” para a segurança da ordem internacional, o fato é que os Estados Unidos estão, por todos os meios, tentando forçar ações mais “ousadas” por parte do governo iraniano de forma a construir mais justificativas para uma futura invasão. Os Estados Unidos sabem que sanções econômicas nunca enfraquecem os regimes - quer ditatoriais quer não - que de alguma maneira se opõem a aceitar uma posição de governos clientelistas sob dominação estadunidense. Quanto ao enfraquecimento de um regime, sanções econômicas, de modo geral, se mostraram contra-produtivas. O que acaba por ocorrer é o fortalecimento do regime por maior apoio que passa a receber de sua população ou pelo aumento da repressão interna, que passa a justificar a repressão a qualquer movimento de oposição sob o argumento de que esses movimentos são financiados pelas forças imperialistas. Sanções sempre atacam mais a população do que o governo.

Les tambours de la guerre sonnent à nouveau au Moyen Orient. On assiste à une offensive concertée d’Israël, des États-Unis, de la France et du Royaume Uni contre l’Iran. Commencée il y a quelques semaines en Israël par un débat public sur la nécessité d’attaquer l’Iran avant qu’il se dote de l’arme nucléaire, la campagne a été relayée lors du G 20 à Nice par Obama et Sarkozy appelant à mettre une pression sans précédent sur l’Iran, et par des fuites dans la presse britannique faisant état de préparatifs de guerre du côté des USA et de la Grande Bretagne.
