According to former Secretary General of NATO Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the US should return its role of the “world’s policeman” in order to solve conflicts of other countries.
Former Secretary General of NATO Anders Fogh Rasmussen is sure that the US should more actively participate in solving of world conflicts.
“We need America as the world’s policeman. We need determined American global leadership,” Rasmussen said in an interview to the British Sky News TV-channel.
Listing the world’s problems that need urgent solving, the ex-secretary of the alliance mentioned Syria, Iraq, Libya and the east of Ukraine. According to his words, “superpowers don’t get to retire.”
“Look around you will see a world on fire. Syria [is] torn by war and conflict. Iraq [is] on the brink of collapse. Libya [is] a failed state in North Africa. Russia [is] attacking Ukraine and destabilising Eastern Europe. China [is] flexing its muscles, the rogue state North Korea [is] threatening nuclear attacks,” Rasmussen said.
He also noted that current US president Barack Obama “has been too reluctant to use military force or threaten to use military force to prevent conflicts in the world.”
The former Secretary General expressed concern about the fact that a Republican Donald Trump may become the new US leader. Rasmussen believes that election of the billionaire on the top position “could be very dangerous for the world.”
But who pulled Syria apart with the war and conflict, promoting the so-called Arab Spring? Who led Iraq to the breakdown, invading it in 2003? Who made Libya a failed state, carrying out an aggression against the sovereign state? Who destabilized the situation in Ukraine, carrying out a coup in Kiev and overthrowing the legitimate president? All examples of Rasmussen are amazing.
In the world of Rasmussen everything is very simple – vote for Clinton. The ex-NATO chief believes it is not important that Hillary Clinton had a finger in a pie of the most part of the world’s problems, mentioned by him. According to Rasmussen , the US just needs to use the Armed Forces more often. This is solution.
