People's Review - - LAST PAGE -

pres­i­dent of Panama Mauel Nor­iega was dragged from his of­fice by US se­cu­rity forces and put in jail for many years till he died at the age of 83. There was no cry of any hu­man rights vi­o­lence or direct for­eign in­ter­ven­tion. Min­now Amer­i­can al­lies are now at­tack­ing Ye­men, a free coun­try, but again no protests or any news from the he­roes of press free­dom. Now Nepal also has be­come a tar­get just be­cause it sits right un­der the “soft belly” of China, which is con­sid­ered an en­emy by Amer­ica be­cause of the eco­nomic growth that it has made and also its com­mu­nist gov­ern­ment. Once told that Amer­i­can mil­i­tary boots would never tread on Nepali soil, now a time has come when not only Nepali sol­diers are trained by Amer­i­can Rangers, but there is also the talk of a “joint mil­i­tary ex­er­cise”. Once an Is­raeli aca­demi­cian had said that coun­tries like China and Ja­pan among oth­ers could not be di­vided be­cause they had only one race and they were like “onions” which could only be peeled but not di­vided. But coun­tries like In­dia and the United States, be­cause of the di­vided com­mu­ni­ties there could be di­vided in the fu­ture. There is no doubt that In­dia is more vul­ner­a­ble as it has dif­fer­ent states with dif­fer­ent com­mu­ni­ties with dif­fer­ent lan­guage and dif­fer­ent cus­toms. One thing that binds the Unites States is its lan­guage. But there also dif­fer­ent com­mu­ni­ties have set­tled and made their own ground. Amer­ica is no more a melt­ing pot like said be­fore. In­di­ans could de­mand their own state Bangladeshis could de­mand their own state, His­pan­ics could de­mand for their own state and so on and so forth as many peo­ple from across the globe have set­tled there and they don't con­sider them­selves as red neck Amer­i­cans. Shoot­ings are tak­ing place where young stu­dents are be­ing killed, fam­i­lies have been butchered. Is­lamists are at­tack­ing sen­si­tive spots within Amer­ica and also abroad, so it is time for the Yanks to look af­ter their own prob­lems first, be­fore med­dling in other coun­tries and mak­ing more en­e­mies. So go home Yanks be­fore med­dling in other lands.
