    Weren’t the Khmer Rouge “anti-imperialist”?

    Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, the Japanese militarists called themselves anti imperialists, General Domingo Peron and General Lazaro Gardenas were anti imperialists, Coronel Hugo Chavez, Comandante Fidel Castro were anti imperialists. All capitalists states or countries( small or large ) are potentially expansionists or imperialists, and Rosa Luxembourg was able to demonstrate it using economical and political argumentation. We have published many articles showing that it is just pure capitalist nationalism, and Lenin was a theoretician of nationalism

    It was a strange affair.

    The Kymer Rouge were removed from power by the invasion of the Vietnamese and established camps in Thailand where they were supported by Western nations including the USA and UK along with China.

    Ho Chi Min who was an anti imperialist requested military aid from the USA in order to fight the French imperialists, and Stalin who later was in bed with other imperialists did not oppose that request, and then he welcomed the return of French troops along with British troops to Vietnam at the end of the war and during the Vietnam war the Vietcong had IBM equipment which they have priorly received from the USA. Before WW2 the USA was opposing the expansion of Great Britain and they had plan to attack England and Canada

    Hitler’s stand was also anti-imperialist. Like Putin, he proclaimed “Our patience is at an end”, referring to the stifling of Germany by the colonial powers Britain and France and the exclusion of Germany from markets.

    60% of Japan’s military supplies came from the USA before America entered WW2, and while Japan was attacking China. Germany supplied China against its ally Japan, while Americans privately helped Chiang via the Burma airlift.

    Putin’s full speech
    “To emphasise, one of the reasons for the centuries-old Russophobia, the Western elites’ unconcealed animosity toward Russia is precisely the fact that we did not allow them to rob us during the period of colonial conquests and forced the Europeans to trade with us on mutually beneficial terms. This was achieved by creating a strong centralised state in Russia, which grew and got stronger based on the great moral values​​of Orthodox Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism, as well as Russian culture and the Russian word that were open to all.”

    Well, at least he’s clear about his goals.

    Obviously, this is meant to be scary:

    “The United States is the only country in the world that has used nuclear weapons twice, destroying the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. And they created a precedent.

    “Recall that during WWII the United States and Britain reduced Dresden, Hamburg, Cologne and many other German cities to rubble, without the least military necessity. It was done ostentatiously and, to repeat, without any military necessity. They had only one goal, as with the nuclear bombing of Japanese cities: to intimidate our country and the rest of the world.” (also, kinda true).

    So, without necessity, he’s going to nuke us, the populations of the West?

    The Soviet Union made secretive pact with the USA during the war, they declared war in Japan without any provocations from Japan, they were ready to invade Japan, they defeated the best army of Japan in Manchuria.

    There were places in Germany where the allies created more destruction than the two atomic bombs that were dropped in Japan and they were atomic experiments on civilians,

    Japan was already defeated and they preserved both cities, the soviet knew about the Manhattan Project and they had a network of spies looking for the formula,

    Some USA generals wanted to nuke the Soviet Union and the government refused it

    With the Postdam treaty the Soviet Union obtained more territories than the allies, and around the world the USA had more spheres of influences than the Soviet Union and then both were competing for world domination

    “We are, literally, on the eve of destruction. Now is the time for the kind of political maturity leaders rarely demonstrate. The onus is on Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin to make sure that even while events on the ground in Europe devolve into chaos and violence, the leaders of the world’s two largest nuclear arsenals do not allow emotion to get the better of reason. The consequences of failure in this regard are, for humanity, terminal.” – Scott Ritter

    SCOTT RITTER: The Onus Is on Biden & Putin

    Two fundamental misunderstandings that could lead to a nuclear war

    ” a) Russia could be preparing to use nuclear weapons against Ukraine that would generate a non-nuclear response on the part of the U.S., and b) Russia believes that the U.S. would not respond with nuclear weapons if Russia were to use its own nuclear arsenal against NATO, the world now faces the real prospect of imminent nuclear conflict between the U.S. and Russia.

    From the U.S. perspective, Russia’s unwillingness to use nuclear weapons against Ukraine underscores the overall impotence of Russia and its leadership, and therefore opens the door for decisive NATO intervention, including boots on the ground, in case of any Russian non-nuclear threat against Kiev itself.

    From the Russian perspective, the documented U.S. reluctance to employ nuclear weapons in the case of a decisive Russian military victory over Ukraine opens the door for Russia ’s use of a tactical nuclear weapon against NATO in the case of a major NATO military intervention in Ukraine. “

    Hey True Scotsman, if you are so keen on sending workers to the front line to die in the cause of Putin’s “Anti Imperialism”, why don’t you join the fun. Or is it that you’re full of shit!

    “Hey True Scotsman, if you are so keen on sending workers to the front line to die”

    Hey Bird Brain! I wish I had that kind of power. But I don’t.

    “in the cause of Putin’s “Anti Imperialism””

    The war is against NATO. Yes or no, is NATO an imperialist alliance?

    “why don’t you join the fun.”

    Like I said earlier, the Russians got this, they don’t need me, a non-Russian speaker, getting in the way. But hand me a gun, put some Nazis in front of me, I’ll pull the trigger.

    “Or is it that you’re full of shit!”

    No, that’s the prerogative of your little cult. Talking shit about actual socialists. It’s the only thing you do. LOL

    Applying similar if not identical reasoning for the self-determination of Russian-speaking Ukrainians under Article 1 of the UN Charter, does Putin apply the same principle to the Uyghur population of the Xinjiang region or what is called East Turkestan?

    A reminder of past articles on Chinese colonialism
