Trump Regime State Terror in its Final Days

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

The world’s leading aggressor/state sponsor of terrorism USA repeatedly accuses nonbelligerent nations threatening no one of its own high crimes.

The Trump regime continues trampling on human rights at home and abroad during its waning days in power.

US war by other means rages endlessly against China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela and other peace-promoting nations.

On Monday, Pompeo falsely designated the world’s leading exporter of healthcare, education, and goodwill Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism — what applies to the US, NATO, Israel, and their imperial partners in high crimes.

Cuba prioritizes world peace, stability, cooperative relations with all nations and respect for rule of law principles.

It considers healthcare and education fundamental human rights for all its people – constitutionally guaranteed. 

In America, they’re commodities, available based on the ability to pay.

The world’s richest country ignores vital needs of its majority population, especially its most disadvantaged, serving its privileged class exclusively.

Cuba has 21 medical schools, the Havana-based Latin American School of Medicine (LASM) the world’s largest with an enrollment of around 20,000 students from scores of countries worldwide.

According to the World Scholarship Program, “Cuba is one of the best locations in the world to study (medicine) as an international student.”

With some of the hemisphere’s best medical schools, education is tuition-free in return for committing to provide Cuban-style medical services at home or in other countries to low-income, under-served communities in need. 

A holistic approach focuses on individual needs, prevention, and lifestyle changes important for good health and community wellness.

Cuban trained doctors serve low income communities in scores of countries worldwide, including in remote areas. 

So do its educators, trained to focus on teaching and learning – polar opposite of US schools that teach to the test and want private control for profit superseding public education.

Cuba is a model social society. 

Spending a small fraction of the cost of healthcare in America, it provides better services overall, everyone treated equally, no one left out, world-class care available to all its people — what’s unimaginable in the US.

Governing by the high standards over rogue US ones, Cuba’s ruling authorities prioritize world peace, stability, cooperative relations with all nations, and respect for rule of law principles — seeking confrontation with no one.

Is stark contrast, the US, NATO, Israel, and their partners in high crimes are perpetually at war on invented enemies by hot and/or other means.

In his final days as the world community’s most reviled undiplomatic diplomat — a hooligan masquerading as otherwise — Pompeo reinvented reality about Cuba, saying:

The Trump regime “designated Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism for” invented reasons, not legitimate ones because none of the latter exist — not now or earlier since Fidel Castro ended decades of US impose despotism on the country in 1959.

The US “harbor(s) terrorists” at home and worldwide, not Cuba as Pompeo falsely claimed.

A further litany of bald-faced Big Lies falsely accused the island state of:

Using its resources “to oppress its people at home (sic).”

“(M)align interference in Venezuela and the rest of the Western Hemisphere (sic).”

Promoting and supporting “international terrorism and subversion of US justice (sic).”

“(P)rovid(ing) medical care for murderers, bombmakers, and hijackers, while many Cubans go hungry, homeless, and without basic medicine (sic).”

“Engag(ing) in a range of malign behavior across the region.”

All of the above apply to the US and its imperial partners, none to Cuba.

Pompeo’s extremist reinvention of reality humiliates himself and the US.

He’s a laughing stock of what diplomacy is supposed to be all about.

Cuba is back on the US state sponsor of terrorism list after removal by Obama/Biden in 2015.

Will Biden/Harris continue the mess left them by Trump, Pompeo et al, or go another way?

The latter is far more likely than the former.

In response to Pompeo’s litany of bald-faced Big lies about the island state, its Foreign Affairs Minister Bruno Rodriguez denounced his “political opportunism,” adding:

“We condemn the (Trump regime’s) cynical and hypocritical qualification of Cuba as a state sponsor of terrorism.”

Dem Senator Pat Leahy slammed Pompeo’s fabricated accusations, saying:

“This blatantly politicized designation makes a mockery of what had been an objective measure of foreign governments’ active support for terrorism.” 

“Nothing remotely like that exists here.” 

Post-Election 2020, Pompeo more greatly corrupted Trump regime foreign policy than earlier — aiming to “make things as difficult as possible” for Biden/Harris when take over.

Last week, he more greatly wrecked Sino/US relations by calling Washington’s longstanding one-China policy null and void.

On Sunday, he falsely designated Yemeni Houthi freedom fighters a a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) (sic), its leadership “specially designated global terrorists (sic).”

The move is part of nearly two decades of US preemptive war on the country and people — transforming it into living hell, terrorizing and suffocating its long-suffering population, starving them to death.

According to the UN, a Yemeni child dies every 10 minutes from war, untreated illnesses and/or wounds, starvation and overall deprivation.

US regimes from Bush/Cheney to Obama/Biden to Trump bear full responsibility — the Saudis and other complicit partners sharing it.

Houthi leadership responded to Pompeo’s litany of bald-faced lies, calling him and likeminded US bad actors “terrorist(s),” adding:

Its freedom fighters “reserve the right to respond to any (phony US) designation” as they see fit.

In a week, Trump, Pompeo, and other hardliners will be replaced by a likely similar band of state terrorists in Washington – continuing longstanding US war on humanity at home and abroad.
