The US has given up on the idea of free trade, and it is trying to retain its markets using military force, the leader of the Essence of Time movement, political scientist Sergey Kurginyan, said on April 16 in an interview to the Expert journal.
“Since the 19th century, free trade has been good for the strongest country in the world, which does not want other countries to protect themselves from its economic expansion. Habitually, the US has considered itself to be the strongest country, and it forced free trade on everyone else,” Kurginyan said.
According to the political scientist, the idea of free trade has been taken up by China, which wants to seize other countries’ markets itself.
“Now Trump is shouting, ‘No, we do not need freedom of trade!’ The US is losing markets. And it is trying to retain them not economically, but using military force,” Kurginyan explained.
The Essence of Time leader stressed that today the US is waging a ruthless war against China for the control over Africa. “A furious war is taking place there, which passes somewhat unnoticed by us. The situation in Latin America is very complicated. They are losing Asia. Turkey has moved away from them. It was quite a task to alienate Turkey!” Kurginyan said.
On the night of April 13 to 14, the US, the UK, and France carried out a massive missile strike on Syrian territory. 103 missiles struck against the government’s military facilities, but only 32 reached their targets. The rest were intercepted by the Syrian Air Defense Forces.
Neither serious damage nor victims resulted from the strike.
The President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, condemned the coalition’s attack. He stressed that the US and its allies violated international law, and that they actually aided the terrorists fighting the Syrian territory.
