The Persian Gulf War (II)

The political consequences of the Persian Gulf War have to do mainly with the construction of a new world order in which the US imposes itself as the major world power and proceeds to assume the false role of peacemaker, even bypassing the Nations United in some decisions of global importance.

This was a strategy that was a consequence of the Gulf War that had been designed to contain both Iran and Iraq, using military presence as a basic strategy to try to induce the two countries to effect behavior change, in the case of Iran, or change government in the case of Iraq.

Although the containment of Iraq has been more internationally accepted, it involves many areas such as the reinforcement of the zones established by the UN, the embargo on arms sales and the export of oil. The US has been the main architect of this policy that aims to avoid a possible rebellion in the future of both countries.

There is no doubt that the Persian Gulf War is not yet over and that there are facts that suggest t`hat the Bush administration lied about its motives for participating in this war. History shows that the American government always lies, especially to the Americans. In this century the US has lied to justify every war, since these wars were always started for economic reasons.

For Hussein it was logical to believe that President Bush would not intervene in the conflict if he invaded, as evidenced by the events of July 23 and 24, 1990. What can be deduced from this is that up to a certain point the US had provided security for Iraq and was not opposed to its action against Iran.

So it can be concluded that the Bush administration wanted Iraq to invade Kuwait as an excuse to win the support of Egypt and Saudi Arabia and to establish a permanent military force in the Middle East. So it has been proven that the real intention of the US was to raise oil prices at a time when that form of energy was one of its most important economic resources. Besides it came from Texas, Bush’s home state.

Unfortunately, this information has never been revealed to the American people, let alone to the world in general, so these facts are very difficult to know from a serious media perspective. In short, the Persian Gulf War represents two sides of the same coin. One side represents Kuwait and its people, as well as the prisoners of other nationalities that Iraq arrested before the war, and on the other side the stamp that money has all over the world.

Addendum: In this analysis of the Persian Gulf War there is probably a clear denunciation of the role of the colonial power that the US continues to play, but that’s what the facts indicate.
