United States: Boon Or Bust After Trump – OpEd


As a student of geopolitics in South Asia and MENA, I have repeatedly held the United States responsible for the turmoil in the region. I had even gone to the extent of saying that the United States is the biggest warmonger. The superpower loves to initiate a conflict that goes to the extent of anarchy and civil war.


This also invites other contenders to take part in proxy wars. While the sole purpose of United States is to sell its arms, it wants to keep others countries busy in fighting wars, rather than focusing on the welfare of their people. This also gives it a chance to keep the countries dependent on the World Bank and the IMF.

After having gone through what has been happening in the United States, with Donald Trump taking the oath as new President, I am obliged to say that until recently the United States has been fanning hatred in the world, but now it is facing the same.

The demonstrations on the inaugural day and subsequent events clearly shows the ‘Emergence of anarchy in the United States’. There are growing fears within the United States that these demonstrations may turn violent.

Over the years the United States has been breading militants and using them in various countries to promote its agenda of keeping the countries in constant state of war. The worst examples are Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Blood-thirsty mercenaries from around the world have landed in these countries. It may also be said that these militants have been moved from one country to another only to promote sale of arms.

One often wonders how the rebel groups get money. Even a cursory look at Afghanistan and MENA shows that poppy and petrodollars are used for purchasing arms. Various oil fields have been taken over by rebels, who are selling oil to the developed nations. The drug center has shifted from golden triangle to Afghanistan.


The spy agencies of the United States have been alleging that Russia rigged their election. This on one the hand proves the failure of these agencies, and on the other suggests the breakout of anarchy in the country that has been creating turmoil around the world.

Over the years, the United States has been ringing the alarm of nuclear assets going into the control of militants in various countries. One may ask the same question, will the nuclear assets of United States be in safe hands, if the present demonstrations turn violent?
