Enemy Hunt, the Perennial Quest of the West
Hameed Abdul Karim
The western powers have always needed enemies to force their agenda down the throats of different nations at various times in history. With the end of colonialism, however, the U.S.
spurred by its imperial mindset, has
taken over the role of ‘ civilising’ the former colonies with the full backing
of France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK which now are, for all
intents and purposes, US satellite states.
