The greatest danger the world is now faced with is high-handedness and arbitrariness of the United States and its vassal forces that are shaking international peace and stability at the basis.
The US unilateral and unfair cold war mentality and its bloc-forming external policy make the structure of international relations be transformed into the one of a new cold war, and they strain politico-military situations with each passing day and continue to spawn new knotty problems in different parts of the world.
In retrospect, the outbreak of the two rounds of the World Wars which brought horrendous calamities and pains of loss originates from the greed of imperialism, and the wars, big and small, on earth in the last century are related, without exception, to the moves of the imperialists to interfere in the internal affairs of others.
In particular, the air raid conducted by NATO against Yugoslavia at the end of last century served as an occasion of bringing to light the extent of the US and Western hypocrisy in their much-touted global peace and stability, territorial integrity and safeguarding of sovereignty as well as of exposing in all its nakedness who is the real destroyer of international peace and stability.
The Iraqi war, the Afghan War and other “colour revolutions” which brought the tragedy of 21th century clearly substantiate the fact that the US and the West would seek their policies of hegemony by fair means or foul.
The present international order is that it has become an immutable law that seeds of discord are sown in every region and country where the US intervenes, and that the relations between the states deteriorate.
The root cause of the Ukrainian crisis also lies in the high-handedness and arbitrariness of the US which has held on solely to the unilateral sanction and pressure while pursuing only global hegemony and military supremacy in disregard of the legitimate demand of Russia for its security.
It is not without reason that the international media and experts comment that the contributing factor to the Ukrainian crisis is the imbalance of power in Europe due to the unilateral expansion of NATO and its threat as well as the grave threat to the national security of Russia.
The US embellishes its own interference in internal affairs of others as “righteous” for peace and stability of the world, but it denounces for no good reason self-defensive measures taken by other countries to ensure their own national security as “injustice” and “provocation” – this is just the arrogance of the US style and its double standard.
Gone are the days when the US used to reign supreme.
The US, seeing through the trend of the present times, should no longer resort to high-handedness and arbitrariness that disturb international peace and stability.
