The Bush and Obama wars on sovereign states caused the refugee disaster in Europe, wrote Prof. Wang Jinglie of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) in the Oct. 23 China Daily. After reviewing the refugee crisis both in Southwest Asian coutries and in Europe, Wang hit the western responsibility: “But it is indisputable that the frequent military interventions led by the West, including the United States and Europe, have fueled the chaos that has forced people from their homes.”
“On the one hand, it instigated the `Arab Spring’ to promote `democracy’ in the Arab World,” wrote Wang. “On the other, U.S.-led military actions have more than once overturned `disobedient administrations,’ such as the ones ruled by Saddam Hussein in Iraq and Muammar Gadhafi in Libya.
“These misdeeds eventually resulted in the latest refugee crisis, which to many Europeans was an unexpected outcome.”
In Syria, Wang wrote, the U.S. armed and funded the opposition forces to overthrow the legitimate government. “Unfortunately, crippling the Syrian government has not only led to endless turmoil and civil war in the country, but it also exposed the local residents to an unchained bloodthirsty monster — the Islamic State group.”
Reflecting the LaRouche policy, Wang concluded: “The refugee crisis will keep haunting all involved parties unless wars and poverty are eliminated in the war-stricken countries, which urgently need peace and stability to restore their economies and convince their nationals that seeking asylum elsewhere is no longer necessary. That being said, major Western powers have to stop intervening to their own liking in Middle East affairs before the regional situation spins out of control.”
