Credit must be given to President Trump for unmasking the real face of the US interventionist foreign policy, which the previous incumbents used to unsuccessfully camouflage under the garb of protecting American interests, promoting world peace, democracy, human rights, fighting terror etc. While addressing the media during his maiden visit to Iraq on December 26, 2018, Trump said “the United States cannot continue to be the policeman of the world. We are in countries that most people (Americans) have never heard about. And, frankly, it is ridiculous”. The rest of the world can’t agree more.
Credit should also be given to the people of Afghanistan for their remarkable resilience in resisting the foreign intervention despite the US scaring them by using (testing) all kinds of arsenal, including dropping the “mother of all bombs” having yield more than a tactical nuclear weapon on April 13, 2017 in Nangarhar Province. The resistance, unfortunately, is being spearheaded by the Taliban, whom people equally dislike.
