POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
I honestly do not think "the world" fears for anything like that claim.
The United States and those mindlessly repeating its prepackaged phrases say they fear.
But what the United States genuinely fears is that this whole elaborate charade of mercenaries and misdirected idealists and smuggled weapons is going to fail.
After all, they've put years of effort and a great deal of money into these black operations.
In view of America’s bloody record, how could anyone there fear for a massacre anyway?
They're busy murdering people daily with death-drones, and they've already killed several thousand in several countries.
They're still running a special-forces Murder Incorporated operation in Afghanistan.
They left Iraq in a shambles with a million dead, two million refugees, no up-to-date services operating, and not a hint of a genuine democracy.
They left three million corpses in Vietnam.
They were responsible for the million or so who died in Cambodia after they destabilized the government with the same kind of crap they're doing in Pakistan.
And American politicians show no shame in trying to outdo their tokens of support for Israel, the most blood-soaked per-capita government on earth.
As for much of the world, looking honestly at the situation, what they see is a government trying to defend itself against a proxy army put together by foreigners, and that is what armies anywhere are supposed to do.
No, there are no genuine fears of massacre.
