American Social Darwinism by Senator Lindsey Graham

The removal of native populations during the colonial era, the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the attacks on Iraq and Afghanistan, the crime in Vietnam and today the call to use the atomic bomb against the defenseless people of Gaza should be considered part of an ideological current.

According to the international group Tasnim news agency, Lindsey Graham, the senior American senator, on Sunday, the war of the Zionist regime He compared Gaza with America’s decision to drop atomic bombs on the cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima in Japan and called for the use of nuclear weapons against Gaza.

Graham said in an interview with NBC: “When our nation was threatened with destruction after Pearl Harbor during the war with the Germans and Japanese, we decided to end the war with the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.” That decision was right.”

He further added: Give Israel the bombs they need to end the war. They cannot fail.

Graham’s baseless arguments to justify the Zionist regime

Dal Central to Graham’s argument is that when the United States faced an existential threat in 1945, it authorized the use of chemical weapons and the massacre of at least 200,000 people, and now that Israel is facing an existential threat, it can use nuclear weapons in Gaza. use.

This argument, of course, faces many problems, including the fact that according to what today’s documents show, the United States did not face an existential threat in 1945, because the Japanese Empire was already defeated and on the verge of surrender.

Evan Stimson, Harry Truman’s Secretary of War, for example, said: “Japan had no allies, its navy was almost completely destroyed, its islands were under naval blockade, and its cities were under attack.” They were in dense air. In addition, some historians believe that even the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were not the reason for Japan’s final surrender and that the declaration of war by the Soviet Union on August 8 was a more important factor that led to Japan’s surrender.

Even in a report The US official also has evidence to confirm that Japan was ready to surrender without using nuclear weapons. In the report “Research on American Strategic Bombing” which was written in July 1946 by order of Truman to investigate the effects of atomic attacks on Japan, it is stated that Japan was ready to surrender without an atomic attack: “Based on a detailed investigation of all the facts that the statements of the surviving Japanese officials They also confirm that, the report’s opinion is that Japan would have surrendered before December 31, 1945, and almost certainly before November 1, 1945, even if it had not been attacked with atomic bombs. This happened even if Russia did not enter the war and even if this country did not have a plan or idea to attack. Therefore, America killed hundreds of thousands of women and children not to end the war and To prevent the killing of more people or to defend the territorial existence of the United States, but to show power to the Soviet Union and to test nuclear weapons in a real battlefield.

On the other hand, it can be shown that Lindsey Graham’s statements originate from an old intellectual platform that has been the driving force behind the decisions of the United States authorities during the past centuries. These statements are in fact – as some Western media are trying to pretend – the words of a hard-line or extremist person who did not come out of the framework of the official policies of the United States, but can be shown to originate from a current of thought that inflicts any amount of suffering. It allows others as long as it is in the interests of Washington. It can be argued that this thinking has historical roots.

During the westward expansion of America by the European settlers, the Indian settlements that resisted were razed to the ground and the natives were massacred. The result of the random massacre of the Indians was that three million of them were massacred, and many more were only allowed to survive physically, in the sense that their culture was destroyed and they themselves became objects of Western entertainment.

In 1830, “Andrew Jackson”, the seventh president of the United States, issued an order that became known as the “Indian Removal Act”. According to this law, the Indians were migrated from their lands in the eastern part of America to the barren lands west of the Mississippi River. The purpose of this act was to move the five Indian tribes Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole from their lands in the southeastern United States to “Indian Land” (a region in the eastern part of present-day Oklahoma). The great migration of the Cherokee people in 1838 from Georgia to the west was one of these government migrations that became known as the “Trail of Tears”. In this 2000 km journey, 4000 Indians lost their lives. These Indians were migrated to special lands in the American West, which are known as reserved lands today. With the arrival of Europeans, American Indians faced epidemics, destruction of culture and loss of land. Some Indian tribes were enslaved by whites for two centuries, and others were exterminated in wars and collective cleansings such as the Wounded Knee Massacre.

Another case of racial genocide that occurred during the development of America, the genocide of Americans He was of African descent. It is believed that 15 million Africans were separated from their country and sold as slaves. Long after slavery was outlawed, white men exterminated Africans. In the history and official narratives of the United States, the record of oppression of African Americans is largely absent.

In the mid-19th century, competition among European countries to colonize countries due to sheer greed and trying to gain benefits There was an economy. In Africa, white Europeans simply removed all obstacles to commercial development. People were treated as if they were part of the obstacles in the natural environment. Human victims were not considered real. As if the death of non-Europeans was not considered a moral problem.

Africans were considered as people without culture and their elimination was done without any tolerance. In the Belgian Congo under Leopold II, the population was reduced from 22 million to 10 million in a policy known as “administrative massacre”. In Australia, a similar process was followed, and the killing of natives continued even into the 1920s. Moral propositions that white European immigrants were uniquely chosen dominated the Western narrative.

After Japan’s victory in the Russo-Japanese War in 1905, Japan emerged as a major threat to the United States. It became known and in American popular literature, the Japanese became the focus of the “yellow peril” syndrome, replacing the Chinese. There were fears of an Asian invasion through immigration, and American popular literature suggested that the United States was using its superior technology to exterminate the “Asiatic hordes.” Much of this literature advocated genocide, to the extermination of the last person, blacks and Asians.

Conclusion

Lindsey Graham’s statements show a belief in “social Darwinism”. In the past centuries, the West, especially the United States, has used it as a basis for justifying all kinds of crimes against humanity, including racism, genocide, and monopoly capitalism. The expansion of “Robert Darwin’s” theory from biology to human societies indicates that, according to American statesmen, the world is like a forest in which any anti-human and anti-human methods can be resorted to in order to secure benefits and survival.

States The United States of America and the West have always violated international norms and moral standards in their continuous efforts to gain power and economic achievements. The removal of native populations during the colonial era, the bombing of the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the attacks on Iraq and Afghanistan, the crime in Vietnam, and today the call to use the atomic bomb against the defenseless people of Gaza should be considered part of an ideological current. div class=”markup-container readmore-container”>BBC analysts acknowledge that Israel is sinking into the Gaza swamp!
