Editorial: John Kerry suggest military can intervene in case of popular demand

US Secretary of State John Kerry while speaking to Pakistani media suggested that military intervention might be acceptable when there is popular demand for it. His statement endorses the military coup in Egypt which overthrew a democratically elected government of Egypt Muhammad Morsi. This statement is also in line with the past US position of working and supporting with military generals in Pakistan and other countries. But this position is against the US national values of democracy, capitalism, freedom of speech and people’s right to choose.

Pakistan, Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries rely on weapons supply for their armed forces. This heavy reliance on American arms create a nexus between military generals and American administration. It is through this nexus that most of the strategic alliances and partnerships are maintained.

In other words this is a new form of colonialism exercised by USA, Britain and other Western countries.
