President Xi of China will chair the virtual BRICS summit later this week, three of its most influential members - China, India and South Africa abstained from voting on a UN resolution condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
In response to this the US government put out a statement warning China and other BRICS nations not to be on the wrong side of history over the Ukraine-Russia war.
The United States of America has been on the wrong side of history almost every year since it's foundation in 1776. There is hardly a conflict in the world in which the US have become embroiled, which hasn't made a bad situation worse. In truth the US political, military, and industrial complex have so much blood on their hands it should be renamed Murder Incorporated.
Since WW2 when they did play a positive role they have intervened in Cuba, Vietnam, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Haiti, Iran, Indonesia, Philippines, Lebanon, Palestine, Ukraine and more; they truly are a gang of piratical gangsters.
By the way given the above mentioned history it's not whataboutery to question the motives of the US government in the Ukraine, it's due diligence and common sense.
