The Universality of US Law

Current Affairs ---

Okay, people. It is official. Let's face it. Territorial sovereignty does not exist. Territorial sovereignty is an illusion, a myth. The only sovereign state in our world today is the United States, and the rest of the world might as well tear up their Laws and Constitutions and flush them down the toilet. In its recent shake down of FIFA (a boy scout in corruption when compared with HSBC, JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, etc.) last week in Switzerland by officers of the FBI, the United States, by that action, clearly declared to the rest of the world that its Law is universal, transcending all national boundaries and that there is nothing any other nation can do about it. Forget sovereignty. What it also shows is that a lot of nations are subservient to the United States and are constrained to dance to its tune. One has to wonder what hold the U.S. has on these countries. What is particularly telling is that no country appears to have issued any protest against this action of the United States Government since everyone seems focused on corrupt FIFA. Meanwhile, the U.S. continues to act with impunity. Recall also how in 2013 the plane of Bolivian President Evo Morales was forced to land and was searched (on suspicion of carrying Edward Snowden) after France, Spain, and Portugal refused to allow it to refuel and refused it access through their air-space. So much for sovereignty and diplomatic courtesy. So wake up rest of the world. Forget your toothless Laws. Forget the International Criminal Court. The prevailing Law is US Law.
