Who are the World’s Real Rogue Nations?

Three recent votes in the United Nations has once again set the tone for the world and more specifically, Washington and its relationship to Cuba and the Middle East.  Here is the background.

We are all aware that Washington and its lackey, the Western mainstream media, have spent a great deal of energy portraying both Russia and China as the greatest threat to world peace in this multipolar world and that they should be considered as rogue nations.  Such is not the case as you will see in this posting.

1.) United Nations General Assembly – November 7, 2019 vote to end the United States embargo against Cuba:  For the 28th year in a row, the United Nations took a vote on a resolution that called for and end to the economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the United States against Cuba.  Here's what the United Nations had to say about the vote:

Here is the result of the vote:

For – 187 Member States

Against – United States (29th year in a row), Brazil and Israel

Abstain – Columbia and Ukraine

Non-voting – Modova

The Cuba embargo is rooted in the darkest days of the Cold War; on March 14, 1958, the United States imposed an embargo against the sale of arms to Cuba during the Batista regime. This was followed by additional economic penalties after Fidel Castro seized power in 1959 and Cuba began to trade with the Soviet Union rather than with the United States.  Cuba was added to the State Department's lift of states sponsoring international terrorism in 1982 as shown on this Congressional Research Service report from 2005:

Since the embargo inception through to March 2016, Cuba estimates that the economic damages created have reached the $125.9 billion mark, a very significant penalty for a small economy.

2.) United Nations First Committee on Disarmament and International Security – November 1, 2019 vote on a draft resolution "Establishment of a nuclear-weapon-free zone in the region of the Middle East".  Here is the document:

Here is the key portion of the document (A/C.1/74/L.1):

"Urges all parties directly concerned seriously to consider taking the practical and urgent steps required for the implementation of the proposal to establish a nuclear-weapon-free zone in the region of the Middle East in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the General Assembly, and, as a means of promoting this objective, invites the countries concerned to adhere to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.

Calls upon all countries of the region that have not yet done so, pending the establishment of the zone, to agree to place all their nuclear activities under International Atomic Energy Agency safeguard."

Here is the result of the vote:

For – 172 Member States

Against – United States and Israel

Abstentions – Cameroon and the United Kingdom

3.) United Nations First Committee on Disarmament and International Security – November 1, 2019 vote on a draft resolution "The risk of nuclear proliferation in the Middle East".  Here is the document:

Here is the key portion of the document (A/C.1/74/L.2)

"Stressing the importance of taking confidence-building measures, in particular the establishment of a nuclear-weapon-free zone in the Middle East, in order to enhance peace and security in the region and to consolidate the global non-proliferation regime.

Emphasizing the need for all parties directly concerned to seriously consider taking the practical and urgent steps required for the implementation of the proposal to establish a nuclear-weapon-free zone in the region of the Middle East in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the General Assembly and, as a means of promoting this objective, inviting the countries concerned to adhere to the Treaty and, pending the establishment of the zone, to agree to place all their nuclear activities under Agency safeguards."

Here is the result of the vote:

For – 151 Member States

Against – Canada, Israel, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Palau and the United States

Abstentions – 22 Member States

With these votes in mind, ask yourself the following question – which nations really are the world's rogue states, particularly given the history of Israel's acquisition of its nuclear weapons and the current uncertainty regarding the actual size of its nuclear armoury?
