China calls out US war crimes

Samizdat | April 26, 2022

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin has lashed out at the EU and US for criticizing its domestic and foreign policies. Wang singled out the US, accusing Washington of war crimes in the Middle East, economic coercion, betraying its allies and spreading disinformation.

“The US purports to maintain the centrality of the UN Charter, but it is clear to anyone that the US is doing quite the opposite,” Wang told reporters at a press conference on Monday. Citing the US’ military interventions in the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria, Wang stated that Washington “brushed the UN aside and waged wars on sovereign states in wanton interference.”

“The US claims to respect human rights, but the wars of aggression launched by the US and its allies … killed over 300,000 civilians and made over 26 million people refugees,” he continued. “Yet, no one is held accountable for war crimes and crimes against humanity. The US even announced sanctions on the International Criminal Court who would investigate the war crimes of the US military.”

In addition to sanctioning a number of top International Criminal Court officials in 2020, the US maintains the ‘Hague Invasion Act’, giving its military permission to invade the Netherlands to free any American held at the court.

Wang then accused the US of using its economic might to coerce countries “whether they are big or small, faraway or nearby, friend or foe,” citing five decades of US sanctions on Cuba and four decades of such measures on Iran.

“When it comes to stabbing its allies such as the EU and Japan in the back, the US has never hesitated, as we have seen repeatedly,” he added, likely referring foremost to the US’ recent decision to undermine a nuclear submarine deal between France and Australia to further its ‘AUKUS’ alliance with the UK and Australia. China has repeatedly condemned this alliance as an American effort to build an “Asia-Pacific version of NATO.”

“Facts have proven that the US is the biggest spreader of disinformation, culprit of coercive diplomacy and saboteur of world peace and stability,” Wang declared. “From the US-EU dialogue to the AUKUS trilateral security partnership, the Quad and the Five Eyes Alliance, the US is using democracy, human rights, rules and order as a pretext to cover up its shady activities of creating division [and] stoking confrontation.”

Wang’s accusations, while incendiary, were not made out of the blue. Last week, US and EU officials held their third ‘Dialogue on China’, after which they issued a joint press release accusing Beijing of “repeated information manipulation” regarding the conflict in Ukraine, “recent incidents of economic coercion,” and alleged human rights abuses against the Uighur people in Xinjiang, all of which China denies.

The statement also called on China to peacefully resolve its disputes with Taiwan in accordance with the UN charter, and not to circumvent the US and EU sanctions on Russia. That’s despite the fact that those restrictions were imposed by the West unilaterally and have nothing to do with UN mechanisms put in place for such measures, leading Moscow to brand the move “illegal.”

  1. Wang Wenbin is right. The USA GOVERNMENT has been the major source of international warfare since WWII. He’s not referring to the American people when he says that. He means the “Military Industrial Complex”. Multi thousands of American people(Usually from the Poor sections of American community have also died in these wars, as well as America’s allies.(not to mention the number of “Deposed National Prime Ministers, Presidents and leaders who died tragically in “nasty accidents”, during “Regime Change”

    The USA has carefully avoided the International Criminal Court over recent years(along with it’s “Great Friend” ,Israel), who know that they(Both of them) would be the first countries to be brought before it if they were members.

    “If the Nuremburg rules were applied, every American President since WWII would have been hung”, ….(Noam Chomsky), who would well and truly know more about these things than I would).

  3. Should we talk about China’s war crimes? They managed to horrorify Stalin. That’s telling and puts them in no position to be crying about some else’s war crimes. And besides, even if China was able to pull off being the next super power, do you really think they wouldn’t behave as the Americans have behaved?

    • One can only hope they behave rationally when it happens. How did the Chinese “manage to horrify Stalin”? I know the Japanese horrified(and slaughtered) so many Chinese in the 1930’s(The rape of Nanking)……but I’m unaware of Conflict with Russia and China……..(but I have heard of Ghengis Khan…….)

    • Typical American Anglo elite mindset. If we don’t rule you China will. The difference is what makes you think China wants to rules and control you. They have more citizens than all 5 eyes natuons combined. They have enough.

      • Yes, I think Tokyo was Fire Bombed at the end of the War, and of course 140,000 civilians died in Hiroshima, and 80,000 in Nagasaki.
