U.S. Foreign Policy "a Twisted Version of the "You-Break-It-You-Buy-It Rule:
If we bomb a country or help destabilize its society, we will then ban its citizens from being able to seek refuge in the United States," writes journalist Zaid Jilani at The Intercept.
President Trump is expected to sign an Executive Order today to restrict visits and immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries: Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, and Iran. Titled "Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Attacks by Foreign Nationals," the draft text reads "In order to protect Americans, we must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward our country and its founding principles." Which is a lot to ask of people being bombed to oblivion. The U.S. Terror program has little to do with humanitarian aid and everything to do with sustaining American hegemony in the Middle East.
"What all seven countries have in common is that the United States government has violently intervened in them," concludes Jilani.
