The combination of a US extrajudicial-kill-list, armed drones, worldwide US military presence, and worldwide US information surveillance cannot be permitted to continue, as it is highly hazardous to world peace, human rights, fundamental human dignity, freedom, self-determination, international law, and prosperity among nations. It is easy enough to say this is unacceptable, but what can the world community do about this?
The international community needs to ask itself whether it is willing to permit the entire globe to become no longer capable of countering an unchecked US government exerting ever increasing surveillance and military control over every region of Earth. Now is the time to act because soon it will be too late for there to be any hope of anyone anywhere being able to stand up to the US government. Do we really want to go down that road?
There are still some strategies that might produce results if the international community takes immediate action.
Nations of the world must band together to rescind their invitations for the US to maintain military bases on their soil. In some cases, the US would simply refuse to leave. The host countries would be powerless to do anything about it. However, in other instances, the US would be compelled to give up control over militarily strategic locations. Actions toward evicting US military bases from foreign soil would go against what the US power establishment considers its best interests. This would likely stimulate some US willingness to negotiate with the world community. Hopefully, such negotiation might bear some fruit.
The nations of the world must employ and encourage aggressive data encryption practices, not only for governmental use, but also for widespread use by their citizens, thus countering US worldwide surveillance.
Nations must withdraw support from the US in its so-called war against terrorism.
In implementing these suggestions, nations that consider themselves friends of the US will need to consider that if a friend were drunk (as the US is now intoxicated with its own hubris), then it would be better to take his keys from him than it would be to let him drive an automobile in such a state. Allowing a friend to endanger himself and others is not friendship at all.
Finally, nations of the world need to create a viable alternative to the UN. Giving veto power on the UN security council to nations that were already among the most powerful was a poorly considered means of ensuring meaningful world peace and prosperity. Since the permanent security council members have veto power, there is virtually no hope of reforming the UN to permit something resembling equality among nations. Accordingly, nations must withdraw from the UN and form a new international body that, by putting nations on more equal footing, will increase respect for international law. International law has become meaningless in a world in which a few nations are, in violation of international law, empowered to monitor and bully the world.
