What exactly does the US Secretary of State do? Since Pompeo became Secretary of State, this issue has puzzled the world. Pompeo’s actions have fully demonstrated that he has no intention of resolving problems for the United States but only wants to add chaos to the world. At present, the number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus pneumonia in the United States is close to 2 million, and the protests caused by the death of African-American man George Floyd have swept the United States for two weeks. People did not see Pompeo come up with any constructive measures to deal with such a severe situation, only to see that he was busy issuing statements and tweets, rumors without a bottom line, and slander of human nature. He accused China of “using False propaganda for the death of Floyd “, Pompeo is both arrogant and absurd. Repeatedly ignoring his responsibilities to speak the truth and blaming others, his statements are so disgusting.
The systemic racial discrimination in American society exposed by Floyd’s death was not propagated by anyone but is a long-standing and well-known reality in the world, which is also widely reflected in American society. Four former U.S. presidents recently issued a statement against entrenched racism in the United States and expressed dissatisfaction with the authorities’ performance in handling the crisis. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Bachelet issued a statement in various media urging the US authorities to pay attention to the “deep dissatisfaction” exposed by the outbreak of protests in hundreds of cities and to take practical measures to solve the problems of police law enforcement violence and systemic racial discrimination.
It was Pompeo himself who really utilized Floyd’s death for false propaganda and tried to divert people’s attention. It is obvious that Pompeo has to “lost his voice” regarding what happened under his eyes, and his indifferent attitude has caused much criticism in the United States. “The American Political News Network” recently asked–“Where is Pompeo?” In a recently published article entitled “His silence is deafening” statements regarding his character were repeated again and again, like —“He is damaging the image of the United States in the world.” Many US diplomats expressed their dissatisfaction with Pompeo.
Pompeo used lies and deceit as a “progressive glory”. In his narrow inner world, slandering China seemed to be a “life-saving straw.” He arbitrarily spreads “political viruses” and unfoundedly concocted vicious arguments such as “the coronavirus from Wuhan Laboratory” and “viruses are artificially synthesized.” While there is an urgent need for solidarity and cooperation in the world, he is keen to play the role of disruptor of international cooperation and a global anti-epidemic disrupter. For this reason, Pompeo was first known by the US media as “one of the worst Secretary of State in American history” and was also called “the Stain of the diplomatic history of international proportions “by the French media. Such evaluations are rare in the diplomatic history.
Lies will eventually be revealed. According to a recent report from the US Political News website, Australian researchers analyzed 2.6 million tweets related to the coronavirus on Twitter in late March and 25.5 million reposts of these tweets within 10 days. The special account forwarded information regarding the coronavirus nearly 7,000 times in a coordinated manner and spread the conspiracy theory that “the coronavirus is a biochemical weapon made in China”. The study also found that many users who forwarded the rumor were remotely controlled “robot” accounts, and many user groups were related to supporters of American far-right forces. This latest disclosure reminds people that it was at the end of March that Pompeo tried to write “Wuhan virus” in the G7 Foreign Ministers’ Joint Statement. Is it a casual coincidence or a well-designed conspiracy?
One thing is for sure, no matter how madly Pompeo blames the outside world, he and his department will not help solve the US’s own problems. One question that is of great interest to the world is, can Pompeo also quit the habit of lying and cheating? He is advised that as the chief diplomat of the United States, respect for facts and truth is a minimum professional obligation and moral bottom line. Pompeo should not spread rumors and slander, nor underestimate the sober cognition and fairness and justice of the international community. It turns out that any confrontation with true justice will eventually fail.
