Wars of Imperialism

By Peace Forum NetWork | Neocolonialism  or neo-imperialism is the geopolitical practice of using capitalism, business globalization, and cultural imperialism to influence a country, in lieu of either direct military control (imperialism) or indirect political control (hegemony). American imperialism is the economic, military, and cultural influence of the United States on other countries. Such influence often goes hand in hand with expansion into foreign territories. Expansion on a grand scale is the primary objective of an empire, a notable example being the British Empire. The concept of an American Empire was first popularized during the presidency of James K. Polk who led the United States into the Mexican–American War of 1846, and the eventual annexation of California and other western territories via the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and the Gadsden purchase. It has taken new dimensions in 21st Century as evident in the Middle East and elsewhere. For more visit: http://Peace-Forum.blogspot.com

غائب ہونے والوں میں سے بعض ایسے ہیں‘ جنہوں نے مقدس ترین ہستیوں کے بارے میں اس طرح کی خرافات بکی اور پھیلائی ہیں کہ برداشت کرنے کا سوال ہی پیدا نہیں ہوتا۔ ایک صاحب کے ارشادات سنائے گئے‘ ادھورے سے۔ شب غور کیا تو مجھے لگا کہ اس زندگی سے موت بہتر تھی۔کہنا تو کجا، ایک امتی اپنے آقاؐ کے بارے میں ایسی بات سنے۔ بے حیائی اور بے شرمی کی کوئی آخری حد بھی ہوتی ہے۔ سوچ سمجھ کر‘ طے کر کے اور منصوبہ بنا کر‘ اگر آپ پوری قوم بلکہ پوری امت‘ اس کی پوری تاریخ کو گالی دیتے ہیں‘ ایذا پہنچانے پر تلے رہتے ہیں، تو انجام کیا ہو گا؟ میرے سامنے کھڑا ہو کر‘ مسلسل اور متواتر‘ اگر کوئی میرے باپ پہ دشنام طرازی کرے تو کب تک میں صبر کروں گا؟ چہ جائیکہ کہ ان کے باب میں زبان درازی ہو‘ سحر سے شام اور شام سے سحر تک‘ جن پر درود پڑھا جاتا ہے۔ زمین کے اِس کنارے سے اُس کنارے تک۔ دھرتی کے پاتال سے عرش بریں کی بلندیوں تک۔ نہیں جناب‘ بالکل نہیں۔ ہم اس کی تاب نہیں لا سکتے۔ یہ بھی تسلیم نہیں کر سکتے کہ یہ کسی فرد واحد کا جنون ہے۔ گروہ بندی اور پشت پناہی کے بغیر‘ اس قدر ڈھٹائی اور اس عزم و ہمت کے ساتھ یہ سلسلہ کیونکر جاری رہ سکتا ہے۔ قانون کہاں ہے؟ حکمران کہاں ہیں؟ کس دن کے لیے قوم آپ کو پالتی ہے۔ کس دن کے لیے محلّات میں بٹھا رکھا ہے؟ حیرت اس پر بھی کہ وزیر اعظم‘ وزیراعلیٰ اور وزیر داخلہ یہ سب کچھ دیکھتے اور سنتے رہے۔ اس پر بھی بہت کہ لیڈر لوگ اِن بیچاروں کا مقدمہ تو لڑتے ہیں‘ امت کے زخموں سے بے نیاز ہیں‘ اپنے ہادیؐ و مولیٰؐ سے بھی بے نیاز؟ - See more at:
