On public request – snapshot on hegemony backed regimes fate.

The question posed to me was to briefly state the outcome on hegemony created, supported and promoted regimes worldwide thus far.

Answer.  Unfortunately for the regimes and sponsors the marriage resulted in dissolution and regimes suffered imprisonment not barring fatal consequences upon public disillusionment.

Few examples clarify the fact.

IranKing Mohammad Reza Pahlavi deposed by Islamic Revolution in 1979.  A year later died in exile in Egypt in 1980. 

IraqEx- President Saddam Hussein.  Hegemony ally hanged in public view via world telecast.

LibyaColonel Muammar Gaddafi.  Assassinated in public.

EgyptFormer President Hosni Mubarak. Ousted by Egypt revolution currently evading legal repercussions with impending final judgment upon departure from earth.

Tunisia – Western and Saudi Arabia favored former head of the government Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali removed from power through popular uprising.

YemenFormer President Ali Abdhullah Saleh expelled by the people following four decades of oppression.

Africa – deserves exclusive mention considering high statistics across the continent. Accordingly scheduled for later discussion.

South East Asia:

IndonesiaEx-President Suharto dictatorial governance brought to an end with the Premier’s resignation. The government gained notoriety for corruption and iron fist rule.

PhilippinesFormer ruler Ferdinand Marcos forced to flee the nation with people revolt against corruption, collusion in foreign subjugation and rising poverty.

ThailandEx-Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva term (2008-2011) was rocked by violence, corruption and misuse of authority leading to government dismissal.

Pakistan General Zia Ul Haq executed western ally Former President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.  General Muhammad Zia Ul Haq experienced the same and was assassinated in 1988. 

Later, western approved former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in 2007.

Western endorsed General Pervez Musharraf – the ex- President of Pakistan imposed emergency rule, imprisoned supreme court justices and declined election. 

The General resigned from office to avert impeachment proceedings and remained in exile in London.  General Musharraf retuned to Pakistan with the hope to seize power amid strong opposition and various charges on abuse of authority and complicity including investigations in ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s assassination.

Latin America:

Panama United States intelligence agency CIA asset Panamanian General turned President Manuel Noriega was ousted by United States former President George H.W.Bush administration and sentenced to 25 years in the U.S. federal prison. The 77 year old former Panamanian leader recently returned home to face legal proceedings on money laundering and murder.

Chile – The military General turned head of the state Augusto Pinochet dictatorship and repressive rule remembered until now. 

The Chilean leader dodged extraditions to face trial on human rights violations with assistance from certain influential figures in western political sphere. 

However, the authoritarian leader having unleashed death on thousands of innocent citizens feared own death knowing well about his destination following final decree.

ArgentinaArmy commander and former President Jorge Rafael Videla known as dictator for running death squads died in prison.

Regardless of military, political, economic and social status – the violations, misuse of power, deception and defiance of humanitarian and natural law held accountable by karma – the inescapable destiny.

Thank you.
