Washington, Dec 7 (Prensa Latina) The on-line summit US President Joe Biden will shortly lead will undermine democracy around the world with his interventionist foreign policy, Ron Paul, a former Republican congressman from Texas said.

In a comment published by antiwar.com website under the suggestive headline “Biden’s ‘Democracy Summit’ is a joke”, the politician gave his thoughts on the virtual event the White House is preparing for the 9th and 10th of December.

He noted that the presumed goal of bringing together “leaders from government, civil society and the private sector to set an affirmative agenda for democratic renewal and to address the greatest threats facing democracies today through collective action” is a bit of a joke.

It is not about promoting democracy but about undermining it, he stressed.

The countries whose elected leaders follow the United States commands, ignoring the wishes of those who elected them, will be favored with an invitation to the “virtual” event, he said.

Nations that apply a domestic and foreign policy independent of the demands of the State Department and the CIA of the United States are not invited to Washington’s playground, the also candidate of the Libertarian Party for the presidency in 1988 expressed.

He further said the event features “through pettiness a childish approach”. It is like the tale of the emperor without clothes. None of the crawling foreign leaders graced with an invitation to the banquet dares to point out that Washington is devoted to undermining democracy abroad, not promoting it, Paul denounced.

The only thing our country is exporting these days are plans to overthrow elected governments, he warned. For Washington, democracy means “you choose who we tell you to”.

He added that Washington’s intervention abroad is always the ground goal.

Democracy Summit? He asked and replied, ” It’s more like a propaganda summit. What a joke!”, he concluded.
