CSUSB professor writes on implications of U.S. withdrawing from Afghanistan
Tehran Times
Sept. 26, 2021

David Yaghoubian, Cal State San Bernardino professor of history, wrote an opinion column on the U.S. withdrawing from Afghanistan after 20 years of conflict, and the administration of U.S. President Joe Biden’s “pivot to Asia.”

He wrote, in part, “And yet, despite President Biden’s rhetoric at the United Nations, the U.S. empire, guided by the bi-partisan Washington consensus for eternal conflict, belligerence, and public debt-based ‘defense’ sector and personal profit will continue on autopilot to pivot to Asia, and thus to subsequent bankruptcy and dissolution. What President Biden means when he states that the U.S. does not seek a new Cold War and favors diplomacy going forward is that the global community must recognize that the United States under his leadership is ‘back’ and fall in line with the so-called ‘rules-based order’ (not to be confused with international law or U.N. Security Council resolutions) that only serves American hegemonic interests and those of its scofflaw minions such as apartheid Israel.”
