The main problem is Western empire

Reader comment on item: Middle East Geopolitics

Submitted by DEBANJAN BANERJEE (India), Jan 15, 2022 at 21:52

Dear Dr Pipes

The main problem here is that the Western empire that was created after the end of the First World War in the West Asia and North Africa region, is the main problem for the current demographic decline and economic bankruptcy as well as rising immigration into West from troubling places like West Asia and Africa.

The only solution is to give up the Western empire and go back to within Western borders and reform the institutions like World Bank and IMF so as to reduce immigration into the West.

What do you think ?

Daniel Pipes replies:

I am under the impression that Western empires peaked around World War I and then declined.

But I get your point that Western powers should tend to their own business. I don't see how that is possible, however. For example, the war in Afghanistan was prompted by an attack on the United States hosted by the Afghan government. Also, migrants are nearly all focused on the West, whether or not there is a political connection.
