The United States is the biggest creator of crises in the world because its policies promote wars, conflicts and arms exports, Sudanese experts have said, citing the Middle East as a region where U.S. policies have created a hotbed of unrest.

“During the 2011-15 period, the U.S. has been in the first place of arms exporting countries, (contributing to) one third of the world’s arms sales,” Khalid Dirar, a political analyst and researcher at al-Rasid Center for Strategic Studies in Khartoum, told Xinhua in a recent interview.

“It is apparent that the Middle East region has been the consumer of the American weapons, with 43 percent of the U.S. arms exports, followed by middle Asia and then Europe,” he said.

To Dirar, Washington has adopted “a policy of creating crises” because no country will buy its arms if the world is peaceful and secure.

“This is why the American policy tended to create troubles, sponsor conflicts, find sectoral and ideological issues and create imaginary enemies among countries,” he said.

The scholar cited the ongoing armed conflict in Yemen as the most obvious example of U.S. warmongering. “What is happening in Yemen was done by American motivation,” he said, adding that U.S. foreign policy is based on “the theory of heating up sensitive areas in the world” so that the United States can remain a key global player by managing crisis and intervening in the affairs of other countries at the same time.

In addition to the situation in the Middle East and Ukraine, Dirar also viewed the U.S. move in the South China Sea as an attempt to control a strategic area by pressuring China through unjustified intervention in the South China Sea under the pretext of protecting global navigation.

Mohamed Hassan Saeed, a political analyst and lecturer of political science who teaches at numerous Sudanese universities, said that the term “creative chaos,” which has been adopted by the U.S. administration, is a piece of conclusive evidence of the U.S. desire to create crises and global instability.

“A number of American politicians, intellectuals and academicians have contributed to the formulation of the term to cover up the concept of chaos, which indicates instability, conflict and tension. They added the word (creative), which indicates positiveness for purposes of deception and camouflage,” Saeed told Xinhua.

He said the United States today is suffering from international isolation as many nations have been victimized by Washington’s hostile policies.

“Today America represents the biggest threat to world peace and security by creating wars, fanning armed conflicts and using excessive military force,” he said, adding that the U.S. economy is also suffering from the consequences of the wars fought or funded by Washington itself.

He went on to say that it comes as no surprise that America is now increasingly finding itself to be involved in stalemate situations after decades of hegemony, unilateral action and monopolizing global rules and norms.

To Saeed, the United States is responsible for the emergence of global terrorism, since its polices produced “grouchy and angry groups” that are ready to die in revenge for Washington’s destructive acts that have affected many countries.

In his opinion, the so-called “American values” which Washington is trying to impose on the world — such as freedom, democracy and human rights — are just covers to protect U.S. interests in the world.

In fact, Saeed said the United States is “the biggest violator” of the values it espouses as it sponsors oppressive systems and non-democratic governments.

“Human rights are violated day and night in different areas of the world, while the U.S. practices at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo stand as witnesses to the falsity of the American allegation,” he said, referring to the prisons in Iraq and Cuba that are notorious for tortures and abuses.
