Why Did Trump Ban Travel From Seven Muslim-Majority Countries?
His Businesses? Or U.S. Imperialism’s?
February 1, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
Almost no one from the seven predominantly Muslim countries Trump banned from entering the U.S. has carried out terror on U.S. soil. Yet several countries from which 9/11 attackers came were not banned.
Some explain this by pointing to Trump’s personal business ties in those countries not banned.
No. The target list was dictated by U.S. imperialist interests—the interests (and necessity) this system has to plunder countries around the world, and to reconfigure and dominate the Middle East region.
This is wrong. American lives are NOT more important than other people’s lives.
