Who is the global murderer, Islam or West?

Part II

In the previous section of the article, we discussed the reality that the Western proponents of democracy claim that the world will embrace peace through their democratic claim and found it baseless. Also, in the first part of this article, we delved into the analysis of the crime and results of World War I, the same crisis that excessive Western imperialism brought about. Now, we turn our attention towards World War II and other inhumane atrocities, and we will address them accordingly. 2. World War II: It is another war that humanity will not forget. This war, initiated among Western powers, profoundly impacted the geopolitical structure of the world. It was a widespread conflict spanning from September 1939 to August 1945. The war involved numerous countries to the extent that two factions emerged, known as the Allies and the Axis powers. It is the most extensive war in which over 100 million people fought. Throughout this war, various countries concentrated all their economic and scientific capabilities on the production of military armaments. Additionally, the war resulted in mass killings, including the Holocaust and dropping atomic bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. During World War II, over 60 to 70 million people were killed, making it the bloodiest conflict in human history. The war in Europe ended on May 8, 1945. The outcome of World War II was the victory of the Allies (led by Great Britain, America, and the Soviet Union); however, the consequences of this war led to significant changes, including the formation of the United Nations and the emergence of America and the Soviet Socialist Republics as new superpowers that played a significant role in global decision-making. Many war-torn countries, especially in Europe, pursued bilateral improvement and reconstruction. This second major war in human history was initiated and concluded by Western powers, and Muslims were not involved in these matters at all. After the First and Second World Wars, America emerged as a new superpower, using various innovative tactics. America used the first atomic bomb in this war, which claimed millions of lives, and its effects are still palpable in Japan, where deformed and weak children are born. The result of this war was the introduction of a new political hegemony called the United States of America, which carried the ideology of capitalism in competition with the socialist ideology led by the former Soviet Union. However, unlike previous eras, these powers did not directly confront each other and planned wars in a proxy and erosive manner, where they indirectly led it. This war is called the Cold War. Still, as a result of these wars, millions of people were killed, and once again, Western governments were the main actors in these tragedies, and Muslims were not involved in these matters unless they were defending themselves. The initiators of these wars were Western governments, as exemplified by several famous wars during this period. 1. The Vietnam War: This war is known as the Hellish War, considered one of the deadliest wars after World War II. The country had been under French colonial rule for nearly six decades, and in 1954, at the Geneva Conference, France declared independence for three countries, one of which was Vietnam. However, as always, there remained unrest among the people of Vietnam, leading to the temporary division into North and South Vietnam, with the North being supported by the Communists and the South by the Americans. At that time, the apparent goal was to determine the fate of the government in this country after a nationwide referendum, but in practice, the story took a different turn. Due to fear of the entire region being in the hands of the Soviet Union, America opposed this referendum, which led to the encouragement of Ngo Dinh Diem, the leader of South Vietnam, to refrain from participating in the negotiations related to the vote. This action prompted the official declaration of the independent Republic of South Vietnam under Diem’s leadership in 1955, creating two political blocs, namely North Vietnam and South Vietnam. Political disputes between these two governments, supported by the Soviet Union and America, sparked skirmishes, leading to the first serious battle between North and South Vietnam in 1962. Although North Vietnam was supported by the Soviet Union and China, America’s tactics in this war were terrifying for many. In a battle between American forces and North Vietnam, 2,000 bombs, including 200 B52 bombs, were dropped by American forces, which is considered the most extensive bombing campaign in world history since World War II. According to later reports, American bombers dropped nearly 7 million tons of bombs in Vietnam between 1964 and 1965 alone, with over 100,000 aerial flights, equivalent to the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, during World War II. Finally, the war came to an end in 1974 with the fall of America and its withdrawal from the scene. The result of this war was nearly four million casualties, with 58,000 of them being American; in this war, America also took 300,000 disabled and injured as a reminder. It must be emphasized again that the initiation and conclusion of this war were all about Western governments seeking power, and Muslims had no involvement whatsoever.
