Dear Editor,

What would the US look like today if it were to be sanctioned for the atrocities and human rights abuses it has carried out in other countries, namely Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan, Syria, and Libya, and the many more countries in which its so-called special forces have been carrying out 'missions' that result in the death of many?

I think it is time for the world to bring the US into compliance with international laws, just like everyone else. And to start doing so the world has to abandon the over-reliance on the US. This will diminish the possibility of what I consider to be 'economic terrorism' on small neighbours and the countries it does not agree with.

The US has become like a bully over others because it believes that it has a big military and is the arbiter of what defines democracy.

All this must stop, and the only way to do this is to remove the use of its currency for reserves.
