The West, and in particular the USA, has a long history of often violent and usually unsuccessful attempts at regime changes. After the Cold War the US-neo-conservative global strategy was based on US supremacy and exceptionalism and its goal was global control. The act of terrorism of 9/11 was a consequence of the role of the USA in the Middle East; blind support for the State of Israel, the first Gulf war, activating Muslim activists to get the Russians out of Afghanistan and support for dictatorial regimes.
In cooperation with the Federation of European Defence Technology Associations (EDTA) EURODEFENSE has developed remarks on the “Action plan of the European Commission on synergies between civil, defence and space industries” as published on 22 February 2021 (EU reference COM(2021) 70).
