    Pay attention that the western countries which had slavery only had it in colonies not in metropoly (although Central and Eastern Europe had serfdom until 19th century which was in many aspects close to slavery)



    Slavery and serfdom is not entirely the same thing.

    Serfdom was not as bad overall than for example the chattel slavery that existed in the South of the U.S.A., or in the Caribbean, or in the Spanish-owned silver mines in the Americas.  



    About the Arabs:

    Chattel slavery are the key words here.


    It was something of an Anglo-Saxon and Spanish specialty. Arabs practiced it also, but only to a limited degree; not all Arab-owned slaves were subjected to chattel slavery.

    Yes, many cultures had slavery, but not all of them had chattel slavery.

    The US and its NATzO pals do not practice what they preach. They push free trade as long as NATzO corporations have
    advantages and dominate the "opened" markets. When the situation is reversed, their collective anal sphincter clamps hard.
    For example the US protectionist tariffs against Japanese super computers in the early 1990s. Cray couldn't compete, so
    NEC and others got squeezed. China is presenting an existential competitive threat to the self-anointed high priests of
    free markets. These comments by China are 100% valid.
