Moving Closer To War - Paul Craig Roberts

Honored Readers,

There are not too many to be contrary to the Mass Media, 
carry the flag, and with all their available strength confront 
the “system” wherever and how they may be able to do so. 
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, born in 1939, is one of those human 

Awareness and knowledge are truly needed, 
and this publication conforms to that need.
With heart-felt Greetings and with Love

Moving Closer To War

written by Paul Craig Roberts 
April 26, 2014

The Obama regime, wallowing in hubris and arrogance, 
has recklessly escalated the Ukrainian crisis into a crisis 
with Russia. Whether intentionally or stupidly, Washington’s 
propagandistic lies are driving the crisis to war. 

Unwilling to listen to any more of Washington’s senseless 
threats, Moscow no longer accepts telephone calls from 
Obama and US top officials.

The crisis in Ukraine originated with Washington’s 
overthrow of the elected democratic government and 
its replacement with Washington’s hand-chosen stooges. 

The stooges proceeded to act in word and deed against the 
populations in the former Russian territories that Soviet 
Communist Party leaders had attached to Ukraine.
The consequence of this foolish policy is agitation on the part 
of the Russian speaking populations to return to Russia. 
Crimea has already rejoined Russia, and eastern Ukraine 
and other parts of southern Ukraine are likely to follow.

Instead of realizing its mistake, the Obama regime has 
encouraged the stooges Washington installed in Kiev to 
use violence against those in the Russian-speaking areas 
who are agitating for referendums so that they can vote 
their return to Russia. The Obama regime has encouraged 
violence despite President Putin’s clear statement that the 
Russian military will not occupy Ukraine unless violence is 
used against the protesters.

We can safely conclude that Washington either does 
not listen when spoken to or Washington desires violence.
As Washington and NATO are not positioned at this time to 
move significant military forces into Ukraine with which to 
confront the Russian military, why is the Obama regime 
trying to provoke action by the Russian military? A possible 
answer is that Washington’s plan to evict Russia from its 
Black Sea naval base having gone awry, Washington’s fallback 
plan is to sacrifice Ukraine to a Russian invasion so that 
Washington can demonize Russia and force a large increase 
in NATO military spending and deployments.

In other words, the fallback prize is a new cold war and trillions 
of dollars more in profits for Washington’s military/security complex.
The handful of troops and aircraft that Washington has sent 
to “reassure” the incompetent regimes in those perennial trouble 
spots for the West–Poland and the Baltics–and the several missile 
ships sent to the Black Sea amount to nothing but symbolic 

Economic sanctions applied to individual Russian officials 
signal nothing but Washington’s impotence. Real sanctions 
would harm Washington’s NATO puppet states far more 
than the sanctions would hurt Russia.

It is clear that Washington has no intention of working 
anything out with the Russian government. 
Washington’s demands make this conclusion unavoidable. 
Washington is demanding that the Russian government pull 
the rug out from under the protesting populations in eastern 
and southern Ukraine and force the Russian populations in Ukraine
to submit to Washington’s stooges in Kiev. Washington also 
demands that Russia renege on the reunification with Crimea
and hand Crimea over to Washington so that the original plan 
of evicting Russia from its Black Seanaval base can go forward.

In other words, Washington’s demand is that Russia put 
Humpty Dumpty back together again and hand him over to 
This demand is so unrealistic that it surpasses the meaning 
of arrogance. The White House Fool is telling Putin: 
“I screwed up my takeover of your backyard. I want you 
to fix the situation for me and to ensure the success of 
the strategic threat I intended to bring to your backyard.”

The presstitute Western media and Washington’s European 
puppet states are supporting this unrealistic demand. 
Consequently, Russian leaders have lost 
all confidence in the word and intentions 
of the West, and this is how wars start.
European politicians are putting their countries at great peril 
and for what gain? Are Europe’s politicians blackmailed, 
threatened, paid off with bags of money, or are they so 
accustomed to following Washington’s lead that they are 
unable to do anything else? How do Germany, UK, and France 
benefit from being forced into a confrontation with Russia by 

Washington’s arrogance is unprecedented and is capable 
of driving the world to destruction. Where is Europe’s sense 
of self-preservation? Why hasn’t Europe issued arrest warrants 
for every member of the Obama regime? Without the cover 
provided by Europe and the presstitute media, Washington 
would not be able to drive the world to war.
