Washington Is Beating The War Drums - Paul Craig Roberts


written by JJK
translated by Franz

Honored Reader,

This actual article by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts ties up directly 
with his publication „Are You Ready For Nuclear War?“ 
http://lichtweltverlag.blogspot.co.at/2014/06/are-you-ready-for-nuclear-war-paul_18.html and continues it.
Also this time, as much as we regret it, it is impossible to 
bring “only good news”, because Washington indeed prepares 
for World War. If this one happens has not been decided yet, 
because eventually it also depends on us – on the force we 
manifest and on our opposition to evil. 

I trust that in the end we will prevail. 

However for that it requires the unvarnished truth, so that 
we can decouple ourselves from the matrix and no longer 
allow the dark players to have power over us. The truth frees us, 
and it is still a puzzle of this time, why only a few human Beings 
are interested in it. Yet it is enough, as the few who we are, 
make a good job of it. And foremost I trust in that, because I 
know my and I know the power of all those, who have dedicated 
themselves to life and to the light. 

Those, who think they are invincible, 
will fall, and those, who were supposed 
to be fitted with lead weights, will rise up; 
rise up over darkness and enter into the light. 

And this publication, as well as all publications from 
Lichtweltportal, is another building block for the upcoming 
“Golden Age of Light” on earth.

In Love

Washington Is Beating The War Drums

written by Paul Craig Roberts 
June 17, 2014 

I wish I had only good news to bring to readers, 
or even one item of good news. Alas, goodness has 
ceased to be a feature of US policy and simply cannot be 
found in any words or deeds emanating from Washington or 
the capitals of its European vassal states. The Western 
World has succumbed to evil.

In an article published by Op-Ed News, Eric Zuesse supports 
my reports of indications that Washington is preparing for a 
nuclear first strike against Russia. US war doctrine has been 
changed. US nuclear weapons are no longer restricted to a retaliatory 
force, but have been elevated to the role of preemptive nuclear attack. Washington pulled out of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with 
Russia and is developing and deploying an ABM shield. 
Washington is demonizing Russia and Russia’s President 
with shameless lies and propaganda, thus preparing the 
populations of the US and its client states for war with Russia.

Washington has been convinced by neoconservatives that 
Russian strategic nuclear forces are in run down and unprepared 
condition and are sitting ducks for attack. This false belief is based 
on out-of-date information, a decade old, such as the argument 
presented in “The Rise of U.S. Nuclear Primacy” by Keir A. Lieber 
and Daryl G. Press in the April 2006 issue of Foreign Affairs, a 
publication of the Council on Foreign Relations, an organization 
of American elites. Regardless of the condition of Russian nuclear 
forces, the success of Washington’s first strike and degree of 
protection provided by Washington’s ABM shield against retaliation, 
the article I posted by Steven Starr, “The Lethality of Nuclear 
Weapons,” makes clear that nuclear war has no winners. 
Everyone dies. 
In an article published in the December 2008 issue of Physics Today,
three atmospheric scientists point out that even the substantial 
reduction in nuclear arsenals that the Strategic Offensive 
Reductions Treaty hoped to achieve, from 70,000 warheads 
in 1986 to 1700-2200 warheads by the end of 2012, did not 
reduce the threat that nuclear war presents to life on earth. 
The authors conclude that in addition to the direct blast effects 
of hundreds of millions of human fatalities, “the indirect effects 
would likely eliminate the majority of the human population.” 

The stratospheric smoke from firestorms would cause nuclear 
winter and agricultural collapse. Those who did not perish from 
blast and radiation would starve to death. Ronald Reagan and 
Mikhail Gorbachev understood this. Unfortunately, no successor 
US government has. As far as Washington is concerned, death is 
what happens to others, not to “the exceptional people.” 
(The SORT agreement apparently failed. According to the 
Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, the nine 
nuclear-armed states still possess a total of 16,300 nuclear 
weapons. It is a fact that Washington has 
policymakers who think, incorrectly, 
that nuclear war is winnable and who regard 
nuclear war as a means of preventing the rise of Russia and China 
as checks on Washington’s hegemony over the world. The US 
government, regardless of party in office, is a massive threat 
to life on earth. European governments, which think of themselves 
as civilized, are not, because they enable Washington’s pursuit of 
hegemony. It is this pursuit that threatens life with extinction. 
The ideology that grants “exceptional, 
indispensable America” supremacy is an 
enormous threat to the world.

The destruction of seven countries in whole or in part by 
the West in the 21st century, with the support of “Western 
civilization” and the Western media, comprises powerful 
evidence that the leadership of the Western world is devoid 
of moral conscience and human compassion. Now that 
Washington is armed with its false doctrine of “nuclear 
primacy,” the outlook for humanity is very bleak.

Washington has begun the run up to the 
Third World War, and Europeans seem to be 
on board. As recently as November 2012 NATO Secretary 
General Rasmussen said that NATO does not regard Russia as 
an enemy. Now that the White House Fool and his European 
vassals have convinced Russia that the West is an enemy, 
Rasmussen declared that “we must adapt to the fact that 
Russia now considers us its adversary” by beefing up Ukraine’s 
military along with those of Eastern and Central Europe.

Last month Alexander Vershbow, former US ambassador to Russia, 
currently NATO Deputy Secretary General, declared Russia to be the 
enemy and said that the American and European taxpayers need to 
fork over for the military modernization “not just of Ukraine, but 
also Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan.”

It is possible to see these calls for more military spending 
as just the normal functioning of agents for the US military/security 
complex. Having lost “the war on terror” in Iraq and Afghanistan, 
Washington needs a replacement and has set about resurrecting 
the Cold War.
This is probably how the armaments industry, its shills, 
and part of Washington see it. But the neoconservatives are 
more ambitious. They are not pursuing merely more profits for t
he military/security complex. Their goal is Washington’s hegemony 
over the world, which means reckless actions such as the strategic 
threat that the Obama regime, with the complicity of its European 
vassals, has brought to Russia in Ukraine.

Since last autumn the US government 
has been lying through its teeth about 
Ukraine, blaming Russia for the consequences 
of Washington’s actions, and demonizing Putin 
exactly as Washington demonized Gaddafi, 
Saddam Hussein, Assad, the Taliban, and Iran. 
The presstitute media and the European capitals have seconded the 
lies and propaganda and repeat them endlessly. Consequently, 
the US public’s attitude toward Russia moved sharply negative.

How do you think Russia and China see this? Russia has 
witnessed NATO brought to its borders, a violation of the 
Reagan-Gorbachev understandings. Russia has witnessed the 
US pull out of the ABM treaty and develops a “star wars” shield. 
(Whether or not the shield would work is immaterial. The 
purpose of the shield is to convince the politicians and the 
public that Americans are safe.) Russia has witnessed 
Washington change the role of nuclear weapons in its war 
doctrine from deterrent to preemptive first strike. And now 
Russia listens to a daily stream of lies from the West and 
witnesses the slaughter by Washington’s vassal in Kiev of 
civilians in Russian Ukraine, branded “terrorists” by Washington,
by such weapons as white phosphorus with not a peep of protest 
from the West.

Massive attacks by artillery and air strikes on homes and 
apartments in Russian Ukraine were conducted on the 25th 
anniversary of Tiananmen Square, while Washington and its 
puppets condemned China for an event that did not happen. 
As we now know, there was no massacre in Tiananmen Square. 
It was just another Washington lie like Tonkin Gulf, Saddam 
Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Assad’s use of chemical 
weapons, Iranian nukes, etc. It is an amazing fact that 
the world lives in a false reality created by 
Washington’s lies.

The movie, The Matrix, is a true depiction of life in the West. 
The population lives in a false reality created for them by their 
rulers. A handful of humans have escaped the false existence 
and are committed to bringing humans back to reality. They 
rescue Neo, “The One,” who they believe correctly to have 
the power to free humans from the false reality in which 
they live. Morpheus, the leader of the rebels, explains to Neo:
“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. 
But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? 
Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds 
of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, 
these people are still a part of that system, and that 
makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most 
of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many 
of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the 
system, that they will fight to protect it.” 

I experience this every time I write a column. 
Protests from those determined not to be unplugged 
arrive in emails and on those websites that expose their 
writers to slander by government trolls in comment sections. 
Don’t believe real reality, they insist, believe the false reality.
The Matrix even encompasses part of the Russian and Chinese 
population, especially those educated in the West and those 
susceptible to Western propaganda, but on the whole those 
populations know the difference between lies and truth. 
The problem for Washington is that the 
propaganda that prevails over the Western 
peoples does not prevail over the Russian 
and Chinese governments.

How do you think China reacts when Washington declares 
the South China Sea to be an area of US national interests, 
allocates 60 percent of its vast fleet to the Pacific, and 
constructs new US air and naval bases from the Philippines to 
Suppose all Washington intends is to keep taxpayer funding 
alive for the military/security complex, which launders some 
of the taxpayers’ money and returns it as political campaign 
contributions. Can Russia and China take the risk of viewing 
Washington’s words and deeds in this limited way?

So far the Russians, and only the Russians (and Chinese), 
have remained sensible. Lavrov, the Foreign Minister said: 
“At this stage, we want to give our partners a chance to calm 
down. We’ll see what happens next. If absolutely baseless 
accusations against Russia continue, it there are attempts 
to pressure us with economic leverage, then we may 
reevaluate the situation.” 

If the White House Fool, Washington’s media whores 
and European vassals convince Russia that war is in the cards, 
war will be in the cards. As there is no prospect whatsoever of 
NATO being able to mount a conventional offensive threat 
against Russia anywhere near the size and power of the 
German invasion force in 1941 that met with destruction, 
the war will be nuclear, which will mean the end of all of us.
Keep that firmly in mind as Washington and its media whores
 continue to beat the drums for war. Keep in mind also that a 
long history proves beyond all doubt that everything Washington 
and the presstitute media tells you is a lie serving an undeclared 
agenda. You cannot rectify the situation by voting Democrat instead 
of Republican or by voting Republican instead of Democrat.

Thomas Jefferson told us his solution: 
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time 
with the blood of patriots & tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

There are few patriots in Washington 
but many tyrants.
