Washington Threatens The World - Paul Craig Roberts


Honored Reader,

Actually the genocide of the Ukrainian Junta against its own 
population is being continued. 900,000 Ukrainians are fleeing. 
The Ukrainian military urges the population of Dontzek, the encircled 
city, to flee their homes. 200,000 have already fled and now one wants 
to dispel the rest. Whereto does not matter to Kiev, the main thing
gone, before the great murdering and slaughter of the resistance fighters 
or those human Beings, who have neither the money nor the possibility 
to flee, continues.

For days human Beings vegetate without water, electricity and 
spend the most time in the cellars of their houses, in order to 
protect themselves from the bombs.
Russia wants to help with this suffering and put together an 
aids convoy of 280 trucks with food, medical supplies and generators. 
Kiev refuses this and shows the true face, despising human Beings.
Medially and politically, Russia remains the rogue State and Putin
the “arsonist”.

On another front on the other hand it became very quiet. 
One hears nothing about flight MH17. Obviously the British 
do not find the key for the black box, since it was handed over 
to them, otherwise one cannot explain the silence. Or yet? 
Obviously the data of the flight recorder does not serve the 
propaganda of the USA and Kiev and the never verified assumption 
that the “rebels” shot down the airliner.

And Obama? He cares very little about it, as long as he can 
enjoy his luxury vacation. Sometimes he makes threats in the 
direction of Putin, protects Israel’s mass murderer Netanjahu, 
calls up EU political clowns to give orders or orders a drone 
attack against civilians.
An empire as it eats and lives and as it goes down in these days.
And this with the intention, to take down the whole world. 
The threat that comes from the psychopath 
in the White House is truly not a small matter.

Paul Craig Roberts reveals this again and very clearly in 
the article, which is published here.
A threat “which we no longer can accept”.

Therefore more than ever it is necessary to reveal the truth 
and speak it. To work against the media lies and the stupidity of 
the politicians; tirelessly until it has established itself on all lines.

And the here-published contribution serves foremost that necessity.

In Love

Washington Threatens The World 
by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts 
August 8, 2014

The consequence of Washington’s reckless and irresponsible 
political and military interventions in Iraq, Libya, and Syria has 
been to unleash evil. The various sects that lived in peace under 
the rule of Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, and Assad are butchering 
one another, and a new group, ISIS, is in the process of creating 
a new state out of parts of Iraq and Syria.

The turmoil brought into the Middle East by the Bush and 
Obama regimes has meant death and displacement for millions 
and untold future deaths. As I write 40,000 Iraqis are stranded 
on a mountain top without water awaiting death at the hands 
of ISIS, a creation of US meddling. The reality in the Middle East 
stands in vast contradiction to the stage managed landing of 
George W. Bush on the US aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln 
where Bush declared “Mission Accomplished” on May 1, 2003. 

The mission that Washington accomplished was to wreck the 
Middle East and the lives of millions of people and to destroy 
America’s reputation in the process. Thanks to the demonic 
neoconservative Bush regime, today America is regarded by 
the rest of the world as the greatest threat to world peace.

The Clinton regime’s attack on Serbia set the pattern. 
Bush upped the ante with Washington’s naked aggression 
against Afghanistan, which Washington clothed in Orwellian 
language–”Operation Enduring Freedom.”
Washington brought ruin, not freedom, to Afghanistan. 
After 13 years of blowing up the country, Washington is 
now withdrawing, the “superpower” having been defeated 
by a few thousand lightly armed Taliban, but leaving a 
wasteland behind for which Washington will accept no 
responsibility. Another source of endless Middle East turmoil
is Israel whose theft of Palestine is Washington-enabled. 

In the middle of Israel’s latest attack on civilians in Gaza, 
the US Congress passed resolutions in support of Israel’s war 
crimes and voted hundreds of millions of dollars to pay for 
Israel’s ammunition. Here we witness Great Moral America 
100 percent in support of unambiguous war crimes against 
essentially defenseless people.

When Israel murders women and children, 
Washington calls it “Israel’s right to defend 
their own country”–a country that Israel stole 
from Palestinians–but when Palestinians 
retaliate Washington calls it “terrorism.” 

By supporting Israel, declared to be a terrorist state by a few 
moral governments that still exist, and accused of war crimes 
by the UN General Secretary, Washington is in violation of its 
own laws against supporting terrorist states.

Of course, Washington itself is the leading 
terrorist state. Therefore, it is illegal under US law for 
Washington to support itself. Washington, however, 
does not accept law, neither domestic nor 
international, as a constraint on its actions. Washington is 
“exceptional, indispensable.” No one else counts. No law, no 
Constitution, and no humane consideration has authority to 
constrain Washington’s will. In its claims Washington surpasses 
those of the Third Reich.
As horrific as Washington’s recklessness toward the Middle East 
is, Washington’s recklessness toward Russia is many orders of 
magnitude greater. Washington has convinced nuclear armed Russia 
that Washington is planning a nuclear first strike.

In response Russia is beefing up its nuclear forces and testing 
US air defense reactions. 
It is difficult to imagine a more irresponsible act than to 
convince Russia that Washington intends to hit Russia with 
a preemptive first strike. One of Putin’s advisers has explained 
to the Russian media Washington’s first strike intentions, 
and a member of the Russian Duma has made a documented 
presentation of Washington’s first strike intentions. http://financearmageddon.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/official-warning-u-s-to-hit-russia-with.html By marshaling the evidence, 
I have pointed out in my columns that it is impossible 
for Russia to avoid this conclusion. China is aware that China
faces the same threat from Washington. 
China’s response to Washington’s war plans against 
China was to demonstrate how China’s nuclear forces 
would be used in response to Washington’s attack on China 
to destroy the US. China made this public, hoping to create
opposition among Americans to Washington’s war plans 
against China. 
Like Russia, China is a rising country that does not 
need war in order to succeed. The only country on earth that 
needs war is Washington, and that is because Washington’s
goal is the neoconservative one of exercising hegemony over 
the world. Prior to the Bush and Obama regimes, every previous 
US president went to great efforts to avoid telegraphing any nuclear 
threat. US war doctrine was careful to keep nuclear weapons limited 
to retaliation in the event the US suffered a nuclear attack. The 
purpose of nuclear forces was to prevent the use of such weapons. 
The reckless George W. Bush regime elevated nuclear weapons to 
preemptive first use, thus destroying the constraint placed on the 
use of nuclear weapons.
The overriding purpose of the Reagan administration was to end 
the cold war and, thereby, the threat of nuclear war. The George 
W. Bush regime, together with the Obama regime’s demonization 
of Russia, have overturned President Reagan’s unique achievement 
and made nuclear war likely.

When the incompetent Obama regime decided to overthrow 
the democratically elected government in Ukraine and install 
a puppet government of Washington’s choosing, the Obama 
State Department, run by neoconservative ideologues, forgot 
that the eastern and southern portions of Ukraine consist of 
former Russian provinces that were attached to the Ukraine 
Soviet Socialist Republic by Communist Party leaders when 
Ukraine and Russia were part of the same country–the Soviet 
Union. When the Russophobic stooges that Washington installed 
in Kiev demonstrated in word and deed their hostility to Ukraine’s 
Russian population, the former Russian provinces declared their 
desire to return to mother Russia. This is not surprising, nor is 
it something that can be blamed on Russia.

Crimea succeeded in returning to Russia, where Crimea resided 
since the 1700s, but Putin, hoping to defuse the propaganda war 
that Washington was mounting against him did not accept the pleas
from the other former Russian provinces. Consequently, Washington’s
stooges in Kiev felt free to attack the protesting provinces and have 
been following the Israeli policy of attacking civilian populations, 
civilian residences, and civilian infrastructure.

The presstitute Western media ignored the facts and accused 
Russia of invading and annexing parts of Ukraine. This lie is 
comparable to the lies that US Secretary of State Colin Powell 
told the UN about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction in behalf 
of the criminal Bush regime, lies that Colin Powell later apologized 
for to no avail as Iraq had been destroyed by his lies.
When the Malaysian airliner was destroyed, before any facts 
were known Russia was blamed. 

The British media was especially primed to blame Russia almost 
the instant it was known the airliner was downed. I heard the 
BBC’s gross misrepresentation and blatant lies on American 
National Public Radio, and only the Daily Mail’s propagandistic 
account was worse. The entire “news” event has the appearance of 

orchestration prior to the event, which, of course, suggests that 
Washington was behind it.

The airliner deaths became all important for Washington’s 
propaganda war. The 290 casualties are unfortunate, but 
they are a small fraction of the deaths that Israel was inflicting on 
Palestinians at the same moment without provoking any protests 
from Western governments, as distinct from Western peoples in 
the streets, people whose protests were conveniently suppressed 
for Israel by Western security forces.
Washington used the downing of the airliner, which probably was 
Washington’s responsibility, as an excuse for another round of 
sanctions and to pressure its European puppets to join the sanctions 
with sanctions of their own, which Washington’s EU puppets did.

Washington relies on accusations and insinuations and refuses 
to release the evidence from the satellite photos, because the 
photos do not support Washington’s lies.  
Facts are not permitted to interfere with 
Washington’s demonization of Russia any 
more than facts interfered with Washington’s demonization of Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Iran.

Twenty-two reckless and irresponsible US senators have introduced 
the “Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014,” US Senate bill 2277, sponsored by Senator Bob Corker, who well represents in his ignorance 
and stupidity what appears to be the majority of the American population 
or the majority of voters in the state of Tennessee. Corker’s bill is a
mindless piece of legislation designed to start a war that would be 
likely to leave no survivors. Apparently, idiotic Americans will elect 
any fool to power.

The belief that Russia is responsible for the downed Malaysian 
airliner has become fact in Western capitals despite the total 
absence of even a tiny scrap of evidence in behalf of the claim. 
Moreover, even it the accusation were true, is one airliner worth 
a World War?

The UK Defense Committee has concluded that a broke and 
militarily impotent UK must “focus on the defense of Europe 
against Russia.” The military spending drums, if not the war 
drums, are beating and the entire West has joined in. A militarily 
impotent Britain is going to defend Europe from a non-existent, 
although much proclaimed, attack from the Russian bear.
US and NATO military dignitaries and the Pentagon chief are 
issuing Russia Threat Warnings based on alleged but non-existent 
Russian troop-buildups on Ukraine’s border. According to the the 
Western Ministry of Propaganda if Russia defends the Russian 
populations in Ukraine from military attack from Washington’s 
stooge government in Kiev, it is proof that Russia is the villain.
Washington’s propaganda campaign has succeeded in turning 
Russia into a threat. Polls show that 69 percent of Americans 
now regard Russia as a threat, and that the confidence of 
Russians in American leadership has vanished.

Russians and their government observe the identical 
demonization of their country and their leader as they 
observed of Iraq and Saddam Hussein, of Libya and Gaddafi, 
of Syria and Assad, and of Afghanistan and the Taliban just 
prior to military assaults on these countries by the West. 

For a Russian, the safest conclusion from 
the evidence is that Washington intends 
war on Russia.

It is my opinion that the irresponsibility and recklessness of 
the Obama regime is without precedent. Never before has the 
United States government or the government of any nuclear 
power gone to such great efforts to convince another nuclear 
power that that power was being set up for attack. It is difficult 
to imagine a more provocative act that more endangers life on 
earth. Indeed, the White House Fool has doubled up, convincing 
both Russia and China that Washington is planning a preemptive 
first strike on both.
Republicans want to sue or to impeach Obama over relatively 
inconsequential issues, such as ObamaCare. 
Why don’t Republicans want to impeach Obama over 
such a critical issue as subjecting the 
world to the risk of nuclear armageddon?
The answer is that the Republicans are as crazed as the 
Democrats. Their leaders, such as John McCain and Lindsay 
Graham, are determined that “we stand up to the Russians!” 
Wherever one looks in American politics one sees crazed people, 
psychopaths and sociopaths who should not be in political office.

Washington long ago gave up diplomacy. Washington relies on 
force and intimidation. The US government is utterly devoid of 
judgment. This is why polls show that the rest of the world 
regards the US government as the greatest threat to world 
peace. Today (August 8, 2014) Handelsblatt, Germany’s 
Wall Street Journal, wrote in a signed editorial by the publisher:
“The American tendency to move from verbal escalation to 
military escalation–the isolation, demonization, and attacking 
of enemies–has not proven effective. The last successful 
major military action the US conducted was the Normandy 
landing [in 1944]. Everything else – Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, 
and Afghanistan – was a clear failure. Moving NATO units 
towards the Polish border with Russia and thinking about arming 
Ukraine is a continuation of relying on military means in the 
absence of diplomacy.”

Washington’s puppet states–all of Europe, 
Japan, Canada, and Australia–enable 
Washington’s unrivaled danger to the 
world by their support of Washington’s agenda 
of exercising hegemony over the entire world.

The 100th anniversary of World War I is upon us. And the folly that 
caused this war is being repeated. WWI destroyed a civilized 
Western world, and it was the work of a mere handful of scheming 
people. The result was Lenin, the Soviet Union, Hitler, the rise of 
American Imperialism, Korea, Vietnam, the military interventions 
that created ISIS, and now resurrected conflict between Washington 
and Russia that President Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev had ended.
As Stephen Starr has pointed out on my website, 
if merely 10% of the nuclear weapons in the US and Russian 
arsenals are used, life on earth terminates.

Dear readers, ask yourselves, when has Washington told you 
anything that was not a lie? Washington’s lies have caused millions 
of casualties. Do you want to be a casualty of Washington’s lies?
Do you believe that Washington’s lies and propaganda about 
the Malaysian airliner and Ukraine are worth risking life on earth? 

Who is so gullible that he cannot recognize 
that Washington’s lies about Ukraine are like Washington’s lies about Hussein’s weapons of 
mass destruction, Iranian nukes, and Assad’s 
use of chemical weapons?

Do you think that the neoconservative influence that prevails 
in Washington, regardless of the political party in office, is 
too dangerous to be tolerated?
