I sometimes wonder if
America’s greatest threat is the population’s hyper-patriotism. The bulk of the
population is now at work shutting down the NFL players’ First Amendment
rights, and none of the incensed censors are capable of understanding that it
is they, and not the NFL players, who are attacking the U.S. Constitution. We
have been through all this flag business before, and federal courts have ruled
for the protesters who burnt flags, wore them on their clothes, whatever. Yet,
here we go again.
A Louisiana state
representative has introduced legislation to ban state subsidies for
the New Orleans Saints because of their “disgraceful protests.” It is OK with
Rep. Kenny Havard for Louisiana taxpayers to give hundreds of millions of
dollars in subsidies to the NFL team as long as the players stand for the
anthem, but not if they don’t. It apparently never occurred to Havard to
question whether relatively poor Louisiana taxpayers should be giving hundreds
of millions of dollars to a billionaire team owner. There is no doubt that the
average salary of the Saints exceeds the average salary of Louisiana
Before a few dimwits send
me emails demanding explanation why I stand for anti-American minorities
against “the greatest country in the world,” let us all first consider where
this is going. The answer is: nowhere good. The hyper-patriotism that is being
whipped up is so irrational that it is against the self-interests of the
counter-protesters, who are hurting the visibility of their merchandising brand
and costing the shareholders profits, burning their clothing and expensive
football tickets, and denying themselves their favorite entertainment.
complex, the hegemonic neoconservatives, and the Israel Lobby are sitting
there, licking their chops. They know what to do with this display of ignorant
patriotism. They will turn it against Iran, North Korea, China, and Russia.
Their profits will flow even higher, neocon ambitions will be realized, and
Israel will have the US eliminate another country — Iran — in the way of its
expansion. Or so they think.
Russia cannot afford a
vassal of Washington in Iran or the type of chaos in Iran that now engulfs Iraq
and Libya. It is a short distance from Iran through Azerbaijan or Turkmenistan
into Muslim areas of Russia and former Muslim provinces of the Soviet Union. If
Iran falls, Russia is the next to be destabilized. Additionally, Iran in
Washington’s hands extends to the East Washington’s surrounding of Russia. The
Russian government would be confronted with US missile bases on its borders
ranging from the Baltics through eastern and southern Europe, Ukraine, Georgia
and Iran. Moreover, US missiles in Iran could reach China in a few minutes as
can the US missile bases being constructed on China’s Pacific border under the
guise of countering “the North Korean threat.”
China depends on Iran for
20 percent of its oil supply. China was forced out of its Libyan oil supply by
Washington’s overthrow of Gaddafi. Losing Iran would be a blow. At some point
these two powerful countries will have to realize that their national existence
is at stake. China has been too busy making money to pay attention, and Russia has
been in thrall to its centuries-old desire to be part of the West.
The Russian government’s
policy of replying to Washington’s aggression with diplomacy has failed
totally. This policy has been extremely expensive to Russia and today is a
direct threat to Russia’s national survival. Whether Russia is too controlled
by Washington and Israeli-installed billionaires to attend to its national
interests remains to be seen.
China’s lust for riches
is a non-substitute for national survival.
Washington is counting on
these singular weaknesses of the only two countries capable of serving as a
check on Washington’s unilateralism.
However, there are
countervailing powers in Russia and China. The Operation Command of the Russian
High Command has publicly given its opinion that Washington is preparing a
surprise nuclear attack on Russia. It would be derelict beyond comprehension
for President Putin to ignore this conclusion. Inside China, historic pride is
a rival influence to the lust for riches. The Chinese are determined never
again to be a mere playground for foreign powers.
Sooner or later even the
hubris-overstuffed Zionist Lobby will realize that the American war against
Iran that Israel is demanding is a fuse for a Third World War and that the Jews
will be destroyed along with everyone else. From the “Nile to the Euphrates”
will be a wasteland.
On this website on
September 27, 2017, I addressed what can be done from the Western side to
reduce the tensions that are leading to nuclear armageddon. On the Russian and
Chinese side what can be done is a tri-party mutual defense pact between
Russia, Iran, and China that is made public. This would tell the psychopaths in
Washington and Israel that an attack on Iran means World War III.
If this is not a
deterrent, then Washington and Israel are lost to evil, and life on earth is
Do the Wall Street
Journal’s editorial page editors read their own newspaper?
The frontpage headline
story for the Labor Day weekend was “Low Wage Growth Challenges Fed.” Despite
an alleged 4.4% unemployment rate, which is full employment, there is no real
growth in wages. The front page story pointed out correctly that an economy
alleged to be expanding at full employment, but absent any wage growth or
inflation, is “a puzzle that complicates Federal Reserve policy decisions.”
On the editorial page
itself, under “letters to the editor,” Professor Tony Lima of California State
University points out what I have stressed for years: “The labor-force
participation rate remains at historic lows. Much of the decrease is in the
18-34 age group, while participation rates have increased for those 55 and
older.” Professor Lima points out that more evidence that the American worker
is not in good shape comes from the rising number of Americans who can only
find part-time work, which leaves them with truncated incomes and no fringe
benefits, such as healh care.
Positioned right next to
this factual letter is the lead editorial written by someone who read neither
the front page story or the professor’s letter. The lead editorial declares:
“The biggest labor story this Labor Day is the trouble that employers are
having finding workers across the country.” The Journal’s editorial page
editors believe the solution to the alleged labor shortage is Senator Ron
Johnson’s (R.Wis.) bill to permit the states to give 500,000 work visas to
In my day as a Wall
Street Journal editor and columnist, questions would have been asked that would
have nixed the editorial. For example, how is there a labor shortage when there
is no upward pressure on wages? In tight labor markets wages are bid up as
employers compete for workers. For example, how is the labor market tight when
the labor force participation rate is at historical lows. When jobs are
available, the participation rate rises as people enter the work force to take
I have reported on a
number of occasions that according to Federal Reserve studies, more Americans
in the 24-34 age group live at home with parents than independently, and that
it is those 55 and older who are taking the part time jobs. Why is this? The answer
is that part time jobs do not pay enough to support an independent existence,
and the Federal Reserve’s decade long zero interest rate policy forces retirees
to enter the work force as their retirement savings produce no income. It is
not only the manufacturing jobs of the middle class blue collar workers that
have been given to foreigners in order to cut labor costs and thus maximize
payouts to executives and shareholders, but also tradable professional skill
jobs such as software engineering, design, accounting, and IT—jobs that
Americans expected to get in order to pay off their student loans.
The Wall Street Journal
editorial asserts that the young are not in the work force because they are on
drugs, or on disability, or because of their poor education. However, all over
the country there are college graduates with good educations who cannot find
jobs because the jobs have been offshored. To worsen the crisis, a Republican
Senator from Wisconsin wants to bring in more foreigners on work permits to drive
US wages down lower so that no American can survive on the wage, and the Wall
Street Journal editorial page editors endorse this travesty!
The foreigners on work
visas are paid one-third less than the going US wage. They live together in
groups in cramped quarters. They have no employee rights. They are exploited in
order to raise executive bonuses and shareholder capital gains. I have exposed
this scheme at length in my book, The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism (Clarity
When Trump said he was
going to bring the jobs home, he resonated, but, of course, he will not be
permitted to bring them home, any more than he has been permitted to normalize
relations with Russia.
In America Government is
not in the hands of its people. Government is in the hands of a ruling
oligarchy. Oligarchic rule prevails regardless of electoral outcomes. The
American people are entering a world of slavery more severe than anything that
previously existed. Without jobs, dependent on their masters for trickle-down
benefits that are always subject to being cut, and without voice or
representation, Americans, except for the One Percent, are becoming the most
enslaved people in history.
Americans carry on by
accumulating debt and becoming debt slaves. Many can only make the minimum
payment on their credit card and thus accumulate debt. The Federal Reserve’s
policy has exploded the prices of financial assets. The result is that the bulk
of the population lacks discretionary income, and those with financial assets
are wealthy until values adjust to reality.
As an economist I cannot
identify in history any economy whose affairs have been so badly managed and
prospects so severely damaged as the economy of the United States of America.
In the short/intermediate run policies that damage the prospects for the
American work force benefit what is called the One Percent as jobs offshoring
reduces corporate costs and financialization transfers remaining discretionary
income in interest and fees to the financial sector. But as consumer
discretionary incomes disappear and debt burdens rise, aggregate demand
falters, and there is nothing left to drive the economy.
What we are witnessing in
the United States is the first country to reverse the development process and
to go backward by giving up industry, manufacturing, and tradable professional
skill jobs. The labor force is becoming Third World with lowly paid domestic
service jobs taking the place of high-productivity, high-value added jobs.
The initial response was
to put wives and mothers into the work force, but now even many two-earner
families experience stagnant or falling material living standards. New
university graduates are faced with substantial debts without jobs capable of
producing sufficient income to pay off the debts.
Now the US is on a course
of travelling backward at a faster rate. Robots are to take over more and more
jobs, displacing more people. Robots don’t buy houses, furniture, appliances,
cars, clothes, food, entertainment, medical services, etc. Unless Robots pay
payroll taxes, the financing for Social Security and Medicare will collapse.
And it goes on down from there. Consumer spending simply dries up, so who
purcheses the goods and services supplied by robots?
To find such important
considerations absent in public debate suggests that the United States will
continue on the country’s de-industrialization, de-manufacturing trajectory.
America’s Jews Are Driving U.S. Wars — Philip
Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi explains that for
the last 16 years the United States has been manipulated into fighting wars for
Israel. Giraldi explains the tremendous power that Zionists have over
Washington’s foreign policy and American public opinion.
Shouldn't they recuse themselves when dealing with the Middle East?
By Philip Giraldi
UPDATE: September 25, 2017 - On the morning of September
21st Phil Giraldi was fired over the phone by The American
Conservative, where he had been a regular contributor for fourteen years.
He was told that “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars” was unacceptable.
The TAC management and board appear to have forgotten that the
magazine was launched with an article by founder Pat Buchanan entitled “Whose
War?” which largely made the same claims that Giraldi made about the
Jewish push for another war, in that case with Iraq. Buchanan was vilified and
denounced as an anti-Semite by many of the same people who are now similarly
September 19, 2017 "Information Clearing House"
- I spoke recently at a conference on America’s war party where
afterwards an elderly gentleman came up to me and asked, “Why doesn’t anyone
ever speak honestly about the six-hundred-pound gorilla in the room? Nobody has
mentioned Israel in this conference and we all know it’s American Jews with all
their money and power who are supporting every war in the Middle East for
Netanyahu? Shouldn’t we start calling them out and not letting them get away
It was a question
combined with a comment that I have heard many times before and my answer is
always the same: any organization that aspires to be heard on foreign policy
knows that to touch the live wire of Israel and American Jews guarantees a
quick trip to obscurity. Jewish groups and deep pocket individual donors not
only control the politicians, they own and run the media and entertainment
industries, meaning that no one will hear about or from the offending party
ever again. They are particularly sensitive on the issue of so-called “dual
loyalty,” particularly as the expression itself is a bit of a sham since it is
pretty clear that some of them only have real loyalty to Israel.
Most recently, some
pundits, including myself, have been warning of
an impending war with Iran. To be sure, the urging to strike Iran comes from
many quarters, to include generals in the Administration who always think first
in terms of settling problems through force, from a Saudi government obsessed
with fear over Iranian hegemony, and, of course, from Israel itself. But what
makes the war engine run is provided by American Jews who have taken upon
themselves the onerous task of starting a war with a country that does not
conceivably threaten the United States. They have been very successful at
faking the Iranian threat, so much so that nearly all Republican and most
Democratic congressmen as well as much of the media seem to be convinced that
Iran needs to be dealt with firmly, most definitely by using the U.S. military,
and the sooner the better.
And while they are doing
it, the issue that nearly all the Iran haters are Jewish has somehow fallen out
of sight, as if it does not matter. But it should matter. A
recent article in the New Yorker on stopping the impending
war with Iran strangely suggests that the current generation “Iran hawks” might
be a force of moderation regarding policy options given the lessons learned
from Iraq. The article cites as hardliners on Iran David Frum, Max Boot, Bill
Kristol and Bret Stephens.
Daniel Larison over
at The American Conservative has a
good review of the New Yorker piece entitled “Yes, Iran
Hawks Want Conflict with Iran,” which identifies the four above cited hawks by
name before describing them as “…a Who’s Who of consistently lousy foreign
policy thinking. If they have been right about any major foreign policy issue
in the last twenty years, it would be news to the entire world. Every single
one of them hates the nuclear deal with Iran with a passion, and they have
argued in favor of military action against Iran at one point or another. There
is zero evidence that any of them would oppose attacking Iran.”
And I would add a few
more names, Mark Dubowitz, Michael Ledeen and Reuel Marc Gerecht of the
Foundation for Defense of Democracies; Daniel Pipes of the Middle East Forum;
John Podhoretz of Commentary magazine; Elliot Abrams of the Council
on Foreign Relations; Meyrav Wurmser of the Middle East Media Research Institute;
Kimberly Kagan of the Institute for the Study of War; and Frederick Kagan,
Danielle Pletka and David Wurmser of the American Enterprise Institute. And you
can also throw into the hopper entire organizations like The American Israel
Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Washington Institute for Near East Policy
(WINEP) and the Hudson Institute. And yep, they’re all Jewish, plus most of
them would self-describe as neo-conservatives. And I might add that only one of
the named individuals has ever served in any branch of the American military –
David Wurmser was once in the Navy reserve. These individuals largely
constitute a cabal of sanctimonious chairborne warriors who prefer to do the
heavy thinking while they let others do the fighting and dying.
So it is safe to say that
much of the agitation to do something about Iran comes from Israel and from
American Jews. Indeed, I would opine that most of the fury from Congress re
Iran comes from the same source, with AIPAC showering our Solons on the Potomac
with “fact sheets” explaining how Iran is worthy of annihilation because it has
pledged to “destroy Israel,” which is both a lie and an impossibility as Tehran
does not have the resources to carry out such a task. The AIPAC lies are then
picked up and replayed by an obliging media, where nearly every “expert” who
speaks about the Middle East on television and radio or who is interviewed for
newspaper stories is Jewish.
One might also add that
neocons as a group were founded by Jews and are largely Jewish, hence their
universal attachment to the state of Israel. They first rose into prominence
when they obtained a number of national security positions during the Reagan
Administration and their ascendancy was completed when they staffed senior
positions in the Pentagon and White House under George W. Bush. Recall for a
moment Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, and Scooter Libby. Yes, all Jewish and all
conduits for the false information that led to a war that has spread and
effectively destroyed much of the Middle East. Except for Israel, of course.
Philip Zelikow, also Jewish, in a moment of candor, admitted
that the Iraq War, in his opinion, was fought for Israel.
Add to the folly a Jewish
U.S. Ambassador to Israel who identifies with the most right-wing Israeli
settler elements, a White House appointed chief negotiator who is Jewish and a
Jewish son-in-law who is also involved in formulating Middle East policy. Is anyone
providing an alternative viewpoint to eternal and uncritical support for
Benjamin Netanyahu and his kleptocratic regime of racist thugs? I think not.
There are a couple of
simple fixes for the dominant involvement of American Jews in foreign policy
issues where they have a personal interest due to their ethnicity or family
ties. First of all, don’t put them into national security positions involving
the Middle East, where they will potentially be conflicted. Let them worry
instead about North Korea, which does not have a Jewish minority and which was
not involved in the holocaust. This type of solution was, in fact, somewhat of
a policy regarding the U.S. Ambassador position in Israel. No Jew was appointed
to avoid any conflict of interest prior to 1995, an understanding that was
violated by Bill Clinton (wouldn’t you know it!) who named Martin Indyk to the
post. Indyk was not even an American citizen at the time and had to be
naturalized quickly prior to being approved by congress.
Those American Jews who
are strongly attached to Israel and somehow find themselves in senior policy
making positions involving the Middle East and who actually possess any
integrity on the issue should recuse themselves, just as any judge would do if
he were presiding over a case in which he had a personal interest. Any American
should be free to exercise first amendment rights to debate possible options
regarding policy, up to and including embracing positions that damage the
United States and benefit a foreign nation. But if he or she is in a position
to actually create those policies, he or she should butt out and leave the
policy generation to those who have no personal baggage.
For those American Jews
who lack any shred of integrity, the media should be required to label them at
the bottom of the television screen whenever they pop up, e.g. Bill Kristol is
“Jewish and an outspoken supporter of the state of Israel.” That would be
kind-of-like a warning label on a bottle of rat poison – translating roughly as
“ingest even the tiniest little dosage of the nonsense spewed by Bill Kristol
at your own peril.”
As none of the above is
likely to happen, the only alternative is for American citizens who are tired
of having their country’s national security interests hijacked by a group that
is in thrall to a foreign government to become more assertive about what is
happening. Shine a little light into the darkness and recognize who is being
diddled and by whom. Call it like it is. And if someone’s feelings are hurt, too
bad. We don’t need a war with Iran because Israel wants one and some rich and
powerful American Jews are happy to deliver. Seriously, we don’t need it.

Dear Readers: This is your website. It needs your
Paul Craig Roberts
Despite clear evidence that Washington has chosen
the path to conflict with Russia and China, European governments have not
objected. Poland, Ukraine, and the Baltics even seem to demand more conflict or
a quicker path to conflict. The European peoples themselves have not elected
leadership that is willing to repudiate vassalage to Washington and conduct a
rational foreign policy toward Russia.
Last Sunday’s German election was an opportunity for
the German electorate to repudiate Washington vassal Angela Merkel and the
Christian Democratic Union (CDU), and to some extent they did. But you would
never know it from the news reporting.
The headlines were Merkel wins fourth term. In the
US Hillary’s folks emphasize that Trump lost the popular vote, but Merkel lost
it by 70%. Only 3 Germans out of 10 voted for her. Her party’s vote fell from
41.6% in the previous election to just under 33%.
Merkel’s coalition partner, the Social Democratic
Party (SDU) also suffered a vote decline that resulted in the SDU refusing to
enter into another coalition government with Merkel. This means that Merkel has
to go to the Free Democratic party (FDP) which got 10.7 percent of the vote and
to the Greens which got 8.9 percent of the vote. That coalition produces 52.6
percent from which a government can be formed. Merkel’s “win” was such a defeat
that she is perhaps on the way out.
Where did the votes lost by Merkel’s party and
coalition partner (SDU) go?
They went to a new party that stands for Germany, and not for Washington, not
for the refugees from Washington’s wars, and not for conflict with Russia. This
party is Alternative for Germany (AfD). It is now Germany’s third largest
political party with 12.6% of the vote and 94 seats in the German legislature.
As the party is against the massive Muslim
immigration supported by Merkel and against Washington’s policy toward Russia,
the AfD was promptly branded “far-right,” a term that is saddled with Nazi
In other words, if you stick up for Germany and the
German people, you are a Nazi.
The German people have been so brainwashed by
Washington since World War II that Germans have no positive conception of
themselves, only guilt and fear of anything said to be “far right.” Yet, the
third largest vote went to the “far right” party.
Jewish organizations have gone berserk over the AfD
vote. Hitler is being resurrected, and so on. It is difficult to believe that
Jews are really this paranoid. One sometimes wonders if Jewish watchdog
organizations have some other agenda.
Clearly, in Germany a political party, which does
not want to be in conflict with Russia or to be the dumping ground for the
human residue of Washington’s wars in the Middle East and Africa, is defined by
presstitutes in the US, Europe, Canada, UK, Australia, and even in English
language Russian news services such as Sputnik, as “far right.”
Although it is encouraging to see 12.6% of the
German people wake up, the vote seems to be based less on avoiding the looming
conflict with Russia and more on not being the dumping ground for the human
debris of Washington’s wars. How does one judge these two threats to Germany?
Germany does not exist, nor does Europe, if
Washington brings nuclear conflict to the world. Germany does not exist if the
country is overrun by other peoples fleeing from Washington’s atrocities in the
Middle East and Africa.
In the first case, there is nothing left of Germany.
In the second case, there is a country that is no longer German.
As far as we have evidence, Western Europe is
captive by Washington and will go to its destruction rather than dissociate
from Washington’s foreign policy. But there are signs of hope in parts of
Unlike Germany, some of the Eastern European
countries have refused to accept their quota of refugees from Washington’s
wars. The EU Commission itself accepts its vassalage function as a dumping
ground for Washington’s “collateral damage,” the euphemism Washington applies
to the casualties of its wars for profits and hegemony, and is suing the EU
members who refuse their quotas of refugees. The former president of the Czech
Republic, Vaclav Klaus, responded to the EU’s determination to impose immigrant
quotas on the Czech nation by declaring: “The time has come to start preparing
the exit of our country from the European Union.” http://gatesofvienna.net/2017/06/vaclav-klaus-the-time-has-come-to-start-preparing-the-exit-of-our-country-from-the-european-union/
The dictatorial character of the EU is a good reason
for every member to leave it. Countries already subjected to looting by
American global corporations and financial entities have no spare money with
which to support the victims of Washington’s illegal wars. For the EU to try to
force Washington’s external war costs upon its members proves how much of a
tool of Washington the EU is.
The more important reason for Eastern Europe, or
that part of it that still has the capability of independent thought, is to
avoid nuclear armageddon. Washington’s quest for world hegemony is driving the
world to the third, and final, World War. Eastern European governments could
prevent this looming war by breaking from their vassalage to Washington and
forming a neutral buffer between NATO and Russia.
Such realistic behavior on the part of Eastern
Europe could possibly even wake up Germany, France, and Great Britain to the
extreme danger that they face as Washington’s vassals.
Dear Europeans, yes, non-European immigration is a
threat. So is conflict with Russia. Currently, due to your lack of leadership
and any significant awareness on your own part, you are incapable of doing
anything to save yourselves and the rest of us.
Exhausted, indoctrinated, brainwashed, can Europe do
anything except submit to its and the world’s demise?
Dos de los estados más poblados de Estados Unidos, Texas y Florida, están en
ruinas por huracanes, y Washington está fomentando más guerras.
La deuda nacional de Estados Unidos es ahora de más de 20 billones de dólares,
y Washington está fomentando más guerras.
El mundo entero está ayudando a Washington a fomentar guerras -incluyendo dos
países que son su objetivo- Rusia y China-, los cuales están ayudando a
Washington a fomentar más guerras. Lo creas o no, tanto Rusia como China
votaron con Washington en el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU para imponer más y
más duras sanciones a Corea del Norte, un país culpable de nada más que un
deseo de tener los medios para protegerse de los Estados Unidos y no
convertirse en otra víctima de Washington como Afganistán, Irak, Libia,
Somalia, Yemen, Siria, Serbia y Ucrania derribada en un golpe de Estado
norteamericano y ahora condenada en la pobreza.

Una vez pensé que Rusia y China eran controles sobre el unilateralismo de
Washington, pero aparentemente no. Ambos gobiernos han sido castigados por
Washington y ambos votaron para castigar a Corea del Norte por esforzarse por
estar suficientemente armada para proteger su soberanía de la agresividad de
¿Por qué Rusia y China repiten el mismo error que cometieron cuando apoyaron la
resolución de la ONU sobre Libia, una resolución que Washington y la OTAN
pusieron sobre sus cabezas cuando lanzaron ataques aéreos que ayudaron a los
“jihadistas” organizados por la CIA a derrocar al gobierno progresista de Libia
y assesinar a Gaddafi?
Rusia sabe que está rodeada de bases nucleares y militares estadounidenses. Lo
mismo ocurre con China. La pregunta es: ¿Rusia y China han capitulado por
miedo? ¿O es su cooperación con Washington un ardid mientras preparan sus
propios ataques sobre Washington, o están los dos gobiernos equivocados,
tratando de cooperar con Washington en las sanciones para así evitar tener que
enfrentar un ataque militar estadounidense contra Corea del Norte?
Se requiere de mucha competencia para enfrentar al diablo, y probablemente hay
más maldad en Washington que la competencia que hay en Rusia y China, dos
países interesados en ser ricos en una medida tal que les podría costar su
soberanía y existencia.
Cuando uno ve que países tan poderosos como Rusia y China se desmoronan bajo la
presión de Washington en el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU, se pregunta si los
análisis de las muchas debilidades de Washington son reales y, si son reales,
si Rusia y China son conscientes de ellos.
¿Cómo se puede explicar el por qué sobre dos países cuya soberanía está en el
camino de la hegemonía mundial de Washington, que ayudan a su conocido enemigo
a intimidar a otro país pequeño, especialmente uno en la órbita de influencia
de China y Rusia? ¿Cómo puede Rusia quejarse de sanciones contra Rusia basadas
en nada más que propaganda de Washington, cuando Rusia apoya sanciones contra
Corea del Norte sobre la base de la propaganda de Washington?
Rusia y China no tienen nada que temer de las armas nucleares de Corea del
Norte. De hecho, nadie excepto un país que ataca a Corea del Norte. ¿Cuál es la
explicación de que Rusia y China se alineen con la política exterior de
Washington contra Corea del Norte cuando Rusia y China saben que la política
exterior de Washington es hostil a Rusia y China?
El otro día, Washington anunció que estaba aumentando sus buques de guerra en
el Mar de China Meridional para asegurarse de que China no suponga que el Mar
de China Meridional es chino, en lugar de aguas territoriales de Estados
Unidos. Justo el otro día, más acusaciones de interferencia electoral fueron
puestas contra Rusia. Esta vez fue Facebook el mecanismo a través del cual
Rusia robó las elecciones presidenciales de Estados Unidos.
Estas posiciones tomadas por Washington son absurdas. Sin embargo, se están
convirtiendo en la realidad. El aterrador desarrollo es que el mundo entero, la
totalidad de la ONU y el Consejo de Seguridad, están ahora capturados por
Washington en The Matrix. Parece que ni siquiera Rusia y China pueden ver su
propio interés nacional.
Rusia y China están trabajando mano a mano con Washington hacia su propia
Esto se está volviendo bíblico. Washington, el anti-Cristo, está subvirtiendo
todo bien en la tierra.
Sooner or later it will dawn on the Russian
government that Washington is not a rational government with which diplomacy
can be practiced, peace pursued, and agreements reached. Sooner or later it
will dawn on the Russian government that far from being rational, Washington is
a criminally insane collection of psychopaths in thrall to the
military/security complex which, in turn, is in thrawl to its massive profits.
In other words, for the powerful interest groups
that control the US government, war is a profit center. No amount of Russian
diplomacy can do anything about this fact.
It is unfortunate that the Russian government did
not realize what it was dealing with. If the Russian government had not
projected its own rationality on Washington, the war in Syria would have been
over a couple of years ago. Instead, hoping for a settlement, the Russians were
stop-go/stop-go, which gave Washington time to recover from the shock of
Russian intervention and put in place plans to partition Syria in order to keep
the conflict alive forever. Having dallied in hopes of a settlement, the danger
of which The Saker warns us is real. http://thesaker.is/very-dangerous-escalation-in-syria/
The protests by black pro-football players by
refusing to stand for the national anthem has come at an unfortunate time. It
is playing into the hands of the military/security complex which is using
President Trump’s loud voice challenging the “anti-americanism” to whip up
patriotic fervor. It is amazing how people fall for it every time. The
military/security complex and their presstitutes are creating public anger at
those “attacking our country.” This anger will be turned from black football
players to Russia.
With the public in its pocket, the
military/security complex will increase its reckless provocations of Russia
until we are all dead.
