Paul Craig Roberts: Pushing Toward The Final War

Tyler Durden's picture


Authored by Paul Craig Roberts via his blog,

Does Obama realize that he is leading the US and its puppet states to war with Russia and China, or is Obama being manipulated into this disaster by his neoconservative speech writers and government officials? World War 1 (and World War 2) was the result of the ambitions and mistakes of a very small number of people. Only one head of state was actually involved–the President of France.

In The genesis Of The World War, Harry Elmer Barnes shows that World War 1 was the product of 4 or 5 people. Three stand out: Raymond Poincare`, President of France, Sergei Sazonov, Russian Foreign Minister, and Alexander Izvolski, Russian Ambassador to France. Poincare` wanted Alsace-Lorraine from Germany, and the Russians wanted Istanbul and the Bosphorus Strait, which connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. They realized that their ambitions required a general European war and worked to produce the desired war.

A Franco-Russian Alliance was formed. This alliance became the vehicle for orchestrating the war. The British government, thanks to the incompetence, stupidity, or whatever of its Foreign Minister, Sir Edward Grey, was pulled into the Franco-Russian Alliance. The war was started by Russia’s mobilization. The German Kaiser, Wilhelm II, was blamed for the war despite the fact that he did everything possible to avoid it.

Barnes’ book was published in 1926. His reward for confronting the corrupt court historians with the truth was to be accused of being paid by Germany to write his history. Eighty-six years later historian Christopher Clark in his book, The Sleepwalkers, comes to essentially the same conclusion as Barnes.

In the history I was taught the war was blamed on Germany for challenging British naval supremacy by building too many battleships. The court historians who gave us this tale helped to set up World War 2.

We are again on the road to World War. One hundred years ago the creation of a world war by a few had to be done under the cover of deception. Germany had to be caught off guard. The British had to be manipulated and, of course, people in all the countries involved had to be propagandized and brainwashed.

Today the drive to war is blatantly obvious. The lies are obvious, and the entire West is participating, both media and governments.

The American puppet, Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper, openly lied on Canadian TV that Russian President Putin had invaded Crimea, threatened Ukraine, and was restarting the Cold War. The host of the TV program sat and nodded his head in agreement with these bald-faced lies.

The script that Washington handed to its Canadian puppet has been handed to all of Washington’s puppets, and everywhere in the West the message is the same. “Putin invaded and annexed Crimea, Putin is determined to rebuild the Soviet Empire, Putin must be stopped.”

I hear from many Canadians who are outraged that their elected government represents Washington and not Canadians, but as bad as Harper is, Obama and Fox “News” are worse.

On March 26 I managed to catch a bit of Fox “news.” Murdoch’s propaganda organ was reporting that Putin was restoring the Soviet era practice of exercise. Fox “news” made this report into a threatening and dangerous gesture toward the West. Fox produced an “expert,” whose name I caught as Eric Steckelbeck or something like that. The “expert” declared that Putin was creating “the Hitler youth,” with a view toward rebuilding the Soviet empire.

The extraordinary transparent lie that Russia sent an army into Ukraine and annexed Crimea is now accepted as fact everywhere in the West, even among critics of US policy toward Russia.

Obama, whose government overthrew the democratically elected government in Ukraine and appointed a stooge government that has threatened the Russian provinces of Ukraine, falsely accuses Putin of “invading and annexing” Crimea.

Obama, or his handlers and programers, are relying on the total historical ignorance of Western peoples. The ignorance and gullibility of Western peoples allows the American neoconservatives to fashion “news” that controls their minds.

Obama recently declared that Washington’s destruction of Iraq–up to one million killed, four million displaced, infrastructure in ruins, sectarian violence exploding, a country in total ruins–is nowhere near as bad as Russia’s acceptance of Crimean self-determination. US Secretary of State John Kerry actually ordered Putin to prevent the referendum and stop Crimeans from exercising self-determination.

Obama’s speech on March 26 at the Palace of Fine Arts in Brussels is surreal. It is beyond hypocrisy. Obama says that Western ideals are challenged by self-determination in Crimea. Russia, Obama says, must be punished by the West for permitting Crimeans to exercise self-determination. The return of a Russian province on its own volition to its mother country where it existed for 200 years is presented by Obama as a dictatorial, anti-democratic act of tyranny.

Here was Obama, whose government has just overthrown the elected, democratic government of Ukraine and substituted stooges chosen by Washington in the place of the elected government, speaking of the hallowed ideal that “people in nations can make their own decisions about their future.” That is exactly what Crimea did, and that is exactly what the US coup in Kiev contravened. In the twisted mind of Obama, self-determination consists of governments imposed by Washington.

Here was Obama, who has shredded the US Constitution, speaking of “individual rights and rule of law.” Where is this rule of law? It is certainly not in Kiev where an elected government was overthrown with force. It is certainly not in the United States where the executive branch has spent the entirety of the new 21st century establishing government above the law. Habeas corpus, due process, the right to open trials and determination of guilt by independent jurors prior to imprisonment and execution, the right to privacy have all been overturned by the Bush/Obama regimes. Torture is against US and international law; yet Washington set up torture prisons all over the globe.

How is it possible that the representative of the war criminal US government can stand before an European audience and speak of “rule of law,” “individual rights,” “human dignity,” “self-determination,” “freedom,” without the audience breaking out in laughter?

Washington is the government that invaded and destroyed Afghanistan and Iraq on the basis of lies. Washington is the government that financed and organized the overthrow of the Libyan and Honduran governments and that is currently attempting to do the same thing to Syria and Venezuela. Washington is the government that attacks with drones and bombs populations in the sovereign countries of Pakistan and Yemen. Washington is the government that has troops all over Africa. Washington is the government that has surrounded Russia, China, and Iran with military bases. It is this warmongering collection of Washington war criminals that now asserts that it is standing up for international ideals against Russia.

No one applauded Obama’s nonsensical speech. But for Europe to accept such blatant lies from a liar without protest empowers the momentum toward war that Washington is pushing.

Obama demands more NATO troops to be stationed in Eastern Europe to “contain Russia.” Obama said that a buildup of military forces on Russia’s borders would reassure Poland and the Baltic states that, as NATO members, they will be protected from Russian aggression. This nonsense is voiced by Obama despite the fact that no one expects Russia to invade Poland or the Baltic countries.

Obama doesn’t say what effect the US/NATO military buildup and numerous war games on Russia’s border will have on Russia. Will the Russian government conclude that Russia is about to be attacked and strike first? The reckless carelessness of Obama is the way wars start.

Declaring that “freedom isn’t free,” Obama is putting pressure on Western Europe to pony up more money for a military buildup to confront Russia.

The position of the government in Washington and its puppet states (Eastern and Western Europe, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Georgia, Japan) and other allies purchased with bagfuls of money is that Washington’s violation of international law by torturing people, by invading sovereign countries on totally false pretenses, by routinely overthrowing democratically elected governments that do not toe the Washington line is nothing but the “indispensable and exceptional country” bringing “freedom and democracy to the world.” But Russia’s acceptance of the self-determination of Crimean people to return to their home country is “a violation of international law.”

Just what international law has Washington and its puppets not violated?

Obama, whose government in the past few years has bullied Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Lebanon, Iran, Honduras, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Venezuela and is now trying to bully Russia, actually declared that “bigger nations can not simply bully smaller ones.” What does Obama and his speech writers think Washington has been doing for the entirety of the 21st century?

Who can possibly believe that Obama, whose government is responsible for the deaths of people every day in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, and Syria, cares a whit about democracy in Ukraine. Obama overthrew the Ukrainian government in order to be able to stuff the country into NATO, throw Russia out of its Black Sea naval base, and put US missile bases in Ukraine on Russia’s border. Obama is angry that his plan didn’t pan out as intended, and he is taking his anger and frustration out on Russia.

As the delusion takes hold in Washington that the US represents idealism standing firmly against Russian aggression, delusion enabled by the presstitute media, the UN General Assembly vote, and Washington’s string of puppet states, self-righteousness rises in Washington’s breast.

With rising self-righteousness will come more demands for punishing Russia, more demonization of Russia and Putin, more lies echoed by the presstitutes and puppets. Ukrainian violence against Russian residents is likely to intensify with the anti-Russian propaganda. Putin could be forced to send in Russian troops to defend Russians.

Why are people so blind that they do not see Obama driving the world to its final war?

Just as Obama dresses up his aggression toward Russia as idealism resisting selfish territorial ambitions, the English, French, and Americans presented their World War 1 “victory” as the triumph of idealism over German and Austrian imperialism and territorial ambitions. But at the Versailles Conference the Bolsheviks (the Tsar’s government failed to gain the Straits and instead lost the country to Lenin) “revealed the existence of the notorious Secret Treaties embodying as sordid a program of territorial pilfering as can be found in the history of diplomacy. It appears that the chief actual motives of the Entente in the World War were the seizure of Constantinople and the Straits for Russia; not only the return of Alsace-Lorraine to France, but the securing of the west bank of the Rhine, which would have involved the seizure of territory historically far longer connected with Germany than Alsace-Lorraine had ever been with France; the rewarding of Italian entry into the War by extensive territory grabbed away from Austria and the Jugo-Slavs; and the sequestering of the German imperial possessions, the acquisition of the German merchant marine and the destruction of the German navy in the interest of increasing the strength of the British Empire” (Barnes, pp. 691-692). The American share of the loot was seized German and Austrian investments in the US.

The secret British, Russian, and French aims of the war were hidden from the public, which was whipped up with fabricated propaganda to support a war whose outcomes were far different from the intentions of those who caused the war. People seem unable to learn from history. We are now witnessing the world again being led down the garden path by lies and propaganda, this time in behalf of American world hegemony.

I’ve got to say that each time Obama opens his mouth to say a bunch of ridiculous nonsense I can’t help but be reminded that lunatic McCain was his closest opposition for the job. 

At the end, this whole episode continues to seem like a big kabuki theatre, none of the players involved having any real appetite for a war (except the nutty Ukrainian & American fascists) and it’s served Putin well in his country, something a full on war would not do. 

This is not the WWIII you are looking for. And the East is certainly not better prepared than the West for a war.

Off the top of my head:

-china vs japan wargames

-russia vs. ukrainian fascists

-saudis + frenemies vs. iran in Syria

-iraq vs. itself

-israel vs. the world minus US & Canada


Meanwhile the core American allies..

-US-Canada-Mexico / UK-EU+a bunch of benchwarmers

All it would take is a strategic match in the East.

No mention of Israel?  This editorial is a good rant, but leaves stones unturned. 

Drowning in bankster-trafficked debt, still unwilling after momentous opportunities to wake up and admit they have been hoodwinked, Americans will channel their fury at the violent decline in their standard of living by endorsing the glib, simplistic narrative thrown at them.  History will repeat according to program. Another generation of naive young drones will throw their lives away in the service of banksters.  Or will they?  If a president gave a speech and nobody clapped, is it because some people stopped listening?

No clapping is the sound of Russians coming from the other direction.

Kiev is there for the taking. Controlling those natural gas pipelines would make Moscow rich beyond belief...and crush Western Europe's economy for a century. That could establish the ruble as a reserve currency as well...replacing the euro and quite possibly the dollar as well.

Well..World War I was a complex as World War II was this article does kinda gloss that part over a wee bit.

It is foolish sentiment to think that what we have here is not "intentional war" actually...having said that one would think such a thing impossible given US experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Instead we're looking at potentially the biggest conflict in world history.

My personal view remains that he longer this drags out the more the West will want to strike actually.
There is no diplomacy folks.
And this is not a drill.

What we're seeing is actually happening and Chancellor Merkel has stated that President Putin is "divorced from reality."

So the USA and Russia continue to circle each other like two wolves in each other's turf. The rest of the "pack" is now "congealing" around a common point of view. If that view becomes "threat to collective security" then the conditional reality of "war as inevitable" can suddenly sink in.

That could be "war everywhere" I might add. "And the most ever." I agree...not a record we should be trying to break.

So why oh why did Adolf Eichman -who should have known if anyone did, admit to killing at least 5 million Jews? You make a grave error when you let your hatred try to determine what happens/happened in reality.

 When Hausner produced evidence that Eichmann had stated in 1945 that "I will leap into my grave laughing because the feeling that I have five million human beings on my conscience is for me a source of extraordinary satisfaction", Eichmann said he meant "enemies of the Reich" such as the Soviets.[159] During later examination by the judges, he admitted he meant the Jews, and said the remark was an accurate reflection of his opinion at the time.[160] Wikipedia

Ah yes, the perpetual "6 million" Jews. Well, which "6 million"? Do you mean the first Jewish holocaust of "6 million" before, during, and after WWI(World War One)?

Or maybe Dwight D. Eisenhower, Charles De Gaulle, and Winston Churchill missed a little something, lol.

"Eisenhower's Crusade in Europe is a book of 559 pages; the six volumes of Churchill's Second World War total 4,448 pages; and De Gaulle's three-volume Mémoires de guerre is 2,054 pages. In this mass of writing, which altogether totals 7,061 pages (not including the introductory parts), published from 1948 to 1959, one will find no mention either of Nazi "gas chambers," a "genocide" of the Jews, or of "six million" Jewish victims of the war." 


Unless you would like to continue to believe the discredited(coercion, fabrications) Soviet laden kangaroo court "Nuremberg Trials", with a couple unsubstantiated coerced “confessions” under threat to self and family, and which were simply about general "war crimes", not holocausts, and that even an involved US Federal Court Justice, a prominent Jewish international law professor, US Congressmen, and many others who were directly involved, called a complete fraud.

Or perhaps you are refering to the actual 280,000 total of all people who died due to typhus, direct allied bombing, and later malnutrition and disease, while interned in the camps during WWII, as reported by the ICRC who had representatives in the camps since 1942?

The link to wikipedia about Harry Elmer Barnes was good.

Your conclusion/comment, not so good.

His book about the cause of WW I

was written long before Barnes became a Holocaust denier.

Seems that Barnes was mostly anti-war, and his blaming Jews and Bankers

would probably get a lot of support now.

Perhaps Barnes could be described as a more scholarly version of Henry Ford

and Ford's infamous anti-Jewish writings.

Being here you should be a curious mind, so I have one question : have you ever investigated the subject and the claims of the serious revisionists ? In a nutshell, they say that Jews were deported in concentration camps, as other populations, to work, and many died because of lack of food/epidemia that occured mainly when Germany collapsed. This is not to minimize the deportation and the sufferings of Jews, but at some point we should be able to look at events in a neutral way. Nuremberg court was not, and the revisionists have brought many good points (not a single document budgeting the operation, written orders, etc., technical procedures to operate a gaz chamber that are not in line with the testimonials, sometimes completely funky, etc., aerial pictures of Auschitz never showing the scenes described by witnesses, etc.) to refute that gaz chambers were used to mass kill Jews that this story is hardly believable now. The fact that, in many countries, you are simply not allowed to research in this area or that posting this message can lead to jail, conforts me in my opinion that the revisionists are probably closer to the truth thant the mainstream historians.

For all you deniers, here is my personal story.

My father was a South Georgia country boy who fought his way across France and Germany as a machine gunner with the 45th Infantry during WW2.  He was a part of the liberators of the concentration camp in Dachau.  He saw the bodies.  He saw the emaciated survivors.  He saw the gas chambers.  He saw the rail cars.  He talked and dealt with both the survivors and the locals.

This from Wikiepedia offers some description, very similar to his first person acccounts.  We talked about these things after my time in Viet Nam.

"Just before the soldiers entered the complex, they found thirty-nine railway boxcars containing some two-thousand skeletal corpses. Brain tissue was splattered on the ground from one victim found nearby with a crushed skull. The smell of decaying bodies and human excrement, and the sight of naked, emaciated bodies induced vomiting, crying, disbelief and rage.[14][15][16]

Upon moving deeper into the complex, and the prisoner area itself, more bodies were found. Some had been dead for hours and days before the camp's capture and lay where they had died. Soldiers reported seeing a row of cement structures that contained rooms full of hundreds of naked and barely clothed dead bodies piled floor to ceiling, a coal-fired crematorium and a gas chamber.[17] "The stench of death was overpowering."[18]

After the war, he returned home, married, and in 1947, I was born.  Times were tough in that part of the contry, and he decided to re-up.  In 1949, he was back in Germany....In Dachau again as a part of the reconstruction effort.  My mother and I joined him, and lived there until I was 5.  I have vague memories myself, and there were lifelong German friends my parents made from that area.

We cycled back to Germany for 2 more tours, and I visted Dachau serveral times at older ages.

Germans killed thousands of Jews in Dachau.

Some of the Holocaust deniers deny the use of gas chambers.

Many of the Holocaust deniers admit many Jews died or were killed, but

only deny the large number of six million,

prefering a much smaller number.

So, a "denier" can have more than one meaning or interpretation.

I have demonstrated in the comments before that there are few that understand the exponential function...even here amongst those whom need understand numbers, the Financialists.


While Zerohedge is a Financial Website the sad truth is that the few of those whom frequent this website will even be able to solve the simple Period-Interest Rate-Time Period function for either the Time Period or, more demanding, solve it for Interest Rate when given in the following form,


P = (1 + r)t,


(which is an exponential function).


The simple Algebra is far too demanding of many here.


Then to challenge them with Differentials or Derivatives,


such as evaluating dP/dt,


evaluating d2P/dt2 just cannot be expected from most.


This is a simple task as this is a simple model. But asking most to understand far more complex modeling when they fail to be able to understand simple modeling, is somewhat irrational if it is expected.


I am not writing this to dissuade you as I also feel it to be important to communicate this to as many whom can understand. But I am just giving you a clue that many just will not be able to grasp the concept presented.


Thus the understanding audience will be very small as a result as maybe 2% will get it.


With the massive distrust, and rightfully so as so many have been deceived by the "experts", there is no hope, whatsoever, that many will believe you.


That is the reason that there is no hope for humanity.


Civilization will fail as a direct result of the inability of most to think exponentially.

Unlike every other species of predator on the planet, we alone possess the ability to choose not to be one.

Ergo, war isn't necessarily a part of being human. Eternal vigilance, however, is necessary to stay at the apex regardless.

If the US gets a (hot, warm or cold) war going with Eurasia, there will be some rallying to the flag, but it will be nothing like the (near) unity that was seen within the naive US population of the 1910's and 1940's, driven by monopoly anglophile news media.  I don't believe you'll be seeing too many boys from fly-over country putting their lives on the line to make common cause with either members of the FSA, or the country's Davos-man leadership class.

With any luck at all, the USA could emerge from war in similar conditon to the Ottoman, Russian or Hapsburg empires:  in pieces.

I hope you're right about lacklustre enthusiasm for a big new war "August", but I think you're wrong. 

Woodrow Wilson was re-elected in 1916 on the slogan "he kept us out of the war", only to have the media ramp up the Lusitannia and other Hun atrocities and turn the country pro-war. 

In 1941 80% of Americans wanted to stay out of "Europe's War".  After Pearl Harbor anyone not pro-war was a traitor. 

Pre-9/11 there was no appetite for another Iraq war; post-9/11 there's an Afghan invasion, an Iraq invasion, naked scanners, take off your shoes, read your emails and shocking compliance.

If you think the people won't rally to some new demonization, then I admire your faith in humanity.

Hi Dochen,

I agree with you wholeheartedly.

However, I believe that in the early 1900's there were just one billion people on the planet. Currently, after 100 years, we are above 7 billion and approaching 8 billion by 2024~, based on which it will be impossible for anyone to control the outcome of any war.

I don't believe a world war would happen in this context.

It would be so complicated to end it, just like Iraq and Afghanistan after a decade, that there will be mass revolutions, massive food shortages and a complete collapse ala one of those Will Smith or Denzel Washington movies!

I was thinking more along the lines logistics, cannon fodder ratios, economic, resource and energy impact and the fact that a non-proxy shooting war involving the US would likely be an opportunity for whatever has been festering in the US to, well, manifest itself.

As far as "allies" are concerned, well, that remains to be seen.

So, in essence, I disagree, I do feel the East is better prepared and for reasons even the East might not fully recognize.

The east's history of suffering and low standards of livng leaves them better prepared, if nothing else.

I could see two things manifesting in the US. One, using war as a cover, would be the all-out activation of a fascist dicatorship, likely to the cheers of the left.

The other would be if a few choice targets were wiped out, reversion back to something closer to the articles of confederation and disempowerment at the federal level. I wouldn't want to live anywhere near certain classes of government facilities when this heats up, and ironically it wouldn't be military bases for the most part at risk.

I don't think anyone external to the US would even need to target financial centers. When this finally breaks, the US will gladly wipe out anything with financial records itself to cover up the crimes committed.

These two things aren't mutual exclusive, either.

There are degrees of conventional war, from limited war, to full scale war.

The leaders make the choice.

Unless there are automated Doomsday machines to unleash total nuclear war,

the use of all nuclear weapons in the world inventory,

a limited nuclear war would not absolutely create the extinction of the human species.

How many dozens of nuclear weapons have already been used or tested in the atmosphere in the past?

Presumably even the nuclear warriors would choose limits to a nuclear war.

Even religious zealots wish for their own religious compatriot's survival.

This is not to say that I am in favor of any nuclear war.

But there is a Doomsday machine. its the world's 440 Nuclear reactors and their Spent Fuel pools. Just a few of these spent fuel pools contains more highly radioactive material than all of the bombs in the world. When the Next World War happens, almost all of the reactors will meltdown and all of the spent fuel pools will catch fire killing all advanced life. The Reactors and the spent fuel pools need constant cooling and maintenance. In a nuclear war, the infrastructure, replacement parts, people all become inaccessible making it impossible to keep them cooled much beyond a week or two.

"automated doomsday machines".

Yep, Russia has "Perimeter" aka "Dead Hand".  It's semi-automatic though, because a fully automated system was drawn up and those "crazy commies" looked at it and said "this is crazy".  So, in a time of potential nuclear war, the switch is flipped and the system primed.  Any attack that meets certain conditions results in full release and that's the end.

Correct.  It's guerilla warfare from here on out.  Hit and run.  Conventional forces cannot "win" a war of occupation without cruelty in the extreme.  Once, such horror was only seen by the victims and perps, but now, it is instantly broadcast around the world, and not easily tolerated.  

Furthermore, if opposing enemy forces both have advanced weapons capabilities, massing a large army offers up a suicidal target to the enemy.

This war business is not as easy as it once was.

First he uses a character assassination on PCR.

When he does not get the desired result there he retorts to an ad hominum attack against the readers of the comments.


(I actually found that attack quite humorous as I have despised Rush Limbaugh ever since I have heard him spew his brand of hatred and propaganda. Futhermore Fox News as well as CNN and MSN BS, and See BS, just provides me with an urge to regurgitate as it is pure poison.)


His approach is an appeal to emotion without any regard for truth.


No he need not apologize as his tactics are Standard Operating Procedure for any troll.


So I guess it is silly to demand an apology. I will have to agree with you there.

Whatever.  Down vote me.  I am in total agreement with his assessment.  I read this article this morning at OPED.  I read him all the time.  He posts an article every few days.  All I am saying is that he can say what needs to be said without the namecalling.  It lends more credence to his arguments.

That's like Pelosi et al complaining about a lack of civility while gang raping the treasury and the constitution.

No Uncle Remus, It is about a citiaen that chooses to opt out of the mainstream media while still maintaining a critical view.  I want the facts.  I don't want editorials.  If I want someone else's opinion, I will ask for it.  I can make up my own mind.

But often, reality is not neutral. It's more neutral to call gangsters 'businessmen' but something vital is lost in the nice.

Great and when you ask (which is implied if you voluntarily read an opinion), take care you don't bitch about how they express their opinion.

OK.  I see your point.  Is it ok to be critical?  I mean, I know he publishes for free.  I am not ungrateful for his insight.  Actually some of his articles are full of facinating history that I have not theretofore been privy. Same with Professor Michel Chossudovsky.  I just think the message would more received if he didn't put the reader oh alert.  That was my only point.

Name calling is exactly what is needed. Otherwise you are handicapping the truth.

For example, POS Obama is a far more accurate description than President Obama.

Incendiary is what Paul Craig Roberts is arguing against. Incendiary is John McCain. Incendiary is accusing the Russians of aggression while the entire IMF/Fed Banker Establishment overthrows an elected government and implies Russia would attack countries such as Poland in order to foster a Ukrainian war.

That’s incendiary.

Reread Roberts’ article: Are not wars of aggression in Iraq and throughout the Middle East, the deaths of people every day in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Libya, Palestine and Syria, and military activity from drones to CIA operations and assassinations in countless other countries, incendiary? Would you have instead of Paul Craig Roberts’ description of these actions, that Arianna Huffington and AOL tell us what is really happening around the world?

At least from Arianna and AOL, you won’t get incendiary use of the language against the American/Israeli Empire, just lies and cover-up.

And, by the way, we have lost our beloved country to the rule of tyrants. And in my view there is no language strong enough to alert Americans to this fact.

No. My only point is that he can say what needs to be said without the namecalling.  It is not necessary.  I get it.  Anyone who reads him has been deeply involved in alternative media, for years.

The main name Roberts seems to be calling is Barack Obama. And with so many truthful accusations lodged by Roberts against the president, a naive observer might wonder why Obama is doing all this - why this one man is creating the conditions leading to a world war? The reason, of course, is the name-calling Paul Craig Roberts has not done here in this article. Those are the names of the owners of the Federal Reserve Bank because it is those international figures who put Obama in office and for whom he works. 

In other words, there ain't enough name calling.

OK.  But he is couching it in the terms that Obama is the "Leader of the Free World" and certainly after all this time you DO (I hope) realize that he is just a puppet.  The State Department and the CIA is still on the same rampage it was a decade ago.  It is like you have no awareness of the Deep State, the "Secret Government".  You think this man is running the whole deal....right???  OK.  Whatever.  These things can be discussed but they are not.  These alternative "authors" only touch upon the periphery of the issues that this Country faces.  It is balderdash!!!  There are very few alternative journalists that reach into this area.  The ones that do go all crazy on the Illuminati and Child Sacrifice and crazy crap.  Who is the one that faces this issue head on and without the hyperbole??  You tell me.

Obama is doing the Puppetmaster bidding. But as he is the "figurehead" then the criticism delivered to Obama is the criticism well deserved as...HE IS DOING THE BIDDING.


"I was just following orders" was not a valid defense at Nuremberg and is not a valid defense today. There is this concept is right...PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.


It does not matter that he is just following orders. Good attempt at a deflection of responsibility there. Too bad it just does not have wings.

I recognize you.  You are one of the many over at GLP that like to call black people the N word.  Except over there you get away with it.  You mongoloid.  You are so ignorant and insignificant.  I only drove by to tell you that.

I have no interest in people who call certain people the 'N word' as you put it however, do you consider yourself a hypocrite for then calling this poster a Mongoloid?

You're just a fucking pussy. 

Nothing wrong with calling people names if they deserve it - whether it be nigger, redneck, queer, traitor, cunt or whatever else. 

Grow up, be a man and get the sand out of your vagina.

What in the hell is this GLP to which you refer?


Maybe I will go there and shred the deserving. But your attacking of the undeserving here does not earn you any respect.


Seriously. What in the hell are you writing about? Why are you bringing your bullshit here?

Really, there is not a zerohedge op that I peruse that doesn't have the same old tired stupid ass comments.  It was funny the first and second and maybe even third times...Now it is just stale.  You really need to grasp for some new material.  There are several real funny hedgers.  You are just not one of them.
