Paul Craig Roberts Asks "Is That Armageddon Over The Horizon?"

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

The insouciance of the Western world is extraordinary.

It is not only Americans who permit themselves to be brainwashed by CNN, MSNBC, NPR, the New York Times and Washington Post, but also their counterparts in Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan, who rely on the war propaganda machine that poses as a media.

The Western “leaders,” that is, the puppets on the end of the strings pulled by the powerful private interest groups and the Deep State, are just as insouciant.

Trump and his counterparts in the American Empire must be unaware that they are provoking war with Russia and China, or else they are psychopaths.

A new White House Fool has replaced the old fool. The New Fool has sent his Secretary of State to Russia. For what? To deliver an ultimatum? To make more false accusations? To apologize for the lies?

Consider the audacity of Secretary of State Tillerson. He has spent the week prior to his visit to Moscow supporting incredible lies and false allegations that Assad of Syria used chemical weapons with Russia’s permission, which justified Washington’s unambigious war crime of a military attack on a country with which the US has not declared war. Less than 100 days in office, and Trump is already a war criminal along with the rest of his warmonger government.

The entire world knows this, but no one says it. Instead, Tillerson, who has been heavy with lies and threats has the confidence to go to Moscow to tell the Russians that they have to hand over Assad to the American Uni-Power.

Tillerson’s mission demonstrates the complete, total unreality of the world in which Washington lives. Try to imagine Tillerson’s arrogance. If you had been bad-mouthing and threatening strong, important people, would you feel comfortable going over to their house to have dinner with them? Does Tillerson think that now that Russia has largely freed Syrtia of US-supported ISIS, Russia is going to turn Syria over to Washington?

Is he going to tell Lavrov that he didn’t really mean all those nasty lies he told about Russia, but the zionist neoconservatives made him do it? That he is not really in charge, just a tool of the Anglo-Zionist Empire?

Is Tillerson going to apologize for White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s statement that Assad, Russia’s ally, is more evil than Hitler? 

Maybe Tillerson is going to ask for asylum and get on the winning side.

Stephen Cohen, one of the few remaining Americans knowledgeable about Russia, told the two CNN presstitutes and the warmonger Col. Leighton, one of the “experts” that the presstitutes roll out to pronounce the propaganda against Russia, that Russia was preparing for hot war. It seems to have gone over the heads of the CNN presstitutes and colonel. Whose payroll are they on?

The Russian leaders, who, unlike the Western liars, speak the truth, have said clearly that Russia will never again fight a war on her own territory. The Russians couldn’t put it more clearly. Provoke a war, and we will destroy you on your own territory.

When you watch the president and government in Washington, the European governments, especially the idiots in London, the Canadian and Australian governments, you can only marvel at the total stupidity of “Western leadership.” They are begging for the end of the world.

And the presstitutes are at work driving toward the end of life. Huge numbers of Western peoples are being prepared for their demise, and they are protected from the realization by their insouciance.

Washington is so arrogant and lost in its own hubris, that Washington does not understand that the years of clear as crystal lies about Russia and Russian intentions and deeds have convinced Russia that Washington is preparing the populations of the United States and Washington’s captive peoples in West and East Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan for a US pre-emptive nuclear strike against Russia. Published US war plans against China have convinced China of the same.

If not for war, what else is the change in US war doctrine for? George W. Bush abandoned the stabilizing role of nuclear weapons by moving them from a retaliatory function to a nuclear first strike. Then he pulled out of the anti-ballistic missile treaty concluded by President Richard Nixon. Now we have US missile sites positioned on Russia’s borders. We tell the Russians the lie that the missiles are to prevent an Iranian nuclear ICBM strike against Europe. This lie is told, and accepted by the puppets in Europe, despite the known, incontestable fact that Iran has neither nukes nor ICBMs. But the Russians do not accept it. They know it is another Washington lie.

When Russia hears these flagrant, blatant, obvious lies, Russia understands that Washington intends a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia.

China has reached the same conclusion.

So, here is the situation. Two countries with nuclear forces expect that the insane fools who rule the West are going to attack them with nuclear weapons. What are Russia and China doing? Are they begging for mercy?

No. They are preparing to destroy the evil West, a collection of liars and war criminals, the like of which the world has never previously experienced.

It is the US, the washed-up joke of a “uni-power” that after 16 years is still unable to defeat a few thousand lightly armed Taliban in Afghanistan, that needs to ask for mercy.

The reckless and irresponsible war talk in the US government and presstitute media and among NATO and Washington’s vassals must stop immediately. Life is in the balance.

Putin has shown amazing patience with Washington’s lies and provocations, but he cannot risk Russia by trusting Washington, whom no one can trust. Not the American people, not the Russian people, not any people.

By jumping on the Deep State’s propaganda wagon the liberal/progressive/left is complicit in the march toward Armageddon.

In a sense, he has to be concerned. The US's warmongering has been going on for quite sometime. WW3 is the logical conclusion.

There is no profit in victory.

Same as "curing" cancer or diabetes.

That being said...the US is magnitudes more powerful than the next five COMBINED! All of these excursions have been with one hand tied to a leg. The last time the gloves really came off was Gulf 1 with Schartzkof. Annihlated the 4 largest army in 48 hours, without losing one tank. Oh, btw...that was Russian tech. I'm suuuuuure the Chinese stuff is better...oh dear god...I've worked on their shit.
I'm not Rah rahing, or warmongering.....but the US is not even close to losing its OVERWHELMING superiority. And Russia and China fucking know it in spades.

Not quite Russian. It was Soviet tech from the 1970s and operated by people who trained for a much different adversery.

Russia has the nuclear arms enough to annihilate the USA, but the USA has the arms to annihilate Russia two or three times over.

Great! They can kill us all but we can kill them all two or three times over!

And how many wars has the US actually won with this supposed "overwhelming" supriority? Zip, zilch, nada. Not one. I'm not beating you over the head with reality or anything but what you consider overwhelming might in fact be bloat and/or a ball and chain around your neck. In a world where a single missile can defeat 500 billion dollars worth of Ford class aircraft carrier strike group the size argument reduces to zero.

Bunch of sorry assed, self hating pansies here anymore. This might as well be Mother Jones or Bill Maher's web page.

It's good to be king. We have all benefited from US hegemony.

But you snowflakes are content to sit around and wait until the guy who keeps stating publicly that he is going to kill finally do it.
Threaten me or my family....I'm coming for you, on your ground. Only a pussified stupid asshole doesn't react to that kind of threat. Or call 911! Haha!

Embrace this's who we are. It's king of the hill for real. Just because you pussys don't want to play...doesn't mean it stops.
Or move to Canada....where you can revel in you irrelevant life.

By the way...Canada,Mexico and the rest of the're fucking welcome. You have been living a life under our protection for over a hundred years. So I don't see any need to listen to any of their shit either....or pick up a rifle, and walk the line.

You fucking people.

NoPension, you must be too young to remember the facts about the first Gulf war.  Those tanks were Russian technology that's true, but they were old WWII technology that the Russians had already quit using.  They weren't much more useful than terrorists with toyota pickups which we have not been able to defeat.

yeah and after 16 years, and the "war on terror" is going exactly as planned.

The battle of Armageddon refers to the final war between human governments and God. These governments and their supporters oppose God even now by refusing to submit to his rulership. (Psalm 2:2) The battle of Armageddon will bring human rulership to an end.Daniel 2:44.

I think you're probably a millennial type. Left wing snowflake? Sounds about right.

not even close.

snowflakes have no idea what OT is or a shifted tour, which puts you closer to them than me.

Russia and China are not quite ready to take on the US, they need about 2 to 3 years. Its a bit early in terms of military tech and gold tonnage. But they are damn close. If we fuck this up and are in war before June we may have very serious problems. We are 1.5 months from running out of cash and the debt ceiling needs raised. How high will rates push if we are at war and need the usual suspect UST investors? Financially speaking, this is the perfect time for China and Russia to drop the financial nuke on the US. And if we are in a serious war of any kind at that time, we will have problems. Serious problems.

Fool, it's never a "good time", because our space age tech is moving faster than theirs. 

HAARP, AI networks, AI on Mil satellites, DARPA tech, Area 51 tech, self-organizing drone swarms, super-soldier tech and biotech, lasers, rail guns, satellite tech to destroy rockets at launch, Rod of God...

All designed to work in concert, to take out the enemy Command, Control, Communication and Intelligence (IC^3) - to decapitate them before they can do the same to us. 

It's about taking them down with minimal LONG term damage, to allow for new leadership and ownership to take over for a One World Government. Ideally that would involve regime change, where their Oligarchs collaborate / collude with ours, and hail in the new Order of Corporate Feudalism. No Apocalyptic Doomsday is required.
