Paul Craig Roberts: "It Has Become Embarrassing To Be An American"

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

It has become embarrassing to be an American. Our country has had four war criminal presidents in succession. Clinton twice launched military attacks on Serbia, ordering NATO to bomb the former Yugoslavia twice, both in 1995 and in 1999, so that gives Bill two war crimes. George W. Bush invaded Afghanistan and Iraq and attacked provinces of Pakistan and Yemen from the air. That comes to four war crimes for Bush. Obama used NATO to destroy Libya and sent mercenaries to destroy Syria, thereby commiting two war crimes. Trump attacked Syria with US forces, thereby becoming a war criminal early in his regime.

To the extent that the UN participated in these war crimes along with Washington’s European, Canadian and Australian vassals, all are guilty of war crimes. Perhaps the UN itself should be arraigned before the War Crimes Tribunal along with the EU, US, Australia and Canada.

Quite a record. Western Civilization, if civilization it is, is the greatest committer of war crimes in human history.

And there are other crimes—Somalia, and Obama’s coups against Honduras and Ukraine and Washington’s ongoing attempts to overthrow the governments of Venezuela, Ecuador, and Bolivia. Washington wants to overthrow Ecuador in order to grab and torture Julian Assange, the world’s leading democrat.

These war crimes committed by four US presidents caused millions of civilian deaths and injuries and dispossessed and dislocated millions of peoples, who have now arrived as refugees in Europe, UK, US, Canada, and Australia, bringing their problems with them, some of which become problerms for Europeans, such as gang rapes.

What is the reason for all the death and destruction and the flooding of the West with refugees from the West’s naked violence? We don’t know. We are told lies: Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction,” which the US government knew for an absolute fact did not exist. “Assad’s use of chemical weapons,” an obvious, blatant lie. “Iranian nukes,” another blatant lie. The lies about Gaddafi in Libya are so absurd that it is pointless to repeat them.

What were the lies used to justify bombing tribesmen in Pakistan, to bomb a new government in Yemen? No American knows or cares. Why the US violence against Somalia? Again, no Americans knows or cares. Or the morons saw a movie.

Violence for its own sake. That is what America has become.

Indeed, violence is what America is. There is nothing else there. Violence is the heart of America.

Consider not only the bombings and destruction of countries, but also the endless gratuitous, outrageous police violence against US citizens. If anyone should be disarmed, it is the US police. The police commit more “gun violence” than anyone else, and unlike drug gangs fighting one another for territory, police violence has no other reason than the love of committing violence against other humans. The American police even shoot down 12-year old American kids prior to asking any question, especially if they are black.

Violence is America. America is violence. The moronic liberals blame it on gun owners, but it is always the government that is the source of violence. That is the reason our Founding Fathers gave us the Second Amendment. It is not gun owners who have destroyed in whole or part eight countries. It is the armed-at-taxpayer-expense US government that commits the violence.

America’s lust for violence is now bringing the Washington morons up against people who can commit violence back: the Russians and Chinese, Iran and North Korea.

Beginning with the Clinton moron every US government has broken or withdrawn from agreements with Russia, agreements that were made in order to reduce tensions and the risk of thermo-nuclear war. Washington initially covered its aggressive steps toward Russia with lies, such as ABM missile sites on Russia’s border are there to protect Europe from (non-existent) Iranian nuclear ICBMs.

The Obama regime still told lies but escalated to false charges against Russia and Russia’s president in order to build tensions between nuclear powers, the antithesis of Ronald Reagan’s policy. Yet moronic liberals love Obama and hate Reagan.

Did you know that Russia is so powerful and the NSA and CIA so weak and helpless that Russia can determine the outcome of US elections? You must know this, because this is all you have heard from the utterly corrupt Democratic Party, the CIA, the FBI, the Amerian whore media, and the morons who listen to CNN, MSNBC, NPR or read the New York Times and Washington Post.

Surely you have heard at least one thousand times that Russia invaded Ukraine; yet Washington’s puppet still sits in Kiev. One doesn’t have to have an IQ above 90 to understand that if Russia invaded Ukraine, Ukraine would not still be there.

Did you know that the president of Russia, which world polls show is the most respected leader in the world, is, according to Hillary Clinton “the new Hitler”?

Did you know that the most respected leader in the world, Vladimir Putin, is a Mafia don, a thug, a tarantula at the center of a spy web, according to members of the US government who are so stupid that they cannot even spell their own names?

Did you know that Putin, who has refrained from responding aggressively to US provocations, not out of fear, but out of respect for human life, is said to be hellbent on reconstructing the Soviet Empire? Yet, when Putin sent a Russian force against the US and Israeli trained and supplied Georgian army that Washington sent to attack South Ossetia, the Russian Army conquered Georgia in five hours; yet withdrew after teaching the morons the lesson. If Putin wanted to reconstruct the Russian Empire, why didn’t he keep Georgia, a Russian province for 300 years prior to Washington’s breakup of the Russian Empire when the Soviet Union collapsed? Washington was powerless to do anything had Putin declared Georgia to be again part of Russia.

And now we have the embarrassment of Trump’s CIA director, Mike Pompeo, possibly the most stupid person in America. Here we have a moron of the lowest grade. I am not sure there is any IQ there at all. Possibly it reads zero.

This moron, if he qualifies to that level, which I doubt, has accused Julian Assange, the world’s Premier Journalist, the person who more than anyone represents the First Amendment of the US Constitution, of being a demon who sides with dictators and endangers the security of American hegemony with the help of Russia. All because Wilileaks publishes material from official sources revealing the criminal behavior of the US government. Wikileaks doesn’t steal the documents. The documents are leaked to Wikileaks by whistleblowers who cannot tolerate the immorality and lies of the US government.

Anyone who tells the truth is by definition against the United States of America. And the moron Pompeo intends to get them.

When I first read Pompeo’s accusation against Assange, I thought it had to be a joke. The CIA director wants to revoke the First Amendment. But the moron Pompeo actually said it. https://www.rt.com/usa/384667-cia-assange-wikileaks-critisize/

What are we to do, what is the world to do, when we have utter morons as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, as President of the US, as National Security Adviser, as Secretary of Defense, as Secretary of State, as US Ambassador to the UN, as editors of the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, NPR, MSNBC? How can there be any intelligence when only morons are in charge?

Stupid is as stupid does. The Chinese government has said that the moronic Americans could attack North Korea at any moment. A large US fleet is heading to North Korea. North Korea apparently now has nuclear weapons. One North Korean nuclear weapon can wipe out the entirety of the US fleet. Why is Washington inviting this outcome? The only possible answer is moronic stupidity.

North Korea is not bothering anyone. Why is Washington picking on North Korea? Does Washington want war with China? In which case, is Washinton kissing off the West Coast of the US? Why does the West Coast support policies that imply the demise of the West Coast of the US? Do the morons on the West Coast think that the US can initiate war with China, or North Korea, without any consequesnces to the West Coast? Are even Amerians this utterly stupid?

China or Russia individually can wipe out the US. Together they can make North America uninhabitalbe until the end of time. Why are the Washington morons provoking powerful nuclear powers? Do the Washington morons think Russia and China will submit to threats?

The answer is: Washington is a collection of morons, people stupid below the meaning of stupid. People so far outside of reality that they imagine that their hubris and arrogance elevates them above reality.

When the first Satan 2 hits Washington, the greatest collection of morons in the world will cease to exist.

The world will breathe a huge sigh of relief.

Bring it on! Come on morons, eliminate yourselves! The rest of us cannot wait.

I hope PCR hasn’t just figured that out.

On second thought, he has more than likely felt that way for a number of years now.

I have.

Western Civilization is being wagged by a bunch of ZIONIST-NEOCON psychopaths, the real destroyers of the world, who hate Christian Western CIVILIZATION.

*Who Are The Neoconservatives?*

"The neoconservative movement, which is generally perceived as a radical (rather than “conservative”) Republican right, is, in reality, an intellectual movement born in the late 1960s in the pages of the monthly magazine Commentary, a media arm of the 'American Jewish Committee', which had replaced the *Contemporary Jewish Record * in 1945.

The Forward, the oldest American Jewish weekly, wrote in a January 6th, 2006 article signed Gal Beckerman: 'If there is an intellectual movement in America to whose invention Jews can lay sole claim, neoconservatism is it. It’s a thought one imagines most American Jews, overwhelmingly liberal, will find horrifying. And yet it is a fact that as a political philosophy, neoconservatism was born among the children of Jewish immigrants and is now largely the intellectual domain of those immigrants’ grandchildren'.

The neoconservative apologist Murray Friedman explains that Jewish dominance within his movement by the inherent benevolence of Judaism, “the idea that Jews have been put on earth to make it a better, perhaps even a holy, place” (The Neoconservative Revolution: Jewish Intellectuals and the Shaping of Public Policy, 2006)......."

PCR, you forgot to mention the republican party. hopefully you see it as a two party tyranny.

80 million deer hunters, gun totters surely could get the job done. NOT! it is too late.

fear of police state has the majority thinking the come knocking with jack boots will be the crazy ass neighbor with the trump sign in his front yard. NOT AGAIN...

oh and there is that nagging issue 911.

emp attack would seal the deal.

The entire system is out of whack! Not because the constitution is flawed but because the psychopaths have gained control of the sleeping pussies. Every one that has a pot to piss in doesn't want to risk anything. Therefore the nation crumbles right before their eyes. In my lifetime there have only been a few in positions of power that were honest and truthful and they were mocked and ridiculed by everyone. It is a sad state that this nation is in. Trump is just the synthesis of the " thesis- antithesis- synthesis!  America has been dead my entire life. Even as a young boy trying to ride my dirt bike to the trails faced with the fear of cops trying to ticket me for the short trip down the road I knew then this was not freedom!

The psychopaths have won and you pussies will soon have no pot to piss in!

PCR has the southern gentleman's understanding of the grip of New England Puritan arrogance and hypocrisy on this nation. When you think you are 'the shining city on the hill' you can do no wrong. You think you're bringing 'democracy' to the world and G-d has 'shed his grace on thee'. This is an old problem & leading Americans wrote & spoke on it, including Thomas Jefferson.

While middle class Americans suffer, DC politicans line thier pockets with Loot and fail to be responsible leaders.

Well, there's patriotic idealism and there's the deep state wannabee self-sustaining class who, at our unauthorized expense would push their far-reaching agendae... Unleashed, evil rules, badly and bigly. Box, bottle, and bag the evil-doers, and bury them deeply, quickly; they shall surely do themselves in by their own methods. Live by the sword, die by the sword -- or whatever the method of choice. By G-d!

I thought it was a great Op Ed article. I wish it would be published in the 50 largest newpapers in the country. He forgot the head devil, GHW Bush. His little sortie into Iraq with Colin Powell and Stormin Norman killed how many Iraqi's? 50,000 or maybe 80,000. Karma is a real bitch as the US is about to find out. 

PCR, keep up the good work.

I was banned from "Crooks and Liars" for speaking the truth.  We need that here to discourage the trolls.

flaminratzazz's picture

but what happens when you get banned from here for speaking the truth because some mod is having a bad day and you just pissed him off? you come from a site that banned you and you want to set up the same thing here.. just like a liberal fleeing from california to fvkup oregon.

the biggest shock is when people find out the mods don't think exactly like you and then you have to change the way you think..or else.

fvk the mods, i don't need to be jammed into a box again.. Zero hedge all ready tried that and it was a disaster. we lost a lot of great members.

PCR just listed it all out in one place. It is an embarrassment and very painful because there are a lot of good, honest people still working hard every day.

I don't think there is a national conscience.

The USA has consumers not citizens except for a small minority .

We are seeing - what PCR calls "morons" - but the reality is that they are recruited for their acceptance of whatever the mime is of the moment

Tillerson is an engineer by education and training and has a storehouse of organizational training - he has been educated at his late age to accept - he is not chosen as voice of reason for wise counsel but as a parrot

Thinking about solutions is not the job of anyone in this morass

Kissinger / George Kennan were crafting solutions even when misguided

No one on board in the last 25 years could shine their shoes

The powers that be want population reduction forced so they will keep pushing until they get it from their slaves in place

That's your response to the fact that Trump and his three predecessors are guilty of war crimes? WAR CRIMES? You are a doofus.

You're a doofus for repeating that FAKE NEWS NARRATIVE ABOUT WAR CRIMES.

 

Not only a doofus but from my POV the posters repeating news media propaganda are probably being paid to do it.

Reagan pushed nuns out of helicopters in Nicaragua, but PCRs gives him a pass.
