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.

Yeah, that would be a great day when the central nervous system of our country is destroyed.
Who's going to survive that with a smile on their face? Seriously?
Your kids will starve and you are smug about that scenario?

ZH has has really, really gone downhill...

The Empire is already over extended.  If we are overextended now what happens when somebody who can actually fights back?  And obviously our funded mercs ISIS haven't been....  NK, Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, Afghanistan, Taiwan, Yemen, Somalia...  Now they want to add China, Russia and Iran?  This paper tiger is going to collapse.  If somebody sinks our battleships or any subs all they can do is lob nukes.  Our planes could be kept busy.  Look at the sizes of some of these armies.  You could shoot North Koreans and Chinese all day and they would never stop coming.  This is Rome.  They are bluffing and hoping everybody ducks scared, that or trying to get us all killed.  Right now they are projecting strength hard and if they get seriously challenged we are probably screwed.  We have already been humiliated in Syria.

It's Rome.

my thoughts is that last century's nukes are big ponderous dinosaurs that wont get 5000 feet before the new and improved anti missiles kill them. or the satellites.. I have no doubt that all the land based ICBMs are worthless.

Maybe we could get a few through from our subs but that too is speculation..

Years ago my brother was in the navy and his job was to fly around in an awacs type plane and intercept and decode Russian messages and he told me that one of the messages he decoded was the locations of every Trident in our fleet.

It seems like bullies always go down the same way. They rule by intimidation and then when they get challenged and eventually wounded everybody sees that they are weak and can/should be beaten. They then get throttled because there is blood in the water.  We don't seem to far off from that.

the people of this nation are soft. complete generations have never witnessed hot water not flowing from the facet on demand. Take just THIS luxury away, not to mention their cell phones, and watch the fireworks.

yes we resemble Rome to a tee.

No country ever comitted crimes against God  and managed to hold on to the position of power.

Does anyone have kind or respectful thoughts about those criminal societies of yesteryear, Rome, Berlin, London, Paris, Lisbon?

In the America's the Aztecs and Incas are no more.

In the not too distant future the USA will be humbled and shown what happens when those spiritual laws are broken.  To my knowledge, most secular countries and almost every religion considers murder as one of the most serious crimes humans can commit.  Even in the USA, murder is not acceptable, unless you are part of .gov.  Why do you think soldiers get PTSD?  Fear and guilt.  Just because the 'boss' says it is ok to go out there and pull the trigger on innocents, the solder still has to live with his or her conscience after the fact.  It they have no conscience left, they are lost.

I am not religeous, but not fool enough to think we are placed on this planet for the sole purpose of existence and procreation with no other reason for being, otherwise why give us intelligence, conscience, love and hate to deal with?

"Just because the 'boss' says it is ok to go out there and pull the trigger on innocents, the solder still has to live with his or her conscience after the fact."

 

That is why they are trying to deal directly with your brain cells, to tell them it is all ok if your boss says so.

America is Rome. Modeled after the old Rome including political/legal structure, architecture and symbols. New Rome same as the old Rome except the weaponry is more powerful.

You mean a different fool.

A fool opposite to your own foolishness.  You're the fool, who actually thinks that mankind,

the inhabititants of our only world, can and will stop the raging Machine unfolding before us.

The Deep State as it is cutely called.  '1984' coming home to roost.  The New World Order.

The Fortress of Ultimate Darkness.  Formerly known as, "The last, best hope of man."

 

Res ipsa Loquitor.

Paul Craig Roberts hasn't lost the plot.  Your denial and wishful thinking has kept you from ever knowing

what that plot was.  A couple of lines out of the Bible.

 

VENGANCE IS MINE, SAITH THE LORD.  I SHALL REPAY.

IN DUE TIME THEIR FOOT WILL SLIP, THEIR DAY OF DISATER

IS NEAR AND THEIR DOOM RUSHES UPON THEM.

 

 And in your denial, you know that there will be a Hollywood ending.

Custer will arrive with the Cavalry and the diseased blankets and

chase all these boogymen away.  And the real fools will ascend.

 

I'm afraid you're fool of this piece, jm.

You're related to Sarah Silverman I presume. That sort of imagery sets her off too.

>>> Washington is a collection of morons, people stupid below the meaning of stupid.

All fifty states keep sending these morons to Washington with wanton regularity - where these far-flung dipshits concentrate and parade their worst traits.

Yo,  all you other states, districts, and counties: Stop sending your morons to Washington!

Or were you not talking about the People's representatives who come from . . . you know . . . places outside Washington?

I have always figured that if America was a person, and was sent to a psychiatrist, they would be suffering from schizophrenic, paranoid, borderline narcissistic personality disorder. The kind of person you don't want anything to do with, and who has no idea they are even ill, or what they are doing to the people around them.

If the author of this stupid text mastered the language he is writing in, he might have eliminated most of the 21 "morons". There are other adjectives for "stupid persons”, that can be used. 

Not strange that "It Has Become Embarrassing To Be An American", now that they can't even communicate correctly in their own language anymore.

that would have weakened it. made it effete.  Plus have you noticed the audience and purpose.
