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.

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.

An angry rant, short on information, long on senility induced rage. This moron is calling for a bomb to drop on DC? You know 99% of the people living in DC are just regular people living their lives right? This article is a disgrace, I think PCR needs his meds adjusted.

Maestro Maestro's picture

Not only Mr. Roberts.  The entire human race is calling for that.

brushhog's picture

You're calling for innocent people to be killed by bombs? You're a coward, and a murderer. When are you going on your killing spree, nutjob?

Maestro Maestro's picture

Let's see...

Americans mass torture and mass murder in the name of their freedom to mass torture and mass murder human beings, and us human beings are supposed to think that mass torturing and mass murdering Americans are innocent people AND human beings, to boot?

Especially knowing that America is a democracy and you Americans (i.e., NOT human beings) vote for Democrats and/or Republicans every time?  Meaning, you Americans in your overwhelming majority support and practice mass torture and mass murder?

FYI, I support PEACEABLE GENOCIDE as a solution to the American problem.  You agree to voluntary non-violent mass sterilization by having your tubes tied etc. and you get to end your days in peace and save the human race and the planet from nuclear annihilation in the process.

Americans are simply not compatible with life on planet earth.

Why don't you leave Europe?  You've only been conducting terror and false-flag operations in Europe.  How many European political leaders did you Americans assassinate?

Murder is not protection, asshat American.

Putin is the worlds most "respected leader"?? LOL. He murders his political opposition. Anyone who believes that Putin is any better than the scum in any other government is the moron.

Guy is blaming pimples for a bad case of acne, but acne has a deeper root and pimples are only the manifestation of that root. This rant against All Things American is just picking at pimples. As long as the root of the problem is not in any way addressed, the rant has ZERO merit and is actually blaming the symptoms for the disease. Could he not at least have had the intellectual honesty to ask who or what is directing U.S. politicians to adopt such a consistently violent approach to world engagement? There is only finger-pointing but no attempt to even ask let alone answer "why". Where there is no intellectual honesty, there is only propaganda.

Well, there are many good, honest and hard working people in the US, just as anywhere else. So "Americans" or "Europeans" and all these terms do rarely capture the individuals and their personal realities; at best they are a statistical means of some "average joe" that may actually not even exist as such. Truth be told, truth is no longer allowed by our global elites that just porpagate self-serving scams all over the world. The old receipes don't work anymore torwards the end of the credit cycle; some sort of reckoning is ultimately unavoidable. But when, how, and with or without a global nuclear holocaust ???

History is replete will all-powerful, internally unopposed and indestructible empires: Roman, Ottoman and Soviet are some examples. At the end, they all collapsed. Similar fate awaits the American empire, too. That is when ideas about how do it differently will gain value and acceptance. Blaming, name calling and rage might make you feel better but will have no other result. So grab a beer or smoke a doobie or watch TV sitcoms for now. Wait for the collapse and then be ready to act.

PCR was Asst Secretary of the US Treasury and co-editor of the WSJ. When he started writing the truth, he was cut-off from all mainstream media. Too bad his writings don't get greater visibility. He could help stop the downward path of the US and make America great again. He is a true patriot.

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."  II Tim 3:1-7

It's a US problem and one that bleeds over elsewhere too, people can't tell the difference anymore between virtual and real world values.  I wrote about it the first time in 2013 with what I was watching and reading.  We can thank artificial intelligence, which is really just a bunch of new algorithms out there, for a lot of this as people suck it in all the time, look at Facebook, the best manipulative set of algorithms ever created, and the dupes continue to value it and hang out there.  Same problem exists with out leaders too, they are in the barrel too and that is scary.  Look at the White House using Facebook for videos and weekly messages, what's up with that?  You can probably guess I'm not a member on Facebook as I used to write code and know how manipulative computer code can be on behavior, and let's face it, if Facebook went away tomorrow, everyone will still live on.  It's a choice of allowing oneself to be duped by their a cult I guess.

I've had some one-on-one's with PCR, he is a big time proponent of disarmament and big time opponent of Civil Defense.

Both will get a lot more Americans killed.

Take care now.

I was somewhat with him till PCR said North Korea isn't bothering anybody.  OMG.  So it's a prison camp building nukes that will never be used or sold?   North Korea should have been dealt with 20 years ago.

You really should read up on the Korean situation before making a comment on it.... you do realize that it was us that separated the country? using the usual 'divide and conquer' tactis and its fascist/communist/psychopath helpers among the Korean population?.... this is the same routine we always use.... read "An Economic Hitman"... just read something so you don't so silly as most uniformed Americans do these days... We weren't always so stupid... as Bush Jr, said.... "It's hard work."... Would Bernays be proud? or would he care about the results of his work over the decades?  It isn't just America... it's the same game every time in every empire, it's just our turn at the helm... but not to worry, we have our Zionists buddies assisting so faithfully... as they always do... practicing their 'good neighbor' policy.... seeing us as saps to con.... but then that is their chosen role on stage.... one honed after many eons of practice... which is why they have the rep they have... and they wage a constant battle against the truth, same as all their neo-con friends.. .those other 'chosen people'... those that want their version of an NWO.... just imagine what it'll be like when all of them and their psycho/pedo friends get to come out of the closet and play.... just imagine, you haven't seen anything yet.

Who died and made you king of th world?

Why do YOU get to decide who gets dealt with and why?

Why is America, the only country to even use nuclear weapons, the only country allowed to have them?


Hypocracy perhaps?
