Paul Craig Roberts Rages “Washington Is Leading The World To War”

Authored by Paul Criag Roberts,

What must the world think watching the US presidential campaign? Over time US political campaigns have become more unreal and less related to voters’ concerns, but the current one is so unreal as to be absurd.

The offshoring of American jobs by global corporations and the deregulation of the US financial system have resulted in American economic failure. One might think that this would be an issue in a presidential campaign.

The neoconservative ideology of US world hegemony is driving the US and its vassals into conflict with Russia and China. The risks of nuclear war are higher than at any previous time in history. One might think that this also would be an issue in a presidential campaign.

Instead, the issues are Trump’s legal use of tax laws and his non-hostile attitude toward President Putin of Russia.

One might think that the issue would be Hillary’s extremely hostile attitude toward Putin (“the new Hitler”), which promises conflict with a major nuclear power.

As for benefitting from tax laws, Pat Buchanan pointed out that Hillary used to her benefit a loss almost as large as Trump’s and during the Arkansas years Hillary even took a tax deduction for itemized pieces of used clothing donated to a charity, including $2 for one of Bill’s used underpants.

The vice presidential “debate” revealed that the Democratic Party’s candidate is so ignorant that he thinks Putin, who is democratically elected and has enormous public support, is a dictator.

Here is what we know about the two presidential candidates. Hillary has a long list of scandals from Whitewater and Vince Foster to Benghazi and violation of national security protocols. She is bought-and-paid-for by the oligarchs on Wall Street, in the mega-banks, and in the military-security complex as well as by foreign interests. The proof is the Clinton’s $120 million personal fortune and the $1,600 million in their foundation. Goldman Sachs did not pay Hillary $675,000 for three 20-minute speeches for the wisdom they contained.

What we know about Trump is that the oligarchic establishment cannot stand him and has ordered the Ministry of Propaganda, a.k.a., the US media, to destroy him.

Clearly, Hillary is the candidate of the One Percent, and Trump is the candidate for the rest of us.

Unfortunately, about half of the 99 percent is too dumb to know this.

Moreover, if Trump were to end up in the White House, it doesn’t mean he could prevail over the oligarchy.

The oligarchy is entrenched in Washington with control over economic and foreign policy positions, think tanks and other lobbyists, and the media.

The people control nothing.

What does the world think when they see Donald Trump damned because he doesn’t want war with Russia or the American economy moved offshore?

Where in American politics do Washington’s European, British, Canadian, Australian, and Japanese vassals see leadership worthy of their sacrifice of sovereignty and independent foreign policy? Where do they even see a modicum of intelligence?

Why does the world look to the most stupid, vile, arrogant, corrupt and murderous government on the planet for leadership?

War is the only destination to which Washington can lead.

    The yanks are going mad on the internet trying to make people in Europre feel under threat by Russia because russia has entered the ring in Syria and told the americans that they will be hit if they invade or send over bombers an don’t respect internatinal law so now the yanks what us in Europe to join there ISIS proxy war because they are chicken shit.

    War or false flags in Europe will be coming to a station near you soon and then you need to have a word in person with your local MP’s if you can find any of them who are not hidding out.

    No question we’re living in historic times.

    At this point, there is no way that the US can return to a Republic. The baddies are too entrenched. In form and action, the leaders of the US appears no different than Nazi Germany; however, a latent agenda seems directed at the disintegration of the US and a controlled transfer of the US hegemony and leaders to the UN.

    Nuclear war has no practical application; rotting corpses and uninhabitable surfaces benefit no one. If population reduction is the goal, there are enough psychological and biological devices that would serve the purpose more effectively, mainly through sterilization and stupidification!

    In a more likely scenario in the current context, the herd mentality of humans will continue to intensify and eventually return civilization to centuries of misery and intellectual darkness.

    Excellent reading is the novel A Canticle for Liebowitz by Walter M. Miller, Jr.; it has been in print since 1960!

    Have a nice day!

    LoL, why indeed…
    Because the public are witless, always preferring the convenient lie instead of the inconvenient truth?
    Both PCR and I are constantly amazed at how the lies are lapped right up like pablum…
    It’s unreal.

      Exactly. Washington is not leading us to this war. They’re being dragged into it like a helpless ship being pulled into a whirlpool. And, all the while, they’re trying to hide their ineptitude by censoring the real truth thinking we’re too stupid to understand. Do we understand how devastating nuclear war could be?

      Of course. Do you understand that only an idiot invites the devil through the door thinking that the devil can be controlled. The Castro’s have been here since the 1980′s, folks. The CIA/FBI (get rich quick) went to war with the DEA (one day there will be a very heavy price to be paid if we don’t stop this) and won. Period. It’s just that simple.

      300 generals dismissed. Hello….

      Reagan In. Castro Up.
