Paul Craig Roberts — American economist and former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration.
When President Reagan appointed me as assistant Treasury secretary for economic policy, he told me that we had to rebuild the U.S. economy, to save her from stagflation, bringing it to full capacity, in order to build on this power, the Soviet leadership to agree to end the the Cold War. Reagan said that there is no reason to continue to live under the threat of nuclear war
President Reagan and his administration have achieved both goals, but only in order to see how their successors cast aside all these achievements. It made its own Vice-President Reagan and his successor, George Herbert Walker Bush, who first broke the Reagan-Gorbachev agreement by including the former components of the Soviet empire and the establishment of NATO military bases in the western Russian border.
The process of encircling Russia with military bases and continued by all subsequent U.S. administrations, this was done with the help of the "color revolutions", funded by the U.S. National Endowment for Democracy, which is widely considered a front for the CIA. Washington established a government controlled by him in the former Soviet republic of Georgia, the birthplace of Joseph Stalin and was trying to do the same in Ukraine.
The President of Georgia, a country located between the Black and Caspian seas, is a puppet of Washington. He recently announced that all is on schedule to former Soviet Georgia became a member of NATO in 2014.
Those who are old enough to remember know that NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization — an alliance of Western Europe and the United States, created to reflect the threat of capture by the Red Army of the West. From the North Atlantic to the Black and Caspian seas — a very long way. What is still needed to accept Georgia as a member of NATO except for the device of U.S. military bases in the underbelly of Russia?
All the evidence is that the actions of Washington (both parties — both Democrats and Republicans) are directed against Russia and China. Is the goal of the destruction of the two countries, or simply leave them unable to resist Washington's global hegemony, at present remains unclear. But, whatever, the most likely outcome would be a nuclear war.
Presstituirovannye American media write that evil Syrian government is killing innocent citizens who only want democracy and that if the UN does not intervene in the conflict by military force, it should the U.S. do to protect human rights. U.S. officials on what light is reviled Russia and China for their opposition to the invasion of NATO in Syria.
The real picture is, of course, different from the one painted by presstitutki of the U.S. media and representatives of the U.S. government. The Syrian "rebels" are well armed army assault weapons. "The rebels" fighting the Syrian army. Rebels kill civilians and talk through their mediashlyuh in the West, that the massacre was arranged by the Syrian government and Western presstitutki spreading this propaganda.
Someone delivers "the rebels' weapons, which, quite obviously, can not be bought at the local Syrian market? Smart people believe that the weapons come from the United States or from countries allies. [Editor's Note:. U.S. government officials told reporters that the CIA coordinates the delivery of arms to rebels, ie government openly admits that it plays? coordinating role in supplying arms]
Thus, Washington began a civil war in Syria, just as it did in Libya, but this time the gullible Russian and Chinese knew what was going on and refused to accept the UN resolution, the type that has been used by the West against Gaddafi.
To get around this obstacle, fished out from somewhere ancient, the Vietnam War, the Phantom and Turkey sent him flying over Syria. The Syrians will knock him, and then Turkey can appeal to its NATO allies, to come to the aid against Syria. Thus bypassing the UN, Washington may refer to its treaty obligations of NATO, and start a war in defense of NATO members from deionized Syria.
At the heart of Washington's hegemonic wars is neoconservative lie that the U.S. bring democracy to a country that they are being bombed or invaded. To paraphrase Mao, one might say — "democracy comes from the gun barrel." However, the "Arab Spring" failed the test of democracy, as well as Iraq and Afghanistan, two countries "liberated" Democratic U.S. invasion.
The fact that the United States really bring, so it's a civil war and the disintegration of the country, as happened in the former Yugoslavia — the achievement of the administration of President Bill Clinton. The more countries that will be torn to pieces and wallow in vnutriusobnoy fight, the more powerful will be Washington.
Putin understands that Russia is threatened not only by the Washington-financed "Russian opposition", but also by dissension, strife between Muslims in connection with the Washington waged war against secular Muslim states, such as Iraq and Syria. This disorder is distributed within Russia itself and puts it in front of problems such as Chechen terrorism.
When a secular state overthrown Islamist groups are free to cut each other's throats. Internal, internecine struggle makes the country powerless. As I wrote earlier, the influence of the West has always prevailed in the Middle East because Islamist groups hate each other more than they hate their Western conquerors. Thus, when Washington crushes a secular, non-Islamist government, as it did in Iraq, and now Syria has become the target of the Islamists look up and start to fight each other for power. This suits Washington and Israel, as these states cease to be their consistent opponents.
Russia is vulnerable, because Putin is demonized by Washington and the U.S. media, but also because the Russian opposition to Putin is financed by Washington and serves the interests of America, not Russia. Troubles in Muslim countries, which provokes and inspires Washington, extended to the Muslim population of Russia.
More difficult for Washington affair was interference in the internal affairs of China, although there, some provinces were sown the seeds of discord. After a few years, the Chinese economy is expected to overtake the U.S. economy in size, and Asian power will take away the title of the most powerful western economies in the world.
Washington is deeply concerned about the prospect. Under the control of Wall Street and other business groups, Washington can not save the American economy from recession. Short-term gambling profits of Wall Street profits of the military-industrial complex profits from war and U.S. markets from overseas output of goods and services have a much greater representation in Washington than the interests and welfare of U.S. citizens. At a time when the U.S. economy is sinking, the Chinese economy is booming.
The answer — the militarization of Washington Pacific Ocean. U.S. Secretary of State announced the South China Sea area of U.S. national interests. U.S. courted by the Philippine government, rozygryvaya map "China threat", and work hard to ensure that the U.S. Navy was invited to return to their former base at Subic Bay. Recently, due to the "China threat", carried out joint US-Philippine military / naval exercises.
U.S. Navy redistributed naval forces in the Pacific and began construction of a new naval base on an island in South Korea. U.S. Marines currently stationed in Australia, and being transferred from Japan to other Asian countries. The Chinese are not stupid. They are well aware that Washington is trying to "drive" China.
For a country that is unable to do anything in Iraq after eight years of occupation and not able to occupy Afghanistan after 11 years of war, at the same time "to take" two nuclear powers is an act of madness. The arrogance of Washington, daily fueled crazy neocons, despite the catastrophic failures in Iraq and Afghanistan, is now set his sights on two formidable powers — Russia and China. Never has, in its history, the world has not witnessed such idiocy.
Psychopaths, sociopaths and just assholes that prevail in Washington are leading the world to destruction.
Insane, criminal government in Washington, regardless of who it is — the Democrats or the Republicans, regardless of the results of the next election, is the greatest threat to life on earth that has ever existed.
In addition, the only source of money for the criminal authorities in Washington, is the printing press. In subsequent articles, I will discuss the question of whether the U.S. economy falls apart before the war criminals in Washington will destroy the world.
