World Believes U.S. Greatest Threat to Global Peace

By Paul Craig Roberts —

The consequence of Washington’s reckless and irresponsible political and military interventions in Iraq, Libya and Syria has been to unleash evil. The various sects that lived in peace under the rule of Saddam Hussein, Qadaffi and Assad are butchering one another, and a new group, ISIS, is in the process of creating a new state out of parts of Iraq and Syria.

The reality in the Middle East stands in vast contradiction to the stage-managed landing of George W. Bush on the U.S. aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln, where Bush declared, “Mission accomplished,” on May 1, 2003. The mission that Washington accomplished was to wreck the Middle East and the lives of millions of people and to destroy America’s reputation in the process. Thanks to the demonic neoconservative Bush regime, today America is regarded by the rest of the world as the greatest threat to world peace.

The Clinton regime’s attack on Serbia in 1998 set the pattern. Bush upped the ante with Washington’s naked aggression against Afghanistan, which Washington clothed in Orwellian language-–“Operation Enduring Freedom.”


Washington brought ruin, not freedom, to Afghanistan. After 13 years of blowing up the country, Washington is now withdrawing, the “superpower” having been defeated by a few thousand lightly armed Taliban, but leaving a wasteland behind for which Washington will accept no responsibility.

Another source of endless Middle East turmoil is Israel, whose theft of Palestine is Washington-enabled. In the middle of Israel’s latest attack on civilians in Gaza, the U.S. Congress passed resolutions in support of Israel’s war crimes and voted hundreds of millions of dollars to pay for Israel’s ammunition. Here we witness Great Moral America 100% in support of unambiguous war crimes against essentially defenseless people.

When Israel murders women and children, Washington calls it “Israel’s right to defend their own country”—a country that Israel stole from Palestinians—but when Palestinians retaliate Washington calls it “terrorism.” By supporting Israel, declared to be a terrorist state by a few moral governments that still exist and accused of war crimes by the UN general secretary, Washington is in violation of its own laws against supporting terrorist states.

As horrific as Washington’s recklessness toward the Middle East is, Washington’s recklessness toward Russia is many orders of magnitude greater. Washington has convinced nuclear-armed Russia that Washington is planning a nuclear first strike. In response, Russia is beefing up its nuclear forces and testing U.S. air defense reactions.

It is difficult to imagine a more irresponsible act than to convince Russia that Washington intends to hit Russia with a preemptive first strike.

One of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s advisers has explained to the Russian media Washington’s first strike intentions, and a member of the Russian Duma has made a documented presentation of Washington’s first strike intentions.


The Chinese are fully aware that their nation faces the same threat from Washington, D.C. warmongers. China’s response to Washington’s war plans against China was to try to demonstrate how China’s nuclear forces would be used in response to Washington’s attack on China, and that America should beware.

China made this public, hoping to create opposition among Americans to Washington’s war plans against China. Like Russia, China is a rising country that does not need war in order to succeed.

U.S. Needs War

The only country on Earth that needs war is Washington, and that is because Washington’s goal is the neoconservative one of exercising hegemony over the world.

Prior to the Bush and Obama regimes, every previous U.S. president went to great efforts to avoid telegraphing any nuclear threat. U.S. war doctrine was careful to keep nuclear weapons limited to retaliation in the event the U.S. suffered a nuclear attack. The purpose of nuclear forces was to prevent the use of such weapons. The reckless George W. Bush regime elevated nuclear weapons to preemptive first use, thus destroying the constraint placed on the use of nuclear weapons.

The overriding purpose of the Reagan administration was to end the Cold War and, thereby, the threat of nuclear war. The George W. Bush regime, together with the Obama regime’s demonization of Russia, have overturned Reagan’s unique achievement and made nuclear war likely.

Incompetent Regime

When the incompetent Obama regime decided to overthrow the democratically elected government in Ukraine and install a puppet government of Washington’s choosing, the Obama State Department, run by neoconservative ideologues, forgot that the eastern and southern portions of Ukraine consist of former Russian provinces that were attached to the Ukraine Soviet Socialist Republic by Communist Party leaders when Ukraine and Russia were part of the same country—the Soviet Union.

When the Russophobic stooges that Washington installed in Kiev demonstrated in word and deed their hostility to Ukraine’s Russian population, the former Russian provinces declared their desire to return to mother Russia. This is not surprising, nor is it something that can be blamed on Russia.

Crimea succeeded in returning to Russia, where Crimea resided since the 1700s, but Putin, hoping to defuse the propaganda war that Washington was mounting against him, did not accept the pleas from the other former Russian provinces. Consequently, Washington’s stooges in Kiev felt free to attack the protesting provinces and have been following the Israeli policy of attacking civilian populations, civilian
residences and civilian infrastructure.

The presstitute Western media ignored the facts and accused Russia of invading and annexing parts of Ukraine. This lie is comparable to the lies that Secretary of State Colin Powell told the UN about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction in behalf of the criminal Bush regime, lies that Powell later apologized for to no avail, as Iraq had been destroyed by his lies.

U.S. and NATO military dignitaries and the Pentagon chief are issuing Russia threat warnings based on alleged but non-existent Russian troop buildups on Ukraine’s border. According to the Western ministry of propaganda, if Russia defends the Russian populations in Ukraine from military attack from Washington’s stooge government in Kiev, it is proof that Russia is the villain.

Washington’s propaganda campaign has succeeded in turning Russia into a threat. Polls show that 69% of Americans now regard Russia as a threat, and that the confidence of Russians in American leadership has vanished.

Russians and their government observe the identical demonization of their country and their leader as they observed of Iraq and Saddam, of Libya and Qaddafi, of Syria and Assad, and of Afghanistan and the Taliban just prior to military assaults on these countries by the West. For a Russian, the safest conclusion from the evidence is that Washington intends war on Russia.

Without Precedent

It is my opinion that the irresponsibility and recklessness of the Obama regime is without precedent. Never before has the U.S. government or the government of any nuclear power gone to such great efforts to convince another nuclear power that that power was being set up for attack. It is difficult to imagine a more provocative act that more endangers life on Earth. Indeed, the White House fool has doubled up, convincing both Russia and China that Washington is planning a preemptive first strike on both.

Republicans want to sue or to impeach Obama over relatively inconsequential issues, such as Obamacare. Why don’t Republicans want to impeach Obama over such a critical issue as subjecting the world to the risk of nuclear Armageddon?

The answer is that the Republicans are as crazed as the Democrats. Their leaders, such as Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), are determined that “we stand up to the Russians!” Wherever one looks in American politics one sees crazed people, psychopaths and sociopaths who should not be in political office.

Greatest Threat

Washington long ago gave up diplomacy. Washington relies on force and intimidation. The U.S. government is utterly devoid of judgment. This is why polls show that the rest of the world regards the U.S. government as the greatest threat to world peace. On Aug. 8, Handelsblatt, Germany’s Wall Street Journal wrote in a signed editorial by the publisher:

The American tendency to move from verbal escalation to military escalation—the isolation, demonization, and attacking of enemies—has not proven effective. The last successful major military action the U.S. conducted was the Normandy landing [in 1944]. Everything else—Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan—was a clear failure. Moving NATO units toward the Polish border with Russia and thinking about arming Ukraine is a continuation of relying on military means in the absence of diplomacy.

Washington’s puppet states—all of Europe, Japan, Canada and Australia—enable Washington’s unrivaled danger to the world by their support of Washington’s agenda of exercising hegemony over the entire world.

The 100th anniversary of World War I is upon us and the folly that caused this war is being repeated. WWI destroyed a civilized Western world, and it was the work of a mere handful of scheming people.

As Stephen Starr has pointed out on my website, if merely 10% of the nuclear weapons in the U.S. and Russian arsenals are used, life on Earth terminates.

When has Washington told you anything that was not a lie? Washington’s lies have caused millions of casualties. Do you want to be a casualty of Washington’s lies?

Do you believe that Washington’s lies and propaganda about the Malaysian airliner and Ukraine are worth risking life on Earth? Who is so gullible that he cannot recognize that Washington’s lies about Ukraine are like Washington’s lies about Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Iranian nukes and Assad’s use of chemical weapons?

Do you think that the neoconservative influence that prevails in Washington, regardless of the political party in office, is too dangerous to be tolerated?

    U.S General Smedley Butler on Interventionism (1933)

    I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

    I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.

    I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.

    During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.

    End of the American Dream

    The Economic Collapse

  2. Sen. John McCrazy and the idiot from South Carolina, Lindsay (the cracker) Graham don’t have the urge and nutso onus to attack Russia; they are bought and paid for by the Zionists and have been for a long time.

    Most of Congress is on the Zio payroll, and much of the power elite suck up to the joos.

    Any wonder why we are on the way down, down, down?

  3. Russia is a Superpower again


    The U.S. is meddling in Russia’s backyard since Bill Clinton pushing NATO and continued with Bush and Obama. Putin is the good guy here and the U.S. is bullying the world.

  4. As bad as you say he is, at least we’re not officially at war in Iraq yet. If Romney were in office, we would be at war on 3-4 fronts in Middle East. Funny how McCain was in Syria awhile back talking to the rebels who were trying to overthrow Assad and who now appear to be ISIS. Now he wants to bomb the hell out of Syria to blunt ISIS who, by the way, is at war with Assad. So whose side is he on? Does he think we can kill all of ISIS, as well as all our enemies in Middle East?

    There was a time when Great Britain was the most hated country in the world. I can see how we have taken that distinct honor. And by the way, Hillary scares the hell out of me.

  5. Once the yonic Minge-Synagogue Judaism get in “union” with the phallic “onion” towered churches and Christianity, we get screwed up and the world shall be reborn and resurrected, from the East (China which has most monuments underground and in Underworld).

    Today, your religious looney-tunes preach ‘Judeo-Christianity’ in the West, USA. Your ‘Union Station’ in D.C. and Dela-WAR-e Avenue has not only a ‘Trident’ shape on the local maps, but also the angle of the Way of the Dead in Teotihuacan (Milky Way angle), 15° 28′ arc degrees what is also 928 arc minutes matched by the 928 chapters of the Old Testament in the USA Protestant Bibles. The same angle has the twin, soli-lunar cities of Luxor-Karnak or Bethlehem and Jerusalem, parallel to Nazareth and Beer’sheba, the Well of Seven(7) and of Oath. The same angle has India’s benares and Madurai, or China’s Nanking-Canton, old capitals. In Mesoamerica it is the Kukulkan’s pyramid and the Sacrificial Well of Chichen Itza (Female virgin son). But also in the masonic SQUARED twin cities of D.C. and Alexandria (symbol of New Jerusalem, as Acropolis of Athens or god Aker of SoKaR-sqr in saqqara, etc.) the male stargate symbol, the alignment of Union Station-DelaWARe Ave. and the Bull/Taurus shaped White House (with its Oval Office) and Pentagon (female stargate), 15°28′ NE-SW!!! The White House is the male, Bull stargate of Ephraim (USA) described as a Bull who chases the nations to all corners. (UK is elder brother Manasseh of Joseph from Egypt). Taurusthe Bull has a total of 141 stars…9 x 11 star rows and columns = 99 + the 6 x 7 stripes is 42, totaling 141. A pentagon is also in Vat-i-Can, Rome, Italy as Castello di San Angelo with some maps revealing Pentagonal structure with Square and Circle in it as 540 members of the U.S. Congress and Senate, in arc seconds Pentagon, as the Maya solar cycle-calendar!!! There are also Pentagons all over the world, and pentagonal temples like those on Malta, as the female stargate symbol, just as the 5-tipped rose of England. Union Station-Delaware Ave. and White House pentagon is the SPRING EQUINOX symbol, aligned to Pennsylvania Avenue which is the SOLSTICE PATH toward the center of our Galaxy and Black Hole!!! The Underworld Virginia Ave. is the Underworld with its aligned New Jersey-White Linen dressed our souls in the purgatory process in the cosmic WOMB-our souls will go after the death of our bodies and then get reborn, resurrected! The true, MAGNETIC NORTH is marking the Capitol Hill Avenue!!! And note the WHITE OWL in D.C., the symbol of DEATH, but also of WISDOM, also seen on $1 bills or the AT&T skyscraper which has a plastic WHITE OWL above its main entrance, and AT&T is the last building in the Maya-Biblical U.S. skyscrapers calendar as revealed in National Geographic magazine, February 1989, pages 140-185, a true and genuine CONFESSION to 9/11 Zionist-masonic attacks!!!

  6. The Avalon Island in the UK with its medieval masonic astronomy symbolism means also an Apple Island, the symbol of sexual sin and fall of mankind, encoded in our Galaxy symbolism, the phallic Belt of Orion and the yonic Black Hole in the center of our Galaxy. The “onion” towered phallic churches with mostly female worshipers-attendants who worship the male gods, father and Son.

    And then, there is the Synagogue, Greek name for the original Hebrew-Yiddish name temple. Sin means lunar and female stargate, just as the Chinese Xian. In Hebrew-Yiddish language they call it Minha/Minge, where only male members mostly attends and worship all after the female and Great mother stargate symbols. Christ, the male god, is denounced and rejected, and the male highest ‘G-d’ is written with hyphen!

    The Islamic Mosque has similar meanings but dual symbolism. Furthermore, where it’s cold, as in the Northern latitudes, there is a solar religions (of Christ, the Sun and Son in 3 main denominations). Where it’s hot, like the Middle East, there are lunar religions like Judaism and Islam!

  7. Once again, you must understand the ancient astronomies and roles assigned to a certain parts of the world and countries. There is RED East and BLUE West, so are the Red Republicans and Blue Demonrats (Labour and Torries). In the 535 members of the U.S. Congress and Senate is a cycle calendar. So it is in the EU Parliament members amount, and elsewhere. So, don’t be surprised that all or most governments nowadays are Zionist controlled and Zionist puppet governments! In masonic symbolism, “God will came from the West to judge the world,” meanwhile the East is the place of NEW REBIRTH, RESURRECTION and SUN RISE. Russia has its cemeteries facing toward the East, their “onion” (phallic-male stargate) towered churches are aligned mostly East-West, from West is the entrance, the religious sheep face East and altar, and the priest face West, as masonic representative of “God.” The same is in Roman Catholicism. In the West is the place of Aquarian HEAD OF MAN, elsewhere the animals like the lion, bull and eagle. Russia re-adopted the double headed eagle (West-East) and the eagle crutches the GOLDEN APPLE in its claws, as the symbol of SEXUAL SIN and FALL, Belt of Orion aligned with the Black Hole (as the cosmic phallus-stargate and vagina Black Hole). In its right claw is the SWORD (Belt of Orion, phallic stargate of new beginning). Within the chest of the double-headed eagle is the Dragon Slayer role-assigned to Russia and the East in general, to slay the wicked, satanic and judgmental West (USA)!!!

    Our bi-polar world is on the move. The former Soviet Union was moved to the European Union, the near future Gulag of captive nations! The former,”positive” pole, USA, is on the final move to China, the next superpower of the world! But the goyim of ignorant AmeriKa (kosher) cannot figure this out.

  8. Who are you people? You are spreading a lot of lies. The people who are looking for something against the United States must be the ones you hope subscribe to your lies.

    Publish the truth.
