Washington is Insane — Paul Craig Roberts

In the 21st century the two hundred year-old propaganda that the American people control their government has been completely shattered. Both the Bush and Obama regimes have made it unmistakenly clear that the American people don’t even influence, much less control, the government. As far as Washington is concerned, the people are nothing but chaff in the wind.

Polls demonstrate that 65% of the US population opposes US intervention in Syria. Despite this clear indication of the people’s will, the Obama regime is ramping up a propaganda case for more arming of Washington’s mercenaries sent to overthrow the secular Syrian government and for a “no-fly zone” over Syria, which, if Libya is the example, means US or NATO aircraft attacking the Syrian army on the ground, thus serving as the air force of Washington’s imported mercenaries, euphemistically called “the Syrian rebels.”

The “Red Line”

Washington declared some time ago that the “red line” that would bring Syria under Washington’s military attack was the Assad government’s use of chemical weapons of mass destruction against Washington’s mercenaries. Once this announcement was made, everyone with a brain immediately knew that Washington would fabricate false intelligence that Assad had used chemical weapons, just as Washington presented to the United Nations the intentional lie via Secretary of State Colin Powell that Saddam Hussein in Iraq had dangerous weapons of mass destruction. Remember National Security Advisor Condi Rice’s image of a “mushroom cloud over American cities?” Propagandistic lies were Washington’s orders of the day.

Excellent Article

You should have linked to the original article on Paul's own site rather than the unauthorized copy hosted on a known Jew hating site.


We have to start BLOGGING everywhere about this--

It's our only hope of avoiding this heinous situation. If our so-called "leaders" think they can evade the planet to an underground tunnel "safe" system, they are sorely mistaken.

Why? Because even if they get their way to destroy 3/4 of the planet, so they can soon re-emerge unscathed, they are really kidding themselves.

First, anybody who would survive would find their tunnels of living & destroy all exits out. They would be trapped beneath the earth till they die, as I see it. I cannot fathom the anger that would come out of masses of grief-stricken people who would surely know the truth about all of it.


Third, I hope someone, if not Edward Snowden, has captured conversations that, if broadcast, would destroy the reputations of our political leaders so thoroughly that they would never recover from the TRUTH. Jail would be next for these people, and they know it.

If they have any brains left, they will NOT push war on Syria. The underling Congressmen had better get a grip on this situation & start showing their muster & courage to fight the Leaders on this, and they better get going in a VERY PUBLIC WAY......SOON.

Yes it has gone crazy.

And they want to make the only cure illegal; an armed citizenry.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
