Americans are sucking their thumbs while US heads directly toward nuclear war

in news •  10 months ago

I often harp on the mindless infighting that takes place inside the United States that is based on people's inability to escape the childish assumption that political beliefs are restrained to a left - right paradigm. Anything that strays beyond this established left - right train of thought is considered utopic and of another world.

This inability to lift consciousness above the establishment's paradigm is allowing war to be made rather easily, like a knife through butter. While the citizens fight over who is right and who is wrong amongst themselves the mainstream media and war hawks in Washington have convinced us that exterior threats such as a North Korean leader is the largest threat to world peace. This can only be believed if you have absolutely no understanding of US foreign policy.

I find it sad when I hear fellow Americans eagerly calling for bombs to reign over North Korea but then ask the question, "Why does Kim Jong Un want to bomb the US?"

The average person has absolutely no understanding of US foreign policy and this is exactly what the war makers want.

What has influenced me to make this post today is the latest column from former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under President Reagan, Paul Craig Roberts.

There are little people out there that can put the grim nature of world affairs into a clear perspective as Paul Craig Roberts can.

I will leave you with this excerpt and a link to his full article. Please give it a read.

The American people are clearly out to lunch in their insouciance. Americans are fighting among themselves over “civil war” statues, while “their’ government invites nuclear armageddon.
The United States has an ambassador to the world who shows no signs of intelligence, who behaves as if she is Mike Tyson or Bruce Lee to the 5th power, and who is the total antithesis of a diplomat. What does this tell about the United States?
It reveals that the US is in the Roman collapse stage when the emperor appoints horses to the Senate.
The United States has a horse, an uncivilized horse, as its diplomat to the world. The Congress and executive branch are also full of horses and horse excrement. The US government is completely devoid of intelligence. There is no sign of intelligence anywhere in the U.S. government. Of or morality. As Hugo Chavez said: Satan is there; you can smell the sulphur.
America is a joke with nuclear weapons, the prime danger to life on earth.

Paul Craig Roberts has applied for Russian citizenship. Enough said.

The USG is the world's number gang. It is the Empire. This is something free market anarchists and socialist utopians can agree on.
