Is Washington deaf as well as criminal?
By Paul Craig Roberts
Posted on August 30, 2012 by Paul Craig Roberts

The morons who rule the American sheeple are not only dumb and
blind, they are deaf as well. The ears of the American “superpower” only work when the Israeli prime minister, the crazed Netanyahu, speaks.
Then Washington hears everything and rushes to comply.
Israel is a tiny insignificant state, created by the careless British and the stupid Americans. It has no power except what its American
protector provides. Yet, despite Israel’s insignificance, it rules
When a resolution introduced by the Israel Lobby is delivered to
Congress, it passes unanimously. If Israel wants war, Israel gets its
wish. When Israel commits war crimes against Palestinians and Lebanon
and is damned by the hundred-plus UN resolutions passed against Israel’s criminal actions, the US bails Israel out of trouble with its veto.
The power that tiny Israel exercises over the “world’s only
superpower” is unique in history. Tens of millions of “Christians” bow
down to this power, reinforcing it, moved by the exhortations of their
“Christian” ministers.
Netanyahu lusts for war against Iran. He strikes out against all who
oppose his war lust. Recently, he called Israel’s top generals “pussies” for warning against a war with Iran. He regards former Israeli prime
ministers and former heads of the Israeli intelligence service as
traitors for opposing his determination to attack Iran. He has denounced America’s servile president, Obama, and America’s top military leader
for being “soft on Iran.” The latest poll in Israel shows that a solid
majority of the Israelis are opposed to an Israeli attack on Iran. But
Netanyahu is uninterested in the opinion of Israeli citizens. He has
Washington watching his back, so he is war mad. It is a mystery why
Israelis put Netanyahu in public office instead of in an insane asylum.
Netanyahu is not alone. He has the American neoconservatives in his
corner. The American neoconservatives are as crazed as Netanyahu. They
believe in nuclear war and are itching to nuke some Muslim country and
then get on to nuking Russia and China. It is amazing that no more than
two or three dozen people have the fate of the entire world in their
The Democratic Party is helpless before them.
The Republican Party is their vehicle.
The Russians, watching Netanyahu push Washington toward dangerous
confrontations keep raising their voices about the danger of nuclear
On May 17, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev warned the West
against launching “hasty wars,” which could result “although I do not
want to scare anyone” in “the use of a nuclear weapon.”
On November 30 of last year, the Chief of the General Staff of the
Armed Forces of Russia warned of nuclear war with NATO. General Nikolai
Makarov said that NATO’s eastward expansion meant that the risk of
Russia coming into conflict with NATO had “risen sharply.” General
Makarov said, “I do not rule out local and regional armed conflicts
developing into a large-scale war, including using nuclear weapons.”
Here is Russian President Medvedev (currently the prime minister)
describing the steps toward nuclear war that Russia has taken pushed by
the crazed warmongers in Washington wallowing in their insane hubris:
With regard to the American missile bases on Russia’s borders, “I
have made the following decisions. First, I am instructing the Defense
Ministry to immediately put the missile attack early warning radar
station in Kaliningrad on combat alert. Second, protective cover of
Russia’s strategic nuclear weapons will be reinforced as a priority
measure under the program to develop our air and space defenses. Third,
the new strategic ballistic missiles commissioned by the Strategic
Missile Forces and the Navy will be equipped with advanced missile
defense penetration systems and new highly-effective warheads. Fourth, I have instructed the Armed Forces to draw up measures for disabling
missile defense system data and guidance systems. These measures will be adequate, effective, and low-cost. Fifth, if the above measures prove
insufficient, the Russian Federation will deploy modern offensive weapon systems in the west and south of the country, ensuring our ability to
take out any part of the US missile defense system in Europe. One step
in this process will be to deploy Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad
Region. Other measures to counter the European missile defense system
will be drawn up and implemented as necessary. Furthermore, if the
situation continues to develop not to Russia’s favor, we reserve the
right to discontinue further disarmament and arms control measures.”
Russian president Vladimir Putin has said, as politely as possible,
that the US seeks to enslave the world, that the US seeks vassals, not
allies, that the US seeks to rule the world and that the US is a
parasite on the world economy. It would be difficult for an informed
person to take exception with Putin’s statements.
Putin told the politicians in Washington and Western and Eastern
European capitals that surrounding Russia with anti-ballistic missiles
“raises the specter of nuclear war in Europe.” Putin said that the
Russian response is to point nuclear armed cruise missiles, which cannot be intercepted by anti-ballistic missiles, at the US missile bases and
at European capitals. The American move, Putin said, “could trigger
nuclear war.”
Putin has been trying to wake up the American puppet states in Europe at least since February 13, 2007. At the 43rd Munich Conference on
Security Policy, Putin said that the unipolar world that Washington was
striving to achieve under its banner, “is a world in which there is one
master, one sovereign. And at the end of the day this is pernicious not
only for all those within this system, but also for the sovereign itself because it destroys itself from within.”
That has certainly happened to the US which now has a police state as thorough-going as Nazi Germany. And even better armed.
Putin went on to tell his European audience that in Russia, “we are
constantly being taught about democracy. But for some reason those who
teach us do not want to learn themselves.” Instead, Putin said, “we are
seeing a greater and greater disdain for the basis principles of
international law. And independent legal norms are, as a matter of fact, coming increasingly closer to one state’s legal system. One state and,
of course, first and foremost the United States, has overstepped its
national borders in every way. This is visible in the economic,
political, cultural and educational policies it imposes on other
nations. Well, Who likes this? Who is happy about this?”
People are not happy, Putin said, because they don’t feel safe. Not
to feel safe “is extremely dangerous. It results in the fact that no one feels safe. I want to emphasize this–no one feels safe!” The result,
Putin said, is “an arms race.”
Putin politely unbraided the Italian defense minister, a person owned by Washington, for suggesting that NATO or the EU could take the place
of the UN in justifying the use of force against sovereign countries.
Putin took exception to the idea that Washington could use its puppet
organization or its puppet states to legitimize an act of US aggression. Putin stated flatly: “The use of force can only be considered
legitimate if the decision is sanctioned by the UN.”
Putin went on to discuss the forked tongue of Washington. Reagan and
Gorbachev had firm agreements, but Reagan’s successors put “frontline
forces on our borders. . . . The stones and concrete blocks of the
Berlin Wall have long been distributed as souvenirs. But we should not
forget that the fall of the Berlin Wall was possible thanks to a
historic choice—one that was also made by our people, the people of
Russia—a choice in favor of democracy, freedom, openness and a sincere
partnership with all the members of the big European family. And now
they are trying to impose new dividing lines and walls on us—these walls may be virtual but they are nevertheless dividing ones that cut through our continent. And is it possible that we will once again require many
years and decades, as well as several generations of politicians, to
dissemble and dismantle these new walls.”
Putin’s speech of more than 6 years ago shows that he has
Washington’s number. Washington is The Great Pretender, pretending to
respect human rights while Washington slaughters Muslims in seven
countries on the basis of lies and fabricated intelligence. The American people, “the indispensable people,” support this murderous policy.
Washington uses the status of the dollar as reserve currency to exclude
countries that do not do Washington’s bidding from the international
clearing system.
Washington, awash in hubris like Napoleon and Hitler before they
marched off into Russia, has turned a deaf, dumb, and blind ear to Putin during the entirety of the 21st century. Speaking on May 10, 2006,
Putin said: “We are aware of what is gong on in the world. Comrade wolf
[the US] knows whom to eat, he eats without listening, and he’s clearly
not going to listen to anyone.”
“Where,” Putin asked, is Washington’s “pathos about protecting human
rights and democracy when it comes to the need to pursue its own
interests?” For Washington, “everything is allowed, there are no
restrictions whatsoever.”
China also has caught on. Now the hubris that drives Washington
toward world hegemony confronts two massive nuclear powers. Will the
criminal gang in Washington drive the world to nuclear extinction?
Washington, thinking that it owns the world, has imposed more
unilateral sanctions on Iran without any basis in any recognized law.
The imposed sanctions are nothing but Washington’s assertion that its
might is right.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Washington could stick its
sanctions up its ass. “We consider efforts to impose internal American
legislation on the entire world completely unacceptable.”
Washington will do what it can to assassinate Putin and effect regime change through the Russian “opposition” that Washington funds. Failing
that, Washington’s pursuit of world hegemony has run up against a brick
wall. If the fools in Washington with their hubris-inflated egos don’t
back off, that mushroom cloud they have been warning about will indeed
blossom over Washington.
