America’s Conquest of Western Europe: Is Europe Doomed By Vassalage To Washington?

Written by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts; Originally appeared at Globalresearch

“One Ring to rule them all . . . and in the darkness bind them.”  — J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

World War II resulted in Europe being conquered, not by Berlin but by Washington.

The conquest was certain but not all at once.  Washington’s conquest of Europe resulted from the Marshall Plan, from fears of Stalin’s Red Army that caused Europe to rely on Washington’s protection and to subordinate

Europe’s militaries to Washington in NATO, from the replacement of the British pound as world reserve currency with the US dollar, and from the long process of the subordination of the sovereignty of individual European countries to the European Union, a CIA initiative implemented by Washington in order to control all of Europe by controlling only one unaccountable government.

With few exceptions, principally the UK, membership in the EU also meant loss of financial independence. As only the European Central Bank, an EU institution, can create euros, those countries so foolish as to accept the euro as their currency no longer have the power to create their own money in order to finance budget deficits.

The countries that joined the euro must rely on private banks to finance their deficits.  The result of this is that over-indebted countries can no longer pay their debts by creating money or expect their debts to be written down to levels that they can service.  Instead, Greece, Portugal, Latvia, and Ireland were looted by the private banks.

The EU forced the pseudo-governments of these countries to pay the northern European private banks by suppressing the living standards of their populations and by privatizing public assets at pennies on the dollar. Thus retirement pensions, public employment, education and health services have been cut and the money redirected to private banks.  Municipal water companies have been privatized with the result being higher water bills.  And so on.

As there is no reward, only punishment, for being a member of the EU, why did governments, despite the expressed wishes of their peoples, join?

The answer is that Washington would have it no other way. The European founders of the EU are mythical creatures. Washington used politicians that Washington controlled to create the EU.

Some years ago CIA documents proving that the EU was a CIA initiative were released. See:  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/1356047/Euro-federalists-financed-by-US-spy-chiefs.html   and  http://benwilliamslibrary.com/blog/?p=5080

In the 1970s my Ph.D. dissertation chairman, then a very high-ranking official in Washington with control over international security affairs, asked me to undertake a sensitive mission abroad.  I refused. Nevertheless, he answered my question: “How does Washington get foreign countries to do what Washington wants?”

“Money,” he said. “We give their leaders bagfuls of money.  They belong to us.”

The record is clear that the EU serves the interests of Washington, not the interests of Europe.  For example, the French people and government are opposed to GMOs, but the EU permits a “precautionary market authorization” of GMO introduction, relying perhaps on the “scientific findings” of the scientists on Monsanto’s payroll. When the US state of Vermont passed a law requiring labeling of GMO foods, Monsanto sued the state of Vermont. Once the paid-off EU officials sign the TTIP agreement written by US global corporations, Monsanto will take over European agriculture.

But the danger to Europe goes far beyond the health of European peoples who will be forced to dine on poisonous foods.  Washington is using the EU to force Europeans into conflict with Russia, a powerful nuclear power capable of destroying all of Europe and all of the United States in a few minutes.

This is happening because the paid-off with “bagfuls of money” European “leaders” had rather have Washington’s money in the short-run than for Europeans to live in the long-run.

It is not possible that any European politician is sufficiently moronic to believe that Russia invaded Ukraine, that Russia any moment will invade Poland and the Baltic states, or that Putin is a “new Hitler” scheming to reconstruct the Soviet Empire.  These absurd allegations are nothing but Washington propaganda devoid entirely of truth. Washington’s propaganda is completely transparent.  Not even an idiot could believe it.

Yet the EU goes along with the propaganda, as does NATO.

Why?  The answer is Washington’s money. The EU and NATO are utterly corrupt. They are Washington’s well paid whores.

The only way Europeans can prevent a nuclear World War III and continue to live and to enjoy what remains of their culture that the Americans have not destroyed with America’s culture of sex and violence and greed, is for the European governments to follow the lead of the English and exit the CIA-created European Union.  And exit NATO, the purpose of which evaporated with the collapse of the Soviet Union, and which is now being used as an instrument of Washington’s World Hegemony.

Why do Europeans want to die for Washington’s world hegemony?  That means Europeans are dying for Washington’s hegemony over them as well.

Why do Europeans want to support Washington when Washington’s high officials, such as Victoria Nuland, say “Fuck the EU.”

Europeans are already suffering from the economic sanctions that their overlord in Washington forced them to apply to Russia and Iran.  Why do Europeans want to be destroyed by war with Russia?  Do Europeans have a death wish?  Have Europeans been Americanized and no longer appreciate the historic accumulation of artistic and architectural beauty, literature and music achievements of which their countries are custodians?

The answer is that it makes no difference whatsoever what Europeans think, because Washington has set up a government for them that is totally independent of their wishes. The EU government is accountable only to Washington’s money.  A few people capable of issuing edicts are on Washington’s payroll. The entire peoples of Europe are Washington’s serfs.

Therefore, if Europeans remain the gullible, insouciant, and stupid peoples that they currently are, they are are doomed, along with the rest of us.

On the other hand, if the European peoples can come to their senses, free themselves from The Matrix that Washington has imposed on them, and revolt against Washington’s agents who control them, the European peoples can save their own lives and the lives of the rest of us.

    Straightforward language! Especially : “Washingtons well paid whores” . It expresses the truth.

  • Indigenous European tribal peoples were conquered by foreigners in 1945.
    The world impatiently awaits their liberation from outsiders. Kick the USSA and UK out of mainland Europe today!

    • Jens Holm

      Very funny – spanish flew too ?

  • Jens Holm

    Better with Hitler then ?

    And he`s from a country making Trump as a president Candidate – and before that Sarah Pahlin.

    We are not in any matrix. We are a part of the global economy and some european contries has problems around it, but dont make ours worse, then they are compered to, whats going on in the rest of the world.

    A little senile articel – I think.

    You also seems to forget to compare the USSR successes in the rest of Europe. DDR, Poland, Tjekkoslovakia, Bulgaria, Hungary – Estonis, Latvia & Lituania – and Albania and Yugoslavia as well.

    We dont prefere that, and some of our money go to devvellop those liberated countries – because our economy and independensy has been helped by USA incl. the Marshall plan – which wasnt – by the way – not only an European thing.

    US sold and almost gave russians during ww2 250.000 trucks filled up with petrol, 88.000 jeeps, a big railroad from Murmansk every thing included, 13000 aeroplanes, 7000 tanks, many shipsloads of clothe and food and loads of crome, nikel, mangan to upgrade Sovjet lousy steel(because they lost their mines in Ukraine a the 2 biggest car producers). Not a single kilo were sailed by Sovjet ships to Murmansk, Basra and Vladivostok.

    Sovjets decolared war against japan i 1945, and the russians started in 1941 by loosing and army of 6 million men & women. Stalin taking over western Europe as a nice guy. I dont think so.

    Of course we feel something exrtra for the americans even many emmigrants moved over there because they didnt like us. That goes the other way too.

      Your postings are completely devoid of facts or extremely one-sided, besides that your thinking is purely based on win-lose kind of maths suitable for a 5-year old.

      For example, even with all those things that “US gave to UdSSR”, it was the Russians who gave almoist 30 million lives in WW2 and then actually liberated almost all of Europe.

      As for your wrong assertions, Yugoslavia was never friends with Russia and in the 50’s almost at war with the soviet bloc, while say Albania was always completely isolated and on its own. But if wishful thinking makes you feel better, please do, enjoy it.

      • Jens Holm

        The 30 millions You mention is total at the East front and include deads in the occupied countries by the Sovjet first, then the Germans and then the Sovjets again. Finland, Estonia, Lituania, Latvia and 1/2 part of Poland.

        And Stalin at Barberossa let more than 6 mio. being killed by totally army, airplane and fleet stupidity totally stupid with cleansing of the Red army and putting the Red army from its own very good defence line – called the Stalin line. Dont blame those millions to others. The You had starvation, and bad healthcare incl. not giving Leningrad food.

        I havent called Yougoslavia & Albania for russians – but they became not a part of the Western Europe.

        USSR declared war at the Japanese in 1945. Nineteenfortyfive. Who figted aganinst them too. Chines, Britts and 90% USA.

        Russians didnt liberate Europe. They occupied as much as they could insted of Hitler and took more back, then the The Zars had quonquered.

        The role for USA was exactly the same as in WW1. Europe was non of there buisness. In 1938 the US army was 125.000 and should grow to 1 million – Not because of Europe – but because af the Jappanese comming. They therefore made army, fleet and airforce to fight against the Japanese, which were a totally diffrent kind of war and also mostly at the Sea(Many hangarships, submarines and fx made the Catalina to a military unit).

        Bombings & demolizing of the Nazi military complexes were mainly by Britts and US.

        They did theirs, but its very narrow just telling that USSR wun the war against the Nazis. At the end of the war US troops had escalated to more than 12 million including transport of almost everything over Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Russians only had to walk.

        USA also stopped the war against Japan. And what did the russians do than – claimed territory from the Japanese. Who made a wall and diveded europe, som the people in the east couldnt run away.

        USA make terrible mistakes today too. But dont put Russia up as the winner for more than it can take.

        Even the dwarft are taller there ??? And parking space in Sibiria bigger too ?

      You should learn some English. Your English is lousy, as lousy as your stupid comment

      • Jens Holm

        Thank You for understanding, what I write in lousy English. Normally I only speak and read now and then.

  • hterht

    Whoever the author is speaking about, there is no such thing like “Europeans” in Europe besides the politcal class and their satellites, which are in total maybe 1% of the people in each country. Also Europe is a continent, not some federal country.

  • Ronald

    Outstanding article, and the link to the Telegraph exposure of declassified CIA documents, eye opening history. Hopefully there is enough awareness of how bad the TIPP would be for Europe that it will be stopped or sidelined. Maybe one or two more countries will exit ! The EU should take a step back to being a free trade zone,with border controls. There is no need to act like the original 13 colonies that joined to form the US. An elected trade dispute council is all that’s needed.

    Should be a frontpage article on all main newspapers in the world……
