Paul Craig Roberts Asks “Where Is The Shame?”

Donate

Written by Paul Craig Roberts; Originally appeared on paulcraigroberts.org

Now that the Trump, May, and Macron regimes have proven beyond all doubt that they are lawless war criminal regimes, what is next?

Will the Russian president and foreign minister continue to speak of “our Western partners” and seek common ground with proven lawless war criminals? What would that common ground be?

How can other governments accept the US, UK, and French governments that intentionally lied about a Russian chemical attack on the Skripals and about a Syrian chemical attack on Douma, risking a third world war, and then themselves attacking Syria on the basis of a transparent lie unsupported by any evidence? How exactly do you conduct diplomatic relations with war criminals?

You don’t. You put them on trial. Why aren’t Trump, May, and Macron on trial?

The reason is that the world has been conditioned, like Pavlov’s dogs, to expect and accept the West’s war crimes as ordinary common features of life. The West’s crimes are protected by precedents established by decades of failing to hold the West accountable. The West has squatters rights in committing unaccountable war crimes.

Stymied in the effort to overthrow Syria, Netanyahu is now focusing the Trump regime on renewing Washington’s conflict with Iran. Will Washington’s vassals continue to provide cover for Washington’s crimes, or are some of the Europeans beginning to understand that the risks they assume for Washington exceed the money that Washington pays them?

Where will Russia stand if Washington renews its assault on Iran?

Despite the air attacks carried out on its Syrian ally by the US, NATO, and Israel, the Russian government still has not found the decisiveness to sell Syria its S-300 air defense system. Syria intercepted 70% of the US missiles in the last attack using obsolete Soviet-era air defense systems. The S-300 would allow Syria to protect itself from air attack and thus reduce the chance of war resulting from Israeli and US attacks on Syria.

Russian indecisiveness combined with the rest of the world’s toleration of ongoing US war crimes suggests that more provocations will be orchestrated, that more lawless attacks will take place, and that eventually a fatal conflict will be brewed.

Think about it. The British are caught in the Skripal lie. Washington, the British, and the French are caught in the Douma chemical attack lie, and there are no consequences for those governments who orchestrated hoaxes and then used the hoaxes to justify their war crime.

How can it be that the American people are undisturbed by their government’s 17 years of wars based entirely on blatant lies? How can it be that the American people and the Evangelical churches are unmoved by the millions of innocent peoples in seven countries who have been murdered, maimed, orphaned, and displaced by the profit-driven US military/security complex and by the neoconservative ideology in service to Israel?

How can it be that the US media is as effective a propaganda ministry for Washington as the German press was for the Nazis?

How can it be that the European, Canadian, and Australian governments and the citizens of these countries are not ashamed of their participation in these never-ending crimes?

Where is India’s voice? China’s? South America’s?

Why is the world silent in the face of massive, long-term, ongoing war crimes?

Why does the Russian government think it can have a partnership with a war criminal regime? Why would Russia want such a shameful and demeaning association?

Where is Russia’s counterpart to NATO?

Where is there any determination to put a halt to the West’s criminality?

Why is the world content with Washington’s path to world war?

    unbelievable naiv article…right on spot but naive…speaking of european,austrailian governments and all others as if these countries are governed by citizens which ofcourse would increase policies and laws that would give the people in these countries a better living in prosperity and happiness and PEACE.
    But as u or anybody with eyes and ears, who can read and write and think, should know….all these mentioned governments are stooges..controlled by the the people who control the most important system on planet earth today.THE MONETARY SYSTEM….meaning the flow and input and output of money.and which people control this system??? the jews.now some may call them zionists, some call them freemasons, some call them elite, some call them illuminati.who gives a shit what name they have.
    That is the reason after centuries that russia, china etc.. is developing a monetary system away from the jewish system.Thats why all mainstrem and governments of the west are fighting against crypto currencies.
    Back to the questions why why why …they (the governments of mentioned countries) have been taken hostage practically…there is no way out anymore for them..the whole system in these countries , be it health system,defense,education etc.. have been corrupted in way were one can say.
    They have come to a point of no return.They are now in it to the bitter end.Who seriously believes, that a TRUE french,english,german,italian etc.. human, who represents his fellow brothers and sisters would ever allow the inflow of head chopping,raping, illeterate bastards into their home countries??no one.
    But after the holocaust hoax, the jews not only controlled the monetary sytem world wide, but now also the ever MORAL TRENDSETTER of the world.and we all are going to pay the price.

    Just an extraordinary self-criticism article. What is happening to us as a human being by just living with our comfort and let the rest of the world be destroyed for our own people ? Why has nobody done anything about the governments who have killed and destroyed other countries using lies ? Just looking the humanity from outside world…..THIS IS INCREDIBLE BEHAVIOR OF THIS ANIMALS SPECIES.

    Why is Mr. Roberts not using his right to bear arms and goes to Washington and removes the criminal regime?

  • Fifam

    Remember the sheeple charging into airports like minutemen to protest Trumps travel ban on countries Obama had been bombing for years. Or the million women who marched in home made “pussy hats” to protest Trump. Or last weeks march against the right to own a firearm. Next we should see a million men in hand knitted “vagina pants” demanding mandatory gender neutral bathrooms. They’ll smash up sexist urinals with pink sledge hammers and pee sitting down on the White House steps.

    “Why is the world content with Washington’s path to world war?”

    Seriously? Because they are f*cking scared : the anglozionist empire destroy anyone who dares to oppose/resist, 300 years of world conquest and global tyranny. Paul of all people should know how evil the empire really is.
