Paul Craig Roberts: The World Will Not Surive the American Neoconservatives’ Doctrine of US World Hegemony

Donate

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

The government of the United States is clearly in demonic hands. We are overflowing with proof. Take today (2-2-18) for example. A report from the House Intelligence Committee was released that is proof that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice (sic), and the Democratic National Committee are engaged in a conspiracy against American democracy and the President of the United States with the full support of the presstitute media.

As if that is not enough, also released today is the Pentagon’s new Nuclear Posture Review. A nuclear posture review specifies a country’s attitude toward nuclear weapons and their use. In past posture reviews, nuclear weapons were regarded as unusable except in retaliation for a nuclear attack. The assumption was that no one would use them. There was always the possibility that false warnings of incoming ICBMs would result in the nuclear button being pushed, thus setting off Armageddon. There were many false warnings during the Cold War. President Ronald Reagan was very concerned about a false warning resulting in mass death and destruction. This is why his principal goal was to end the Cold War, which he succeeded in doing. It did not take successor governments long to resurrect the Cold War.

Paul Craig Roberts: The World Will Not Surive the American Neoconservatives’ Doctrine of US World Hegemony

The new US nuclear posture is a reckless, irresponsible, and destabilizing departure from the previous attitude toward nuclear weapons. The use of even a small part of the existing arsenal of the United States would be sufficient to destroy life on earth. Yet, the posture review calls for more weapons, speaks of nuclear weapons as “usable,” and justifies their use in First Strikes even against countries that do not have nuclear weapons.

This is an insane escalation. It tells every country that the US government believes in the first use of nuclear weapons against any and every country. Nuclear powers such as Russia and China must see this to be a massive increase in the threat level from the United States. Those responsible for this document should be committed to insane aslyums, not left in policy positions where they can put it into action.

President Trump is being blamed for the aggressive US nuclear posture announced today. However, the document is a neoconservative product. Trump, perhaps, could have prevented the document’s release, but under pressure as he is by the accusation that he conspired with Putin to steal the US presidential election from Hillary, Trump cannot afford to antagonize the neoconized Pentagon.

The neoconservatives are a small group of conspirators. Most of the neoconservatives are Jews allied with Israel. Some are dual-citizens. They created an ideology of American world hegemony, specifying that the chief goal of US foreign policy is to prevent the rise of any other power that could serve as a constraint on US unilateralism. As neoconservatives control US foreign policy, this explains US hostility toward Russia and China and also the neoconservatives’ use of the US military to remove governments in the Middle East regarded by Israel as obstacles to Israeli expansion. For two decades the US has been fighting wars for Israel in the Middle East. This fact proves the power and influence of the insane neoconservatives. It is certain that people as insane as the neoconservatives would launch a nuclear attack on Russia and China. The Russian and Chinese governments seem to be completely unaware of the threat that the neoconservatives pose to them. I have never experienced in my interviews with Russians and Chinese any awareness of the neoconservative ideology. Possibly, it is too insane for them to grasp.

Ideologues such as the neoconservatives are not fact-based. They are chasing their dream of world hegemony. Russia and China are in the way of this hegemony. Having learned the limits of US conventional military power—after 16 years the US “superpower” has been unable to defeat a few thousand lightly armed Taliban in Afghanistan—the neoconservatives know that conventional invasions of Russia or China would lead to the total defeat of US forces. Therefore, the neoconservatives have elevated nuclear weapons to a First Strike, usable, arsenal that in the neoconservative dream of world hegemony can be used to destroy Russia and China.

Ideologues who divorce themselves from the facts create a virtual world for themselves. Their belief in their ideology blinds them to the risks for themselves and others that they impose on the world.

It is clear enough that without the utterly corrupt Obama Department of Justice (sic) and FBI, the utterly corrupt Clinton-controlled Democratic National Committee, and the utterly corrupt American and European presstitute media working to destroy Trump’s presidency by framing him up as “a Russian agent,” President Trump, understanding that the Pentagon’s posture review would worsen, not normalize, relations with Russia, would have deep-sixed the demonic document that threatens all life on earth.

Thanks to the American liberal/progressive/left, the entirely of the world is faced with a far more likely nuclear demise than ever threatened us during the Cold War with the Soviet Union.

By its collaboration with the military/security complex and the corrupt Hillary DNC, the liberal/progressive/left has forever discredited itself. It is now seen by every thinking person worldwide as an insane propaganda ministry for the neoconservatives’ plan to use nuclear weapons to eliminate constraints on US unilateralism. The liberal/progressive/left has endorsed “hegemony or death.”

They will get death. For all of us.

    Trump can’t do anything…. in the states it’s the Deep State that rules…. no man Good or Bad can change policies there alone….. Neutralise any threats these AngloZioNazis can pose, because these idiots would even Nuke their own citizens. Arrest these NeoCons! One by One…. Convict them for High treason in Nuremberg II

  • as

    Meanwhile we have here rednecks military worshippers who believed that if they fired off a nuke or two there’s no chances there’s mirror response of them. Europe ? They weren’t even aware what they got themselves into. Zombies all of those crazy politicians.

  • MichaH

    In my opinion, the article is pretty worthless despite some good points. In general, he mixes subject areas, thereby losing the content structure and clarity. But to address a few key issues that I think are debatable or incorrect.

    1. Ronald Reagan, pictured as the rational-thinking peacemaker? No thanks.
    2. Ideologies are never fact-based, it is their core to orient life according to ideology and not ideology to life.
    3.The US military doctrine, anyone can read openly on the Ministry of Defense webpage, during the
    years of Bush and Obama, has slightly changed, has always made possible the possibility of a preventive first strike or singular attack with nuclear weapons against if real or in the future threats theoretically possible. Can anyone check for themselves there.
    4. Russia and China are not aware of the Neoconservative imperialists? No thanks.
    The complaints about missile defense are a good example of the possibility that nuclear weapons could be used. An American study from last year estimated that in a US-Russia nuclear strike, after intercepting and so on, 50 warheads would still reach the US and around 150 the Russian territory.
    5. The Jews, the Jews, Jews, Jews, jewy jewish Jews … last week, a cat was hit near my doorstep by a car and fatally wounded. Who is responsible for that? Right, the JEWS.

    • as

      1. Ronald Reagan is very rational if compared to nowadays politicians, Congressman/woman, and diplomats in the US who by now blatantly profit driven.

      3. Not so much into a nuclear doom escalation back then.

      5. As for the jews it really depends on personal experience. Never see jews going home as they put it to avoid a criminal charge against them ? Sure there’s more non extradition country other than Israel but Israel (and jews) alone is protected from criticism by the law in not so specific anti Semitic law.
      And really we haven’t even look at it from let’s see a Palestinians point of view ?

    • John Mason

      Roberts seems to sympathize with Trump but one can see that Trump is part and parcel of the ‘swamp’ and if Trump was concerned about the destruction of the world he would gladly endanger his position as POTUS to prevent it, any man would but not Trump.

    • Cyriak Papasissis

      Good points. The Jewish affiliation of most , if not all , of the Neocon armchair strategists is a bit overblown. It is not their Jewishness that makes them dangerous . It is their membership in a close-knit Cabal , acting as a undercover arm of an even deeper financial dragnet that envelops the planet. Very well paid influence agents they are , selling smoke & mirrors to the political illiterate class of a dysfunctioning ”democracy”. Their Jewish affiliation serves them well as a measure of loyalty to the owners of the money behind the dragnet. As far as the American liberal/progressive/left is concerned , firstly it is a misnomer. Secondly they essentially try to preserve their high living level of spending , in the face of the impending collapse , the progressing shrinking of the middle-class & the destruction of their sources of income. They sense that their way of financing their living becomes progressively untenable in a bubbles-economy, and their reflex of flight-or-fight comes into being under the skin.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Jews have often been despised for over 2000 years for what they do.
      I fully appreciate that there are Jews who are against what is being done in Palestine for instance though and there will always been such people during the 2000 years +.

        Maybe that is why the Israelis are in panic mode, if the US falls, can you imagine what the World would do first ?.

          • You can call me Al

            LOL.

    • whatsmolly

      Your points can be debated as well but I agree with some, biggest problem I see is that all but 1 Republican senator voted to extend sanctions on Russia, alot of em like on fox will deny Trump’s involvement but will still bash Russia as always being nefarious and never ever ever being anything other than a threat to the very way of life. Call it what you will but you surely must understand that to get Congress to vote with 99% approval to continue sanctions over something they know is fake then there has to be someone, some entity that’s not in view, a force that can magically make all of Congress unite on any issue. Worry not my young American they will still cry about bathrooms and gun rights and abortions but you don’t have to be a genius to understand the clear answer here is lobbying, and out biggest foreign lobby’s are loyal to non other than Israel. And they got so good at this that half the American population is in one extremist camp and the other half is in the other extremist camp but they are both shit, while 90% of the population argues about useless shit no one wants to take a look at the specific goals they never disagree on because that’s the real agenda. Goals , not just preserving Israel but giving them the money they put back into lobbying to influence US policy on issues like Syria, Iran, Lebanon, China and russia. The jews and the US are in world of their own and the fact is they dumbed down the American population so bad even fully educated adults will look at evidence and just say “no” because it’s not good for the specific political party they like. And any stupid or successfully lied to majority will inherently subvert the opinion of the thinking few, and in America we got 2 dumb ass majorities who actually think they fight for different goals.

    • Turbofan

      You see a lot of analyst try to rationalize US foreign policy and I think thats where the problem begins. Its not rational nor logical. America is a dying empire and like old lions they get very fierce towards the end.

        You aren’t very funny and tell terrible Jewish jokes.

        You cry about there being a bias yet you are the one being your stereo typical free speech and open debate opponent with your own fears and phobias being pushed as the norm, seems you are the one with a disconnect problem with reality .

        • Julian

          Your comment about my Jewish jokes is hurtful. As comedians, we try very hard to come up with good material. You could at least give constructive criticism. Also, you can’t sense timing when it is written.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            George Carlin was a master joke teller and he put a lot of political satire in his jokes , Seinfeld jokes are like listening to a performing seal always the bad dat baa in it seemingly forced. That standby joke telling has lost it’s appeal it seems to contrived and not natural it will get a guffaw and that’s about it. Modern day Joke telling still relies on story telling and we all listen stories to hear the punchlines as it develops to give the story it’s resonance within the audience.

  • John Mason

    One can round up all the neocons and ship them off to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and have them disappear. Would solve a lot of problems and who really cares if some are innocent, there are plenty of innocents in US jails right now.

    • You can call me Al

      But those same neocons are probably the ones receiving rent from Guantanamo Bay. Now that would be funny as they will be so confused in “do we get banged up for years” or “do we make more shekels” ? ….oh vey !!

      • John Mason

        Very witty reply….I am amused.

  • FlorianGeyer

    I would think that the new nuclear posture of the use of such weapons is also to ‘allow’ Israel to use their nuclear arsenal in the same way in Lebanon or Iran for example.

    • as

      Those kind of thinking relying on wishful scenario that the other side did not responds with similarly devastating response or even escalating them.
      Though i can imagines Israel do use nuclear wmd i can’t see it’s anytime near since the US neocons still able to faithfully do it’s duty.

  • Freespirit

    Somewhat Correct but VERY UNDERSTATED, Paul

    There are NOT “some” DUAL: CITIZEN Israeli Jews in Congress.There ARE 200 plus or minus. The REPUBLIC is never mentioned anymore and instead one, like yourself referred to, what exists, as a “Democracy’

    The Republic was a Republic NOT a Democracy and “these united States” have been replaced, in 1871 , by UNITED STATES of AMERICA, A Corporation, controlled by those same Ashkenazi ZIONIST Jews.

    You are too informed NOT to mention that Paul, so my question is WHY?

    No President since 1871 has been a President FOR the Republic .They have all been, including Trump, a President OF the Corporation and have no allegiance to the REPUBLIC but do SWEAR Allegiance to the CORPORATION – the UNITED STATES of AMERICA !

    You and other Political writers never mention those “minor” details and…….

    Therein lies the problem

    • Merijn

      The United States were founded by the Knights Templars & their Zionist Brothers (what we know as “the Cabal”… when they had installed their “System” Columbus could officially “discover” America…… the States is still a “Colony” of the English Crown. After Benjamin Franklin returned from his visit to England he told Americans they were FREE!!! He Lied….. he made an agreement with the Crown ….. they still pay her a loOt o’ TaxX……..funny story isn’t it. History can be tricky.

      • Freespirit

        I’m aware and thanks for your input .Here to finish and ADD TO what you say:

        The HIDDEN and DARK SECRETS of SUPREMACY of Ancient Scientists. Politicians and Mathematicians. They made “Johnny-come-lately” Zionists nothing but Amateurs and COPY CATS, albeit, seemingly SUCCESSFUL Amateur “Copy Cats”: https://youtu.be/m7NXfuMhIwc

        From this you will NOW understand why the REPUBLIC is finished and will only arise again from VIOLENCE against what is called Government, as advocated for in the Constitution( violence against tyranny), under the very conditions we have today.

        The problem is. today, we are surrounded by COWARDS who lack INTEGRITY

    These neocons are not suicidal.The only other explanation is that they are convinced that they will survive in the case of a nuclear war that they begin. I hope that China and Russia have a policy that makes it clear that in the event of a US first strike and faced with defeat that they should use all nukes at their disposal and ensure nothing and i mean nothing survives on planet earth.These demons cannot be allowed to destroy the earth and then believe they will rise from the ashes.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Larry Silverstein could well set up a pre-arranged trust that will buy the Earth at a cheap price that takes into account war damage after Armageddon. :)

  • hvaiallverden

    Yeah, PCR, its like staring into an cannon, and you know the rat with the fire stick is an raving lunatic, of course, the outcome is uncertain, in an world where the rats brags about how big matchsticks they have standing in an ocean of high octane petrol.
    And the even worse is how Trumpstein makes deals, yeah, reminds me about the Kosher Nostra, aka the Mafia, nothing else, not sophisticated or anything, only brute force, the biggus dickus doctrine.

    Yeah, the first thing Trumpstein did was to bomb another country, yeah, while whining about walls, isnt build fast against refugees etc, but bombs the shait of others, creating ever more refugees etc, to flow our lands, and somehow, by some obscure reason, Trump is an angel, yeah, innocent, dumb, etc, witch I dont believe for an second, but what I do believe in, is actions, on the ground, and there both the previous lying rotten bastard is been replaced with another rotten bastard, and do notice I dont give an rats ass about Race, nor religion, etc, other than follow the deeds, not the words, witch means nothing this days, and if so, what initially was said is berried in an avalanche of bullshit.

    To me, Trump lost it, I liked what I saw in the beginning, the under dog, nice touch by the way, and we all went in for it, to only excuse, is and was the choice, one freak or the other, we got freaks never the less and when an General is named Mad Dog, and have shown ignorance at levels I find remarkable because I think they are simply stupid, really dumb, idiot savants as I label them incl Trumpstein.
    The ISISraeli 6f+ whore, I know we are f….. what that eventually will lead to, is more uncertain, but the Middle east, the Arab nations will all go first, thats where the battle line is right now, I only hope the Koreans sees this, because, Korea, the Wankees are insane, and untrustworthy and lies about everything all the time, incl their own MSM, the freak show of the Russian Piss-gate is an side show I dont know much about because I know this is pure theater, when the goals haven’t change, but is widening and escalating, under the cover of an massive wall of bullshit and an shit show I havent seen for years, total fake, period and I dont trust Trumpstein for an second, little on the rest, but compared to Trumpstein, on another level, the Wankees are insane.
    And while a lot this days is blamed on this idiot, witch I know its not His doing, but an legacy from the previous bastard in charge, He still runs the Army as an King, bow or die, huh, what an gooood deal.

    The second, is economy, well, the only thing there is that the printing press have gone into warp drive, and when the scums in the Bank of International Scammers in Basel, the only place on earth that IO want to nuke, nuke them and we will have peace on earth.
    Please, just a tiny one.
    If not, they will enslave us, for eternity, the only enemy of worth is them, the rest is just petty whores, runs erants for the top of the Scam chain for an fist full of Shekels, and some shining toys, aka Greed, the death to us all.
    I am not pessimistic of nature, but the truth is ugly, thats the only thing I know for sure, all wars are bankers wars, never ever forget that.
    Hang em all.

    peace

    PS: but I can, any moment, my front door smashed or kicked in/out, 5/6/7 people, strampling in and do whatever they want, and hammer an MP5 smacked in between my own eyes, because I smoke, hashish or cannabis, yeah, nasty and naughty people, right, but those that murders millions is hailed on the news, every day now.

    Dunak, dunka.

    Also the world will not survive if they don’t figure out that (((American Neoconservative))) doctrine of US world hegemony is simply a modern application of the ancient Satanic Jewish Talmud.

  • 911psyops

    No US citizens should join their army, navy or air force. If the neocons wants war let them and thier sons and daughters go fight those wars. Trump dodged the draft 5 times and none of his children has served in the military, they should lead by example. US citizens should form local militias to defend their country, don’t join the US military you only fight for Israel and the Corporations

    I’ve been saying this for months and agree completely with PCR. These nut cases are simply living out their Satanic Talmud rabbinical ideology of Jew supremacy over sub human inferior non Jews. Judaism is an evil pedophile mass rape cult that should be outlawed to dejudify the planet to get this problem corrected.

      You are kidding. Prove it?
      Anti Semitism? You conflate anti Semitism and anti Zionism….Have you forgotten that the historical anti Semites are now “Christian” Zionists. Israel now collaborates with Ukrainian Nazis giving them military training.

      • Julian

        Are you asking for “proof” that the Southfront adopts a pro-Russian/Putin stance? Have you read anything by “the Saker”?

        If you are referring to the fact that the Kremlin regime is a kleptocracy, take a look at the cabal of Oligarchs surrounding Putin—they made their obscene fortunes by privatizing the public resources of the former USSR. That is the social layer Putin represents.

        In terms of the site’s antisemitism; this notion that a Jewish cabal is dictating the course of world events stretches back to the times of the Tsar. It was one of Hitler’s paranoid obsessions, and is still espoused by Pan-Slavic nationalists and White Supremicist groups, among many, many others.

        Obviously Zionism (a close cousin of fascism) is repulsive and Israel exerts intense pressure on Washington’s foreign policy. And yes, there are Jews among the neo-cons, as there are blacks, catholics, protestants, men, women, blah blah blah.

        The American ruling class as a whole doesn’t give a damn about the foundational ideas of Zionism(or Christianity); it is just a useful construct for advancing the goal of American hegemony. The same could probably be said for many of Israel’s politicians, who cynically use the framework of Zionism to whip up support for their policy of apartheid and corruption.
