Paul Craig Roberts

Florida residents from the eastern part of Panama City Beach to Apalachicola now know what a war zone is like. 750,000 people are without power and without water. Thousands of homes and commercial structures no longer exist. Mexico Beach has been more or less wiped off the face of the earth. Many areas are still inaccessible. Many people are still trapped in place because of debris and downed trees across roads.

Families searching for missing family members are at times obstructed by police trying to keep looters and gawkers out of the area and trying to save what little traffic capacity there is for emergency and repair crews. It is difficult to image people so lacking in humanity that they go to loot what little remains of the property of such damaged people.

But perhaps it is not difficult to image such people.

Perhaps such people have been running US foreign policy since the Clinton regime. If you look at these photos of the damage:
https://weather.com/safety/hurricane/news/2018-10-09-hurricane-michael-photos, you will have an idea of the damage “our” government acting in “our” name has inflicted on eight countries since the Clinton regime: Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, and the ongoing atrocity in Yemen. Anyone looking at the devastation of the Florida panhandle from Panama City to Apalachicola could think they are looking at the work of Dick Cheney and his Zionist neocon warmongers that devastated the Middle East and North Africa…

Why is it that the liberal-progressive-left can get so upset about an alleged attempted rape 30 or 40 years ago but accept without protest Washington’s destruction of the lives, prospects, and infrastructure of millions of peoples in eight countries? All of the immigrants about which Trump complains are people fleeing from America’s wars on their countries. If America and Europe do not want refugees, why do they engage in wars that produce refugees?

Is this simple question beyond the intelligence of Western politicians?…

Do Americans understand that American hegemony means that no country is permitted to be sovereign?

No, of course, they don’t. The presstitute media doesn’t tell them.
Between the flag-wavers and the Democratic Party’s Identity Politics there is massive ignorance. A war with Russia and China is national suicide. A war with Iran is regional suicide. We need a government that understands this.

Be seeing you
