This pretty much sums up why deluded, propagandized Americans are so useless, resulting from their media brainwashing. Everyone should know all this, already. It’s the modern history we just lived through. But they don’t. Americans are largely a gaggle of “useful idiots” who have zero interest in reality:

Paul Craig Roberts:

The Coup Against Truth

For several years Russia and her president have experienced endless demonization. The Russians know that Georgia’s invasion of South Ossetia (done while Putin was at the Beijing Olympics) was a Washington provocation. The Russians know that Washington’s coup in Ukraine (done while Putin was at the Sochi Olympics) was a provocation aimed at seizing Russia’s Black Sea naval base in Crimea and cutting Russia off from the Mediterranean. The Russians know that Washington knows that the charges that Russia hacked Hillary’s emails and the US presidential election are lies. The Russians know that the “Russian threat” created by Washington is a lie along with all of its permutations, such as an impending Russian invasion of Poland and the Baltics. The Russians understand that US ABM bases on Russia’s borders are provocations, as are NATO military exercises on Russia’s borders and in the Black Sea.

Hillary’s War Crime — Paul Craig Roberts

Don’t believe the apologists for state crimes, the shameless propagandists who tell you to look elsewhere and to ignore paradigm-changing events. The JFK assassination was important, relevant to today, and a criminal conspiracy executed by elements of the US “deep state.” And they got away with it because… “sheeple.” Just like they got away with 9/11, with wars of aggression on Iraq, Libya, Syria, with systematic torture in “black site” gulags, with drug smuggling from their Contras and from Indochina before.

They get away with it because the American people are ignorant assholes who seem to prefer life that way.

Police-Brutality

 

Paul Craig Roberts asks:

Can morality be resurrected?

Even Abby Martin and Glenn Greenwald screwed up the Ukraine / Russia story.

There has been no Russian “invasion” of Crimea, at all, just as there were no Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq, just as there was no policy of rape in Libya, just as there were no babies thrown out of incubators in 1990, just as the government of Syria launched no gas attacks against its own people.

Paul Craig Roberts sets the record straight:

The fact of the matter is that those 16,000 Russian troops have been in Crimea since the 1990s. Under the Russian-Ukrainian agreement, Russia has the right to base 25,000 troops in Crimea.

…No such dispatch has occurred. Putin has been granted authority by the Russian Duma to send troops to Ukraine, but Putin has stated publicly that sending troops would be a last resort to protect Crimean Russians from invasions by the ultra-nationalist neo-nazis who stole Washington’s coup and established themselves as the power in Kiev and western Ukraine.

…In an intercepted telephone call between EU foreign affairs minister Catherine Ashton and Estonian foreign affairs minister Urmas Paet who had just returned from Kiev, Paet reports: “There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovych, but it was somebody from the new coalition.” Paet goes on to report that “all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides . . . and it’s really disturbing that now the new coalition, that they don’t want to investigate what exactly happened.”

US and NATO sponsored uprisings in Ukraine have exploded into violence and arson.  Mother Jones shows its true colors by ignoring the Western covert role in the violence, and the US record in causing mischief across the region.

So-called “alternative media” in the US, connected to shady foundation funding, continually press the empire’s geoppolitical agenda.

Why Kiev Is Burning, Explained

Paul Craig Roberts responds:

As I reported on February 12, “Washington Orchestrated Protests Are Destabilizing Ukraine.” Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, a rabid Russophobe and neoconservative warmonger, told the National Press Club last December that the US has “invested” $5 billion in organizing a network to achieve US goals in Ukraine in order to give “Ukraine the future it deserves.” Nuland is the Obama regime official who was caught red-handed naming the members of the Ukrainian government Washington intends to impose on the Ukrainian people once the paid protesters have unseated the current elected and independent government.

Empire is covert as well as overt.

The Failure Of Laissez Faire Capitalism And Economic Dissolution of the West 

I don’t always agree with Roberts (especially concerning the Reagan legacy); however, he often make a lot of sense economically and in defense of civil liberties.

“In the late 20th century and early 21st century, governments in the US and Great Britain chafed under the requirement that government, like the people, is ruled by law and took steps to free government from accountability to law.

Appleton says that the result is a “tectonic shift in the relationship between the state and the citizen.” Citizens of the US and UK are once again without the protection of law and subject to arbitrary arrests and indictments or to indefinite detention in the absence of indictments.

In the US, citizens can be detained indefinitely and even executed without due process of law. There is no basis in the US Constitution for these asserted powers. The unconstitutional powers exist only because Congress, the judiciary and the American people have accepted the lie that the loss of civil liberty is the price paid for protection against terrorists.

In a very short time the raw power of the state has been resurrected. Most Americans are oblivious to this outcome. As long as government is imprisoning and killing without trials demonized individuals whom Americans have been propagandized to fear, Americans approve. Americans do not understand that a point is reached when demonization becomes unnecessary and that precedents have been established that revoke the Bill of Rights.”
