Paul Craig Roberts is right. He calls America "a lost land where nuclear weapons are in the hands of those who are concerned only with their own power."
"Washington is the enemy of the entire world and encompasses the largest concentration of evil on the planet." It's systematically destroying it one country at a time.
It's got oceans of blood on its hands. It's responsible for tens of millions of deaths. Its human rights record is by far the world's worst. It's unprincipled. It's unconscionable.
Its rap sheet includes diabolical crimes of war, against humanity and genocide. They persist worldwide. They're largely unreported.
Media scoundrels glorify America's wars. They're called liberating ones. Patriotism demands support, they say. Lawless aggression goes unmentioned. Death toll numbers, mass destruction, and nations laid waste aren't explained. It's standard managed news practice.
Post-9/11, America's Nuclear Policy Review asserted a preemptive first strike nuclear policy. The Bush administration's 2002 and 2006 National Security Strategies reaffirmed it.
In 2006, Iran was mentioned 16 times. Lies substituted for truth. It said "(w)e may face no greater challenge from a single country than Iran."
Post-9/11, America asserted sole right to use nuclear weapons preemptively. They target nuclear and non-nuclear states. In countries like Iran, they're for fortified sites able to withstand non-nuclear attacks.
America claims the right to do it in retaliation for nuclear, biological or chemical attacks, or in case of unexpected military developments whether or not they're threatening.
