In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. – President Eisenhower, farewell speech from the White House
President Eisenhower, in his farewell speech from the White House warned the nation about the U.S. military-industrial complex. Since that time, the United States Government has become the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization.
The United States [military policy] has destroyed seven countries. The populations there are subject to ongoing continual violence either from the U.S. or these Jihadists or from the Islamic State. In Libya there’s various factions, no Government – just warlords fighting and nobody’s safe anywhere so the populations are getting out. You can’t live in that type of situation. – Dr. Paul Craig Roberts on the Shadow of Truth
Lost in the rivers of humanity that have been streaming out of Africa and the Middle East and flooding into Europe is the fact the U.S. military is responsible for this crisis. Not only has the U.S. destroyed several countries around the globe, the U.S. Government now appears to provoking Russia into a military conflict in both Ukraine and Syria that risks escalating into a nuclear war. Even Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski – two notorious warhawks – have both recently stated that the U.S. Government is pushing Russia too hard.
In fact Dr. Paul Craig Roberts now believes that the only way to avoid eventual nuclear war is a break-up of the EU and NATO. The EU countries exist politically, economically and strategically as vassal countries of the U.S. And the United States uses NATO as a “cover” to implement is unilateral implementation of dangerously aggressive military action all over the globe.
This policy is insane and the people running the policy are insane. The Shadow of Truth hosted Dr. Paul Craig Roberts in a two-part podcast which covers the current geopolitical risks facing the world as fomented by the U.S. and last week’s FOMC decision to leave zero percent interest rates in place. Part 1 is below and Part 2 will be available shortly:
