The New York Times beating drums of war

Dr Paul Craig Roberts

Professor Michel Chossudovsky is the author of many important books. His latest is The Globalization of War: America’s “Long War” against Humanity.

Chossudovsky shows that Washington has globalized war while the US president is presented as a global peace-maker, complete with the Nobel Peace Prize.

Washington has military deployed in 150 countries, has the world divided up into six US military commands and has a global strike plan that includes space operations. Nuclear weapons are part of the global strike plan and have been elevated for use in a pre-emptive first strike, a dangerous departure from their Cold War role.

America’s militarization includes military armament for local police for use against the domestic population and military coercion of sovereign countries in behalf of US economic imperialism.

One consequence is the likelihood of nuclear war. Another consequence is the criminalization of US foreign policy. War crimes are the result. These are not the war crimes of individual rogue actors but war crimes institutionalized in established guidelines and procedures. “What distinguishes the Bush and Obama administrations,” Chossudovsky writes, “is that the concentration camps, targeted assassinations and torture chambers are now openly considered as legitimate forms of intervention, which sustain ‘the global war on terrorism’ and support the spread of ‘Western democracy.’”

Chossudovsky points out that the ability of US citizens to protest and resist the transformation of their country into a militarist police state is limited. Washington and the compliant foundations now fund the dissent movement in order to control it. He quotes Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman about manufacturing consent. He lets Paul Kivel describe how funding of dissent by the elite results in the co-option of grassroots community leadership. The same thing is happening to environmental organizations. Black Americans also have lost their leaders to the elite’s money and ability to bestow position and emoluments.

Chossudovsky notes that progressive, left-wing, and anti-war groups have endorsed the “war on terror” and uncritically accept the official 9/11 story, which provides the basis for Washington’s wars.

Having accepted the lies, there is no basis for protest. Thus its absence.

As Professor Stephen Cohen has observed, dissent has disappeared from American foreign policy discussion. In place of dissent there is exhortation to more war. A good example is today’s (March 26, 2015) op-ed in the New York Times by neoconservative John R. Bolton, US ambassador to the UN during the George W. Bush regime.

Bolton calls for bombing Iran. Anything short of a military attack on Iran, Bolton says, has “an air of unreality” and will guarantee that Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Turkey will also develop nuclear weapons in order to protect themselves from Iran. According to Bolton, the Israeli and American nuclear arsenals are not threatening, but Iran’s would be.

Of course, there is no evidence that Iran has a nuclear weapons program, but Bolton asserts it anyway. Moreover, Bolton manages to overlook that the agreement being worked out with Iran halts the Iranian enrichment program far below the level necessary for nuclear weapons. Bolton’s belief that Iran would be able to hide a weapons program if permitted to have nuclear energy is unsubstantiated. It is merely an implausible assertion.

The neoconservatives constitute a war lobby. When one war doesn’t work, they want another. They have an ever expanding war list. Remember, the neoconservatives are the ones who promised us a 3-week “cakewalk” Iraq war costing $70 billion and paid for by Iraq oil revenues. After 8 years of war costing a minimum of $3,000 billion paid for by US taxpayers, the US gave up and withdrew. Today terrorists are carving a new country out of parts of Syria and Iraq.

It is now a known fact that the neocon Bush regime’s Iraq war was totally based on lies, just as is every other neocon war and the current drive for war with Russia and Iran. Despite their record of lies and failure, the neocons still control US foreign policy, and neocon Nuland is busy at work fomenting “color revolutions” or coups in the former Soviet republics of Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan.

Without the support of the New York Times, the neocons could not have got the Iraq War going. Now the New York Times, faithful to the neocons but faithless to the American people, is helping the neocons get a war going with Iran and Russia.

I have friends who are college presidents who still read and believe the New York Times. The wars with Iran and Russia that the New York Times is encouraging will be much more dangerous than the wars with Iraq and Afghanistan. Humanity might not survive them.

Strange “Symptoms” People Are Experiencing Worldwide

It has recently been suggested that people from all around the globe have been reporting weird feelings and symptoms.

Very Weird Symptoms People Around The Globe Are Experiencing

People from every walk of life have talked about having some strange complaints and symptoms on and off, which sometimes leaves them wondering if they have lost their minds. The symptoms are said to go away for weeks at a time after subsiding and then they reoccur, seemingly in correlation with solar and cosmic activity and the readiness of the individual to move onto the next level.

It is said that huge energetic adjustments have taken place around the globe each year and that Planet Earth is going through a change. Solar activity that is intensified has influenced the magnetic field of the Earth and of every individual. Below are the symptoms that numerous people all over the world have reported.

Cravings For Sugar Or Chocolate

Many people get sudden cravings to eat chocolate or sugar and it is thought that perhaps the craving comes from parasites. More people than thought have some type of parasite. Oregano oil is thought to help with Candida along with parasite activity. Antibiotics can help to destroy a person’s immunity for a couple of years after just a few uses but oregano oil is a much safer and natural antibiotic. People take probiotics following oregano oil to make sure that the bacteria in their stomach do not die.

Eating Patterns That Are Not Familiar

A loss of appetite along with not being able to figure out what to eat is said to be a consequence of living in a supermarket world and the answer is to eat food that is healthier. Learning to cook something that is new and finding out what minerals and vitamins are needed help.

Strange Patterns Of Sleep, Pressure, And Pain In The Head

Thanks to things such as radiation, cell phone towers and smart meters in the homes people have been at risk of developing insomnia and headaches.

Strange Sounds Being Heard

Many people have said that they have heard strange sounds and these have included metallic, buzzing or mechanical sounds. Some people have also said that this is down to electronics, cell phone towers, and smart meters. However, some have said that it is more spiritual.

Sensitivity That Is Heightened

Some people have reported that they have a sensitivity that has been heightened. Anyone thinking this might have mercury poisoning, more so if they have had silver-mercury amalgam fillings at the dentist.

Sense Of Smell That Has Been Intensified

Some people have said that their sense of smell has been intensified but this is not linked to something negative and instead it sounds more spiritual or a human health power.

Technology That Behaves Strangely When Touched

Some people have said that technology acts strangely when it is touched. Some people think that computer updates affect certain devices and cause them to become slower and of course, Apple has slowed down their older iPhones.

Having An Awareness Of Waves Produced By Technology

Some people say that they are aware of the waves that are produced by technology but it is not awareness of technology that produces radiation, but that it is radiating people that bring about the symptoms.

Being Out Of Focus

Some have said that they feel being visually out of focus as if they are in a movie. Perhaps staring at a computer screen for many hours each day is the culprit. However, it could be possible that we are all living in a computer simulation.

Bad Coordination Or Being Out Of Balance

Some people say that they feel out of balance or they have suffered from bad coordination and many put the blame on cell phone towers or smart meters.

Waves Of Overlapping, Conflicting Or Intense Emotions

People can consume endocrine disrupting chemicals and mercury or BPA can cause people to have waves of overlapping, conflicting or intense emotions due to it. On the other hand, astrology has been said to be the blame for this feeling as the planets have an effect on people.

Manifestation Of Thoughts Into Reality

Some people have had instant manifestation that becomes reality. For instance, they think about a word and straight away hear someone say that word. Many believe it to be coincidence but it happens far too often for it to be that.

Infertility

People who know that food has chemicals, pesticides and carcinogenic preservatives believe that DNA that has been modified can cause infertility and many blame this when experiencing symptoms that are strange.

Spraying The Skies With Materials

People know that the sky is sprayed with materials that include barium and aluminum and they often say that they straight after seeing this they feel ill. Some say that they are being forced to ingest chemicals they don’t want to ingest and breathe air that is toxic and it makes them ill.
