The Washington Post Won't Say What the World Knows

Yes, without America there would be no war in Ossetia and no war between Russia and its former constituent part. US ruling Elite went From Stupid to Moronic to Evil

By Paul Craig Roberts August 12, 2008

 “Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative.” John Stuart Mill Many years ago, during the 1970s if memory serves, neoconservative Irving Kristol, echoing John Stuart Mill, called his conservative party, the Republican Party, “the stupid party.”

Kristol was referring to the Republican’s inability to compete on the policy front. Jack Kemp and Ronald Reagan led the Republicans out of the wilderness, but now Republicans have reverted to the stupid party, or more precisely the moronic party.

Today, August 9, 2008, as I write, it is the “liberal” Washington Post that has written an editorial urging the US to go to war with Russia.

With its editorial, “Stopping Russia: the US and its allies must unite against Moscow’s war on Georgia,” the Washington Post has established a world record for the maximum number of lies in the minimum number of words.

Except for the Washington Post, the entire world knows that Georgia (the birthplace of Joseph Stalin, not Georgia USA) initiated the aggression that killed Russian peacekeepers and hundreds of civilians in South Ossetia, peacekeepers who were there with the blessing of Georgia and international agreements.

The true facts are available all over the world press. But the “liberal” Washington Post serves up the lie that Russia has attacked Georgia and conceivably plans to conquer all of Georgia. “This is a grave challenge to the United States and Europe,” thunders the Bush Regime’s mouthpiece, aka, “the liberal media.”

Thirsting for blood, the “liberal media” declares: “The United States and its NATO allies must together impose a price on Russia.” Here we see the combination of idiocy and delusion in one sentence. The United States has proved that it is incapable of occupying Iraq, much less Afghanistan. Russia has a large trade surplus. America’s NATO allies are dependent on Russian natural gas.

Yet the “liberal” Washington Post wants a bankrupt US and “its NATO allies” who are dependent on Russian energy “to impose a price on Russia” for defending its peacekeepers!

Seldom has the world seen such total insanity as the neoconservative Washington Post, a propaganda sheet as far from “liberal media” it is possible to be. Georgia was part of Old Russia and the Soviet Union for two centuries. After Soviet communism collapsed, the US taxpayer funded neoconservative National Endowment for Democracy broke every agreement that President Reagan had made with Gorbachev and began using US taxpayers’ money to rig and purchase elections in former constituent parts of the Russian/Soviet empire.

The Endowment for Democracy purchased Georgia as a US colony. The affront to Russia was extreme, but at the time Russia was weak. Oligarchs with outside money had grabbed control over Russian resources, and Russia was in dire straits and could not resist American imperialism.

Putin corrected the situation for Russia.

Now, using American weapons, Georgia for reasons yet to be revealed has violated its own agreement with Russia and attacked South Ossetia, killing in the process Russian peacekeepers. Vladimir Vasilyev, chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee for Security told the press: “The things that were happening in Kosovo, the things that were happening in Iraq – we are now following the same path. The further the situation unfolds, the more the world will understand that Georgia would never be able to do all this without America.”

---Yes, without America there would be no war in Ossetia and no war between Russia and its former constituent part.

---Without America there would be no war in Afghanistan. No war in Iraq.

---Without America there would not be 1.2 million dead Iraqis and 4 million displaced Iraqis. We have no idea of the toll on Afghan civilians, although women and children appear to be the prime targets of the US/NATO forces that are “bringing peace and freedom to Afghanistan.”

Recently, US Secretary of State Condi Rice said that the US government could not prevent an Israeli attack on Iran. Israel is an independent country, said the American Secretary of State. What an extraordinary lie.

israel cannot exist without American weapons and money. Israel cannot attack Iran without overflying Iraq, which the US air force can easily prevent. It is clear as day that the Bush Regime has given the green light to Israel to attack Iran so that the Bush Regime can rush to “Israel’s defense.” Meanwhile the “liberal” media is urging the US to get involved in a war between Russia and Georgia. The insanity will lead to the unloosening of nuclear weapons.

US ruling Elite went From Stupid to Moronic to Evil

We don't know the 1/2 of it yet

What do you suppose the other half might be?  Just curious.  Do you have any hunches?

Just watched Georgian Jewish US Elite educated President on France24 and that whole shit was made for TV, part of our normal programming.

Georgia means nothing to these Zio shitbags, so if that is true,  then why did they do it?

Opening day of the Chinese sports TV programming..........

American Girl on Fox News: “I was running from Georgian troops, I want to thank the Russian troops”

Georgia has attacked South Ossetia many times before.  Georgia does look like another israel - look at the dead.  Georgia - under 200 approx.  South Ossetia - 2000  approx.

Shades of israel and Lebanon 2006.  Shades of Palestine for 60 years plus.  

 Here's an interesting take on the oil - a piece from an article by Mark Almond - Counterpunch:

#000080">Worse still, western backing for "equip and train" programmes in Russia's backyard don't contribute to peace and stability if bombastic local leaders such as Saakashvili see them as a guarantee of support even in a crisis provoked by his own actions. He seems to have thought that the valuable oil pipeline passing through his territory, together with the Nato advisers intermingled with his troops, would prevent Russia reacting militarily to an incursion into South Ossetia. That calculation has proved disastrously wrong.

Still I have to wonder if the USA/israel was testing Russia's response.  If Russia did nothing or very little, I think the USA/israel would be encouraged to attack Iran. 

Or...maybe the usa/israel expected this from Russia.  They wanted Russia to respond to make Big Russia look so bad to attack little Georgia.  The presses are hot!  Russia is the pariah to Western Europe, Russia threatens the BTC pipeline - especially accused of bombing the pipeline.  Creepy, humanless Russia. 

The same idiocy with the big bad Arab countries: Syria, Jordan, Palestine, and Lebanon are a menace to little israel.

It is very complicated.  There's a good many reasons for this bloodshed done by Georgia, just like there are many reasons for israel pounding Lebanon and Palestine.  The caucasus are valuable strategic points for the big military complex.

And now look what is going on with Poland and the anti-missile agreement.

Thanks for that video, Joe.

I am sick of Russia and Germany being painted as monsters.  A lot of countries have been invaded by the CANCER.  I was listening to Ryan Dawson's interview with Scott Horton - his very good Russian history of the jewish oligarchs and how they bled Russia dry.

The Great Revealer at node 212 copied Ry's article for his post.

Ry Dawson's anti-neocon site with the pictures of billionaire jews - and they are quite young - they accumulated wealth very quickly.

We Goys should be happy! After all everyone knows that Lebonon won the war.  Come on guys! Stop it! ALL THIS STUFF IS PROPAGANDA.  WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS GOING ON.

preparation for WWIII, thats whats going on!!!

It is a play full of miracle, mystery and authority.  A disinterested look would reveal that an emotional super structure is being created simply to sell some future calamity in some psychologically acceptable manor.  Beyond that we can not know anything. Therefore, all the reports from the experts are fabrications.  A waste of time. A fable spun to placate the minds of children.  The technique of tyranny is to create a lie and then have people debate the truth value of that lie.

Your sarcasm is not cute.

Allow me  to introduce you to the nemesis of your beliefs:

I have had an epiphany! This is not sarcasm but rather a deeper understanding of Reality- Nay, the nature of our current understanding of History.

Right on, Latin. =)

But here we are.  :)
