'Nuclear war our likely future': Russia & China won't accept US hegemony, Reagan official warns
'Nuclear war our likely future': Russia & China won't accept US hegemony, Reagan official warns

Published time: May 13, 2015 10:13

The White House is determined to block the rise of the key nuclear-armed nations, Russia and China, neither of whom will join the "world’s acceptance of Washington’s hegemony," says head of the Institute for Political Economy, Paul Craig Roberts.

The former US assistant secretary of the Treasury for economic policy, Dr Paul Craig Roberts, has written on his blog that Beijing is currently "confronted with the Pivot to Asia and the construction of new US naval and air bases to ensure Washington’s control of the South China Sea, now defined as an area of American National Interests."

Roberts writes that Washington’s commitment to contain Russia is the reason “for the crisis that Washington has created in Ukraine and for its use as anti-Russian propaganda.”

The author of several books, "How America Was Lost" among the latest titles, says that US "aggression and blatant propaganda have convinced Russia and China that Washington intends war, and this realization has drawn the two countries into a strategic alliance."

Dr Roberts believes that neither Russia, nor China will meanwhile accept the so-called "vassalage status accepted by the UK, Germany, France and the rest of Europe, Canada, Japan and Australia." According to the political analyst, the "price of world peace is the world’s acceptance of Washington’s hegemony."

"On the foreign policy front, the hubris and arrogance of America’s self-image as the 'exceptional, indispensable' country with hegemonic rights over other countries means that the world is primed for war," Roberts writes.

He gives a gloomy political forecast in his column saying that "unless the dollar and with it US power collapses or Europe finds the courage to break with Washington and to pursue an independent foreign policy, saying good-bye to NATO, nuclear war is our likely future."

Fuck 'em.

They want us to fail more than they want to achieve.

Most of the economic angling they do is to knock the U.S. off it's axis.
Problem is,if the U.S. goes down we take the rest of you mother fuckers with us. Not because we choose to but because most of the world depends on the U.S. economy.

It's an Anglo-American world. They better get used to it. This prize is for us and our British cousins.

No one would listed to 'Paul Craig Roberts' if he had not had a brief, less than one year, stint as an assistant... got that assistant, U.S. Secretary at the US Treasury.

Not that he is not a very well educated, intelligent and accomplished individual -- on economics -- but people with Phd's are a dime a dozen and come in all fields, and we are lucky enough not to have to deal with their dribble on a weekly basis.

But PCR does not want to stick to his area of expertise -- he wants to play expert on everything, even nuclear war. and claim expertise based on his brief stint as an assistant secretary at the US Treasury.

I used to be the vice-Director of the American Institute of Chemists. I have never even taken a course in Chemistry outside the one I got a D in Jr. High. So perhaps I should start proclaiming my past title in my sub-title on GLP, and start writing stories on Chemistry. I certainly held that role longer than he did.
