How The American Neoconservatives Destroyed Mankind’s Hopes For Peace

(RINF) – When Ronald Reagan turned his back on the neoconservatives, fired them, and had some of them prosecuted, his administration was free of their evil influence, and President Reagan negotiated the end of the Cold War with Soviet President Gorbachev. The military/security complex, the CIA, and the neocons were very much against ending the Cold War as their budgets, power, and ideology were threatened by the prospect of peace between the two nuclear superpowers.

I know about this, because I was part of it. I helped Reagan create the economic base for bringing the threat of a new arms race to a failing Soviet economy in order to pressure the Soviets into agreement to end the Cold War, and I was appointed to a secret presidential committee with subpeona power over the CIA. The secret committee was authorized by President Reagan to evaluate the CIA’s claim that the Soviets would prevail in an arms race. The secret committee concluded that this was the CIA’s way of perpetuting the Cold War and the CIA’s importance.

The George H. W. Bush administration and its Secretary of State James Baker kept Reagan’s promises to Gorbachev and achieved the reunification of Germany with promises that NATO would not move one inch to the East.

The corrupt Clintons, for whom the accumulation of riches seems to be their main purpose in life, violated the assurances given by the United States that had ended the Cold War. The two puppet presidents—George W. Bush and Obama—who followed the Clintons lost control of the US government to the neocons, who promptly restarted the Cold War, believing in their hubris and arrogance that History has chosen the US to exercise hegemony over the world.

Thus was mankind’s chance for peace lost along with America’s leadership of the world. Under neocon influence, the United States government threw away its soft power and its ability to lead the world into a harmonious existance over which American influence would have prevailed.

Instead the neocons threatened the world with coercion and violence, attacking eight countries and fomenting “color revolutions” in former Soviet republics.

The consequence of this crazed insanity was to create an economic and military strategic alliance between Russia and China. Without the neocons’ arrogant policy, this alliance would not exist. It was a decade ago that I began writing about the strategic alliance between Russia and China that is a response to the neocon claim of US world hegemony. http://www.rense.com/general77/tus.htm

The strategic alliance between Russia and China is militarily and economically too strong for Washington. China controls the production of the products of many of America’s leading corporations, such as Apple. China has the largest foreign exchange reserves in the world. China can, if the government wishes, cause a massive increase in the American money supply by dumping its trillions of dollars of US financial assets.

To prevent a collapse of US Treasury prices, the Federal Reserve would have to create trillions of new dollars in order to purchase the dumped financial instruments. The rest of the world would see another expansion of dollars without an expansion of real US output and become skepical of the US dollar. If the world abandoned the US dollar, the US government could no longer pay its bills.

Europe is dependent on Russian energy. Russia can cut off this energy. There are no alternatives in the short-run, and perhaps not in the long run. If Russia shuts off the energy, Germany industry shuts down. Europeans freeze to death in the winter. Despite these facts, the neocons have forced Europe to impose economic sanctions on Russia. What if Russia responded in kind?

NATO, as US military authorities admit, has no chance of invading Russia or withstanding a Russian attack on NATO. NATO is a cover for Washington’s war crimes. It can provide no other service.

Thanks to the greed of US corporations that boosted their profits by offshoring their production to China, China is moderinized many decades before the neocons thought possible. China’s military forces are moderized with Russian weapons technology. New Chinese missiles make the vaunted US Navy and its aircraft carriers obsolete.

The neocons boast how they have surrounded Russia, but it is America that is surrounded by Russia and China, thanks to the incompetent leadership that the US has had beginning with the Clintons. Judging from Killary’s support in the current presidential primaries, many voters seem determined to perpetuate incompetent leadership.

Despite being surrounded, the neocons are pressing for war with Russia which means also with China. If Killary Clinton makes it to the White House, we could get the neocon’s war.

The neocons have flocked to the support of Killary. She is their person. Watch the feminized women of America put Killary in office. Keep in mind that Congress gave its power to start wars to the president.

The United States does not have a highly intelligent or well informed population. The US owes its 20th century dominance to World War I and World War II which destroyed more capable countries and peoples. America became a superpower because of the self-destruction of other countries.

Despite neocon denials that their hubris has created a powerful alliance against the US, a professor at the US Navy War College stresses the reality of the Russian-Chinese strategic alliance.http://sputniknews.com/world/20160414/1037981155/russia-china-cooperation.html
Last August a joint Russian-Chinese sea and air exercise took place in the Sea of Japan, making it clear to America’s Japanese vassal that it was defenceless if Russia and China so decided.

The Russian defense minister Sergey Shoigu said that the joint exercise illustrates the partnership between the two powers and its stabilizing effect on that part of the world.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that Russian-Chinese relations are able to resist any international crises.

The only achievements of the American neoconservatives are to destroy in war crimes millions of peoples in eight countries and to send the remnant populations fleeing into Europe as refugees, thus undermining the American puppet governments there, and to set back the chances of world peace and American leadership by creating a powerful strategic alliance between Russia and China.

This boils down to extraordinary failure. It is time to hold the neoconservatives accountable, not elect another puppet for them to manipulate.

    The Americans hold their right hand to their heart, the Romans bent it at the elbow and held it up while the Nazis held it out. It’s just a question of degrees but the ideology behind it is similar.

  • Zaphod Braden

    There should be a BOUNTY on neocons.

    • TellTheTruth-2

      Their souls should be dispatched back to God so they can be confronted by the souls of the millions they have murdered in cold blood without conscience.

  • knifemare69

    There is one surefire way to stop all the neocon wars – pass a law requiring the neocons to enlist and fight in the wars that they start.

    The wars will stop OVER NIGHT because neocons are pussies who refuse to fight their own battles. Every. Single. Last. One. Of. Them.

  • yep

    Neoconservatives = zionistjews

  • Citizen Quasar

    Good one! But don’t forget and do NOT underestimate the Nazis, who never surrendered after WWII and are still around and are an active player on the world stage.

    • knifemare69

      “are still around and are an active player on the world stage.”

      Yeah, only now they’re called the CIA and the FBI; after 1945 the feds imported the cream of Nazi leadership into the US, gave them government jobs and let them determine policy, this country has turned into a fascist Sh*thole ever since. That old Operation Paperclip…

    If Trump loses America’s goose is cooked.
    Andrew Jackson.
    END THE FED!

  • TellTheTruth-2

    Hopefully Trump wins and Paul Craig Roberts can help clean out the neoCONs again .. this time with war crime and treason trials. These people promote The Greater Israel Project, not US interests. Thanks for a great article Mr Roberts!

  • Gary

    You’re a nitwit. Your “truths” are unsupported by the facts and your memory of the end of the Cold War is a farcical distortion of history. I sincerely doubt you were ever involved in “a secret presidential committee”. Your knowledge is so woefully lacking that your lies do not merit even a chuckle.

  • Leland Mellott

    By way of a powerful River Of Light in my mind during the month of October 1981, I see, among other things, that there will be peace in this world, universal and perpetual, up to and including the last word spoken by, the last breath of, the last person to be alive. No doubt given, all doubt taken away from me, where this matter is concerned

    • RenegadeProphet

      Thats what I am doing and you are not so STFU.

      The entire government are evil treasonous criminals. The day of the next false flag using the nuke they stole in 2007 and blamed on Iran, America will be destroyed by Russia, China and the SCO.

    “The attributes of God are love and mercy; the attribute of Satan is hate. Therefore, he who is merciful and kind to his fellowmen is manifesting the divine attribute, and he who is hating and hostile toward a fellow creature is satanic. God is absolute love, even as Jesus Christ has declared, and Satan is utter hatred. Wherever love is witnessed, know that there is a manifestation of God’s mercy; whenever you meet hatred and enmity, know that these are the evidences and attributes of Satan.”

    • RenegadeProphet

      And what god is love and mercy, the one who created us human slaves, Enki, or his brother Enlil who nuked the human cities? Who is satan? The fallen angels are the ones who taught and helped the puny human slaves. Who do you want on your side? Your ramblings make even less sense than the stupid preachers who dont have a clue what the bible says.

        “We find the mind a most difficult asset to master and, through it, one can easily be lead astray.”

    “Perfect intellectual development, without spiritual discernment and moral obligation, is the sign-manual of Satan: Intelligence, without goodness, lies athwart the Divine Plan in the evolution of Cosmos. Intellect and Altruism by no means necessarily go hand in hand. One may have a very clear intellect, have quick perceptions, and be a good reasoner, and yet a perfect scoundrel. On the other hand, the one may be very dull intellectually and yet be kind, brotherly and sympathetic to the last degree. A world made up of the former would be a bad place to live in ; if of the latter, a thousand times to be preferred.”

    the people who control America are the bankers who own the federal reserve and the political parties are also controlled by them and although the three men on the front cover of this story are just evil they represent these bankers as do all the other polititions . with all his experience in politics I would like to see paul craig Roberts do some reporting on them not their employees because that is all the politions are .
