America: The Greatest Threat to World Peace!

America: The Greatest Threat to World Peace!

by Stephen Lendman

No nation in world history matches America’s ruthless agenda - at war at home and/or abroad from inception, not a single year of peace throughout its sordid existence.

It’s the greatest purveyor of violence in world history, its barbarity unequaled, responsible for more harm to more people globally over a longer duration - contemptuous of democratic values, ignoring rule of law principles, indifferent to human suffering.

Dealing diplomatically with neocons infesting Washington at the highest levels assures disaster. They don’t negotiate. They demand, duplicitously pretending otherwise.

Agreements are made to be breached, counterparties always blamed - victims and independent nations consistently held responsible for US high crimes.

Washington wants war in Syria. Peace and stability defeat its agenda, replacing Assad’s government with a puppet regime it controls. 

It’s the same reason for all its imperial wars, aiming for unchallenged global dominance, all independent states eliminated, mainly Russia and China, the only nations matching America’s might and political clout when united to resist it - more vital now than ever.

Washington’s rage to dominate risks WW III, unthinkable with today’s super-weapons, no deterrent for lunatics infesting Washington.

America bears full responsibility for all post-9/11 direct and proxy wars, along with hugely destabilizing activities globally - why today is the most perilous time in world history.

Daily events should scare everyone. Are things heading inexorably toward US-launched potential humanity destroying nuclear war?

Flashpoint conditions in Syria may ignite it, planned and orchestrated by US lunatics - blaming Assad and Russia’s vital war on terrorism irresponsibly for Obama’s high crimes.

On Wednesday, Pentagon spokesman Col. Steven Warren lied to reporters, making baseless accusations, presenting no corroborating proof - the way Washington consistently operates, a rogue state waging endless war on humanity at home and abroad.

Syria is Obama’s war, launched in March 2011. Its five-year anniversary approaches. Moscow’s forthright peacemaking initiative has virtually no chance to succeed. 

US obstructionism prevents it. Endless war rages. Washington continues using ISIS and other terrorist groups as imperial foot soldiers. 

Not according to Warren, shamelessly blaming Assad for unspeakable “human suffering on the ground” - the same tired old blame the victim game, a longstanding US tradition.

Russia’s anti-terrorism campaign made things worse, he blustered, repeating Big Lies about “indiscriminate bombing,” targeting nonmilitary sites and killing civilians - providing no credible proof because none exists.

Washington’s duplicitous narrative drowns out hard truths, the public willfully deceived, media scoundrels shamelessly repeating official Big Lies.

John Kerry pretending support for cessation of hostilities in Syria and beginning peace talks is part of Washington’s grand deception - saying one thing, intending another.

US policymakers want war in Syria continued until their imperial objectives are achieved.

Russia’s anti-terrorism campaign forthrightly challenges them, so far effectively - hopefully defeating them decisively, perhaps the only chance for world peace.
