Obama Raises American Hypocrisy To A Higher Level

I can't find anything to disagree with in Paul Craig Robert's latest article prompted by Obama's speech on Libya.

Obama Raises American Hypocrisy To A Higher Level

Paul Craig Roberts

March 30, 2011

What does the world think? Obama has been using air strikes and drones
against civilians in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and probably Somalia. In his
March 28 speech, Obama justified his air strikes against Libya on the grounds
that the embattled ruler, Gadhafi, was using air strikes to put down a
rebellion.

Gadhafi has been a black hat for as long as I can remember.
If we believe the adage that “where there is smoke there is fire,” Gadhafi is
probably not a nice fellow. However, there is no doubt whatsoever that the
current US president and the predecessor Bush/Cheney regime have murdered many
times more people in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia than Gadhafi
has murdered in Libya.

Moreover, Gadhafi is putting down a rebellion against state authority as
presently constituted, but Obama and Bush/Cheney initiated wars of aggression
based entirely on lies and deception.

Yet Gadhafi is being demonized, and Bush/Cheney/Obama are sitting on their
high horse draped in cloaks of morality. Obama described himself as saving
Libyans from violence while Obama himself murders Afghans, Pakistanis, and
whomever else.

Indeed, the Obama regime has been torturing a US soldier, Bradley Manning,
for having a moral conscience. America has degenerated to the point where having
a moral conscience is evidence of anti-Americanism and “terrorist activity.”

The Bush/Cheney/Obama wars of naked aggression have bankrupted America.
Joseph Stiglitz, former chairman of the President’s Council of Economic
Advisers, concluded that the money wasted on the Iraq war could have been used
to fix America’s Social Security problem for half a century. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/feb/28/iraq.afghanistan

Instead, the money was used to boost the obscene profits of the armament
industry.

The obscene wars of aggression, the obscene profits of the offshoring
corporations, and the obscene bailouts of the rich financial gangsters have left
the American public with annual budget deficits of approximately $1.5 trillion.
These deficits are being covered by printing money. Sooner or later, the
printing presses will cause the US dollar to collapse and domestic inflation to
explode. Social Security benefits will be wiped out by inflation rising more
rapidly than the cost-of-living adjustments. If America survives, no one will be
left but the mega-rich. Unless there is a violent revolution.

Alternatively, if the Federal Reserve puts the brake on monetary expansion,
interest rates will rise, sending the economy into a deeper depression.

A d v e r t i s e m e n t




 

Washington, focused on its newest war, is oblivious to America’s peril. As
Stiglitz notes, the costs of the Iraq war alone could have kept every foreclosed
family in their home, provided health care for every American child, and wiped
out the student loans of graduates who cannot find jobs because they have been
outsoured to foreigners. However, the great democratic elected government of
“the world’s only superpower” prefers to murder Muslims in order to enhance the
profits of the military/security complex. More money is spent violating the
constitutional rights of American air travelers than is spent in behalf of the
needy.

The moral authority of the West is rapidly collapsing. When Russia, Asia, and
South America look at Europe, Australia and Canada, they see American puppet
states that contribute troops to the aggressive wars of the Empire. The French
president, the British prime minister, the “president” of Georgia, and the rest
are merely functionaries of the American Empire. The puppet rulers routinely
sell out the interests and welfare of their peoples in behalf of American
hegemony. And they are well rewarded for their service. One year out of office
former British prime minister Tony Blair had a net worth of $30 million.

In his war against Libya, Obama has taken America one step further into
Caesarism. Obama did Bush one step better and did not even bother to get
congressional authorization for his attack on Libya. Obama claimed that his
moral authority trumped the US Constitution. The hypocrisy reeks. How the public
stands it, I do not know:

To brush aside America’s responsibility as a leader and–more profoundly–our
responsibilities to our fellow human beings under such circumstances would have
been a betrayal of who we are. Some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to
atrocities in other countries. The United States of America is different. And as
president, I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before
taking action.

This from the Great Moral Leader who every day murders civilians in
Afghanistan and Pakistan and Yemen and Somalia and now Libya and who turns a
blind eye when “the great democracy in the Middle East,” Israel, murders more
Palestinians.

The American president, whose drones and air force slaughter civilians every
day of the year went on to say Libya stands alone in presenting the world with
“the prospect of violence on a horrific scale.” Obviously, Obama thinks that one
million dead Iraqis, four million displaced Iraqis, and an unknown number of
murdered Afghans is just a small thing.

The rest of Obama’s speech showed a person more capable of DoubleSpeak and
DoubleThink than Big Brother and the denizens of George Orwell’s 1984.

How does a person as totally absurd as Obama expect to be taken
seriously?

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts is the father of
Reaganomics and the former head of policy at the Department of
Treasury. He is a columnist and was previously an editor for the Wall Street
Journal.
His latest book, “How the
Economy Was Lost: The War of the Worlds
,” details why America is
disintegrating.

The attack on Libya was planned at least as far back as Feb. 2001 and most likely much earlier than that (80's?). These are wars for resources, nothing else.

With the Government shutdown looming be sure to stock up on food, and water, somehow I think food prices will rise somemore.
