The Americans who believe the United States has "the most powerful military the world has ever known" are itching for war with Russia. They think they can win. With only two of its biggest bombs Russia could make the eastern coast of the United States disappear, forever. Everything from Boston to Atlanta would be gone. What's in between? History proves that Russians do not curl up and die when attacked. A nuclear war would make everyone on the planet disappear, forever. Russians ignore provokations. Russians know and fear war. Americans do not. The John McCain funeral extravaganzas were war party rituals of ignorant barbarians who have no concept of the disasters they are courting. - Ed
Provocations Have A History Of Escalating Into War
Can War Be Avoided and the Planet Saved?
Paul Craig Roberts
I think that Martyanov and The Saker agree that my question is a valid one. Both emphasise in their highly informative writings that the court historians misrepresent wars in the interest of victors. Let’s give this a moment’s thought. Both Napoleon and Hitler stood at their apogee, their success unmitigated by any military defeat. Then they marched into Russia and were utterly destroyed. Why did they do this? They did it because their success had given them massive arrogance and belief in their “exceptionalism,” the dangerous word that encapsulates Washington’s belief in its hegemony.
The Zionist neoconservatives who rule in Washington are capable of the same mistake that Napoleon and Hitler made. They believe in “the end of history,” that the Soviet collapse means history has chosen America as the model for the future. Their hubris actually exceeds that of Napoleon and Hitler.
When confronted with such a deluded and ideological force, does turning the other cheek work or does it encourage more provocation?
This is the question before the Russian government.
Perhaps the Russian government will understand the meaning of the orchestrated eulogies for John McCain. It is not normal for a US senator to be eulogized in this way, especially one with such an undistinguished record. What is being eulogized is McCain’s hatred of Russia and his record as a warmonger. What Washington is eulogizing is its own commitment to war.
