Washington Is Changing The World Order Against Its Own Interests

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts:


The hubris and arrogance of Washington have been at work since the Clinton regime to destroy the power and relevance of the United States.

This website has an international audience. The most asked question from this audience is the world order. There is a realization that Washington’s control might weaken, a development people abroad see as hopeful. They ask me for verification of their hope.

Here is my answer:

The world order has already changed.  China has a larger and more powerful industrial and manufacturing based economy than the US, and China’s potential domestic consumer market is four times larger than that of the US. As economies are consumer based, China’s potential is an economy four times larger than that of the US.

Russia has a far more capable military with weapon systems unmatched by the US. The US is drowning in debt, and the illegal and irresponsible sanctions that Washington tries to impose on others are driving the world’s largest countries away from the use of the US dollar as world reserve currency and away from Western clearance systems such as SWIFT.  The United States already has one foot in the grave.  Any country sufficiently stupid to ally with the US is allied with a dead man walking.

President Eisenhower, a five-star general, warned Americans 57 years ago to no effect that the military/security complex was already a threat to the American people’s ability to control their government. Today the military/security complex is the Government. As Udo Ulfkotte documented in his book, Journalists for Hire: How the CIA buys the News—no you can’t buy a copy unless you can find a used copy in German in a German book store, the CIA has seen to that—journalism independent of official explanations no longer exists in the Western world.

Much of the world does not understand this. Aside from the material interests of Russian and Chinese capitalists, a portion of the youth of both superpowers, and also even in Iran, have succumbed to brainwashing by American propaganda. Gullible beyond belief, they are more loyal to America than they are to their own countries.

The United States itself is extremely unsuccessful, but its propaganda still rules the world. The consequence is that, based on its propagandistic success, Washington thinks it still holds the balance of economic and military power. This is a delusion that is leading Washington to nuclear war.

Considering the hypersonic speed, trajectory changeability and massive power of Russian nuclear weapons, war with Russia will result in nothing whatsoever being left of the US and its vassals, who sold out European peoples for Washington’s money.

“Any country sufficiently stupid to ally with the US is allied with a dead man walking.”

I think that small countries with weak armies will ally with the US, not because they love the US but out of fear. The US might be a dead man walking but the scare of bombs, drones, sanctions is real.

The US doesn’t come by ‘friends’ the natural way. They are all bought and will be dropped like hot potatoes when no longer of use.

And when, and if, the day comes when Washington finally realizes this…surprise, surprise.

And then it will be too late for them to change anything.

I really love watching Washington doing all it can to destroy USA from within while the “sensible” rest of the world just sits back and observes the circus. The only risk I see is that it won’t just be USA that goes down in flames, Washington will do all it can to makes sure the rest of the world goes the same way!.

The Final Solution and the Karma of that will amuse me when the fireball arrives.

When the U$ finally gets it into its thick exceptional head that it’s lost the game it’s been playing, it will have yet another childish temper tantrum and declare, “If we cannot have it, then no one will!” However, the population of the U$ is only 4% of the world’s population so they are somewhat outnumbered and don’t have the power to get us all. 🙂

The U.S. keeps stumbling over itself. Back in 1970 the only thing we imported from China was chop sticks. Then Henry Kissinger in order to “stick it ” to the Russians made a trip to China . Called the opening to China. Now we have China eating our lunch ,taking millions of American jobs and now dominating the world economy which the U.S. used to do.

Sorry to say, Walter, but in my opinion it serves the US right! Of course the ordinary US citizen suffers without being at fault but seen from overseas, the USA is one big obnoxious sore in the world, and many people love to see it go down.

Napoleon once said”Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake”
America is trapped in itself unable to see that freedom is knowing and understanding and respecting things quite other than ourselves.
So the insanity continues, the madness contagious , the world strolls casually to war.

Other nations will look on in hopeful anticipation.

Hopeful anticipation, yes! The USA is hated world-wide. Even their so-called European “partners” hate this bloated monster.
