According to news reports https://ltnacionalistas.wordpress.com/angliskai/lithuanian-government-intensifies-persecutions-against-anti-imperialist-activists/ and to this appeal by Kristoferis Voishka https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6MDj2uvyLk
the pro-American government installed in Lithuania is persecuting Lithuanians who dissent from the anti-Russian propaganda that is driving Washington’s NATO puppets to war with Russia. Unlike their puppet government, Lithuanians understand that war with Russia means that Lithuania on the front line will be utterly destroyed, a result that would not bother Washington in the least, just as Washington is undisturbed when its forces obliterate weddings, funerals, and children’s soccer games.

What is Lithuania? To Washington it is a nothing.

Kristoferis Voiska runs an alternative Internet news site in LIthuania. Not long ago he interviewed me, and the interview appeared in both LIthuanian newspapers and on his Internet news program in video form. I found him to be sincere and well informed. I advised him that interviewing me would bring trouble for him, and he already was aware of that.

As I have said so many times, Americans are the worst informed people on the planet.
The are unaware of the growing momentum toward war with Russia. The presstitute media throughout Europe, especially in the Baltic states and Poland, is hard at work creating in people’s minds the fear of a Russian invasion. The orchestrated fear then provides the basis for the American puppet governments to beg troops and tanks and missiles from Washington, and the US military/security complex, counting its profits, is pleased to comply.

But what Russia sees is a threat, not a money-making opportunity for the US military/security complex and payoffs to the corrupt Lithuanian and Polish governments, which are increasingly perceived as neo-nazi like the government that Washington bestowed on Ukraine.

The situation is dangerous, as I keep telling you, a message that some are too weak to accept.

I have misplaced contact information for Kristoferis Voiska. If you care to show support for Kristoferis and the independent media in Lithuania, send emails to Valdas Anelauskas [email protected] Perhaps he will forward them.

In about one week I will be 76 years old. I was born in 1939 as World War II was unfolding as the direct consequence of the Versailles Treaty that broke every promise President Woodrow Wilson made to Germany in exchange for the end of World War I.

I remember as a child Cold War nuclear attack drills in elementary school during which we would cower under our school desks. We were issued dog tags with our blood type just like the dog tags ripped by their comrades off US soldiers killed in the war movies by Germans or Japs (no longer a permissible word) and sent home to the dead GI’s family.

To us it was more romantic than scary. We loved wearing the dog tags. I have no idea what happened to mine. They must be collectors’ items by now.

ORDER IT NOW

I have seen a lot. As kids playing war–in those days you could have toy guns without being shot down by the police who are protecting us–we reveled in America’s World War victories. We understood, thanks to our parents and grandparents, that the Red Army won the war against Germany, but us Americans beat the heartless Japs.

That was enough. We knew that the US was tough.

I was 14 when the Korean War broke out. We expected to win, of course, and our expectations, we thought, were proven correct when General MacArthur’s amphibious landings rolled up the North Korean army. But what MacArthur and Washington had overlooked is that China and the Soviet Union were not about to accept a US victory.

Before Americans could cheer, the Third World Chinese Army rolled in and pushed the conqueror of Japan back town to the tip of South Korea. It was a humiliating defeat for American arms. MacArthur’s response to conventional defeat was to request to employ nuclear weapons. In his dispute with President Truman, MacArthur, America’s most famous general, was removed from command.

Washington accepted defeat in Korea and again in Viet Nam where a 500,000 US force consisting of US Army, Marines, and Special Forces was defeated by a Third World guerrilla army.

To these defeats we can add Afghanistan and Iraq. After 14 years of killing, the Taliban controls most of the country. Jihadist have carved a new state out of parts of Syria and Iraq. The Middle East reeks of American defeat. Just like Korea. Just like Viet Nam.

Despite these facts insouciant Americans and their crazed rulers in Washington imagine that the US is a Uni-Power, the world’s only superpower against whom no country can stand. This arrogance, ignorance, and hubris is leading the US into conflict with Russia and China, either of which can destroy the US with ease. And Europe as well. And the stupid bought-and-paid-for Japanese government, a total non-entity, a disgrace to the Japanese people, a collection of well-payed American puppets.

As Andrew Cockburn has documented, the US military is lost in abstractions and is no longer capable of conducting conventional warfare. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2015/03/24/us-government-us-military-became-murder-inc-paul-craig-roberts/ Any American or NATO army sent to attack Russia will be destroyed almost instantly. Washington cannot accept the loss of prestige from defeat and would take the war nuclear. Life on earth would end.

The only conclusion that informed analysis supports is that Washington is the greatest threat to life on earth. Washington is a greater threat than global warming. Washington is a greater threat than the exhaustion of mineral energy sources. Washington is a greater threat than the rise in world and US poverty from Washington’s policy to enrich the few at the expense of the many.

The only possible conclusion is that unless Washington collapses from its economic house of cards or is abandoned by its NATO puppet states, Washington will destroy life on earth.

Washington is the greatest evil that the world has ever faced. There is no good in 
Washington. Only total evil.

  1. As Solzhenitsyn put it, “The line between good and evil is not between peoples, but divides every human heart.” That is as true for those in Washington as it is for you and I, which ought to be humbling enough for us not to offer blanket Manichean condemnations. All of us are capable of both self-deception and being confused by deception. We should offer the truth in every way we can, showing that the way of peaceful resolution of human conflict is ultimately the key to and the best hope of the survival of life and human prosperity. It is certainly true that where there is unopposed great power, there will be abuse of it. Democratic accountability is not in itself the complete solution, but in combination with dedication to truth-telling it is the best that we can advocate for.

  2. “Washington is the greatest evil that the world has ever faced. There is no good in Washington. Only total evil.”

    A brutal assessment, to be sure, but it’s apt. Washington, District of Corruption is hopelessly inept, corrupt, bought off, out of sync. It’s the first place I’d stick the enema nozzle.

    Then again, it’s possible that Vlad Putin et al. might decide to administer an ICBM enema to D.C. . . . .

    “Washington is a greater threat than global warming.”

    Say what?

    I really like PCR and I agree with his assessment about our evil Jewish supremacist led government, but he can do better that than that.

    That specific comparison is a bad one since there is no man-made global warming. Agenda free research has thoroughly debunked the left’s war on science.
    http://www.nipccreport.org

    the green agenda: green on the outside, red on the inside.

    Who is it that wants to censor free speech via the “hate speech” canard.
    Who runs the Federal Reserve?
    Who runs Wall Street?
    Who owns the US Congress
    Who owns the White House?
    Who forces acceptance of the fictitious & impossible ‘6M & gas chambers’?
    Who runs the media / entertainment?
    Who dominates ‘academia’?
    Why is AIPAC the most powerful, dominant lobby, which regularly writes the text of Congressional bills and resolutions.
    Who is it the demands the US shed the blood of US troops for their interests?
    Who are the biggest racists on the planet?

    Thanks.

    Let me guess: Is it THE JEWS????

    Why is AIPAC the most powerful, dominant lobby, which regularly writes the text of Congressional bills and resolutions.

    It isn’t. The AARP is.

    Who is it the demands the US shed the blood of US troops for their interests?

    Like you care. Read some of the things you write about soldiers here. And who demands it? Corporate America is who demands it.

    Who are the biggest racists on the planet?

    You mean besides yourself?

    I said it earlier and I’ll say it again: You are a walking, talking textbook example of projection.

    Oh my God, when will these “Jews, Jews,Jews” people stop! It is not the Jews, it is the necocons – the Mad Dog Jews who are steering up all this trouble. You cannot blame the whole religion or a whole nation, even the Netanyahu ‘s election is a forged election, like everything these nutcases do: they steal, lie and murder and their agents also do rape. Stop blaming it on all people, like all Muslims, all Jews, all Americans…

    As usual, PCR makes excellent points, the premier one being his conclusion with which few informed US citizens would disagree: “Washington is the greatest evil that the world has ever faced. There is no good in 
Washington. Only total evil.” Yet, he also writes: “Americans are the worst informed people on the planet”, which means that few US citizens are informed about their own country or the level of danger it represents.

    The neocon ruled Washington is leading the World into a nuclear confrontation. Here is one list of potential targets in the US: http://modernsurvivalblog.com/nuclear/us-nuclear-target-map/

    In general, if you are anywhere near, or down-wind from, a facility used by US/NATO to target Russia or China by nuclear missiles, you are roasted meat. But I am sure that you and your children would be happy to make this ultimate sacrifice for the benefit of the neocons and their military-industrial complex. After all, they are convincing you through their controlled media that it is Russia which wants an empire, it is Russia which is aggressive.

    The only fury greater than a woman scorned is an ex-insider who has been purged from from all insider Rolodexes. A couple invitations to the cocktail parties that Roberts no longer gets invited to and Roberts would be purring a different tune.

    In a recent PCR interview with a European radio host (and I think I’ve listened to them all), PCR expressed a total lack of understanding and curiosity regarding the problem of mass Muslim immigration into Europe. I was as dumbfounded by how uninformed and naive his response was as the interviewer. I don’t think PCR was being intentionally dismissive or disingenuous.

    I’ve wondered what would happen if someone posed it to PCR directly: “We’re talking about Jews, right?” Would he genuinely be nonplussed by the question?

    Anyway, I agree that your list leads us in the right direction and only hasbaraniks– whether they are conscious of being one or not– argue otherwise.

    I never heard any bully say: “it is me who is steering up trouble”. No, it is always his victim who is to blame. Thus, Russia is aggressive, Russia wants an empire, Russia annexes and occupies. The US bully sees better a thorn in Russia’s eye than a timber log in its own eye: hundreds of thousand dead every year from its “proactive defense”, “kinetic action”, “collateral damage” etc. Everything covered by a thick cover of repetitive, empty and dumb phraseology of Orwellian “New English”.

    Thus most US citizens are totally and blissfully unaware what kind of danger their country represents. Instead, they believe that, being an exceptional nation, their country is doing God’s work around the planet.

    Only cockroaches will survive this exceptional nation.

    @Sam Haysom

    The “purging” was the result of his change in tone and focus. PCR hadn’t worked in government since the early 80s anyways and I don’t think scorn explains much. I would think he knows people to have cocktails with more pleasant and interesting than HRC.
