Washington is Preparing a Nuclear First Strike
Ready to Die?
Paul Craig Roberts
“Fifty years ago, the
streets of Leningrad taught me one
thing: If a fight is inevitable, you
must strike first.”
- In George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel,
1984, information that no longer is
consistent with Big Brother’s explanations is
chucked down the Memory Hole. In the real
American dystopia in which we currently live,
the information is never reported at all.
April 26—16 days ago—Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznihir,
Deputy Chief of the Main Operations Directorate
of the Russian Armed Forces, stated at the
Moscow International Security Conference that
the Operations Command of the Russian General
Staff has concluded that Washington is preparing
a nuclear first strike on Russia.
Times-Gazett in Ashland, Ohio, was the only US
print media that a Google search could turn up
that reported this most alarming of all
announcements. A Google search turned up no
reports on US TV, and none on Canadian,
Australian, European, or any other media except
RT and Internet sites.

Senator or Representative or any European,
Canadian, or Australian politician has raised a
voice of concern.

that this was all a mistake, that the US was not

planted the story in the Washington Post, the
New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, and NPR that General
Poznihir was expressing his personal opinion,

Americans and their European vassals are not to
even know that such an accussation was made.
reported some time ago and more recently in my
column about North Korea, the Chinese leadership
has also concluded that the US intends a nuclear
first strike against China.
either Russia or China can destroy the US. If
they act together, the destruction of the US
would be redundant. What is the intelligence, if
any, and morality, clearly none, of the US
leadership that recklessly and irresponsibly
invites Russia and China to preempt Washington’s
attack on them with an attack on the US?
not even insouciant Americans are so stupid as
to think that Russia and China will just sit
there and wait for Washington’s nuclear attack.

participated in it. Never in my life have I
experienced the situation where two nuclear
powers were convinced that the third was going
to surprise them with a nuclear attack.

he would normalize relations with Russia.
Instead he has raised the tensions between the

years. He has told the Western presstitute media
on more than one occasion that they, in their
dishonesty, are pushing the world to nuclear
war. Putin has said over and over, “I issue
warnings and no one hears.” “How do I get

the morons will hear when mushroom clouds appear
over Washington and New York, and Europe ceases
to exist, as it will if Europe continues the
confrontation with Russia as is required from
Washington’s well-paid vassals.
the last several years I reported the Chinese
government’s reaction to US war plans for a
nuclear strike on China. The Chinese showed how
their submarines would destroy the West Coast of
the US and their ICBMs would finish off the rest
of the country.

response. The Memory Hole wasn’t needed, as
neither Washington nor the presstitutes nor the
Internet noticed. This is insouciance to the

government, such as what exists in Washington,
