European race’s last three hundred years of evolutionary
progress have all come down to nothing but four words:
selfishness, slaughter, shamelessness and corruption.”

It only took the rest of
the world 300 years to catch on to the evil that masquerades as
“western civilization,” or perhaps it only took the rise of new
powers with the confidence to state the obvious. Anyone doubtful
of America’s responsibility for the evil needs to read The
Untold History of the United States by Oliver Stone and
The “New American Century” proclaimed by the neoconservatives
came to an abrupt end on September 6 at the G20 meeting in
Russia. The leaders of most of the world’s peoples told Obama
that they do not believe him and that it is a violation of
international law if the US government attacks Syria without UN
Putin told the assembled world leaders that the chemical weapons
attack was “a provocation on behalf of the armed insurgents in
hope of the help from the outside, from the countries which
supported them from day one.” In other words, Israel, Saudi
Arabia, and Washington--the axis of evil.
China, India, South Africa, Brazil, Indonesia, and Argentina
joined Putin in affirming that a leader who commits military
aggression without the approval of the UN Security Council puts
himself “outside of law.”
In other words, if you defy the world, Obama, you are a war
The entire world is waiting to see if the Israel Lobby can push
obama into the role of war criminal. Many are betting that
Israel will prevail over the weak american president, a cipher
devoid of all principle. A couple of decades ago before the
advent of the american sheeple, one of the last tough Americans,
Admiral Tom Moorer, Chief of Naval Operations and Chairman of
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, publicly declared that “no US
president can stand up to Israel.” America’s highest ranking
military officer could not get an honest investigation of the
Israeli attack on the USS Liberty.
We are yet to see an american president who can stand up to
Israel. Or, for that matter, a Congress that can. Or a media.
The obama regime tried to counter its smashing defeat at the G20
Summit by forcing its puppet states to sign a joint statement
condemning Syria. However the puppet states qualified their
position by stating that they opposed military action and
awaited the UN report.
Most of obama’s bought-and-paid-for “supporters” are impotent,
powerless. For example obama counts the UK as a supporting
country because of the personal support of the discredited UK
prime minister, david cameron, despite the fact that cameron was
repudiated by the British Parliament in a vote that prohibits
British participation in another of Washington’s war crimes. So,
although cameron cannot bring the British people and the British
government with him, obama counts the UK as a supporter of
obama’s attack on Syria. Clearly, this is a desperate count of
The Turkish puppet government, which has been shooting its
peacefully demonstrating citizens down in the streets, with no
protest from obama or the Israel Lobby, supports “holding Syria
accountable,” but not itself, of course, or Washington.
The puppet states of Canada and Australia, powerless countries,
neither of which carry one ounce of world influence, have lined
up to do the bidding of their Washington master. The entire
point of having the top government job in Canada and Australia
is the payoff from Washington.
The obama cipher also claims the support of Japan and the
Republic of Korea, another two countries devoid of all
diplomatic influence and power of any kind. Helpless Japan is on
the verge of being destroyed by the Fukushima nuclear disaster,
for which it has no solution. As the radiation leaks spread into
the aquifer upon which Tokyo and surrounding areas rely, Japan
is faced with the possibility of having to relocate 40 million
Saudi Arabia, implicated in the transfer to al-Nusra rebels of
the chemical weapons used in the attack, supports Washington,
knowing that otherwise its tyranny is toast. Even the
neoconservatives headed by obama’s shrill National Security
Advisor, Susan Rice, want to overthrow the Saudis.
Obama claims also to have support from France and Germany.
However both Hollande and Merkel have stated clearly that a
diplomatic solution, not war, is their first choice and that the
outcome rests on the UN.
As for Italy and Spain’s support, both governments are hoping to
be rewarded with the Federal Reserve printing enough dollars to
bail out their indebted economies so that both governments are
not overthrown in the streets for their acquiescence to the
looting of their countries by international banksters. Like so
many Western governments, those of Italy and Spain, and, of
course, Greece, support the international banksters, not their
The president of the European Commission has declared that the
European Union, the central overlord over Britain, France,
Germany, Italy, and Spain, does not support a military solution
to the Syrian Crisis. “The European Union is certain that the
efforts should be aimed at a political settlement,” Jose Manuel
Barroso told reporters at the G20 meeting. The EU has the power
to issue arrest warrants for the heads of EU governments that
participate in war crimes.
What this reveals is that the support behind the liar obama is
feeble and limited. The ability of the Western countries to
dominate international politics came to an end at the G20
meeting. The moral authority of the West is completely gone,
shattered and eroded by countless lies and shameless acts of
aggression based on nothing but lies and self-interests. Nothing
remains of the West’s “moral authority,” which was never
anything but a cover for self-interest, murder, and genocide.
The West has been destroyed by its own governments, who have
told too many self-serving lies, and by its capitalist
corporations, who offshored the West’s jobs and technology to
China, India, Indonesia, and Brazil, depriving the Western
governments of a tax base and the support of its citizens.
It is difficult to know whether citizens in the West hate their
corrupt governments any less than do Muslims, whose lives and
countries have been devastated by Western aggression, or than do
citizens of third world countries who have been impoverished by
being looted by predatory First World financial organizations.
The idiot Western governments have pissed away their clout.
There is no prospect whatsoever of the neoconservative fantasy
of US hegemony being exercised over Russia, China, India,
Brazil, South Africa, South America, Iran. These countries can
establish their own system of international payments and finance
and leave the dollar standard whenever they wish. One wonders
why they wait. The US dollar is being printed in unbelievable
quantities and is no longer qualified to be the world reserve
currency. The US dollar is on the verge of total worthlessness.
The G20 Summit made it clear that the world is no longer willing
to go along with the West’s lies and murderous ways. The world
has caught on to the West. Every country now understands that
the bailouts offered by the West are merely mechanisms for
looting the bailed-out countries and impoverishing the people.
In the 21st century Washington has treated its own citizens the
way it treats citizens of third world countries. Untold
trillions of dollars have been lavished on a handful of banks,
while the banks threw millions of Americans out of their homes
and seized any remaining assets of the broken families.
US corporations had their taxes cut to practically nothing, with
few paying any taxes at all, while the corporations gave the
jobs and careers of millions of Americans to the Chinese and
Indians. With those jobs went US GDP, tax base, and economic
power, leaving Americans with massive budget deficits, a debased
currency, and bankrupt cities, such as Detroit, which once was
the manufacturing powerhouse of the world.
How long before Washington shoots down its own homeless, hungry,
and protesting citizens in the streets?
Washington represents Israel and a handful of powerful organized
private interests. Washington represents no one else. Washington
is a plague upon the American people and a plague upon the
