Emperor’s Rage: Let Chaos Envelop the World!
By James Petras
July 28, 2014 "ICH"
reigns and spreads as enraged leaders in the US,
Europe and their clients and allies pursue genocidal
in Syria; Israel’s terror bombing on Gaza; proxy
wars in the Ukraine, Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan,
Libya and Somalia.
millions of refugees flee scenes of total
destruction. Nothing is sacred. There are no
sanctuaries. Homes, schools, hospitals and entire
families are targeted for destruction.
Chaos by Design
center of chaos, the wild-eyed President Obama
strikes blindly, oblivious of the consequences,
willing to risk a financial debacle or a nuclear
war. He enforces sanctions against Iran; imposes
sanctions on Russia; sets up missile bases five
launch minutes from Moscow; sends killer drones
against Pakistan, Yemen and Afghanistan; arms
mercenaries in Syria; trains and equips Kurds in
Iraq and pays for Israel’s savagery against Gaza.
President is blind to the fact that starving one’s
adversaries does not secure submission: it unites
them to resist. Regime change, imposing proxies by
force and subterfuge, can destroy the social fabric
of complex societies: Million of peasants and
workers become uprooted refugees. Popular social
movements are replaced by organized criminal gangs
and bandit armies.
America, the product of decades of US direct and
proxy military interventions, which prevented the
most basic structural changes, has become a chaotic,
unlivable inferno for millions. Tens of thousands of
children flee from their ‘free market’- induced mass
poverty and militarized state and gangster violence.
Children refugees at the US border are arrested in
mass, and imprisoned in makeshift detention camps,
subject to psychological, physical and sexual abuse
by officials and guards on the inside. On the
outside, these pitiful children are exposed to the
racist hatred of a frightened US public unaware of
the dangers these children are escaping and the US
government’s role in creating these hells.
US-backed Kiev aviation authorities re-directed
international passenger airlines to fly over war
zones bristling with anti-aircraft missiles while
Kiev’s jets bombed the rebellious cities and towns.
One flight was shot down and nearly 300 civilians
perished. Immediately an explosion of accusations
from Kiev blaming Russian President Putin flooded
Western media with no real facts to explain the
tragedy/crime. War-crazy President Obama and the
slavering prime ministers of the EU ejaculated
ultimatums, threatening to convert Russia into a
pariah state. ‘Sanctions, sanctions, everywhere, but
first… France must complete its $1.5 billion sale to
the Russian navy.’ And the City of London exempts
the Russian oligarchs from the ‘sanctions’, embedded
as they are in London’s money-laundering,
parasitical FIRE (Fire, Insurance and Real Estate)
economy. The Cold War has returned and has taken an
ugly turn… with exceptions for business.
Confrontation among nuclear powers is imminent: And
the maniacal Baltic States and Poland bray the
loudest for war with Russia, oblivious to their
positions on the front lines of incineration.
Israel’s war machine chews up more bodies of Gaza’s
children while spitting out more lies. Cheering
Israeli Jews perch on their fortified hills to
celebrate each missile strike on the apartments and
schools in the densely populated Shejaiya
neighborhood of besieged Gaza. A group of orthodox
and secular entrepreneurs in Brooklyn have organized
group tours to visit the Holy Sites by day and enjoy
the Gaza pyrotechnics by night … night goggles to
view the fleeing mothers and burning children are
available at a small extra charge…
US Senate votes unanimously in support of Israel’s
latest campaign of mass murder – no crime is
depraved enough to ruffle the scruples of America’s
leaders. They hew close to a script from the 52
Presidents of the Major American Jewish
Organizations. Together they embrace a Beast from
the Apocalypse gnawing on the flesh and bones of
Sacre Bleu! France’s Zionists have prevailed on
the ‘President-Socialiste’ Hollande. Paris bans all
anti-Israel demonstrations despite the clear reports
of genocide. Demonstrators supporting the Gazan
resistance are gassed and assaulted by special riot
police – ‘Socialist’ Hollande serves the demands of
powerful Zionist organizations while trashing his
country’s republican traditions and its sacred
‘Rights of Man’.
protestors of Paris fought back with barricades and
paving stones in the finest traditions of the Paris
Commune waving the flags of a free Palestine. Not a
single ‘red banner’ was in sight: The French ‘left’
were under their beds or off on vacation.

stock market is rising while the economy stagnates.
Wild speculators have returned in their splendor
widening the gap between the fictitious and real
economy before the ‘deluge’, the chaos of another
industrial America’s once great Detroit, clean water
is shut-off to tens of thousands of poor citizens
unable to pay for basic services. In the midst of
summer, urban families are left to defecate in
hallways, alleyways and empty lots. Without water
the toilets are clogged, children are not washed.
Roscoe, the master plumber, says the job is way
to our famed economists, the economy of Detroit is
‘recovering … profits are up, it’s only the people
who are suffering’. Productivity has doubled,
speculators are satisfied; pensions are slashed and
wages are down; but the Detroit Tigers are in first
hospitals everywhere are being closed. In the Bronx
and Brooklyn, emergency rooms are overwhelmed.
Chaos! Interns work 36 hour shifts, and the sick and
injured take their chances with a sleep-deprived
medic. Meanwhile, in Manhattan, private clinics and
‘boutique’ practices for the elite proliferate.
Scandinavians have embraced the putschist power grab
in Kiev. The Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt
bellows for a new Cold War with Russia. The Danish
emissary and NATO leader, Anders Fogh-Rasmussen,
salivates obscenely at the prospect of bombing and
destroying Syria in a replay of NATO’s ‘victory’
leaders endorse the ongoing Israeli genocide against
Gaza; they are comfortably protected from any moral
conscience by their nostalgic blanket of ‘guilt’
over Nazi crimes 70 years ago.
Saudi-funded Jihadi terrorists in Iraq showed their
“infinite mercy” by… merely driving thousands of
Christians from ancient Mosul. Nearly 2,000 years of
a continuous Christian presence was long enough! At
least most escaped with their heads still attached.
hundred thousand agents of the US National Security
Agency are paid to spy on two million Muslim
citizens and residents in the USA. But for all the
tens of billions of dollars spent and tens of
millions of conversations recorded, Islamic
charities are prosecuted and philanthropic
individuals are framed in ‘sting operations’.
bombs fall no one knows, but people flee. Millions
are fleeing the chaos.

African countries but the refugees are denied refuge
in France. Thousands die in the desert or drown
crossing the Med. Those who do make it, are branded
criminals or relegated to ghettos and camps.
reigns in Africa, the Middle East, Central America
and Detroit. The entire US frontier with Mexico has
become a militarized detention center, a
multi-national prison camp. The border is
unrecognizable to our generation.

sanctions: Iran yesterday, Russia today and China
tomorrow. Washington, Watch out! Your adversaries
are finding common ground, trading, forging
agreements, building defenses; their ties are
reigns in Israel. War-obsessed Israelis discover
that the Chosen People of God can also bleed and
die, lose limbs and eyes in the alleyways of Gaza
where poorly armed boys and men stand their ground.
When the cheers turn to jeers, will they re-elect
Bibi, their current kosher butcher? The overseas
brethren, the fundraisers, the lobbyists and the
armchair verbal assassins will automatically embrace
some new face, without questions, regrets or (god
forbid!) self-criticism –if it’s ‘good for Israel
and the Jews’ it’s got to be right!
reigns in New York. Judicial rulings favor the
pirates and their vulture funds demanding
one-thousand percent returns on old Argentine bonds.
If Argentina rejects this financial blackmail and
defaults, shock waves will ripple throughout global
financial markets. Creditors will tremble in
uncertainty: Fears will grow over a new financial
crash. Will they squeeze out another trillion-dollar
the money? Printing presses are working day and
night. There are only a few life boats . . . enough
for the bankers and Wall Street, the other
ninety-nine percent will have to swim or feed the
corrupted financial press now advises warlords on
which country to bomb and politicians on how to
impose economic sanctions; they no longer provide
sound economic information or advise investors on
markets. Their editorial rants will incite an
investor flight to buy king-sized mattresses for
stuffing as the banks fail.
President is on the verge of a mental breakdown:
He’s a liar of Munchausen proportions with a bad
case of political paranoia, war hysteria and
megalomania. He’s gone amok, braying, ‘I lead the
world: its US leadership or chaos’. Increasingly the
world has another message: ‘It’s the US and chaos.’
is abandoning him. The Russians have double-crossed
him. The Chinese merchants are now doing business
everywhere we used to be and we ought to be. They’re
playing with loaded dice. The stubborn Somalis
refuse to submit to a Black President: they reject
this ‘ML King with drones’ . . . The Germans suck on
their thumbs in total stupor as Americans monitor
and record their every conversation…for their own
safety! “Our corporations are ingrates after all we
have done for them”, the First Black President
whines. “They flee from our taxes while we subsidize
Final Solutions: The End of Chaos
solution is to move on: Chaos breeds chaos. The
President strives to project his ‘Leadership’. He
asks his close advisers very hard questions: “Why
can’t we bomb Russia, just like Israel bombs Gaza?
Why don’t we build an ‘Iron Dome’ over Europe and
shoot down Russian nuclear missiles while we fire
upon Moscow from our new bases in Ukraine? Which
countries will our ‘Dome’ protect? I am sure that
the people of East Europe and the Baltic States will
gladly make the supreme sacrifice. After all, their
leaders were at the very front frothing for a war
with Russia. Their reward, a nuclear wasteland, will
be a small price to ensure our success!”

the Saudis may try to bribe the Russians to spare
the oil fields as Moscow targets the US missile
bases near Mecca. Our radio-active allies in the
Middle East will just have to relocate to a new Holy
and his advisers imagine reducing the Asian
population by a billion or two? Do they plan several
hundred Hiroshimas because the Chinese crossed the
President’s ‘red lines’: China’s economy and trade
grew too fast, expanded too far, it was too
competitive, too competent, too successful at
gaining market shares, and they ignored our warnings
and our unparalleled military might.
Asia will inhale nuclear dust, millions of Indians
and Indonesians will perish as collateral damage.
Their survivors will feast on ‘radiated fish’ in a

‘Iron Dome’ will have failed us, we will have to
re-emerge out of toxic ashes and crawl from our
bunkers, dreaming of a New America free from wars

emperors will be forgotten.
never will have found out who fired that missile at
the doomed Malaysian airliner with its 300
passengers and crew. We will have lost count of the
thousands of Palestinian parents and children
slaughtered in Gaza by the Chosen People of Israel.
We will not know how the sanctions against Russia
matter in the post-nuclear age, after the Chaos…
