This is article was first posted by Paul Craig Roberts about a month ago. PCR is only one year younger than me, and we both have PhDs after 6 years of postgraduate work, mine in Physics from Brown University and his in Economics from the University of Virginia and two other universities including his final year at Oxford. Most of my research was carried out at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC (1967-2001), where my position description was to carry out self-guided basic research …and by doing so that I accrued 9 national and international honors. More impressively, PCR became US Treasury Department Assistant Secretary for Economic Policy (1981-93) and subsequently held four different Congressional Staff positions (1975-78). Subsequently, he was a Columnist for Business Week and later an Editor of the Wall Street Journal, and he has written many books on the demise of America. My Jan-2001 exit from NRL was mainly to take up unexpected invited professorships of research at the University of Paris 6 & 7, the University of St Etienne in France, and Tokyo Institute of Technology. However, for me there was an additional reason for my early exit from NRL, namely in my final decade instead of producing self-guided research, my superiors demanded that I bring in outside funding for my work (which I did to the tune of $666,000 …although not enough in my boss’s view). Still, whenever members of the military/industrial/security complex (whose average pay was likely twice of mine) came to NRL for help on issues that I had studied, I helped them significantly. In the meantime, I think that sometime around 2000-2001 (maybe c.a. 9/11?) PCR realized that he too must leave his well-paid jobs in order to bring to the masses the evil works of our government before it is too late. To spread the truths that you will never hear from the “presstitute mainstream media”, everyone who reads this post should refer it to several of your friends, who then should then pass it on to some of their friends with the same request, etc. Why? Well, I simply can’t imagine our children and grandchildren perishing with us in a nuclear holocaust, can you? But unless We the People finally learn what is really going on with the insane neocons now commanding our government (camouflaged by fake news), one day too soon we may all be dead.

Are You Ready to Die?

Are You 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.” Vladimir Putin

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.

On 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.


The 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.

I have been unable to find any report that any US Senator or Representative or any European, Canadian, or Australian politician has raised a voice of concern.

No one in Washington got on the telephone to tell Putin that this was all a mistake, that the US was not preparing a nuclear first strike on Russia, or ask Putin how this serious situation could be defused.

Americans do not even know about it, except for my readers.

I would have expected at least that the CIA would have planted the story in the Washington Post, the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, and NPR that General Poznihir was expressing his personal opinion, nothing to be taken seriously. But apparently Americans and their European vassals are not to even know that such an accusation was made.

As I 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.

Alone 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?

Surely 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.

I lived through every stage of the Cold War. I 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.

I supported Trump because he, unlike Hillary, said he would normalize relations with Russia. Instead he has raised the tensions between the nuclear powers. Nothing is more irresponsible or dangerous.

We currently are in the most dangerous situation of my lifetime, and there is ZERO AWARENESS AND NO DISCUSSION!

How can this be? Putin has been issuing warnings for 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 through to you?”

Maybe 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. 

Within 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. 

I reported all of this, and it produced no response. The Memory Hole wasn’t needed, as neither Washington nor the presstitutes nor the Internet noticed. This is insouciance to the thousandth degree.

In America and its subservient, crawling on their knees vassal states, the information never gets reported, so it never has to be put down the Memory Hole.

If you convince someone that you are going to kill them, they are going to kill you first. A government, such as what exists in Washington, that convinces powerful countries that they are targeted, is a government that has no respect whatsoever for the lives of its own people or the peoples of the world or for any life on planet Earth.

Such a government as Washington is evil beyond all measure, as are the media whores and European, Canadian, Australian, and Japanese vassal states that serve Washington at the expense of their own citizens.

Despite all their efforts to believe otherwise, the Russian and Chinese leaderships have finally arrived, belatedly, at the realization that Washington is evil to the core and is the agent of Satan.

For Russia and China, the Satanic Evil that rules in the West has reduced the choice for Russia and China to them or us.
