American economist and political commentator Paul Craig Roberts called the United Kingdom, France, and the United States illegal and criminal military regimes in his article published on his website on April 25.
The U.S., U.K., and French governments intentionally lied about an alleged Russian chemical attack on the Skripals and about an alleged Syrian chemical attack on Douma, risking a third world war, and then attacked Syria on the basis of a blatant lie unsupported by any evidence. Only illegal military regimes behave like that, Paul Craig Roberts explains his point of view, and continues, “How exactly do you conduct diplomatic relations with war criminals? You don’t. You put them on trial. Why aren’t Trump, May, and Macron on trial? The reason is that the world has been conditioned, like Pavlov’s dogs, to expect and accept the West’s war crimes as ordinary common features of life. The West’s crimes are protected by precedents established by decades of failing to hold the West accountable. The West has squatters rights in committing unaccountable war crimes.”
Having reflected on these issues, the American commentator poses in his article a series of rhetorical questions:
– How can it be that the European, Canadian, and Australian governments and the citizens of these countries are not ashamed of their participation in these never-ending crimes?
– Why is the world silent in the face of massive, long-term, ongoing war crimes?
– Where is there any determination to put a halt to the West’s criminality?
– Will the Russian president and foreign minister continue to speak of “our Western partners” and seek common ground with proven lawless war criminals?
– Why does the Russian government think it can have a partnership with a war criminal regime?
– Why would Russia want such a shameful and demeaning association?
“Russian indecisiveness combined with the rest of the world’s toleration of ongoing U.S. war crimes suggests that more provocations will be orchestrated, that more lawless attacks will take place, and that eventually a fatal conflict will be brewed,” Paul Craig Roberts finalizes his reflections.
Recently, Paul Craig Roberts said that the United States, having lost any sane leadership, has no chance in confronting Russia and China.
