Paul Craig Roberts: Puppet State America

The United States government and its subject peoples think of the US as “the world’s only superpower.”  But how is a country a superpower when its entire government and a majority of the subjects, especially those members of evangelical , grovel at the feet of the Israeli Prime Minister? How is a country a superpower when it lacks the power to determine its own foreign policy in the Middle East?  Such a country is not a superpower.  It is a puppet state.

In the past few days we have witnessed, yet again, the “American superpower” groveling at ’s feet. When decided to again murder the Palestinian women and of , to further destroy what remains of the social infrastructure of the Ghetto, and to declare Israeli and against humanity to be merely the exercise of “self-defense,” the US Senate, the US , the , and the US media all promptly declared their support for Netanyahu’s crimes.

On November 16 the Congress of the “superpower,” both House and Senate, passed overwhelmingly the resolutions written for them by , the Lobby known as the American Public Affairs Committee, the only foreign agent that is not required to register as a foreign agent. The Global News Service of the People reported their power over Washington with pride. Both and Republicans shared the dishonor of serving Israel and evil instead of and justice for the .

The White House quickly obeyed the summons from the . President announced that he is “fully supportive” of Israel’s assault on Gaza. Ben Rhodes, White House deputy national security adviser, told the media on November 17 that the White House “wants the same thing as the Israelis want.”  This is an overstatement as many Israelis oppose the crimes of the Israeli government, which is not the government of Israel but the government of the “settlers,” that is, the crazed land-hungry immigrants who are illegally, with Netanyahu’s support, stealing the lands of the Palestinians.

Netanyahu’s Israel is the equivalent of the Lincoln Republicans 150 years ago. Then  there was no to protect Southern states, who left the voluntary union, a right under the , in order to avoid being exploited by Northern business interests. Subsequently, the Union army, after devastating the South, turned on the American Indians, and there was no to protect American Indians from being murdered and dispossessed by Washington’s armies.

Washington claimed that its invasion forces were threatened by the Indian’s bows and arrows. Today there is international law to protect the Palestinian residents of the West Bank and Gaza. However, every time that the world tries to hold the Israeli government accountable for its crimes, Israel’s Washington puppet vetoes the UN decision.

The notion that Israel is threatened by Palestinians is as absurd as the notion that the US is threatened by , Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Somalia, Pakistan, and Iran. No government of any of these countries has ever made a threatening statement against the US. Even had such a statement been made, it would be meaningless. If a Superpower can be threatened by such impotent and distant counties, then it is not a superpower.

Demonizing a victim is a way of hiding state crimes. The American print and TV media  is useless as a check on state crimes. The only crimes reported by the media are assigned to “terrorists,” that is, those who resist US hegemony, and to , such as and , who liberate truth from official secrecy. Julian of WikiLeaks remains in danger despite the asylum granted to him by the President of Ecuador, as Washington has little regard for international law.

In the US the exercise of the First Amendment is coming to be regarded as a crime against the state. The purpose of the media is no longer to find the truth, but to protect official lies.  Speaking the truth has essentially disappeared as it is too costly to journalist who dare to do so. To keep one’s job, one serves Washington and the private interest groups that Washington serves.

In his November 19 defense of Israel’s latest crimes, President Obama said: “no country on earth would tolerate missiles raining down from outside its borders.”  But, of course, numerous countries do tolerate missiles raining down from the US. The criminal Obama is raining down missiles in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen, and  has rained missiles on Libya, Somalia, Iraq and Syria as well. Iran might be next.

The assault on the Warsaw Ghetto is one of the horror stories of Jewish . Such an event is happening again, only this time are perpetrators instead of victims. No hand has been raised to stay Israel from the goal of the operation declared by Israeli Interior Minister to be “to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages.”
