Dr. Paul Craig Roberts:
The World Is Now At
The Edge Of The Great Abyss
Dr. Roberts references an article by Orlov which concludes that the U.S. is a dead nation, still walking but no longer a uni-power .. on Russia & recent geopolitical developments: "It is my conclusion that Washington is aware of the constraint that the desire for Western acceptance puts on the Russian government and that this is why Washington, in a direct thrust at Russia, was comfortable orchestrating the coup that overthrew the elected Ukrainian government .. Western reporting and think tank and university reports on Russia are propaganda and are useless to understanding the situation .. It is reassuring to see some realism creeping back into Washington attitudes toward Russia. However, realism is still a minority view .. In my opinion, the chance of nuclear war from Neoconservative intention, miscalculation or false launch warning remains high. The provocations of US/NATO military forces and missile bases on Russia’s borders are reckless as they build tensions between nuclear powers. It is in times of tension that false warnings are believed and miscalculations occur. In the interest of life on earth, Washington should be de-escalating tensions with Russia, not building them. So far there is no sign that the Neoconservatives are willing to give up their hegemonic agenda for the sake of life on earth."
