Washington’s Belligerence Can Produce A World Holocaust
Paul Craig Roberts
Recently I have been receiving a number of requests for my opinion of the Jewish holocaust. These requests are a puzzle to me as it is a topic unrelated to my commentaries on economics, law, current foreign affairs, and a looming showdown between Washington and Russia in Syria. I don’t know whether to be flattered that readers think that I know everything about everything, or whether these requests are efforts to set me up as a “Holocaust Denier,” a charge that can be used to discredit and close down my website.
The holocaust that I am interested in is the one that Washington’s aggression against Russia, aggression aided by Europe, is preparing for our future. This would not be a holocaust of a few million people but of a few billion and perhaps the entirety of planet Earth. I haven’t the time or energy to investigate the holocaust associated with the Second World War, but Ron Unz, a remarkable person and a Jew, whose website you should daily visit—http://www.unz.com — has, as an objective outsider, had a good look, and you can read it here: http://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-holocaust-denial/
He has also posted this early work on the subject: http://www.unz.com/book/arthur_r_butz__the-hoax-of-the-twentieth-century/
I am focused on trying to make people aware that Washington’s belligerence toward Russia is driving the world to nuclear war, and that Washington has used various false flag events, dating from September 11, 2001, to destroy the US Constitution and to accumulate all power over the American people in the executive branch.
This task exhausts my time and my energy. I cannot take on more controversies. As I have said in my defense of Noam Chomsky, who many denounce for not disputing the 9/11 official story, no person who has taken on so many controversial issues as Chomsky can afford to take on yet another.
Those of us who try to tell you the truth are not all-seeing gods. We are flesh and blood and are limited by the number of subjects in which we have competence or something approaching competence.
In his ability to process, assimilate, and analyze information, Ron Unz is about as close to a god as a human can get.
As for courage, there are none more brave. Here are four paragraphs that few would have the courage to put in print:
“Back in those late Cold War days, the death toll of innocent civilians from the Bolshevik Revolution and the first two decades of the Soviet Regime was generally reckoned at running well into the tens of millions when we include the casualties of the Russian Civil War, the government-induced famines, the Gulag, and the executions. I’ve heard that these numbers have been substantially revised downwards to perhaps as little as twenty million or so, but no matter. Although determined Soviet apologists may dispute such very large figures, they have always been part of the standard narrative history taught within the West.
“Meanwhile, all historians know perfectly well that the Bolshevik leaders were overwhelmingly Jewish, with three of the five revolutionaries Lenin named as his plausible successors coming from that background. Although only around 4% of Russia’s population was Jewish, a few years ago Vladimir Putin stated that Jews constituted perhaps 80-85% of the early Soviet government, an estimate fully consistent with the contemporaneous claims of Winston Churchill, Times of London correspondent Robert Wilton, and the officers of American Military Intelligence. Recent books by Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Yuri Slezkine, and others have all painted a very similar picture. And prior to World War II, Jews remained enormously over-represented in the Communist leadership, especially dominating the Gulag administration and the top ranks of the dreaded NKVD.
“Both of these simple facts have been widely accepted in America throughout my entire lifetime. But combine them together with the relatively tiny size of worldwide Jewry, around 16 million prior to World War II, and the inescapable conclusion is that in per capita terms Jews were the greatest mass-murderers of the twentieth century, holding that unfortunate distinction by an enormous margin and with no other nationality coming even remotely close. And yet, by the astonishing alchemy of Hollywood, the greatest killers of the last one hundred years have somehow been transmuted into being seen as the greatest victims, a transformation so seemingly implausible that future generations will surely be left gasping in awe.
“Today’s American Neocons are just as heavily Jewish as were the Bolsheviks of a hundred years ago, and they have greatly benefited from the political immunity provided by this totally bizarre inversion of historical reality. Partly as a consequence of their media-fabricated victimhood status, they have managed to seize control over much of our political system, especially our foreign policy, and have spent the last few years doing their utmost to foment an absolutely insane war with nuclear-armed Russia. If they do manage to achieve that unfortunate goal, they will surely outdo the very impressive human body-count racked up by their ethnic ancestors, perhaps even by an order-of-magnitude or more.”
If you are interested in the holocaust, Unz’s long essay will show you where the information, both pro and con, can be found.
My interest is in the present time, not in the past. Donald Trump was the only candidate for president who emphasized the necessity of normalizing relations with the other major nuclear power. The military/security complex saw this commitment as a threat to their massive budget and power and orchestrated “Russiagate” in order to prevent President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia.
The CIA-led attack on President Trump has had the full support of the Democrats and the liberal-progressive-left who are agitating for the impeachment of President Trump, thereby removing the only politician with enough wits to see the danger in the extremely high tensions between Washington and Russia.
If the propaganda campaign against Trump succeeds, whoever follows him in office will have to show hostility toward Russia or suffer the same fate. Therefore, it is a reasonable conclusion that at this present time the only persons who stand between us and nuclear Armageddon are Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
One can understand the power-crazed greed of the military/security complex, but
what explains the death wish for the planet of the Democratic Party and the American liberal/progressive/left? Have these people been struck dumb with the blind and ignorant hatreds of Identity Politics? How is it possible for so many people to have no comprehension whatsoever that belligerence toward Russia has dire implications for life on earth? How stupid and corrupt do you have to be to believe that saving the bloated budget and power of the military/security complex and having a Democrat in the White House are more important than peace with Russia?
In my recent interview with Italian journalist Costantino Ceoldo, I stress Europe’s responsibility for the dangerous tensions that exist with Russia. Why do European politicians have more loyalty to Washington’s belligerence than to life on planet Earth?
