Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Dictator Warmonger Barack Obama on verge of Perpetrating a HITLER-esque, NAZI ATROCITY against Syria...

 Dr. Paul Craig Roberts writes a landmark editorial on the devolution of America's governance and American society under the evil, sadistic, malevolent influence  of  war-lusting  perpetrators using deceit and lies.

     The sole shortcoming of this,  Dr. Robert's  sad enumeration of America's rapidly degenerating social structure and international affairs, is that  although Dr. Roberts does mention Israel as being at the core of   America's  ruthless, metastasizing,  "NAKED AGGRESSION" and  "UNAMBIGUOUS WAR CRIME(s)"   mass-murderous wars in the Mideast  (and, indeed, across Africa, South Asia, and everywhere on the late great planet earth),   he fails to outline the locust-like  swarm of  AIPAC, ADL and AJC  jewish puppet-masters, "handlers" and jewish war-lobby front groups  (like the supposedly "American" named PNAC,  "Project for a New 'AMERICAN' Century") who  dominate and control  not only everything that puppet tyrant Barack Obama does,  but everything that Hillary, Kerry,  Pelosi, Biden, and all the other "Democratic" Party officials of any standing do as well...
(and as well of course the AIPAC/jew-war-lobby  subservient  McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, John Boehner, Newt Gingrich (Bush, Cheney, Chertoff, Wolfowitz, Mukasey, Bolten, Libby, Wurmser, Feith, Zackheim, Podhoretz, Levey, Berkowitz, Fleischer)  (et al, ad naseum) blatantly warmongering, treasury-looting,  royalist, Tory, treasonous sell-outs to a hostile foreign power   Rethuglican party)....

Washington preens itself on being “the world’s greatest democracy.” Washington uses the claim that it is spreading democracy as a justification for its naked aggression--a clear and unambiguous war crime--against other countries.
Washington cloaks its illegality in democratic rhetoric despite the obvious fact that its wars are not a consequence of democratic decision.** 
**[note: "On May 13, 1846, the U.S. Congress overwhelmingly votes in favor of President James K. Polk's request to declare war on Mexico in a dispute over Texas."     Although Americans in  Texas had already declared and won independence from Mexico to 'justify'  Polk's request for war before Congress;   this was clearly a war of U.S. territorial aggression that had the support of the American people,  in no small part because the Texans, upset that Congress had already rejected annexation once, were now openly flirting with America's nemesis, Great Britain, and Americans and Congress were once more facing  the prospect of England's  mighty navy  controlling the ports and waters around New Orleans,  where the Mississippi River discharged all of the commerce and resources from America's western  'heartland' states to world, sea-borne trade.   And,  indeed, Polk's war  'won' for America not only the future states of California, New Mexico, Arizona,  and Nevada, but proximity to  Oregon and Washington as well. 
  The real cost of  this popular war - America's bloody conquest of these future states during the Mexican-American war -  would come later, in the next war. Anti-Slavery Whigs in Congress had first rejected the Annexation of Texas  because it would be admitting a slave state -  until the threat of  Britain's royalist empire implanted on America's southern coast gave Polk the momentum he needed to launch his war - the inability of Americans to wean themselves from the dehumanizing economy of slavery would propel the nation into an even, far  more bloody and mass-murderous conflict, the Civil War just 2 decades later - the real cost of  Polk's popular war.]

Washington has used deception and lies to gain acceptance of its extra-constitutional and extra-legal wars, but Washington’s wars have all been launched outside the constitutional/democratic framework of the United States.

Obama’s war against Libya occurred without the participation of Congress. And now Obama is again revealing that the US is so far removed from democracy that he plan[ed] to attack Syria without a vote by Congress. Where is the democracy when a Caesar makes the decisions that the Constitution reserves to Congress?

Polls indicate that 80 percent of US citizens believe that a US military attack on Syria requires approval by the House and Senate. Yet, the Obama regime is purposely avoiding any such vote. The Obama regime has also ignored the letter signed by 162 members of the House of Representatives demanding to see evidence, debate it, and vote prior to any US military strike.

It is an act of treason for the US military to carry out any war orders without congressional authorization. Any military commander who violates his oath to defend the Constitution of the United States has committed high treason against the United States. If the US were truly a lawful democracy, such commanders would be subject to arrest and trial.

The fact that the executive branch and the military operate outside the Constitution and democratic process is proof that the US is not a democracy.

In yesterday’s columns I noted that Obama, his media whores, and worshiping Obamabots are overlooking considerations of critical importance.  One is that military aggression is a war crime. In the past, Bush and Obama had cloaks for their war crimes, such as a “coalition of the willing,” NATO, some limited “congressional consultation” or vague resolution, or a UN resolution that is then stretched to cover the regime’s actions.

None of these things are adequate legal cover. Their worth comes from the fact that other countries and institutions besides the US executive branch are involved in the war crime. There is safety in the numbers. Charging the entire Western world with war crimes means only that the entire Western world will defend the validity of their excuse.

But this time the regime has no cover. There is no “coalition of the willing,” no UN resolution, no NATO support, and Obama has ignored both Congress and the American people. 
For Obama to proceed with his attack on Syria would be the action of an unaccountable dictator. He would have no cover for his war crime.

Obama’s effort to rush to war with Syria has already destroyed the credibility of the US government as a truthful, honest government. The entire world, even Washington’s most subservient puppet states, have recognized that Washington has no evidence to back its accusations. No one believes Obama or Kerry. Both have revealed themselves to the entire world as brazen liars.

 [America's  government and corporate owned mass-media are behaving EXACTLY AS THE NAZIS -  inverting reality and portraying NAKED, mass-murderous AGGRESSION as "saving western civilization."]
This has destroyed all trust in the US government. And now Obama seems determined to prove that America has a dictator, not a democracy.

It is difficult to imagine a more serious blow to the US than the one Obama has delivered.
All of the important props for Washington’s propaganda, such as “the world’s greatest democracy,” have been kicked out from under what now stands revealed as a criminal enterprise.

Russia’s President Putin has openly expressed his contempt for the lies that are flowing nonstop from the mouths of Obama and Kerry. Putin called Obama’s claims “utter nonsense.” Putin said that if the Americans have any proof, “let them show it to the United Nations inspectors and the Security Council.”

In fact, the evidence that exists indicates that the chemical attack originated with the rebels and may have been an accident caused by “rebels” transporting chemical weapons given to them by the Saudis but without instruction to correct handling. The reporter, Dale Gavlak, who spoke with the rebels, who were themselves harmed by the weapons, is a Middle East expert from the University of Chicago who has reported for the Associated Press, National Public Radio, and the BBC.

For another perspective unreported by the US media, see Ambrose Evans-Pritchard’s report in the UK Telegraph that Saudi Prince Bandar, head of Saudi intelligence, attempted to bribe and intimidate Putin into abandoning Syria to the Americans. Reportedly, Bandar offered Putin a Saudi-Russian oil cartel and offered Putin protection against Chechen terrorist attacks on Russia’s Winter Olympics.

As farfetched as all of this sounds to Americans, it is more plausible than anything Washington says.

Washington’s claim that the Syrian “rebels” have no access to chemical weapons is obviously FALSE. 
On May 30, an Istanbul newspaper reported that Turkish police apprehended al-Nusra “rebels” with sarin gas that al-Nusra planed to use in an attack on Adana.

Having repeatedly declared that the use of chemical weapons requires a military response from the US, what will Obama and Kerry do when it comes clear that the “rebels,” not Assad, are responsible for the chemical weapons?   Will Obama and Kerry attack the “rebels”?    Will Obama and Kerry attack Saudi Arabia for giving the chemical weapons to the “rebels”?
 Don’t hold your breath.

My Ph.D. dissertation supervisor, G. Warren Nutter, was brought into the Pentagon by Melvin Laird as Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs and given the task of winding down the Vietnam War. Nutter opposed US foreign policy based on secrecy and deception. He was convinced that US foreign policy had to be transparent, consistent with the country’s principles, and carry public support. A policy based on secrecy and deception would undermine democracy and the trust of the public and foreigners in the US government.

Today there are no Warren Nutters in Washington, and there have not been such people in government for many years. As Nutter foresaw, the consequences are the loss of public confidence in government and the isolation of the US in world affairs.

Obama now stands on the verge of military aggression as isolated as Adolf Hitler when Germany attacked Poland.

UPDATE: 4:00 PM US East Coast Time

The White House Fool, learning from the alternative media and not from his moronic advisers that he is isolated in the world and has no cover for his war crime against Syria, has announced that he is going to wait until he gets approval from Congress.

No doubt the White House Fool was also moved by the letter from 161 members of the House of Representatives that to engage in hostilities without congressional authorization is unconstitutional. The letter contains the threat of impeachment:

“We strongly urge you to consult and receive authorization from Congress before ordering the use of U.S. military force in Syria. Your responsibility to do so is prescribed in the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution of 1973.

“While the Founders wisely gave the Office of the President the authority to act in emergencies, they foresaw the need to ensure public debate – and the active engagement of Congress – prior to committing U.S. military assets. Engaging our military in Syria when no direct threat to the United States exists and without prior congressional authorization would violate the separation of powers that is clearly delineated in the Constitution.”

We can be thankful that at least 161 members of Congress recognize their responsibility to hold the executive branch accountable to the Constitution. Perhaps the lies from the executive branch became so brazen that they lost their effectiveness. Instead of fearing a hyped “terrorist threat,” people now see the threat of a White House Tyrant.
