Criminal Insanity of US Regime

Criminal Insanity of US Regime

They say absolute power corrupts absolutely.

That adage applies more than ever to the president of the United
States, his administration and the Wall Street flunkeys that sit in
Congress.

But the corruption extends beyond the usual meaning of
a dysfunctional moral compass to include the incapacity
for intelligent reasoning and self-reflection.

The political class of most powerful country on earth has been so
over-indulged in arrogance and hubris that it is no longer able to
realize how ridiculous it appears to the rest of the world.

In short, criminal insanity seems to be the condition of US rulers
and their puppets, including those in the mass media.

The American president and his cronies on Capitol Hill preen and talk
as if into a charmed mirror that reflects loveliness to the beholder,
yet the rest of the world sees ghastly, frightening clowns, loaded up
on self-righteousness, delusion, inordinate firepower and a reckless
ease for squeezing the trigger.

Indeed, such is the ridiculous posing by Washington that the US,
the world’s number-one terrorist state, seems to have added a
new weapon to its arsenal of planet-destroying armaments, one
that induces uncontrollable laughter in victims to the point of
death from asphyxiation or from a busted gut.

President Barack Obama may have been testing out this new
“mass laughter” weapon last weekend when he announced that
he was seeking approval from Congress to launch military
strikes on Syria.

This was after his administration accused the Syrian government of
“murdering over 1,000 of its own people” with chemical weapons in
the suburbs of Damascus on 21 August.

The death of hundreds of innocent civilians, including women
and children, is certainly no laughing matter.

But it is a cruel mockery to their memory that the US president
should try to use these deaths as an excuse to escalate his
transparent and criminal agenda for regime change in Syria.

While the Americans huff and puff that they have “high confidence”
in their secret allegations against the Syrian government of President
Bashar al-Assad, the rest of the world is more convinced that it is the
US-backed mercenaries who committed mass murder with chemical
weapons supplied by Washington’s ally Saudi Arabia.

So out-of-control is the delusional US president that it took his
Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, to make a telephone call
and remind Obama that he is a Nobel Peace Laureate and should
act accordingly instead of playing with fire that might engulf the
region and the entire globe.

“I would like to address Obama as a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
Before using force in Syria, it would be good to think about future
casualties,” Putin said, as if he was addressing an imbecile, which
he was.

“Russia is urging you to think twice before making a decision
on an operation in Syria.”

Apart from the world’s most reactionary and lawless regimes,
Saudi Arabia, and Israel, the rest of humanity is also urging
the American government to think twice before it murders
countless more people in a region already teetering on the
brink of conflagration.

Even the normally gung-ho British have backed away from such
reckless adventurism.

Obama says that he “only” intends “limited missile strikes” on Syria
as a “punitive” measure to deter the future of chemical weapons.

In his address from the White House Rose Garden on Saturday,
Obama spoke with words scented with cloying hypocrisy.

“What message will we send if a dictator can gas hundreds of
children to death in plain sight and pay no price? We are the United
States of America, and we cannot and must not turn a blind eye.”

This is from the leader of the same terror state that supplied
former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein with chemicals weapons
and the coordinates to gas thousands of Iranians and Kurds
during the 1980s; it is the same United States of terror that
dropped white phosphorus on the Iraqi city of Fallujah and
others in 2005-2006 during its genocidal war of illegal
occupation; it is the same terror state that poisoned Iraq and
generations of children with depleted uranium; the same terror
state that supplies Israel and other allies such as Saudi Arabia
and Bahrain with a plethora of toxic chemicals that are then
fired into civilian homes every day of the week.

Nobody in their right mind believes a word that the US rulers
are saying about chemical weapons in Syria.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted how the US says
it has “super convincing” evidence that the Syrian government
is responsible yet the Americans won’t present the supposed
intelligence.

Lavrov also hinted at the lunacy of official American thinking by
pointing out the contradiction in Washington’s claims to support
the elusive peace conference in Geneva but not before unleashing
a blitzkrieg on the country.

“And after they bomb Syria, they will be ready for convening the
conference called Geneva II,” said the Russian diplomat, as if
describing a bloodthirsty psychopath, which is actually appropriate.

The US stands virtually alone in the face of humanity with its
self-righteous regard to bomb any one it wants to based on its
own outrageous self-serving lies.

Even its plaything puppets like UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon,
Canada’s Prime Minster Stephen Harper, the pathetic Arab League
and NATO’s Anders Fogh Rasmussen have all distanced themselves
from the proposed US military attack on Syria.

“I'm comfortable going forward without the approval of a United
Nations Security Council that, so far, has been completely paralyzed
and unwilling to hold Assad accountable,” said Obama.

Comfortable?

With committing a war of aggression by launching hundreds of
cruise missiles on a sovereign country that has not and does not
threaten the US?

What Obama means by the UN Security Council being paralyzed is
that it refuses to bend over backwards to satisfy Washington’s
criminal bloodlust and state terror.

Part of this terrorism is to put a gun to the head of Syria and the rest of the world as the next few days go by waiting for the US Congress
to deliberate on whether or not to grant itself the right to bomb
another country, premised on its arrogant delusions of grandeur and
raving fabrications.

To this end, Obama said:

“Our military has positioned assets in the region. The Chairman of
the Joint Chiefs [General Martin Dempsey] has informed me that we
are prepared to strike whenever we choose. Moreover, the Chairman
has indicated to me that our capacity to execute this mission is not
time-sensitive; it will be effective tomorrow, or next week, or one
month from now. And I'm prepared to give that order.”

Such crazed, self-indicting ranting would be funny, if it weren’t
so appallingly criminal.
