Nuclear war if Republicans win, says US expert

The gratuitously aggressive US military policy toward Russia will lead to nuclear war, says Paul Craig Roberts.

In an article circulated by Countercurrents.org, he adds, “I am confident that if Americans elect John McCain, or the Republicans steal another presidential election, there will be nuclear war in the second decade of the 21st century. The neocon lies, propaganda, macho flag-waving, and use of US foreign policy in the interests of a few military-security firms, oil companies, and Israel are all leading in that direction.”

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts is no scare-monger. He was Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury in the Reagan Administration. He is a former Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal and a former columnist for Business Week, the Scripps Howard News Service and Creator’s Syndicate in Los Angeles. He has held numerous university professorships, including the William E. Simon Chair in Political Economy, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University and Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University. He was awarded the Legion of Honor by the President of France and the US Treasury’s Silver Medal for “outstanding contributions to the formulation of US economic policy.”

Hello!

It should be noted that Republicans under the leadership of Bush put the fear of God in the deadly terrorists of Afghanistan and Iraq. If not for them, the terrorists would have taken over the world killing people without mercy. Therefore, all the more reason why Republicans should win this time also. The world wants to live in peace and without fear.

Best wishes!
