A Decisive Shift In The Power Balance Has Occurred — Paul Craig Roberts

A Decisive Shift In The Power Balance Has Occurred

October 10, 2015.

by Paul Craig Roberts

The world is beginning to realize that a seachange in world affairs occured on September 28 when President Putin of Russia stated in his UN speech that Russia can no longer tolerate Washington’s vicious, stupid, and failed policies that have unleashed chaos, which is engulfing the Middle East and now Europe. Two days later, Russia took over the military situation in Syria and began the destruction of the Islamic State forces.

Perhaps among Obama’s advisors there are a few who are not drowning in hubris and can
understand this seachange. Sputnik news reports that some high-level security advisors to Obama have advised him to withdraw US military forces from Syria and give up his plan to overthrow Assad. They advised Obama to cooperate with Russia in order to stop the refugee flow that is overwhelming Washington’s vassals in Europe. The influx of unwanted peoples is making Europeans aware of the high cost of enabling US foreign policy. Advisors have told Obama that the idiocy of the neoconservatives’ policies threaten Washington’s empire in Europe.

Several commentators, such as Mike Whitney and Stephen Lendman, have concluded, correctly, that there is nothing that Washington can do about Russian actions against the Islamic State. The neoconservatives’ plan for a UN no-fly zone over Syria in order to push out the Russians is a pipedream. No such resolution will come out of the UN. Indeed, the Russians have already established a de facto no-fly zone.

Putin, without issuing any verbal threats or engaging in any name-calling, has decisively shifted
the power balance, and the world knows it.

Washington’s response consists of name-calling, bluster and more lies, some of which is echoed by some of Washington’s ever more doubtful vassals. The only effect is to demonstrate Washington’s impotence.

If Obama has any sense, he will dismiss from his government the neoconservative morons who have squandered Washington’s power, and he will focus instead on holding on to Europe by working with Russia to destroy, rather than to sponsor, the terrorism in the Middle East that is overwhelming Europe with refugees.

If Obama cannot admit a mistake, the United States will continue to lose credibility and prestige around the world.

    Joke!! What is this man on. We know what is happening and we know why. The whole bloody sham has come to light. Obama is a frontman for his handlers. He has no sway in this latest development. Putin has thrown them into the light. Now they go after China. The Cabal are both brainless and dangerous. Pushing for war. Let’s all hope that Russia China and Iran can cleanse this planet of the NWO, root and branch.

    That guy in the pic behind Paul Craig “Washington” Roberts has his hand in his coat also (Napoleon iluminati sign) .

    Paul Craig throws in a morsel truth but acts like the world is not run by the 3 most powerful corporations on earth, and D.C. is number 3 in line behind the London Crown temple which prints our money and the vatican. Lets make it simple, the queen bows to the pope, obama bows to everybody including the Japanese royal family and the pope for some reason bows to Nuttyahoo’s secretary.

    What does he mean, continue to lose credibility and prestige, that was lost after 911. When will these idiots realise we’ve had enough of their lies and deceit.

  5. Lynn says:

    Well said driver. We have had enough bs. Time to call them all out.

    Good piece by Paul Craig Roberts. The decline in American power and influence in every sphere over the past decade has been quite startling – and much of it has been self-inflicted. It is in the interests of the world, though, that the US retains some power to balance Russia and China.
