[The US government and the British government systematically disregard international law notably by “planning, preparing, initiating and waging wars of aggression”, primarily on behalf of Israel. Paul Craig Roberts, the architect of Reaganomics, and former asst editor of the Wall Street Journal provides regular commentaries on the approaching war with Russia and correcting the lies of the US government and the western media. The systematic prevarication and false flag deceptions have made dialogue impossible for the Russians. – Gordon Logan]
Washington’s Deception Is Aimed at Russia
by Paul Craig Roberts
According to a report on RT, Secretary of State Tillerson has on CBS backed away from his previously reported aggressive rhetoric reported by the presstitutes against Russia and Syria. https://www.rt.com/usa/384142-tillerson-syria-regime-change-isis/ 
According to the RT report, Tillerson said that Washington’s plan is to defeat ISIS, not to bring regime change to Syria. It is up to the Syrian people, Tillerson reportedly said, to choose their own president. Tillerson said on CBS that “We’ve seen what violent regime change looks like in Libya and the kind of chaos that can be unleashed and indeed the kind of misery that it enacts on its own people,” he said on CBS. “I think we have to learn the lessons of the past,” he emphasized on ABC, adding, “Any time you go on and have a violent change at the top, it is very difficult to create the conditions for stability longer term.”
If the report is correct, it could either be good news or another Washington deception in advance of Tillerson’s visit to Moscow, the purpose of which will be to bring the Russian government into Washington’s orbit and an agreement to replace Assad with an American vassal.
Perhaps the Russian government will keep in mind Tillerson’s revealing statement that the message the US sent with its illegal, war crime, unprovoked attack on Syria “is that the violation of international norms . . . will no longer be tolerated.”
Of course, who is the violator of “international norms.” No one but Washington (and Israel). Washington is the greatest violator of “international norms” in modern history. Washington has invaded Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, organized the destruction of Libya, Somalia, and conducted attacks on Pakistan and Yemen, and organized a coup against the democratically elected government in Ukraine.
Only Washington has a list of crimes this long. And we can add to it Honduras, Brazil, Argentina, and in the works, Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia.
If Russia falls into Washington’s trap of deception, Russia will be destroyed.
[It should be added that the latest reports are that a column of US armored vehicles in desert camouflage has been detached from the contingent on the Russian border and is now moving to Romania, prior to being moved south for the invasion of Syria by 150,000 US troops, ostensibly to fight ISIS, the terrorist organization created by the Pentagon under President Obama. – Gordon Logan]
