Paul Craig Roberts served as an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration earning fame as the “Father of Reaganomics,” but don’t hold that against him. I have great respect for his insights and utterings on the present state of democracy in America and in the world. This article from Countercurrents.org is a “must read.”
Here’s Roberts’ bottom line:
“Why is the US making itself impotent fighting wars that have nothing whatsoever to do with its security, wars that are, in fact, threatening its security?
The answer is that the military/security lobby, the financial gangsters, and AIPAC rule. The American people be damned.”
