Fellow US citizens: are you enjoying living in a police state?  We sincerely hope not but there are an awful lot of Americans who have to wake up and face the facts, putting aside at least for a few moments their faux patriotism.

Paul Craig Roberts, always an interesting person to read, has made some fascinating comments in a new article, among them these:

"It is fashionable in the US and UK governments and among their sycophants to speak of “gangster state Russia.” But we all know who the gangsters are. The worst criminals of our time are the US and UK governments. Both are devoid of all integrity, all honor, all mercy, all humanity. Many members of both governments would have made perfect functionaries in Stalinist Russia or Nazi Germany."

Read the rest of the article here.

Mr Roberts gets his English and American history wrong in this article, utilizing the same Protestant/Whig interpretation of history that has done so much to keep people in ignorance for 400 years.  But please overlook that and read the article because what Mr Roberts has to say is important.

It is a wakeup call.  I hope.

The West does not relate to Russia with an appearance of respect of equals. Thus they exacerbate distrust. For the sake of the good
for the world, the West should grow
up. Grown Up is not always attempting to be the bully. You might think that the West would attempt to be more welcoming to those who have emerged from decades
of harsh circumstance. U.S. Imperialists can't work on those terms I suppose. I do wonder if the
blustering blabbering Neo-Cons could be shut-up if things could work somewhat differently.

I am not suggesting that we go to the left. A thousand nays. I see no
political place to go.
