Trump’s Declaration of War – Paul Craig Roberts | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Trump’s Declaration of War – Paul Craig Roberts

If truth can be said, President Trump has declared a war far more dangerous to himself than if he had declared war against Russia or China.

Trump made it abundantly clear that Americans’ enemies are right here at home: globalists, neoliberal economists, neoconservatives and other unilateralists accustomed to imposing the US on the world and involving us in endless and expensive wars, politicians who serve the Ruling Establishment rather than the American people, indeed, the entire canopy of private interests that have run America into the ground while getting rich in the process.

Since the day I was born in the 70's

Russia has been the enemy, or so we were told, even after being allies during WWII. Growing up, if you did or said anything un-american, or sympathized with Russia, you were labeled a "commie-pinko-fag-junkie".. I still don't know what the hell that means, but it obviously has some connotation with Russia.

So the cold war waged on until the early 90's I think when the Berlin wall fell. Maybe I'm a little off here but I associate that event with the end of the cold war. All of a sudden, Washington D.C. had no enemy. This was around 89, 90, 91? And then all too conveniently, some chic invents a story about babies being thrown out of incubators and Saddam becomes the new anti-christ, and then it's non stop Islamophobia to keep the war machine chugging along.

2 Iraq wars, 911, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iran and I'm probably missing a few countries here and there as well as got some events mixed up (oh yeah Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia) but you get the picture.

Fast forward to now and all of a sudden the "Red Scare" is making a comeback.

So over this time the question "Why?" kept repeating over and over in my head, and the answer comes from the article.

"The military/security complex has a 1,000 billion annual budget dependent on “the Russian threat” that Trump says he is going to replace with normalized relations."

1,000 BILLION DOLLARS.. That's 1,000,000,000,000 that the Military Industrial Complex steals from us every damn year by inventing fake enemies that they then must protect us from.

To quote General Smedley Butler, "War is a Racket"..

— That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government..
