JUST LIKE MAJOR POWERS BEFORE WW I, WASHINGTON IS DRIVING THE WORLD TO WAR

There is nothing more difficult to carry out nor more doubtful of success nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate a new order of things. [Nicolo Machiavelli (1469 – 1527) – from “The Prince (1513)]
Every time I see another blunder by the would-be creators of the “new” New World Order, I am reminded of the above warning by the father of political maneuvering published 500 years ago in Florence, Tuscany. Guess our new New World Order would-be leaders did not read “The Prince” by Machiavelli. Heck they probably did not even read the history of World War I. Which erupted exactly 100 years ago this summer.
Are they aware that Hitler also claimed to be building a New World Order with his Third Reich? As did the Bolsheviks with their “Communist International” (see New World Order Flag, Nov 21, 1999). And look at them all now…
For, if they had our new NWO builders read history, and had taken to heart Machiavelli’s prophetic wisdom, they would not be treading so happily and carelessly on the dangerous path they are on today.
For the past 2-3 weeks, Elizabeth and I had been watching a fascinating BBC TV series – “Fall of Eagles.” The 13-part program first aired 40 years ago (in 1974). The series portrays historical events from 1848 to 1918, dealing with the ruling dynasties of Europe in Austria-Hungary, Germany, Russia, the Habsburgs, the Hohenzollerns and the Romanovs respectively. The Fall of Eagles happens as a result of World War I.
Everybody knows, I suppose, that the shot that started WW I was fired in Sarajevo, Bosnia, on June 28, 1914 by Gavrilo Princip, a Serb patriot. He assassinated the heir to the Austrian imperial throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand. But the seeds of WW I had been planted much earlier…
What started the ball rolling toward an eventual World War was Austria’s annexation of Bosnia in 1908. The move was supposed to be a part of a secret deal cooked up by Russia’s Foreign Minister Alexander Izvolsky and Austrian Foreign Minister Alois Lexa von Aehrenthal. When Austria acted unilaterally and grabbed Bosnia in Oct 1908, a seething Serbia could hardly believe this action, and demanded Russian intervention. The Russian Tsar acquiesced, invoking the traditional Slavic brotherhood between Russia and Serbia. This left Izvolsky holding the bag.
It took six years of maneuvering and diplomatic doubletalk for the alliances to form which faced off against each other in the summer of 1914. Here are the major players int he war.
By the time the curtain fell on the darkest years in human history before Hitler, about 37 million people died. That was the price of the diplomatic miscalculation by the Russian and Austrian Foreign Ministers.
Yet the world had evidently learned little from this tragedy. Two decades later, Hitler was readying his troops for another war. By the time WW II ended, about 60 million people were killed, about 2.5% of the world population at the time.
And now, we have another world power confrontation brewing between U.S. and Russia. Substitute Bosnia for Ukraine, and you can see why this writer said a few days ago, “it’s just like before WW I.”
So I was very surprised to see that another political analyst made the same analogy in a radio interview back in March. His name is Paul Craig Roberts. He is a former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration. And what he had to say is both true and scary. It never fails to amaze how world leader seem unable to learn from history. Which is why so many of them are doomed to repeat it. Like the Austrian and German emperors 100 years ago, or Hitler 20 years later.
What follows are the excerpts from that 45-minute radio interview. I have also included below a direct Youtube link so you can listen to it. And at the end of this story, you will also find a link to a full transcript.

JUST LIKE BEFORE WW I
It was Washington’s intent to capture the Ukraine, put it into NATO so the Washington can put missile bases on the Russian border.
What you have are insane people in Washington driving the world to WW3 and you have insane leaders in Europe enabling the Washington to take this step.
All Merkel had to do was say no to (Russia) sanctions. That would be the end of crisis. Instead she gave in bribes and threats and lined up with Washington. So it is just like WW1 – you can sit here and watch what is happening and you can see it is leading directly to war and everybody is full of delusions.
[“This is just like before WW I” is exactly what the Truth in Media editor said to his wife BEFORE becoming aware of this interview]
NEOCONS IN OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DRIVING ANTI-RUSSIAN FOREIGN POLICY
The national security adviser Suzan Rice is a neocon. The Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland, who planned and organized the American coup in Kiev, she is a neocon. She is married to another neocon Robert Kagan. Samantha Powers is also a neocon, married to another neocon. So the principle players in the Ukrainian take-over by Washington are neoconservatives. They are rabidly anti-Russian.
WASHINGTON IS DRIVING THE WORLD TO WAR
If people in the world have any awareness, they would be in the streets violently protesting what Washington is doing, because what Washington is doing is clear – they are driving the world to war. It’s not a question of sanctions and 300.000 jobs. That’s all irrelevant. What the real issue is – we all gonna be blowed up, vaporized, because Washington is in hands of such insane criminals. Look what they’ve done in 21st century. How many countries they destroyed already: Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya…
If you look at Libya, it’s hundreds times worse than under Qaddafi.
Well, of course. They continue this violence everywhere. Yemen, Pakistan, Somalia. They now have an African Command. They’ve got American troops in Africa. They’re conducting NATO exercises all around Russia’s borders as we speak. They are crazy. They are insane and everybody is delusional. You have no idea what is going happen to you.
Alright, do you see any similarities between Kosovo and Crimea, let’s say?
You see, we stole Kosovo. We did it, we stole it. Washington stole it. In Crimea the people themselves are traditionally Russian. So they took their fate in their own hands. Russian didn’t do anything. The Crimeans voted to end association with Ukraine …and… to join back to Russia. So in that sense it’s totally different (Kosovo and Crimea).
Does Obama say that Crimea vote is not legal?
Yes, that’s what he says. But what is he saying is – it’s OK if Americans steal provinces from countries and set them up as puppet states. It is not legal for people to exercise self-determination. Well of course, Obama is lying through his teeth. He is an idiot. He is a liar.
What he says it totally false. Everybody that knows anything knows that he is totally false.
American “Agitprop” Media
The Clinton regime permitted 5 mega companies to consolidate the entire American media. So all their broadcast licenses are dependent on government whether it renews them or not. So they cannot go against government.
And they are no longer run by journalists. They are run by corporate advertising executives and former government officials. So they’re not run by journalist and they don’t practice journalism. They serve as a ministry of propaganda. Gerald Selente, he has named them “presstitutes.”
