It may be a little literal and Roberts has perhaps the zealotry of the convert, but there is no doubting the aggressors on planet Earth are the imperial neocons.
Paul Craig Roberts- It is 1939 all over again. The world waits helplessly for the next act of naked aggression by rogue states. Only this time the rogue states are not the Third Reich and Fascist Italy. They are the United States and Israel.

The targeted victims are not Poland and France, but Iran, Syria, the remains of the Palestinian West Bank and southern Lebanon.

The American mass media is overjoyed. War coverage attracts viewers and sells advertising.

The neoconservatives are ecstatic. Hegemony uber alles is back on track.

The US Air Force can’t wait “to show what it can do.”

Defense contractors see no end of the profits.

Under cover of the mayhem and propaganda, Israel can grab the remains of the West Bank and have another go at grabbing the water resources of southern Lebanon.

Unlike the US and Israel, Iran is neither occupying any other country’s territory nor threatening to invade another country. Nevertheless, propaganda against Iran is spouting from US and Israeli mouths at an increasing rate. Lie after lie rolls off the tongues of leaders of the “two great democracies.”

I don't think the US and Israel are in any position to expand the war in Iraq.

1) Israel doesn't have resources for a long war.
2) Portions of the US ruling class are opposed.
3) Portions of the US ruling class want diplomacy. I think after Bush is gone, the ideas in his doctrine will be gone.

Speaking of that, I like to encourage everyone to get a hold a documentary called "The Carrier"

Watching that, was very comforting; to realize what a hollow tiger paper American military is. Faith in machines!

That's all it is.

Soldiers who are soldiers out of DESPERATION; out of broken lives.

Soldiers who are an extension of the machines they operate, soldiers who seek their soul and identity in the sophistication of the machines!

Such an army has NEVER won throughout history.

Destroy they may; but what is at stake to loose for America, is the greatest of all!

Japan survived the nuclear holocaust; so will Iran! Survival is in the character of a culture that inhibits a land! But, will America recover from such a moral decay in less than a century? I am doubtful!
