Paul Craig Roberts: The Collapse Of Western Morality

US Rep. Mike Rogers, a Republican, of course, from Michigan, who is on the House Subcommittee on Terrorism, has called for Manning's execution. According to US Rep. Rogers it is an act of treason to report an American war crime. In other words, to obey the law constitutes "treason to America." US Rep. Rogers said that America's wars are being undermined by "a culture of disclosure" and that this "serious and growing problem" could only be stopped by the execution of Manning. If Rep. Rogers is representative of Michigan, then Michigan is a state that we don't need. The US government, a font of imperial hubris, does not believe that any act it commits, no matter how vile, can possibly be a war crime. One million dead Iraqis, a ruined country, and four million displaced Iraqis are all justified, because the "threatened" US Superpower had to protect itself from nonexistent weapons of mass destruction that the US government knew for a fact were not in Iraq and could not have been a threat to the US if they were in Iraq. When other countries attempt to enforce the international laws that the Americans established in order to execute Germans defeated in World War II, the US government goes to work and blocks the attempt. A year ago on October 8, the Spanish Senate, obeying its American master, limited Spain's laws of universal jurisdiction in order to sink a legitimate war crimes case brought against George W. Bush, Barack H. Obama, Tony Blair,and Gordon Brown.

Personally, I avoid people who are glaring examples of the Peter principle.  In this case, Mr. Roberts is clearly a man who got to where he is by pleasing his superiors.  Either that, or he has recently gone senile.  As evidence, I present this exchange



His response to me :


If I were as utterly stupid and ignorant as you, I would not be broadcasting it to others.

If temperatures in the towers were of sufficient  heat to weaken steal such that there was uniform collapse, paper, in file cabinets or not (the flimsy cabinets themselves would have melted), would have reached combustion temperatures long before the steel weakened. I don't know why such ignorant, utterly stupid, totally brainwashed low grande morons like you dare to write to someone who knows what he is talking about.  Where do such total dumbshits like you come from?

I mean, really, this man can not even spell?

I have yet to see any evidence presented to me by a so-called truther that was not obfiously stupid, false, doctored etc.

Here is but one example:

I have asked on several occasions and have never had an answer, which does not mean that there isn’t one, how millions of pieces of unburnt, uncharred paper can be floating over lower Manhattan from the destruction of the WTC towers when the official explanation of the destruction is fires so hot and evenly distributed that they caused the massive steel structures to weaken and fail simultaneously so that the buildings fell in free fall time just as they would if they had been brought down by controlled demolition.

1. the fires occurred only on about 8 to 10 floors of a 100 story building. Now this may come as a shock to you, but by the time of the collapse any such pieces of paper would have been entirely consumed. The rest of the 90 stories that were not touched by fire would have a lot of paper that was not touched by fire. In addition, most paper would have been in file cabinates. I would think that even someone with an IQ of 70 would understand how 90 stories could easily contribute the equivelant of 50+ boxes of paper per floor of financial offices.

As to the collapse. IT WAS NOT AT FREE FALL SPEED. It was about 15% greater. Anybody with a basic degree in physics would understand that this is exactly what would happen.

You did not cite the " demolition experts". All the ones that I found on the internet think that truthers are idiots. Perhaps you have others. And by demolition experts, I do not mean someone trained in the military to blow up buildings, but those few that actually bring down large buildings.

Let me say this again. I have not seen a single piece of evidence --- and by evidence I do not mean words or testimony which I have also found to be weak --- but actual evidence that was not false on its face.

I particularly love the nano thermite idea. Was this put in place at the time of construction before any nano-technology actually existed, or was it done by that swarm of invisible agents who went into the building opened up walls, placed the wires and timers and "nano thermite" and then covered everything up without anybody seeing them. I would love to see a timeline on that.

The best description of your believing the big lie is this

Again, please just one piece of evidence that supports controlled demolition that is not false on its face.
