A Decisive Shift in the Power Balance Has Occurred

By Paul Craig Roberts

October 11, 2015 "Information Clearing House" – The world is beginning to realize that a sea change in world affairs occurred on September 28 when President Putin of Russia stated in his UN speech that Russia can no longer tolerate Washington's vicious, stupid, and failed policies that have unleashed chaos which is engulfing the Middle East and now Europe. Two days later, Russia took over the military situation in Syria and began the destruction of the Islamic State forces.

Perhaps among Obama's advisors there are a few who are not drowning in hubris and can understand this sea change. Sputnik news reports that some high-level security advisors to Obama have advised him to withdraw US military forces from Syria and give up his plan to overthrow Assad. They advised Obama to cooperate with Russia in order to stop the refugee flow that is overwhelming Washington's vassals in Europe. The influx of unwanted peoples is making Europeans aware of the high cost of enabling US foreign policy. Advisors have told Obama that the idiocy of the neoconservatives' policies threatens Washington's empire in Europe.

Several commentators, such as Mike Whitney and Stephen Lendman, have concluded, correctly, that there is nothing that Washington can do about Russian actions against the Islamic State. The neoconservatives' plan for a UN no-fly zone over Syria in order to push out the Russians is a pipe dream. No such resolution will come out of the UN. Indeed, the Russians have already established a de facto no-fly zone.

Putin, without issuing any verbal threats or engaging in any name-calling, has decisively shifted the power balance, and the world knows it.

Washington's response consists of name-calling, bluster, and more lies, some of which is echoed by some of Washington's ever more doubtful vassals. The only effect is to demonstrate Washington's impotence.

If Obama has any sense, he will dismiss from his government the neoconservative morons who have squandered Washington's power, and he will focus instead on holding on to Europe by working with Russia to destroy, rather than to sponsor, the terrorism in the Middle East that is overwhelming Europe with refugees.

If Obama cannot admit a mistake, the United States will continue to lose credibility and prestige around the world.

  1. About time the world started acting sane. Imagine living in a small community and showing off to your neighbors how you are so smart to have tools that will burn up. blow up, cut up, shoot up chop up and other things like that all of your neighbors stuff, cows, friends and homes etc. Who in their right mind would live like that? Imagine it even smaller like in your own household.Each member seeking to out do the other and "dumb" family members had to sleep outside with no food. Smaller yet is your own body. What if your arm fought with your heart and you liver could not get along with your lungs and wanted to take over the entire body? It all balances and repeats throughout no matter what the size or how many organisms are working together or in come cases working against each other. Ending ISIS and the wars and returning to peace is long overdue and going back to war needs outgrown permanently.
