Are You Ready to Die? by Paul Craig Roberts

A provocative question and a provocative article, from Paul Craig Roberts at

In George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel, 1984, information that no longer is consistent with Big Brother’s explanations is chucked down the Memory Hole. In the real American dystopia in which we currently live, the information is never reported at all.

On April 26—16 days ago—Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznihir, Deputy Chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the Russian Armed Forces, stated at the Moscow International Security Conference that the Operations Command of the Russian General Staff has concluded that Washington is preparing a nuclear first strike on Russia.


The Times-Gazett in Ashland, Ohio, was the only US print media that a Google search could turn up that reported this most alarming of all announcements. A Google search turned up no reports on US TV, and none on Canadian, Australian, European, or any other media except RT and Internet sites.

I have been unable to find any report that any US Senator or Representative or any European, Canadian, or Australian politician has raised a voice of concern.

No one in Washington got on the telephone to tell Putin that this was all a mistake, that the US was not preparing a nuclear first strike on Russia, or ask Putin how this serious situation could be defused.

Americans do not even know about it, except for my readers.

I would have expected at least that the CIA would have planted the story in the Washington Post, the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, and NPR that General Poznihir was expressing his personal opinion, nothing to be taken seriously. But apparently Americans and their European vassals are not to even know that such an accussation was made.

As I reported some time ago and more recently in my column about North Korea, the Chinese leadership has also concluded that the US intends a nuclear first strike against China.

Alone either Russia or China can destroy the US. If they act together, the destruction of the US would be redundant. What is the intelligence, if any, and morality, clearly none, of the US leadership that recklessly and irresponsibly invites Russia and China to preempt Washington’s attack on them with an attack on the US?

  1. This author is a scaremongering, asinine, fool. He talks about living through the Cold War as if he’s unique and a special being. Many of us lived through that period, and there were scary times and events, but our gov’t was in no way pure and angelic, nor are they today. It remains up to each of us to live the life we have before us in the best way that we can and understand that ‘sh!t happens’. We can either stand up and say ‘NO’ or we can leave, to hide out somewhere we imagine that we’ll be snowflake safe. I’d rather live as a human being, than live frightened to a panic condition by someone like this author.


    • . . . we can leave, to hide out somewhere we imagine that we’ll be snowflake safe.
      That would be the place where you can dismiss “[t]his author [as] a scaremongering, asinine, fool.”


  2. ~~~Or perhaps this is a false flag ,red herring/strawman operation promulgated by the politburo to justify a massive buildup of their own, in violation of the various treaties they signed off on?
