P C Roberts: Is the War on Terror a Hoax?

By Paul Craig Roberts, lewrockwell.com, Sept. 30, 2011

In the past decade, Washington has killed, maimed, dislocated, and made widows and orphans millions of Muslims in six countries, all in the name of the “war on terror.” Washington’s attacks on the countries constitute naked aggression and impact primarily civilian populations and infrastructure and, thereby, constitute war crimes under law. Nazis were executed precisely for what Washington is doing today.

Moreover the wars and military attacks have cost American taxpayers in out-of-pocket and already-incurred future costs at least $4,000 billion dollars – one third of the accumulated public debt – resulting in a US deficit crisis that threatens the social safety net, the value of the US dollar and its reserve currency role, while enriching beyond all previous history the military/security complex and its apologists.

Perhaps the highest cost of Washington’s “war on terror” has been paid by the US Constitution and civil liberties. Any US citizen that Washington accuses is deprived of all legal and constitutional rights. The Bush-Cheney-Obama regimes have overturned humanity’s greatest achievement – the accountability of government to law.

    I agree with Dr Roberts that the War on Terror has been a great hoax. But the War of Terror is a reality, the reality of American imperialism and its incessant crimes against humanity. The proof lies in the death and destruction of millions of people and there is no end in sight.

    As far as America and Americans are concerned, we can safely say that the warmongers of the military-industrial complex have reaped huge dividends but ordinary Americans have lost and are losing everyday.
