Washington Arrogance Has Fomented a Muslim Revolution
Says Paul Craig Roberts

“Is Pakistan responsible for the Mumbai attack in India? No."
"Is India’s repression of its Muslim minority responsible? No."
"Is the United States government responsible? Yes."
"The attack on Mumbai required radicalized Muslims."
"Radicalized Muslims resulted from the US overthrowing the elected government in Iran and imposed the Shah;"
"from the US stationing troops in Saudi Arabia;"
"from the US invading and attempting to occupy Afghanistan and Iraq, bombing weddings, funerals, and children’s soccer games;"
"from the US violating international and US law by torturing its Muslim victims;"
"from the US enlisting Pakistan in its war against the Taliban;"
"from the US violating Pakistan’s sovereignty by conducting military operations on Pakistani territory, killing Pakistani civilians;"
"from the US government supporting a half century of Israeli ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from their lands, towns and villages;"
"from the assault of American culture on Muslim values;"
"from the US purchasing the government of Egypt to act as its puppet;"
"from US arrogance that America is the supreme arbiter of morality.”
”. . As Justice Brandeis said, crime is contagious. Government teaches by example, and America’s example is lawlessness. America’s brutal crimes against the Muslim world have invited every Muslim to become a law unto himself – a revolutionary. It is not terror that Washington confronts but revolution.”
“. . .By illegal, uncivilized and undiplomatic behavior, the US has stirred Muslim peoples . . .”
“. . . By destabilizing Pakistan, the US lost a puppet and created an opportunity for Muslim revolutionaries to exploit."
"By enraging India against Pakistan, the Mumbai attack has created new problems for Pakistan that will focus that government’s attention away from combating Taliban sanctuaries on Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan."
"If the US picks up the slack, it will have invaded yet another country and become trapped in a larger quagmire. ..”
“. . . Having fomented terrorism, the American government now pretends to be the innocent victim, just as Israelis, having brought about terrorism by driving Palestinians from their homes and villages, pretend to be innocent victims...”
“. . . Investigative journalist John Pilger has shown that the so-called "moral superiority of the West" is a hoax designed to shield from view the self-seeking West’s crimes against humanity...”
“. . . Obama promised change from this destructive behavior, but how does change arise when the most arrogant woman on earth is appointed Secretary of State and the rest of the new government is staffed with tried-and-true Likudniks....”
