Paul Craig Roberts: Is Neoliberalism Killing Russia? (Plus: American Gangsterism around the globe)

PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS—Most of the world sees this as “US gangsterism.”  But no one does anything about it.John Wight asks:  “Does anybody really think that Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Elliott Abrams care one bit about the welfare of the Venezuelan people? These are thugs in tailored suits whose views are far closer to Al Capone than to Thomas Jefferson.”  https://www.rt.com/news/452274-venezuela-us-intervention-gangsterism/President Maduro’s failure to arrest Juan Guaido, the puppet chosen by Washington to be the Empire’s front man in Venezuela, might spell the end of Venezuelan democracy.  The Venezuelan military will wonder why they are at risk when all Maduro has to do is to arrest Guaido, try the traitor, and execute him.

ANN GARRISON—The real lynchpin to busting this mob hit before it happens is UK Labour Party leader and international-law crusader Jeremy Corbyn. Were he to become prime minister, he could say, “Enough of these gangsters,” have the bail-jumping charge dismissed, and refuse to extradite Assange to the mob’s Washington headquarters. The smear tactics that the British mob’s media soldiers have already deployed against Corbyn couldn’t get worse.
