The United States and the Israeli regime are the major criminal elements in the global arena and the international community must boycott them, says a political commentator writes for Press TV.
Paul Craig Roberts wrote in a recent article for the Press TV website that the world “prepares its own demise” by tolerating “endless slaughters and endless lies” of the United States and Israel.
“The only hope for life and truth is that the world unite against these two criminal governments, isolate them diplomatically and economically, and make it impossible for their…officials to travel abroad without being arrested and placed on trial,” he said, adding, “Why does the world need Washington and Israel? Unless the world has a death wish, the world does not need Washington and Israel.”
Elsewhere in his comments, Roberts slammed the United States and its European NATO allies for escalating pressure against Russia, which could ultimately lead to a potential world war.
“The deadly consequences of such a war would extend beyond Russia, Europe, and the US to the entire world. The Western use of lies to demonize Russia endangers life on earth and reveals the West to be both reckless and irresponsible,” Roberts wrote.
The analyst also criticized the global community for its silence over the West’s “recklessness and irresponsibility.”
NATO has held a number of war games in Eastern Europe after Ukraine’s Autonomous Republic of Crimea integrated into the Russian Federation following a referendum in March.
NATO has also reinforced its air patrol over the Baltic region, with radar-equipped aircraft making regular flights over the territories of Poland and Romania.
In June, the Western military alliance held military drills near Russia’s western border. Nearly 5,000 troops and 800 military vehicles from 10 NATO member states, including the US, Britain and Canada, participated in the war games near the Latvian capital, Riga.
Russia sees the Western military alliance’s moves as a sign of aggression amid the crisis in Ukraine.
