Gorilla Radio Flashbacks with Chris Cook, Paul Craig Roberts May 22, 2006

Last week, newly minted Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper pondered aloud his bewilderment at the behaviour of a certain world government saying, “It boggles the mind that any regime on the face of the earth would want to do anything that would remind people of Nazi Germany." But Mr. Harper was not referring to the United States, where daily the nation more resembles the hated fascists of the last century. In his eyes, America is an exemplar to be imitated by Canada, as witnessed in Afghanistan today. No, Mr. Harper’s statement, made without irony, was aimed at Iran, based on the entirely false information “reported” by the National Post. But, Stephen’s astonishment is boggling the minds of many in the U.S., and elsewhere, as the Bush regime continues a Reich-like march, assailing nations abroad with unprovoked wars, and rumours of war, and eviscerating the Constitution at home. Paul Craig Roberts is an economist, journalist, and co-author of the book, ‘The Tyranny of Good Intentions.’ Roberts describes himself still as a conservative Republican, though left behind by what the Bush administration and its policies are making of America.
