Dr. Paul Craig Roberts also predicts that “the West is moving toward drawing Russia into the Western system” and as a result, “Russia will lose control.” Unlike his prediction, I think that President Putin is so clever that he takes this action, knowing that he has a good chance of winning.
I find the second article by Machiben (Town Lawyer) very interesting. I think that the phrase of “IS never hurts anybody except common people” hits the nail on the head. The Paris attacks took place in less fortunate areas. It was a very unnatural terrorist event.
If this event had been staged tactfully using the IS by the French government, people who were killed would have been likely to be chosen in advance. In a word, high government officials or the wealth are never attacked by terrorists. They create a chaos they can control.
In all ages, those in power deceive people and build enormous wealth in proportion to the number of the dead.

Guile Replaces The Stick: Washington’s New Approach To Russia
Paul Craig Roberts
November 20, 2015
Washington has learned that threats and coercion do not work against Russia. All the threats have done is to build Putin’s public support to astronomical levels and to unify Russia against the West’s assault. This is a failed policy that Washington is abandoning as Washington sees a new opportunity in Russia’s desire for Western cooperation, not only against ISIL but also on a wide range of other issues.
Realizing that guile can be more effective than the stick, the West is moving toward drawing Russia into the Western system by offering a coalition against ISIL. Once Russia is in a coalition against ISIL, Russia will lose control. This is Washington’s strategy for counteracting the initiative that Russia seized in Syria.
Once Russia is in a coalition against ISIL, Russia will have to make compromises. Putin will be told that Russia can have ISIL, but Russia has to turn Assad’s fate over to the West. If Putin balks, the Western media will blame Putin for topedoing the war against ISIL.
Getting rid of ISIL is more important to the Russian government than saving Assad. If a jihadist Islamic State is established, there will be a base for exporting turmoil into the Muslim regions of the Russian Federation.
Once Russia accepts “cooperation” with the West against ISIL, more “cooperation” will be used to gradually erode bit by bit Russia’s independence and to bring Russian policy in alignment with Washington’s.
Many in Russia believe that the Paris attack proves that Putin was right and that the West now realizes this and will accept Russian leadership in the fight against ISIL. This belief is delusional. Washington will take advantage of Russian desire for Western cooperation and will use this desire in order to bring Russia under Western influence, thus reestablishing Washington’s hegemony.
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal. He was columnist for Business Week, Scripps Howard News Service, and Creators Syndicate. He has had many university appointments. His internet columns have attracted a worldwide following. Roberts' latest books are The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism and Economic Dissolution of the West and How America Was Lost.

IS Won’t Hurt Anybody Other Than Common People
November 21 issue of daily paper Nikkan Gendai “Favorable Impression of Terrorism – “Creation of Economic Bubble by Simultaneous Global Rise in Share Prices”
The daily newspaper Nikkan Gendai alone covers the moment when we can glimpse the force hidden behind the IS.
The G20 summit, which was held on November 15 and 16, agreed to boost anti-terror measures.
On November 20, the United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution to “take all possible measures in accordance with international law” to prevent the recurrence of terrorism.
On November 20, the French parliament approved the bill to extend the state of emergency for three months.
The bill was approved by the French Senate. The bill gained 336 votes in favor, no vote against and 12 abstentions.
As for the National Assembly, we can see only the following report. Does it mean that six lawmakers opposed the bill?
November 20 08:38
BS1 [World News]
<France F2> Lower House National Assembly decided to extend the state of emergency.
The Lower House National Assembly decided to extend the state of emergency for three months. Lawmakers voted the bill in favor, except for 3 socialist party anti-mainstreamers and 3 pro-environment party lawmakers.
Any head of state cannot have an objection.
They can find a good excuse to promote domestic surveillance and crackdown.
Nobody can complain about the abuse of power.
Not only the Abe administration but all leaders gain benefit from terrorism. Therefor, they will never suffer actual damages.
On November 17, the EU decided to use the right of collective self-defense for the first time.
On November 18, aircraft carrier Charales de Gaulle left for the Persian Gulf.
(Incidentally, this is the specified policy which he revealed on November 5.
The Yomiuri November 6, 2015 [Paris: Correspondent Keiichi Honma] France’s President Hollande revealed the policy that France would soon dispatch its nuclear aircraft carrier “Charles de Gaulle” to the Persian Gulf to attack the “Islamic State”)
France, Russia and the U.S. will boost airstrikes all at once.
On November 23, the Anti-IS coalition of 65 countries is to meet.
The demand for weapons will rise significantly and share prices of weapon corporations jump up.
The price of weapons will be covered by tax. In other words, the cost will be borne by the people of each country.
On top of that, global share prices have created “terror bubble.”
The IS brings significant benefits to state power, military-industrial complex and the wealth.
The IS won’t hurt anybody other than common people.
There are too many wrong airstrikes by U.S., French and Russian forces.
While on the other hand, the IS kill or destroy only the targets they aim at and never hit or shoot by mistake.
Who will the IS make beneficiaries or victims?
When the world is fed up with a cheesy slogan “war on terrorism”, who will welcome the resumption of war, which is sure never to be put to an end (The war in Afghanistan has become the longest war in the U.S. history, which has not ended).
We can clearly see who exists behind the IS.
War without conspiracy never exists.
If we are afraid of being called conspiracy theorists, we will not be able to fight.
