Lew Rockwell: US enjoys sending Tomahawks, killing

Lew Rockwell of the Ludwig von Mises Institute shares his views on the causes for the war in Libya. A lot of oil goes to China, the main potential petrol-consuming rival of the US, he notes. Rockwell argues America is a military empire and does not care if it kills people. He cited the situation in the Iraq campaign, where he said “half a million children were killed” since 2003 when the war was launched.

Thankfully he does. And he forgives.

Any government that would willingly kill even one child is evil and people who believe this criminal behavior is fine are fools.

@signboyy Right on Signboy. Most people really just can't grasp the situation we are all in. Almost every country on this planet have a Central bank that is a private entity. To think they are not linked is ignorance. The first central banks were created by the Rothschilds. They have been running this planet for a couple centuries now. I wish all people would realize that it is all of us against them. Until we come together ,we will continue to be manipulated.

Every major news source, including this one are presented by the elite. Another source to keep the people of this world divided. United we stand, divided we fall. They are very good at what they do. Wake up people

When I first started watching RT most of the news presenters were Russians and would say "the US is doing this" and "the US is doing that". Now most news presenters seem to be American citizens with faint Russian accents saying, "why are WE doing this?" and "why are we doing that". Very interesting change in a fairly short time and very troubling. I appreciate getting news and commentary from RT that you don't get from corporate US networks, but this "we" propaganda angle is just too dishonest.

@Z200a You sir/madame are totally fucking clueless. I have been reading Lew Rockwell for a number of years. Your characterization of him couldn't be further from the truth.

@signboyy sir, you should check out Lew Rockwell's website and podcast, he is far from emotionally charged. He gets it.

I love when she says "most of us couldn't find on a map" – says a lot about their opinion of their viewership, doesn't it?

Ron Paul and Lew Rockwell for President in 2012! Mr. Rockwell is SO RIGHT. Amazing interview. I don't give a damn if RT is paid for by Russia…It is not controlled by US media and therefore mostly speaks the truth! I personally go to YouTube or the internet for my news because I smell SPIN a mile away!

GET US OUT OF THE UN!!! If the UN wants us to fight, they need to pay for it! The American people are tired of paying for endless wars with our sweat equity and the lives of our soldiers!

@Z200a You have no idea what you're talking about. Yes, he attacks government, because government takes everything at the point of a gun, the "democratic process" is completely compromised, and the executive branch has usurped the power the constitution was created to protect us from.

You're part of the problem if you buy into all of this.

@Z200a completely wrong Rockwell wants humanity to be free from coercion and tyranny. The greatest threat of this comes from government. Private wealth is what has made the united states relatively prosperous nation.

@usairways101 You obviously know nothing about him. He's 75 and bikes 5-10 miles every day. That's not falling asleep or being in any way physically incapable of doing his job. He's not an air traffic controller

The U.S. government is trying to keep the oil flowing so that fat craps like Lew Rockwell can still drive their SUVs two blocks to get a big mac at McDonalds. The guy should at least have some appreciation.

No, because it is the US that is occupying and bombing other nations, not Russia.

This video is about the US either helping innocent populations or defending its own citizens over the last 30 years. The Us is not evil, and it is a disgrace to make video's such as these, which try to distort the facts, Should we include President Truman in this clip as he had wars agains Japan and Germany in 1945. The West is an advanced socity and we try to help out nations who suffer the evils of tin pot dictators..

@jjtruman Really! You are clearly lacking the very basic intellectual logic that is the foundation of a thinking man. To help someone, that person must " request " your help. You do not help people against their will. Clearly, the Afghan never ask for the US help, neither did the Irakis, the Lybians, and now the pakis! How do you help people by dropping bombs over the lands, countries, and towns! You must be out of your fucking mind!

It's a little ironic how Russia Today talks about U.S. involvement in wars but they never talk about Russia's wars with Georgia and Chechnya…

Lew Rockwell is on target as usual. The thing is, it's a globalist strategy (Which Rockwell is not a part of) to compartmentalize conflict in order to shift attention from one issue to another while the main issues (being corruption, greed, depopulation, and the intended collapse of basic human rights to create a salve base for the elite) get fundamentally ignored.

You obviously aren't familiar with Lew Rockwell's views or libertarian theory, whether its right or wrong. Rockwell opposes big business almost as much as big government as many libertarians do, because they get their power from government cronyism rather than true competition in a free market where they are accountable to the law and the consumer, and if you think the government fairly represents the people rather than itself and corporate lobbyists then your out of touch with reality.
