Former Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters: Vladimir Putin “is as bad as Hitler”

The sad part is that people like Ralph Peters don’t want to admit that most Americans aren't buying fake news anymore. People are tired of politicians who are actually perpetuating categorical lies, fabrications, and hoaxes.

…by Jonas E. Alexis


I’ve always told people that if they want to be entertained a little, then they ought to grab some munchies and some nice orange or mango juice, sit down, and just listen to a number of New World Order agents on TV. You probably won’t be able to hold your laughter.

Take for example former retired US Army lieutenant colonel, author, and media commentator Ralph Peters. He has recently declared on Fox News that Vladimir Putin “is as bad as Hitler”! Perhaps Tucker Carlson should have brought a copy of Harry G. Frankfurt’s book with him and give it to Mr. Peters.[1]

Vladimir Putin, Peters says, “hates America. He hates us.” Putin, he continues, “isn’t fighting ISIS. He is fighting the anti-Assad people, while letting us fight ISIS.” Peters isn’t that dumb. But he is living in a fantasy world which does not allow him to string two coherent thoughts together. Sometimes I feel sorry for those people.

Peters wrote an entire book in 2006 defending the surge in Iraq.[2] By March of same year, serious thinkers realized that Iraq was a total disaster. Peters risibly wrote an article in the New York Post entitled, “Dude, Where’s My Civil War,” in which he stated:

“The Iraqi Army has confounded its Western critics, performing extremely well last week. And the people trust their new army to an encouraging degree.”[3]

Those who believe that Iraq was a failure, said Peters, were “irresponsible journalists.”[4] Five months later, Peters seemed to have choked on his own words by saying that the “civil war is closer than it was…The leaders squabble, the death squads rule the neighborhoods.” By November of the same year, Peters was even more pessimistic:

Iraq is failing. No honest observer can conclude otherwise. Even six months ago, there was hope. Now the chances for a democratic, unified Iraq are dwindling fast (…) Iraq could have turned out differently. It didn’t. And we must be honest about it.

“We owe that much to our troops. They don’t face the mere forfeiture of a few congressional seats but the loss of their lives. Our military is now being employed for political purposes. It’s unworthy of our nation.”

Peters had more devastating things to say:

“The notion of sending more U.S. troops is strategic and practical nonsense. Had the same voices demanded another 100,000-plus troops in 2003 or even 2004, it would have made a profound, positive difference. Now it’s too late.”

Now Peters is arguing that Putin is evil. He is also advocating for regime change in Syria. He thinks that the American people don’t know about his history. He is just an apologist for the Israeli regime and the Neoconservatives in America. Plain and simple. In fact, he has promiscuously argued that “anti-Israel” is “anti-Semitism.”

The sad part is that people like Peters don’t want to admit that the most Americans aren’t buying fake news anymore. People are tired of politicians who are actually perpetuating categorical lies, fabrications, and hoaxes. Perhaps Peters and his circles need to stop being marionettes for the Israeli regime and the warmongers.

    All those that declare the Putin is like Hitler are closer to Hitler than Putin ever will be. Hitler didn’t commit suicide, because homicidal psychopaths like Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Bush family, Clintons, Obamas and the rest of those freaks that work for the USG have way to much of ” EgoTesticle ” personality disorder – to off themselves. Their purpose is to create death and destruction as long as they can – they’re diseased with it and together they feed off one another. The majority of mass murderers don’t commit suicide before they are caught – they have to be put to death before they are stopped. How many of these types work for the USG – Thousands – I’m guessing.

    “Vladimir Putin, Peters says, “hates America. He hates us.” Putin, he continues, “isn’t fighting ISIS. He is fighting the anti-Assad people, while letting us fight ISIS.”

    That is the worst joke I’ve ever heard. First of all, nobody “lets” the US fight anyone in Syria, as they are in Syria without permission from anyone. More importantly, ISIS would have been dead in Syria years ago, if it weren’t for the USG sustaining their presence. Putin has done nothing to America, but the USG has enforced illegal economic sanctions on Russia, built up NATO troops along their border, sent destroyers into the Baltic Sea, 30 miles off Russia’s coast, put nuclear capable, intermediate range missile launching platform in Romania, and the list goes on. This pud (peters) is likely just another POS telling lies that he doesn’t even believe. I hope he chokes on his lies.

      Terrifying the public hoping they’ll rally around the criminal government is an old and worn out, dirty trick.

    Never trust a guy who’s wife dresses him before he goes to work. Really, are those the red, white and blue shirt and tie colors of subliminal patriotism.

    Why are retired military officers, who are no longer in the military and not even in uniform, still addressed with their former military titles? This is misleading and must be stopped. Address him as Mr. or “You lying propaganda piece of garbage” just like all the rest. We should be addressing all the four star generals who traitorously stood down and did not lift a finger to defend the country on 9/11 as the traitors they are and demand they be arrested and jailed according to the removal of the Constitutional protections in the Patriot Act approved by all but one in the first vote in Congress.

    • wjabbe  July 13, 2017 at 5:19 pm Here are a few brief quotes from this article in Oct., 2013 at a Jewish event in Mass. By Ralph Peters. Not one word about land theft or mistreatment of Palestinians by Israel. He is not an unbiased author.
      Ralph Peters Makes Case For Israel At CAMERA Event
      Susie Davidson

      27 Heshvan 5774 – October 30, 2013
      ““American soldiers have been out in the Iran and Iraq world, and for the last dozen years, they have heard Arabs say they have no problems with America, but just with Israel,” he told the crowd. “It starts sinking in. They start believing that Jews are using America. It’s not epidemic, not virulently active, but it’s there – the question of ‘Why are we supporting Israel?’ ”
      Peters said CAMERA’s “work exposing dishonesty wherever it is found in the media is absolutely vital.”
      One thing Peters is certain of is the need to protect Israel, which he linked to the West. “Israel geographically is in the Middle East,” he said. “But in every other respect, it is about 20 miles off the coast of Florida.”
      Peters denounced those who associate Israel with Western imperialism.
      “They were fighting with homemade weapons against tanks and modern arms,” he said of Israel’s battle for independence. “There are few David and Goliath stories in history that are so inspiring.”
      Israel is hated because it is a success story, and its neighbors share humiliation”, con’t:

    • wjabbe  July 13, 2017 at 5:24 pm

      “Israel is hated because it is a success story, and its neighbors share humiliation over watching the Jewish state ascend from a collection of kibbutzim to what it is now, Peters said.
      “Who started with less than the original Zionist settlers in Israel, not least of which the starving wretched refugees of the Holocaust?” Peters asked. “What did they have in 1947 and 1948, and look at what Israel is today. What a stunning triumph!”
      Apart from the Arab mindset, dysfunctional borders are a major contributor to Middle East instability, Peters told the crowd.”
      Looks like part of the dishonesty of which he speaks lies right here in his own lying words. Peters was an intelligence analyst at a high level, yet he is blinded to the many criminal acts of Israel due to early Jewish influence on him at Penn State University. He fails to see anything wrong with lying and land theft and mistreatment of neighbors and total ignorance of the Golden Rule in Israel today. Shame on Mr. Peters nothing but a propagandist for Israel.

    Well, my apologies, Jonas. I seem to have scanned your article too hastily. Your opening paragraph – even emboldened !

    ‘I’ve always told people that if they want to be entertained a little, then they ought to grab some munchies and some nice orange or mango juice, sit down, and just listen to a number of New World Order agents on TV. You probably won’t be able to hold your laughter.’

  6. paul becke  July 13, 2017 at 2:11 pm

    I mean I know it’s not funny at all, in reality, but does anyone else find it hilarious, listening to some American spokesmen, usually a quite high-ranking political or military dignitary, peddling the most utterly, utterly, shameless fantasmagorical, anti-Assad flights of fancy – propaganda, invariably for some specific, nefarious purpose ? And with a completely straight face, indeed, a very hurt expression, holding forth with a genuine-seeming passion and indignation. The other day, it was the poison gas ‘scare’.

    And then this today. I have to stop reading them, because with the subject matter, it just doesn’t seem right, laughing out loud every few seconds.

    Amidst hundreds – another US MILITARY idiot and a cheap clown. No piece of interest at all. Deep sorrow and political RIP for US establishment.

    Ralph Peters drew up a map of the Middle East he thought “might ease regional tensions” by “reimagining (sic) Middle Eastern and Asian borders along ethnic, sectarian and tribal lines”.

    There are lots of articles on the Peters’ map, some of which have much more readable copies of the before and after Middle East maps. They can be easily located with a simple search (I use DuckDuckGo for searches. Google/Bing/etc. results may be different).

    It’s worth noting that while Peters’ map doesn’t outline “Greater Israel” as Talmudic scholars envision it, the balkanized states clearly do conform to the Yinon plan of creating nations based on ethnic, sectarian and tribal lines that could then be easily dominated by Israel. It’s also worth noting that Peters claimed he wanted to rectify the damage done by the borders imposed by Sykes-Picot by imposing his own borders.

    ‘Pokeberry’ Peters is incapable of ingesting facts – much less dispensing them, by his aimless, rapid-fire discharges. Especially now at the height of pokeberry season when his rantings from the bush mimic the more hilarious scatter-shot emissions of a Whip-Poor-Will’s ass. This ‘Sweeney in the Bushes’ has lost the run of himself and has the runs to boot. His firing-range – on the CNN/FOX scatology index, is the 8-10 foot intellectual void between the sofa and tv where a witless audience of couch-potatoes sits, stares and vegetates in gormless fascination. And boy, with an audience like that – and so close, you just can’t miss, whatever about the facts.

      ‘Sweeney in the Bushes’ – Source and explanation.

      “He marched out like that until he encountered Ronan with eight psalmists from his community. They were blessing the armies, sprinkling them with holy water, and they sprinkled Sweeney with the rest. Sweeney thought they had done it just to mock him, so he lifted one of his spears, hurled it, and killed one of Ronan’s psalmists in a single cast. He made another throw with the second spear at the cleric himself, so that it pierced the bell that hung from his neck, and the shaft sprang off into the air. Ronan burst out:

      My curse fall on Sweeney
      For his great offence.
      His smooth spear profaned
      My bell’s holiness,
      Cracked bell hoarding grace
      Since the first saint rang it –
      It will curse you to the trees,
      Bird-brain among branches.
      Just as the spear-shaft broke
      And sprang into the air
      May the mad spasms strike
      You, Sweeney, forever.”

      Excerpt from “Sweeney Astray” by Seamus Heaney.
