Martin Armstrong

Martin Arthur Armstrong is the former chairman of Princeton Economics International Ltd. He is best known for his economic predictions based on the Economic Confidence Model, which he developed.

George W. Bush attempted to condemn Putin’s invasion of Ukraine but had a Freudian slip and revealed his own war crimes. “The result is an absence of checks and balances in Russia, and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq — I mean of Ukraine,” Bush said. You cannot make this stuff up. Everyone laughs at his slip of the tongue reference about a decision his administration made that caused one of the longest US wars in modern history and claimed thousands of lives.

America invaded Iraq in 2003 under the false pretense of “weapons of mass destruction.” As we now know, no weapons were found, and the excuse was a plain lie. The assassination of Saddam Hussein crippled Iraq’s government and economy. On the other hand, Putin cited what he claimed to be a valid reason to enter Ukraine. The West only condemns wars that they cannot profit from waging.
