Brexit could break up EU, prevent WWIII: Paul Craig Roberts

“Hopefully, a result of the Brexit will be the breakup of the European Union and NATO,” says Dr. Paul Craig Roberts.

Britain’s exit from the European Union (EU) could probably prevent the United States from launching World War III to establish control over the entire world, says Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, an American economist and author.

Dr. Roberts, who was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Friday, a day after British citizens voted in a historic referendum to leave the EU, a bloc that the UK joined more than 40 years ago.  

“Hopefully, a result of the Brexit will be the breakup of the European Union and NATO – the British have shown that a large country, important numbers can lead. So this should encourage smaller countries, who are being ruthlessly exploited, such as Greece and Portugal, Italy and Spain to also vote to leave,” he said.

“The European Union is a dictatorship; there’s no democracy in it. They have a parliament for show but it has no power. The power is in a non-elected commission that makes the decisions. So the government of the EU is removed from the European people,” he stated.

“And this is beginning to dawn on people. And it’s used by German and Dutch banks to loot the poor countries like Greece,” the analyst stated.

“Also, if the EU breaks up, then mostly likely the NATO and NATO is the cover mechanism for Washington’s aggression. The only reason Washington has been able to destroy Libya and Iraq and Afghanistan and tried to destroy Syria and to attack Iran with sanctions, the only reasons Washington could do that is because of NATO,” he noted.

“So if NATO were to break up, Washington’s cover for its aggression would be gone, and Washington could no longer use NATO to drive Europeans into conflict with Russia… and Iran,” he pointed out.

“So this exit from the EU on the part of the British has the promise of saving humanity from World War III, because Washington is determined to have World War III in order that it can establish control over the entire world, which means Russia, China and Iran,” he said.

“Washington will not give up this goal, and the only way it can be frustrated is to have the EU and NATO break up. So hopefully the British exit would be the beginning of the breakup of these two most evil of all institutions,” the journalist emphasized.

“But the fight is not over… perhaps it has to have really yet begun, because the American Central Bank, the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, and the Bank of Japan, and George Soros, most likely will now conspire to attack the British pound, driving it down and down and terrorizing the UK economy in order to make the British think ‘Oh, we made a huge mistake. Let’s go back in. Our economy is being destroyed.’ This is entirely possible,” Dr. Roberts warned.
