Putin should cut off the gas to Europe. Paul Craig Roberts.

The Tap

This week, Paul Craig Roberts argued that unless Russia soon fulfills on its thus-far merely verbal threat to stop supplying gas to Europe (now that the new Obama-controlled Ukraine is hostile to Russia and already owes Russia billions for gas transited and continuing to transit through Ukraine to Europe), there will be an increasingly likely if not already inevitable nuclear war.  

“If Putin does not put his foot down hard and make clear to the Europeans what the stakes are, Washington will succeed in its determination to drive the world to war, and ‘exceptional and indispensable’ Americans will die along with all the rest.”

Address These Sobering Questions Right Now

Roberts argues that to pull the plug on Europe’s economies right now will be far less damaging than a nuclear war between NATO and Russia would be, and that whereas Russia will suffer economic hardship from the loss of the European market, that’s nothing compared to the immense losses that Russia, like the West, will suffer from a nuclear war.

Whereas European losses would be only for a year or two, while alternate energy-sources come and go to replace Russian gas, losses from a nuclear war would be permanent, and would be virtually everywhere.

Roberts concludes with the following sobering questions for “dear readers”:

When has Washington told you anything that was not a lie?  Washington’s lies have caused millions of casualties.  Do you want to be a casualty of Washington’s lies?

Do you believe that Washington’s lies and propaganda about the Malaysian airliner and Ukraine are worth risking life on earth?  Who is so gullible that he cannot recognize that Washington’s lies about Ukraine are like Washington’s lies about Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Iranian nukes, and Assad’s use of chemical weapons?

Do you think that the neoconservative influence that prevails in Washington, regardless of the political party in office, is too dangerous to be tolerated?

  1. A nuclear war is preposterous, let me tell you why. Just one of the nuclear bombs would affect the area for a very long time, here and elswhere. Everyone wants our minerals, our water and whatever else is being hidden from us and we want theirs. Now we know of the ability of our secret government to weaponize weather, create earthquakes, make voices heard in the enemies head as in the Gulf War. That is only a small part no doubt there is technology out there we have not even heard of or know of its existence and I am also sure that other large nations have that and possibly more.

    Nuclear is up there with the horse and carriage why several people have told of the fact we have bases on the moon and on Mars. Even on astronaut said that, look it up. We have an air force that is out of this world literally. Secrets abound and we are not privileged to know them. They have to keep talking nuclear because we are not to know what they really have.

    Have you ever noticed how many movies have been made of all kinds of catastrophies and what do they use? Nuclear bombs every time. Why we have lasers more powerful for the job not to mention the technology we don’t know about.

    Nuclear doesn’t make any sense. Oh it makes a good threat we used them in Japan to let the world know that but that was a long time ago. A lot has changed. I believe we have created a weapon involving sound that can bring down a whole city yet preserve the land and all that is in it.

    I talked of this on another forum a long time ago. I also mentioned that when the time came they would throw everything at us at once, wars, disease, economic crisis and hunger. I saw it coming just didn’t know when.

    TPTB had great plans and a time table but that has fallen apart many times. Those that are aware know this and there is a lot of infighting among them. Things do not go well a lot of the time. They should have known better. It is very hard to control a whole world and different governments. Think of how hard it is to organize a party. Now multiply that by thousands (governments). We are not told of half the problems and believe me we have given them many a headache.

    Let’s continue we are the enemy so lets be so eh?

      “What is Israel to do?…Israel has been building nuclear weapons for years…
      What would serve the Jew-hating world better in repayment for thousands of years of massacres but a nuclear winter?…The ultimate justice?”

      “We Israelis possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets…We have the capacity to take the world down with us.”

      There IS one ‘country/state’ (stolen) insane enough to use them, Susan. Several of their ‘leaders’ have said as much.

      We’re not dealing with rational creatures here.

      1. Maybe so but I am sure we have shared with Israel just about every weapon we have. They have blackmailed us into doing so. So I would not be surprised if they have a lot more too.
