WWIII Threat To Turn U.S. Into Radioactive Wasteland Broadcast On Mainstream Russian TV (VIDEO, FULL TEXT, TRANSLATION)

This is the talking head quoted below.  

From Lance's simulation of WWIII
Over the Ukraine.  And not even on its behalf.  Please tell this child of the Cold War that after all this time TPTB are not so stupid.  And whatever you do, don't lie to me. Paul Craig Roberts thinks that the situation as it stands now in Ukraine, which is a situation best understood as being primarily between the United States and the Russian Federation -- a reprise of the Cold War -- could easily 'go nuclear.'  Actually, "easily" understates the stated opinion by a large margin.






In the former Russian provinces of eastern Ukraine, Putin’s low-key approach to the strategic threat that Washington has brought to Russia has given Washington a chance to hold on to a major industrial complex that serves the Russian economy and military. The people themselves in eastern Ukraine are in the streets demanding separation from the unelected government that Washington’s coup has imposed in Kiev. Washington, realizing that its incompetence has lost Crimea, had its Kiev stooges appoint Ukrainian oligarchs, against whom the Maiden protests were partly directed, to governing positions in eastern Ukraine cities. These oligarchs have their own private militias in addition to the police and any Ukrainian military units that are still functioning. The leaders of the protesting Russians are being arrested and disappeared. Washington and its EU puppets, who proclaim their support for self-determination, are only for self-determination when it can be orchestrated in their favor. Therefore, Washington is busy at work suppressing self-determination in eastern Ukraine.
This is a dilemma for Putin. His low-key approach has allowed Washington to seize the initiative in eastern Ukraine. The oligarchs Taruta and Kolomoyskiy have been put in power in Donetsk and Dnipropetrovsk, and are carrying out arrests of Russians and committing unspeakable crimes, but you will never hear of it from the US presstitutes. Washington’s strategy is to arrest and deep-six the leaders of the secessionists so that there no authorities to request Putin’s intervention.
If Putin has drones, he has the option of taking out Taruta and Kolomoyskiy. If Putin lets Washington retain the Russian provinces of eastern Ukraine, he will have demonstrated a weakness that Washington will exploit. Washington will exploit the weakness to the point that Washington forces Putin to war.
The war will be nuclear.

So without further ado, the 21st century "we will bury you."  The link to the translation is here, the original here.

Be sure to read the comments, too.  And leave one, if you please:  communication is one of the reasons I blog.





UPDATE

On behalf of the Paul Craig Roberts post, above, I received this reply to a request for a credible alternative to the bleakness quoted at the outset of this article, from Gillian, who is listed as the author (?):

The nuclear option is mentioned by PCR because the people running the world are insane. That much is clear. There are neo-cons in US “think tanks” who believe that the US first strike capability would allow it to nuke Russia without consequence, which is absurd. What business is it of the United States what the Ukrainians desire to do in THEIR country? It is time the United States start realizing that no one wants us to be policeman of the world. There are sufficient needs at home – e.g. INFRASTRUCTURE and JOBS – that are desperately needed. Money being wasted maintaining 600+ overseas military installations would be better spent rebuilding the American infrastructure – roads, bridges, electrical systems, schools, clinics, etc. Instead, these posturing fools would provoke a war with Russia over RUSSIAN TERRITORY (The Crimea region) just so they can deflect attention from their failing FIAT-BASED monetary PONZI scheme.

I suppose that softens it a bit.


I don't want us to end like that.
