With people around the world worried about the escalating crisis in Greece and conflicts in the Middle East and Ukraine, today former U.S. Treasury official, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, warned King World News that the Greek government may be assassinated if they pivot East to stop World War III.
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: “The Greek people and the Greek government have before them the unique opportunity to prevent World War III. All the Greek government needs to do, if the Greek people will get behind the government, is to default on the loans, resign from the EU and from NATO, and accept the deal that the Russians have offered them….

“This would begin the unraveling of NATO. Very quickly Spain and Italy would follow. So southern Europe would desert NATO and so would Austria, Hungary and the Czech Republic. NATO is the mechanism that Washington uses to cause conflict with Russia. So as the EU and NATO unravel, the ability of Washington to produce this conflict disappears.
The Greek government understands that what is being imposed on Greece is not workable. Since the (implementation of) austerity the Greek economy has declined by 27 percent. That’s a depression. And they keep hoping that the Germans wake up one day and realize that austerity is not the way you cure debt, and that the Greek government cannot agree to conditions that drive the Greek population into the ground. They (the troika) are talking about (a) genocide (of the Greek population).
The Russians understand that Greece is being plundered by the West and met with the leader of Greece and offered him a deal. They said, ‘We’ll finance you. But not to pay off the German and Dutch banks, the New York hedge funds or the IMF.’”
Dr. Roberts' Amazing Predictions From February 4, 2015
Eric King: “Dr. Roberts, this touches on a point that you made during a February 4 (KWN) interview. You said:
“There is much more involved here with Greece than just the interests of the creditor banks, who still want to be paid 100 cents on the dollar. There is another strong interest and this is the interest of the centralizing European Union government and the interest of the European Central Bank as the policy-maker for all of the countries. So they are using the Greek crisis to establish that ruling power structure. That makes it difficult to make an agreement with the new Greek government to ameliorate the conditions imposed on Greece. So it makes the EU inflexible. That inflexibility gives Greece the cards to say, ‘We’re not playing your game. We’re going to play a different game and accept Russia’s offer.’”
Was The Greek Government Threatened With Assassination?
Eric King continues: “You said that back on February 4. Here we are coming to the end of June and there’s still no deal. So that was a correct prediction on your part. But you also went on to say:
“We’ll see whether the Greek government does that. Now of course they may not be allowed to. They may be assassinated. It’s entirely possible. I’ve never thought that the United States would allow a new government in any of its vassal states to rise up and become independent of Washington’s control. So the new Greek government officials may have an ‘accident.’ All kinds of terrible things can happen to people, and have, that get out of sync with Washington. We’ve had several cases in Latin and South America of leaders who wouldn’t follow Washington’s line having mysterious deaths. There have been a number of them who have been overthrown in CIA organized coups.
Eric King continues: “This Greek drama has been incredible and you have been in front of this story the entire way. You were the first to predict that Russia would get involved and you predicted this deal wouldn’t (immediately) get done. But these threats that have been on the table are a bit terrifying if you are the Greek government because you are having to worry about being assassinated (if you don’t comply). Is that last part of the puzzle the reason why they haven’t been able to work with the Russians or the BRICS Bank? To (simply) default and say, ‘We’re not going to be debt slaves to the West (and the IMF). We’re going to set up our own currency. We’re going to reboot here and we are going to look to the East.’”
Dr. Roberts: “Eric, you summed it up very well. That’s exactly the case. It could well be that the Greeks know they can’t default and leave or they will simply be assassinated. This may have been made clear to them.
If You Leave The EU, You Are Dead
The troika has no interest in the facts of the matter. They have another agenda that we already discussed. And the Greek government has to see that there is no interest on the part of the troika to resolve the issue. That does suggest they understand that the real solution is not open to them. That they will not be permitted to leave the EU and NATO and make this deal with the Russians. I wouldn’t be surprised if they have simply been told, ‘You can make a good show of it, but if you leave (the EU,) you are dead.’
Will The Greeks Stand Strong And Save The Planet From World War III?
Otherwise there is this chance that the Greeks, by defaulting and leaving Europe, begin a process of unraveling NATO. Therefore, the Greeks have in their hands the ability to save the planet from World War III.” ***KWN has now released one of the most important and powerful interviews that Dr. Paul Craig Roberts has ever given.
