– Paul Craig Roberts – Russia To Unleash Ultimate Black Swan Against The West (King World News, Dec 20, 2014):
Today Dr. Paul Craig Roberts warned King World News that the Russians are going to unleash what he called the “ultimate black swan” against the West. Dr. Roberts also discussed how a terrifying series of events would then bring the Western financial system to it knees as the banking system completely collapses.
Dr. Roberts: “I was listening to the news today and there were all these self-righteous people just happy as all get out that they had finally stomped Russia into the ground and ‘Russia is now finished,’ and Russia was broken and ‘would soon be an American vassal state where it belongs.’ And I was listening to this rot and got to thinking, ‘How can people be so utterly stupid?’ But they are, and they are just as stupid in Washington.
