Brexit could break up EU, prevent WWIII: 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.
