Examiner: If Putin Shut off Oil to Europe It Would END Ukrainian Crisis Instantly

On Sept. 12, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was a guest on King World News to talk about the state of the U.S. economy, and geo-political events that are occurring between America, Russia, and Europe in regards to the ongoing Ukrainian civil war. During his 17 minute interview, Dr. Roberts addressed the financial war that being waged between the two superpowers that is threatening to tear apart Europe and bring most of the world into an all out global conflict. And after a week where the world saw the Eurozone backtrack on their plans to sanction Russian oil companies opposite to U.S. demands, Dr. Roberts stated outright that Europe has no choice but to reject increased pressures on Russia’s primary energy industry because they know that if Putin were to shut off oil and natural gas to Europe in retaliation for further sanctions, then the entire Ukrainian crisis would end in an instant as Europe would capitulate to Russia and completely alienate the U.S.

KONY 2012 Africa’s bin Laden: US Manipulative Propaganda For Oil

According to their website, the American NGO, Invisible Children, claims now to have had over 80 million viewers to their YouTube video, “Kony2012,” since its release on YouTube a few weeks ago. For anyone with the patience to sit through the entire YouTube of Kony2012, it is questionable how truthful the figure of 80 million viewers is. Eighty million is unprecedented in YouTube history by all accounts. The video features such prominent Hollywood personalities as Angelina Jolie, George Clooney, Lady GaGa, Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs and other notables. It’s a slick, sentimental story directed by Jason Russell, a 33-year-old now-hospitalized American filmmaker who apparently just underwent a bizarre mental disconnect on the streets of San Diego.[1] The YouTube video depicts a young Ugandan, Jacob Acaye, whom Russell claims he befriended some ten years earlier after Acaye escaped conscription into Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) as an 11-year-old killer. The film portrays Kony as the world’s worst beast and terrorist, in effect, Africa’s Osama bin Laden. [2]
