“WWIII will be caused by the neoconservatives’ pursuit of US hegemony over the world, because Russia and China will not submit to being American vassals,” Dr. Paul Craig Roberts told Press TV on Wednesday.

The neoconservatives are attempting to establish US hegemony over the world, but Russia and China are not willing to submit to being American vassal states, says Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, a former White House official.

Conservative US radio host Glenn Beck said that one country in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) will soon invoke Article Five of the treaty that will lead to the World War III. He made the remarks on Tuesday in the wake of Turkey’s downing of the Russian warplane.

“I do not think that this incident will cause a war,” said Dr. Roberts, who was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal.

“I have been writing for years that WWIII will be caused by the neoconservatives’ pursuit of US hegemony over the world, because Russia and China will not submit to being American vassals,” Dr. Roberts told Press TV on Wednesday.

He added that Russian President Vladimir “Putin is trying to avoid WWIII by using diplomacy with Europe, but European governments are owned by Washington. And China will not put up with harassment in the South China Sea.”
