TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Every action has a reaction, equal and opposite. Blow up the Nord Stream pipelines? Okay, we've entered a new phase, one in which the United States is directly at war with the largest nuclear power in the world. It doesn't mean it'll go nuclear immediately but it does suggest there could be consequences. If we actually blew up the Nord Stream pipelines, why wouldn't Russia sever undersea internet cables? What would happen if they did that?
What would happen if banks in London couldn't communicate with banks in New York? Just that one piece of it, leaving aside its potential effects on our power grid. But let's just say the banks couldn't communicate would each other for one day. What would the economic effect of that be? It would cascade downward into your house. We could have an actual collapse. We could wind up very quickly in third world conditions. Those of the stakes.
