General Sir Richard Shirreff warns that NATO is now facing ‘nuclear war with Russia in Europe,’ and states that America itself is technically already at war with Russia. The fuse has already been lit.
According to Article 5 of the Washington Treaty, an attack on any NATO member country is an attack on all member countries. This means that the United States would be at war with Russia if Russian troops were to set foot in Baltic countries.
Shirreff writes that:
“A Russian attack on the Baltic states puts America at war with Russia — meaning nuclear war because Russia integrates nuclear weapons into every aspect of its military doctrine,”
This is, of course, very true. Along with that Shirreff states that Russia and the United States are already at war. He mentions the while currently unproven but still very likely email hacks and WikiLeaks bringing Clinton campaign emails to the public are what we consider cyber warfare.
“And don’t think Russia would limit itself to the use of tactical nuclear weapons in Europe. Any form of nuclear release by the Russians would almost certainly precipitate nuclear retaliation by the United States, and the dreadful reality of mutually assured destruction and the end of life as we know it would follow,”
Which is no exaggeration, nuclear war could very well end life as we know it. This is something we should think about, considering just a few days ago a fleet of Russian warships passed through the English Channel and were closely monitored by the Royal Navy. This situation could blow up literally any minute now. Who knows just what is to come next. For more information on the ‘nuclear war’ to come please watch the video below.
