According to experts, relations between the United States and Russia are so poor now that they are comparable with the cold war period. It seems very unlikely that Putin will ever back down.
Dmitry peskov, Kremlin spokesperson has stated that the United States is becoming unpredictably aggressive towards the Russian Federation, and so it is imperative that the Russians take the necessary measures to protect their country and interests.
Remarks from several Russian officials seem to confirm the view of western ‘Kremlin-watchers’ that Russia is in fact, preparing for war. In Russia people have even been warned to find out where their nearest fallout shelter is located. They have even gone so far as to order all of their officials to fly home any relatives living abroad.
Pentagon chiefs have warned that Russia could easily level a quite devastating nuclear attack on a NATO country. It seems while neither side wants to be responsible for completely igniting the flame of confrontation between Russia and the United States it seems unavoidable. If relations do not improve almost overnight, full blown war is inevitable.
Cold War deployments are being set up as we speak by the Russian Military, nuclear bombers sweep the US border, and plan are being set in motion for new bases in China. Why hasn’t the United States taken measures to prevent this war from happening? It seems neither side is going to back down, there is a lot more going on under the surface that we are not aware of at this time.
It as been stated by Russian Lt. Gen. Evgeny Buzhinsky that:
“If you want a confrontation, you’ll get one. But it won’t be a confrontation that doesn’t harm the interests of the United States. You want a confrontation, you’ll get one everywhere,”
“As [Russian President Vladimir] Putin sees it, it is full-scale confrontation on all fronts,”
Putin is primed and ready to go to war with the United States. It is just a matter of time and waiting for the perfect moment to strike. We are at a very dangerous point and there in no clear sign as to just what is going to happen next. We can only hope that somehow something comes about to break the tension and resolve our issues before it is too late.
