Senior NATO general warns U.S. risks nuclear war with Russia within a year

America vs Russia
May 2016BRUSSELSNATO risks a nuclear war with Russia within a year if it does not increase its defense capabilities in the Baltic States, one of the alliance’s most senior retired generals has said. General Sir Richard Shirreff, who served as NATO’s Deputy Supreme Allied Commander in Europe between 2011 and 2014, said that an attack on Estonia, Lithuania or Latvia – all NATO members – was a serious possibility and that the West should act now to avert “potential catastrophe”.
He has written a fictional book 2017: War with Russia, but told BBC Radio 4’s Today program the events it describes were “entirely plausible.” General Shirreff said: “The chilling fact is that because Russia hard-wires nuclear thinking and capability to every aspect of their defense capability, this would be nuclear war. We need to judge President Putin by his deeds not his words,” he added. “He has invaded Georgia, he has invaded the Crimea, he has invaded Ukraine. He has used force and gotten away with it.
“In a period of tension, an attack on the Baltic states…is entirely plausible.” NATO members would be obliged under Article 5 of its founding treaty to come to the defense of another member if it came under attack. General Shirreff said that Mr. Putin could be persuaded into an intervention in the Baltic by a “perception” of weakness in NATO, and predicted that, as in Crimea, the Russian president would present his actions as an act of defense to protect the large Russian-speaking minorities in those countries. NATO has already stepped up defenses in the Baltic states, but General Shirreff said that it needed to “raise the bar sufficiently high for any aggressor to say it is not worth the risk.” –Telegraph

    The USA starting so many wars over the last 50 years and this guy is still stupid enough to say it is Russia’s fault. What an A HOLE! When God decides the time is right Russia WILL use nuclear bombs but it will not be against Europe, it will be against USA and rightly so. Revelation Chapter 18. There will be many nations doing the same as the Bible states that God will make them all hate the harlot.They will all come against her. In one hour she will burn and have famine and pestilence. The Elite Illuminati Satanists are salivating over this. Our once beautiful USA has become a filthy toilet of perversion and violence and has thrown Jesus out and caressed other gods to enter.
