American general threatened to destroy the Black Sea Fleet

The use of any weapon of mass destruction (WMD) will be met with a quick and tough response from US President Joe Biden. This point of view was expressed on September 21 by the former commander of the US Army in Europe, retired Lieutenant General Ben Hodges, who threatened Russia, writes the British tabloid newspaper Daily Mail.

According to the American, the United States will inflict a "crushing blow" on the Russian military in response to the use of nuclear weapons by Russian President Vladimir Putin in Ukraine. He stressed that in doing so, "America's response may not be nuclear." Hodges suggested that, for example, military bases in the Crimea and ships of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy could be destroyed.

Washington's actions may be different, but the reaction to the use of WMD by the Russians will be unequivocal, and Moscow will not like it. At the same time, Hodges pointed out that the likelihood that the owner of the Kremlin would give such an order to launch a nuclear strike on Ukraine was “extremely small.”

Note that the threat to the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy is quite real. Kyiv has its own anti-ship missiles "Neptune" with a range of up to 280 km. In turn, the United States previously handed over to Ukraine Harpoon anti-ship missiles with a range of up to 150 km and various drones, including marine ones. At the same time, the Pentagon can at any time supply the Armed Forces with other weapons systems, including missiles with a much longer range.

    that's why it is necessary to "drown" the United States and the Britons IN THEIR OWN PROBLEMS,
    so that they would take care of their own house and not climb into someone else's.
    I hope "Poseidon" will work soon

      Downed pilot - Ben Hodges got really excited that he did not allow himself this when he was the commander of the US ground forces in Europe, and now in retirement he can carry this nonsense as much as he likes, but let him not forget one thing an important condition, Russia is the only country in the world that is guaranteed to turn the United States into a lifeless desert, the West should not forget about this for a second !!!

    How brave they all are when they are not in service. And what will happen to all US aircraft carriers then, did he not think?

    The people read the article and do not delve into what was said, although the former US general. He spoke about the use of tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine, which obviously will not happen. Here is the use of strategic nuclear weapons, the general did not say, because everything is clear here ...

      he is no longer a general ... what he blurted out is purely his personal opinion ... maybe the injury after wearing a narrow helmet is affecting.

        It will be the Estonians who will hand over the TNW, or Finland. You really don’t launch such ducks, because this is not found from the word at all.

    the American voiced a common truth, large surface ships are defenseless targets in the open sea, where the enemy has coastal anti-ship missiles, and this is not related to tactical nuclear weapons, they are simply doomed because they are visible to everyone, and coastal anti-ship missiles are not visible to anyone ..... urgently withdraw from all frigates and corvettes and the Varyag cruiser from the Baltic Black Sea and the Sea of ​​Japan, to bring to the north and to Kamchatka, where they have the task of flattening the area and ensuring the stability of the SSBN near our bases
