Pentagon warns of high risk of nuclear war with Russia


The United States believes that the risks of starting a nuclear conflict are now greatly increasing. In this regard, Washington must change its approach to the conduct of the war. This, according to the press service of the Pentagon, was announced by the head of the US Strategic Command, Admiral Charles Richards.


The US military believes that a direct nuclear conflict between states is possible in the foreseeable future. He also expressed concern that nuclear deterrence has ceased to function effectively in the world. The United States has not faced such serious threats and opponents on the world stage for a long time.

Russia and China can move to any level of violence they choose, in any area, with the help of any tool around the world.

Richards noted.

According to the admiral, there is a need to revise and modernize the nuclear triad and its control system, as the danger of confrontation with Moscow and Beijing continues to grow.

Along with this, the possibility of a global war was announced by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.

The geopolitical world situation is going down and we will witness a big, big, big world conflict

- the Serbian leader emphasized during a conversation with media representatives on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

      You are talking about the statement of the Americans. I agree. Now everything is developing according to their plan. Russia is preparing to get even deeper into the war in Ukraine, which is probably necessary for the States to foment a war with NATO with its help. The United States pursues several strategic goals at once. The destruction of Russia is one of them. The enslavement and subjugation of the industry of Europe is the second. There are others.
      However, Russia, theoretically, has a way out. Theoretically - because its power from the very beginning acts in accordance with the plans of the Americans (if not under their control). Using the threat of mutual destruction, Russia can put irresistible pressure on the States and force them to retreat. In her current position, on the verge of death, this is quite possible. States will not go to nuclear war. This is their only weak point, the "Achilles heel" of their plans. They will try to make this path as difficult as possible for Russia. Just in case

      It depends how things go! For example, the United States is seeking the dismemberment of Russia. An independent Trans-Ural Republic is being formed, which suddenly launches nuclear strikes against the United States with Sarmat missiles. Russia has absolutely nothing to do with it.
      - That's what they decided there! - they will say in Moscow and point to the Trans-Ural Republic. And half of the US is gone. And let only the United States try to strike back at Russia. Then they will become aggressors and the second half of the United States will burn.
      This is what the dismemberment of Russia can lead to.

    The Anglo-Saxon elite have all the money in the world that they painstakingly robbed and appropriated from the entire people of the land over the centuries. Moreover, they boast that they built the entire current civilization. Their family history goes back centuries. And suddenly lose all this for the sake of a lousy stinking Slavic Ukraine? Yes Never.
    Pontorez they are still those, in words they are not afraid of a nuclear war. And in fact, they will fall asleep. Their most important propaganda weapon of our time is the appearance on the verge of self-hypnosis, their fear of the 3rd World War. The use of low-yield tactical nuclear weapons by Russia in Ukraine is especially closer to Poland with the intimidation of further use in Europe, there will be absolutely no military reaction. The collapse of the dollar will begin, and the arrival of ambassadors with gifts in Moscow.

      Since TNW cannot threaten their own territory, I think that they will answer us with the same hands of their vassals, but they will not be afraid. Probably this possibility is included in their plans. It's just that they will mark even more clearly for Russia the threshold of the "inadmissible" - the transition to threats of nuclear weapons on their own territory.

        It seems to me that the calculation was on the energy pressure of the West by Russia, which would have a strong effect in autumn and winter, and by the excitement of the people, which would soften the hearts of euro officials. But the Anglo-Saxons also think about it and do not want to bring it to this, forcing Russia by any means to share energy resources at bargain prices.
        Yes, tactical nuclear weapons do not threaten their territory, but the response on their part implies full-scale "active" actions. Otherwise it makes no sense. I think hypersound will always be in the air with TN warheads for Europe and Britain, if the calculations are correct, then 2-3 minutes and the "old woman" is dead. In my opinion, the Sarmatians were put on duty and this makes it possible to speak more confidently, because they also give 100% confidence that the Anglo-Saxon plague will never happen again. Well, about us, let's pray. The Lord is Merciful.
