U.S. urges force to respond to Russia's possible use of nuclear weapons

There is an ongoing discussion in the West about the response that would need to be given if Russia suddenly uses tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine. The former head of the State Department, ex-assistant to the President of the United States, 99-year-old Henry Kissinger, also expressed his opinion on this matter.

He noted that if this happens, then the United States will face a dilemma, which he warned about 60 years ago.

What should be the reaction to the use of nuclear weapons? At that time we had a significant advantage in the field of nuclear weapons, and measures that seemed appropriate then are obviously more difficult to use today.

- he specified.

Kissinger stressed that the US does not want Russia to win. Therefore, they must prevent the Russian Federation, especially if it uses tactical nuclear weapons.

We cannot allow nuclear weapons to become conventional (equivalent to conventional weapons - ed.). And I hope that an adequate response is developed carefully, because it is not only about instant consequences, but also about claims for the use of such force and its legitimization.

- he added.

Kissinger explained that Washington cannot allow Moscow, after the use of tactical nuclear weapons, to achieve the goals it needs. Therefore, the United States is striving to prevent the transformation of tactical nuclear weapons into a conventional weapon.

As for the essence of our reaction, I would respond with conventional weapons or other means with the maximum possible range. And tightened the terms. I would not offer Russia better conditions after the end of hostilities

He summed up.

    It is necessary to warn the United States and NATO about a retaliatory strike against NATO countries with nuclear weapons if Ukraine uses a nuclear weapon, a dirty bomb or its equivalent.

    To use nuclear weapons, in fact, on the territory of Greater Russia (and Ukraine is part of Russia) for a reason, the inability to defeat the "rebels", after that Putin will be equated with Saddam Hussein and will have the same account as Saddam.
    And for this, it is necessary to expel effective ministers and generals from the army. And appoint Russian patriots in their place.

      If only rebels - that's one thing. But the whole Mongol Horde stands behind the rebels. No wonder they are afraid of tactics. This is not only striking but also a psychological effect.

    The "red line" is too wide, so we still haven't received any replies. We need a couple of good blows, not slaps in the face to the west. They understand only strength, since they have no reason because of the CSW.

    The Kremlin will again wipe its broken sopatka with its sleeve, glancing guiltily at the world community. Sabotage on the part of the United States on pipelines A GOOD SHAME EXAMPLE about the lack of determination and political will to win. Although the GDP directly announced and blamed the perpetrators, but blah, blah, blah ... We need real mirror measures. This is even the last slop bum understands. What can I say. Otherwise, we will come to an end, and so, and so. Who is in the subject, he will understand.
