BORIS' ROW WITH RUSSIARussian Foreign Minister slammed the West for 'imposing democracy' on Moscow
 

In one article headlined ‘The stakes are higher than Syria’, the paper Moskovsky Komsomolets warns of a potential new war.

It states: “Just imagine that the US does what it has wanted to do for a long time and strike against Assad, not by mistake but on purpose and openly.

“Should Russia defend its ally or consider striking against the Americans but this would definitely lead to a Third World War.

“Russia can win big in Syria but it can also lose big too. We must not forget that in Syria we are playing an astonishingly risky game.”

Moskovsky Komsomolets adds that even its country's own fighters would not be confident in a war with the US.

"According to our fighter pilots, the best we could do is shoot down a few coalition forces but this would mean a full-scale war," it added.

"The continued expansion of Nato is seen by the Russian leadership, perhaps incorrectly, is seen as being a real threat.

"There is a danger of real confrontation, perhaps leading to some kind of military engagement and war."

It has previously been reported that Putin is preparing for war with the West.

Russia is already staging a massive evacuation drill to prepare for nuclear war.

More than 200,000 emergency services personnel and soldiers will use 50,000 pieces of equipment during the civil defence exercise.

I think things are heading in that general direction (armed conflict), Putin is a war criminal, he is also looking for approval from the masses because his economy is fecked........ worrying times but I believe the U.S. are smart enough to prevent any escalation of current problems................. god help us all if they are not.

there will be a very fine line between non-escalation and capitulation

 

 They / he will be pushing very  hard over the next few months

The article was too long to post the whole thing, but this is an interesting development. 
 

Vladimir Putin Exits Nuclear Security Pact, Citing ‘Hostile Actions’ by U.S.
 

MOSCOW — Saying relations with the United States have deteriorated in a “radically changed environment,” President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia withdrew Monday from a landmark nuclear security agreement, in a troubling sign that the countries’ cooperation in a range of nuclear areas could be threatened.
 
The treaty, on the disposal of plutonium, the material used in some nuclear weapons, was concluded in 2000 as one of the framework disarmament deals of the early post-Cold War period.
 
It required Russia and the United States to destroy military stockpiles of plutonium, a deal that represented another encouraging step away from nuclear doomsday and an insurance policy against the materials falling into the hands of terrorists or rogue states.

I think the threat is real because:

 

1.  The Russian economy is in the tank due to low oil prices.  He needs something big to turn attention away from that and re-energize his economy.

2.  Bombing aid convoys and civilian areas, even in war is a war crime and Russia has done both.  World public opinion is fickle and subject to change, but could certainly turn against the Russians quickly.  However, if a larger war opens up then to the winner go the spoils and the winner writes the history.  That is a lot of motivation for the Russians.

3.  Russia has long wanted the world to see it as a superpower.  What better way than to beat up on the USA?

4.  Putin wants Eastern Europe back.  They have already started taking the Ukraine and the more they do without serious challenges, the more likely they are going to be willing to escalate.  Just as Hitler did in WWII, Putin is doing today.

5.  Putin is a very egotistical leader who thrives on seeing himself in the headlines.  His current actions seem to indicate he believes a nuclear was would be survivable.

6.  We currently have the weakest, most incompetent President in our countries history.  The odds are very good the man following him will rebuild the military and act like a real leader, as opposed to what we have now.  The election is rapidly approaching, so perhaps Putin sees this as a golden opportunity to strike when our nation is at a low point, the military has been decimated and the current leadership is unlikely to offer up a strong response.

Not really.  Obama is, by far, weaker than Jimmy Carter.  Mitt Romney warned of Russia in a presidential debate, and Obama laughed him off, saying, "Really?  The Cold War has been over for 20 years."  Naivete in leadership, like lemmings to the sea.
