Vladimir Putin Readies Tactical Nuclear Weapons Against Turkey – Source
It appears tensions between Russia and Turkey are escalating to incremental levels as a source recently revealed that President Vladimir Putin has threatened Turkey with nuclear weapons. Turkey’s launched invasion in Syria with Saudi Arabia has sparked concerns and with Russia’s threat looming, will there be world war three?Advertisement
A source reportedly told award-winning Iran-Contra journalist Robert Parry that Putin has threatened to launch tactical nukes should Turkey remain at odds with Moscow’s interests. “A source close to Russian President Vladimir Putin told me that the Russians have warned Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Moscow is prepared to use tactical nuclear weapons if necessary to save their troops in the face of a Turkish-Saudi onslaught,” he added. “If Turkey (with hundreds of thousands of troops massed near the Syrian border) and Saudi Arabia (with its sophisticated air force) follow through on threats and intervene militarily to save their rebel clients, who include Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front, from a powerful Russian-backed Syrian government offensive, then Russia will have to decide what to do to protect its 20,000 or so military personnel inside Syria,” Barry wrote more.
Morning News USA is consistently reporting about the looming war between Russia and Turkey. This shaping war could drag along each of their powerful allies and could give birth in what could be World War 3. Turkey is a strong NATO and United States ally. Russia is NATO’s and US’ old time foe since the cold war era. On the other hand, Russia has on its a side an equally powerful ally – China.
While there are supposed cease-fire that was established over Syria and Russia was part of the deal, experts remain doubtful that Moscow could abide by it. According to a new report from Al Jazeera, Turkey is not confident about the cease-fire deal between the United States and Russia. Consequently, Ankara has also maintained that it will continue its attacks against Syrian Kurdish fighters. “I welcome this truce, but I am not very optimistic that it will be respected by all the parties,” expressed Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus.
