The United States and NATO are looking into tapping nuclear against the fight with Russia. According to reports, the two parties are working on combining conventional and nuclear capabilities to deter Russia. Will Russia lose this next World War?
US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter said in his speech at the Minot Air Force Base in the state of North Dakota that the United States and NATO are thinking of combining nuclear capabilities in light of the rising Russian aggression.
NATO Ready Go Nuclear on Russia
“We are refreshing NATO’s nuclear playbook to better integrate conventional and nuclear deterrence to ensure we plan and train like we fight and to deter Russia from thinking it can benefit from nuclear use in a conflict with NATO,” Carter said in his announcement via Sputnik.
Nonetheless, Russian ambassador to the United Nations Vitaliy Churkin said last Friday, that the country is hoping that the next president of the United States would be more amenable to revising the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) which Mocow already ratified.
Likewise, another report from RT claims Carter also discussing NATO’s plans to refresh its nuclear playbook.
“Russia has long been a nuclear power, but Moscow’s recent saber-rattling and building of new nuclear weapons systems raises serious questions about its leaders’ commitment to strategic stability, their regard for long-established accords of using nuclear weapons and whether they respect the profound caution that Cold War era leaders showed in respect to brandishing their nuclear weapons,” the Pentagon chief claimed. The official added that the US along with its allies had not developed new nuclear weapons or delivery systems for the last two decades.
