WW3 Alert: NATO-Russia War to Go Down in Arctic, Pentagon Dead Set on Wiping Out Putin
Tensions between NATO and Russia are now more apparent than ever with some analysts saying that the next world war could go down in the Arctic. Russia’s has vested interest in the region with China but they may have to go against Pentagon as the organization is reportedly dead set on stopping Vladimir Putin.Advertisement
NATO, Russia and the United States are going against each other in a number of tensed political regions but some say that the Arctic could be the next battleground. Many expect great powers to compete over the region much like how nations are now scrambling over who gets the South China Sea.
NATO-Russia War to Go Down in Arctic
“The Arctic is a region where great power competition will play out in coming years. Russia has significant strategic and economic interests in the region, and for China the Arctic may prove to have important security and economic benefits bearing on East Asia and on energy and food security,” claims Mike Scrafton for National Interest.
“The US and its allies also have sovereignty, security and resource interests in the Arctic. And global warming is rapidly changing the playing field in the Arctic region,” he added. The report also noted that NATO and Russia are the main contenders for the region also especially considering that NATO members dominate the Arctic Council.
Pentagon Dead Set on Wiping Out Putin
However, the United States comes close to a second major opponent for Russia because of a variety of reasons. The US has once called Russia “the greatest threat” to its national security and there is something to gain from there.
“My view is that the Pentagon was dead set against it. They have their own bureaucratic self-interest in not having cooperation with Russia, which is extremely important to them; the reason being that they’re in a so-called new Cold War with Russia and they’re getting a lot of Congressional money based on that promise,” said Gareth Porter via RT.
“So they don’t want to have that promise challenged by this idea of close cooperation militarily with Russia in Syria.”
