Putin’s Firepower Enough to Destroy Europe
Newly retired Supreme Allied Commander of NATO General Philip Breedlove shared his thoughts of what could possibly happen should there be war between Russia and Europe.
According to the official, Russia could use fast-acting fleets of submarines, which could consequently overcome Europe easily. The official noted that Putin’s naval power can conquer the Atlantic including all other essential and sea lanes NATO needs for counter deployment. This will make it hard for the United States to send reinforcements and stop Kremlin’s troops from overtaking the region completely.
“The unobstructed crossing of the Atlantic to fight a war on the land mass in Europe, I think, is a thing of the past. We need to think about our ability to defend our capability to reinforce Europe,” said Breedlove via Breaking Defense.
The official said that the alliance has to find a way to boost intelligence operations so it can prevent a war before it even started.
“But, I think, in a time and space of their choosing, they can make things very tough for us, and we need to be able to ensure our ability to operate in those commons.”
Estonia Refuses Putin?
Despite odds favoring Russia should there be war, Estonia reportedly recently turned down an invitation from the Kremlin to discuss security matters.
Defense Ministry spokesman Andres Sang explained last September 22 that “military-political” meetings between NATO-member Estonia and Russia cannot happen, thanks to NATO’s decision in 2014 to freeze civilian and military cooperation with Moscow.
