The US and NATO are determined to “manage” Russian aggression which could also mean sending troops to match Moscow’s. According to latest World War news, U.S. is trying to crack down on Russia’s “killer” submarine despite efforts to talk peace in Syria. Is the United States playing fire with Russia?
U.S. Navy and NATO force are trying to keep tabs on one or two possible Russian nuclear powered submarines in the Mediterranean. According to reports, at least one of the two vessels is Project 949A Antey. NATO has also dubbed the guided missile submarine as Oscar II.
World War News: US Out To Destroy ‘Carrier-Killer’ Russian Nuclear Submarines?
“What makes the news even more interesting is the fact that the Russian Navy submarine would be an Oscar II Class, that is to say a ‘carrier killer’ sub, designed with the primary mission of countering aircraft carrier battlegroups.” David Cenciot, founder of The Aviationist blog, wrote
“Among the NATO vessels in proximity of the Oscar II there is also the French Charles De Gaulle nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and the USS Eisenhower is not too far away either,” National Interest quoted Cenciotti.
“Therefore a massive Cold War-style hide-and-seek in underway, keeping both sides quite busy.”
Peace Out The Table?
While Russia has been asking continuously to tone down the war rhetoric, the West has been adamant at trying to push its agenda. According to the alliance, Russia remains a threat to many nations. So is the case of Syria. The US has been a vocal critic of Russia’s actions in the region. Nonetheless, the two parties are also reportedly working on the peace process in the region. A Russian Foreign Ministry official, however, said that they are moving slow because Washington is pressing for its interest.
“There is some progress, but there are no agreements … we are still facing a case in which the United States is trying to use this channel to influence the situation on the ground for its own benefit.” RT quoted Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov.
