The world is preparing for war as Russia and some parts of Europe go against each other. While some like to downplay the situation, experts are convinced that unless a resolution has been reached, the new breed of tensions between Russia, NATO, and its European allies could explode into a dangerous conflict.
Talks of War Among the People
People in Russia are beginning to think that the country will plunge into war soon. The bigger question now is whether Russia’s deployment of troops and tanks near NATO member nations will result to a new kind of war. Or will it engage in a kind of hybrid war used in Ukraine?
According to a report from Newsweek, the situation with NATO and the U.S., including the premise that Russia is a threat, is contributing to the thought that a world war is brewing.
“On to Moscow, where “war fever” is at fever pitch. Here, there is no softening of language; NATO and the U.S. are the enemy and Russia must be ready for attack,” wrote Jill Dougherty. The report noted that the situation could be trickier since the media is trying to sensationalize things, fanning the flames in the process.
Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev previously said that NATO’s rhetoric during the Warsaw summit “simply howls about the effort to almost announce war against Russia.” Gorbachev also told Interfax that NATO has been talking about defense “but actually is preparing for offensive action.”
NATO Changed the World?
Another report from UPI emphasizes the magnitude of recent NATO summit in Warsaw. In fact, the report calls it “as one of the most important events of the post-Cold War era for the future of international Arctic security.”
Because of the collective decisions supposedly established during the summit, experts believe that it would be hard to maintain the cooperation or any relation that existed among between Russia and the Arctic NATO countries – Canada, United States, Denmark, Norway and Iceland.
