A former NATO chief has claimed that the outbreak of a nuclear war with Russia is ‘entirely plausible’ and this within a year.
The General has written a book, 2017 War With Russia: An urgent warning from senior military command, outlining a nuclear war breakout with Russia over the Baltic nations.
According to Shireff, Russia would seize territory in eastern Ukraine to create a land route to Crimea and invade three Baltic nations, all NATO members.
With NATO recently deploying 4,000 troops to Russia’s border and the United States activating its missile defense system in Europe and subsequently activating war games in Romania, an outbreak of nuclear war with Russia becomes ever more likely.
“Be under no illusion whatsoever – Russian use of nuclear weapons is hardwired into Moscow’s military strategy.” writes Shirreff in his new book.
