British General: Russia is able to start World War III

52

The chief of the British defense headquarters, General Nick Carter, believes that Moscow could “accidentally” start the third world war. His words are quoted by The Telegraph.


According to a senior military official, there are more and more new threats in the world, and Russia is conducting a disinformation campaign regarding the US presidential election of 2020 and the African region.

Carter noted that the Russian authorities hardly want to start a war by traditional means, but "reckless behavior and disrespect for international law" can lead to this. “Similarly”, global conflict flared up in the 1914 year.

As an example of such activity, a recent raid of ten Russian submarines is mentioned, of which eight are nuclear-powered submarines that went on a campaign in October, passing Britain, Iceland and Greenland. According to the Norwegian secret services, this mission was designed to prove that Russia, if necessary, can strike at the east coast of the United States.

It is worth noting that many readers of the British media reacted to the article with a certain amount of skepticism, noting in the comments that it is not yet clear who exactly is capable of starting a full-fledged war. Others traditionally remembered Brexit and the desire to cover up the obvious difficulties on the way out of the EU with a “Russian” theme.

    Did "highlie like" sound in it?

    And the question of “Brexit” he as a subject of the English crown cares the least, it would be better if he accused us of this ... it would be somehow more patriotic.
    As an example of such activity, the recent raid of ten Russian submarines, of which eight are nuclear-powered, that went on a hike in October, passing Britain, Iceland and Greenland, is mentioned.
    Alas, that the “mighty” British fleet simply cannot repeat something like that ...?

            They understood that Russia should not be reaped indefinitely. Russia will respond to aggression. Do not rub off, and answer in full! Then the world war will begin, and therefore, do not touch, do not tease, do not pull Russia!

        Slowly but surely, the incandescence of the dehumanization of Russia and Russians is growing. Signs of the moment when they begin to kill us in the name of peace are getting closer.
        I think at this pace there are about 5 years left, no more.

        So with the war, why Russia war and even a world war ...
        In the latter, they broke the European war machine.
        War is needed in the Western financial system and economy. Correct once again shaky health and nourish someone else's .. blood ..

      hi maybe it didn’t sound, but the whole speech could be packed in one phrase - highly likely Russia is: ... further down the list.
      They would remove their mongrel from the borders of the Russian Federation and sleep peacefully. I think we will hear similar speeches repeatedly and each time sharpened for a specific order ..

      The UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 1970, imposing sanctions against Gaddafi and his associates. Later, on the night of March 18, 2011, the Security Council adopted resolution 1973 (2011), which established a no-fly zone over Libya and permitted the use of any means to protect civilians, with the exception of “the possibility of foreign occupying forces in any form on any part of Libyan territory ". After that, objects controlled by Gaddafi's forces were subjected to air strikes.

    A strike along the east coast has nothing to do with it; the main task of these submarines is to intercept American convoys and strike groups.

    Here who can start 3 MVs and not by chance, is the Anglo-Saxons historically hating Russia and Russians, in whom Russophobia is a sign of good form and a sign of intelligence.

    If the chief of state defense headquarters is likened to balabol
    "experts" in the media, then why wait for a relaxation of tension in the confrontation.
    A military of this level should not pump up horror stories with politics, but rather, call for agreements. Only the military knows the realities of the parties.

    Russia can indeed polish the snout of the overbearing Anglo-Saxons.
    However, only on the basis of their own aggression.
    But no one will start a world war because of a damp island.

    I think this should be read in the context of recent articles on the capture of Kaliningrad's NATO. They’ll capture the type, and the Russians, without thinking that they can “accidentally” start the 3rd world, will answer.

    Britain "leaves" the EU with great creak. And it is Britain that can start the third world war, so as not to pay a lot of money for the exit and recreate the former empire. Russia, on the other hand, stands guard over Britain’s efforts to become the "mistress of the seas" again. And as usual, the thief screams louder than all, "hold the thief."

    The list of states capable of even "accidentally" starting the third world is quite extensive.
    You can even say that it is already underway, only with local conflicts and you can’t ignore it, even as a British general.
    I think that such interviews are a continuation of the same topic, when Russia is trying to stick to all armed conflicts in any way, with scotch and snot, based on the guidelines released from Washington.
    But you should not relax, in any case.
    Of course, in recent years Russia has substantially strengthened militarily in introducing new weapons and modernizing existing ones, but it is not worth it to participate in the global armed conflict.
    So far, the state, taking care of strengthening its beloved in terms of taking money from people by any means and pursuing a stupid regional policy, completely ignores the interests of the country's population, and this, in case of war, guarantees the repetition of 1941.
    I hope this is somewhere out there, inside the polar bear should be understood.

    "reckless behavior and disrespect for international law." And who set the rules? The chief of the British defense headquarters, General Nick Carter, probably forgot that the times of Queen Victoria and the empire over which the sun does not “set” have long sunk into the summer and are covered with mold.
