    Straight Wang. The United States and NATO have spread a network of military bases all over the planet, unleashed dozens of regional conflicts, threaten to use military force against the largest countries of China, Russia, Iran, further down the list, and this prodigy bears the crap that there is a risk of world war. This is how he threatens the world in the first place.

          Why else would they go to Ukraine?

          Obviously, they want to "shoot a remake" of the Crimean War in the middle of the IXX century.

              Then Russia lost.

              Then Russia was at war with Great Britain, France, Turkey.
              Was at war with Austria, which had joined the alliance, and Prussia, ready to enter the war.
              An ultimatum was presented to Russia, or it goes to negotiations and serious concessions, or Austria and Prussia will begin hostilities against Russia.
              Russia was forced to accept the ultimatum. Although the negotiations did not end as badly as the British and especially the Austrians wanted.
              So Russia did not lose on the battlefield (although on the battlefield there were no less failures than successes).

          It is possible that he mentioned many more. This article, for you, focused on Russia. If they wrote that he was worried about the New Old Man, you would not even pay attention.

    "... What do we know about this high-ranking NATO general? ..."
    ------------------------------------------
    Well, a combat soldier, he participated in many interventions and therefore knows how to start a war, so his "predictions" in the civilian language can be translated as follows - "War is a continuation of the economy, and as soon as the economy is in stagnation, it means need a 3rd World War. "

    There are no signs of degeneration typical of the current Anglo-Saxon establishment in its British part. It seems that the British began to think about the penetration into power of frankly genetically sick people. Which testifies - England is concentrating.

    The United States cannot maintain its position of hegemon without war. And the United States is Britain's chain dog. Therefore - the war. Unless, of course, a responsible decision is made (as in Malta). Then Venediktov will proclaim the slogans of the day: "no peace, no war, but dissolve the army", "take as much sovereignty as you want" ... Tu-160 will be cut again ... The mines will blow up. Well, the Moscow region will become the fiefdom of one of the younger Windsors, probably the one who in Canada gets used to the Russian winter. So the goals are clear, the tasks are set. Get to work!

    The fact that the crisis of American society is already blind can notice that it is no longer possible to hide the debts, but CORONAVIRUS was to blame.
