Retired US Army general David Petraeus told France’s L’Express weekly on Saturday that the US and its allies may join the conflict in Kiev, Ukraine against Moscow even if there is no threat to NATO member states. That in such a scenario, Washington DC might form a new coalition of the willing and use it instead of NATO, said Petraeus.
He believes that Russia may take some actions in Ukraine that would be “so shocking and so horrific” and this would cause a prompt response from the United States and their allies, where they “might react in one way or another, but as a multinational force led by the US and not as a NATO force.”
(BattleForWorld.com: So, the United States is trying to get around the NATO angle. If this was to happen as Petraeus outlines, it would cause a chain-rection by a force that is very destructive and of goliath proportions to become active, ready to strike!!! Since October 19, Russia has been amassing counter-measures in a time-shift way that is not apart of the onlookers’ reality. Anomalies unleashed using new physics will be uncaring.)
As if some type of provocation is being planned to give the US a plausible reason where the NATO military alliance would still be likely bound by its treaty, to join only if some form of conflict-incitement invokes Article 5, that is, if one of its members was attacked, the general believes. (A false-flag attack by the United States on a NATO member that would be blamed on Russia and over sensationalized in western media. An incident like the staged Gulf of Tonkin? Article reference, here.) Petraeus believes that Moscow is not interested in escalating the conflict and turning it into a global war. (Is the false-flag escalation an off-ramp for Russia to back down under the threat/pressure of a NATO full attack?) And Petraeus said, that a wider conflict is “the last thing” Russian President Vladimir Putin needs right now.
In the early part of October, Petraeus had asserted that the US could wipe out all Russian forces in Ukraine, to include the Russian Black Sea fleet, if Moscow uses nuclear arms in Ukraine. On Saturday, he reiterated that comment saying that Washington DC response to such a move from Russia would involve “more than diplomatic … economic and legal actions.” And described it as “just one” of “many options” America has in store just in case Russia resorts to the use of nuclear arms, which he called an “extremely bad decision.”
(BattleForWorld: His comment is rather interesting, as if to say, use anything other than nuclear weapons. As if he’s condoning the use of some form of weapon that is not nuclear.)
Petraeus still thinks that there’s nothing Russia can do to change the situation on the frontlines, which, according to him, is unfavorable to Moscow.
(BattleForWorld: He could be hinting at dragging out, extending the war in Ukraine.)
