Amidst all of the other conflicts going on in the World right now, here's another to add to the mix: Russia is now threatening NUCLEAR consequences as a result of the sanctions imposed by the US and its allies in the UK. The reason the sanctions were imposed in the first place was because of the Ukraine conflict and Russia's role or supposed role in that matter.



As the former Soviet Union faces tough sanctions from the Obama Administration and European Union (EU) in the wake of Russia’s annexation of Crimea and incursion into Eastern Ukraine, Putin threatens the United States. The Russian president fired off more ominous rhetoric as his country’s Ruble and economy continue to suffer. Vladimir Putin warns that the continued “hostile” posturing from the West and its partners could have “nuclear consequences.”

What does Obama do now? Call Russia's bluff? What if they're not bluffing? If he gives in to Russia's demands then he's seen as weak but if he doesn't give in, he risks possible Nuclear War with Russia or the possibility of WW3. What says ATS?

You don't seem to understand the consequences of any use of nuclear weapons.

So Putin stomps his feet, cries then threatens humanity with nuclear conflagration because his conquest of Crimea and Eastern Ukraine went over like a fart in Church.


What a nice guy

At least Tom Clancy gives us a solid background for his stories by doing thorough research to present something believable. I did not see any quote from Putin indicating "Nuclear consequences".

From the article:



However, one of the most stunning parts of the chat — and focus of Western Journalism’s coverage — was Putin’s subtle warning of nuclear destabilization with the West and EU partners. The Russian head has been ratcheting up talk lately about his country’s nuclear arsenal and prowess in a show of force against the U.S. superpower.

I'm no Tom Clancy, of course.

Putin is a complete and utter IDIOT!

If he doesn't know that if he let just one nuke fly his whole country would be nothing more than nuclear wasteland, unfortunately so would the rest of the world.

The fact he has now said this means he should be arrested immediately and quietly.

Korg.

As most Russians live west of the Urals, and well within range of American, British, and French warheads, I think Putin is posturing for home consumption.

He should go down to the middle east, and make absolutely certain that US soldiers in Afghanistan and Syria, return home in a body bag.

That would be a "proper" responce. And make the "nuclear" part, something the US can decide upon. As unless US citizen see their soldiers pay the consequences, they'll never have a clue of any.

But, let's see what he does. I don't think he's got the balls for it and most importantly he doesn't have the Aircraft carriers for it, unless the Russians have put him "aside", more or less.

To the other poster... yes. Putin threatened a while ago..

Perhaps he did reinforced his ideological position.
Give Putin a black suit and he would be Kim Jon Un.
Only taller...and he can ride on this game...


ETA: I would caution about this INQUISITOR SITE...
I'm looking over the info on this site...
It's claiming to be legit..
But I think it was pointed out elsewhere that it is Satire..
A previous threat was made on RT news... and Putin and cronies run that news site..

Uh, draw another red line?

That's what he did before in a situation involving US foreign policy.

I'm not seeing a quote in there either, please do elaborate.

ETA: Here you go!



“We hope that our partners will realize the futility of attempts to blackmail Russia and will remember what consequences discord between major nuclear powers could bring for nuclear stability,”

Very subtle indeed.

Please do not undermine my knowledge of a nuclear winter, the fall out, the chaos to ensue after the dust has settled.

We need a purge of some kind. Nuclear doesn't seem to be on the top of my list, i don't think anyone is stupid enough to ruin the world...not, not unless that have extraterrestrial connections.

But a many of innocents including myself (if i don't survive) will need to be released from this existence.
A purge is coming, be it by a virus, nuclear, tectonics, weak magnetic field, CME, or.....heck, E.T.s'

I prepare myself for events that have an ability of me surviving. I am well aware of the consequences.

Regards,

The US has used, and are using ... nuclear abilities all the time. They just call'em "mini" nukes ... or "not quite"-depleted Uranium.

But Putin doesn't have the guts for it ... wait till the Russians have put him aside ... then you can start pissing in your pants.

I read that, but the quote they used didn't come across to me as a nuclear threat.

This is what was quoted.



The United States went so far as to declare the suspension of our cooperation in space exploration and nuclear energy. They also suspended the activity of the Russia-US Bilateral Presidential Commission established in 2009, which comprised 21 working groups dedicated, among other things, to combating terrorism and drug trafficking.

At the same time, this is not the first downturn in relations between our countries. We hope that our partners will realize the futility of attempts to blackmail Russia and remember what consequences discord between major nuclear powers could bring for strategic stability. For our part, we are ready to develop constructive cooperation based on the principles of equality and genuine respect for each others’ interests.


I read that and don't see anything regarding a nuclear threat.
