In a disturbung twist to the World's recent turmoils, it seems that a new Axis of power is on the horizon as Russia starts to line up allies for a potential WW3 event. Things stem from the shooting down of a Russian fighter by Turkish forces when the Russain fighter jet entered Turkish airspace. Russia wants retaliation and there is talk of using a Nuclear weapon on Istanbul, Turkey thus killing 9 million people according to the article.
Putin urged to drop nuclear bomb on Turkey, killing 9 mil people
Putin is willing to use nuclear weapons on Russia’s “enemy number one,” Turkey, according to one of the nation’s leading politicians, as reported by the Daily Star.
Vladimir Zhirinovsky, leader of the misnamed Liberal Democratic party, urged Putin to destroy Turkish capital of Istanbul, killing over nine million people. Zhirinovsky said Turkey was stupid to shoot down a Russian fighter jet on Tuesday, when it violated Turkish airspace.
China, Russia and Pakistan: the world’s new superpower axis
Russia and Pakistan are already building plans in counter-terrorism cooperation, increasing port calls of military ships as well as helping stabilize Afghanistan, according to Bloomberg citing ITAR-TASS. During last week’s meeting between Shoigu and Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the two sides agreed on further steps to boost the $542 million of bilateral trade between the two nations.
Meanwhile, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently said the country is seeking to modernize its armed forces and become capable of producing its own military equipment, stripping itself off reliance on imports from the U.S. and Russia.
In August, ValueWalk reported that there were signs of the emergence on a new superpower axis in the world – a triangle between Russia, China and Pakistan. And it seems that there has been significant progress in forming this kind of superpower axis ever since.
China, Russia and Pakistan are perfect fit for one another for the reason that Moscow is capable of replacing all Western military technology for both Beijing and Islamabad. Besides, Russia has a reputation of being a reliable energy supplies for its allies.
China, meanwhile, is much more powerful in terms of its economy compared to both Russia and Pakistan. In addition to that, a great amount of foreign exchange reserves are looking to invest and require energy supplies.
Pakistan, for its part, has a developing economy and requires both military equipment and energy supplies from Russia and protection from China.
Things are heating up, ATS! Turkey has poked the Russian Bear with a stick-waking it from its hibernation and the Bear doesn't like that. What concerns me even more is N. Korea, they may want to join in the axis; they're nuclear also. I wonder is there a way to back out of this situation and calm things down before it gets too late....? Or is WW3 already inevitable at this point? What says ATS?
