Gen. Nikolai Makarov, chief of the General Staff of the Russian armed forces, cautioned over NATO's expansion eastward and warned that the risks of Russia being pulled into local conflicts have "risen sharply."

Makarov added, according to Russian news agencies, that "under certain conditions local and regional conflicts may develop into a full-scale war involving nuclear weapons."

He appears to be talking on pre-emptive terms in this article..

Any country would get on the offence if a coalition, known for invading/liberating countries, was slowly working there way toward their border.

Isn't Makarov the baddie from Modern Warfare?

Anyways, I agree, any country seeing the noose tightening would be worried. And considering Russia has always been a favorite enemy, it makes sense for them to issue warnings. As well they have ties with Iran and China, so any incidents with Iran would inevitably drawn them into the mix.

And this is exactly why FDR said to walk softly and carry a big stick.

A large-scale war because of armed conflicts in seemingly unrelated countries?

Sounds familiar...

It's possibly, Bud... Although, Russia's been known for playing both sides, primarily for cash.

Sure they armed Iran with Surface-to-Air missiles, centrifuges, man-power and other key elements to build a Nuclear Plant and enhance their militaristic ability.. I just can't see Russia risking their own citizens and military infrastructure over Iran. They come off as too selfish.

That the first thing I thought too...weird. Modern Warfare 3 commercial advertises as WW3 then flips the first W to an M to get MW3. Is this a sign that WW3 is about to go down with the Russians? Only time will tell.

I always found the whole Makarov/Modern Warfare reference interesting, even if they used it for fictional purposes it sure seems like they're trying to tell us something. They did something similar in "The Hunt For Red October" when they had a political figure with the last name "Putin" and he was reading a quote from the Bible about the Apocalypse, just sticks with you.

As far as the article, I can't say any of this is good news. Let's hope everything stays calm for now!

(Battlefield) Bad Company 2 & Battlefield 3 are against the Russians as well. Better games as well. ~SheopleNation
