Over the past two weeks, the threat of a wider war in the Middle East has grown to a fever pitch. Saudi Arabia has publicly threatened to invade Syria to ensure that Saudi backed rebels will succeed in ousting Assad. This is despite the fact that Russia has a significant military presence in the country, and has been using its formidable air power to back Assad’s army. And top of all this, the Russians have accused Turkey of preparing to join Saudi Arabia’s proposed invasion.
However, if one esteemed journalist to be believed, then the Turks may want to reconsider their insane gambit. According to award-winning investigative journalist Robert Perry, who is famous for covering the Iran-Contra affair, the Russian’s have made it clear that they will do anything necessary to protect their forces in Syria.
“A source close to Russian President Vladimir Putin told me that the Russians have warned Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Moscow is prepared to use tactical nuclear weapons if necessary to save their troops in the face of a Turkish-Saudi onslaught. Since Turkey is a member of NATO, any such conflict could quickly escalate into a full-scale nuclear confrontation.”
Parry added that President Obama has tried to defuse the situation by telling Turkey that he won’t send the US military to support their invasion. At the same time however, he has refused to completely take that option off the table. If he really doesn’t want to be responsible for letting World War Three happen under his watch, then refusing to aid this loony invasion under any circumstances is imperative.
