War with Russia and China can be nuclear armageddon
War with Russia and China – One of the top generals United States of America (USA) warns that war with Russia and China will destroy the world and the global economy. He called for finding ways to make peace with Eastern rivals and prevent nuclear armageddon.
Speaking at a meeting organized by the group think-tank The Brookings Institution in Washington on Monday (09/13/2021), Deputy Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff General John E. Hyten warned of the risks if the conflict spiraled out of control.
He expressed hope that cool heads could win. “We never fought the Soviet Union,” he said. “As for the great powers, our goal is never to go to war with China and Russia,” he said.
“Such an event will destroy the world and the global economy. It will have a bad impact on everyone, and we have to make sure that we don’t go down that path,” he said.
The general continued that previous agreements between Moscow and NATO after the fall of the Soviet Union concluded that Russia was no longer a threat. At the same time, however, he alleged that Russia was modernizing its entire nuclear arsenal. “This, because I think they are worried about the US,” he said, as reported by Russia Today, Tuesday (14/9/2021).
General Hyten argued that progress had been made in providing better relations between the US and Russia. But it is still far from total stability.
Instead, he said, Washington is increasingly concerned about the lack of a similar move with China, a country he suspects is pursuing an unprecedented modernization of nuclear weapons. “You see hundreds of silos,” he said, referring to reports that Beijing is building hundreds of silos for intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that can carry nuclear warheads.
