One expert said that the U.S. is likely to lose to both Russia and China if a nuclear battle ensues. Forbes contributor Anna Borshchevskaya points out that the problem between the West and Putin goes back a long time. The Russian president blames the West for all of his nation’s issues and seems to believe that dissent in Russia and other nations can only occur with outside help.
He blamed the west for the Orange Revolution, which happened in Ukraine in 2004 and came about as a result of government corruption. Putin reportedly thinks that the revolution and similar unrest began because of interference by the U.S. Since then, he has been seeking to keep other uprisings from happening.
While many assume that a third world war would result in total annihilation, a retired American university professor said that the U.S. will lose such a war.
The Inquisitor reported that James Henry Fetzer made the remarks on Press TV, an English-language Iranian TV network. Fetzer is a professor emeritus at the University of Minnesota and a member of the editorial board of Veterans Today.
Accusing the U.S.
He frequently appears on the Iranian program, although in the U.S., most consider him to be a conspiracy theorist. He’s known for saying that the U.S. government staged the 9/11 attacks and that the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School was the result of a collaboration between the U.S. government and Israeli death squads.
Fetzer is now accusing the U.S. of “attempting to encircle Russia with a series of anti-missile batteries ostensibly directed toward Iran because of its nuclear weapons program when Americans and Russians and most of the world know that Iran has no nuclear weapons program.” He also claims that the U.S. airstrikes in Syria are not aimed at ISIS but instead are meant to destroy the country’s infrastructure.
The professor also said that because of U.S. intervention in Syria, it has given nuclear superpowers Russia and China the right to flex their military muscles. He suggested that Washington “back down” or possibly risk sparking World War 3.
"I'am sure Russia or China or any other Eastern Nation will not start any war. The WAR is favorite past time of the "WEST" . This time around if Russia and others can simply make every corner of the world simply inaccessible, it will simply cause the WEST to loose, West as we know it cannot survive without instability and exploitation.
There was no business for NATO to go and bomb Serbia, on pretext that Kosovo wants to be independent, They did it. Now Eastern Ukraine wants to join Russia, let it do it, simple as that. There is no justification for interfering in the internal affairs of other people. Did any east Ukrainian went to U.S or attacked its NATO allies? NATO may want to rule whole of Ukraine. But thanks to Russia, Crimea and Eastern Ukraine is for now saved from savage forced slavery of the WEST (which they themselves does not want). Of course, Russia has to intervene as they cannot leave their own ethnic cultural community to be enslaved by the "WEST".
After putting nukes around the Russian border, what right does NATO have to make noises about Russia placing it's nukes on alert anyway? Also we know how the mighty Nazis lost a winning war, after attacking Soviet Union. NATO and Nazis have the same mentality (ie global domination). They can't tolerate anyone in this world living in peace. Let us all pray to God almighty that NATO gets the punishment it deserves for interfering with the lives of innocent peoples of the world. If that happens we can at least be sure of the God's divine presence. That is how every person who has humanity in them should think." -Anand
"Destruction would be absolute, the planet and every living thing on it would be destroyed. If ww3 is to break out then I am sorry, but the US will lose not because of military power or allies, but because of the fact that if America is not invaded then most troops in the US military will not want to fight the war let alone the people of the US will not want to fight the war so the US military won't have the support of their own people which is very important in a war. Also the US doesn't have the man power to support such a war with a nation like China which could muster up millions of troops with a lot to spare if needed. Also if you think about it Russia has war technology almost as powerful as the US has so if Russia was to supply the massive amounts of Chinese soldiers with Russian war tech then the US would not be able to hold any front in Asia without serious consequences. Also another thing to take into account is the terrorists in the US that won't hesitate to take action during the war, which would cause the US a lot of trouble to handle while fighting a war. I am a US citizen, but many Americans underestimate the power of Russia and China put together. Now if the US would be fighting them 1v1 then it could be different . Also the European nations don't have the power they used to have in the 1900's due to peace in Europe thus Russia would be able to hold the European front with ease while concentrating its troops on the US in Alaska or even across the arctic ocean to hit Canada. My point is that America is too ignorant when it comes to the power of Russia and China as well as to the willingness of Americans to fight a war that they see as useless and wasteful. Think of Vietnam as a example to what I am saying" - Justin.
"What? In a nuclear war Russia wins? What kind of crap is that?!! All life would end on both continents. How much better is dead than deader? Even if the both leaders have a Super Bunker both nations would be absolutely destroyed. Radiation from the war would circle the globe sterilizing the entire planet, and eventually the radiation from their own countries bombs would poison their own native country so its suicide for the whole world."- Torreth.
"Russia, USA, and China and everyone else - we are the same. War is useless. War is petty. What are you fighting over? It is better to kill or is it better to save? Guess what - if humanity (THAT IS EVERYONE) would join together, we could have PLEASURE and HAPPINESS for everyone! And there is ENOUGH room here on Earth and in our nearby planets for us all to expand and live together. If we need competition, lets compete on better designs for clean Earth, sensible policies for education/governance/and NOT inflicting pain to animals/such. Focus on BUILDING better technology to HELP not HURT. No one wins in a war, no one, and no victor's empire lasts forever either in a war-state. Look beyond yourself - look beyond your current generation - be smart and help the future humanity MAKE IT TOGETHER!"- ShokerT.
"I like your way of thinking. Earth is our sanctuary! If we tear it up and destroy it nothing more can be said about planning for the planet's future." - Thomas Griffin.
"Excellent statement my friend! I could not agree more, we ALL need to put insignificant differences aside. Just watch the hundreds of homeless clips in youtube and if you have half a soul one doesn't care what race or size they are. Yes, we have enough of everything for everyone so far...peace and Good Luck " - Henry shockerT
" Firstly, the WW2. If not for Russia in WW2 Hitler would have been on your continent. Do not forget that. And forget about Hollywood movies, see the occasional documentary on how the victims gave Russia in the fight against the Nazis.
Secondly. If New Zealand is saved from the Japanese, it does not mean that it has to get along with the crimes of the US Army in the Middle East." - d3nis.
