Russia Warns of a Nuclear Disaster if Syria is HitSubmitted by jetguy on Thu, 09/05/2013 - 07:04
From the article; "A military strike on Syria could lead to a nuclear catastrophe if a missile were to hit a reactor containing radioactive uranium, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman warned. The remark comes as the US continues to push for a military strike on Syria.......
Anybody else reading between the lines here? Seems that Russia might be hinting at something else entirely without really wanting to say it.
After all - Russia, China, Syria and Iran all put together couldn't hope to beat the US Military at this point BUT Russia is in full possession of a wild card - something strong enough that Russia could say "Hey! You attack Syria and (just like the US would say of an attack on Israel) you are attacking Russia."
And IF you attack Russia of course you can expect a nuclear response.
If said and meant it could work. And there would be no possibility of any meaningful retaliations since we all know, a nuclear strike is like setting off a hand grenade in a phone booth - nobody wins.
