Comment: Grave outcome

(See in situ)


Grave outcome

That is a grave outcome that is plausible. Russia is at a disadvantage. The US has multiple proxies and Russia has few. I do think they will show they can down missiles and be a disruptor. That is as direct as you can get without hitting a US/Nato/IDF asset directly.

But... Russia can stir up its proxies for sure. Watch Hezbollah - they are acting as shock troops for Assad in Syria and they seem to be well-trained, disciplined and motivated. Hezbollah can also keep the IDF occupied in southern Lebanon. If Turkey over-steps then you can bet the Kurds and PKK will be stirred up. If Nato hits an RFS vessel then Russia can turn off the gas tap to the EU.
