Russian tensions could escalate into all-out war, says Nato general

Prophecy Sign:  Rumors of War


When a NATO General warns of all out war with Russia, we consider that to be very much a 'rumor of war'.
Because the West has been reticent to make any real effort to stop Russia from scooping up the Ukraine, it shouldn't be surprising that Russia may have its eyes on other Eastern European nations, which are now NATO members.

When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Mark 13:7 NIV

Russian tensions could escalate into all-out war, says Nato general
Tensions with Russia could blow up into all-out conflict, posing “an existential threat to our whole being”, Britain’s top general in Nato has warned. Gen Sir Adrian Bradshaw, deputy commander of Nato forces in Europe, said there was a danger Vladimir Putin could try to use his armies to invade and seize Nato territory, after calculating the alliance would be too afraid of escalating violence to respond. His comments follow a clash between London and Moscow after the Defence Secretary, Michael Fallon, said there was a "real and present danger" Mr Putin could try to destabilise the Baltic states with a campaign of subversion and irregular warfare.

Putin says Russia's military strength unmatchable
Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday other countries should not have the illusion that they can attain military superiority over Russia, Interfax reported. "No one should have the illusion that they can gain military superiority over Russia, put any kind of pressure on it. We will always have an adequate answer for any such adventures," he was quoted as saying in an address dedicated to the Defenders' of the Fatherland Day holiday next week.

Russia 'danger' to Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia
There is a "real and present danger" of Russia trying to destabilise the Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, the UK defence secretary says. Michael Fallon said he was worried about "pressure" from Russian President Vladimir Putin on the ex-Soviet states, which are Nato members. Russia might use tactics there similar to those it used in Ukraine, he said. Shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander told the BBC he too had "very real concerns" about the situation.
