Well-known political commentator Tom Rogan in his newspaper column at the Washington Examiner said that the US President Donald trump, Prime Minister Theresa may and the President of France Emmanuel macron should make a joint statement about a possible nuclear strike in response to stop the head of the Kremlin reports ONLINE.UA.
“Such a statement trump necessary for two reasons. First, Russia develops and deploys a nuclear weapon of low power, which she can use in the conflict with the armed forces of NATO. The Russians hope that these weapons will enable them to achieve tactical effect – that is, to destroy the forces of NATO, calling the Alliance nuclear retaliation,” writes Rohan.
According to observers, the lack of a clear position – a dangerous gap in NATO’s security.
“And the President of Russia Vladimir Putin has already shown himself a master in using strategic loopholes. For example, note the violation by the Russian President, the Treaty on nuclear forces medium range. Therefore, the U.S. must become initiators in filling out this safe space, because NATO is likely to do not configured,” – said the expert.
At the same time, says Rogan, “is a simple way to counter the Russian threat”.
“The US President Donald trump, Prime Minister Theresa may and the President of France Emmanuel macron should make a joint statement saying that any nuclear attack on any NATO member forces or intermediaries of the Russian Federation will lead to the appropriate or even more serious nuclear retaliation. Given that NATO remains a strategic nuclear advantage over Russia, such a Declaration would put Putin into place,” explains the author.
