Senators Mull Report Putin is Considering a Nuclear Attack
Senators in both parties are deeply concerned about a report that Russian President Vladimir Putin is considering the use of a small, targeted nuclear bomb seeking to decisively end the war in Ukraine.
According to NBC News:
One key senator, Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said he believed such an attack could force NATO allies, including the United States, to invoke their collective defense under Article 5 of the alliance’s charter and retaliate against Russia — especially if nuclear fallout drifts over the Ukrainian border and kills or sickens civilians living in Poland or other NATO countries.
“As you detonate a nuclear weapon inside of Ukraine depending on what it is they detonate, even in a demonstration, that would spread radioactive material that would cross borders potentially,” said Rubio, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, who frequently tweets his analysis of the Russian invasion.
Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., a decorated Iraq War veteran who serves on the Armed Services Committee, agreed with Rubio: “If any of the fallout from that drifts over, I mean, that could be considered to be an attack” on NATO allies.
If Putin gets away with this (invasion of Ukraine) he will stop at nothing to dominate the world. He obviously is drunk on power. Watch out, China ! (And everybody else.)
If Putin attacked China it would be the stupidest act ever perpetrated by man.
