Putin Threatens Turkey With Nukes

Award-winning Iran-Contra journalist Robert Parry has been told by a source close to Vladimir Putin that Russia has threatened Turkey with the use of tactical nuclear weapons if it launches a joint invasion of Syria with Saudi Arabia.

Writing for Consortium News, Parry warns that the risk of the United States and its allies escalating the conflict in Syria to rescue rebels who are now on the verge of defeat could spark “World War III”.

“If Turkey (with hundreds of thousands of troops massed near the Syrian border) and Saudi Arabia (with its sophisticated air force) follow through on threats and intervene militarily to save their rebel clients, who include Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front, from a powerful Russian-backed Syrian government offensive, then Russia will have to decide what to do to protect its 20,000 or so military personnel inside Syria,” writes Parry.

“A source close to Russian President Vladimir Putin told me that the Russians have warned Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Moscow is prepared to use tactical nuclear weapons if necessary to save their troops in the face of a Turkish-Saudi onslaught. Since Turkey is a member of NATO, any such conflict could quickly escalate into a full-scale nuclear confrontation.”

Parry’s background suggests the information should be treated seriously. He covered the Iran-Contra scandal for the Associated Press and Newsweek and was later given a George Polk award for his work on intelligence matters.

According to Parry, although President Obama has “sought to calm Erdogan down and made clear that the U.S. military would not join the invasion,” he has been “unwilling to flatly prohibit such an intervention”.

Moscow’s alleged threat to repel a Turkish invasion of Syria with nuclear weapons follows comments by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in which he warned of a new world war if the United States and its allies send ground troops into Syria.

Turkey and Saudi Arabia have both signaled they are considering a ground invasion of Syria in order to aid refugees and so-called “moderate rebels” fighting against the Assad regime.

Last week, Turkish officials called for a “safe zone” to be established within Syria to allow refugees to flee Russia’s advance, although the United States argued that such a corridor could not be set up without a no fly zone.

Saudi Arabia is currently conducting the biggest wargames the region has seen for a quarter of a century. Northern Thunder involves 150,000 troops from 20 countries and is viewed by some as a precursor to a possible invasion of Syria.

Earlier this month, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told CNN that President Bashar al-Assad will have to be removed “by force” if the political process fails.

Despite official denials that the kingdom possesses nuclear weapons, Saudi political analyst told RT’s Arabic network last week that the Saudis have indeed obtained the bomb and that tests will be conducted soon.

    Erdogan is a smart guy. He will find a way to turn the table around. He will get closer with russians. A simple apology and small amount of compensation will do the trick. Turks realised now the west and americans are not real friends. As the second biggest nato member he shall side with russians and chineese and close all nato bases in turkey.and use 700 K soldiers to invade west with russians and chineese

    Benjamin Satanyahu, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain initiated this fiasco of war crimes. Personally I do not want WW III started to fulfill the bogus religious bullish.. of the Israelis and so the oil companies can steal the Syrian oil.

    Abdallah, while I agree with you one one level I would add if your side treated all its people properly these war crimes would never have had a chance to sprout and grow. Take some responsibility for your sides actions too.

    Muhammad your sex addict prophet wiped out jews in khayba for no reason other than to steal their property.
    After p÷ssy grabber gave them Jerusalem 5 imams in the US made the following quote about jews

    It is narrated in the hadith that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The Hour will not begin until you fight the Jews, until a Jew will hide behind a rock or a tree, and the rock or tree will say: ‘O Muslim, O slave of Allah, here is a Jew behind me; come and kill him – except the gharqad (a kind of thorny tree).’

    That islam is worship of a murderer and rapist is no secret.

    The strange thing is, that the West is pussy enough to let it happen on its soil. Shame on the West for allowing a murder worship cult to be considered as religion and allowing it to spread in the West.

    Hello. Its been going on since they found oil. In 1900 Islam was majority, but it hardly dominated the middle east. The Ottomans for all the ineptitude and corruption reigned over a system where the Sultan/Caliph commanded the respect of a large portion of Islam and he was able to control the more extreme instincts of that religion. Enter Britain France Germany Russia and eventually the US, oil changed the game forever. The day Churchill ordered the Royal Navy to switch to oil burning engines the world changed forever and the Ottoman Empires days were numbered. 100 years after the end of WW1 look at the world we have. WW1 was the GREAT war. WW2 was its little brother, merely confirming the world order that began in 1918. Islam was created because the Jews would not accept Mohammad as their leader, he could not lead the Christians of Arabia cause they followed the Bishops (and they hated Rome/Byzantium), this idea is confirmed because the Muslims initially prayed towards Jerusalem like the Jews and Christians, but when he failed to win over his desired people he focused instead on the demographic that was open to him so he commanded his followers to pray towards the pagan shrine in Mecca who used to make pilgrimage between the 2 hills wash at the well and circle the kabba 7 times (for 7 planets) and sacrifice animals to their gods and eat a feast to honor them. Pagan festivals re purposed to suit new rulers is not new. The pagan gods of Europe became saints of Christianity their shrines became healing wells and sites of holy miracles, Islam repurposed pagan sites and systems and combined that with cults of pseudo Jewish communities that already lived in Arabia whom the Jews would have called gentiles with the promise that they would have a seat at his table but the Jews would forever reject them (this would have left them out of luck in Arabian trade etc). The army raised by Mohammad was mostly built from Yemeni tribes and they were able to take advantage of a Roman world that was in conflict with itself and Persia and totally exhausted after decades of war. Islam is a weak theology its not convincing which is why they make it part of their legal (sharia) code that you can be punished for even questioning aspects of religion, they lack freedom of thought or conscience, never mind freedom of speech. Mohammad seems to be the only prophet of God who ever told his people that he will kill them if they didn’t do what he said or that followers can kill each other for the same reason. Our modern society has confused tolerance with meekness, the meek may inherit the earth, but heaven is not on earth, it is with God.

    If Trump taught us anything it’s that the solution to guns is more guns. We need to arm the students, the janitors, the school nurse, the principal, the school mascot, the bus drivers, the lunch ladies, that creepy guy standing 1000 feet away from the school…
