Putin Will Go To War With NATO After Ukraine – Former CIA Director

Vladimir Putin, the Russian president’s threats to attack the Baltics and spark a new war in Europe must be taken seriously, according to a former CIA director and senior US Army general.

General David Petraeus, who served in the US military for nearly four decades, stated that the Russian ruler “won’t be satisfied to stop with Ukraine.”

Retired four-star US general Petraeus, who commanded Allied Forces in Iraq, has suggested Ukraine’s Western friends must do more to assist win the war against Putin.

Putin threatened his friends this week that if the West sends weaponry to Ukraine, he will send long-range missiles.

Petraeus told The Sun that Putin has made it “very clear” that he intends to start a new war in Europe.

The world “should listen” to Putin because he “tells us what he believes,” the former CIA director cautioned.

Petraeus said: “The Ukraine war could expand in the region if Putin succeeds in Ukraine.

“He wouldn’t be satisfied to stop with Ukraine. Moldova clearly would be next.

“After that, it might be Lithuania or one of the other Baltic states.

“He’s been very clear and I think it’s also clear in hindsight that we should listen to this individual. He tells us what he believes.”

To defeat Putin, the West must do “everything humanly possible” to assist Ukraine, Petraeus argued. He also stated that Ukraine must strive to make “greater strides in technology” in the fight against Russia’s massive army.

“Ukraine has to do more to enable itself and is finally doing that… it needs to crank it into a higher gear to generate more replacement soldiers and also additional units,” Petraeus said.

“Keep in mind that what they did in the Black Sea wasn’t by their ships or their sailor but by their drones.

“Its maritime drones, its aerial drones and its anti-ship missiles have enabled them to sink one-third of the Black Sea fleet ships.

“Russia has had some of its own. The glide bombs that they are now using are particularly pernicious and ineffective, unfortunately.”

“[Putin] has been very clear and I think it’s also clear in hindsight that we should listen to this individual. He tells us what he believes

“Russia is generating considerable additional forces, has a population far more than three times that of Ukraine, has ten times the economy and some other advantages.

“The reality is a difficult one and yet another reason why we should be doing all that we can to help Ukraine in every possible way.”

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
