An American writer and retired professor says the administration of US President Donald Trump has raised “the possibility of a nuclear war which would destroy the civilization.”
James Petras, who has written dozens of books on international issues, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Saturday while commenting on a statement by a top US commander who has warned of an imminent war with Russia.
General Robert Neller, the commander of the US Marine Corps stationed in Norway, on Thursday called on his troops to be ready for redeployment for a potential war with Russia and the Pacific region.
“I hope I’m wrong, but there’s a war coming,” Neller told the US forces during a visit to the Nordic country. “You’re in a fight here, an informational fight, a political fight, by your presence.”
The commander referred to Russia and the Pacific as the next major areas of conflict, predicting a “big-a** fight” in the future.
