NATO Chief Voices Fear Of War With Russia While US Greenlights Drone Strikes On Russian Territory, by Caitlin Johnstone

One of these days the idiots running the U.S. government are going to go too far. From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:

 

In what Antiwar’s Dave DeCamp describes as “a rare acknowledgment of the dangers of backing Ukraine,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg acknowledged a fear of something going “horribly wrong” and leading to a hot war between the nuclear-armed alliance and Russia.

In an article titled “‘I fear a full-blown war between the West and Russia’, Nato chief warns,” The Telegraph writes the following:
