Top Russian, American and Polish Leaders Warn that Continued Fighting In Ukraine Could Lead to Nuclear War

The Stakes Are Too High Not to Negotiate Peace

Former Soviet leader and Nobel prize winner Mikhail Gorbachev warned today that the battle in Ukraine could result in a nuclear war:

“A war of this kind would unavoidably lead to a nuclear war,” the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize winner told Der Spiegel news magazine, according to excerpts released on Friday.

“We won’t survive the coming years if someone loses their nerve in this overheated situation,” added Gorbachev, 83. “This is not something I’m saying thoughtlessly. I am extremely concerned.”

One of America’s top experts on Russia – Steven Cohen – has warned that failure to negotiate a peace treaty in Ukraine could lead to nuclear war.

Steven Starr – a nuclear arms expert and senior scientist for Physicians for Social Responsibility – warns that proposed U.S. legislation would be a direct path towards nuclear war with Russia.

Former Polish president – and famed anti-communist activist – Lech Walesa also warned that the U.S. and Nato’s arming of Ukraine could lead to a nuclear war.

Leading American political activist Noam Chomsky agrees.

Australian doctor and Nobel prize winner Helen Caldicott warns:

The expansion of NATO to Russia’s borders is “very, very dangerous,” Caldicott said. “There is no way a war between the United States and Russia could start and not go nuclear. … The United States and Russia have enormous stockpiles of these weapons. Together they have 94 percent of all the 16,300 nuclear weapons in the world.”

“We are in a very fallible, very dangerous situation operated by mere mortals,” she warned. “The nuclear weapons, are sitting there, thousands of them. They are ready to be used.”


Caldicott strongly criticized Obama administration policymakers for their actions in forward positioning U.S. and NATO military units in countries of Eastern Europe in response to Russian support of breakaway separatists in the provinces of eastern Ukraine. On –, the U.S. government announced the deployment of the Ironhorse Brigade, an elite armored cavalry unit of the U.S. Army to the former Soviet republics of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, along the historic invasion route from the West to St. Petersburg.

“Do they really want a nuclear war with Russia?” she asked “The only war that you can have with Russia is a nuclear war. … You don’t provoke paranoid countries armed with nuclear weapons.”

And see this, this, this, this, this and this.

Indeed, Eric Zuesse says that the risks are so high – and the American leaders so reckless – that Russia is preparing for an expected nuclear attack by the U.S.

Postscript:   In the 1987 book To Win a Nuclear War: The Pentagon’s Secret War Plans, one of the world’s leading physicists – Michio Kaku – revealed declassified plans for the U.S. to launch a first-strike nuclear war against Russia.  The forward was written by the former Attorney General of the United States, Ramsey Clarke.

In Towards a World War III Scenario, Michel Chossudovsky documents that the U.S. is so enamored with nuclear weapons that it has authorized low-level field commanders to use them in the heat of battle in their sole discretion … without any approval from civilian leaders.

May cooler heads prevail …

    Obama will just have Hollywood make a movie of the USA winning a nuclear war with Russia while he plays golf with his pals from ESPN. Obama will borrow more money, Congress will buy more bombs. Wall Street will party like 1999.

    I’d be nervous too considering how bellicose, reckless, myopic, hubristic, and just plain psychopathic the neocons in charge are.

    Gorbachev fails the realize that BOTH major crime families in Washington are controlled by religious extremists…. So sweet reason fails to make an appearace anywhere in Washington. The Republicans will launch a nuclear attack on Russia for any reason or no reason…. The Democrats will do it after they test and see how many Russians they can get away with killing using proxys and contras….
    The more “successful” the Democrats are at the current game Obama is engaged in Ukraine, the GREATER the likelyhood of his scheme to produce the nuclear outcome….
    In other words, what the lying sack US media is pushing as a mild conventional attack on Russia is actually MORE provocative than an all out NATO mobilization rather than the seemingly piecemeal Obama approach.

    The violation of the “memorandum” in which Ukraine agreed to be nuclear free by all countries involved, is the greatest threat of nuclear war in history. Because, mid century there will be dozens of countries with the financial and technical capability to acquire nuclear weapons in a short time period. Those countries leaders will consider the value of any paper agreement to not acquire; basically, paper and blankets for nuclear weapons. The threat of nuclear war will increase as dozens of countries acquire. The moral cowardice of Obama and Cameron in not supporting the territorial integrity of Ukraine is the greatest threat to human kind, not today’s Russia/US non conflict. All the talk of this US Russia confrontation is just more propaganda to violate the territorial integrity of Ukraine and give blankets for nuclear weapons. A not so convincing excuse for moral cowardice.

      Obama and Cameron violated Ukraine territory when they staged a coup and overthrew the government in Kiev…. Russia is trying to re-establish Ukraine. Russia and Ukraine are comrades. Not UK or US.
      Obama and Cameron failed more recently in a similar coup attempt on Hong Kong.

        Next you will write that Russia protected the territorial integrity of Ukraine by annexing Crimea. Then you will write that Russian soldiers are taking there rightful place in Ukraine to protect the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Then you will write that the thousands dead there are to protect the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Then you will write that Putin is interested in saving the territorial integrity of Ukraine from Europe. But only brainwashed individuals will take you seriously.

          The civil war was a direct result of the neocon coup. There was no civil war when ties were good with Russia, and Russia had been pouring billions of dollars into Ukraine for the last 50 years. It’s you who are pushing the false narrative of the neocons and the Anglosionist empire.

    Russia whose ancient infrastructure was established by the Vikings. the roman numeral six – kings (VIkings). the tribe of dan who renamed the Danube, settled DENmark (literally meaning the mark of dan) and Swe DEN and Norway. Who boleshevik revolution put Zionist jews in charge minus stalin the face man who wanted to run from Moscow when the khazar jew led Nazi goy were knocking on the door.

    America, whose 13 red and white stripe flag was established by the Viking sails. The Vikings = the tribe of dan. Whose king Kanute conquered and became king of England, Norway, swe DEN, and DENmark. England which has the stone of a “Hebrew patriarch” (otherwise known as a pharaoh in ancient Egypt where not a shred of archeological evidence exists showing habiru jews lived as slaves) under the English crown chair.

    What weve got here is the Zionist rent-a-whores in Russia and the Zionist rent-a-whores in America “acting” warlike for the Zionists in England who are tossing scraps of meat into the dog fight for the stupid goy to get excited over.

    So get excited goy. Okay. Do what dumb animals do and pretend the people overseas, who never did anything to you, who you don’t know, are your enemy. Okay?
