A former U.S. Marine intelligence officer who served in the Soviet Union implementing arms control agreements has stated that NATO is engaged in a “war of aggression using Ukraine against Russia,” and if it achieved its proximate goals in that region, it would likely “escalate to nuclear war and represent the end of all humanity as we currently know it.”
Therefore, “NATO is a suicide pill for the world,” Scott Ritter said. “The world needs to understand that. NATO doesn’t protect anybody.”
Beyond his earlier experience serving the Pentagon in Russia, Ritter is well known for his role as the Chief Inspector for the United Nations in Iraq, searching for that nation’s alleged “weapons of mass destruction” the supposed presence of which provided a pretense for the American invasion in 2003.
