Washington’s belligerent policies against countries like Russia and China will eventually start World War III, says American investigative journalist Wayne Madsen.
He said measures taken by NATO Commander General Philip Breedlove and his friends in Washington as they are approaching Russian waters in the Black sea and also provocations against China in the South China Sea could lead to a major conflict.
“I believe these people want to bring about World War III,” the Washington-based author told Press TV on Sunday. He added that NATO commanders and their friends in Washington need to undergo psychiatric care because of their policies.
Madsen said they should all “undergo psychiatric treatment immediately before they manage to get this country into a war.”
Madsen made the remarks when he was asked about a close encounter between Russian and American military forces, where Moscow deployed fighters to ward off a US destroyer heading towards its territorial waters in the Black Sea. The US Navy destroyer USS Ross was reportedly heading in the direction of Russian waters on Saturday. The Russian Navy jets forced the USS Ross to go into neutral waters in the Black Sea.
“It is not a surprise that Russia would be protective of its territorial waters,” said Madsen, adding ”after all, if Russian ships entered the Gulf of Mexico and closely approached Louisiana and Florida coasts, the US would respond with aircraft and probably ships.”
He then slammed Pentagon officials for their recent policies towards Russia, addressing them as a “dangerous provocation on the part of the Pentagon.”
