NATO’s Nuclear War Plan—Russia Reminds Germany of What Happened Last Time

Oct. 24, 2021 (EIRNS)—German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (AKK) threw in her full support for the new NATO nuclear war plan for conflict with Russia. The plan, released Oct. 21, according to Reuters, is a “confidential strategy” which “aims to prepare for any simultaneous attack in the Baltic and Black Sea regions that could include nuclear weapons, hacking of computer networks and assaults from space.” Called the “Concept for Deterrence and Defense in the Euro-Atlantic Area,” AKK told Deutschlandfunk on Oct. 21: “We have to make it very clear to Russia that in the end we ... are ready to use such means so that it has a deterrent effect beforehand and nobody gets the idea, for example over the Baltic or in the Black Sea ... to attack NATO partners. That is the core idea of NATO.” She continued, “this is being adapted to the current behavior of Russia—and we are seeing violations particularly of the air space over the Baltic states, but also increasing incursions over the Black Sea.”

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu responded to AKK yesterday: “Against the backdrop of calls for the military ‘containment’ of Russia, NATO is consistently pulling its forces toward our borders. The German defense minister must know well how this ended for Germany and Europe in the past.”

Sergey Naryshkin, the head of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service, followed up: “But does the current generation of some Western politicians remember the fate of their distant and quite close ancestors, who were trying to come into the Russian land with arms in their hands? Let us advise them to study history very well, which is real history without any embellishments and, even more so, without falsification.”
