Dem Rep Moulton Warns of Possible Nuclear War With Russia

Written by  Jeff Poor

Friday on CNN’s “New Day,” Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, doubled down on remarks he had made earlier in the week in Austin, TX at the South by Southwest music festival regarding the possibility of a U.S.

nuclear war with Russia.

Moulton argued Russia had violated the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty and criticized President Donald Trump for not acting more forcefully against Russia for the violation. That he said raised the possibility of nuclear war with Russia should Russia use nuclear weapons against U.S. allies in Europe.

“Russia has not only violated this treaty, they have also changed their doctrine,” Moulton said. “For a long time, Russia and the United States had this sort of mutual agreement, mutually assured destruction, that if they shot their weapons at us, we’d shoot our weapons at them and therefore a nuclear war was unlikely to happen. But what Russia now says is that they will quote, ‘escalate to deescalate.’ They are willing to use nuclear weapons to deescalate a conventional attack.”

“And I think that the problem here is that we don’t really have a plan to deal with that,” he continued. “If Russia starts using nukes against our allies in Europe, we may well use nukes in retaliation.

It amazes me that he would ignore the idiot in North Korea and the slime buckets in Iran before worrying about Russia. I just wish we had a deputy sec of state and all the rest of the cabinets so we could get things done. No , I don't believe Trump is a puppet of Putin and I do think Putin is smart enough not to go nuke with USA. And I think Pakistan would bomb Israel before us.
Voters need to call their Dem. representatives and tell them to let the President have his people NOW!

While the US may enter into a war that involves the use of nuclear weapons it will not be with Russia, China, France, India, Pakistan, England, the Japanese, or Israel. That pretty much only leaves 2 countries suspected of nuclear weapons that we could possibly have a problem with.
That's Iran and North Korea. And with the possibility of Pakistan thrown in the other nations of the world that have the capability also recognizes the cost.
Since after World War II the primary deterrent to nuclear war was mutually assured destruction. Meaning that any nation that wants to survive or at least have its people survive don't want to start a nuclear war.
North Korea is so stupid that they could care less if that fact clown can get an extra dumpling for dinner he gladly nuke somebody. North Korea just doesn't give a damn.
Iran is a nation consumed by idiots who consider dying for their leader a guaranteed way to heaven is almost a guarantee that when they get a functional nuclear weapon they're going to use it.
This idiot thinks were going to war with Russia he needs to have had his brain checked out to see if it's even functioning. Of course, that would mean if they found out he had a brain at all they wouldn't let him be a Democrat anymore.

Shut up Seth. We have professionals handling this. You need to concentrate on your job in Congress. Since you are a liberal from a liberal state you probably have no idea what that is...so here is a tip. Serve the People of America. That's right you were elected to be a servant. You were not elected to be stupid nor say stupid stuff that puts our national security at risk!

For someone without a face you're awfully quick to judge someone else's. I think we all know who the dope is here.

Duh! Think so? I was learning the stupid "duck & cover" long before you were a fun thought in your daddy's mind.

Can we possibly strap Moultin to the first nuke that we (don't) fire at Russia? I am about done with all of these idiots trying to fabricate their way into a conflict with Russia in order to rile the people with less-than-average intelligence into supporting their business-backed, special-interest-group-supporting, self-promoting agendas. Moulin is just another self-serving politician who wants to scare the American people into supporting him. No one is getting into a nuclear war with Russia/, Does no one remember MAD? Bit is probably one of the simplest, most intuitively understandable strategic ideas if we would turn the TV off and read a book once in awhile.

These people just can't seem to rid themselves of the sick obsession they have about blaming and accusing Russia for everything including their very own shortcomings.

And our Country has nothing to stop that one nuke from getting anywhere near our Country? Do you think so little of our Nation's security measures? I think that was probably one of the first things President Trump looked in to when he took office. He understood how the obumrat decimated our Military and our security. Think he probably took care of that right away.
