US Will Use Nuclear Weapons Against Russia, Polish Analysts Say
WARSAW, (BM) – The US will use nuclear weapons if it goes to war with Russia, according to some Polish analysts, whose opinion was published in the Polish edition of Myśl Polska, has learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
This statement comes in response to the question of what scenarios the US would use if it were to go to war. According to Polish experts, there are two such scenarios, the first involving large-scale attacks on Russian territory and using of nuclear weapons.
The second scenario, written in detail in the article, is Russia’s economic isolation, which has a single purpose – to change political leadership.
The strangest part of the article, however, is not the two possible scenarios, but the author’s claim that one of the two may happen in the near future.
The author makes this claim based on the fact that in his opinion the United States needs a major and large-scale war and Russia is the enemy that the United States will conquer.
This is not the first time Poles are trying to understand how Russia can be destroyed.
Earlier this year, Polish General Waldemar Skrzypczak said in an interview in the Wirtualna Polska online media that if Russia invades the West, NATO will use nuclear weapons.
According to the General, Poland is a frontline state, one of the Alliance’s first frontiersmen on the path of the Russian threat. According to him, in the event of war, Poland could not stop Russia by itself. Skrzypczak pointed out that even NATO’s additional forces, located in his country, would not help, and the allies would need weeks to come to aid.
In this regard, we remind you that, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), nine states have nuclear weapons: Great Britain, Israel, India, China, Pakistan, Russia, North Korea, the United States and France.
“It is clear that nuclear weapons remain a central element in their military strategies and national security doctrines. Nuclear weapons have not lost their value for national security,” SIPRI researcher Shannon Kile says.

About 2000 nuclear warheads are maintained at a high readability state, SIPRI points out. The United States and Russia – the largest nuclear forces – own over 90 percent of the world’s nuclear arsenals. At the beginning of the year, the United States had 6,185 nuclear warheads, and Russia 6500. Both countries had reduced their stocks in line with the bilateral Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty of 2010, known as New START. The reductions affected obsolete warheads from the Cold War, but the pace of reductions is slowing down compared to 10 years ago, SIPRI adds.
