Military analyst issues dire warning about Russian jets buzzing U.S destroyer 14th April 2016
Retired U.S. Navy Capt. Chuck Nash says Russian President Vladimir Putin is using the recent provocation in the Baltic Sea and other incidents to prove the United States will not stand up to aggression and won’t do anything to stop Russia’s efforts to gobble up its former republics.
Nash, who served 25 years in uniform as a U.S. Naval aviator, was responding to reports that Russian jets repeatedly buzzed the U.S.S. Donald Cook in the Baltic Sea more than 30 times and even simulated attack maneuvers.
He told WND and Radio America Putin’s calculation is clear.
“Putin is trying to take down NATO without firing a shot,” Nash said. “His message to NATO is clear. His message to the Baltic States of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania is very clear. And that is, ‘The United States will not react, even when their nose is rubbed in it. So what makes you think they’re going to come to your defense if shooting starts or if we really start posturing heavily?’”
He added, “That message has been transmitted. And that message, trust me, has been received.”
Nash said Putin views the U.S. as weak and has ever since Obama began his presidency by bowing to multiple heads of states in other countries. He said Obama further proved Putin right by not enforcing the red line in Syria and doing nothing in response to the Russian annexation of Crimea and invasion of Ukraine.
Putin is licking his chops over what the final nine months of Obama’s time in office may let him get away with.
“He has no idea who’s coming in in January, but he knows who he’s got right now, and he’s going to exploit that,” Nash said. “My concern is that something really significant is going to happen in the nine months. His strategic goal is to take down NATO and to rebuild imperial Russia.”

Nash expects Russia to call the West’s bluff on the most important component of the NATO alliance.
“To take down NATO, all he’s got to do is get somebody to try to invoke Article 5, which is the mutual defense provision of the NATO treaty,” Nash warned. “All of a sudden, he’s going to see who in NATO stands up to that Article 5 call. If countries balk, NATO is done.”
