War on Syria will draw in Russia, trigger World War III: Analyst

A former US Marine says any foreign military intervention in Syria would instigate a third World War by inevitably getting Russia involved in the conflict, Press TV reports.

Ken O’Keefe, a former US Marine, told Press TV on Saturday that Russia would not remain indifferent to a potential military attack against Syria.

“Russia has made [it] very, very clear that they would not sit by and allow yet another country to be bombarded and effectively raped and pillaged in terms with the empires’ designs. It will not allow this to happen,” O’Keefe said.

He said a third world war was possible with “even thinking [about] … military intervention, whatever it is, whether it is using some high-tech weapons, secretly weapons and whatnot; the bottom line is that we are attempting the third world war,” he added.

On June 4, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned against any attempt at foreign military intervention in Syria, stressing that such a move is doomed to fail.

In April, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the West against attempting to topple the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

“There are governments and outside players that believe that all means are appropriate [to be used] to overthrow the Syrian regime,” Lavrov said.

O’Keefe added, “At the end of the day, these people who are in power, the banksters in particular are the ones pulling the strings for the Third World War,” the former Marine said.

The turmoil in Syria erupted in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of Syrian soldiers and security personnel, have been killed so far.

In May, Assad said militants from as many as 29 different countries were operating in different parts of the country.
