(Natural News) Former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter — also a former United States Marine Corps officer — joins Mike Adams in a far-reaching interview that covers Ukraine, Russia, NATO and Nord Stream.

Ritter is of course heavily censored on mainstream platforms and is widely condemned by officials in the US government, including those in the State Dept. That’s because his analysis doesn’t coincide with the official propaganda being catapulted into the info war by the mainstream media.

Ritter’s take on the current situation is that Ukraine’s leadership (Zelensky) is hopelessly corrupt and deeply infested with Nazis and murderers who issue hit lists of journalists to execute. Ritter himself has now achieved the No. 1 top position on one such list that’s run by the Zelensky government. (Yes, the Zelensky regime quite literally runs a kill list that targets journalists.)

During the interview, I ask Ritter if he is “anti-war,” and he disagrees, stating that he wants peace for everyone, but is also trained on how to defeat enemies and is willing to go to battle to halt those who are aggressors against innocent people or nations. Ritter explains that NATO is the aggressor in this conflict, and that NATO has broken every promise, violated every treaty and incessantly lied its way into transforming Ukraine into a proxy state for NATO, from which the West plans to completely destroy Russia and its people.

I also ask Ritter about Russia’s nuclear weapons capabilities, hypersonic missiles, hyperglide vehicles and anti-air systems. He reiterates that Russia is far ahead of the West in weapons technology — both offensive and defensive — and that if Russia were to decide to launch nuclear weapons against western cities, there’s nothing in the US military defensive arsenal that could stop those missiles from reaching their intended targets.

Even worse, he explains that Russia has the Sarmat-II missile systems already deployed, and these missiles — which carry up to 15 nuclear re-entry vehicles each — can be launched on a trajectory over the South Pole, bringing them into the United States from a direction for which US national defense forces are not prepared. He explains that the US focuses its missile tracking and interdiction systems on the North Pole region, since that’s obviously the shortest distance between Russia and the continental United States. But Russia’s missiles have the range to go the other way and travel over the south pole of the planet.

(Note: I highly recommend listening to this entire interview of Scott Ritter by Mike Adams. As you can see from Scott's background shown below the video, he is highly qualified to discuss these issues. This is one of the best discussions about what is actually going on between the United States, NATO, Ukraine, & Russia and how we got here and what should be done. Wishful thinking isn't going to save the day. — RAD)
