Iran and Russia form a ‘coalition from hell’ as Putin is ‘looking for an excuse to use WMD’

Vladimir Putin is looking for an excuse to use Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) as the ongoing conflict in the Middle East could distract the West from the war in Ukraine.

Tensions are on the tip of a knife edge between Israel and Iran and there are fears that war between the two countries could break out putting the Middle East on the brink.

Russia will be “delighted” by these events as he is “looking for an excuse to use WMD” in Ukraine.

Defence industry analyst and consultant Nicholas Drummond has warned Russia are hoping tensions in the Middle East will distract the West.

On Sunday Drummond wrote on X, “Yesterday evening [Saturday], Iran launched 185 drones, 110 ballistic missiles, and 36 cruise missiles at Israel.

“Thanks to US and British interceptions most of those weapons were shot down without them causing significant casualties. This does not change the severity of Iran’s actions.

This is the first time Iran has launched a direct attack against Israel from its own soil. For decades, Iran has attacked Israel through proxy terrorist groups. The 7/10 atrocities were orchestrated by Iran and were part of this wider conflict.

“In addition to deciding to eliminate Hamas, Israel responded to the 7/10 attacks by killing Iran’s most senior military figure in Syria, Mohammad Reza Zahedi, one of the people responsible for planning them.

“The question is what will Iran do next? And how will Israel respond? We are on the brink of a major conflict in the Middle East.

This will delight Putin as he seeks to annex Ukraine in its entirety. It is more than likely that Russia is planning to step-up its activities in Ukraine. He may even be looking for an excuse to use WMD.

“Unless Ukraine is given the resources to repel a renewed Russian onslaught, more territory will be lost. Quite independently of what happens in Ukraine, Putin is everyone’s problem.

“As noted elsewhere, Serbia may be preparing an assault against Kosovo, something that Putin may also be behind, adding to the general complexity and volatility of the geopolitical landscape.

“Iran and Russia are quite literally the coalition from hell. At the moment NATO / the West are acting like rabbits caught in car headlights. We do not need to act aggressively (yet) but we very urgently need to demonstrate strength.”
