The Syrian War and the risk of a nuclear conflict

Robert Parry broke many of the Iran-Contra stories for The Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s. In the following article he claims a source close to President Putin told him that the Kremlin warned Ankara that it will be ready to use tactical nukes in case Russian forces in Syria would be in danger.
The risk of a world nuclear conflict can become now greater than during the Cold War because of blatant underestimation of Putin’s resolve by leading American and western elites.
