Former CIA Official Gives Terrifying Scenario of Russia Counter-Attack After We ‘Declared War’


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

The United States has basically declared war on Russia already, a former CIA official has told Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

He explained to the host that the unprecedented sanctions placed on Russia from the administration of President Joe Biden, along with eh sending of weapons to Ukraine, has gotten the United States into a quasi-war.

“The possibility of a hot war are real and getting more real every day,” the former official said.

“What I’m asking America to do tonight is put aside their hatred for Putin or Zelensky, for that matter, or Ukraine or Russia,” he argued.


“Understand that we have in effect declared war against Russia. We have done three things. One, we have crippled their economy. Two, we are shoving in all of these weapons. And, third, this hasn’t gotten a lot of press. We are giving tactical intelligence to the Ukrainian government to put an X on the forehead of a Russian soldier and Russian equipment. Let me say its little differently. Our spies and satellites are helping the Ukrainians kill Russians. So, we have declared war,” he warned.

He also described what a cyber attack from Russia would look like.

“If in fact this gets hot, what happens? We know that it will escalate. And so that means some of the first steps will be what are called asymmetric, right? Russia can’t sanction our economy in the way that we did his. So he’s going to do things like a cyberattack,” he declared.

“I want people to ask themselves tonight: What if in their hometown, Russia were to shut off the lights, or the water? Do you think there might be riots? Probably. You brought forward this very horrific idea and notion tonight … of bread lines. Think that could get violent? Of course it could. So how would people’s mayors and governors respond to riots?

“We saw it a couple of years ago. Does that give you pause? See the BLM riots? … So we have a whole variety of issues about the sacrifice that will go on. That’s a whole different segment, but it involves young people dying. And we should also be talking about that because our people in Washington aren’t going to be the ones sacrificing,” he said.

This week Russia did sanction some officials in the United States but, as he said, it does not have the same effect that United States sanctions have on Russia, CNN reported.


“In response to a series of unprecedented sanctions prohibiting, among other things, entry into the United States for top officials of the Russian Federation, from March 15 of this year, the Russian ‘stop list’ includes on the basis of reciprocity President J. Biden, Secretary of State A. Blinken, Secretary of Defense L. Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff M. Milley, as well as a number of department heads and prominent US figures,” it said.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that it was “an inevitable consequence of the extremely Russophobic course taken by the current US Administration, which, in a desperate attempt to maintain American hegemony, has relied, discarding all decency, on the frontal constricting of Russia.”

“At the same time, we do not refuse to maintain official relations if they meet our national interests, and, if necessary, we will solve problems arising from the status of persons who appear on the ‘black list’ in order to organize high-level contacts,” it said.

The list of those sanctioned includes US President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, National security adviser Jacob Sullivan, CIA Director William Burns, White House press secretary Jen Psaki, Daleep Singh, Biden’s deputy national security adviser for international economics, United States Agency for International Development Administrator Samantha Power, President Biden’s son Hunter Biden, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo and Reta Jo Lewis, president and chairman of the board of directors of the Export-Import Bank

It said that more sanctions that will expand the list to include “top US officials, military officials, lawmakers, businessmen, experts, and media people who are Russophobic or contribute to inciting hatred towards Russia and the introduction of restrictive measures.”
