Dempsey Fears Putin Lighting a Fire He Can't Control

Friday, at the Aspen Security Forum, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Martin Dempsey discussed his fear that the ongoing crisis in Ukraine could become an out-of-control fire forever changing relations beween Europe, the U.S., and Russia.

Dempsey said his “fear” is that “Putin may actually light a fire that he losses control of,” adding the “rising tide of nationalism” which can be a “very dangerous instinct and impulse” will “change the relationship of Europe and Russia and a change in the relationship of the United States and Russia.”

He concluded by saying, “The United States military is not war weary” and they “stand ready to do what the nation asks it to do.”
