Former President Jimmy Carter has added his voice to those urging President Donald Trump to refrain from launching an illegal military attack on Syria, warning of the serious dangers – including nuclear conflagration – that could result.
“I pray that he would keep our country at peace and not exaggerate or exacerbate the challenges that come up with North Korea, in Russia, or in Syria,” Carter told The Associated Press about Trump’s recent threats.
“I hope he realizes very profoundly as I did, and as other presidents have done,” Carter continued, “that any nuclear exchange could involve catastrophe for all human beings.”
Carter pointed out that even a military attack that doesn’t escalate into a nuclear exchange “is a dangerous thing” that can unleash unpredictable consequences.
