Numan Kurtulmus, the Deputy Prime Minister of Turkey, warned the the Syrian conflict would spark a full out conflict between Russia and America.
Colonel Richard Kemp dismissed the caution, as he argued World War Three already started on 9/11 when terrorists killed almost 3000 people.
Speaking to TalkRadio, the former chief said: “I think we’re well into the Third World War. The major beginning of World War Three was 9/11.”
Col Kemp continued: “I don’t subscribe to the view the conflict in the middle-east will lead to nuclear conflict.
“It’s essentially the first international insurgency, as opposed to an insurgency which takes place within the civilian population in one particular country.”
Col Kemp said: “We now have an international insurgency which is effectively Islamic jihadists the world over, who are determined to instigate their way of life onto Muslim and non-Muslim countries by violent means.
“It’s happening more or less everywhere in the world.
“We’ve seen fighting take place in virtually all countries around the world since then, albeit not in a form that we would recognise.
“The modern version of a world war is what we’re seeing.”
