Washington prepares Europe for war

It is remarkable, that such kind of American diplomacy, as well as the exercise Defender-Europe 20, begins to scare even NATO allies.

Submitted by Lukas Ramonas…

As you know, large-scale NATO maneuvers Defender-Europe 20 will soon begin. Nearly 40 thousand troops will take part in the exercise. The exercise will be held in 10 European countries, including Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland and Germany.

These maneuvers will be the largest transfer of troops directly from the United States to the European continent in more than 25 years. For the first time, an American division will be transported to Eastern European countries located directly on the border with Russia; 37,000 soldiers and 35,000 military vehicles will be transported eastward through Germany.

As we can see, the U.S. and NATO plan to hold an uncovered demonstration of power, transferring a huge number of soldiers and military equipment to the borders of Russia.

Despite the deep crisis in U.S.-Russia relations and the unprecedented threat of military conflict between two nuclear countries, such a behavior of Washington is not something new. The U.S. openly acknowledges that diplomacy and consultations are not for them. The most attractive is the “dialogue” with other countries using a position of strength and a demonstration of military power.

It is remarkable, that such kind of American diplomacy, as well as the exercise Defender-Europe 20, begins to scare even NATO allies.

So, the danger of U.S. provocation with use of a large number of soldiers and military equipment was realized in Germany.

Thus, the deputies of the Bundestag from the Left Party prepared this week an appeal to the federal government of Germany. In this document they urged to abandon the “deployment of troops at the Russian border” as part of the U.S.-led Defender-Europe 20 exercise.

German politicians worry about authorities’ support of U.S. troops transfering to the East and sending contingent to military exercise in the Baltic States and Poland instead of taking steps to reduce tensions.

“The fact that NATO plays with the military stability of Europe precisely on the days of the approaching 75th anniversary of the victory over Nazi fascism is an insult to the Russian population and many people in other countries. Their ancestors made the biggest sacrifice and made the greatest efforts to free Europe from fascism during the Second World War”, they say.

Indeed, European countries support the United States and become Washington’s puppets in their rivalry with Moscow instead of taking their own steps towards mutual understanding, dialogue, easing tensions and creating a collective security system in Europe. In the other words, America regularly uses violence in order to assert its right to govern and exploit others.

Incidentally, such demonstration of military power as Defender-Europe 20 military exercise questions the future of the remaining arms limitation and control agreements in Europe. It is obvious that all the participants of such aggressive actions become potential targets of Russian missiles in the future.

It is obvious that Russian generals are thinking over options for defense in such an environment and adjusting their future actions in case of military aggression against them.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted that Russia would not leave these maneuvers without attention. “Of course, we will respond. We cannot ignore processes that are of great concern. But we will react in such a way that it does not create unnecessary risks”, Lavrov said.

As you can see, the situation is similar to the fact that the U.S. is trying to provoke a military conflict in Europe.

Unlike the United States, Russia conducts military exercises on its territory, moves military units on its territory and stores its nuclear weapons on its territory.

Unfortunately, the situation in the sphere of international security is getting worse. The risk of a large-scale war is increasing. However, not everyone understands the consequences. The patience of nuclear Russia was enough for German politicians. Let’s hope that this patience will be enough for all countries.

Then when Russia, deploy her troops as a countermove on the border, as a precaution, which is standard military praxis, when you have large troops massing on your borders from an unfriendly military alliance then they call it “Russian aggression” that is completely ridiculous.

Luckily, Russia does not need to mobilize large numbers of men and vehicles in response. Today, any such extensive concentration of infantry, armour and artillery is simply a big, juicy target for Iskanders and the like.

As Attila the Hun – who knew a thing or two about war – liked to say, “The thicker the corn, the more easily it is mown!”

I concur, it seems that the western leaders have forgotten the words from Sergey Karaganov, a personal advisor to President Vladimir Putin, who gave an interview to Der Spiegel that was published on July 13, 2016 when he warned that Russia will never ever again fight a war on it’s own territory. For every person with an IQ above room temperature, these words should send shivers down his spine.

The Washington murderers are certainly putting Russia under great pressure, in their apparent efforts to exterminate the human species. Trying to cope with Washington’s incessant, unresting aggression must be like dealing with a swarm of locusts or a plague of rats. They pile up soldiers, tanks, armoured vehicles, aircraft, missiles and nuclear bombs. Then they sail their toy warships around everywhere, taking special care to come within spitting distance of “enemy” shores and bases. Not satisfied with all this, they denounce treaties limiting thermonuclear weapons and missiles. Then, just in case their previous efforts were insufficient, they pay scientists to… Read more »

Well, let’s face it, it will only take 7 nukes to rid the planet of the madmen:
1/ District of Columbia (military)
2/ CITY OF LONDON (banking)
3/ The Vatican (religious)
4/ Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (Wahabbi terrorism)
5/ Tel Aviv (the new Kazaria)
6/ The Rothchilds (banking)
7/ Pentangle ( so-called military)

Nuke all of them at the same time and remove the heads of the Hydra.

I used to think Scotland regaining its independence would be the greatest event in my life , but now Im beginning to feel it might be if and when a western European country has the moral backbone and political balls to tell the US to go and fuck itself …. which surely needs to happen, hopefully by all. Talk about definitions of idiocy … just say America!

Thanks, but no thanks! We do not want war in Europe. We do not need war. Europe has had so many wars during the past two thousand years that this will last for another two thousand – at least. Let’s rather have two thousand years of peace now.

Surely the question must be USA we don’t fuckin want you in Europe, all the idiotic leaders in Europe know the score, so if they were worth a toss they would tell the yanks to go. This is not going to happen, so Russia will have to bomb Europe, killing millions, all because Europe’s leaders were always full of shit. I just hope London is identified as a necessary target, because that will at least get rid of some of the mechanics of warmongering scum, and rebuilding will be impossible. It’s not the machines of war we need to be… Read more »

TASS: Russian Pantsyr-S1 systems arrive in Serbia – defense minister — According to the Serbian mass media, two out of six Pantsyr-S1 systems reached Serbia via Bulgaria’s airspace BELGRADE, February 22. /TASS/.

37,000 troops and 35,000 vehicles.
This recalls Churchill’s comment when 70,000 troops with 18,000 vehicles were landed in Italy in the Anzio debacle.
“We must have a great superiority in drivers.”

I love this anti-American superiority nonsense while the same people promote the EU forming its own military.

Let me remind people that Germany has caused both World Wars.
One due to forming alliances empowering leaders that should not have been empowered and then the National Socialist Party a la NAZIs.

Germany making Russia wealthy and helping China’s belt and road will lead to a war for the transfer of power.

RE: Let me remind people that Germany has caused both World Wars.

Let me remind you that there are two sides to every story. Of course, the msm prefers that you only hear their take on events.

Olivia Kroth

Yes, true. The msm like rewriting history, especially when it comes to World War II. West good, Russia bad – that’s what their historic view is, and they will adapt their texts accordingly, torturing the truth, until it dies.

Wrong: Germany was not responsible for either of the World Wars. Britain and France and the International banksters were the culprits in both.
Now, who are you, that you should tell such a giant whopper here and expect to get away with it?

There are signals of COLD WAR… RUSSIA IS WINNING… but Russia does not buy the idea. And so many people across the planet run away from new economic blocs of this new world order revolution… Not globalization, but countries pro blocs. Countries with many blocs each. Identity. Neoliberalism implying in strong governments. The Eurozone does not respect EU each country. There is not a true sovereignty in EU. Colonies’ failures.

The crazies in Washington (and all the other NATO capitals) that have been driving the Military Industrial Complex to ever more reckless misadventures over the past 30 years ruined the “peace dividend” that was supposed to usher in a new era of peace and prosperity following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Now they are squandering everything on behalf of their oligarch investors to manufacture and sell more weapons than ever. What a waste of time and resources!

The USA are the most evil political entity in the world. Since worldwar I there is no country on this planet who did not suffer from the US aggressiveness of teir military, the banking power behind the military and the deep corruption of its political system. The US are turning this planet to a place of hell if Russia and China will not stop the US horror. The silk road is a phantastic enterprise for humanity and so is the diplomacy of Russia. I hope that Europe will come to its raison. For too long Europe played the US servant.… Read more »

Yeah…remember when President Reagan placed Pershing II missiles in West Germany. This same sort of pearl-clutching resulted from the usual AmeriPhobes over us “starting” a war…WHICH NEVER HAPPENED! And it never happened, Mr. Christoforou because we on BEHALF of Free Europe, were then able to negotiate from a position of strength, as opposed to the position of weakness you all seem to think is GoodRighteousMoralHoly…. You know why today it is “Germany”, and not “West Germany”? Because of Strength, Komrads! Not empty “diplomacy and consultations”. You’re WELCOME.

Gray seems to be one of the usual US bootlickers, there are plenty of them in Germany. “Komrads”, ha! Now, after they lost the war, Germany is without Königsberg, which belongs to the Russian Federation and is called Kaliningrad. “Diplomacy and consultations” bye bye.

You’re wrong. Before reunification, there was BRD (western part) and DDR (eastern part- not all because of partially adopted to Poland after WWII). Then after 1989- the DEUTSCHLAND’s real name is still Bundesrepublik Deutschland BRD. You mind the goal?
The western part was sucking it all, with contractual promisses to never install NATO in former eastern parts of Germany and also newer install nuclear arms there.

All Russia has to do is make a statement via the UN that in the event of an attack against Russia instigated by the US from Europe then the US will be destroyed followed by selected European seats of power. That would get the message across.
Simple choice; peace or war.

The US has nothing left to say to the world: it cannot compete fairly anymore in the world economy. It cannot maintain its level of employment without pushing more and more billions into the military. It is obvious this isn’t sustainable. Trump, if he wins a second term, will reach the end of this system. He needs not only NATO to buy more US military gear to keep the MIC profitable, but he needs a way to use up the weapons piled up over years of over spending on the military. But of course it cannot be a war that… Read more »
