(ed- The above illustration shows NATO forces installed within a few hundred miles from Moscow. How do you think the US Government would react if Russia put its military forces this close to Washington DC?
Over the last few days, some 2,800 pieces of military hardware and 4,000 troops have arrived at the port in Bremerhaven. The new forces will first be moved to Poland, where they will take part in military drills at the end of the month. They will later be deployed across seven countries, including the Baltic states, Bulgaria, Romania, and Germany. A headquarters unit will be stationed in Germany.
This article from US Mainstream Press is seeded with statements to give the impression that Russia is the aggressor threatening Eastern Europe and the Balkans when in fact it is NATO (i.e., the US) is the aggressor that is threatening Russia … as any school child can see. This link (click here) is one more example of scores of non-US-controlled news articles out there showing a more accurate side of the issue. But to find truth we must go outside the CIA-and -White House-controlled US media. People in America really need to read reports from non-controlled reporters. There are literally hundreds of alternative news sites to be found on the Internet … but Americans must have the initiative to actually look for them. The people of Europe don’t want war, and they don’t want NATO trying to instigate war with Russia. Americans will be very sorry if the idiots in government succeed in pushing Russia into an armed conflict. In fact, Americans should already be very sorry about the kind of government they have. The US Government is, by orders of magnitude, the worst enemy the American people have … and there are more Americans who are finally realizing it. Over 90% of all the trouble in the world today has been caused by the US Government … and Americans must wake up and begin to see what is really happening.
NATO (US) military bases are position all around the western borders of Russia, some within a stone’s throw of the border. And yet the damnable liars in US Government and US Media have the audacity to claim Russia is the aggressor.
These lying criminals that run the US Government and the US Media repeat the lie that Russian aggression caused the problem in Ukraine, and that Russia forced an annexation of Crimea. What blatant deception! Anyone who believes these lies, and the myriad of other lies from US warmongers, must be either completely immoral, dishonest, or incredibly naive.)
[HERE’S THE ARTICLE FROM FOX NEWS]
January 12, 2017
Thousands of U.S. troops crept up on Russia’s doorstep Thursday, rolling into Poland amid a slew of unanswered questions about their future in the region.
It marked the first deployment of armored brigade combat teams and armor to Europe after a long drawdown from the continent. For decades, Poland had asked for help in keeping Moscow at bay, but at the same time, President-elect Donald Trump has signaled he could try to pursue a friendly relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Still, the president-elect said Wednesday nothing was off the table. “I don’t know that I’m going to get along with Vladimir Putin. I hope I do. But there’s a good chance I won’t.”
Russia clearly wasn’t happy with the deployment. “We perceive it as a threat,” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. “These actions threaten our interests, our security, especially as it concerns a third party building up its military presence near our borders.”
Moscow also announced it deployed anti-aircraft missile systems around the city [ed. – around Moscow to defend against the NATO threat]. Russia had already been using the s-400 Triumph air defense system, capable of hitting moving targets including missiles and planes in Syria.
Soldiers in camouflage with tanks and other vehicles crossed into southwestern Poland on Thursday morning from Germany and headed for Zagan, their planned base. Poland’s prime minister and defense minister said they would attend official ceremonies Saturday celebrating the Americans’ arrival.
The deployment “symbolizes a turn in our efforts on this front, and is an important part of our continued effort to deter Russian aggression and maintain a free Europe,” U.S. European Command spokeswoman Meghan Henderson responded.
U.S. and other Western nations have carried out exercises on NATO’s eastern flank, but this deployment — which includes around 3,500 U.S. troops — marks the first-ever continuous deployment to the region by a NATO ally. It represents a commitment by President Barack Obama to protect a region that became deeply nervous when Russia stormed Ukraine and took over Crimea in 2014, and then began backing rebels in Ukraine’s east.
The deployment was “separate yet complementary to NATO’s deterrence and defense activities,” Henderson added.
Many people in Poland said they still felt betrayed by Obama’s own “reset” with Russia early on in his administration, which involved abandoning plans for a major U.S. missile defense system in Poland and replacing it with plans for a less ambitious system.
Many U.S. soldiers said they were optimistic. “Hopefully we can get right into training, get some range time in and have some fun,” Spc. Kyle Smith, an infantryman with the 1st Battalion, 8th Infantry Regiment, told Stars and Stripes.
(ed. – “Have some fun”??? Clearly, Russians don’t perceive this as “fun.”)
