US Sends Tanks To Netherlands To Bolster NATO Against Russia

  Are you ready for war with Russia, and please understand, if Obama and Hillary Clinton get their war China will back up Russia. The issue is so deep and the media owned by the elite, do not see this, if they start a war, most of the world will die, only the elite will survive deep in their underground tunnels.

 

A Cold War-era storage facility in the Netherlands has been reopened and about to be restocked with tanks by the US military, as part of a drive to demonstrate NATO’s power amid rising ‘Russian aggression’.

1,600 vehicles are due to be stored at a six-warehouse complex in the southeastern village of Eygelshoven, near the Belgian and German borders.

 

US Sends Tanks To Netherlands To Bolster NATO Against Russia

RT reports:

 

The facility was originally opened in 1985 during the Cold War, when it was used by US troops to practice drills in case of a possible Soviet attack.

Abrams Tanks, Bradley Fighting Vehicles and Paladin artillery have already started arriving in what is part of a $3.4 billion Congress-approved scheme to increase NATO military capability in Europe. Storage sites are also planned to be reopened in Poland, Belgium and Germany.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2017, which was approved by Congress on December 8 but has yet to be signed by Barack Obama, approved a $3.4 billion spending plan to boost European defenses. The Baltic states, as well as Poland, have said they have been greatly alarmed by the crisis in Ukraine and fear “Russian aggression” on their territories.

“When visiting the Baltic states, I experienced this for myself. Standing there, near the Russian border, you could feel the tense atmosphere,” said General Tom Middendorp, the Dutch chief of defense.

“But the Russian military activities are not just a concern for our eastern allies. They are a concern for all of us.”
“We are taking proportionate and measured steps to defend our alliance. We want to make sure we are sending a clear signal to Russia that we will not accept any violation of NATO’s territorial integrity.”

US President-elect Donald Trump has frequently said he would like to pursue better relations with Russia, and has expressed skepticism towards NATO, saying that European powers would have to contribute a bigger part of the budget if they wanted to continue relying on the alliance’s protection. But in spite of Trump’s election victory, NATO governments have continued to build up their forces in Europe. While the Dutch storage facility is far from the Russian border, on Wednesday Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz announced that 4,000 US troops would be deployed to the western town of Zagan in January. And back in November, the US military sent over 600 containers of ammunition to Germany, the largest single shipment in more than 20 years.

In addition, NATO frequently stages large-scale military exercises in Eastern Europe, the most recent of which being the annual Iron Sword drills in Lithuania which involved almost 4,000 troops from 11 NATO countries. Previous Iron Sword exercises in 2015 and 2014 involved only 2,500 and 2,000 troops, respectively. But this was dwarfed by the Anaconda 2016 exercises held in Poland, which saw 31,000 personnel from 24 NATO and ‘partner’ countries taking part in war games over a ten-day period.

Russian officials, meanwhile, have consistently warned that aggressive NATO maneuvers near Russian territory could undermine regional security. In response to the ongoing NATO activity, Russia and its ally Belarus have supplied the latest state-of-the-art weaponry and armaments to units stationed on their western border as well as launching military drills of their own

   I might remind some people that our involvement in Korea, although a UN Operation, every one of the Military Operational plans against North Korea and Chinese Troops, had to be approved by UN military designee's, some who happened to be military members of the Soviet Union and  member, of the Security Council, Therefore any Military Operations conducted by US Forces were known in advance by the Soviets and would be assumed that North Korean and Chinese COMMUNIST TROOPS would have the same information. So much for the integrity of our Military Intelligence efforts in Korea !!!!  It was also known (but never published by our intrepid Mainstream Media Outlets) that Soviet Pilots were actually FLYING MIG-15s in Korea ( with military airport facilities in Southern China) to test American Air Defenses and US Pilot acuity.

The KOREAN WAR was a FARCE and the USA was NEVER TO BE ALLOWED TO WIN !!!! A PRECURSOR TO VIETNAM !!!!!  You will note that NORTH KOREA and NORTH VIETNAM were BOTH COMMUNIST NATIONS, supported vigorously by Red China and the SOVIET UNION !!!!! AND........ in both instances the Soviets had troops actively participating in military operations against American and UN Troops but were (Conveniently immune from  American and the international NEWS medias, as to that fact). Thousands of Americans DIED in both Wars but never did our Government ADMIT the TRUTH about Soviet participation or interference in determining our obvious inability to win either one of them. We could have, if the Rules of Engagement were different, and if the FIX were not in, against our troops, and if the COMMUNIST influence deep within our Government was NOT a factor. Today.....it is even WORSE and something our future PRESIDENT MUST ADDRESS !!!!!!!

Trump’s nation-building pledges to be tested in Afghanistan
President-elect Donald Trump’s pledges to end the nation-building missions of the military will be tested in Afghanistan, where President Obama repeatedly came up against the reality of a country unready for U.S. forces to leave.
Trump will inherit a military drawing down in Afghanistan to 8,400 troops, well above the 1,000 Obama originally wanted to leave at just the U.S. embassy in Kabul.
