While most Americans were watching football or chatting around a backyard grill, American tanks, self-propelled Howitzers, and hundreds of other armored fighting vehicles were landing on the shores of northern Germany. To those who had one eye on the news, it was like watching a US invasion at Normandy all over again, without the tragic deaths of American soldiers.
Why the ominous build-up of American military hardware and soldiers in Germany, of all places?
Just the next phase of President Obama’s deadly saber-rattling crusade against perceived “Russian aggression.”
After eight years of “do nothing” reckless policies to prop up national security, the Progressive’s “great one” is using his final days in office to alienate allies like Israel and the Philippines and antagonize Russian President Vladimir Putin. Meanwhile ISIS, North Korea and Iran go untouched by Obama, and the US porous border is like a welcome mat for every illegal immigrant and terrorist wishing to step through the wide open door to US.
As MSN and CBS news reported last week, over 3,500 troops from the 4th Infantry Division in Fort Carson, CO will be deployed to operate the 87 tanks and 144 Bradley fighting vehicles. Joining the armored division will be a combat aviation battalion from Fort Drum, NY and Fort Bliss, TX with 84 attack helicopters and an additional 2,200 soldiers for a total of 5,700 troops; all to be aligned in countries along the Russian border.
What is Obama trying to do, start WWIII in the next two weeks?
Like the weak scrawny kid poking the biggest strongest bully to a playground fight, Obama continues to antagonize Putin with sanctions over the alleged Russian hacking, and has threatened military attack against the super power. Putin, however, doesn’t seem to be taking the bait, preferring to wait for the Trump administration to go fishing.
Putin has consistently out maneuvered Obama diplomatically and militarily for years now. However, Putin, far more superior strategically than Obama, understands in two weeks he will not be facing a government leader who is weak and a panderer. President-elect Trump has been very clear with his Reagan style message of “peace through strength,” and will make the US the strongest military might in the world.
Both Trump and Putin know the real threats in the world; North Korea, Iran, ISIS and China. Though Putin is leaving the door open with China should things go sour with the US, he seems to be more willing to work with the Trump administration in forming a new super power alliance. He and Trump have been in communication with each other and both have stated their willingness to “work together.”
Yet, that hasn’t stopped George Soros puppet Obama from doing as much damage to national and world security in his last few lame duck weeks. With this latest move, it is apparent the “anointed one” is trying to create as much chaos as possible.
Operation Atlantic Resolve, as it is being called, is the newest phase in adding and keeping a US armored brigade on the European NATO front and will operate on a nine-month rotational basis. With its headquarters based in Germany, the brigade will first enter Poland and then disperse throughout seven countries from Estonia to Bulgaria; a military front much closer to the Kremlin in Moscow than was setup during the Cold War with the former USSR.
U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced a planned buildup last year, with U.S. Army Europe Commander Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges calling the strategy, the “embodiment of the United States’ commitment to deterring aggression and defending our European Allies and partners.”
Since the announcement Putin had no choice but to counter the military move along Russian borders.
So who is the aggressor and who is only reacting to the aggression?
And why did Obama wait until now for the deployment?
Great Britain is also joining the military surge, having sent fighter jets to the Black Sea and a battalion of troops, tanks and light armor to Estonia later in the spring. Those troops with be supported by French and Danish troops while Germany will be bolstering troops and sending tanks into Lithuania.
Other counties participating in the “Enhanced Forward Presence” are Canada, Romania, the Netherlands, Albania, Croatia, Belgium, Italy, Slovenia and Luxembourg. The US will also be relocating its Stryker Unit from Germany to Poland to join the vastly expanded military presence. With this amount of saber rattling, Putin is countering the “threat” to Russia, going on the offensive by announcing plans to beef up the Russian military, having already moved forces to the border area and will be updating its nuclear arsenal, along with anti-missile defenses.
Not since President Reagan ripped down the Iron Curtain has there been such military buildups between the US and NATO against Russia; it appears the world is heading into a new Cold War era only with much more dangerous players and technologies entering the mix. China is also spending billions on its military might including exploring strategic arenas in space as reported recently on this site.
And let’s not overlook rogue states Iran and North Korea. Led by tyrannical, unstable and unpredictable regimes they have become the world’s leaders of state sponsored terrorism supporting and supplying terrorist groups like ISIS and Hamas. Could one of these volatile groups ignite the fuse that explodes the powder keg?
Due to eight years of Obama’s reckless and dangerous actions, the Trump administration will not only be facing the challenge of rebuilding the US economy. A weak and struggling economy further shattered by Obama’s Progressive Marxist ideals to bring about the Soro’s New World Order. The Trump administration will be facing a tense and chaotic world on the brink of war due to Obama’s intentional actions to bring about the destruction of the US as a nation.
But having perfected “the art of the deal,” Trump is already bringing companies, jobs, old alliances, and, in a word, STRENGTH, back to the US. Peace through strength has always the best historically proven approach in keeping others at bay and maintaining world peace. Jan. 20 can’t come soon enough.
