Moving heavy armor and weaponry into eastern Europe at this point, regardless of what US officials and NATO allies claim the reason to be; Putin will not see the advancement of equipment, vehicles, tanks and howitzers as party favors or sh*ts and giggles.

The advancement of such equipment on Europe's frontiers and Baltic states will be permanent, however; troops working through rotation and training exercises using the equipment will not be.

Source

RIGA, Latvia — In a significant move to deter possible Russian aggression in Europe, the Pentagon is poised to store battle tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and other heavy weapons for as many as 5,000 American troops in several Baltic and Eastern European countries, American and allied officials say.


Regardless of the posturing and gaming, in my opinion, it would appear as if the frontlines are being bolstered in case of military escalations, ...let's not kid ourselves here, it's been brewing an escalating for awhile, and as of now no one is backing down.

Just have a look at some of the days headlines. As news breaks that the US and NATO allies are moving heaving armor into Europe, China announces its successful test of a hypersonic vehicle capable of carrying a nuclear payload at ten times the speed of sound; a deterrent meant to send a signal over tensions in the South Pacific.

Double that with the recent hack of federal personnel and military intelligence by China, the subsequent technical issues with US passport and Visa system, and new allegations that Russia and China hacked Snowden files on the NSA; things could get interesting.

As NATO pushes eastward with armor, the West pushes westward with trade. Army on the east and west, and money up the middle. Quarterback sneak, problem is though, this isn't a second string defense, they may blitz.

I wish the USA would butt out of this stupid and inflammatory action. Its because America doesn't want a good relationship between Europe and Russia and neither does israel. So in order to stop that and the repercussions of russian influence concerning the middle east and furthering trade between russian and the eu, it thinks trying to influence the start of war in europe is a good ploy. Great because it isn't american soil but other people;s homelands. It will only be the bankers who will make money supplying both sides as usual e.g. men like bush and the rothschilds and rockerfellas and what member of the public would want to give any of these g-ts blood money.

With actions like this america politicians deserves the way the rest of the world sees their country. Putin is a clever man with brilliant advisers, especially his very experienced foreign minister and I can't think of one american politician who can match him. We don't have anything to boast about in uk politicians either. I just hope one or two EU politicians can see what the usa's real motives are.

Again america if you want a nuclear presence within the eu put in submarines. Whether Putin will simply regard your hardware you put in as something he might run a sortie to nick, is another matter though.

Or maybe it's because Russia keeps invading people.

Georgia applies to be a part of NATO. NATO says no. Russia invades.

Ukraine applies to be part of NATO. NATO says no. Russia invades.

Putin wants the former Soviet Slave States back under his thumb.

There you go with the "Russian Invasions" stories again.

Russia has NOT invaded any states. The examples you give are patently false.

Georgia was the instigator of it's own troubles after it shelled the two neighbouring breakaway republics and the Russian peacekeepers stationed there. Probably thought the US / NATO would step in and save them, but it didn't happen. After slapping them down, the Russian forces pulled back again, hardly an invasion!

As for the mythical invasion of Ukraine, again, it didn't / hasn't happened except in the rather warped minds of those on here that keep repeating it.

Then have been in good relations up until Russia did what it did in Ukraine...so what are you talking about?

Just so you know Russia is the EU's biggest trade partner, so they have a good relationship between the two...so again what are you talking about?



So in order to stop that and the repercussions of russian influence concerning the middle east and furthering trade between russian and the eu, it thinks trying to influence the start of war in europe is a good ploy.


I am going to ask again...what are you talking about?



With actions like this america politicians deserves the way the rest of the world sees their country. Putin is a clever man with brilliant advisers, especially his very experienced foreign minister and I can't think of one american politician who can match him.


Brilliant advisers you say...care to back that claim? They are right there lying to their people about the US and Ukraine, and are sending troops to Ukraine to die...brilliant advisers wouldn't kill their own people over Putins dream of a return to the old Soviet Union.

JFK, anhd Ronald Reagan are two that come to mind.



Again america if you want a nuclear presence within the eu put in submarines.


So where exactly has it been said the US wants nuclear presence within the EU?

And why would they when France and your country has them...sounds like someone has been drinking the Russian media lies a bit there.

LAst time I checked Crimea was in Ukraine and was invaded by foreign troops...you know Russian Spetsnaz, aka. little green men, or is Putin lying when he said he sent them there to do one specific thing annex Crimea for Russia?

Anytime a country sends armed troops to another country with the intention of taking over part of that country it is an invasion.


in·va·sion (ĭn-vā′zhən)
n.
1. The act of invading, especially the entrance of an armed force into a territory to conquer.
2. The entry into bodily tissue and subsequent proliferation of an injurious entity, such as a pathogen or tumor.
3. An intrusion or encroachment:

Interestingly enough 1 and 3 apply to Ukraine, but feel free to provide the source for your definition of invasion.

So then you are for Dagestan becoming a breakaway State and The West has every right to send troops to ensure it happens, and you have no problem with that?

Or more likely, you are AGAINST it, and thus, a hypocrite.

Russia invaded two countries. Removing their military after destroying Georgia's does not make it any less of an invasion.

I've just been watching and listening to 'The Big Questions' on BBC1 and it was all about 'Weaponry' and in particular 'Nuclear Weapons' and whether we should have Nuclear Weapons or not. Well, the Cold War came up in discussion (One from the 80's), what was said was that 'Nuclear Wapons' actually prevented a full scale War back then but would they prevent a 'Full Scale War' now??

A new 'Cold War' is brewing and this who is to say what will be fired when?? In the UK we've had many fly-by's over the last couple years from 'Russian' jets... they are definately preparing themselves. The UK on the other hand have cut back on Army Personnel and Aircraft!

With the USA moving Weapons and Troops into Baltic States, this will only enhance activity over Europe!

Just hope the 1% who control what happens will use their heads the right way.

It's amazing my friend that the usual posts that you replied too in thread that has stars from similar minded members is allowed to be posted considering its nothing but a lie

Considering the recent poll on this site and mirrored by other polls on other sites,the clear danger to the world is America with its actions but look at WW3 section and you would think otherwise with the usual garbage stories that go against reality and reasoning

The OP is correct and America wants to stop Europe trading with Russia,Even POTUS let the cat out of the bag saying America could supply Europe with gas

How does a poll change the fact that Russia invaded two countries? They have admitted to both invasions. Putin said he had special force units in Crimea and the annexation was planned well beforehand.

It's not meant to scare Russia, who already knows he would get big brother'd by the USA. It's meant to ease the fear of Russia's neighbors that they will be invaded next.

Maybe if Putin was saying he wanted to take control of the Netherlands rather than Finland your attitude would change.

I doubt that was the intent, as many here who don't like the US will back Putin as long as he is against the US...no matter the outcome.

Russia had forces allowed in Crimea and Crimea held an election rightly so after seeing the worrying violence against the eastern population instigated by the thugs in charge of Ukraine.

Those forces made sure the maniacs in charge of the Ukraine navy and army would not be able to issue orders to them and start bloodshed in Crimea,and potentially saved many lives

Ukraine has not been invaded by Russia,and Russia knows it's a baited trap

That poll shows you are the minority and the rest using logic can bypass the disinformation and smears and see who the the real instigators are

Relations between Russia and US are like between two neighbours.

One is bigger richer and a jerk throwing garbage over the fence.

The other is weaker but he won't relent because he KNOWS he is right and has justice on his side (Russia)

Well, you're not biased at all..

There's plenty of evidence contradicting your rhetoric, would you care to provide some concrete proof?

Ummm no. Russia sent those forces for this specific purposes. Their forces were confined to base, were limited in number, and could not be used this way. It was an invasion, Putin admitted it. Putin admitted the annexation was determined before the vote even happened ... where as little as 50% of the population voted, and Russia refused to let anyone except Russian soldiers monitor.

Again, can the US send troops into Dagestan, let them vote, and then annex Dagestan? You would have no problem with that?
