Meh, wargames, happen all the time.
Projection of power for sure.
The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.



NBC News describes the deployment of 87 tanks, 144 armored vehicles, and 3,500 troops “the biggest U.S. deployment in Europe since the end of the Cold War.”
CNN adds that eight allied warships are heading for the Black Sea for an exercise off the coast of Romania, in response to Russia’s militarization of Crimea. (The term “allied” was used in the report because it is not officially a NATO exercise; it just happens to be an exercise conducted by a large number of NATO countries).

I don't know where Hodges is from but in my neck of the woods when you transport a full armored brigade half way across the world to fire at the doorstep of a rival power the message you're trying to send tends to get a little confused.

russia-insider.com...


A Colorado-based U.S. Army armored brigade has deployed to Poland to deter Russian aggression. It's part of a new rotational plan designed to keep U.S. Army ground forces in the area indefinitely. The deployment and others like it are meant as a warning to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose 2014 annexation of the Crimea and intimidation of Scandinavian and Baltic countries has prompted local politicians to as NATO for a show of force.

So either Bannon is trying to start a war or is egging Trump into one.

But, but...it actually is just a training exercise. Breitbart isn't the most reliable source.
US and Polish troops hold first joint training in Poland


*ETA - Yes, it is fake news, if the link didn't help anyone figure it out.

Published January 30, 2017
WARSAW, Poland – The first joint training exercises in Poland for U.S. troops and their Polish counterparts are underway.

A U.S. armored brigade of 3,500 troops from Fort Carson, Colorado deployed this year to Zagan, southwestern Poland, as a deterrence force on NATO's eastern flank.

Exercises that started Monday at the Zagan Military Training Area involved land troops from the U.S. and Polish armies, tanks and armored vehicles.

Poland's President Andrzej Duda and the U.S. ambassador to Poland, Paul Jones, observed the training. They stressed that the U.S. troops' presence was strengthening the region's security and also bilateral ties.

Duda said: "God bless Poland, God bless America, God bless American soldiers." The force comes as reassurance to nations in the region that are nervous about Russia's growing military activity.

Yup, me too.

I hope this is just fake news. It probably is, and we won't be seeing WWIII today.

The quote in the Op says:




CNN adds that


So I guess it's from CNN, which IS fake news. Whew!

Just about every news article on the arrival of the “Iron Brigade” in Poland mentions European anxiety over President Trump’s criticism of NATO as “obsolete.” The current exercise in Poland, which was planned long before the 2016 election, is being portrayed as an effort to reassure Europe, as well as a warning to Moscow.


Meh.

How many tank did Hitler use when he invaded Russia? This might not work as well as planned

If you thought WW3 was starting tonight I'm sure you would post your thoughts about it rather than just the words and links from 2 articles.

Someone messed up bad on those numbers, but the point still stands.

This is a just an exercise, Breitbart is just using a click bait title.

We can see the volume of armor and other vehicles in this post I made earlier in the month.

We been hearing about the rotation of NATO armor going into Poland this last week, so lets take a look at some of that armor during loading and transport.






And now some footage from the training exercises.



Germans are also deployed


Just seems like normal war games to me though.
