Obama and NATO have no common sense – this will not end well.
I have no respect for a leader of any country – who is stupid enough to poke a bear with a stick – with little of no provocation.
Willy Wonker – the Ukrainian chocolate King – and Ukrainian President – has built up forces in Eastern Ukraine and has resumed bombing civilians in the Donetsk region.
Then we have the Polish President allowing NATO to carry out its biggest exercise in Poland since the end of communism in 1989 – complete with a display of thousands of paratroopers – it emerged that Russian troops have been deployed to the Ukrainian border.
Scores of U.S. troops and then military vehicles parachuted into a spacious, grassy training area on the outskirts of the central city of Torun.
The force’s mission was to secure a bridge on the Vistula River as part of the Polish-led Anakonda-16 exercise that involves about 31,000 troops and runs through mid-June.
Then the U.S. and NATO have installed a missile defense system in Romania and neighboring countries – this is insanity and highly provocative – this will not end well for Europe – nor for America.
As reported by Reuters:
The United States switched on an $800 million missile shield in Romania on Thursday that it sees as vital to defend itself and Europe from so-called rogue states but the Kremlin says is aimed at blunting its own nuclear arsenal. (1)
European Union is in the cross hairs – as too the Americans – there is no doubt that the world is on the edge of an ugly situation
This will not end well.
Why is Obama permitting such a stupid and reckless actions is beyond me – he is making a grave mistake and for some reason the idiot in control wants to poke the bear with a number of sticks.
Then we have the U.K. getting involved with an approved transit of a Russian submarine through the straits of Dover – yes approved to attend the Battle of Jutland centenary.
Excerpt from the UK Guardian article:
“The Royal Navy has intercepted a Russian submarine as it cruised towards the Channel.
The sub was being escorted by the frigate HMS Kent on Tuesday evening and was expected to pass the strait of Dover on Wednesday morning.
It is understood that the Stary Oskol, a Kilo-class submarine capable of carrying cruise missiles and torpedoes, was first detected in the North Sea, where Nato forces are monitoring the waters.
The Ministry of Defence said it would continue to be shadowed by the Type 23 Duke-class frigate, which had been taking part in commemorations for the Battle of Jutland centenary.” (2)
Russia should be happy – an escort through the Straits – at least they could target that frigate first should a conflict arise – then the question would be – can the submarine fire its missiles?
The Obama administration continues to push the limits with Russian patience – by increasing military force levels in the Baltic states and Eastern Europe – and in the meantime Russia has started the process of deploying a larger force in a key location between Belarus and Ukraine in the town of Klintsy – 50 km north of the Ukrainian border.
“Russia is building an army base near its border with Ukraine, the latest in a chain of new military sites along what the Kremlin sees as its frontline in a growing confrontation with NATO.
While there have been no clashes between the former Cold War rivals, Russia is building up forces on its western frontiers at a time when the NATO alliance is staging major military exercises and increasing deployments on its eastern flank.”
“On the western side of the line, NATO has been rotating troops and equipment in greater numbers to members states that were part of the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact during the Cold War.” (3)
But please America – take note – NATO can be obliterated in 60 hours or less – and what about America?
Enjoy what your President is doing – after all he does know what he does – right?
It is a disturbing trend with the reported incidents with American naval vessels electronics being blinded in the Black Sea – by Russian aviation and a RAND Corporation assessment stating Russia’s ability to overwhelm NATO in less than 60 hours or less – the news from the Deputy Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine, and Eurasia Micheal Carpenter in testimony in front of the U.S. Senate yesterday is quite disturbing – see video below.
Putin has also stated:
“NATO fends us off with vague statements that this is no threat to Russia … that the whole project began as a preventive measure against Iran’s nuclear program. Where is that program now? It doesn’t exist. … We have been saying since the early 2000s that we will have to react somehow to your moves to undermine international security. No one is listening to us.”
