The United States creates a shock "fist" at the borders of Russia


The Americans continue to demonstrate their "peacefulness" at the borders of Russia. They are currently carrying out another rotation of their units on the Eastern flank of NATO. Neither the COVID-19 pandemic nor social tensions and electoral leapfrog in the United States could affect this process. Washington is confident that containing Moscow's "aggressiveness" in Europe is a top priority.


Personnel and technique delivered by plane and ship across the Atlantic. The divisions change every nine months. Approximately half of the forces and assets are stationed at two bases in Germany (in Illesheim and Vilseck), and the rest is distributed to the Alliance's forward facilities in the Baltic States, Poland and Romania.

The rotation plan has been strictly observed since 2017, as it should create in the eyes of Russians the effect of the presence of a shock "fist" at their side and provide visibility of security for European partners who are enthusiastic about Russophobia. At the same time, the bases in Germany are used as rear and the Americans need more to influence Berlin than Moscow.

The 1st Armored Brigade from Fort Hood, Texas, known as the Iron Horse, from the 1st Cavalry Division, nicknamed First Team, is currently changing 2- the 3rd Panzer Brigade, the Spartans, from the XNUMXrd Infantry Division, headquartered in Fort Stewart, Georgia.

The "iron horses" are armed with about 60 M1A2B Abrams tanks, 120 M2A3 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles (in different versions), up to 18 M109A7 Paladin self-propelled guns, hundreds of tracked and wheeled vehicles, as well as trailers to move it all along European roads.

At the same time, a brigade of army aviation (helicopter), known as the "Demon Brigade" (Demon Brigade), took over on duty in Europe. It is part of the US Army's 1st Infantry Division known as the Big Red One of Fort Riley, Kansas. The brigade has about 2 thousand personnel and 80 helicopters (50 multipurpose UH-60 and HH-60 Black Hawk, 10 heavy military transport CH-47 Chinook and 20 attack AH-64 Apache).

All this indicates that Washington continues to conduct a "dialogue" with Moscow from a position of strength and is not going to "reset" relations.

      Seryozhka thinks that all this is not. And there are no American tanks and helicopters in Europe, and attacks on Crimea are not practiced, and Putin shows cartoons because he is bored.
      We have such an earring. Funny. Alternatively gifted.

      Everyone remembers the story of the shepherdess and the wolves?

      - are you not Armenian? The guys also relaxed. We thought it was a fairy tale.
      But the Russians do not relax and monitor the situation and react accordingly. Is it bothering you?

    The United States creates a shock "fist" at the borders of Russia

    The adequate response of the Russian Federation would be to create a strike force near the US borders, and not in Syria and Sudden.
    N.S. Khrushchev was more decisive, but in the end he also drifted but at least got something - the US bases with nuclear missiles were withdrawn from Turkey.
    Maybe someday, when we will wait, and the PRC will start building the Nicaguan and Malacca canals and deploy its military units and nuclear missiles there.

      The Nicaraguan canal has long fallen asleep in the Bose - a Chinese businessman who was going to build a canal with his company went bankrupt and the canal died without being born, although Nicaragua is not at all close to the United States.

    I think even Americans understand that this is "laughing chickens", not a fist. But the fundamental question is that NATO members do not want to make concessions in this trifle, but want them to yield, even in insignificant trifles. And the fact that our military budget is decreasing is precisely that "trifle" The USA and NATO really like it.

      The main purpose of these rotations and "kulaks" is to support their satellites from panic - Poland, the Baltic states and others ... After all, the United States with its internal problems is blown away, and these US mongrels remain alone on the ice, and they will have to answer for barking in the Russian Federation, ,. So they depict a defense with a hundred tanks and other tinsel ...

    In case of war, the first missiles should be sent to Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova.
