The reason for the deployment of the US 101st Airborne Division in Romania may not be Ukraine, but Moldova


The “elite” 101st US Airborne Division was quickly transferred to the countries of Eastern Europe, including the territory of Romania. Placement of 4,7 thousand "Screaming Eagles" or "Changing Chickens" on the European theater occurred for the first time in 80 years. This was reported to the public by the American television company CBS News, giving some details.


The report notes that the reason for the transfer across the Atlantic was the exercise. The deployment of this tactical formation by the US Army should send a signal to Russia that the Americans "can go" to Ukraine if necessary. The division commanders told the TV channel that they arrived to protect the eastern flank of NATO, but there are nuances.

If there is a military escalation or an attack on the North Atlantic Alliance, then they are able to cross the border of Ukraine and are fully prepared for such a development of events

the military said.

According to the channel, the maneuvers will take place a few kilometers from the Ukrainian border. Moreover, the military personnel who arrived from Fort Campbell will be placed at bases in Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Slovakia. Fort Campbell is an American base in Christian County (Kentucky, USA). The base is the permanent location of several units of the US armed forces: the 101st Airborne Division, the 160th Special Forces Aviation Regiment, the 5th Special Operations Forces Group of the US Army, the 502nd Military Police Battalion and the 531st Military Hospital.

At the same time, CBS News bypassed the ongoing turbulent political processes in Moldova, which is located between Romania and Ukraine. Moreover, the Western media began to regularly mention the "Romanian Moldova", which, as it were, hints at a possible development of events. In this regard, there is a high probability that the reason for the deployment of the US 101st Airborne Division in Romania may be not so much the protection of NATO and further advancement to Ukraine, but the situation in Moldova and neighboring Transnistria. The thing is that Moldova does not have an army in the usual sense. But Romania has it and is very strong. With the support of the Americans, the Romanians can “enter” Moldova in order to attack the PMR from the west, and the Armed Forces of Ukraine will help them from the east, striking from Ukraine.

    Here it is, indecision and careful attitude towards their friends in power - I mean our inconspicuous MO. We waited for the NATO members to turn around and begin to press for real, even screaming eagles came up ((
    translated, by the way, "screaming eagles"
    This is what happened, unfortunately. It seems that soon it will flare up everywhere, it remains only for China to start on Taiwan and some kind of Colombia and Venezuela grapple. Something will be fun, then we will live))

    The base is the permanent location of several units of the US armed forces: the 101st Airborne Division, the 160th Special Forces Aviation Regiment, the 5th Special Operations Forces Group of the US Army, the 502nd Military Police Battalion and the 531st Military Hospital + army of Romania + two or three brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine + army of Moldova (any kind).
    In Transnistria, the OGRF of the Russian Federation has at most 1500 people. + TMR army (5000 people) + people's militia. All this without a single aircraft, a single air defense missile, with five T-64 tanks on the territory that is shot through (10-15 km). Yes, there is a warehouse of Soviet used supplies, but it is located 1,5 km away. from the border of Ukraine and will be instantly destroyed.
    Hundreds of thousands of citizens of the Russian Federation live in the PMR. They don't even have anywhere to run. Around the war. Thirty-two years of struggle, deprivation, blockades just because they did not betray Russia!
    Transnistria is part of Russia. And, believe me, not the worst, but much better than its other parts. Here people died for their Motherland, for the right to speak Russian. Where else has this happened at the present stage?

    In short - "layer cake". It's time to resolve issues of adjustment, division into potentially attacked landmarks along the perimeter of Transnistria.

    Why does the Romanian army need the support of American units if there is no army in Moldova capable of resisting the Romanians?
    On the other hand, the statement in the media of the commanders of the American division (quote from the article under discussion):

    If there is a military escalation or an attack on the North Atlantic Alliance, then they are able to cross the border of Ukraine ...

    By "military escalation" one can understand anything, including the ongoing hostilities in Ukraine within the framework of the NMD. That is, what has been said is nothing more than a declaration of the readiness of the 101st Airborne Division of the United States to take a direct part in the SVO on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Naturally, by order of his American command.

    They lay straws in case of a breakthrough of the Russian Federation towards Odessa. They are afraid of the capture of the whole of Moldova.
    If in the emergency plan of Moldova - to surrender to the Romanians, then the meaning of such a transfer is obvious.
    Let them give back, but without Transnistria.
