What is behind the transfer of elite American troops to Romania


"Who owns the Heartland - he owns the world" (c). This maxim belongs to the famous British geographer of the last century, Oxford University professor Halford J. Mackinder. He first voiced it on January 25, 1904 in his report to the Royal Geographical Society and later consolidated it in the famous article "The Geographical Axis of History". Since then, the term “Heartland” (middle earth) he used has become the main concept of the entire Western geopolitical concept, replacing the concept of the “axis of history”, and this concept itself has become the starting point for the development of all modern classical Western geopolitics and geostrategy.


The original maxim was:

Whoever controls Eastern Europe commands the Heartland; whoever controls the Heartland commands the World Island (that is, Eurasia and Africa); whoever controls the World Island commands the world.

In Professor Mackinder's mind, the Heartland was no longer an independent political power, but became only an amplifier of the power of the power that controls Eastern Europe. The professor, apparently, was not embarrassed by the fact that there was a certain state on this territory, referred to as the Russian Empire (then still tsarist, later transformed into the USSR), and that it was she who, in fact, controlled this territory, and, therefore, according to his concept and ruled the world. Apparently, for the proud Englishman, and later for his followers who took this concept into service, this was just an unfortunate misunderstanding that they hoped to eliminate in the future. What they tried to do twice - the Entente in 1918-1920 and Hitler in 1941-1945 (in both cases unsuccessfully).

Now Grandpa Joe, with the hands of brainless Ukraine, made a third attempt. And don't be embarrassed that the fighting is taking place in Ukraine and not in Russia, since both of them are integral parts of the Heartland. At the same time, Grandpa Joe does not even expect to win this war with the help of a brainless and disenfranchised Ukraine, his plans include raising the price of this victory for Russia so much that it will lead to inevitable social problems within Russia itself, which will have to destroy it from the inside, since it will win from the outside it is impossible (the experience of Hitler and Napoleon apparently taught the modern conquerors of the Heartland something).

Moreover, some speakers in the West, in particular NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, have already agreed that the fate of the entire collective West will depend on the outcome of this war:

The fate of 500 years of Western hegemony is now being decided in Ukraine - we cannot lose this war

he recently told the AP news agency.

Those. the fate of the entire collective West is at stake. No more and no less! The NATO Secretary General, apparently, is not embarrassed by the fact that 3,1% of world GDP takes part in these hostilities against 0,01% of world GDP (namely, the countries participating in this conflict have such a share of world GDP). Maybe something is wrong with world GDP, if 3,11% of it has such an impact on world history? No, says old Jens, the entire 500-year hegemony of the collective West is at stake. Well, then, so be it - it means that in this war we also have no right to lose, and, therefore, the end of the hegemon. And what do you want - it's either us or them. There is no third!

Amusing troops Zelensky


We talked about the 500-year hegemony of the West, and now we will return from heaven to sinful earth. The Anglo-Saxons, the owners of Zelensky, have this common expression: "If something looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck." "If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck." The expression is a tracing-paper from English and is widespread in the USA and Great Britain. Why did I suddenly remember this? If in the country with which we are now at war the commander-in-chief looks like a clown, talks like a clown and behaves like a clown, then his army will fight like a clown. Just do not remind me now of the miracles of the heroism of this clown army, I am better than you aware of their heroism. I'll just give a couple of recent examples of their unparalleled exploits, after which you just want to shrug your shoulders - well, why is it all?

The first such example occurred at the beginning of the war, when Clown threatened a platoon of his fighters by sending them to set up a border post in the middle of a Kharkov field. So what if the enemy (i.e. us) put a couple of these porters there, dragging this border post back and forth and taking selfies against its background? The thing was worth it. By the way, this did not prevent them, having shot this patriotic video, to leave a pole at the filming site and rush out from there, carrying away the wounded and the dead. This heroic episode was told by none other than the head of the Kharkiv department of the SBU, who fell out of favor with Zelensky and was dismissed from his post with the wording “as having lost confidence” (it is strange that the one who lost confidence was dismissed, and not in prison?). So these heroic clowns came to the Russian-Ukrainian border, which did not exist in nature (the non-brothers did not bother to demarcate it in 30 years of their independence).

These carpetmen performed another clown's feat when, on the orders of their ringmaster, they installed a yellow-black banner on the infamous Snake Island. Then, for the sake of this, their boss sent several more of his specially trained heroes from the Special Operations Forces to another world. Note that the Clown does not fight - he shoots videos, however, for the actors involved in them, with a fatal outcome. Such a master of horror - Hitchcock, looking at this, "rests" and nervously smokes bamboo on the sidelines.

Then the videos fell like a cornucopia. The Kherson operation, when Ukrainian Hitchcock's suicide soldiers captured all the morgues from Krivoy Rog to Odessa in two or three swift throws. Simultaneously with it, the landing of an unparalleled river assault on the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Forces, when about three hundred of the best naval saboteurs of the 73rd Special Naval Operations Center of the Ukrainian Navy, who fell under the distribution of our VKS, left for another world. Everything is done as if on purpose. The clown, accustomed to spotlights and applause, cannot and does not want to do otherwise, the fact that others die at the same time does not bother him - he is a director, he sees himself this way, and stuntmen have such a job - to risk their lives, they are paid for it (by the way, still far and not all!). Here, who studied what. The clown studied to be a video director. When he is finally banged, he will say: “What director is dying in me!” and think whether he dies beautifully, no, it’s better to put the light in a different way and hit the camera from above.

His next masterpiece appeared during a lull, a week before the Kherson counter-offensive - the militants filmed on the phone the capture of another uncontrolled settlement in the gray zone (the village of Ozernoye in the Kramatorsk direction), the raising of the yellow-Blakyt flag over some barn and a happy escape back - thank God that everyone remained alive and well. What is the Commander-in-Chief - such are the warriors. The main thing is to raise the flag, and at least the grass does not grow there. True, they all failed to return home alive, they covered them on departure, I saw their corpses scattered along the river, nailed by a wave in the reeds. Yesterday they were alive, rejoiced at this, and now they are already in heaven. Such is the cruel price of videos for their president, who lives by the principle that victory is not what it really is, but what was shown on TV. And therefore, even three farms captured for half an hour and a yellow-black rag over one of them will be presented as a victory for which the West is obliged to pour money, which it regularly does, gathering monthly at the US military base in Ramstein in Germany. On November 16, he poured another bunch, where only Canada for a winter uniform for a coming out amusing army rolled off as much as half a billion dollars!

Our hero began at the beginning of the war with the fact that he himself ran in a funny helmet and body armor along imaginary battlefields that were a hundred or two kilometers away from the real ones, and at the same time he was not embarrassed that the guards walking nearby did not even bend down from imaginary explosions of "mines". ". Then the Clown realized that running around the battlefields, even imaginary ones, was not a royal thing, he sent other actors to them (and, moreover, to real battlefields), and he himself took up shooting in brutal scenes against the backdrop of Kyiv buildings destroyed by the evil Putin, attracting this team of very expensive Vogue photographers and his dearest wife. Well, for my beloved (already in the mood in the evening) home video on smart - an appeal to the nation about the results of the day after the leader of the nation passed the next two lanes of the Colombian potion.

True, the recent capture by naval cyborgs of the leader of the nation from the 73rd Special Marine Operations Center of the Naval Forces of Ukraine of the Kinburn Spit for some reason was not reflected in the glorious video chronicle of the victories of Ukrainian weapons. Maybe because of the death of the cameraman while shooting on location, maybe because the victory this time turned out to be virtual, maybe for some other reason, I don’t know. And what, in fact, is the difference, which commander-in-chief - such victories.

I will immediately answer the question, will the failed director go for a second term? It will, of course it will! Only this period will be in the zone, somewhere in the vicinity of Mari El, and only if before that the Unshaven Clown is not hung upside down by his own henchmen on the first tree that comes across for his "great achievements" in the military and civilian fields. It is strange that such issues are of concern to Ukrainian society at all, although given the level of brainwashing, this is not even surprising. After all, the leader of the Kyiv junta has already fulfilled one of his election promises, and even before the promised time - Ukraine has already entered NATO, and not with one foot, as someone here had time to think, but with two ... S-300 anti-aircraft missiles. There was a lot of noise, someone was already falling asleep with the thought of the 5th article of the NATO charter, and woke up on the newsthat at the site of the emergency, fragments of not a Russian missile, but a Ukrainian one were found, as a result of which even the 4th article of the NATO charter could not be activated. True, this did not change anything - Russia was still blamed. Zelensky himself could not believe this news for the longest time, proving to everyone that the rocket, by definition, could not be Ukrainian, even Grandpa Joe had to personally fix his brains, they say, you already got everyone here - listen to what they tell you, and don’t blather without commands.

Screaming goats


Epigraph: "War is too serious a matter to be entrusted to the military" (Charles Maurice de Talleyrand).

But let's get back from the everyday life of the Ukrainian Pinochet and the last hope of the democratic world to the battlefields of the country of yellow-blaky benches. Recently, information surfaced that brave guys from the 101st Airborne Division of the United States, specially for this purpose, deployed by Grandpa Joe from Fort Campbell (Kentucky, USA) across the ocean to Romania, could light up there. The division is famous, at one time it was noted in the Vietnam War (1965-1968), and in Afghanistan (Operation Anaconda 2002), and in the Persian Gulf War (Operation Desert Storm 1991), and in the invasion to Iraq (2003-2006). The emblem of an eagle with an open beak flaunts on the sleeve, hence the name "Screaming Eagles". The division consists of 4,7 thousand people, three airborne brigades, reinforced by three artillery divisions (one for each brigade), with an air wing consisting of 438 units of standard aircraft (88 fire support helicopters AN-64 "Apache", 109 reconnaissance helicopters OH-58A "Kiowa", 203 multi-purpose UH-60A "Black Hawk", 32 troop transport CH-47D "Chinook" and 6 electronic warfare helicopters EH-60A). The division belongs to the light airborne division, without heavy armored vehicles.

But you should not be afraid that these heroes will light up on the battlefields of the Square. Most of all, Grandpa Joe is afraid of personal contact with the second "weakest" army in the world. The flow of coffins covered with the Stars and Stripes flag is not at all part of his plans, especially on rumors that he is going, like Zelensky, to run for a second term (both of these characters have the main task so far - to at least live up to him, in the literal sense this word).

On the eve of all these events, in early February 2022, Grandpa Joe was already throwing his good fellows across the ocean. And he did it hastily, by planes (expensive, I must say, pleasure). Why he was in such a hurry, it became clear after a couple of weeks - in the early morning of February 24, along with the first Russian missiles that fell on the sleepy cities of Ukraine. Then (at the beginning of 2022) it was not possible to agree with the States. But even nine months later, they are not going to remove the noose from the throat of the Russian Federation, raising the stakes even higher, escalating the degree of conflict. Then, in early February, the elite of the American units of the Rapid Reaction Forces were transferred to Europe. The brigade of the 82nd All-American Airborne Division, having made an air forced march from Fort Bragg (North Carolina), then landed in Romania, the brigade of the 101st Airborne Assault Division from Fort Campbell (Kentucky) ended up in Poland in the same way , and the command and control of the 18th Airborne Corps, which includes both of these elite units, was also transferred by air from Fort Bragg (North Carolina) to Germany, where the headquarters was created, which currently exercises overall control of the ground operations of the Force rapid US deployment in Europe.

This is the most seasoned elite of the US Armed Forces, who went through a lot of wars and armed conflicts (something like our Pskov and Ryazan paratroopers of the 76th Guards Airborne Division and the 106th Guards Airborne Division), which, together with the 4th mechanized "ivy" infantry division, whose brigade of “iron horses” was transferred from Fort Carson (Colorado) to the Polish-Ukrainian border, is now trying to quickly solve the tasks that the command sets for them (what tasks I don’t know). The full deployment of the 101st Airborne Division in Romania should be the least of all viewed as Grandpa Joe's campaign stunt on the eve of the midterm congressional elections, for the simple reason that his voters don't really care what's going on in Europe, they care more about the price of a gallon of gasoline. in their homeland. This says even less about the desire of the Alzheimer's patient to invade Ukraine or take control of the situation in neighboring Moldova.

The grandfather may have a desire for this, but for this, the forces available in Europe are clearly not enough. Until recently, only one heavy armored brigade was constantly deployed there on a rotational basis, specifically the 1st Armored Brigade (ABCT - Armored Brigade Combat Team) of the 1st Infantry Division (1/1 ID) from Fort Riley (Kansas), known by the nickname “Devil Brigade” (“Devil Brigade”), numbering 80 units of “Abrams”, 15 units of 155-mm self-propelled guns Paladin, about 130 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, 500 tracked and 1500 wheeled vehicles and 3,8 thousand guys, their serving. She wandered around Europe, participating in some exercises, then in others (from Northern to Southern Europe, from Norway to Greece). With the beginning of the NWO, Grandpa Joe tripled his presence in Europe by adding two more similar heavy armored groups (ABST) to the already existing brigade - the 1st ABST of the 3rd Infantry Division (1/3 ID) ("Raider") from Fort Stewart (Georgia) and the 3rd ABST of the 4th Infantry Division (3/4 ID) (“Iron Brigade”) are the same “iron horses” from Fort Carson (Colorado) that I wrote about above.

1/3 ID was equipped with a heavy technique from storage warehouses in Germany, having received 90 Abrams, 15 Paladin self-propelled guns, 150 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles and about 1000 wheeled and tracked vehicles, while the brigade staff consisted of the same 3,8 thousand people. And equipment and people of 3 / 4ID were transferred to Europe by sea - 90 Abrams tanks, 15 Paladins 155-mm self-propelled howitzers, 150 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs), 500 tracked and 600 wheeled vehicles, along with 4 thousand service people. In total, in Europe, at the moment, Grandpa Joe has concentrated about 260 Abrams tanks, 45 Paladin self-propelled guns, not counting other AFVs and vehicles. While they are smeared with a thin layer across Poland, Germany, Lithuania and Romania. But if desired, and having a single command in the person of the forward headquarters "M" of the US Army Corps in Poznan, it is not so difficult to assemble them into a single whole. What the Alzheimer's patient will do with this armored fist, it is not clear whether he will go head-on with him to Belarus or surround the Kaliningrad region, no one knows yet, but to maintain large-scale databases on the territory of Ukraine with the second "weakest" army of the world of these forces clearly not enough. Yes, and there are no such fools in the States, because even the most extinguished of them understand that in this case the war will not work, Russia will immediately get a nuclear club, after which life in Europe will lose its charm for a couple of hundred years.

The situation is similar with the “screaming eagles” transferred to Romania. Yes, they have a lot of helicopters, there are three divisions of towed artillery, but there is absolutely no heavy armor - this is air "light infantry with a motor." They will not break into Ukraine with their turntables against the Russian layered air defense integrated into a single network, in terms of suicidality, this is the same as throwing a bare saber against tanks. There are no such fools in the Pentagon (and fools from the Armed Forces of Ukraine definitely have nothing to do with the command of the US 101st Airborne Division), and even if such fools were found, then BC and kerosene would only be enough for them for a couple of hours of battle, and what to do further without replenishment of these stocks, no one has yet come up with. And therefore, the task of the “screaming eagles” is not to storm Perekop or any other part of the former Ukrainian SSR, but to try to create a threat to our peacekeeping contingent in Transnistria and the artillery depots available there (the largest in Europe, by the way), and with this threat we have something Must do. But after the surrender of Kherson, this task moved from a series of "intractable" to a series of "unsolvable". That is why I say that the war in Ukraine is only gaining momentum, no one is going to get out of it and will not allow us (even with the preservation of face, even with the loss of it). Grandpa Joe is just upping the ante and this will continue for at least two more years until the end of his term. And I don't know what to do with it.

This is where the report ends. Your Mr. Z

      And do not be embarrassed that the hostilities are being conducted in Ukraine, and not in Russia

      And it really bothers me too.
      Isn't Kherson, Zaporozhye regions, DPR and DPR not Russia?
      Are they not Russia yet or not Russia anymore?
      On what Ukrainian territory are hostilities now taking place?
      Author. It is necessary to be more careful with the Kemsky volosts.

    What is behind the transfer of the elite American troops to Romania.
    "Who owns the Heartland - he owns the world" (c).

    Whoever owns Romania owns Dracula's castle, millions of Romanian gypsies and a sea of ​​hominy.

    This says even less about the desire of the Alzheimer's patient to invade Ukraine or take control of the situation in neighboring Moldova.

    Moldova is an independent country, therefore absolutely nothing depends on it and on the control on it; at this time, "Sandals" reign there, which, anyway, catch the desires of their owners for one or two.

    In confrontation with the entire West, Russia has no chance. Nobody is afraid of our army anymore. It is necessary to scare them strongly, to wet pants. I'm talking about the only remaining chance - nuclear weapons. For starters, let it be Western Ukraine and be sure to Fr. Serpentine. This is next to the jackal - Romania, and plus it will block the passage between the mainland and the island to Odessa with a radiation zone, close the entrance to the mouth of the Danube. In Western Ukraine, these may be mercenary training centers, transport hubs, tunnels, energy hubs.
    The use of nuclear weapons (TNW) will demonstrate Russia's determination to go all the way and drastically limit everyone's desire to fight.

    (Wise) Having applied the first nuclear weapons, we will sign our own verdict and worldwide condemnation and further destruction by global forces, even our closest friend will turn away. According to this, nuclear weapons, only as a blow of the last opportunity. According to the article, a lot can be described with jokes, but the accumulation of US strike elite forces near the borders of Ukraine already looks like intentions are no longer joking. These are already the intentions of politics for military influence and military coercion with weapons of Russia to retreat and surrender positions. It's not time to put nuclear strategic warheads on alert, with such unambiguous fancies ...

    Yes, the West is pulling troops to the border with Ukraine. But, I don’t understand why the conclusion was made that this is to escalate the situation in Transnistria. For a moment, this is a direct military clash between Russia and the West.
    I assume that these are future peacekeeping forces.
    Putin: Step back from Ukraine or we will hang it on you, the West, on your freezing and hungry neck.
    West: Okay, hang up.
    Vladimir Putin: Shoigu, destroy the entire energy system of Ukraine.
    West: In connection with banditry and looting in Ukraine, we ask the UN Security Council to bring in peacekeepers.
    USA: Yes. France: Yes. England: Yes. China: Yes. Russia: "For".
