by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
After the election, I stated that Obama would stop at nothing in trying to start World War III. Conversely, Putin has been a leader that has demonstrated amazing restraint as Obama and his henchman have done the following in order to try and provoke Russia into a war.
Falsely accusing, with no proof, that the Russians hacked the 2016 election.
Subsequently expelling 35 Russian diplomats based on no proof of wrongdoing.
The suspected CIA assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey.
The suspected CIA take down of the Russian military plane.
Illegally employing sanctions against Russia with no proof of wrong doing.
Everyone of these actions is reason enough to provoke Putin to launch a preemptive strike and his is only the first course of this meal.
Obama Is No Longer Provoking, He’s Ready to Act
This is not a drill, this is not a military exercise. This is not even a military snap exercise where a war game/drill turns into a military attack against an enemy. What am I speaking about? NATO, including the United States, is amassing significant numbers of combat troops, mechanized armor and the requisite support personnel needed to sustain a combat operation.
If an adversary cannot be provoked into fighting back, the simplest answer is to attack them with extreme prejudice, and this is exactly what Obama appears to be doing as he said on December 29th, in relation to his unfounded accusations of Russian hacking, he is taking “retaliatory actions” against Russia.
The previous Obama provocations aside, things have gone from bad to worse.
As reported by Donbass International News Agency:
The NATO war preparation against Russia, ‘Operation Atlantic Resolve’, is in full swing. 2,000 US tanks will be sent in coming days from Germany to Eastern Europe, and 1,600 US tanks is deployed to storage facilities in the Netherlands. At the same time, NATO countries are sending thousands of soldiers in to Russian borders.
According to US Army Europe, 4,000 troops and 2,000 tanks will arrive in three US transport ships to Germany next weekend. From Bremerhaven, US troops and huge amount of military material, will be transported to Poland and other countries in Central and Eastern Europe.
USA is sending to Russian borders 3rd Brigade of the 4th Infantry Division. Overall, more than 2,500 pieces of cargo are shipped to Germany, where those will be unloaded in the period January 6-8. US military material and troops will continue to Poland by rail and military convoy’s. Massive US military deployment should be ready by January 20.”
Even though NATO is clearly preparing for war against Russia, Ben Hodges, the US European military commander accused Russia of being the ones preparing for war. Hodges listed the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the illegal annexation of the Crimea as the two reasons why the US is concerned. Obama needs to speak to his theater commanders more frequently as they cannot even get on the same page with regard to their reasons for war. Obama is only speaking directly to a hacked election for the reason, while Hodges blames geopolitical events.
For those who are willing to dig a little deeper, there is more. Three weeks ago, Russia Today reported the following:
“A total of 1,600 vehicles are due to be stored at a six-warehouse complex in the southeastern village of Eygelshoven, near the Belgian and German borders. The Eygelshoven facility was originally opened in 1985 during the Cold War, when it was used by US troops to practice drills in case of a possible Soviet attack….Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz announced that 4,000 US troops would be deployed to the western town of Zagan in January. And back in November, the US military sent over 600 containers of ammunition to Germany, the largest single shipment in more than 20 years.”
