Another shipload of America military hardware has arrived at the German port of Bremerhaven to reinforce US commitment to its allies against the perceived Russian threat, and ensure Europe remains “whole, free, prosperous, and at peace.”

The delivery of US Abrams tanks, Paladin artillery and Bradley fighting vehicles mark a new phase of Operation Atlantic Resolve. Over the last few days 2,800 pieces of military hardware and 4,000 troops have arrived at the port.

The delivery marks a new phase of continuous American presence in Europe which will now be conducted on a nine-month rotational basis.

“This is a methodical effort on the part of the Allies to go and say to all those, who would threaten peace and security in Europe, to say that no, we are not going to allow that,” US Air Force Lieutenant General Timothy M. Ray declared. “Let me be clear: This is one part of our efforts to deter Russian aggression, ensure the territorial integrity of our allies and maintain a Europe that is whole, free, prosperous, and at peace.”

“What is significant about this deployment is this brigade combat team is bringing all of their equipment from the States,” added Deputy Commanding General of the US Army Europe, Major Tim McGuire, who explained the deployment enables the US Army to build “additional readiness” and as well as boost combat preparedness of its NATO allies.

The new forces will first be moved to Poland to participate in military drills at the end of the month, before being deployed across seven countries, including the Baltic states, Bulgaria, Romania and Germany. A headquarters unit will be stationed in Germany.

As part of the new force, the US Army will also dispatch about 50 Black Hawk and 10 CH-47 Chinook helicopters along with around 1,800 personnel, and a separate aviation battalion with 400 troops and 24 Apache helicopters.

In addition to American troops going to Poland, Germany, Canada and Britain are also contributing to the significant NATO forces buildup in eastern Europe and are sending battalions of up to 1,000 troops each to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Atlantic Resolve is perceived by Washington as a demonstration of continued US commitment to the collective security of Europe which began in April 2014, following the Crimean referendum to split from the coup-stricken Ukraine and join Russia.

The ongoing strategy is promulgated by conducting continuous, enhanced multinational training and security cooperation activities with US and NATO partners in eastern Europe. Since the Operation began, these military exercises have been conducted in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary.

Russia has long condemned NATO’s activities along its borders as hostile and potentially threatening national security. Moscow has responded by stationing its most modern weaponry and armaments on its western borders, including the enclave region of Kaliningrad, and staging large-scale military drills on home soil.

    ALL WARS ARE…………. BANKSTER WARS. :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea:

    US TROUPES & TANKS shipped to Russian border.

    Tsk…tsk…tsk…….those…… BANKSTERS $$$$$!!!££…..WE HAVE BEEN “here” BEFORE.

    (Full) In the Shadow of Hermes by Jüri Lina (2009)

    1905 The failed COUP in RUSSIA was FINANCED from the US by JACOB SCHIFF………
    according to the video linked above.
    1900 – 1902 around 10,000 “international” (PROXIES?) revolutionaries were trained in the US, financed in whole or in part by Jacob Schiff.

    1917 Leiba Bronstein aka TROTSKY arrived in New York having travelled 1st class from Barcelona.
    He booked into the Hotel Astor but later moved into a luxury residence in Vyse Avenue in the Bronx and a chauffeur driven limousine was placed as his disposal …..ALL COURTESY of Jacob Schiff.

    @ 12:36…… Statue of Liberty was a gift from French freemasons to the freemasons of New York.
    The statue is the BABYLONIAN EMPRESS Semiramis, the PATRON SAINT of the illuminati.
    In her “rite” hand she carries a TORCH and in her left (left indicating SINISTER) she carries the Declaration of Independence.
    To the freemasons the TORCH implies CONTROL & MANIPULATION.

    @15:40…… $50 MILLION was invested in the Russian “revolution” of 1905.
    International CAPITALism was behind the coup.
    Whilst Jacob Schiff financially supported the coup he ENSURED NO BANKS WOULD LEND to RUSSIA.

    @ 25:14 ……1916 In the spring Jacob Schiff and others gifted £1 million to the Provisional Government of Russia.
    Wall Street banker Paul Warburg became Trotsky’s political PATRON.

    @ 27:00…..The real history of the United States…….

    @ 9:00……The following can be read in “The Secret Initiation into the 33rd Degree”
    “Freemasonry is nothing more and nothing less than REVOLUTION in action, ceaselessly
    waging CONSPIRACY”.

    During the 20th Century the….. “FREEMASONS ” & accompLICEs….GENOCIDED 147 MILLION RUSSIANS….. under the EUPHEMISTIC label of COMMUNISM.

    AND….GENOCIDED…140 MILLION CHINESE…using the same label.


    President Putin appears to see SOVEREIGNTY as an integral part of Man-KINDS future.

    The war is Imho ………Individual & National SOVEREIGNTY …versus……BANKSTER SLAVERY.

    HIS-story is REPEATING itsELF.

    BIG Mistake to go poking the Russian Bear in the eye and up the ass on it’s own soil (HUGE MISTAKE in fact) !!! I’d say that both NATO AND the U.S. military are about to have a LOT of crispy Critters for soldiers (not to mention Citizen CASUALTIES to contend with and a Hell of a lot of vaporized infrastructure as well) VERY Soon if they aren’t VERY Careful !!!
