"Can push Kiev to the offensive in Donbass": Germany fears an increase in the US military presence in Europe

25

The Pentagon has confirmed plans to increase the military presence in Germany and the transfer of fifth generation fighters to Europe. At the same time, Germany fears that US plans will push Ukrainian radicals to start hostilities in Donbas.


The US Department of Defense confirmed the dispatch of an additional military contingent in the amount of 500 people to Germany. According to Washington, this will strengthen "the potential of the United States in all areas." The redeployment of the American military should take place this fall with their further deployment in German Wiesbaden.

According to US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, in this way the US will provide "defense and deterrence" in Europe. Although the head of the Pentagon did not explain whom the US was going to "contain", but here everything is clear even without it - Russia.

Also planned for the fall are the deployment of fifth-generation F-35 fighters of the US Air Force to Europe for permanent deployment, and not on a temporary basis. The number of aircraft is not named, but the US Congress has assured that it will be enough to "defend the sovereign territory."

It is emphasized that the build-up of US forces in Europe is aimed, among other things, at supporting "Kiev's positions in the confrontation with Moscow."

Meanwhile, in Germany itself, they fear that the announced strengthening of the United States in Europe against the background of statements about support for Ukraine may push Ukrainian radicals to resume hostilities in the Donbas.

    Whatever one may say, but the United States will not let Ukraine go to a peaceful state. They will by any means force them to go to the LDNR, they will promise support, create the appearance of a presence nearby, press and threaten. They need to plunge us into the conflict like air. Alas, this is all just a matter of time, and the nearest time.

          And you, hi ! Well, us now frighten, it will become more expensive for them. We are no longer the same as in the 90s of the last century. There is something to answer, and not only to answer, but also to distribute to all those in need as they want. wink

          I don't know about the rest, but they have nothing to scare us with.
          We have already abandoned the ISS. We will create our own station. Anti-missile. bully
          They threatened to refuse Visa and Master Card together with Swift.
          They began to smash the "fifth column" inside the country.
          Awareness of these facts, coupled with a clearly demonstrated desire by VVP to push all the Banders at once, led to Biden's request for a meeting. Not a month has passed, but here's how it came out! bully
          It is necessary to play for time for something.
          Ours, before the meeting on the normalization of relations, taking into account the boundless arrogance of the States and the complete lack of trust in them, will not withdraw troops from Ukraine, nor will they come to the Warming Summit. IMHO.
          And without China and Russia, this summit has no meaning.
          One shame for Biden. And solid zugzwang. hi

        What's the point of this meeting? Why is it necessary?
        How many times have already met, and the result is only worse.
        You are right, if only to play for time, either them or us ..

          Our answer has not yet been given. But I suppose there will be a meeting all the same. And a lot will depend on it. The agenda is extensive - from S. Korea to Afgan. Well, and of course what to do with unnecessary. And the most important thing is that we defend Donbass as it is now, not an inch back, otherwise the mericatos will regard us as weak.

        It can be assumed that the GDP will refer to the workload and thereby send amers along the way to the gays. I suppose, looking at this whole circus from my place in the stalls, it would be a positive decision to raise the image of VVP. But for the establishment of international relations - I'm not sure ... But the sanctions were imposed and they are imposed ... Isn't it time for Russia to send all the sanctions and those interested in smoothing the sharp corners of the people (individuals who receive profit in Russia and withdraw capital to "democratic" countries ) at the above address?

        The United States confirmed sending an additional 500 troops to Germany. According to Washington, this will strengthen "US potential in all spheres ".

        Well, if the potency is weak, then all sorts of poultices are temporary. These 500 mericans are like 500mg of sildenafil (Viagra) for the impotent man! yes And if he still has problems with the liver and the cardiovascular system, then there will be auditory, visual and psychomotor disorders (well, in general, like Bidon), not to mention that you can bend. repeat
        So, right, Germany is worried, she needs it? lol

        Germany fears the growth of the US military presence in Europe
        Not for nothing is a saying. "An unknown guest is worse than a Tatar" I have never met that someone from Europeans in the region of America, even the same naglichians (kindred spirits), but these are everywhere and everywhere, even the Germans do not feel comme il faut ...

      Whatever one may say, but the United States will not let go of Germany. All events in Europe, after the death of the USSR, revolve around Germany. The Anglo-Saxons were crazy about M. Gorbachev's decision to unite the FRG and the GDR, but they were careful not to say it out loud.

    Zaporozhye Cossacks were hired to serve everyone who paid. And they also did not hesitate to sell into slavery everyone who could be captured, including Russians, Ukrainians, and representatives of other peoples. Ukronatsiks are their "worthy" successors. They have been growing new ones for 30 years.
    There is no need to doubt that this evil spirits will never calm down.
    So, sooner or later, it will have to be at war with Bandera's Ukraine. Today, many regret not closing this topic in 2014.
    Even more, many will regret later that they did not do this in 2021.
    Metastases are spreading. The diagnosis is unambiguous. Surgery is inevitable.

      All the Cossacks were engaged in this. Forgot how Bolotnikov and others from the banks of the Volga to Zaporozhye fought on the side of the Poles? The Cossacks became obedient after being harshly repressed by the Romanovs.

    the strengthening of the United States in Europe against the backdrop of statements of support for Ukraine may push Ukrainian radicals to resume hostilities in Donbass.
    Those who in Germany have not yet forgotten how to think and analyze correctly assume a possible development of events. But Germany's policy does not depend on them. It was not in vain that Zelensky ran with the CNN film crew in his rear areas, which were presented as the front line, depicting what "danger" he was exposed to under the fire of imaginary snipers and asked for additional help on camera. No wonder the Foreign Minister shouts that they are protecting the whole of Europe and wonders why the American air defense systems are stationed in Poland and not in Ukraine ...

    Already on the countries bordering and located with Russia, about 40 American troops are concentrated. It doesn't even smell like "containment", but rather looks like the Cuban missile crisis.

    "Strengthening capacity in all areas", "ensuring the right of free navigation." So that's what it's called! And we slander the striped, thinking that they are hegemonic. And 4 lards to support democratic institutions in South America in 2021 - for the humanitarian unification of countries and the development of the rule of law. Interestingly, the Nobel Committee has already realized the humanitarian exclusivity of the United States?

    This is done so that Russia does not start an offensive, not Ukraine.

    The Americans are now facing the dilemma "How to make war for Ukraine and in the Donbass and how to save Ukraine after that." No matter how they turn, Russia was threatened and ships were sent to the Black Sea, but it does not work out.
    Now we have decided to negotiate in the hope of trying to put pressure on Russia.
    Regarding Europe, it is too late for them to fear and be indignant because they have been in front of the United States in the knee-elbow since 1945.
