Pentagon spokesman: There are no troop movements requiring our immediate response in Eastern Europe

22

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said that "the military department is concerned about the security situation in Eastern Europe." According to John Kirby, today the US Department of Defense does not exclude the transfer of an additional American contingent "to the eastern borders of NATO to help the allies to strengthen their positions."


Kirby added that the US contingent could be sent to Eastern Europe "in the event of a Russian military invasion of Ukraine, and in the event that one of the NATO allies asks about it." The official representative of the State Department emphasized that it is about the "NATO allies". In other words, if a request comes from, for example, Ukraine itself, the United States will not consider it. In reporting this, Kirby referred to US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.

Kirby:

So far, there are no requests from the allies. There are also no troop movements that I could speak of that would require our immediate response in Eastern Europe.

According to a spokesman for the US Department of Defense, the United States is "watching the situation on the border between Russia and Ukraine." When asked to elaborate, he stated that "he cannot disclose details from the intelligence reports."

Commenting on John Kirby's statement, military experts in Ukraine expressed differing opinions. Some are confident that the United States "will definitely help in a difficult situation." Others urged to listen carefully to what Kirby said - if they help, then only NATO members. " There are also those who recalled historical component: if it was a big war, then the States decisively entered into business, usually at the end, in order to also try on the laurels of the winner:

Therefore, if a big war breaks out in Europe, the United States will wait until the sides exhaust each other, and then enter the war on the side that is closer to victory.

        Well, the Poles will go to fight for Ukraine, and the Americans will kick them from behind, and the unwilling ones will get a bullet in the forehead.

            On the forehead, this is if they do not go on kicks in front, but they decide to run back. The Americans themselves are not going to fight, but as a detachment for the Poles - it is quite possible for yourself.

    There are those who recalled the historical component: if it was about a big war

    What "big war" are they talking about?
    China to land troops on Normandy beaches?

    But we settled well - we did not move anywhere and the troops did not gather, they themselves inflated the press and then hysteria, threw sanctions for free and report that they scared zero and the threat passed, but later they admit that there were no threats, but the job was done, their troops are standing and have increased, the rent is imposed, they are bent over. Profit.

      They are pouring into the ears of those "suffering" who believe in their impunity and in the fact that in the event of a cut with Russia, mattresses will rush to die in batches because these same "suffering" voluntarily asked for an armor-piercing enema.
      Moreover, they pour it openly and without hints - they say there is no reason, we do not see the movements of troops. yes

        It's fun that from Russia all "rush to perish in batches." War is just as cool. Mmm...
        And most importantly, it is pleasant to comment on it on the sites, and not to sit in the trench ourselves. Real militant leavened patriotism.

    Yes? But what about 100 thousand + on the border of the Independent, exhausted from years of unequal war with Russia? belay

    Another thought is visible: the amers seem to be completely tired of this land and they strongly offer Russia: "Well, take it, take it!" And the Americans will throw off this suitcase without a handle and once again point the world to aggressive Russia, "the worst enemy of democracy."
