The Pentagon has designated units ready to be sent to Eastern Europe due to the situation in Ukraine

54

On Monday, the US Department of Defense announced that up to 8500 troops have been ordered to prepare to deploy either alongside NATO forces or as a unilateral response. As Pentagon spokesman John Kirby noted, all units preparing for dispatch have the necessary logistics, medical and aviation support. The Pentagon has designated units ready to be sent to Eastern Europe due to the situation in Ukraine.


Units ready to deploy to Eastern Europe include the 82nd Airborne Division from Fort Bragg in North Carolina, the 101st Airborne Division from Fort Campbell in Kentucky, and the 4th Infantry Division from Fort Carson. in Colorado. Also on high alert are troops at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, Robins Air Force Base in Georgia.

The US 82nd Airborne Division includes a rapid response force that was recently used to secure evacuations at Kabul Airport in Afghanistan. Then the American paratroopers were quickly deployed to Afghanistan and provided protection for the withdrawal of troops and the evacuation of some Afghan citizens from the Kabul airport.

Many units were periodically sent to Europe as part of the rotation. For example, in 2017, the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division sent 3500 troops to Europe, 87 tanks and 144 Bradley fighting vehicles. It was the largest deployment of troops since the collapse of the Soviet Union. The division's servicemen were in Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Romania and Bulgaria.

At the same time, Kirby did not elaborate more specifically on the units that are preparing to move to the east of Europe. He allowed the possibility of an additional order for other units, which are based both in the United States and at American military bases outside the country.

        "quilt" is a slang term for a fuselage defect (swelling of the skin in sectors) resulting from long-term operation of the aircraft under alternating loads (a lot of take-off and landing cycles were made). "corrugation" usually occurs due to the fact that the board was "attached" on landing on the runway (landing with an overload of 4g, for example). Or strong "fatigue" of the load-bearing structure from old age and the fuselage "floated" in shape - inelastic and irreversible deformations have already begun.

        The "quilt" defect is clearly visible in the upper right corner of the photo in the article.

    This is already serious, instead of reducing US troops in Europe, there is an increase. Such military transfers, undisguised preparations for the beginning of the hot phase of the Third World War, are not good.

      It has long been clear that the game is one-sided. With whom to talk there, the collective West (NATO) "turned on the fool" and will not listen to anything. The UN has become a useless, formal organization that decides nothing.

      That's right, but it's time not only for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but also for the Ministry of Defense to somehow respond.

      It's time to show the promised military and military-technical responses. If we again silently mourn (and according to Lavrov, the answer received on the main points is negative), then they will not reckon with us in the future at all.

      Our Foreign Ministry has already reacted, puzzled the Americans with an ultimatum! Apparently, they were very scared that transport workers were frequenting Kiev. Ultimatums cannot solve the problem!
      There was parity with NATO and the USA when it was opposed by the strong USSR and the Warsaw Pact. Much has changed since then - the USSR has sunk into oblivion, and our allies have switched sides. hi

We just need to gather a larger flock and put an end to the enraged bear. And the fact that Russia also has a vigorous bomb, how come "they won't use it. This is the end of everyone."

      Two options are available:
      1) Medvedev was released to create a "smoke screen of peace",
      covering intensive preparations for war.
      2) Someone from Putin's entourage explained to him what an economic collapse
      will happen in Russia even in the most optimistic and victorious course of the war.
      And then the words of Medvedev - pressing the brake.

      I think that Putin and Shoigu are silent because they want to first discuss the current situation with the President of China (his meeting with Putin is to take place on February 4). Depending on what agreements are reached, appropriate statements and decisions will be made to the US and NATO.

      In the meantime, in order to somehow fill the vacuum, they gave the floor to Medvedev, formally his position is high, but in essence it does not decide anything.

    Once again, show the "allies" (especially the Balts and Poles) that if something happens, we will not leave you and will come to the rescue. True, when the "allies" fled from Afghanistan, they were not even warned about this. They are not going to fight for Ukraine, which has been officially announced more than once, but Russia really wants to tickle its nerves. Ukraine as a pretext for the introduction of additional forces. If it were not for Ukraine, they would come up with something else.

    200 trains with military equipment and personnel are going to Belarus. C400s are transferred there from the Far East and fighter aircraft. From the southern border of Belarus to Kiev 90 km. All 5 airfields around Kiev will become a no-fly zone at the time such an order is given. How will the 82nd Airborne Division and the 101st Airborne Airborne Forces land? By parachute? Well let yourself jump on the western bank of the Dnieper. Tank columns and infantry of the RF Armed Forces will already be moving along the eastern coast. The boiler for the APU will be the scale of the Second World War. Pincers are closed along the Dnieper and the columns of prisoners will be returned to Ukraine through the Kiev bridges. This is the end of the 3rd reincarnation of the Kaiser project Ukraine. Does Joe Biden need it? Without his command, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will not go to the Donbass and Crimea, which means there will be no Russian invasion. Everyone will sit on the priest exactly and scare each other.

    You might think that this pack will go to deal with the Russians? They were able to show their coolness only to unarmed natives in Grenada. Moreover, no one is going to chase them across the fields with a "broom". They know this, therefore, they will puff out their cheeks away from the fields of possible battles.

      8500 is not for a war with Russia (for a war with the Russian Federation this is a negligible figure), it's just a spit in the face of Russia and Putin personally.
      In his address, Putin demanded that NATO withdraw its troops from the countries of Eastern Europe to the line before 1997, so the United States and NATO replied that they would not only not withdraw, but also increase the number of their troops in the countries bordering Russia.

      Now it is important to make the right response steps.
