US sends fresh tanks, planes, troops to Europe as 'message' to Moscow

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 | Tag Cloud Tags: ,

(Worthy News) - The United States has raised the stakes in staring down an increasingly hostile Kremlin, sending another wave of tanks, planes and troops to reinforce a nervous Europe.

At the weekend, the United States air force also declared it will be sending another 12 A-10 Thunderbolt II ground attack planes to reinforce NATO’s Operation Atlantic Resolve — an ongoing show of force aimed at deterring mounting Russian hostility towards Ukraine and East European states.

The largest airborne troop deployment drills since the Cold War has also kicked off this week, involving 5000 soldiers from 11 NATO nations. The four-week ‘simultaneous multinational airborne operation’ Swift Response 15 will see war-games taking place across Germany, Italy, Bulgaria and Romania.

The exercises come as new main battle tanks, howitzer artillery and armoured reconnaissance vehicles of a US Marine Corps Combined Arms Company arrive in Bulgaria to bolster the existing unit of 260 troops based there. [ Source ]

  1. I say if anyone breaths wrong we bomb Iran and we keep bombing Iran until everyone gets the message. Why bomb Iran over something Russia is doing? Why not? Be a good warm up for our boys and its not like Iran don't deserve it.
