NATO is recommitting itself to fomenting a nuclear war with Russia, in order to save… wait, I forget.
Is it to save the gays?
Oh no, wait, I’m remembering now: it’s to protect border integrity in the Ukraine, and to save ISIS in Syria, so that that country can be freed from its brutal dictator Assad and finally have democracy and human rights.
Saving the gays is just an added benefit.
The commander of NATO and US forces in Europe has called for yet more armored vehicles and troops to be deployed on the continent to counter what he calls “a resurgent Russia.”
Testifying before a Senate appropriations subcommittee on Tuesday, General Curtis M. Scaparrotti, head of United States European Command (EUCOM) – in charge of all US forces in Europe, as well as NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander – accused Russia of threatening regional and global security.
“Today we face the most dynamic European strategic environment in recent history,” he said in his testimony. “In the east, a resurgent Russia had turned from partner to antagonist as it seeks to undermine the Western-led international order and reassert itself as a global power.”
“Accordingly, we are adjusting our plans, our posture, our readiness to remain relevant to combat the threats we face,” he added. “In short, we are returning to our historic role as a war fighting command.”

That’s that, I guess.
Two American combat brigades are permanently stationed in Europe: the 2nd Cavalry Regiment in Germany and the 173rd Airborne in Italy, which make up around 10,000 of the 60,000-strong American troop presence in Europe. Scaparrotti says more troops are needed – specifically more armored and infantry divisions to counter Russia’s western flank, as well “enablers” like engineers, aviation and fire support staff for the European Reassurance Initiative.
“Russia’s posture is not a light force, it’s a heavy force,” he continued.
“In order to have the posture that is both credible and of the right composition, we need more armored forces… to make sure that we do have a force of enough size that enables us to deter Russia.”
“Five or six years ago, we weren’t concerned about being ready [to fight] today,” Scaparrotti added. “That has changed.”
Just to be clear here, this is an American General talking openly about preparing to fight a war with Russia.
I just want everyone to be clear that that is what is happening here.
During the Senate hearing, Scaparrotti also called for more funding to improve local capabilities for infrastructure capable of moving and housing troops.
The European Reassurance Initiative was launched in 2014 in the wake of the political crisis in Ukraine and the perceived Russian intervention there, leading to the most vocal members of NATO – Poland and the Baltic states – claiming that they would be Moscow’s next target.
Sorry, but these people are a bunch of whiny fucking babies.
Also, not sorry.
“Estonian Nationalist” poses with foreign flag and foreign dyke soldier in front of foreign military equipment.
Go ahead and spam the comments section with how much better the EU and NATO are than Russia, Estonians.
I want you to do that, like you always do.
I want people to see that this is what you actually believe: you would rather be flooded with Moslems and have man-on-man anal sex taught to your 5-year-old children than get over your daddy issues with Papa Russia.
A small price to pay for avoiding a made-up potential invasion by Russia.
Also a small price.
Also a small price.
Another small price.
A very small price.
No big deal.
A tiny price to pay.
Bothing to worry about. The real threat is an imaginary invasion by Russia which could happen at any moment for no reason – the Americans told me so!
If you people actually cared about your own country – or Western civilization as a whole – you could slow this.
But you don’t.
(Note: I know some Poles and Baltic people do – but the overwhelming majority prefer to indulge in a bizarre fantasy world, and go ahead and help ruin the world in order to support that fantasy.)
This prompted leading members of the alliance to agree on troop deployments. In March, 800 British soldiers began arriving in Estonia, while Germany sent troops and tanks to Lithuania. Earlier in April, 1,350 NATO soldiers arrived in northeastern Poland in line with the planned buildup.
Russia has consistently criticized the NATO buildup on its doorstep, describing it as a threat to regional security.
“We deplore that deployment, for it raises tensions in Europe along the border between NATO and Russia. Russia doesn’t pose any threat to Estonia nor any other NATO member state,” Russian Ambassador to the UK Alexander Yakovenko recently told the Daily Mail.
There is absolutely zero reason Russia would randomly invade Estonia.
The only reason they took action in the Ukraine is because there was a violent western-backed coup to overthrow the elected government, and there were ethnic Russians living in entire parts of the country who didn’t want to be subjected to the oppressive coup government which was burning people alive.
Plus, I mean, Crimea was a part of Russia for hundreds of years – long before the establishment of the fake country of “The Ukraine.”
But if the US/NATO war machine does provoke a war with Russia, the Baltics and Poland are going to be the first ones to get rolled on. Even if Russia ultimately loses the war, the Baltics and Poland (as well as the Ukraine) are going to get wholly rekt.
So you’d think they’d be against this escalation.
They invite the US/NATO machine to station troops within their borders.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Prime Minister Taavi Roivas of Estonia. They is BFF.
So, I guess we’re gonna have a nuclear war with Russia.
I distinctly recall voting against this.
However, the fact that I voted at all apparently means it is my fault.
That is the trouble with democracy, you see. The people have 0% influence on what the government does, yet they are held 100% responsible.
Because: “you voted, goyim.”
I’m still #TeamPutin.
