The commander of U.S military forces in Europe told lawmakers Tuesday that he needs a larger combat force, including an armored division and increased naval power, to deter Russian military forces on the continent.
The general said he needs the “enablers of an armored division — a fires brigade, an engineer brigade, air defense — those kinds of systems in the numbers that I need there.”
Scaparrotti said he could also use an “additional naval component on rotation through Europe to deter specifically with respect to anti-submarine warfare,” an area Russia continues to modernize.
Scaparrotti said the “real trigger” was Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea.
You can read it for all the fake excuses these idiots make for instigating war with Russia.
You can read about US-NATO’s regime change in Ukraine.
You can read about the ongoing meddling of US-NATO in Ukraine.

And note this: “And secondly, within their doctrine, they have made the statement openly again that they see a use for nuclear tactical capabilities within what we would consider a conventional conflict, which is very alarming.”
Alarming? ALARMING? Do you know what this idiot just said here? I’ll help you: “How dare Russia not play fair, if we decide to have a ‘conventional conflict’ with them, and they use tactical nukes on us!”
Well dumb-ass Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti… maybe you ought to rethink putting on Russia’s border an increased armored division and naval power… which just increases Russia’s probable use of tactical nukes in case you decide to go… conventional. Ya thunk, stoo-pid?
I had really hoped that “The God Emperor” as the idiots call Trump, would live up to his election rhetoric. But we all knew better, right?
