US, NATO vs. Russia War Will Be The End Of Humanity
By Polina Tikhonova on November 1, 2015 in Politics, Russia
The U.S. and its allies’ move to deploy a significant number of troops
and heavy military equipment onto Russia’s borders indicates that the
West is preparing for a war with Russia, according to an American
political analyst and journalist.
Russia Nuclear US
“They [Washington and its allies] are clearly preparing to fight a war
with Russia, and they are not only preparing to fight it at the old
battle lines, but at Russia’s door, while they talk about Russia
provoking,” Don DeBar, the political analyst, said during an interview
with Press TV on Thursday.
The analyst’s comments come after the U.S. announced plans to deploy
4,000 troops close to Russia’s borders while Russia conducts its
military operations in Syria, bombing U.S.-backed rebels.
On Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that some 4,000 NATO
combat troops will be stationed in countries bordering Russia. In Poland
and the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, there will be
roughly 800 to 1,000 soldiers stationed amid the coldest tensions
between Moscow and Washington since the end of the Cold War. The move
has a high chance to escalate the risk of a war in Europe and a military
confrontation between the world’s two largest nuclear powers: the U.S.
According to The Wall Street Journal, U.S. officials familiar with the
deployment of the 4,000 NATO troops close to Russia’s borders say the
move is supposed to send Russian President Vladimir Putin a message that
NATO’s active presence of military forces is at his country’s door and
that NATO troops are watching his every move, ready to respond.
“It is a very bad sign, people do not generally place their army at your
door unless they plan to fight a war with you,” DeBar said.
NATO vs. Russia war will be the end of humanity
“The problem is that most people in the country here [the U.S.] have no
idea that this is going on,” DeBar noted. The analyst also added that
the American media intentionally ignores reports that “there is this
army deployed to Russia’s borders with material and manpower.” A war
involving NATO, the U.S. and Russia “would probably spell, if not the
end of humanity, the end of any possibility of a comfortable future for
humanity,” the analyst concluded.
The U.S. and its allies accuse Russia of bombing U.S.-backed rebels in
Syria, while Moscowdenies the accusations, claiming that the only
targets of its airstrikes are ISIS militants operating in Syria and
Iraq. There is also a high risk of China joining Russia against the U.S.
and its allies in the case of a military confrontation. As ValueWalk
reported on Wednesday citing American geostrategists, the U.S.
underestimates the power of a China-Russia alliance.
Sweden and Finland’s military team up to counter Putin’s threat
Another alarming report on Thursday indicates that two NATO-backed
European countries close to Russia’s borders are combining their
military efforts in order to counter the Russian threat in theregion. In
what is believed to be a yet another provocation, the Swedish government
announced on Thursday that it will create a joint naval battle group
with Finnish Defense Forces, as reported by Business Insider.
Both of the countries are eager to join NATO. Finland borders Russia to
its northeast, while Sweden has experienced what it’s like to have its
territory violated by Russian military. A Russian submarine was believed
to have been spotted in Swedish waters in October 2014.
The new task force, which is called the Swedish Finnish Naval Task Force
(SFNTG), will be a cost-effective way for two countries which aspire to
get NATOmembership to conduct joint military drills and response
operations in the Arctic and the surrounding regions. The SFNTG will
include troops trained to operate under the region’s extreme climate
conditions, as reported by Defense News. The force will also “conduct
sea surveillance, exercises and include combined units,” according to
the website. “It would share infrastructure and be able to transfer
operational control of units between the Swedish and Finnish navies.”
According to Swedish media, the new battle group will be interacting
with NATO units and the military forces of NATO countries, which
presents the additional risk of unleashing a war between NATO and Russia
since both Sweden and Finland aspire to join NATO. Sweden is also
reportedly in talks with Finland and Denmark to be able to station naval
units in the countries’ home ports during peacetime.
NATO is conducting its largest military drills in over a decade
Meanwhile, NATO is conducting its largest military exercises in more
than a decade, a move that is also seen as a provocation and at the same
time a response to Putin’s aggressive moves in Eastern Europe and Syria.
All four branches of the U.S. military areparticipating in the drills.
The drills, which are called the Trident Juncture 2015, include 36,000
personnel from more than 30 nations, including the U.S. The military
drills are taking place in Spain, Portugal and Italy but will also
include areas in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea and in
Germany, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium and Canada. The last time NATO
held military drills of that scale was in 2002.
Some 5,000 American troops from all branches of the U.S. armed forces
will take part in Trident Juncture 2015. The drills began on Oct. 19 and
will run through Nov. 6. NATO already completed the Command Post
Exercise drills on Oct. 16 in an attempt to beef up coordination and
cooperation among the Alliance’s military leaders.
“Exercises such as these help ensure the agility and readiness to
execute real-world missions with other nations at a moment’s notice and
as a complex and dynamic global environment may dictate,” said Air Force
spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Karns, according to Air Force Times.
“Trident Juncture 15 provides an opportunity to work with Allies and
partners while enhancing collective capabilities. At the same time, it
signals a strong and collective commitment to ensuringregional
The drills will also allow NATO and its allies to prepare for rapid
deployment of military troops to counter any crisis in or around Europe,
U.S. Ambassador and NATO Deputy Secretary-General Alexander Vershbow
said at the Trident Juncture’s opening ceremonies.
