Is there a war going on in Europe somewhere ? or perhaps there’s one that’s about to start ? The Daily-yet to be potty trained,blustering Home Counties Mortgage paying consumerist- Mail reports the following.
Mr Cameron spoke to US President Barack Obama, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian PM Mario Renzi to ‘confirm their intention to adopt new measures against Russia,’ Paris said.
In an escalation of tensions with Russia, British ministers unveiled details of what they are calling Exercise Black Eagle, a UK-led training exercise.
At least 1,350 personnel and more than 350 armoured and other vehicles will be sent to Poland in October, but the Ministry of Defence refused to give details of where the exercise would take place.
Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said it would be the largest British commitment to the region since 2008.
The UK has already deployed RAF Typhoon jets to the Nato Baltic Air Policing mission.
And at the end of light infantry troops from 1st Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment will take part in Exercise Sabre Junction in Poland, a US-led exercise involving 16 Nato and partner nation.
Last week it emerged General Philip Breedlove, Nato’s top commander in Europe, had drawn up plans to create a new beefed-up HQ in Poland to allow for a swift response to any new threat from Russia.
Speaking on a visit to Warsaw, Mr Fallon said that it was important to underline Nato’s commitment to the collective security of its members at a time of heightened tensions in the region.
‘It is right that Nato members and partners demonstrate our commitment to the collective security of our allies in Eastern Europe,’ he said.
‘In particular, the commitment of a battle group to Exercise Black Eagle shows our sustained and substantial support to Nato’s eastern border.’
And just when you thought that only sovereign nation states were the only entities that could be described as having ” borders ” ; up pops a US-led military alliance ( formed in the 1940’s to prepare for an entirely bogus war that was never going to take place ) that has an ” eastern border ” ! Logically ,it is surely Turkey that constitutes NATO’s eastern border or is it Libya or Iraq or Afghanistan ? Without an actual enemy let alone any real war to fight ,the supremely deranged and psychotic US has charged all over the planet these past 65 years engendering a multiplicity of armed conflicts they then could intervene and resolve in their deity-ordained mission-role as peacekeepers. Which to the rest of mankind of course strikes one as criminally insane.If the US and its NATO satrapies were a person then they would have been sectioned under mental health legislation as a danger to others. ” Exercise Black Eagle ” , really ? British troops are going to die in a nuclear inferno asserting the rights of knuckle-dragging fascist turnip-chuckers to murder ethnic Russians. really ?
