Russia warns US may force its military hand

Potential US military buildup near Russia’s borders may force the Russian military to respond in kind by reinforcing its frontier presence, says a Russian military official.

Army General Yury Yakubov, a coordinator from the Russian Defense Ministry’s general inspectors directorate, was responding to reports that the United States Department of Defense is planning to concentrate US heavy military hardware near Russian borders.

“If US heavy hardware including tanks, artillery systems, or other fighting vehicles does appear in some Eastern European and Baltic countries, this would mark the Pentagon and NATO’s most aggressive step since the Cold War time of the past century,” he said on Monday.

“And Russia won’t have anything else to do but bolster its forces and resources on the Western strategic theater of operations,” the official noted.

Yakubov said the response would be initialized by the reinforcement the forces along Russia’s western border.

The comments came amid continued high tensions between Russia and the US-led Western military alliance of NATO over the crisis in Ukraine, which the West accuses Moscow of having a hand in. Russia denies the allegations.

The New York Times reported on Saturday that the Pentagon was ready to store heavy military equipment in East Europe to face a possible “Russian aggression” in the wake of the crisis in Ukraine.

The weaponry, which includes battle tanks and infantry fighting vehicles, was enough for as many as 5,000 American troops, the daily wrote.

      “US government” does not exist. You must be refering to the rogue mafia of the District of Columbia. They serve another master . . . a master of pure evil. The people have been duped and poisoned by these thugs. The US Republic does not exist any more but there are patriots who intend to restore the US Republic and the righteous, moral principles it was founded upon.

    Odd how the Russian soldiers virtually wear the same uniforms as the US troops. They look exhausted with all of the snap drills. Putie better let these guys rest up before he makes any moves. A little R & R in Crimea perhaps?

    There are some key words and phrases that we must translate here:

    “…reinforcing its frontier presence…” and
    “…bolster its forces and resources on the Western strategic theater”

    These places could mean Mexico and the Southern California Coast, both of which have been tested to be vulnerable. The Russians have already infiltrated New York.

    This is key information that the Pentagon needs to take to heart. A frontier presence and a Western strategic theater are easily understood to mean places that Russia has not sent forces and where Americans have not known them to be before.

    It could be the reason that the feds have sent arsenal and guard to Texas and other places.
