US tanks arrive in Germany to help Nato defences | BBC News - 6 January 2017 |

The largest shipment of US brigades since the fall of the Soviet Union is arriving in northern Germany.

The first of the 87 tanks and 144 military vehicles were being unloaded in the port of Bremerhaven.

The equipment and 3,500 US troops are to be deployed along Nato's eastern frontier. The deployment aims to allay worries of potential Russian aggression in eastern Europe.

However, some fear the large number will exacerbate tensions with Moscow.

Leaders of the left-wing regional government of Brandenburg - one of the German states through which the American brigades will be transported over the next two weeks - have called for further talks with Russia.

The arrival of the equipment and troops marks the start of a new phase of the US's Operation Atlantic Resolve, which foresees the continuous presence of an American armoured brigade combat team in Europe on a nine-month rotational basis.

The new forces will gather first in Poland, then fan out across seven countries from Estonia to Bulgaria, while a headquarters unit will be stationed in Germany.

Coincidence? I think not ... PropOrNot and Steele MI6 Dodgy Dossier launched. Same date - Pentagon contingency long-term planning see Gen. Breedlove. Hard nosed anti-socialist/communist warmonger ...

Breedlove's 'Blitzkrieg scenario' which could escalate into a World War III scenario is part of NATO's summit agenda in Wales," Professor Michel Chossudovsky points out in a commentary on the upcoming NATO Summit in Wales. "In substance it is a 'copy and paste' of the draft Russian Aggression Prevention Act (RAPA) (in the U.S. Senate) which directs President Obama to initiate the militarization of Eastern Europe with a view to confronting Russia," Professor Chossudovsky writes.
