America may send 50,000 troops to Eastern Europe
Today the White House is discussing sending anywhere up to 50 thousand or more troops to Eastern Europe, starting small and scaling up, to challenge Russia. Sources in Washington DC, some of whom seem to be repeating newspaper articles but others more in the know, from Arlington, Virginia, all agree that under discussion is a massive and immediate movement of American troops, “probably airborne and infantry”, to countries surrounding Russia. Two sources from Arlington suggest this is consistent with what estimates and threat response scenarios the Pentagon analysts have been asked to ‘wrap into easily understood presentations’.
“The armed forces of the nations of Donetsk and Luhansk are not ‘Russian Backed Rebels’, they are a structured armed services in their respective nations whose fully trained members are serving in the defence of their nations and the provision of the rule of law in the Donetsk PR and the Luhansk PR, since 2015,” says a Major in the Donetsk Army who is not authorized to speak to foreign journalists but was willing to speak unidentified through his wife who is English-speaking and a member of the global RINJ Women civil society organization which has adamantly opposed “all military measures being used to cope with the alleged crisis in Ukraine where the status quo of turmoil has been maintained for nearly eight years”.
“These two countries declared their independence in early 2014 following their own referendums which surprisingly no other nation acknowledged and that includes Russia, the European Union, Ukraine and the United States,” ex Lt.-Col. Simon Baldock, now an Israeli security analyst explains.
“Today the people of Luhansk and Donetsk face an estimated 100,000 Ukraine and American troops, with missiles, rockets, tanks and bombers with other troops and weapons coming to join them from Spain, Italy, France and the United Kingdom. Thousands of tons more artillery shells, rockets and missiles pour into Ukraine from America and the USA-controlled NATO group,” explains Dale Carter, a political science PhD who works with the global civil society women’s rights group, RINJ Women which has numerous chapters of its organization in the region.
