    U.S. tanks roll into Germany to protect against potential Russian invasion

    NORTHERN GERMANY -- U.S. Tanks rolled into Germany this weekend.

    The deployment -- which also includes 3,500 U.S. Troops -- is to protect Eastern Europe against a potential Russian invasion.

    In the dock area of the German city of Bremerhaven all around is American military hardware just off the boat -- everything from Humvees to tanks.

    The official name for this display of military muscle is Operation Atlantic Resolve.

    Its purpose is to reassure America’s nervous European allies that the U.S. military will stand with them against any aggressive moves by Russia. Moves, like the 2014 invasion of Crimea, when Russian troops arrived in what had been Ukraine -- and seized it for the Kremlin.

    “We intend to reassure all those here in Europe that we are committed to peace and security, and to send a signal to anybody else who would differ with that, that that’s not gonna work,” said Lt. General Timothy Ray, deputy commander of the U.S.’s European command.America’s response is a decision to stop the draw down of U.S. troops in Europe, and reverse it -- in the first buildup since the end of the Cold War.

    That anybody else would be Vladimir Putin, who is on record as saying its stupid and unrealistic to think that Russia would attack anyone.

    But just in case, Operation Atlantic Resolve is big and very visible deterrent.

    Over the next week all the equipment will leave Germany and be sent to Poland, and from there, be deployed across Eastern Europe.

    He's trying to start a shooting war. If Trump tries to end it, he will be accused of working with Russia.

    Germany is just the pit stop, not the destination

    with only 11 days to go, Im pretty sure this has nothing to do with defending anyone. This has to do with yet another act of treason by the sitting asshole. He is trying to screw things up as bad as he can before President Trump takes over. What better gift to give a new president than a week old world war to contend with.
    and the beauty of it all? for the next couple of hundred years the left will blame President Trump for starting it.
    obama should honestly without any hint of trying to hide what Im thinking, be tried for, convicted and shot for treason against this country.

    Not all of it, but enough to get the gist. That still doesn't stop the fact that the US has had troops in Germany since 1945.

    It's a paragraph and a half. You didn't even open the link you lying fool.. That being said, yes, the US has had a military presence all over Germany since the end of the war, these tanks are being sent to Poland and other former Warsaw Pact country's and that is a significant escalation.
