White House Admits that Russia Will Not Attack NATO Member States
On January 25, 2023, United States National Security Council spokesman John Kirby stated that Russia will not attack NATO countries.
During a press conference, Kirby was questioned about NATO having enough troops to repel a potential Russian attack on its eastern flank. This scenario has been war-gamed by various military strategists as the Russo-Ukrainian conflict has intensified, with many analysts speculating that it could spill over into NATO countries.
“All I can tell you is we’ve seen absolutely no indication that [Russian President Vladimir] Putin has designs on striking NATO territory,” Kirby stated, while stressing that US President Joe Biden is taking NATO’s Article 5 commitments “seriously.” NATO’s Article 5 declares that an attack on one NATO member state is an attack on all of its members.
In addition, Kirby called attention to how the US has deployed an additional 20,000 troops in Europe, raising the total number of US troops in Europe to 100,000. He added that NATO is “confident that we have the capability, the energy, the talent, the manpower, the resources to meet our Article 5 commitments.”
In a recent report published by the New York Times, senior US officials revealed that the few thousand US troops currently stationed in Romania close to Ukraine’s border will stay there for at least 9 more months.
US officials said on January 21 that there are roughly 4,000 American soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division who have been deployed to the Mihail Kogalniceanu Air Base since the summer of 2022, which includes small groups of troops that routinely train on Romania’s border with Ukraine.
In the past year, the airbase has served as a training center for NATO forces stationed in southeast Europe. Per the New York Times report, these NATO forces would be the first line of defense against Russia should it push westward and attack NATO.
The Biden regime has been ramping up America’s military presence in Europe close to Russia’s traditional sphere of influence ever since Russia launched its military incursion in Ukraine. The deployment also consisted of roughly 12,000 American troops, currently stationed in western Poland, to cooperate with NATO forces in the Baltic states and Poland.
Russia views the US military presence on NATO’s eastern flank as a major national security threat. For that reason, it wants countries like Ukraine to remain neutral when it comes to military alliances.
However, the West is fanatically committed to absorbing all countries within its degenerate fold — moves that will obviously anger Russia. Because of this geopolitical tunnel vision, a tragedy has been unfolding in Ukraine.
Sadly, there’s very little recognition of the West’s geopolitical errors in NATO states, and, as a result, the Ukrainian meat grinder will continue with no real end in sight.
