U.S. military generals have proposed sending more U.S. forces into Eastern Europe. The proposals were shared in an annual meeting of U.S. defense leaders this past weekend at the Reagan National Defense Forum.
The new proposal would increase the number of U.S. brigades in Europe at any given time, but rather than deploying troops permanently, they would rotate in and out for six month terms.
The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday:
The proposal for more rotating forces must be formally developed by Pentagon planners and then approved by the Obama administration and funded by Congress. The military will push for the inclusion of funding in a budget request to be sent to Capitol Hill early next year, officials said.
Gen. Philip Breedlove, the supreme allied commander of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, said “Decisions on the proposal will be made “in the next couple of months.” (Source: WSJ)
WSJ European Security Correspondent Julian Barnes provided the following insights in an interview on WSJ Lunch Break:
“What we’re talking about is not putting more troops permanently in Europe. That is sort of a tactic of the past, Pentagon officials will tell you. Instead we are talking about rotating units. These units would still be based in the United States, but would come over for six months at a time.”
“The U.S. has one brigade already that does this, but we’re talking about multiple brigades. And in addition to infantry brigades, we’re talking about artillery, attack aviation, a much broader range of military power that would deploy for temporary periods of time.”
“The eastern European allies very much want something like that to happen.” (Source: WSJ)
This story caught my attention because it fits what I saw in a dream back on March 1 2015. I saw a proposal developed from within the Obama administration for $200 million. It was then given to President Obama for authorization. Not only did he approve it, but he increased the amount to $1.2 billion. I shared the details of that dream in my previous post, The Event Before the Event.
In my dream, I did not see what happened to the proposal after President Obama authorized it, but it makes sense it would need to go to Congress for spending authorization. The cost for implementing this proposal has not yet been announced, but we can expect to see that number soon.
Based on the timing shared by Gen. Philip Breedlove, he expects decisions to be made within the next couple of months followed by Congressional approval early next year. The event I was shown to watch for had nothing to do with Congress. I was shown President Obama’s authorization would be the sign that would cause increased tensions and an economic collapse would come soon afterwards. For more details about what I saw in the first dream from 7/7/2014 see my previous post, Warning Sudden Economic Collapse Coming in 2015.
Tensions are already higher than at any time since the end of the Cold War due to events in Syria and Ukraine, but the latest plans would cause tensions to increase even more. The plans call for increased U.S. troops in Eastern European nations such as Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, and Belarus. In a related story, the Wall Street Journal reported two weeks ago on NATO’s plans to increase troops in the region.
Russian military forces have already taken a series of steps to deter this kind of escalation by the United States.
Russia has been building up and modernizing its military to make U.S. steps to reinforce European defenses more difficult. Russian submarine patrols and exercises have increased dramatically, Navy officials have noted.
Russia also has been increasing what military leaders call anti-access, area denial forces—air defense systems, surface-to-surface missiles, anti-ship weaponry—that can be used to keep opposing military equipment at arm’s length. (Source: WSJ)
