The US has deployed a new detachment of F-15C fighter jets to the Baltic states this week, anticipating an increase in aerial patrols in the lead-up to joint wargames between Russia and Belarus, which are scheduled to begin on September 14.
Russian officials have issued multiple statements attempting to assure NATO that the wargames are nowhere near as big as they are being presented, and are merely an exercise of a “defensive scenario.”
NATO, however, is interpreting it the same way they’ve interpreted every action Russia has taken in recent years, as a prelude to a wholesale Russian invasion of Eastern Europe. This is fueling calls not just for the US deployment, but more NATO buildup in the Baltics.
NATO has, of course, been predicting an imminent Russian invasion for several years now, and has been using that as a constant pretext for adding more troops to the Russian border. At this point, no one seriously expects Russia to invade anymore, but are eager to keep playing that card for the sake of their deployments.

This is indeed a big exercise but obviously wholly within Russia proper and probably in int. airspace as well. NATO can slowly bring up all the military equipment and soldiers (as they have done since the 90’s) and have Germans (again) marching up and down the borders and Americans strutting around all they want, but it wont intimidate Russia more than it annoys them.
If NATO’s (US’s) intention is to invade Russia at some point (it is) or prevent Russian ICBM’s to reach US in case of US trying a “first strike option” (that too) it will be useless. History shows clearly that any attempt to invade, conquer or “contain” Russia is futile, From Karl XII of Sweden, Napoleon and Hitler to name a few western “drang nach osten’s” they were all miserably defeated. In case of a nuclear war, US according to even their own estimates, will be erased from the face of the Earth in less than 30 minutes.
What really frightens the NATO cowards is that Russia’s many snap-exercises or bigger events like Zapad, clearly shows that Russia can move enormous amount of manpower and military hardware in a matter of a few days, if not hours. For US and their vassals invasion forces it takes months and years and that is only against inferior defenseless third world adversaries starved to death by IMF and US terrorist mercenaries.
Russia is well prepared not only here but globally as well, the only problem i see with so much US bravado and hullabaloo brought to one spot like this, is dangerous accidents because of nervous inexperienced western war criminals. This is the other super power, not Somalia….
There is only one stupid power
