Top US General in Europe Cries Russian Threat to Get More Troops, Planes & Ships

Citing the phantom menace of ‘Russian aggression’ amid Washington’s withdrawal from the INF treaty, the head of the US European Command has asked the Senate for more troops, jets, missiles and ships, to ‘defend’ European allies.

Testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, General Curtis Scaparrotti argued that the US maintains global military superiority, but cited “evolving Russian capabilities” as a threat to that dominance, challenging the US “ability to operate uncontested in all domains.”

Scaparrotti, who as the head of EUCOM is also the supreme NATO commander in Europe, claimed without evidence that the Russian military posture is “increasingly aggressive” and sought aid from Congress to bolster EUCOM’s “assigned and rotational forces.”

In addition to more troops, ships, spies and everything but the kitchen sink, Scaparrotti revealed that EUCOM has requested two more destroyers from the US Navy, and maybe also an aircraft carrier, in order to counter what he said were the expanding capabilities of the Russian fleet.

2. Putin is getting quite a {{{chuckle}}} watching the US rack up trillions in debt...

It's what broke the USSR and will eventually break the USA.



Carry on Patriot, carry on indeed!

4. But that was a sufficient answer. Perhaps you care to rephrase the "question".
