The Headlines on Britain’s tabloids point to US-NATO war preparations in response to alleged Russian aggression. It is largely a display of war propaganda including an array of images and maps to intimidate Western public opinion. The Russians are Coming…:
“Nato squares up to Putin: As Russia beefs up its military might on Europe’s border, West responds with biggest show of force since the Cold War” according to the Daily Mail.
The reports are replete with insinuations of Russia’s resolve to initiate World War III and destroy the West. In response to Russia’s alleged bellicosity, Britain is slated to deploy more troops and tanks to Estonia, RAF planes are dispatched to Romania.
It’s a “show of force” allegedly to prevent Moscow from attacking Eastern Europe and the Baltic States: ”The moves are designed to stop Moscow taking over or undermining its former Eastern European satellites as it has with Crimea and Ukraine.” (Daily Mail, October 26, 2016)
The US-NATO deployments are nothing new. They are routine and have been ongoing in the course of the last few years, to which Russia has responded. The largest deployments were under Operation Anaconda launched in June 2016, which historians have compared with Operation Barbarossa launched by the Third Reich against the Soviet Union in 1941.
