BREAKING: US, NATO Quietly Preparing For All-Out War With This Country…

These aren’t games anymore.

The United States and NATO are preparing for a major conflict with Russia and it would certainly be a bloody conflagration.

For the first time in 25 years, leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization – the 67-year-old mutual defense treaty to protect Western Europe from Russian and Soviet aggression – will meet to discuss how to prepare for war in the Baltics.

These countries – Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia – were once Soviet states but are now NATO members and U.S. allies. Since Vladimir Putin’s seizure of Crimea, these countries have grown increasingly nervous about further Russian aggression.

And rather than merely saber-rattling, NATO is now planning for a major military confrontation, The Nation reports.

In what is likely to be its most significant move, the Warsaw summit is expected to give formal approval to a plan to deploy four multinational battalions along the eastern flank—one each in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. Although not deemed sufficient to stop a determined Russian assault, the four battalions would act as a “tripwire,” thrusting soldiers from numerous NATO countries into the line of fire and so ensuring a full-scale, alliance-wide response. This, it is claimed, will deter Russia from undertaking such a move in the first place or ensure its defeat should it be foolhardy enough to start a war.

The new plan calls for the deployment of four NATO battalions in the Baltics – one each in Poland and the other three countries. “Although not deemed sufficient to stop a determined Russian assault, the four battalions would act as a “tripwire,” thrusting soldiers from numerous NATO countries into the line of fire and so ensuring a full-scale, alliance-wide response. This, it is claimed, will deter Russia from undertaking such a move in the first place or ensure its defeat should it be foolhardy enough to start a war.”

The United States is bound by the terms of the NATO treaty to come to the aid and defense of any nation that is under attack. This means if Russian troops move into any of the small Baltic states, we would be obligated to assist with the same vigor and the same resources as if we were under attack – including ground troops.

This follows a move at the Pentagon from defeating insurgent forces like the Taliban in Afghanistan – which it appears we may be doing for decades – to “a return to great-power competition,” including the possibility of all-out war with “high-end enemies” like Russia and China.

While the country is distracted by the “War on Terror” and racial tension here at home, Secretary Carter and his aides are seriously thinking about—and planning for—conflicts that would involve another major power and could escalate to the nuclear realm.
