United States sends 4000 strong army to Germany and Poland as warning to Russia (Photos)

The United States has sent a 4000 strong army to Germany and Poland as part of it's army permanent rotation plans in Europe as a clear deterrent to Russia.
 
According to the Pentagon, the decision to send the high number of ground forces was to pass a message to one country, which is Russia and it's president, Vladmir Putin.
"Russia as you know with their incursion into Ukraine, that's something that has a lot of our allies and partners concerned," Pentagon Spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis told journalists on Monday. "Being able to demonstrate tangibly our commitment to their defense is an important element of our overall collective defense in Europe."
The 4000 soldiers sent from the 3rd Brigade of the 4th Infantry Division in Fort Carson, Colorado also travelled to Germany with 2,400 pieces of  tanks, armored fighting vehicles, artillery, trucks and containers and will keep the military equipments in Poland before moving to other Eastern European countries to join up with armed forces of their allies.
 
In the aftermath of Russia president Vladmir Putin's intervention in Ukraine, the U.S Armed Forces have revealed they aim to strengthen their armed force (Land, sea and air) presence in Europe to show their European allies that they can't be bulldozed by Russia.
"Let me be very clear: This is one part of our efforts to deter Russian aggression, ensure the territorial integrity of our allies, and maintain a Europe that is whole, free, prosperous and at peace," US European Command Deputy Commander Lt. Gen. Tim Ray said.
"We are invested ... from infrastructure upgrades across the continent to airfields and ranges. We're also pre-positioning supplies and equipment, and exercising with our Allies and partners."
This move will only further heighten already deteriorated tensions between the Obama led U.S and Russia's Putin. Interesting to see how a Trump presidency will pan out.

Why is anti Christ obama hell bent of fighting Russia just days to his handover? He wants to cause trouble for Trump. Obama has only 10days to leave. Why did he not move troops to Europe when he came to power 8 years ago? Thank God Putin is not paying any mind to Obama.
