WAR DRUMS: China Positions 1,500 Missiles Aimed at US military Bases

WAR DRUMS: China Positions 1,500 Missiles Aimed at US military Bases
The latest war drums news….

Tensions are increasing and War Drums are pounding louder as now reports are indicating that China has positioned an arsenal of missiles within strike range of US army bases as its war chiefs ready “military hard power” for total conflict. Sources indicate that Military leaders from the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) are aiming these missiles at Taiwan as part of an escalating military threat to the island. This is of great concern considering, US military bases in Okinawa are within range of the DF-16 ballistic missiles – which can strike targets with “pinpoint precision” from 1,500km away. The Chinese defense minister Feng Shih-kuan reportedly has issued the shock announcement as tensions over the disputed South China Sea territory threaten to spill over into war. These comments follow Taiwan’s revealing of it it having missiles capable of reaching Chinese shores last week.


Fully ready to be lethal’: US-led NATO battalion to be deployed to Poland 

A US-led battalion of over 1,100 soldiers will be deployed in Poland in the beginning of April to deter what is said to be possible Russian “aggression,” with the unit’s commander stressing that his troops are ready to use lethal force.

The NATO battle group to be stationed in Orzysz, 220 kilometers northeast of the capital, Warsaw, will include more than 900 American troops, around 150 British personnel and some 120 Romanian servicemen, Reuters reported.

“This is a mission, not a cycle of training events. The purpose is to deter aggression in the Baltics and in Poland,” US Army Lt. Col. Steven Gventer, the battle group’s commander, said.

“We are fully ready to be lethal,” Gventer said during a press conference on Monday.

 UK troops deployed in Estonia to ‘defend NATO’ from Russia (VIDEO)

Another of the battle group’s high-ranked officers, US Army Major Paul Rothlisberger, added that April’s deployment is “not the entirety of NATO’s response” to Moscow.

The battle group is being deployed in Poland in line with the decision to place four multinational battalions in the Baltics, agreed by NATO last year.

It will see around 4,000 NATO troops with tanks, armored vehicles, air support and high-tech intelligence centers arriving in Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.

The three other battle groups will be headed by Britain, Canada and Germany, with other NATO members, including France, also making their contribution. They are expected to be operational by June.

The buildup near Russian borders is explained by NATO as being due to the need to reassure the bloc’s eastern European allies in view of Russia’s reunification with Crimea, Moscow’s alleged involvement in the Ukrainian conflict and what NATO calls overall “aggressive” behavior by Russia.

Russia has repeatedly criticized NATO’s buildup in Eastern Europe, which it views a threat to its national security.

In February, Russian President Vladimir Putin blamed NATO for endangering global peace by trying to provoke a conflict with Moscow through its “newly-declared official mission to deter Russia.”

Earlier, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Aleksey Meshkov warned that “the steps by NATO gravely increase the risk of incidents” between the alliance and Russian forces.

Apart from the buildup on its borders, Moscow is also concerned by the new US ground-based missile defense system in Eastern Europe and increased presence of NATO vessels in the Black Sea.
