Kennedy Jr. says Biden is preparing for war with Russia
Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. says that the Executive Order signed by US President Joe Biden which mobilizes another 3000 troops to Europe is about "preparing for a ground war with Russia".
Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced Friday that the decision of US President Joe Biden to deploy "3,000 reservists to augment US troops in Europe" has been about preparing the ground for a direct war with Russia.
Kennedy tweeted that "President Biden just called up 3,000 reservists to augment US troops in Europe as part of 'Operation Atlantic Resolve.' I want people to understand what this troop mobilization is about. It's about preparing for a ground war with Russia."
This comes after Biden signed Thursday an Executive Order increasing the number of personnel engaged in Operation Atlantic Resolve in Europe by 3,000, according to the Joint Staff Director for Operations Lt. Gen. Douglas A. Sims.
“Today, the president signed an Executive Order approving the mobilization of select reserve forces… with no more than 3,000 personnel augmenting the armed forces in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve,” Sims said.
Sims further indicated that Operation Atlantic Resolve, which supplied Europe with combat-credible forces, will now also be designated as a contingency operation.
It is worth noting that around 100,000 US troops have been deployed and stationed throughout Europe prior to the newly signed order.
In January of 2023, a US ship carrying around 600 pieces of military equipment docked in Denmark as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve, the Danish Army announced.
The transport ship arrived at Denmark's largest commercial port in Aarhus city and included armored military vehicles destined to be taken to Poland.
"We have never experienced receiving a military ship before. This is the first time that we have been chosen as a transit port for the US military. That's why today is something special," Daniel Moller Jensen, the port's press spokesperson, told the media at the time.
"As Denmark's largest commercial port, we have good conditions and infrastructure to handle such large operations," he said.
The city's mayor, who was overviewing the unloading of the military gear, considered it his country's "obligation to take responsibility for its own safety," describing it a "necessary contribution".
Operation Atlantic Resolve was launched in 2014 and refers to military activities in response to increased tensions with Russia.
