There are multiple articles but here is one from a site I don't know much about.

Basically, US has been put on alert, especially 1CD since they have forces in Poland right now.

Tensions are rising against Russia.

This is going to show multiple enemies are taking a step to further thier goals with our new president.

The military is prepared for such a thing. But is the president?

The U.S. won't do anything and if they did, it would be a political-military disaster. It doesn't really matter who the President is.
The US is planning on something happening.
Because we are putting 1CD on recall for them to be ready for anything.

Not unusual, doesn't mean active intervention anymore than deploying forces to the Gulf last Spring meant war with Iran.

Why would Russia push into Ukraine and why would USA have to do something over something? Just because third rate propaganda rag is posting something it doesn't necessarily mean it's true.
I just found an article. The US mikitary seems to think it means something

Atlantic Council is always calling for war against Russia, it's what they are paid for.
Russia is constantly rotating forces at their Southern border and right now they are increasing their troop levels somewhat, to discourage Ukraine from restarting war in Donbass. Ukraine on the other hand is making loud noises about restarting the war, probably to give State Department excuse to forcibly end Nord Stream 2 construction, which is nearing completion.
So no, there will be no war, the most likely scenario is a mayor incident, Russia declared to be at fault and State Department forcing Germany to cancel NS2. Articles in propaganda outlets are simply meant to prepare ground for these developments.

They would do not that.But if...russian are making monuments of soviets who genocided poles and was more cruel then gestapo.
Ukrainian are making monuments of UPA genociders who tortured even polish children to death.

and how did that work for them last time?:whistle:;)
Pretty good, since Britain and France honered it and the Nazi's were crushed.

Or are you complaining about the Soviets? Can you actually construct a scenario where Putin has as an easy excuse as 'saving' Poland from an ongoing invasion?

Honestly this is to be expected. Russia sensing weakness within the executive Branch now tries to take advantage to gain a better position for itself. It after all has long been searching for warm water ports and is soon to be facing a massive demographics and economic crisis. From the Russian perspective, they'll need to act relatively soon to blunt the impact of the coming demographic and economic crisis.

Russia is basically a glorified petro-state with too much of its capital tied in the hands of a few oligarchs who largely use funds to maintain their power and influence rather than using it to foster internal economic development.

I think within the next few decades, a war with Ukraine is likely going to ensue. The country's government is unstable, and it has a very sizeable Russian minority which might agitate for reunification with Russia as tensions within the country worsen.

Atlantic Council is always calling for war against Russia, it's what they are paid for.
Russia isn't the power they once were 30-40 years ago. They're at best strong secondary power, but still a regional power at best. Every time the media harps about possibility for war with Russia its more of a distraction from ongoing domestic issues.

The US does however have serious issues it needs to address within Asia. Though its response has been lackluster thanks to its forces tied up in the middle east and due to the current revolving door of presidencies leading to the nation's foreign policy largely being an incoherent mess.
