Verschiedene Meldungen berichten, dass mehrere tausend US-Soldaten nach Israel verlegt werden sollen, während gleichzeitig israelisches Militärpersonal nach Deutschland zum EUCOM kommen soll:

In one of the most blacked-out stories in America right now, the US military is preparing to send thousands of US troops, along with US Naval anti-missile ships and accompanying support personnel, to Israel. It took forever to find a second source for confirmation of this story and both relatively mainstream media outlets are in Israel. With one source saying the military deployment and corresponding exercises are to occur in January, the source providing most of the details suggests it will occur later this spring.

Calling it not just an “exercise”, but a “deployment”, the Jerusalem Post quotes US Lt.-Gen Frank Gorenc, Commander of the US Third Air Force based in Germany. The US Commander visited Israel two weeks ago to confirm details for “the deployment of several thousand American soldiers to Israel.” In an effort to respond to recent Iranian threats and counter-threats, Israel announced the largest ever missile defense exercise in its history. Now, it’s reported that the US military, including the US Navy, will be stationed throughout Israel, also taking part.

Also confirming the upcoming US-Israeli military missile exercises is JTA.org – ‚global news service of the Jewish people‘. In their account, they report, ‚Last week, plans for Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, to visit Israel in January were leaked to Israeli media; his visit likely will coincide with the largest-ever joint U.S.-Israel anti-missile exercise‘.

While American troops will be stationed in Israel for an unspecified amount of time, Israeli military personnel will be added to EUCOM in Germany. EUCOM stands for United States European Command.

Das sieht mehr und mehr nach Kriegsvorbereitungen gegen den Iran aus.

Wie sich aus dem verlinkten Artikel und den Kommentaren (die sind teilweise ausgesprochen lesenswert) ergibt, wird diese Aktion äußerst leise gehandhabt. Dass die JP darüber berichtet, ist erstaunlich, in der amerikanischen Presse soll es nichts geben, in der deutschen ohnehin nicht.

Ich selbst muss mich diesmal bei einem der Blogger im „Freitag“ für das Auffinden bedanken.
