BREAKING: American Troops Put On HIGH ALERT – United States Shocked By…

Joe Biden’s Pentagon has put 8,500 troops on “heightened alert” for potential NATO deployment.

The move comes at the order of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby laid out the situation at a press briefing on January 23:

At the direction of the president and following recommendations by Secretary [of Defense Lloyd] Austin, the United States has taken steps to heighten the readiness of its forces at home and abroad so they are prepared to respond to a range of contingencies, including response to the NATO Response Force (NRF), if it is activated.

Secretary Austin has placed a range of units in the United States on a heightened preparedness to deploy, which increases our readiness to provide forces if NATO should active the NRF or if other situations develop. All told, the number of forces that then secretary has placed on heightened alert comes up to about 8,500 personnel.

The NATO Response Force is a group of about 40,000 multinational troops that NATO can deploy on short notice. Of those 40,000, about 20,000 are part of the Very High Readiness High Joint Task Force within the NRF.
