Only few cuts A new Stryker Combat Brigade Moron [AB], Spain, open because they have large ramps that can handle large numbers of aircraft. One of the things we like about Ramstein, for example, is the footprint of one strategic flight without refueling for an airlifter, Wald said.You can take off from the States, no refueling, [and] land at Ramstein.
But Ramstein is not only a big air hub it is the place of the command bunker of the Warfighting .When US-president Bush visited Albania on June 10th, the Warfighting Headquarters in Ramstein provided the security.
Hereby were engaged: - 43 military planes - the landing craft "US Bataan" with several thousands marines - more than 800 airmen of the USAFE :
- F-16 pilots from the Aviano Airbase in Italy
- F-15C fighter jets from the RAF airfield in Lakenheath (England)
- Refuelling-planes of the 100th air-refuelling-squadron of the RAF airfield in Mildenhall (England)
- 1 AWACS-plane (E-3 Sentry) from the Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma (USA)
(AWACS = Airborne Warning and Control System).
This military action was planned before.2000 participants trained this in the Warrior Preparation Center in Einsiedlerhof (part of Kaiserslautern).This centre for virtual war games is managed together by the US Army in Europe and the US Air Force in Europe (20).
In Ramstein all the radar dates are collected, analysed and coordinated, taken from air, water and surface.When US-troops from the war theatre in Afghanistan and Iraq ask for help by the Air Force, Ramstein gives the commands to the fighter planes, which are deployed nearby - also to the bombers deployed in le that there is always enough supply of bombs and rockets, which are brought steadily toAs happened during Bush's visit in Albania Ramstein commands also units of the US Navy.The "US Bataan" is a hi-tech landing craft with marines, who can invade every coast with helicopters and amphibious vehicles - also in Iran.I am sure, that the targets for the air strike against Iran are already in the computers.Coordinators in the Warfighting Headquarters of the 3rd Air Force in Ramstein will also care for the refuelling of the long distance bombers in the air when they return after the bombardment.Also the AWACS-planes of the NATO-base in control the whole air space in Europe and the Middle East in a circle within 500 km.
NATO command CC-Air HQ Ramstein orders the reconnaissance flights of the German Tornados in .
The order of every air attack in Afghanistan comes from Ramstein.Many women and children were killed in these attacks (21).
Not far from Ramstein you find the biggest US Military HospitalLandstuhl.43.807 wounded warriors from Afghanistan and Iraq landed in Ramstein (status from August 2007).
They "Landstuhl Regional Medical Center /LRMC" or to the stopover "435th Contingency Aeromedical Staging Facility / CASF" in Ramstein for a further transport to another hospital.On July 10th US-president Bush came on board of a C-17, which had landed on the Air Force Base in Maryland with 24 wounded soldiers.The plane came from Ramstein (23).Of the 68,000 US soldiers stationed in Germany today, the US Army maintains nearly 59,000, along with a
squadron of US Air Force and the European headquarters of the Marine Corps.A main contingent of the army is the V corps in Heidelberg (approx.
42,000 soldiers) under the command of lieutenant general Ricardo S.Sanchez.Because of his involvement in the tortures at Abu Ghuraib prison, Sanchez war replaced as commander-in-chief of the US troops in Iraq (2), but he still serves as commander of the V.Corps in Germany.After the return of the 1st Infantry division in Wrzburg (3) to the USA the 1st Armored Division Wiesbaden (4) is still subordinated to the corps.
It consists of 16,500 soldiers, 159 M1A1 Abrams main battle tanks, 173 M2 Bradley IFV, 36 howitzers M109A6 Paladin, 18 M270 MLRS and 18 helicopters AH-The Allied Land Component Command Headquarters Heidelberg / ALCC HQ HD ist responsible for all army forces of
NATO and therefore also for theground combats in Afghanistan.
Heidelberg just in August 2007 was moved for 6 month to Afghanistan.The ALCC is one of the 6 NATO "Joint Force Component Commands".Until July, 1st, 2004 it's name was "NATO Joint Headquarters Centre" JHC (and before "Allied Land Forces Central Europe" LANDCENT).The change into the Component model marks NATO's definite break from territorial defennse.The
"Component Command" has no definite geographic responsibility anymore.
Instead the Land-, Air-, and Navy-components are fit to provide commandi
national courts cannot exercise legal jurisdiction over U.S.military personnel who commit crimes against local people, except in special cases where the U.S.military authorities agree to transfer jurisdiction."2.
You can find the legal frame for Germany in the NATO-Status of forces agreement (SOFA) from June, 19., 1951.There are Additional Agreements to SOFA (ZA-NTS) between Germany,Britain, Netherlands, Belgium and France, which have been modified 1993.There are special agreements for admission and coordination of manoeuvers from March 18., 1994.
Also for three US-German training shooting and bombing ranges there are administration agreements, which adapt regulations to the practice of the Bundeswehr.The same happened with three shared
UK-German, and one shared
range with Belgium, France and Netherlands.
The question is if the "allied forces" will obey this regulations, and if not what happens.
I remind the incident in 1998 in Cavalese (Italy) where a US warplane killed 20 people of an alpine carriage lift while flying at dangerously low (and not permitted) levelsfound the pilots not guilty.
with US bases, violators and criminals will not be punished.They act
