One hundred days before the reflection of the "Russian threat"

57
British "former" choir began talking about the imminent Russian invasion of Europe. Former head of the British Royal Air Force Michael Graydon worried: would the Americans not leave NATO after the victory of Trump? If left, Putin will take advantage of this. Mr. Shirreff, who previously worked as deputy supreme commander of the NATO Joint Armed Forces in Europe and wrote a book about the nuclear war between the Russians and the Baltic States, agrees with Graydon.


One hundred days before the reflection of the "Russian threat"


What happens if Donald Trump refuses NATO? The threat of war with Russia - that's what!

Three former British generals, and with him the admiral, reported that the UK and Europe should heed their warnings. Otherwise, the “Russian invasion” is inevitable.

He writes about it "Daily Mail".

Sir Michael Graydon, former head of the British Royal Air Force, said that without the US, NATO would not be strong enough to protect Eastern Europe. This man is sure: Trump quite seriously said before the elections that the NATO member states should pay America for their security. Therefore, Europe should think. There are real concerns about the future of NATO. "If the US leaves NATO, it will be an absolute catastrophe, which Vladimir Putin wants exactly." The former military leader called for a "firm position" on the Baltic Sea. The United States there will be very missed.

General Richard Shirreff, who worked as deputy supreme commander-in-chief of the Joint NATO Forces in Europe until 2014, echoes his military counterpart, although he expresses hopes for Mr. Trump’s sanity.

Schirreff expects to hear from Trump a different rhetoric, not the one that took place before the election. Trump must make a “very sober and serious statement” that if “any questions” arise about an attack on a NATO member, then the United States, led by Trump, “without any hesitation” will come to the defense of the attacked country. Anything that was “less than this” would become “really bad the news for NATO. "

The publication reminds that in one of his books Mr. Shirreff depicted a nuclear war with Russia, which in 2017 year invaded the Baltic countries.

The newspaper leads and other opinions.

Lord Dannatt, the former chief of staff of the armed forces, does not share Shirreff’s hopes and is convinced that Mr. Trump’s election statements should be taken seriously.

According to him, if the US leaves NATO, this alliance will cease to exist.

Julian Lewis, chairman of the House of Commons Defense Committee, told the Daily Mail that Trump’s rule could put Europe in a “catastrophically weakened position.”

Lord West, a former security minister, believes that Trump will force "all of Europe to spend more" on defense.

Also, the publication reminds that NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg congratulated Mr. Trump on his victory in the election, noting that he “with impatience” is waiting to start working with Trump on “strengthening NATO, keeping Europe and America safe”.

But Richard Kemp, who commanded the troops in Afghanistan, believes that the world will fear Mr. Trump. According to him, Trump will oppose Putin for the sake of showing that he will not bow to Putin. And people "will be afraid of him."

There is another interesting opinion on this. He was also conveyed to readers by the newspaper. "Daily Mail".

And it is also expressed by the "former."

Donald Trump must demonstrate action against Russian aggression within 100 days after assuming office, said former NATO head Anders Fogh Rasmussen (was the organization's general secretary in 2009-2014 years).

According to him, the elected president of the United States must show "strength" because Russian President Vladimir Putin "respects only a firm hand."

Mr Rasmussen urged the United States to increase support for NATO and create military bases to counter "Russian aggression against NATO states," as well as defend Ukraine.

Rasmussen noted that the Baltic countries and Ukraine are "close friends of the United States." He added: “Neglecting their interests will have far-reaching consequences and will mark the beginning of the end of the [global] system headed by the United States.”

And another opinion from Europe about Trump and defense issues, published in the third article "Daily Mail".

The election of Donald Trump has caused a mass of responses and “warnings” that Europe will not always be able to rely on American protection. The head of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, in particular, has already expressed "concern." According to him, a “commonality” of interests in defense matters is required.

Juncker says: “We need more security in Europe, and I mean more than one anti-terrorism struggle.”

According to Juncker, a different way of “organizing European defense” is needed.

“Regardless of the outcome of elections in the United States, Americans will not always monitor the security of Europe. We have to provide it ourselves, ”the politician believes. That is why the continent needs a “new approach” to the creation of a “European defense community ... including a European army.”

With Juncker solidarity in Germany: the then Minister of Defense Ursula von der Lyayen remained, in her words, in "deep shock" after the victory of Trump. She remembers that the newly elected president had previously challenged the NATO Mutual Defense Pact.

Mrs. von der Lyayen said that the continent must be ready to stand up for itself. She said that she should “invest” funds “in the modernization of European security.”

But British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon debunked the idea of ​​creating a common European army. Last month, he said that London continues to "oppose any new military structure that will generate a duplicate layer of command and control."

In general, we note, Europe not only does not welcome the election of Mr. Trump (by the way, not yet formally completed) to the US presidency, but even in some way panics, fearing “Russian aggression” and the openness of the EU members with all the power of NATO. After all, Trump made it clear before the elections that the United States will be ready to defend only those who will pay for the defense as it should be.

The excitement of European politicians about defense reached such a strong degree that even a special meeting was scheduled in the capital of Belgium. On November 13, the foreign ministers of the EU member states are to meet there. The idea came from Germany.

There is only one hope in Europe - that Trump will show Putin "power."

Trump was taken for a hundred days.

We'll see.

        Now I will explain why.
        Look here. Now it does not matter what Trump does. Collapse NATO, or force the rest to fork out.
        By the condition of the problem, we have:
        1. Screams that Russia will attack the EU in 100 days.
        2. Only NATO is able to stop Putin's "vicious underfed bears"
        3. Shouts of creating a single EU army.
        We have in fact:
        1. Russia is not going to fight the EU. Even with the Poles. Even with the Balts.
        Thus, shouting about the imminent attack of Russia is a win-win option.
        Since after 100 days it will allow you to change the record: and shout about:
        1. Only WE have restrained Putin
        2. We need even more security.
        3. We showed our unity and commitment to democratic values ​​and Putin was scared.
        That's all.

    What Trump said was intended for voters, the middle class. They generally do not give a damn about NATO, Russia, etc. The main thing would be to earn money, the tax service would not fiddle and there was a cozy courtyard. What he would do was do the same as his predecessors, nothing will change here. He will sign papers that are born in the minds of others ..

    And what, the Baltic states possess nuclear weapons? I hear it for the first time. The book is probably from a series of unscientific science fiction. So they moan that Russia will capture them in 2-3 days, and then suddenly a nuclear war. Then maybe the West should not intervene? Will the Baltic States cope with us?

    Stupid people are scaring themselves. But on the other hand, they need to somehow justify the alliance, because now it may not be controlled, puppets are sitting there. So they can’t think, they need to indicate the direction. And some states indicated beyond the puddle.
    And the terms were interesting and set 100 days. Nothing will change, now America will be put on the rails of extortion and Europe will pay "Tribute for 12 years."

    "If the United States leaves NATO, it will be an absolute disaster, which Vladimir Putin just wants." The former commander called for a “firm stance” on the Baltic Sea. The US will be sorely missed there.

    The question is, what should the United States do in the Baltic Sea?
    We look at the map, there are no colonies there, sovereign sprats themselves with a mustache, which Trump is trying to say.
    The arithmetic is simple, all Baltic sprats are equal in value to 1 tank.
    That something like this.

    All these lords sirs admirals generals seem to be extremely ignorant people. The state of Russia and its military doctrine, in any case at the moment, allows for a difficult but effective defense. Pure pragmatism - we would have to master our own, bring them in proper form, pull the people out of poverty, and Russia does not have time to rob the conquered territories. The FSA, on the contrary, has a need to include robberies of new vassals in its orbit, otherwise they cannot survive. So it turns out that the cap is lit on the thief. They want to attack Russia, but it’s terrible to die in a nuclear fire. Here they howl together in chorus for the new master, prepare his psyche for confrontation, and at the same time prepare people to tighten their belts for military needs, which are not there.

    But what about the traitors - the best friends of the new owners, in other words, loyal slaves, but this is while the owner pays the table. And “the beginning of the end of the US-led system” was not laid today, but they chose not to notice it, relying on their friends in Russia, who undermined its foundations, and lost.

      Do not worry. There are no independent people, especially in politics. But they do not elect the president as president, but appoint what is with them, what is with us. Behind Trump are such forces that have twisted TransNacCompanies (and what is more powerful in the world?) Into a ram’s horn.

    As in a joke:
    A woman is standing on the balcony of the 3 floor, a man is walking downstairs, she tells him:
    -the man! I'm afraid of you, you will rape me!
    -how? You stand up there!
    - and I will come down .....

    it is not clear what they want from Russia in a gay rope. They are calling "grab us"! Looks like kirdyk will soon be a debt economy, and zero resources. And then Russia, eternally feeding everyone ...

    Who is there in their window, who screamed with shouts - Russians are coming? Forrestal seems ... Worthy heirs, can they repeat it?

    Hardly ... I read the review, for this 2017 War with Russia ... Well, if he is the same general as the writer, and the rest are the same there, then they should be afraid ... The drunken motorized infantry from Kaliningrad will get lost for the additive at BETEER who went to the nearest village and they have to accept the surrender of NATO in Brussels ... In general, they don’t praise his imperishable ... Garbage they say, the characters are cardboard, villains are not natural ... Anyway ... The plot He doesn’t take ... Graphomania in general ... In Russian, by the way, no, it’s even a shame somehow ...
