US military reinforcement plans in Europe

36
As US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter stated during his speech at the Center for International and Strategic Studies in Washington, the program of military assistance to European allies, the European Initiative for Security Guarantees, was renamed the European Initiative for Restraint.




According to him, after more than 20 years, the need to contain Russia has matured. The change of this paradigm in relations with the Russian Federation was reflected not only in the name, but also in the content of the program. Provides a radical increase in funding for US military projects in Europe. If in the 2016 year, the Pentagon spent 789 million dollars in this area, then in the 2017 year it is already planned to allocate 3,4 billion. Another 900 million dollars will be sent through other departments, including the State Department to "deter Russian aggression." In general, the growth of financial injections is consistent with an increase in the alliance contingent at the Russian borders. In total, in 2017, it is planned to further deploy thousands of military personnel from 3 to 5, which will require additional costs for their maintenance.

NATO is positioning these measures as a response to Russian aggression, which, in the opinion of Western partners, manifested itself in the actions of the Russian Federation towards Georgia and Ukraine. As Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced in December of 2016, the number of alliance contingent near the Russian borders increased three times over ten years, and eight times near the western borders.

    And after that they prove to me that Status-6 is not a humane weapon? For me, the Club should be produced in standard containers, so that the desire to sleep sweetly is completely off the mattresses.

                  It will soon turn out that Simon Bolivar built the pyramids in Egypt, defeated the "Invincible Armada" and was the first to fly to the Moon ... I almost forgot - he still married Cleopatra and was a proto-ukr! wassat

        What mattresses are trying to do. That's why I talked about Status-6 and Clab in containers. At a depth of a kilometer, there is no missile defense, and there are essentially no means of opposition.

      Is it not time for us to pursue a policy of Deterrence from Deterrence? For every extra hundred military personnel at our borders, 1 medium-range missile on the database or anecdote to tell them about unfaithful wives on the same ship

        Why? It will be an arms race in which the USSR has already exploded ... There is an asymmetric answer, it is Status 6. It’s cheap, efficient and quick to manufacture. There is no need to make the companions smart, think about how to get through the missile defense, switch to hyper sound, and so on ... and now let turnip mattresses scratch, how to react to our Status at a depth of a kilometer. At the same time, this robot torpedo, speaking in flying language, moves taking into account the terrain, changes course, etc. ... go track it. And he came to the end point and lay to the bottom waiting for the command. That is, in fact, Status-6 is a revolver cocked at the temple of mattresses.
        And what is most remarkable in this project is that a similar program against the Russian Federation is useless!

      The weapon is holding back. On the eastern flank of NATO, Russia has superiority in weaponization at times. Amplification is normal there for the sake of peace.

        Russia has never invaded Europe. What then are we going to give our brothers a shot? How many times has Europe tried to invade Russia? That's it. We know your "containment". In which case (God forbid) do not be offended that you got in the face.

    Stupid European politicians absolutely do not want to understand (or they just don't give a damn) that Europe is a victim for pi ... owls in the alleged 3rd World War (if this war starts) and if the Russian strategists still have to reach them, then Europe simply doesn’t no chance of surviving a big war. EU as rams for slaughter.

    Those more heroes by the way)

    How did it happen that NATO troops invited to the Baltic states because of fear of Russia behave like occupiers. So in Ventspils there were several incidents involving NATO sailors, the mayor of the town called NATO members "pigs" and "freaks" for fights. harassment and threats "by the power of the United States", "filth and mess". Now it became known that the Riga taxi drivers were forced to give battle to the NATO troops in the person of their drunken soldiers returning from a night out.

    Riga police said that "on the morning of April 25, four US citizens were sorting out their relations with taxi drivers. One of the servicemen was smashed in the face during the showdown" - that is, the vaunted NATO members, without their precision weapons, could not defeat even taxi drivers!

    "It was established that NATO fighters were having fun in Old Riga and decided to return to the hotel early in the morning. However, near the hotel they quarreled with the taxi driver over the bill. Colleagues came to the driver's aid, after which a fight ensued," the press adds. She also reports that the United States is "evacuating" all military personnel involved in fights, violence, scandals and massacres from the Baltic states.

    Let us remind that NATO members arrived in Latvia within the framework of exercises where the Americans "trained" together with the soldiers of Latvia and Estonia. At the same time, at the end of April, at least 150 NATO soldiers arrived in the Baltic States, who "will not only take part in the exercises, but will also remain in the country until the end of 2014."

    So, we think, there will be no "adventures" in the future. If only they did not run into ordinary Russian men who accidentally found themselves in the Baltic states for work or rest. Otherwise, complaints will go to the UN!

        It does not matter at all how any state is called "witnesses of socialism." The main thing is that the inhabitants of these states have a warm, light and satisfying life. Not like under the "brotherly regime" of "witnesses." And from the realization of this indisputable fact "witnesses" jump out of their pants. But they can't do anything.
        By the way, the Baltic states were given to the Germans by the ancestors of the "witnesses", the Bolsheviks. Right in 1918.

    Well, we clearly understand that these are the last spit of the old administration in our direction.
    And we clearly understand that if something happens, it’s far from tanks and guns that will be used.
    So this is nothing more than luring us into an arms race.
    Well, show your bedding in Europe that the owner did not forget about them.

    For these fucking Eureka, the best answer would be to publish maps showing the points of impact with nuclear missiles in the event of a "sideways" look at Russia. Many locals would be sober and those willing to be accommodated near the house would be kicked out into the street with a protest.

      The other day, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree abolishing a permit for the transit of NATO arms and other military cargo to Afghanistan through Russian territory. And this means that the transit point in Ulyanovsk for the transfer of military equipment, which they planned to organize in our city, will be closed. Although in reality it did not exist even a day and remained only on paperhttp://73online.ru/readnews/34883

    Let them plan, they print dollars, you just need to be friends with CUBA, so that it just slurs and America doesn’t die.
    And you need to deal with your country, and let the hell with them scare them. I want Kamchatka, to see the geysers, and not to count the US tanks.

    It’s too late to drink Borjomi if the liver is in the ass. Cuba does not conflict with the United States, the Americans realized their mistake, it’s better to be bad friends than to fight well. Cubans will no longer let us in with our missiles. And we, realizing this, will not try to do this. In order not to experience disappointment and shame.

    Transit probably existed. And it was done so that the Taliban did not put you in cancer in your Uzbekistan and did not begin to marry you with their donkeys. The war in Afghanistan at the hands of the Americans. Does it not suit you? Then why the hell are you nonsense?
