Military Review

If you start to lie, lie to the end

31
On January 16, over US 300 marines arrived in Norway to complete a basic military training course. According to the representative of the Norwegian local defense forces, the US military will be deployed at the Vernes base in 1500 kilometers from the Russian-Norwegian border.




In March, infantrymen will take part in Joint Viking exercises along with British troops, which are part of a bilateral agreement between the countries. According to Reuters, the US military will remain in Norway for a year, and in six months one group will be replaced by another.

The Russian embassy in Oslo has not received any comments yet. However, in October 2016, when the first information about future exercises appeared, misunderstanding and discontent were already expressed. “If we recall the numerous statements by the official representatives of the Norwegian government about the absence of a threat from Russia, we would like to understand for what purpose Norway is increasing its military potential by accepting the US military in Vernes,” the representative of the Russian embassy said.

Since the middle of last year, the NATO leadership has consistently acted on two fronts. On the one hand, it puts pressure on European countries, scaring them with the “threat” from the Russian Federation. However, neither officials nor informational publications give any explanations on this matter. On the other hand, the bloc is building up its military presence in Europe, convincing everyone, including Moscow, that this has nothing to do with preparing for retaliatory measures in the event of aggression. There is no logic and interconnection between these two actions, but for the countries under the control of the alliance there are enough such arguments.

But, of course, the concentration of NATO troops near the borders of Russia needs something to be explained. At the Pentagon, this is called "rotation", but it is organized very ambiguously. “The so-called“ continuous rotations ”are planned in such a way that the units on duty will not leave the temporary accommodation places before the arrival of their shift staff,” said the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova. “This is a long-term deployment of US forces and assets in Europe.”

The scale of these "rotations" is really huge. Earlier in January, an armored brigade was deployed to Poland, namely 4 thousand military personnel and 2,5 thousand units of military equipment, including 87 tanks, 144 infantry fighting vehicles and 18 self-propelled artillery mounts. In December 2016, the advanced US ground forces warehouse in the Netherlands was commissioned. The creation of similar facilities in Belgium and Germany is expected. In recent years, such NATO activity has had no precedent.

The behavior of the Russian government remains as neutral as possible: the inexplicable actions of the West were not awarded a response even in words. And therein lies a small discrepancy, which gives the true motives of the Americans with their heads: dozens, if not hundreds, of headlines appeared in the Western press, reporting “Kremlin irritation” caused by NATO’s peaceful teachings. Based on what such conclusions are made, if those who could express this irritation keep silence? There is no doubt that this is a primitive juggling of facts, the purpose of which is to make Europe, tormented by the economic crisis, the fuel issue and the endless stream of illegal immigrants, also be afraid of Russia.

Probably would have happened if Western provocations had led to the expected result. But by now this is not happening in the most successful way. However, the scenario is already nearing its apogee, and there are two possible options for development: either the exercises will take place, and then you have to think about what to do with the crowd of military personnel scattered throughout Europe, or America will continue methodically bringing people in uniform to the Old World, demonstrating the failure of its version about "rotations". But in the second case, the US will create a new problem for itself, because sooner or later people and equipment will have to be taken back.

    Everyone is trying to conquer the north. The exercises are conducted. True, in March, when it is already warmer and the polar night will end. Interestingly, do they have diapers now heated? Or again they will complain about the impossibility of conducting actions in the conditions of the Arctic

      It's time to get used to it. We are not trusted and afraid of us. In many European countries, this fear exists. These forces in Norway are not a threat to us, but some measure of calm for the allies. I don't see anything wrong with that. Of course, we expressed the duty "concern", but it looks silly somehow. We are afraid of 300 infantrymen who will be 1500 km away. from our border. If there are any serious forces mobilized, which will number in the hundreds of thousands, this will be cause for concern. And so the usual Americanophobia, to distract people from problems with the famous slogan: "The country is surrounded by enemies."

        No, some commentators americanophiliato deceive the people once again with the famous slogan: "America is our friend!"

        And these "friends" for some reason are not sitting at home, but tens of thousands of kilometers away from him Russian borders. But for Americanophiles this is normal, yes .... negative

          NATO reduced its combat effectiveness until the events in the Crimea and the Donbass. At the time of these events, the United States withdrew many of its units from Europe. There wasn’t even a single American tank already. Now the allies felt a threat from Russia:
          - We conduct the largest exercises in the world;
          - We conduct exercises without warning;
          - We have sharply increased the rate of production of military products;
          - We are again forming divisions and tank armies;
          - We actively use military force against neighboring countries;
          Naturally, in such conditions in Europe they began to feel uncomfortable. Therefore, American troops are returning to Europe. This is understandable to anyone who follows the events of recent years.

        Yes, you are absolutely right, we are afraid, but not for ourselves, but for the Scots, Norwegians, because men are Scots, they are wearing skirts, and the AMERISH soldiers are so inadequate, YET THE SAME ACTIVE PEDERASTS.

          About this card, the Emperor once said that the United States will tear its navel sooner or later. This whole map simply means a wild scattering of forces and means, scattered infrastructure and the absolute practical ineffectiveness of coordinating the life support of such a map. In addition, the card instantly becomes dead when a dollar debt bubble bursts. The machine tool, on the other hand, cannot work forever, and debt cannot grow indefinitely either. And writing it off by means of war, i.e. on the 6th priority, it is not realistic, since what is "zeroing" for, if as a result they will receive guaranteed destruction of everything around them and unsuitable conditions for life. Moreover, they naively believe that it is they who will destroy. And they don't want to think that they themselves will be destroyed even before they try to destroy someone.

    The outgoing administration signed a ton of papers, treaties looking for some documents that simply oblige the US and NATO to act in this way. Those. options:
    1. To spoil the new arrivals.
    2. It is necessary to carry out, and there you look and Trump will be drawn in.

    Kill me with a cat tail ... I don’t understand.
    Russia presents notes on the deployment - attention - 87 tanks and 18 self-propelled guns. The team, damn it, the whole.
    As for me ... so the Wehrmacht tank battalion had a slightly smaller number of tanks. 60 there was something ... or 70. And howitzers were inevitable ..... with which to fight. And then what - two batteries? Or six? Or whatever they count.
    Well, profit and profit .... well, at least not sunk. And when unloaded, they did not break.
    And how many similar rubbish in Europe is there already? Why do not they say?
    Is it doubled in composition? Or ... how many times?
    I have not followed the deployment of the adversary’s troops for a long time, therefore, I don’t understand the pressure.
    Incinerate a company ... or two .... or three ... what's the difference? The main thing is to collect them on time, in a heap and in the right place!

    Everything is clear with Norway. In the case of global armageddon, the US elite have long looked after alternate airfields, and Norway is one of them. There are many warehouses with American military equipment and God knows what else. It is clear that the locals are unlikely to be glad of the commanders who have come over, and they need to be shot by armed guards. Nothing personal, just business.
