USA: Russia - number two in terms of threat after North Korea

27
The US Congress reviewed the draft military budget for the 2018 year. Ultimately, the budget project was agreed. It provides for limiting the financing of military aid to Ukraine. The volume of this assistance will be 350 million dollars and will be allocated in the format of the "Initiative to support Ukraine in the field of security." The initiative provides for the supply of "lethal defensive weapons." Reports about it RIA News.


The US military budget 2018 provides assistance to the Baltic countries. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, Washington is going to allocate 100 million dollars to "repel Russian aggression."

USA: Russia - number two in terms of threat after North Korea


In general, the cost of 4,6 billion dollars is envisaged in the US military budget for countering Russia in Europe. And these are only open articles of the American budget document. It remains only to assume what kind of US funds actually spend on anti-Russian actions around the world, trying to grasp the status of "the main player on the planet."

Speaking at a hearing in the American Parliament, the head of the Command of Special Operations of the US Army, General Raymond Thomas, said the following:
The Russian threat for us is in second place after the threat from North Korea.


As you can see, the fight against international terrorism is not among the American priorities. The conclusion suggests itself ...

      On the Russian threat, the United States decently welded dough from Europe. Now, Asians - neighbors of North Korea will shell out for this. bully

        The media learned about a loophole that allows the United States not to appear at the NATO war with Russia According to a document declassified by the German Foreign Ministry, the United States reserves the right to refrain from protecting partners in the North Atlantic Treaty, simply if it sees fit.
        What makes Asian partners better? The habit of raking in heat with the wrong hands grows into character, and then into fate.

        British ufologists may have made their last prediction: on November 9-10, UFOs with armed aliens will land on Earth. It is assumed that the purpose of their next visit may be to begin the process of the complete destruction of our planet with unknown weapons.

    It’s time for the Kremlin to stop "partnering": confrontation, so confrontation. "Threats" and relations as an "aggressor" should be mutual.
    It would be nice to indefinitely close the possibility of visiting Russia and doing business in it, owning shares for voters in the Congress, members of their families and their descendants.

      The originality of "recipes" is sometimes striking:

      Technically possible. Just tell me - is it really necessary for these members of Congress? wink
      Quote: samarin1969
      doing business in it

      Technically ... difficult. No one bothers on behalf of this hypothetical "member" to conduct business with any other person, the same?
      Quote: samarin1969
      stock ownership

      It’s impossible. It’s the same as the Kremlin will forbid you to buy milk in stores in the Russian Federation ... for example. It is possible to ban, to implement such a ban - is unrealistic.
      That's it.

      Trump came to China to "be friends" against Russia. Today, US President Donald Trump, continuing his Asian tour, arrived on a visit to Beijing. Trump will stay in China for three days, this is the first visit.

    The funniest thing is to look at our elite, it's their partners who are responding to them the same, their hope for a brighter future is crumbling, and this is their money in danger
    And the people that we did not suffer from illusions and did not dream about pink panties

      Well, what’s your right to cling to the word. In judo (kendo, aikido, karatedo and others before), the word “partner” refers to your technical opponent who can call himself and you as he pleases, but to us accordingly it’s a light bulb. Enemies, rivals can change, for us they are an all-faceless "partner" - which must be "worked out" without any unnecessary emotions.

        In sports, yes ... And in everyday life, the partner is not a spouse - they "slept" and fled forever. Anecdote on the topic: Met a wolf hare and "had lunch" to them. He buried the bones from a good mood and wonders what inscription to make on the grave: he was not a friend, he also wrote an enemy - here lies a “partner”.

    US $ 4,6 billion spending on countering Russia in Europe in the US military budget

    350 million Ukrainians, 100 million Baltic states, and of course the Poles will not be forgotten. Five states of Eastern Europe that do not allow to live peacefully including and the EU. But the threat is Russia. With Americans and the above-mentioned jackals, it’s clear - a complete clinic against the backdrop of Russophobia. It will not end in good.

    Is it that the Negro has been pushed away from the presidents and Russia has dropped to the second position from threat No. 1? belay
    So maybe it’s not in Russia, but in the US presidents?
    Who is more likely, for that, and the threat from Russia is higher? laughing
