      good good drinks I don’t even know what to comment on - from laughter all the sarcasm in my head got messed up ....
      There are a couple of Romanians here, they’ll read, run around with comments, and they’ll set up a serious wave. They will talk about the great and powerful super-duper Romania. They will say that their ancestors stole horses from Velikoukrov HIGHLY when ours and you lived in caves and hunted mammoths with clubs ... laughing laughing

    Vassal dependence in action, on the 21st century street and mores in style 12, it remains to introduce the kissing of the shoe of the President of the United States with a European vassal as a sign of oath

      for example, Belarus is also in vassal dependence on Russia? it remains only to introduce the kissing of Putin’s boot as an oath?
      let’s say the same about Armenia or Kazakhstan, tobish all these countries are in vassal dependence on their hoyazin in the Kremlin, and therefore Russia is pushing (imposing) their weapons on them? good
      I argue following your logic)

    Romania is an American cow and Americans are milking it. Everything is logical.
    It is possible that a loan from the USA will be received for such a thing. Not only money for equipment, but also interest will earn.

      Receive! And not only on the MLRS, but also on the construction of "their" Navy, including submarines! That's the way the SGA hopes to get around Montreux and ride a white Romanian horse into the Black Sea!

    They are planning to squeeze Moldova, and they claim to be part of the kakloreich.
    Not many of these Magyars were crushed near Voronezh, even there was no trace of their army, only a couple of overcoats.

      Magyars actually live in Hungary. And they fought, according to the memoirs of veterans, an order of magnitude more serious than the Romanians, although they were grinded :)

    So the old Soviet RSOs replaced by American ones will be sold somewhere. Perhaps to Ukraine. They do not have enough hail.

    Romania then this is most likely not necessary.
    Here the arithmetic is simple.
    The State Duma transfers 1 yard to Romania through various channels, such as for purchases and 240 cartoons of rollback per deal, weapons are legalized and floated away to spirits in exchange for drugs and oil, profit in half.
    How do you like this scheme?

    And why, one wonders, romanesti weapons, and even a billion with a lifig? After all, for sure, they will trade in all markets around the world. Well, do not fight them with him. As one of our generals once said, having learned that Romania had come out on the side of the Entente: "Minus two corps, at least Your Majesty, to protect the ally from the enemy." They don’t give them, Romanians — they’ll fight you! laughing

    Something does not fit with me:
    1. The country is one of the rogues of Europe
    2. Buys weapons beyond their means
    2. Buys a weapon that, in principle, is not very necessary for her
