NATO plans to conduct large-scale exercises near the borders of Russia

72
NATO countries will conduct large-scale exercises near Russia's borders in October 2018, which will attract thousands of people to 45, said the commander of the United States Marine Corps, General Robert Neller.


NATO plans to conduct large-scale exercises near the borders of Russia


This autumn, in October, there will be large NATO exercises, perhaps the largest amphibian exercises that were held at the peak of the Cold War and called Trident Juncture. Perhaps there will be 45 thousands of NATO troops and dozens of ships and aircraft that will conduct exercises off the coast of Norway against a simulated threat.
- said Neller at a hearing in the US House of Representatives.

The general did not specify exactly where the exercises would be held, but he made it clear that this would be close to the borders of Russia, since, as the commander is sure, she would react to them.

I am sure that from the Russian Federation there will be demarches. But I think this shows the seriousness of the strategy being pursued by the (US) that our NATO allies want to see us there (in Europe) to protect them.
Said Neller.

          In the West and their satellites in Eastern Europe, the fashion for the construction of "protective" fences has gone ... So can we, from our side, untwist a fence made of netting until the fall? Perhaps they will see, think and will not climb?

          It is good that you will not make decisions on the use of nuclear weapons. The use of nuclear weapons in the vicinity of our territory is the height of stupidity. Forgot Chernobyl? Do you know where he is? Do you know that in Belarus people were resettled from infected territories?

            Tactical nuclear weapons, in particular 50Kt caliber, are intended to carry out the army units of the enemy. Not armies, of course, but the brigade on the march is easy. Or a large warehouse, port, base, especially headquarters, airfield, air defense position - these are all primary goals. The first thing the Iskanders will hit at the headquarters, large warehouses, transport hubs, ports, airfields, and air defense positions. In order to instantly nullify strike capabilities, maneuver capabilities by forces and means, to nullify the enemy’s ability to tighten reserves on the theater of operations. Without tactical nuclear weapons, such tasks can be instantly accomplished by forces of operational-tactical complexes of brigade personnel - it is impossible. Conventional warheads would have to spend ammunition for missile brigades, reduced to missile armies. Nobody needs such insanity. And the impact of just a few dozen nuclear warheads on the 50 CT will nullify the entire NATO force in the Baltic states and Poland. In this case, pollution in the Russian Federation will not fall in a significant amount. This class of power and type of combat units affect the territory until several. tens of kilometers in radius. Just because they are thermonuclear devices, not plutonium or uranium warheads. Those - yes, they gave a lot of nastiness in the form of heavy isotopes. And the Iskander warheads are much cleaner. Strontium-90 is a safer isotope than isotopes of Uranus, etc.

              I absolutely agree - it remains to add that a full retaliatory strike by the entire nuclear arsenal of NATO will not follow, since we have not only tactical nuclear weapons, but also strategic nuclear forces.
              Our use of TNWs can entail only similar measures on the part of the aggressor, because if TNWs are created to eliminate armies, then SNFs to destroy countries. Hence the conclusion - while Russia has thousands of nuclear weapons for artillery and missile brigades in service with Russia - it makes no sense to attack Russia.
              So let them conduct their teachings, as the people say - scared the hedgehog ...

        And infantry is not needed. Under this pretext, NATO’s strike forces can be pulled to our borders (not infantry, but tomahawk carriers, the so-called “disarming first strike”). I hope our General Staff also does not close the eye

          The effectiveness of the Tomahawks is overrated, especially when confronted with a well-equipped army. How many cruise missiles are needed to guarantee the suppression of Russian air defense and strategic missile forces? The United States does not have as many carriers. Moreover, the United States will need to concentrate its entire fleet in the launch radius. And this is impossible not to notice. So it will be observation. So, at the first launch by the Tomahawks, we, in turn, will launch nuclear weapons in response.

Also, the nuclear triad around the clock stands on guard of our peace along our borders of the Air Defense Forces, Strategic Rocket Forces, Navy!

        1. "" The increased military presence near Russia creates problems, says Julie Wilhelmsen, a research fellow at the Norwegian Institute for Foreign Policy (NUPI):

        “Much has been said that the regions of the North should be free from the increased tension between Russia and NATO in the field of security policy, because relations with Russia are good in the north. But NATO asked Norway to strengthen its contribution, and Norway did, while Russia expected Norway to resist this request. ”


        2. "". The Norwegian Minister of Defense, representative of the Höyr (Right) party, Frank Bakke-Jensen, believes that the presence of the US Marines in Norway confirms the position that our allies will come to our rescue if we need it. And that NATO’s training and training of allies on Norwegian soil demonstrate to NATO that we take our obligations to protect our territory seriously. However, he sees no reason for the Russians to somehow react to this. "" ""

          This is all according to the old NATO schemes. Since the first Cold War. According to all plans of that time, in Norway, brigade and division kits for American units were stored in preserved form. Which, in the event of the outbreak of hostilities with the USSR, would be mothballed by US personnel arriving by air.

          Something like that is likely to be fulfilled, IMHO.

    I wonder how you can scare Russia - these "brave" heroes. On paper and in cinema they have no equal in the world. Let the children play the ears in wars, let them show the allies what they are capable of when they don’t fight the enemy, who doesn’t have an umbrella on the mountain. Although in games, a complete victory is guaranteed for them. The allies will be glad - that in this "war" there are no unkilled and not wounded. If an accident happens - it wakes up not our fault. From them you can - whatever you want to wait, it’s possible they will be blamed.
