The Pentagon has reduced the number of operations performed from the air base Incirlik

27
The US military has sharply reduced the number of combat operations that were performed from the Turkish airbase Incirlik, and are also considering the possibility of reducing the personnel stationed there, reports TASS Post by the Wall Street Journal.




According to the newspaper, a squadron of A-10 attack aircraft was relocated from the Turkish base to Afghanistan. The number of families of American military personnel stationed at the base gradually decreases. “Currently, American fighter jets F-22 Raptor and F-15 Eagle, as well as refueling aircraft, are based in Ingirlik,” the material says.

According to the American military representative, "the issue of reducing the use of the Turkish airbase has been under consideration for some time."

The newspaper reminds that “the tension in relations between Ankara and Washington is related to the fact that Turkey is seriously concerned about the United States support for the Syrian Kurds from the Popular Self-Defense Forces (SNC)”. The Turkish government has repeatedly stated that Washington is making a mistake by supplying weapons to the formations associated in Ankara with militants by the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). According to the Turkish leadership, the Kurdish American weapon may be directed against Turkey.

        Yes, I have already chosen the direction, judging by the actions.
        And at the regional level is quite strong,
        the rest is a matter of time.

        Yes, something is imperceptible.


        NATO command creates a mechanism in Europe to reduce the time it takes to deploy troops to the borders of Russia. Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Colonel General Alexander Fomin told about this the day before.

        "A new priority for the military-political leadership of NATO has been the improvement of the logistics and transport infrastructure within Europe, the creation of the so-called" military Schengen. Its essence is to minimize the time it takes to deploy troops to the Russian borders, "Fomin told the newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda "(official publication of the Russian Ministry of Defense). According to the deputy minister, stockpiles of weapons, ammunition and food are being created in various regions of Europe for the operational deployment of an additional force grouping that is ten times higher than the US troops deployed in Europe. “Eight coordination centers have been created in Poland, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia to organize the reception, deployment and deployment of military contingents,” said General Fomin.

          That’s the essence of the fact that more powerful Europeans are turning their noses,
          took on those who can’t think at all.

    Turkey is slowly moving closer to Russia, as far as possible?

    Turkey (read Erdogan) is slowly pushing Americans out of its territory. Erdogan probably will not forget to death that American intelligence services loomed behind the attempted coup. I hope that the time will come when the Americans will be driven out (driven away) from many countries.

      and I didn’t forget about the attempted coup of Osman Pasha ...
      Of course, we need to cool the relations between the Turks and mattresses on hand ... we must put pressure on Erdosha as soon as possible to enter the "Stream" ...

        Andrey good afternoon soldier
        Schaub was not told there, but the flow of money + an alternative route.
        The "Sultan" is so far independent of the striped politicians, which can be what happens.
        You have to keep your ears open with such a "friend", but GDP does not have many options. Geyropa sings in unison with the Yankees, and she also tries to croak in her own way, so we will do what we can.

            Gas is still needed by the geyrope and the cheaper, the better. On the extreme pipe is not ah, repairs are needed, cap investments, that no one wants to invest! So the joint venture 2 will be completed.
            Now just work and wait ... any result is better than uncertainty!

                  no, there’s the question of attracting foreign companies. 49% want to sell, but not to own, but with the right to manage supposedly ... and the tech with a scythe (timosha) yells that gunpowder wants to secretly sell the gas transport system of Russia, and accuses the pigman of betrayal ... big top

                        Hi soldier
                        Events "smoothly" t.s. are developing. The pipe will still be sold, because Without gas, few need this asset! Anyway, we'll take a look.
                        Gas stories they are noticeable, and sometimes "funny" are.

      I'm on a NIVA through snowdrifts and so climbed, but in the parking lot I almost depicted a ballerina !!! with the prospect of becoming a swan dying!
      With gas, we are fine, in which case there is always a reserve, 5-6 days, cylinders! We often fails electrician! I also keep the generator ready!
      So with straw - you don’t have to heat with firewood ... I only keep it for the smokehouse and barbecue! Village - s, you have to be prepared for everything!
