Before the onset of summer, the Norwegian authorities will decide on the possibility of extending and expanding the program of the stay of the American marines in the country, reports TASS.


The Norwegian government intends to extend the duration of their stay in the US Marines


The Pentagon "would like to extend the period (the presence of the marines), and would like to know if we would agree to an increase (their number in Norway)," Defense Minister Frank Bakke-Jensen told Defense News.

We will consider these questions and answer until the summer,
added on.

The publication recalls that "a battalion of marines - about 300 people - was stationed on a six-month rotational basis in January last year in the Vernes garrison near Trondheim." This was reported as a pilot program for a year, “in the framework of military cooperation between Norway and the United States.”

The commander of the Marine Corps, General Robert Neller, believes that the corps needs to improve its preparation for operations in winter conditions,
quotes the newspaper of his interlocutor.

On Tuesday, Pentagon chief James Mattis received a Norwegian counterpart. At the meeting, Bakke-Jensen, among other things, said that Oslo is concerned about "the increasing incidence of Russia's aggressive behavior in the region."

        The Pentagon has long said that the United States, when attacking Russia from the territory of NATO countries, no government, no NATO countries will even ask for any permission!
        The United States will start at its initiative TMV with Russia - and the NATO countries will in fact join it involuntarily. This is Washington’s tactics for achieving US strategic goals.

          The world is changing. The Americans would start, behave more wisely, and they continue to become impudent, than bring their collapse closer. If they had not brought so much misfortune around the world, they could even be pitied

            Not so much the world is changing. Historical patterns are the same.

            Joining NATO means surrendering your country to the USA and making it hostage to Washington’s policy in the person of the Pentagon!
            No laws have been written for du * crayfish and national traitors. They are driven only by their own greed in the mercantile hope that maybe they will carry them from personal responsibility!

              When Norway joined NATO in 1949, it was a justifiable step.

                What is a justified step ?!
                WWII in 1949 was gone! There was no Warsaw Pact!

                  Don't make me emotions wink It was clear that the world was entering the phase of military confrontation between the USSR and the USA, and it would be hotter or colder, no one could know. Everyone made their choice. And who guesses and who doesn’t, you know. This is now, after half a century we are so reasonable

                    Not a fig!
                    There must be a specific reason for everything that needs to be specifically understood for the upcoming forecast.
                    I think that Norway, just as the country defeated by Germany in WWII, surrendered to the United States in advance - already in the 1949 year - having unscrupulously entered the Pentagon's NATO, for which it had to pay financially and politically then.

                    Hitler's conquest of Denmark, Norway.

        Norwegians have to do with who is asking them

        Hehe ...... wassat
        The Norwegians have SOMEONE to serve both in the army (tiny) and in the Navy, which is more ...
        There is no one to work there - the harsh northern people suffer from a severe demographic problem. The number of marriages between native Norwegian couples is scanty. The main share in the issue of increasing the population is played by foreigners. And it doesn’t matter where they came from. As a result, the southern part of the country, including 3 of the main cities of Norway - Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim, is filled with teenagers - descendants of those who came from Pakistan, Sudan, Iraq, Afghanistan.

    Relying on one battalion, you can quickly deploy more serious forces and means. And you can not ask stupid minks, they will pass for extras. Minks their sovereignty, like a rug to the States lined so that the shoes are not soiled.

    What are you saying! In 1995, the frigate "Oliver H. Perry" came to us, the Yankees came to school, which I graduated for prom. They started pestering graduates, inviting them to dance and pawing below the waist. The guys endured 30 minutes - guests, foreigners, then cleaned their faces. I then took these amers from the commandant’s office. Even their ship commander said - "Received what they deserve" .....

    This is not the intention of the Norgs; it was the overseas owners who ordered it.
