"Give us air defense, but more!" The Baltic states ask the US for weapons


The leaders of the Baltic countries will ask the United States to send more troops and strengthen air defense on the eastern flank of NATO to contain Russia when they meet with President Donald Trump on Tuesday (April 3), officials said
- writes online edition.

Statements about the "Russian threat and aggression" from time to time heard from Western countries, mostly from the Baltic states and Poland. The Russian side has repeatedly stressed that Moscow will never attack the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance.

EurActiv also reports referring to a high-ranking Lithuanian official who wished to remain anonymous, that “three Baltic leaders are asking the United States to send more long-range Patriot missiles for use during military exercises ... they (the Baltic States) also want to become part of a larger European anti-missile shield NATO".

      More pampers, why air defense? Missiles will not help, but they need diapers for a long time.

      Dmitriy hi
      Here the question just begs from the practical plane.
      They will allocate some junk to the Baltic sisters, even if it is theoretically assumed that the new “Patriot” with its combat crew - in whose garden will it be located?

        Allocate some Baltic sisters

        hi good morning. Why allocate for free? It took them 20 years to create a more or less noticeable airspace control system - the data is leaking to the CP of Western Europe air defense, there is active air defense there. If you want more, buy, and you’ll buy some junk.
        You won’t deny Amerov’s gliders in the mind and ability to play for a long time: in '97 they invited the Balts to join the Regional Airspace Initiative, it grew into BaltNet: they donated a little equipment, 40 lyam, they forced the rest to buy: one radar costs ~ 16. Nothing personal, now I think the story will repeat itself with active air defense. the Americans achieved the goal: they raised money, welded it to themselves, well, they put it under the first blow, all honestly and they were warned.
        The idea of ​​joining the RAI 404s sounded seems last year ...

        Now there are completely different possibilities, ways and methods of warfare than they were 70 years ago. Yes, and the European in itself "crushed" as it is - pampered and very susceptible to stress))) In general, it's not the Baltic countries that these Patriots are asking for. They were given the command "to ask in unison and earnestly beg," so they beg. If the United States, on its own initiative, will drag the Patriots there, then here you can run into Moscow’s opposition in whatever Cuba is, and if the United States “yields” to the insistent requests of the aborigines of the Baltic states, then it seems like all claims to the aborigines.

          Now there are completely different possibilities, ways and methods of warfare than they were 70 years ago.

          Namely, what is the point of running through the forests and looking for these forest brothers, if it is possible to solve the problem by using nuclear weapons in these forests? So, I don’t need anything in those Baltic territories, let there be a radioactive infection there for a while. Indeed, in the event of a major mess with NATO, personnel will have to be protected.

    It will end with a lightning capture of the Baltic states. I’m not joking. And I don’t give a damn about those NATO members who will be there. They will load the barges in the morning and send them home. Sooner or later, all this fuss should end in a hot short-term collision. The whole question is the patience of the Kremlin. the moment will come when it will happen. Snot, screams will fly from all channels. To defend the Baltic states is like putting a head in the mouth of a bear. And they will not be able to help. Remember my words. So it will be. Any accumulation of NATO members there is like Send hostages to their warriors. If the Pentagon suits this scenario, then wait for the Americans and the British to be reduced to a minimum. They will drive NATO slag out. And they will defiantly import weapons that threaten the strategic balance. Until Moscow has patience.

    About Ukraine, Vladimir Vladimirovich and Solovyov, too, were "repeatedly emphasized." But it’s how it turned out. The Baltic states, in their right, have grounds for saying, “God saves the safe”

    "..the three Baltic leaders are asking the US more often to send Patriot long-range anti-aircraft missiles for use in military exercises ... they (the Baltic countries) also want to become part of NATO’s larger European missile defense shield." - the three leaders followed the example of the “lady with low social responsibility”, which urgently demands: “give more missiles with a larger radius! I will tear stockings on them”! Expensive pleasure for torn stockings.

    This is where the interests of the Americans and their servants clash.
    First of all, the Americans want to earn money on their servants, and not on the turnover — to lay the heads of their citizens for the lives of their servants.

    For no one will the United States put their air defense. And no one will cover up within NATO, at least until the deployment of large military bases or during major exercises. But nobody needs the deployment of NATO bases in the region either - they will all be within the Iskander launch and can be destroyed in one gulp.

    So what's the problem? Let Russia make a claim, and the right to part of the Baltic states as the successor of the Russian Empire and make it their territory? But the trouble is ... what then will have to give the Kaliningrad region, and many other territories annexed after the Second World War. So how will it be done precedent in the direction of the Russian Federation, then everyone will want the same ... so your promise .. to the void. If it were all so easy, we would have done it long ago ...
