Military Review

Consumables of the American War

38
The Eastern European countries of NATO are forced under US pressure to pursue policies that threaten their own security.




At present, the so-called "Armed Forces of Ukraine", which in reality are illegal gangs of the illegitimate Kiev regime, have practically exhausted the internal resources of building up their combat capabilities. This is especially true for sophisticated weapons and military equipment, such as Tanks, self-propelled artillery, infantry fighting vehicles, helicopters and airplanes.

The figures voiced in Kiev, according to which two thousand tanks and other armored vehicles could be thrown into the new offensive in the Donbass - this is practically everything that we managed to scrape together at Soviet storage bases and somehow, cannibalized, to repair. This amount is barely enough to conduct one major military operation, after which the “Ukrainian army” will inevitably be left with nothing.

Due to the internal production capabilities of the regime, this problem cannot be solved. Suffice it to say that in the four years of the “patriotic war”, Ukraine was not honored to build a single new combat aircraft, and the release of new tanks for its own army barely reaches ten vehicles a year.

The American curators of Kiev, who are extremely interested in maintaining and increasing the combat capability of the "Armed Forces of Ukraine", are certainly worried about this situation. However, in view of the serious military-political risks, they are afraid to solve this problem by direct military supplies of modern NATO weapons to Ukraine. Even an almost symbolic action with the transfer to Kiev of a very limited number of American anti-tank Javelin complexes has been dragging on for more than a year.

Meanwhile, the US military leadership has already worked out a channel for the mass supply of weapons to problem regions according to the so-called gray schemes - through dummy individuals and legal entities. Moreover, such weapons, which can not be identified as Western. The main base of such supplies are the former member countries of the defense union of the socialist states - the Warsaw Pact, as well as some ex-republics of the USSR. So, for example, a week ago, Syrian troops seized from the militants in the Damascus area T-72 tanks, which were previously in service with the army of Kazakhstan. Moreover, the militants themselves confirmed that this equipment was transferred to them by representatives of the US Army. But the bulk of Soviet-style armament was acquired by the US military in Eastern European countries, such as Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Slovakia, etc.

Today, along with Syria, these streams of weapons are increasingly actively canalizing towards Ukraine. It seems that it is in this way that Washington plans to contribute to the Kiev regime in addressing the growing shortage of heavy military equipment. Moreover, at present it is already possible to say that such supplies are beginning to acquire a massive character.

Just a month ago, a leak occurred in the Ukrainian media, which, in the heat of the dismantling of their owners, had given out information about supplies of several hundred infantry fighting vehicles BMP-1 to Ukraine. This armored vehicle was received from the warehouses of the Czech army, then repaired at one of the Czech factories and transported to Ukraine.

In early May, the well-known western edition of "Jane's Defense Weekly" reported on the further development of this topic. This time we are talking about the massive supply to Ukraine of self-propelled artillery installations 2С1 "Gvozdika" from the stocks of the Polish armed forces. The mentioned SAU must also be pre-repaired at the same Czech company.

Both of these information leaks related to Ukraine took place within the framework of the same “gray scheme” of supplies. What gives grounds to assume that there are other similar schemes in which the secrecy regime is better observed and about which we, respectively, know nothing. Thus, it is quite possible to assume that the actual volume of arms supplies to the Kiev regime, including heavy types of military equipment, is much higher than that seen in the media in terms of quantity and nomenclature.

Given the fact that Kiev’s military-political activity is fully and comprehensively controlled by the US government, it is impossible to imagine that massive arms deliveries to the conflict region could be carried out without the knowledge of Washington. It is obvious that it was with his submission, and perhaps in other cases under his pressure, that the governments of a number of countries in Eastern Europe are forced to sanction such dangerous acts.

Why dangerous, too, is quite understandable. The Ukrainian conflict, which is tightly connected with the global geopolitical confrontation of the leading powers of the world, is unpredictably explosive. And in the case of its escalation, the countries closest to Ukraine are naturally the most threatened. To the west of the Ukrainian border are the countries of Eastern Europe.

The ones who today, either of their own free will, or under pressure from the United States, are beginning to increasingly cover Ukraine with weapons. That is, in fact, kindle a fire of war in this country. That same war, which, if it continues to grow, will inevitably strike primarily in these countries. In addition, small and fragile enough.

In terms of logic and common sense, Eastern European states should be the last to be interested in such a development. But in fact, it turns out that they contribute to this even more than the United States, because not so much American, but precisely Eastern European weapons enter the Ukraine.

It turns out that the governments of these countries in one of the most sensitive issues for their national security pursue a policy diametrically opposed to their own security. It is unlikely that they would understand the danger for them to further instigate the war in Ukraine. And they did it on their own initiative, for some very small money.

It is quite obvious that they are forced to do so because the United States demands this from them. Those who do not just give a damn about the security of Eastern European countries and Europe as a whole, but would very much like to see a more active role of this continent in advancing American interests as far as possible to the East. What the United States can achieve only by direct involvement of the local states in the ongoing war in Ukraine.

But if everything is more or less clear with American interests and actions, that they harmoniously coincide, then with their European class, everything is strictly the opposite. It turns out that they are not their own masters and have only one right - to fulfill the will of their overseas master as quickly as possible. Even in those cases when for them it is fraught with the saddest consequences. There is simply no other fate for the expendable material of world geopolitics.

        Given that all the countries of the former Warsaw Pact included in NATO, sooner or later completely switch to NATO weapons, they will have to utilize the arsenals left over from the Soviet legacy. So they are disposed of through hot spots. This method of solving geopolitical problems for the United States is almost free i.e. little expensive. So there is no "charity" here, since the market is being cleansed to the delight of arms corporations, and this promises them considerable "profit".

            Obviously, they are forced to do so because This is what the United States requires of them.
            You have to pay for everything sooner or later, in vain if they have been fed for so many years? The "free cheese" ends even for Ukraine, although it is not yet a NATO member, but they believe that it is on such a "hook" that it will not come off:

              US can only achieve direct involvement of these countries in the ongoing war in Ukraine.

              The Vietnam War is the last, where the Shtatovs participated in "full scale" in ground operations. According to General Norman Schwarzkopf, the commander of the battalion of American ground forces, direct U.S. military intervention in the intra-Vietnam conflict was “Terrible mistake”: “We even pushed them aside, saying,“ Get out of the way, little yellow-faced brother. The good guys are already here, the cavalry has arrived, now we will go out of town and defeat the Indians, so you just get away, ” terrible mistake. Awful mistake! "
              By the end of 1965, there were about 185 American troops in South Vietnam. In the next three years, the contingent was significantly increased. reaching at the peak of the war 540 thousand people. (wikipedia).

    Poland, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Romania ... Trying to please the United States and of course to earn extra money by selling old equipment, they are digging a hole for themselves. But they don’t think about it until they arrived. In addition, Poland, Hungary and Romania have their own territorial interests in Ukraine. This Sabbath will not end in good.

      I completely agree. For some reason, the author decided that the countries of Eastern Europe are extremely interested in maintaining peace both in Ukraine and between the Russian Federation and Ukraine, and this is not so at all. When the argument initially does not have the correct thesis, then the whole construction is not logical.

    I do not understand in any way such articles about the "consumables" of the United States .... For whom are they written and published on the VO? The most “consumable material” from these articles is “not cold and not hot” - they just don’t care ... Well, they will burn in the fire of a nuclear war .... well, so the Russians in it will burn, and the whole world, perhaps it’s burned, spit then at all, and when it will be, and whether it will be, in general ....- so they reason ....

    I confused him with his colleague on this phrase. Both are not aware of the situation. But in every possible way they work for Kiev.
    The creation of a false image + hatreds-will play a bad service.

    Do not buy. They will not supply for nothing, but there’s nothing to buy. Believe ukroSMI - do not respect yourself ...
    Americans will not pay for someone else's supplies. They hardly pay for theirs. So - there will be no strengthening of the Armed Forces, there will be no massive attack on the Donbass. Just nothing ...

    The author did not even mention against whom the West is waging its war, proving already proven 1000 times that the Ukrainians and the rest of the former socialist brothers are consumables, but they are not bad themselves, but America is putting pressure on them, therefore.
    To whom does he prove this, why ...

    But even here, in a sterile review, such pearls are allowed, for example, "Eastern European NATO countries are forced under pressure from the United States to pursue policies that threaten their own security."

    Yay-yah, how sorry for them ...
    Like, I’ll do it bad for myself, I’ll place the US base at my own expense, well, fools!

    They, these obedient ones, will not do anything to their detriment.
    They have a standard of living, even among the poorest, such as Romania, and now they are much higher than in Russia. They want to preserve and increase it, and the bases can only help them in this.

    And that military equipment from these countries falls into Ukraine, and then fights against Russia, and this is not surprising.
    After all, Russia itself supplies diesel fuel for tanks, tank engines, Kamaz, directly to dear partner Peter Alekseevich.
    And the trade turnover of Russia - Ukraine is constantly growing.

    In vain, therefore, he proves what bad former allies.

    Is Russia better?

      You won’t be asked too much. They lost some of their sovereignty by joining the EU, and lost the rest, allowing them to drag themselves into NATO. Erdogan was lucky, managed to fly away from the airfield when the tanks of the "revolutionaries" jumped in. And this is only because he began to establish relations with Russia a little. He understands that if he announces about leaving NATO - he can’t live. NATO will push all the buttons, there are many more left,
      In the United States, the public debt "rolls over" and Trump will force to pay 100% for the maintenance of their bases, the camps where they are deployed. "Freebie" for you ends, you have to pay for everything with interest and in full. This is not Russia, it will not "write off" debts. And in case of a "big" war, you will go first echelon.

      The private owner has a higher profit, because it is in the first place, and state interests are not in the second. For the sake of tax cuts, he will "go" to offshore companies, all the more so, they will give "wherever possible" bribes to them and sell their products. to anyone. The privatization of heavy industry is a loss of control over the economy.

    I have a feeling that authors like this are trying to prove something to the mirror.
    It is very easy. They all convince themselves that Eastern European countries are putting themselves in jeopardy, that being in NATO is contrary to their interests.
    Oh yes, the mirror is easy to convince.
    But let me tell you what arguments the inhabitants of Eastern Europe bring.
    During the Cold War, when the USSR had military parity with the United States, at least one bomb fell on a NATO country?
    Not? So do not tell today.
    Who has been attacked by Russia since 1991? Only to its CIS allies - Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine.
    For those who did not have time to join NATO.
    And the same Kazakhstan is afraid of a repetition of the "Russian spring" at home.
    Stupid, empty, meaningless mantras. You can convince yourself, no more. We demonstrated to our neighbors how we respect their territorial integrity. You can continue to shout angrily - it will get nasty. Believe me, no one has long believed, do not even listen.
    And do not transfer anger to me. I just relayed the opinion of the opposite side. Let Putin convince the neighbors of peace. But judging by the same Kazakhstan, it’s too late.

      NATO bombs fell on Yugoslavia, which did not want to join NATO. But Russia did not attack Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine. She was there legally.
      So lie better in your own EU, maybe they will.

      In 1995, NATO’s first large-scale military action, Operation Mindful Force, was held in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The reason for the massive bombing strike on the military potential of the self-proclaimed Republika Srpska was the explosion in the central market of Sarajevo, in which the Serbs were accused.

      In 1999, in violation of the UN Charter and without the sanction of the UN Security Council, the Allied Force military operation was carried out against Yugoslavia. The official occasion for the outbreak of hostilities was announced the presence of Serbian troops in Kosovo and Metohija. Serbian authorities were charged with ethnic cleansing.

      During the operation, NATO forces carried out, according to various sources, from 37,5 to 38,4 thousand sorties, during which more than 900 targets were attacked on the territory of Serbia and Montenegro, more than 21 thousand tons of explosives were dropped. In the course of airstrikes, forbidden types of ammunition with radioactive impurities, mainly depleted uranium, were used (U 238).

      In 2001, the military operation "Enduring Freedom" was launched in Afghanistan, which was attended by the US armed forces and the contingent of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) under NATO command. Until now, about 87 ISAF troops remain in Afghanistan.

      Since 2001, about 92 thousand people have been killed in Afghanistan, of which more than 26 thousand civilians, and about 100 thousand people have been injured.

      In 2011, an international coalition led by NATO conducted a military operation in Libya. The operation of the North Atlantic Alliance was called "United Defender".

      According to some reports, during the operation 25 thousand people were killed, 60 thousand people were injured, 3 thousand people were mutilated.

          Moldovans, Georgians and Ukrainians, as well as you, the Baltic states, were citizens of the USSR, and before that, subjects of the Russian Empire. It was you who illegally chopped off the Russian land, taking advantage of the temporary weakness of the Russian government.
          As for the "squeeze", it was not there, but the lawful presence of Russian peacekeepers in Transnistria, Abkhazia and North Ossetia, confirmed by intergovernmental agreements, in regions where the people declared independence from Moldova and Georgia, respectively. In the Crimea, our Black Sea Fleet and units of the Russian Armed Forces also stood on legitimate grounds backed by treaties.
          What, intergovernmental agreements for you and other national minorities of the former USSR is not a legal basis?
          And is it Russia’s fault that its peacekeepers were attacked?
          It is Russia to blame for the fact that Bandera’s evil was going to clear all of Russian Crimea and Donbass. Is it Russia’s fault that the Mulev nationalists wanted to unite with Romania, spitting on the opinion of the Russian-speaking population?
          Was it Russia who introduced the institution of aliens, thereby conducting genocide of numerous, though not titular, nationality?

          So then wag your tongue about decency?

        NATO bombs fell on Yugoslavia, which did not want to join NATO.

        So she essentially was! On November 14, November 1951, Yugoslavia and the United States signed an indefinite agreement "On Mutual Security"! Before that, Yugoslavia was a member of the Balkan Pact / NATO affiliate / along with Greece and Turkey! It is known that on the basis of the aforementioned treaty, Bandera, anti-Soviet propaganda, all kinds of espionage things were transported from the West through northern Yugoslavia to Ukraine! Italian Prime Minister Alcide de Gasperi noted in January 1953 of the year: “Yugoslavia, having signed a military-political treaty with the United States, de facto joined the North Atlantic Alliance. Probably, the assistance of the anti-Titan and nationalist opposition in Yugoslavia, taking into account the role of this state in countering Moscow, is less relevant than any support for Tito’s policy. ”

      1. In 2008, Georgia attacked Russian peacekeepers. This alone was enough for direct Russian intervention.
      2. The hope that Russia will not use weapons just because it has not done this before is not justified. On the contrary, Russia used weapons on 08.08.08. Russia returned Crimea. Russia sided with the legitimate government of the SAR .... And now - you can hope that in the event of a real threat to its security, Russia will not make the Iskander volley.

    What is happening in Ukraine is natural. In Ukraine, there is very little strong male energy. This country is a woman. With all the ensuing consequences (... and flowing in too). This is not a feature of the people and the population. THIS IS A FEATURE OF ITS TERRITORY. Nothing can be done, and nothing can be changed. This state of affairs has always been and will always be. Neither God, nor the King, nor the Hero will be able to change the status quo of Ukraine. Learn the Laws of the Universe.

    Someone above said: "And this is now called analytics?" - a rhetorical question.
    I’d like to figure out what the transfer of this equipment to Ukraine in a possible conflict with the republics would mean.
    How many more vehicles can you drag from the EU? How many trained specialists for this technique are in Ukraine?
    And finally - make an assessment WHEN ???
    That would be like analytics ...

    I ask Bulgaria not to interfere. There are no weapons in Bulgaria for a long time. All chopped.

    Madhouse. Immediately begin preparations for the formation of a planetary government, the creation of a charter of life on Earth, followed by the abolition of borders between countries.
