Media: NATO cannot protect Europe without US involvement

36

The German Analytical Institute, which advises the German government and parliament on foreign and security policy - the Science and Politics Foundation (SWP) - in its report states that NATO cannot fulfill its tasks without the participation of the United States. This is written by the Polish portal wnp.pl.

Currently, the document says, the Alliance is experiencing an extremely difficult period in its stories, and he is shaken by internal divisions, and many of its members are not sufficiently armed.



At the same time, without the USA, the bloc is not capable of much. In particular, the function of nuclear deterrence, if any, will be forced to take on Britain and France.

In the same way, the United States cannot be replaced in the political sense, since no country has such weight in the international arena. Theoretically, the union of France, Great Britain and Germany could become an analogue of America, but there are too many contradictions between them.

The report indicates that in the short and medium term there is no alternative to NATO that (the organization) could boast the same experience and influence, as well as the geographical advantage of the length from Canada to Norway and Turkey. At the same time, the document offers the German leadership to strengthen the European pillar of the alliance while establishing transatlantic relations.

Against this background, it is worth recalling that the Turkish authorities refused to support the NATO directive on sending troops to Poland and the Baltic states to "protect against the Russian threat."

    All clear. Instead of the Yankees go home, they offer the government to shout: Yankees to Wellcome.
    Well, and what kind of independence and sovereignty of Germany can then be said?

          The bull's eye. The United States has long been the most dangerous friend, who is far more dangerous than any potential adversary.

        From refugees from Africa and the Middle East. Only here we need not military force, but a sensible EU foreign policy. And with this, the EU is tight.

      German sovereignty? What are you talking about? Germany is "de facto" and "de jure" occupied by the United States. In the economy, the Germans can still kick, but in the military and political spheres only until a harsh shout from the United States.

        NATO concerns about "joint defense" and "containment" are a myth for the population of NATO countries and for the preservation of a "political face" on a global scale.
        But it’s amazing that you too are easily led into this propaganda and do not see NATO as a serious threat to our security. It’s not digging trenches on our borders with the purpose of sitting in them.
        Shoigu in this respect is more realistic and extremely frank. ---
        NATO's military activity at our borders has reached an unprecedented level since the Cold War. The alliance's policy is aimed at strengthening its advanced military presence on the eastern flank. For this, the Alliance is actively using the myth of the Russian threat, ”said Sergey Shoigu, confirming his words with concrete and eloquent facts.
        The scale of operational and combat training near the borders of Russia and Belarus is expanding, and their intensity is growing.
        Block countries work out offensive missions. The alliance actively connects non-aligned countries to these events.
        Geographic areas for major military exercises are being chosen closer to Russian borders.
        It is significant that in recent weeks the number of forces and assets involved in it has been increased.
        A significant increase in NATO intelligence activity in the Baltic and the Black Sea region is recorded. This year alone, Russian aerospace forces flew to intercept potential violators of the state border more than 120 times.
        The tension is growing in connection with the actions of the West to increase military mobility, the ultimate goal of which is to ensure the rapid movement of American troops and forces across Europe.
        To organize the reception and deployment of reinforcement troops in the Baltic countries and Eastern European countries, coordination centers have been formed, advanced airfields have been prepared, seaports have been modernized, and a system for the early storage of property and weapons is being created.
        Improvement of infrastructure is carried out in order to minimize the time for the transfer of troops from deep rear to external borders and thereby increase offensive features.https: //function.mil.ru/news_page/country/more.htm? id = 12201171% 40egNews

          This is all, of course, good. Those. bad, but I want to say something else.
          A war when a response arrives for NATO is considered unacceptable. It is in words that they are ready to "tear and throw," and when 200 echelons go to their countries, I think they will quickly reach a critical level. The United States wants to fight Russia to the last European. And everyone wants to sit out one after the other. Only the roles have already been painted, who and when should clear the living space for the Anglo-Saxons. First Russia, then China. And the United States understands this very well too. So they need to provoke some Ukraine into a war with the Russian Federation, and sit out themselves.

    On the other hand, not only one country, not only NATO, but the whole world, does not create the same EU as many problems as the United States creates. So the real value of the United States for the EU is far from straightforward. Just the other day, on the German television channel ARD, I read the results of a survey of residents of Germany regarding their attitude to the United States — about 60% of the respondents said that the United States is not a friendly country for Germany.

      Your post is not entirely clear. You write that by 2050 "Europe" will shrink by 13% of the population.
      NATO without the USA is a tank without a tower, like something big, but it’s not adapted to fight. Somehow they were already trying to fight Libya - a week later the shells were over, they ran to the Pentagon to ask for a loan.

    "NATO cannot defend Europe without US participation" - protect from whom? From Iran? As American politicians recently argued, the deployment of missile defense in Europe is against Iranian missiles.
    It's time to defend Europe about the best friend - the United States. Having such a friend - no enemies.

    Whom and from whom is NATO going to defend? There is no second Hitler and can not be seen yet on the horizon. From Ukraine, it is not possible to create a replacement for Germany due to total theft and the inability to create anything. Americans can attack Europe, they are already in it. They can attack themselves and in the States they have shown it. Perhaps NATO is afraid that North Korea, having nuclear weapons through a wormhole, could send a nuclear missile to NATO's den, and even to Washagenton. With God's help, instead of a rocket from North Korea, this will make the volcano, God's mercy, from Yellowstone.

    NATO is the essence of a large collective farm, assembled from inveterate "kulaks" (this is a positive term meaning a strong business executive). That is why everyone there wants to pull the blanket over themselves. When there was no threat, they all developed their economy together under the leadership of the elder, mindlessly placing all the responsibility on him. And it was beneficial to him, because NATO is, first of all, an ECONOMIC system for bringing industry and manufacturers to the same standard, again, set by the elders. The elder one produced and sold, at least weapons, at least support, at least technology. Those who were eager to go upstaged and simply took away sales markets, contracts, and went bankrupt (for example, France). All this under the slogan of the main enemy. Now that everyone suddenly felt independent, they simply do not know what to do with it. They have forgotten what it is like to be self-reliant and defend themselves. They have lost their national authenticity in the swamp of tolerance. The older flabby and dull, and all his vykrymosh are looking for a vector of development. But the guidance systems are outdated. Therefore, in military terms (and this was deliberately planned by the senior), they are all without him, whatever he may be, just a bunch of eaten-up, arrogant and incompetent functionaries. Of course they can do something, they have something. But being under external protection for many years turned them from soldiers to farmers. Their inflated 500 million population is just an appearance. The overwhelming majority of Europeans are immigrants and people who have never held weapons in their hands, who did not know the hardships of service. Definitely not the defenders of their countries. By the way, the same applies to the States (practical shooting and shooting range have little relation to real military operations). Therefore, NATO is good only for its economic activities for the "beholder" and assistants. The rest is fiction ...
