“We remove US nuclear weapons from Europe - the Russian Federation will withdraw the Iskanders from Kaliningrad” - Bundestag deputy

60

To make Europeans feel safe, nuclear should be removed weapon from Europe. Otherwise, an armed conflict with the use of atomic weapons can destroy the continent.


This opinion was expressed on the pages of the German edition of Die Welt by member of the Bundestag committee on foreign affairs Jurgen Trittin.

He is the representative of the Union 90 / Greens party in the German parliament.

Jurgen Trittin believes that in order to ensure the security of Europe it is necessary to remove American nuclear weapons from the continent in exchange for the withdrawal of Russian Iskander systems from the territory of the Kaliningrad Region.

As you can see, the presence of OTRK Iskander near Kaliningrad worries European politicians. The deputy believes that the Russian Federation will withdraw its OTRK in exchange for the withdrawal of American nuclear weapons from the European continent.

The German parliamentarian recalled the era of the Cold War. Then there was an increase in armaments, but the world did not become safer from this. Instead of security, we got an arms race and a constant risk of a nuclear conflict. According to the deputy, if the war had begun then, it would have become the last in stories humanity.



The German parliamentarian does not agree with the arguments of the US ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, who assures Europeans of the need to preserve the US nuclear arsenal in Europe.

Trittin emphasizes that the decision on how to use nuclear weapons stationed in Europe is taken solely in Washington. But, in his opinion, Trump can not be trusted:

We should not rely on Trump. This showed a way out of the INF Treaty.

    It doesn't work that way. Remaining missile defense bases in Europe, medium-range missiles, aviation, infrastructure, rotational forces. Because of them, the Iskander is deployed, and other weapons will be deployed because of them. Because of the NATO factor, the risk of nuclear war will always be great.

          Leopard change his spots.

          Can you give an example of "Everything can be agreed upon"?

          And what about the one whose house was destroyed at the time of the ongoing agreements?
          Who rebuilt the destroyed house?
          The Germans burned thousands of villages. Millions of houses.
          Our grandfathers and fathers (whom they survived), but basically all the same grandmothers and mothers themselves rebuilt their homes.
          I am talking about those who lived in villages and villages.

          So that the aggressor must be destroyed at that moment as soon as he decided to attack.

          And you need to agree with your wife about whose turn it is to take out the garbage.

              Just smells (sees evidence in the country) a German from the "green" party - a member of the Bundestag Foreign Policy Committee Jurgen Trittin, that in Germany it really "stinks" of an inevitable new war between the West and Russia.

              All these NATO movements of troops and equipment under the leadership of the Pentagon are getting closer and closer to Russian borders. And no one in Washington / Pentagon will ask German Germans about the beginning of the war with the Russian Federation.

                You are right, US nuclear weapons in Europe are not the only reason for the West-Russia confrontation. It is precisely with the strengthening of NATO near the borders with Russia that it can cause a military clash, for which a small spark is enough, which can be a provocation from the former partners in the "Warsaw Pact" on the orders of the puppeteers, who, as it were, will remain on the sidelines, but stand up for "unreasonable children. ". And in principle, both France and the "Englishwoman" have national nuclear weapons, and this did not prevent in the past from agreeing on the rules of conduct.

      Quite right, but this is not specifically about NATO, but about the military bases of the minke whales, of which there are 100500 in the former FRG! That is why
      Trittin emphasizes that the decision on how to use nuclear weapons stationed in Europe is taken solely in Washington.
      In principle, he is right - the minke whales on Europe and its condition do not care about the high bell tower, so for starters you need to get all the American bases out of there in the same way as the Union brought out, but this is from the realm of fantasy.

    The beginning of the German "green" is good, but the ending corresponds to his political views.

He began in the unification of the Maoist Communist Union, the Trotskyist International Marxist group and left-wing radical students.

    Moreover, here are the Russian Iskanders, which are located on the European part of the Russian territory, so that Russia should remove them from this part of its territory somewhere in exchange for if America removes its nuclear weapons from bases that are located thousands of kilometers from America near borders of Russia in Europe. It will be equivalent and evenly only if Russia also removes its nuclear weapons from bases in foreign territories, which are located thousands of kilometers from Russia near the US borders. What, you say that Russia has neither such bases nor such weapons on foreign terrorism at the very borders of the United States. Well, if Russia does not have such weapons on foreign territories near the borders of the United States, and the United States has such weapons on foreign territories near the borders of Russia, then for parity the United States must remove its nuclear weapons from the Russian borders from foreign territories and that's it. And if at the western borders of Russia on
    foreign territories, there will be no US bases with its nuclear weapons, so then the need will automatically disappear
    Russia in Kaliningrad to keep the Iskander complexes. And then, only this need can be
    it will disappear, and only then if in all military bases of their own armies of Lithuania, Germany, Poland there will be only their contingent of military personnel and only weapons designed exclusively for the protection of their states.

    Nobody will agree to such an exchange. Neither can we keep "partners" in negotiations for "stupid." Such an agreement is doomed to never be signed. For the conditions are unequal. Their condition may be the complete dismantling of complexes with the Iskander ballistic missile, or at least their significant reduction and redeployment "beyond the Urals." Nobody will agree to dismantle 2 missile defense bases, withdraw tactical nuclear weapons from several bases, and all this in exchange for the fact that Russia will "remove" and not "destroy" the brigade in Kaliningrad ... You still have to be realistic

    The USA is an empire of evil and chaos!
    One of the key points for the resumption of normal relations with Russia will occur when the United States is dumped from Europe and Asia! And also NATO troops and their bases will be removed from our border!

    Eh, it was not necessary to leave Europe and unite Germany, and there would be nothing of this!
    It was not enough for the defeated countries to show the victorious country how to behave and what to do, and the USA to appropriate our Victory and use its fruits as winners!
    They need to speak with Russia in a quiet voice, kneeling and bowing their heads, and only when we ask them, because they are alive only because we allow them to.
    But could Russian troops be returned to Europe? How to withdraw quickly, so quickly and enter! Business for one night, remember how they entered Czechoslovakia? It is necessary to count and close this topic in a businesslike way once and for all. And remember - this is not a war, but a compulsion to restore order in the minds of Europeans and Americans!

    An empty grumbling, the Iskanders in Kaliningrad are forcing silence on the air defense / missile defense systems installed on the borders around the perimeter of Russia.

    Between the missile defense systems in Romania and our territory - Ukraine. Between the missile defense system in Poland and the territory of Russia (excluding the enclave) - Belarus. It is unlikely that the Iskanders in Poland will force the Romanian ABM base into silence ... laughing

    I agree, they will remain in place there, even if one takes off, we will extinguish the rest !!! And will they explode or not a question ..?

    Let's extinguish, even if the direction of flight of the anti-missile will be "south" ???

    To hit with nuclei in Europe is the same as setting fire to a neighbor one floor lower, you have to beat in North America and the British Isles. it’s easier to lay poison charges on the border for a specifically bad ending,
