In the United States called the number of remaining US military in Germany

After the reduction of the military contingent, 25 thousand American troops will remain in Germany. This was stated by former US ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell.


The recently resigned US ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, in response to a question about reducing the US presence in Germany, said that the withdrawal of the US military was "long overdue" and "American taxpayers are tired of paying for the defense of other countries."

No one should be surprised that Trump is withdrawing troops and returning soldiers home ... This is an extremely discussed topic in the United States. Trump said very clearly: we want to withdraw troops from Afghanistan, Iraq, South Korea, Japan and also Germany

- he said.

According to him, after the withdrawal of part of the military contingent in Germany, at least 25 thousand American troops will remain.

Again, there will still be 25 thousand soldiers. I think we need to understand the context here: the Americans asked the Europeans to make a greater contribution to NATO, the American taxpayers are a little tired of paying too much for the defense of other countries

- he added.

At the same time, Grenell emphasized that at the moment the Pentagon has not yet decided on the fate of the forces withdrawn from Germany. According to one information, the withdrawn US troops may remain in Europe, according to another, they will be transferred to the United States with subsequent deployment at one of the military bases.

Against this background, Warsaw was very “excited”, which suggested that Washington place part of the withdrawn contingent on its territory. In Poland, this proposal is argued by "strengthening the eastern flank of NATO" against the background of "Russian aggression."

      The transfer of troops, and especially nuclear weapons to Poland (and any other country in Eastern Europe) contradicts the Russia-NATO Founding Act.
      Therefore, they pretended to rotate.

        late is when they do not draw conclusions from past mistakes. and not to talk about "departed trains" .. that is, the likelihood that the train will leave again without you. and so that this does not happen .. it is necessary to analyze everything .. both the past and the present. I think you understand me.

      So it seems, except for the British and Americans, there was no one left, and then in a truncated composition ....
      During the XB years, the British deployed AK there (with 3 BTCs with 260-300 tanks each), the Americans had two AKs (1 BTC and 1 MD each), all of this left miserable remnants, which are also at least British they will withdraw .... they don’t want to withdraw their forces into the open field (like the USSR), we have only withdrawn 24 divisions from the GPG ....
      The latter was published in 1994 by the Berlin SMBr ....
      It is another matter where they will lead to the continent (islands) or the truth to neighboring Poland (Baltic states) ...

    Each US president must defeat someone or declare victory during his term, so today Trump will "take out", the next will bring in somewhere. And the US army, as it sat in this country, is still sitting ... The swing of politicians, the army is not reduced ...

    The more problems there are in Europe and the USA, the more often the militaristic statements of their politicians and generals are heard, the information space must be filled in. The main thing is to bark or howl, and the puppies will pick up to keep their electorate in the proper tone.
    More reminiscent of the snapping of teeth by a pack of jackals, kept at a distance from the bear and cherishing the hope of surviving his death.

    Europe itself must take care of its defense. There is no need for American troops in either Germany or Poland. Well, is it possible to have something for joint training on a rotational basis? And be sure to take all the American nuclear weapons home. So Russia will calm down and the tension will subside.
