Pompeo presented an unexpected explanation for the withdrawal of part of the US contingent from Germany

43

An unexpected explanation for the reduction in the number of US troops in Europe was presented by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Recall that earlier Donald Trump announced the withdrawal from Germany of more than 12 thousand troops. At the same time, the American president did not specify where exactly these troops would be withdrawn. The situation decided to take advantage of the Polish authorities. During a visit to Washington, Polish President Andrzej Duda suggested that Trump send the bulk of the contingent withdrawn from Germany to his country.


Today Pompeo made it clear that for the main part of the contingent withdrawn from Germany, accommodation is planned outside Europe.

The head of the US State Department announced that the United States intends to “confront the Chinese threat together with India and other regional partners,” and therefore the logistics of the US military’s military presence are being reviewed.

Pompeo:

PLA pose a threat in the region. This threat is directed at India, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, and other countries.

This statement was made by the US Secretary of State during the 2020 interactive forum in Brussels.

Mike Pompeo:

We are going to make sure that we are properly positioned to withstand the Chinese army. We believe that this is a challenge of our time, and we are going to make sure that we have the resources for this.

According to Pompeo, the US Army will use such a logistic principle, according to which it will try to deploy its main forces where there is “a greater threat”.

Pompeo:

Of course, we do all this in agreement with our European partners.

The Indian edition of The Print, commenting on Pompeo’s statement, writes that the Secretary of State did not agree with the criticism of President Trump in connection with this decision. Trump is criticized in Europe and the United States themselves due to the fact that the withdrawal of part of the contingent from Europe, according to opponents of the decision, "will increase the Russian threat."

Pompeo:

This is not true. We are compelled to revise some principles which were taken as a basis before. Our ability to deter Russia or other opponents is no longer determined solely by where we are deploying troops. We must allocate our resources efficiently.

      It would be better to develop education, science, agriculture, medicine, electronics, energy, construction, engineering, shipbuilding, aircraft manufacturing and the space industry. How much more does humanity need to spend on these wars?

        But England convinced that it was necessary to go together to the communist USSR. And if Chamberlain remained, that would be so. For Chamberlain was not beaten by the Axis in World War I. And Churchill, well, the Turks, the allies of Germany, hung that he had lost the post of naval minister.
        This is how one person’s personal experience and political taste changes history.

        In the era of "long rocket arms" this is no longer so relevant ...
        Moreover, Aloizych dragged to our borders as many as 85% of German troops and satellites ...
        And how much yaneks pulled?

      Polish resident Andrzej Duda suggested Trump to send the bulk of the contingent withdrawn from Germany to his country.

      the payment will be transferred to them, Bolton writes that Trump wanted 4 times more from Japan than they pay now, and he already totaled the debt to the Germans at 1 trillion. $ for ensuring their safety ....

    ... Pompeo, clearly says - Russia, the enemy. And we have a USA partner ... we are our bourgeois partners, and the USA does not pay attention to these words .... Not a partner, Russia is them, not a partner.

    What kind of nonsense do these Western media write, does anyone seriously believe that 10 to 20 thousand stripes can somehow affect their safety in the event of a serious conflict. Comedians, here we will talk about the survival of countries, and even continents. And as overseers of the Eurovassals, yes, they matter here.

      These thousands will slaughter territories and signify presence. They will experience the logistics (well, the word) chain. And in cases of an incident there will be an occasion to introduce a serious contingent and use serious weapons. Amers need a reason and need a war that will bleed China and they want to do this with the bodies of the Indians and their weapons. This is the same loot and the revival of their own industries as Trump promised the people.
