"Protection against threats from Russia and China": US Patriot complex delivered to Romania

Reports are coming from Romania about the delivery of the first Patriot air defense system manufactured by the United States to the country. During the handover ceremony, the complex was not without mention of Russia. It was said that "Russia is increasingly perceived as a threat to the countries of Eastern Europe, allies in the NATO alliance."


During the opening ceremony of a new military base in the area of ​​Romanian Constanta, the following statement was made by the Romanian Defense Minister Nicolae Chuke:

The installation of the first Patriot system is only the first step towards creating a powerful air defense capability for our country, which will make a significant contribution to deterring the enemy and protecting NATO on the eastern flank.

It is known that Romania will receive three more US air defense systems. These deliveries will begin in 2022.

US Ambassador to Bucharest Adrian Zuckerman:

The delivery of Patriot systems to Romania will enable the country to better protect itself and its NATO allies from threats. Among these threats I will single out Russia and China.

At the same time, Zuckerman did not specify since when Russia and China suddenly began to "threaten" Romania. Is it not from the very times when Washington from Romania began to threaten security, deciding to use this country as territory for the deployment of its missile defense system, which can easily be transformed into a strike target?

The Patriot air defense complex, which is important, Romania received as the second country in Eastern Europe after Poland. Why did the United States send this to these two states? weapon? The answer is simple: it is in Romania and Poland that the Pentagon creates missile defense facilities, which were originally described as "protection from Iranian missiles." And it is these objects that are going to cover the United States. The security of Romania and Poland as such is of little concern to the United States.

        Well you give!
        For the position of some kind of (oh!) Any, albeit a shock, complex, spending a couple of strategic Fields is very expensive!
        I'm just thinking: will a single Iskander launch with a 10 kT nuclear warhead be enough, or it will be possible to do with a divisional salvo without a nuclear warhead.
        Or will it be necessary to attract heavy aviation?
        Or maybe get by with a full salvo of Calibers from Karakurt? lol

              They have a head, they eat it, brush their teeth and stuff like that :)
              But there is no independence. And it never did. This little thing (not only Romania) always clings to the strong.
              Take at least recent history, count several centuries - the same thing.
              They considered Hitler to be the strongest in Europe - all the small fry went to fight in his armies, declared war on the USSR.
              Hitler was smashed - in a matter of days the same small fry declared war on the Germans, it was worth lifting a finger and “what you please” / “there is, my lord / comrade / master” Faster, faster to save the skin by joining the strong again.

              It's the same with Napoleon. The Austrians, Prussians and Italians, Bavarians and in general all of Germany, which consisted of a bunch of kingdoms, duchies and other things at that time, went to fight Russia.
              A couple of years later? smile All amicably began to ally with Russia, protruding their breasts (under Russian orders) and ascribing to themselves, if possible, all kinds of heroism - ek I kicked this Corsican monster, look the sovereign (Alexander I)

              Therefore, there should be no respect or tolerance for them, and it is useless to admonish them. They only understand strength. And so far they believe that Russia is much weaker than the United States.
              Apart from contempt and slight disgust, this petty thing causes nothing. By golly.

              Russia will never attack a member of Nata.

              Such a statement is an unforgivable mistake, because the doctrine says that "the blow will be dealt to the decision-making centers," and unless the press of the "Start" button will be performed not in Deveselu, but in Washington, and the missiles will go to the North Pole, and not to Russia ??
              Moreover, it seems that these missiles have a launcher reload cycle of almost 5 minutes, so this is the case when there will be no time to almond.

                      How does an attack differ from a response in our time?
                      The result: If earlier the surprise of the attack gave all the priorities to the attacker, today this is no longer the case.
                      Look here: with today's radar detection ranges of up to 6 thousand km and image processing in real time (with the participation of satellite reconnaissance systems), any orderly movement of marks on these screens arriving at the network center is processed and within a few minutes it becomes clear whether it is the migration of migratory birds or the attack of several thousand Axes.
                      While the Axes slowly (subsonic!) Will overcome their hundreds of kilometers to the target, hoping to pile on ROEM, they are already in the BG, rise and reach the launch lines, all the carriers carrying the means of retaliation (you yourself know that almost all of them are now super- and hyper-sonic), so the combat contact of the ROY with our air defense will practically coincide with our retaliatory strike against the decision-making centers.
                      And if individual elements of the ROY still have chances of hitting targets in the depths of our air defense, then the objects of our "sworn partner (s)" by this time will already blaze in the fire of nuclear fires.
                      So it turns out that the attack == defense by the actual execution time.

            After all, Russia can do it?
            Maybe he will even do it with great pleasure if the Yankees happened to rock the boat!
            The only question is whether it is necessary to punish the gypsies to such an extent for their instigation to the Yankees in order to vitrify 3-5 (no, it's a pity for such an area to have such a quantity of plutonium !! sad) 2-3 sq. km or not to do it (after all, the center of Europe, you can say so ...)?

            The whole essence of the system of power in the United States in a nutshell. They simply cannot do otherwise. It is a system. Otherwise, this machine will stop and the United States will collapse.
            One of the leading US investigative journalists and editor of The Washington Post, Bob Woodward, reported that former Pentagon chief General James Mattis and former Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates (both fired in 2019 by the US President) discussed "collective action" to remove Donald Trump from office.

            Trump is dangerous. It is unusable

            - said Mattis.

            The same thing was once said in the Pentagon and the CIA about President John F. Kennedy. When they say the president is "dangerous," they mean that he is dangerous to their personal budget. By "unsuitability" they mean that he is not a supporter of war, and therefore will not increase spending on defense and security. They do not want this, since they serve in the interests of the military-industrial complex, and not for the good of their country.

            Trump, like Kennedy, wants to normalize relations with Russia and bring back American troops that are involved in military operations overseas, increasing the profits of contractors. To stop Kennedy, they killed him. To stop Trump, they concocted a Rush Gate, full of wild, unsubstantiated and completely unsubstantiated charges, and then tried to organize impeachment. But this attempt was unsuccessful.

            Now they decided to use the "color revolution" against Trump in the presidential elections in November 2020. We have reached the point in the collapse of our country that the mere statement of an obvious fact is no longer believed. The American and European media have long been under the control of the CIA. Newspapers, TV channels and websites are not real news providers. They present events in the interpretation needed by the “deep state” so that reality does not interfere with the agenda.

      We must also mention why an expensive and ineffective air defense system is being bought. The role of frightening Russia and China. The Americans are promoting their goods. And with such tales about threats it is much easier to do this. The American military-industrial complex will not be left without work as long as Romania and similar vassals of the United States exist.

      The Patriots did not help the Americans in Iraq (al-Assad base) and the Arabs in Saudi Arabia, but the effectiveness of air defense is not the main thing for the Americans. The main thing is PR and the conquest of sales markets for air defense systems.

      Well, they will not help the Romanians in any way, and even rather harm them. And for the VSA, as a unit of the many missile defense systems, this is another attack on us.

      Don't debunk the myths of the American military. For a catchphrase, China was mentioned.

        Even better.
        Who promised it would be easy.
        Kazakhstan is precisely the zone of interests of the PRC.
        It will be so.
        KKNRR- Kazakh Chinese People's Republic of Romania.
        Why Kazakh first?
        So Kazakhstan has a lot of unrealized ambitions.
        In general, there are threats.
        And Russia will swallow Moldova and annex Romania.

    The task of the Americans is to hang as many guns as possible on the walls of European houses, one of them will still fire. It is clear that not for the Americans, who again stand on the sidelines and appear only for the funeral pancakes section.

    The installation of the first Patriot system is only the first step towards creating a powerful air defense potential for our country

    Considering that the "patriots" can launch cruise missiles, these installations will be objects of speedy destruction in the event of a BP arrival.
    Well, everyone who is nearby will not be good at it, if anything remains of them at all. fellow lol

    Sometimes you want to send our diplomatic language to hell; we are almost directly called enemies, and we are all partners, partners. At least once they directly named not an unfriendly act, but a hostile act that threatens the Russian people. European countries putting American weapons on duty will be attacked on an equal footing with the Americans, our strategic nuclear forces. In view of the fact that the United States is far away, our weapons of destruction, due to the difference in flight time, will hit the planned targets in Europe, and then in the United States. And without any diplomatic curtsey. There is no good morning! am

    The delivery of Patriot systems to Romania will enable the country to better protect itself and its NATO allies from threats. Among these threats I will single out Russia and China.


    You said it was against Iran ...

    there is no need to remind of the honesty of Russia, which a long time ago, as soon as the Americans first hinted at their plans in Romania and Poland, would deploy Patriot missiles, ostensibly to protect them from Iranian missiles
    and S. Korea, immediately told America straight in the eyes that you would send these missiles against Russia.
    But Russia still has not appreciated the true damage from the Gorbachev-Yeltsin betrayal. Firstly, this betrayal became a gigantic danger because, during the collapse of the USSR, these traitors destroyed many new and promising medium-range missile systems, while the United States only dismantled such systems and hid them in warehouses. Secondly, after the Gorbachev-Yeltsin betrayal, Russia found itself in time trouble so that after such a catastrophe its military-industrial complex could stand on its feet and create and produce new and modern missiles that have no analogues in the world (such as Caliber, Iskander, Zircon, Dagger, Petrel even before of how the countries of the former Warsaw bloc and the Baltics will enter
    to NATO. Immediately, if Russia got a blessing from the Gorbachev-Yeltsin betrayal (as the liberals tell us, not a catastrophe as it really was), Russia then having such a above-mentioned weapon
    could both Romanians and Poles and Balts and Ukrainians and Bulgarians issue warnings and conditions that Russia gives you freedom and freedom so that you plow and sow, raise and give birth, graze your cows, pigs, sheep and goats, study, build and educate ... But if you join NATO or deploy or create weapons threatening Russia on your territory, then Russia after your first
    stuttering about NATO membership will deprive you of that share that God has assigned you. That is, life is free if you plow, sow, give birth, grow, graze, study, build and educate. But if you threaten Russia, that means you have too much freedom and will, and you do not understand and appreciate the luxury ... With all the ensuing consequences and NATO headquarters, what will happen to the new members from Eastern Europe and the Baltic States, which NATO did not promise Gorbachev admit to their ranks and who themselves promised Gorbachev not to join NATO. They say, give us only will and freedom ... But now they have gathered to you in NATO, then let them not be offended by getting fiercely for it ... But after Yeltsin, Russia was as poor as a church mouse, the army collapsed, the US has nothing new missiles against will put Russia then did not have and
    Russia received US missiles in Romania and Poland, in fact, at the borders of Russia. And Gorbachev lectures at universities in the United States and puffs up about his foundation in Russia. And Yeltsin's center is healthy and respected among the liberals and even among the highest authorities in Russia ...

    American Patriot complex delivered to Romania
    Russia and China sleep and see how to attack Romania. In Europe, an anti-missile defense system was already installed, allegedly against the threat from Iran, so what? It is not Russia and China that poses a threat to peace, but the United States with its sixes, which every baby already knows (except for the EU). Every year a knock is heard more and more distinctly at the door of Russia - knock, knock, it's me - "democracy."

    And especially China is probably "threatening." laughing If the Americans put in the Patriots to protect, then it would be necessary to provide for protection from the Patriots. winked
