US Congress intends to block the withdrawal of American troops from Germany

The withdrawal of part of the American military contingent from Germany, announced by Donald Trump, may not take place. According to the German newspaper Die Welt, the US Congress intends to block the redeployment of the American military in Europe.


Democrats and Republicans agreed on a new package of laws for the defense budget for 2021, including blocking the withdrawal of the American military from the territory of Germany. The Congress said that they consider Germany a strong partner in NATO, and the presence of the American military on German territory is "an important element" of deterring military aggression and predatory intentions of Russia.

In addition, US troops in Germany play an important role in supporting US military operations in the Middle East, Africa and Afghanistan.

As the newspaper writes, the US Congress intends to adopt new amendments to the defense budget this year.

Recall that Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of about 12 thousand American troops from Germany. Before that, Trump accused Berlin of insufficient funding for NATO and said that the United States is not obliged to protect anyone for free. Plans for the withdrawal of the military were drawn up and agreed, but so far not a single American military has been withdrawn from Germany as part of the redeployment.

    Thanks to Mr. Gorbachev for the "new thinking" and the quick flight of our troops from Germany

      At the same time, the Russian government supports Gorbaty on a pension of over 800 thousand rubles a month, free state security and social security. And they will bury Humpbacked in Russia with state honors, memorials in the Kremlin for the state budget - i.e. for our people's money! Instead of judging him for treason and shooting him.

          Naive commoners .... the course of events was decided long before ... who will condemn and shoot if the thread of government has not been interrupted for a minute from the distant 70s to the present day ?? .....

            There is NOTHING surprising, they are all members of the Central Committee of the CPSU, and the General Secretary was just from among them and they chose

              So I say - there is nothing surprising, no condemnation or executions, because their successors still rule ... who will condemn that? ...

                No, you have to destroy everything, right? To abolish the succession of power, so that with each new ruler the country would jump from side to side? It's fun here with continuity, but without continuity there won't be any movement in the cart at all. (see Krylov's fable)

            Exactly!

            Instead of condemning and shooting Gorbaty, on the contrary, in 2011, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev gave Gorbachev the highest award of Rosmiya - the Order of St. Andrew the First-Called!
            And Gorbachev lives in Russia with the liberal-bourgeois leadership of the Russian Federation in full love and affection.

            Medvedev awarded Gorbachev the Order of St. Andrew the First-Called


            To deprive Gorbachev of the Order of St. Andrew the First-Called or not? • May 22, 2013


            Where does Gorbachev live today and how he gives advice to Lukashenka • 25 Aug. Feb 2020

      Yes, even that bitch, Kohl, wanted to set up military camps in the Russian Federation, where necessary, he offered a lot of money, heard about billion German marks. Marked, in response, they say, we are rich and led the military to live in the fields, in tents and with their families ... They canceled the execution with confiscation, then in vain ...

      indisputably. If not for Colonel Trump, the sanctions would have been stronger. Therefore, the Congress came up with moves around it.

      His main merit is that he does not allow the myth of "American democracy" to fade away.

        If any president does not repeat daily about "American democracy", then Biden will be put in his place.

    somehow not surprised. But someone else hopes for his veto on SP-2. Trump is not a lame duck, he is a shot goose

    Trump has once again been stalled by Congress! Why does the United States even need a president if Congress does something like urine on their heads? And she beats all the time, she already fantasizes in the brain, hence the eternal laws on sanctions, and other nonsense from senile people who are tired of waiting at the cemetery!

    These are the EU sovereignty and democracy. The Anglo-Saxons turned it into their colony of the 21st century. Therefore, England left the EU, having fulfilled its task there.
