German general: Russian tanks, aircraft and missiles are real

The German press published an interview with General of the FRG Armed Forces Jared (Jared) Zembicki, who heads the American headquarters in Wiesbaden. The interview was published in the FAZ edition and was devoted to the development of the Bundeswehr, partnership in the NATO format, as well as (where in the Western press without it) the "Russian threat".


Zembicki, who is in charge of the headquarters, whose number is about 2 thousand people, received the following question as the first question:

Why is the American headquarters headed by a German general?

According to Zembicki, such a proposal was made by his predecessor, American General Campbell, who "tried to emphasize the importance of the partnership between the United States and Germany." This is eloquent evidence of how the roles of "partners" are distributed. Even more eloquently, Zembitsky confirmed the following: some of the American documents at the headquarters remain for him under the heading "secret".

A German general as a kind of excuse:

But I have a certain leeway in my position.

Which one, the Bundeswehr general did not explain.

Jared Zembicki said that for NATO and Germany the situation in recent years has begun to change significantly: if earlier the German Defense Ministry believed that the main threats were "somewhere very far away - for example, in Afghanistan", now they believe that they have moved to the European contingent.

German general:

This is primarily due to the Russian aggression in Ukraine, in the Crimea. We have received a clear signal from the Russians that they are ready to violate international norms.

I wonder what kind of "violations of international norms" the general is talking about? About the right of people to freely express their will during a referendum?
Zembicki:

Today the Russian threat is real. Russian Tanks real, planes and missiles are real too.

At the same time, according to the German general, NATO is "real and the force holding back the Russians." In particular, he noted the presence in Poland and the Baltic States of four NATO combat groups, "working out various scenarios."

              Colleague, you wrote in the wrong topic. Such topics, as I understand it, are created specifically for the "dazdraputov", so that they could at least "grumble" about something. Imagine their "shouting" in a topic about medicine, say, or about economics. It's ridiculous to think about it.

      Yeah, they work out the scripts. Forgot the Hans, as they did capitulatory. Threats from Russia appeared in Europe. Kind of aggressive cheap Russian gas is breaking through its pipelines to Germany to make Germany the leader of the European economy. Although the German general can be understood: what kind of nonsense he will not carry for cookies in the NATO headquarters from Uncle Sam's table.

        If they do not wish, then the majority in the Bundestag, to which the Chancellor and the Government are responsible, will not. The ADG or the Left have little chance of coming to power. The Greens and the FDP can only be part of a coalition. An independent candidate who does not rely on a powerful party has no chance of coming to power. Yes, the Germans do not like to vote for candidates who are not associated with parties. The peculiarity of their mentality is as follows. When we talk about a country, we need to clearly understand the peculiarities of its political structure, party system, mentality of the population, etc.

              Here's an introduction:

              The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party won 12,6% of the vote in the Bundestag elections. The AfD has become the third most important faction in the German parliament and will use the platform to promote its views - Nazi from the point of view of some Germans, and nationalist from the point of view of others.

              Their maximum is 25-30%. A significant part of the Germans, on the contrary, sympathize with the "Left". Although both the ADG and the Left are in favor of improving relations with the Russian Federation. And the ADG is radical and nationalistic only by modern German politically correct standards. They are not Nazis at all, and if they are nationalists, then they are rather moderate and cautious.

    В German press interview came out General of the armed forces of Germany Jared (Jared) Zembicki, head of the American headquarters in the city of Wiesbaden.


    Such employment of the German general looks very unreadable and incomprehensible for the normal perception of the specifics of the Bundeswehr and its role in the country's defense.
    But, if we consider that the Americans are leading Germany itself, then everything falls into place.

    Maybe an "ally", but not quite full-fledged. At the same time, the Americans still shared with the German general a terrible "secret"

      A significant part of Germans, especially in eastern Germany, have surnames with Slavic roots. And some of them are indeed descendants of assimilated Poles. But they consider themselves to be Germans. And in Poland, on the contrary, there are Poles, the descendants of assimilated Germans. They often have appropriate surnames. But these are Poles, they should not be confused with representatives of the small German minority in Poland.

          But they were also Germans. If I suddenly find out that there were non-Russian people among my ancestors, I won't stop being Russian because of this. Although the element of hypocrisy among these Germans with Slavic surnames and Slavic ancestors, who consider themselves to be "pure-blooded Aryans", of course, was strongest.

    I wonder what kind of "violations of international norms" the general is talking about?
    about the norm of the defeated (Russia) to obey the winner (USA) in everything,

    And put pressure on the Naglosaks with sanctions so that they return the island to Mauritius. The court in The Hague delivered the same decision. They resettled the indigenous people from there to Mauritius, and squeezed the islands, without any referendums there. Something went into international law

    I wonder what kind of "violations of international norms" the general is talking about? About the right of people to freely express their will during a referendum?

    And if there is a thread on Sakhalin to hold a referendum ?? Or in Kaliningrad ??)
    This stick is twofold .. and not to understand what the general is talking about is to pretend to be a "radish" ..

      In order to hold a referendum there, you need to bring people to this ... As it was in Crimea ...

        Is it true ?? And in Donbass, it means they have not yet brought people to this ??)

        I thought it was easier .. Russia needed Crimea .. and Russia made such a decision ..
        But, it turns out, it's all about people ..)))

    This is primarily due to the Russian aggression in Ukraine, in the Crimea. We have received a clear signal from the Russians that they are ready to violate international norms.
    Noo Herr General !!! Once again - nicht !!! Russia in terms of Crimea is following exactly in the footsteps of the United States in their case of behavior with Kosovo - a trace in a trace ... So nod at your boss-puppeteer !!!

    Normal set. The surname comes from the East Prussians, in Kaliningrad and the surrounding area you will find memories, not Germans, they all ... moved out. laughing

    Name from Americans, the general was born in 1969 in West Berlin. The middle name is Stefan.

    The FRG received the highest award for Afghanistan. German! General Sembritzki) And even Jared. This is the set. laughing

    Zembitsky confirmed the following: some of the American documents at the headquarters remain for him under the heading "secret"

    Wow, chief of staff with no access to classified documents. We also have such, they are called mummers.
    But I have a certain leeway in my position.

    A dog sitting on a leash also has a certain freedom of action, for example, to bark.

    Did they just now realize that the Russians did not show cartoons three years ago? And then, I remember, they competed with wit over Putin's presentations of new weapons.
