Norwegian officer called Norway the site of a likely "military clash" between the US and Russia

47

A material was released in the Norwegian media, which talks about the likely consequences of an increase in the American military presence in this Scandinavian country. Lt. Col. Turmud Heyer, who is a lecturer at the Norwegian Armed Forces Academy, shares his views on this matter.


According to Lieutenant Colonel Heyer, it is Norway with such a development of events that as a result can become the site of a direct armed clash between the United States of America and Russia. Heyer notes that due to the growing tensions over the development of the Arctic, Norway may eventually turn into a real battlefield between the superpowers.

A teacher at the Norwegian military academy emphasizes that Norway, being a NATO country bordering on Russia, has recently been increasingly involved in the confrontation between Washington and Moscow. Because of this, the degree of risk for Oslo itself grows.

Heyer:

It is also necessary to understand that it is Norway of all NATO countries that is closest to the large Russian nuclear arsenal in the north.

According to the Norwegian officer and teacher, today Russia and the United States have embarked on a new Cold War against each other. And if Norway does not take a more pragmatic position, then for Oslo, as Heyer notes, this could lead to extremely negative consequences.

          Kind Sergei. You confuse rats (the first six listed are incomplete) with financially independent Scandinavians. No Scandinavian country has money problems. The Norwegians are worried that when the Arctic shelf is divided, the allies will leave them less. So they are trying to get more out of our pie (naive At the same time, everyone, they pretty decently flew to the producers of seafood and timber processing. That's from here and timid attempts to settle the situation, something like this, when the bottom can not, and the top is not at all possible))))))

            Good Alex hi
            No Scandinavian country has money problems.

            Actually, I had money in the military budget.
            It always seems to the warriors that they are not given enough money
            As for the rest, I completely agree with myself. hi

              Yes, in general, even the warriors with a budget are doing well. For the Scandinavians, everything is a little simpler and at the same time everything is more complicated. There, basically, historical grievances intersect with economic pragmatism. As a result, we get a political vinaigrette at the end)))).

                And what historical grievances can Norway have against the USSR and Russia? Norway itself appeared on the maps of the world in the 60s of the 19th century. It did not fight against the Russian Empire or the USSR. But she flew in from Nazi Germany and smashed the German troops in Norway with the Red Army. And after the 2nd World USSR, and then Russia did not show aggression towards Norway. Spitsbergen was used together. Arctic? So the territory of the Russian Federation in the North does not go beyond the borders of the former USSR. And the Northern Fleet was created not against Norway, but against the NATO fleet. Conclusion, do not be bullied, but you won’t be beat back. And economic issues can always be resolved at the negotiating table, if one of the parties does not go too far with the wishlist.

        I don’t know about Poland and Norway, but in the former Soviet republics it’s enough to work in enclaves with national zombified populations such as Galicia or Mingrelia. Although, my experience with the Balts is surprisingly positive, and zapadentsamt, by the way. Maybe headquarters right away? Washington, London, Bonn, Brussels, etc. It will be good for the health of the same Norwegians, fears will cease to haunt.

        Poland is not a dwarf at all, but the owner of the most efficient (and rather large) land army in NATO (after the USA, of course). And they have been pumping up the Polish Armed Forces for a long time, purposefully and thoroughly - a lot of financial assistance and favorable treatment. Although, this does not at all guarantee that the Polish Poles will want to wage an offensive war with the Russian Federation - despite the serious psychological pumping from the authorities.

      In Rwanda, of course, it is warmer than in Norway, but the snag is that Africa is far away, and Norway, as a powerful base and a likely bridgehead for the United States and NATO in general, is nearby.

      Of course, the Norwegian somewhat exaggerates the threat to Norway from our side, giving it the place of a "battlefield" between us and the United States, but who knows what the irresponsible policy of the Scandinavian country can lead to?

    Join NATO (why is it a country for which the threat of external invasion is minimal), then allow the US Armed Forces into its territory, and then suddenly worry that the country may turn into a rock melted by a nuclear fire. Is it like "first we do, and then we think"? For some reason I thought that it was only our, national trait laughing

      This is hardly a national trait. The country first fell into the occupation of Germany, then they were replaced by the Anglo-American troops. There can be no national authority in an occupied territory. The power there is initially a puppet, and acts in the interests of the occupiers.

    The question immediately arises - who is to blame for this? The teacher's offer to take Norway to a more pragmatic position in relation to Russia and involvement in NATO is reasonable. But the situation does not depend on teachers, but on politicians. Recently, there has been a tendency for small countries to shout loudly what they will get from Russia in the first place. It's one thing when it sounds with the aim of establishing normal relations with Russia (which is extremely rare), and another for the purpose of receiving money from the United States and deploying its troops on its territory (Poland, the Baltic states and fussy Ukraine).

    The subfloor is right. It is not profitable for Norgs to bark at Russia. In case of a mess, they will be slammed without looking. So they should listen to the words of this underground. The point in the statement is that the mattress pushes the Norgs into a conflict with Russia, in which no matter who wins, the Norgam is a northern animal.
