The United States has suspended the withdrawal of the American military contingent from Germany

The United States is suspending the withdrawal of part of the American military contingent from Germany. This was announced by the head of the US European Command, Tod Walters.


The new US administration suspended the program adopted under Donald Trump to withdraw a significant part of the American military from Germany. According to Walters, the process is "frozen", it is not known how long it will take to make a final decision. It is possible that the decision to withdraw troops will be canceled, and the option of continuing the withdrawal is not ruled out, but it is unlikely.

The new administration has informed us of the need for verification - from the initial to the final stage. (...) Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin is currently examining all aspects of the decision made under Trump, it will take him some time

- explained Walters.

Meanwhile, it became known that the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan is likely to be postponed. The experts provided Joe Biden with recommendations in the report of the bipartisan Afghanistan Study Group commissioned by the US Congress.

According to American researchers, the United States needs to postpone the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, since the Taliban (banned in Russia) will not be able to ensure the conditions of the previously reached agreements until May 2021. The report says that it will take much longer to reach these agreements, so the withdrawal of troops should be postponed.

At the moment, the new administration is considering possible options for implementing the agreement concluded in 2020 with the Taliban; a final decision has not yet been made.

      The United States will never withdraw its troops from any of the countries it occupies! But the United States will always try to fight with someone else's hands - the hands of local natives of the countries they occupied.

        Even, moreover, they are going to saturate the Baltics with their equipment and contingent.

          Under Trump.
          Trump has not started a single new war.
          But he finished the old ones and reduced the contingent (although not everywhere)

        It's cool they live under American occupation smile
        The owner orders what to do, punishes for offenses, creates chaos and chaos, if such a whim came to his mind. But the main thing is not to say anything against, otherwise it will immediately demonstrate ... freedom of speech, at least.

        So that would be yes, but it is in Afghanistan that they will have to fight "on their own" with some reliance on the local forces of "Kabulistan", which were already demoralized after the signing of an agreement with the Taliban on the withdrawal of mattresses, and who are now amicably going over to the side of the Taliban. At a time when the mattresses were initiating negotiations with the mediation of the Qataris, the Taliban took a pause and hardly touched their contingent, periodically nightmaring the forces of official Kabul, simultaneously expanding their zone of control, respectively narrowing the US control zone. Refusal of agreements, again on the initiative of the United States, will untie their hands and then the mattresses will not seem a little from the word at all. since it will be extremely difficult to put together a new coalition in the current realities, since looking at the 20-year-old unsuccessful US military campaign against the Taliban, it is unlikely that anyone, being in their right mind, wants to get bogged down in a war with no prospect of victory for the next 20 years. Dur.akov is dumb !!! Well, except perhaps with the exception of the valiant "always ready-made" representatives of the skiddopot tribe. But they laughing not yet NATO! So yourself, yourself ...

      the new Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, is "in the process of doing a very, very thorough review" of the plan.
      “What I’ll say at the moment is that all options have been postponed and all of them will be reviewed,” he concluded.
      - In turn, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas called the reduction of the American contingent not surprising, describing the relations between the two countries as difficult.
      well what can you say "the head doesn't know what the tail is doing"

        States in Afghanistan regularly receive them in the neck.
        They cannot solve any military tasks.
        Besides the conclusion, the States have no other options.
        And the presence there, in addition to lives, also costs money.
        This is the main reason Trump decided to leave Afghanistan. The Germans also withdraw all of their own and will not change their minds.
        Drug trafficking is unlikely to bring much popularity to Biden.
        Although if they decide to stay, it will constantly weaken them. hi

          Trump has been in business all his life - he knows how to count money. That is why I decided to save money. His decision is understandable and understandable. If not from the point of view of American policy, then from the point of view of monetary policy - quite.

          And the decision of the "sleeper grandfather" is inexplicable neither from a political nor from a monetary standpoint. He has only one reason - I spoke about it the next day after he began to sign the decrees. This reason is just not like Trump, just the opposite. Trump said black - Biden said white. Trump said dryly - it means it will be wet under Biden. Trump decided that green is now blue ...

    It is possible that the decision to withdraw troops will be canceled


    The de-occupation of Germany is canceled, and the United States will never voluntarily agree to this ...

          The Americans will leave the occupied Germany - the Germans TOMORROW, for example, SP-2 will rush to finish building. And then they will start talking about leaving NATO if they suddenly realize that they can live without NATO. The entire American world order in Europe will collapse. Whether it is now - Germany is holding the European Union on the financial hook, and the United States is holding Germany by its wrinkled backside. And Washington is quite pleased.

    Americans are very fond of serving in Germany
    there are maximum salaries and very comfortable conditions.
    Many people dream of being sent there.
    I think there are quite a few democrats in this lucrative pie.
    And Trump generally raised the question that all this should be paid for by the European members of NATO.

      Long ago, in the first half of the 90s, he worked with the Spaniards. They supplied equipment and dispatched installation supervisors. Simply put, overseers over the local who installed this equipment. So "our" Spaniard said that they work all over the world, he personally was in a dozen countries for work - from the USA to Africa. And they had the largest salaries in Russia (he already "supervised installation" in the third city of Russia). "Due to the difficult general conditions." Although the oilmen received them in a royal way - free accommodation, meals, a car with a driver, tickets to Russia and back by plane. Plus a salary of $ 10000 a month (in Spain then $ 900 was considered VERY good) and my three salaries in rubles "for cigarettes." Because of Gaidar's insane dollar exchange rate, I received, if translated, 170 dollars - quite a decent salary, enough for everything.

      By the way, the lowest paid business trip they had was in the USA.

    I wonder if anyone is asking the Germans at all? We want to withdraw, we do not want to - we do not withdraw .. Or is the United States really easier there than at home? At home, the federal authorities agree on such things with the governors of the states in which the troops are moving, and the governors may simply disagree.

    When the Americans leave Iraq, Germany, and further down the list, the answer was in our song - never, yes, yes, never))) It’s not for this that it’s going to be gigantic and it’s not for that we settled down. In general, they will be felled only with the Newgras in their native land, it is not a fact.
