NATO Colonel: It is a great honor for NATO that we have such an ally as Lithuania

54

The Baltic States mark another anniversary of NATO membership. Recall that Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania were admitted to the Western military bloc in the format of the so-called fourth expansion in March 2004. Slovenia, Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria joined NATO together with these countries.


The celebration of the 17th anniversary of admission to the alliance was decided in a very unusual way in Vilnius. Thus, the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense invites citizens to take to the streets of the Lithuanian capital on March 29 (the day of joining NATO) and arrange "festivities" along the streets in such a way that groups of people form the letters NATO on top.

We go out for a walk, form the letters NATO.



At the same time, the statement of the commander of the group of the so-called integration of NATO forces in Lithuania, Colonel Jakob Sogard Larsen is cited:

Already 17 years have passed since the moment when Lithuania became a member of the alliance. It is a great honor for NATO that we have such an ally as Lithuania.



In Latvia, they are going to hold reviews of troops on the territory of NATO military bases in the country on the occasion of the anniversary of joining the military bloc. At the same time, the Latvian Defense Ministry said that "a great achievement for the country over the years of being a member of NATO was that the army is now open to both men and women." Today, 16% of the military personnel in the Latvian army are women.

NATO Colonel: It is a great honor for NATO that we have such an ally as Lithuania

Ministry of Defense of Latvia:

This is even higher than the NATO average.

          NATO Command Headquarters in Lithuania headed Danish logistician from Poland Colonel Jakob Sogard Larsen.
          He stated that
          Already 17 years have passed since the moment when Lithuania became a member of the alliance. It is a great honor for NATO that we have such an ally as Lithuania.

          Of course, logistically, the territory of Lithuania is very important for the Pentagon!
          And everything else in Lithuania for NATO is for the Lithuanians from the Americans the same as Vaseline for the so-called "useful idiots for Washington / Pentagon" in the USA.

        In 1947, NATO was a force, but now a bunch of Limitrophes and Papuans.

        There is no work in the country, or to wash toilets in Europe, or cannon fodder at home, is really a holiday.

      The point is that great benefit... Invaluable ... for NATO.
      When the Baltics left the USSR and joined NATO, the Baltic Fleet lost the entire coast ... all bases and ports and airfields. The Baltic Fleet was locked up in Kronstadt ... Neither Revel ... nor Klaipeda ... nor Moonsund. nothing.
      For such a gift of fate, NATO generals ... must .. do the heck must .. and for them some Danish colonel puffs laughing

      We will triple efforts, we will arrange construction
      And we will pass the iron formation on the eve before the battle.
      Let it not sometimes seem that it will be simple to fight, -
      We are brave heroes of very small stature.
      We are brave heroes of very small stature.

      And the enemies are a mountain by a mountain, they look wearily past us,
      They are not heroes at all, but huge as rocks
      And cold, like ice floes - do not fight, but miss.
      We would have won them all, only we do not notice. lol
      Only we are not noticed because of the difference in size
      And for this they forgive us, very small, but bold.

        Poland can fit into that. But the Baltic countries, the "self-financed" armed forces will not be able to maintain, if only by greatly reducing them.
        In fact, it is true, NATO is a much more complex mechanism than just a military alliance. The interests of different parties are intertwined. But there is only one puppeteer.

    And that's all - it will be considered that "the master has appointed his beloved wife."

    He said that instead of "Lithuania" you can substitute any other word or country: "17 years have passed since the moment when Hamburgerland became a member of the alliance. It is a great honor for NATO that we have such an ally as Hamburgerland." - and not a word about how it is beneficial for Lithuania, and even more so for NATO, and what successes have been achieved during this time.
