Norwegian Edition: The US military will be accommodated in our bases "like at home"

35

Norway has signed a new treaty with the United States, according to which the Americans will deploy their military contingent in the country. The United States will behave "at home" in Norway, as the agreement gives the United States exclusive conditions, argues the author of the article for the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten.


Norway and the United States have signed a new agreement on military cooperation. Moreover, this is not an agreement within NATO, but an agreement between the two countries, writes Sveinung Berg Bentzred. This treaty gives Americans exclusive rights, which allows them to behave freely on Norwegian territory, as if they had "come to their home."

"They will be accommodated in our bases as if they were at home," they write in Norway.

As part of the signed agreements, the United States obtains the right to: freely deploy at Norwegian military bases, building its military facilities there, to which the Norwegian military will not have access; import your own equipment into the country without checking and registering customs; military and civilians freely enter and leave the territory of Norway; the lack of control of Norwegian jurisdiction in the event of committing crimes even outside military bases.

Thus, the author writes, Americans will act in Norway as if they are in the United States, and not in a foreign country. They create their own mini-state on Norwegian territory. In return, they must respect and abide by Norwegian laws, not station nuclear weapon, landmines and cluster munitions.

What did Norway get for this? First, the Norwegian frigate will be allowed to join the US Navy and go along with the ships of the American fleet... Secondly, large investments are expected in the military structure of Norway and thirdly, the number of US-Norwegian exercises will increase.

The author did not forget to mention Russia, which will not at all like the placement of Americans nearby. Norway will become a springboard for US pressure on Russia, which in turn will make it a likely target for a strike by Moscow. In the event of a military conflict, the Americans can return to the United States, and Norway has nowhere to go. Time will tell whether the expectations of the Norwegian authorities from the treaty with the United States will come true, the author sums up.

        The Norwegians themselves and without a war With this treaty, they turned themselves and their country into a US colony - just like Japan defeated after WWII!
        However, Japan became a US colony after WWII, and Norway became a US colony now - in peacetime, i.e. to the new TMV.
        And the Norwegians will NEVER be able to drive the Americans out of Norway, like the Japanese, NEVER!

          I am surprised at one thing: HOW you can get into the loop yourself, and even with the current situation in geopolitics ... it seems that they eat a lot of fish ... and there is a lot of phosphorus ... apparently this is not the case ... if there are no brains, then you cannot buy them ... and if there is, then they quickly become covered with green mold with a striped odor (seen in the example of very, very many "independent" ...)

    Most importantly, Norway has become a target for Russian missiles and not only with a conventional warhead. Maybe over time they will understand that they have become a target. They would stay away from the Americans, fish, produce oil and gas, but no. We need your Svalbard, country but a lot of coal. Stop, stop and not Grumant was Spitsbergen called, information for thought.

      Yes-ah, the Soviets got into a mess with Grumant ... In 1924, if I'm not mistaken, there was a congress on the Arctic - so there the Bolsheviks generally wanted to abandon the Arctic, as unnecessary. Thank God, someone's bright head was found and this did not happen ...

        And you know that the Chinese, using the status of Svalbard, have drawn up with their scientific station. So let the norgi think who the target is. The Chinese threat has appeared! hi

    Norgis are very surprised, but what is different in other countries?
    It is already a proven fact that drug trafficking centers are located next to the deployment of American military facilities in the EU, for example

    Thus, the author writes, Americans will act in Norway as if they are in the United States.
    are deeply mistaken, at home Americans are obliged to abide by the law, but in the colonies there is no

    This agreement was signed solely because of the promoted image of an external enemy for Norway in the person of Russia and the fear of being left alone with the Russian bear. That is why the willingness to go to any vassal conditions, just to feel at least a little protected in the face of the "threat" from the East. The propaganda in Norway finally brainwashed the very pale descendants of the Vikings. Those usually themselves staggered to death their neighbors, and did not lie down under them.

    I was in Norway more than once, before my eyes it changed. It started with proud Norwegians and ended again with refugees from all over the world. Black Vikings are full. There was purity, beauty, Arabs and Negroes equalized it in their own way. Multiculturalism won. Take it warm and do what If you want with them. By the way, wonderful people, I'm talking about pure Norgs. I haven't heard a bad word from a mere mortal towards Russia. Politics, politics again, they need to be in trend. By the way, in Norway, I almost sold myself after accidentally on a special operation against the Arabs. I heard how a bullet whistles after a shot over your head. That "biathlete" was still shooting, the Arabs were in the opposite direction.

    The Norwegian thinks in the right direction. But. What's done is done, all that remains is to relax and get all the pleasure from such a communal neighbor.

    Sick all over the head! Do they need it? If earlier they could argue "will arrive, will not arrive", but now, it is not necessary to argue - "will arrive".

    The Americans have such conditions wherever their bases are located on the basis of bilateral agreements.

    they must respect and abide by Norwegian laws, not station nuclear weapons, landmines and cluster munitions.
    Nuclear weapons are not placed. Mainly intelligence, management, etc. Plus, for those who did not know, in Norway there are several underground storage facilities for NATO equipment, weapons and equipment, mostly American. The Americans, of course, serve all this, but they also need crews, etc. for all this good.

    Secondly, large investments are expected in the military structure of Norway.
    Everything is pretty pragmatic and prosaic.

    About all possible "new crosses on the map", and so there was a cross, for example, the Norwegian PLO forces are actively working against our nuclear submarines and are part of the NATO forces, etc., and so on.

    A grimace of history, the north of Norway was liberated by Soviet troops, and now there will be US bases ... Seriously, there was nothing to ruin the USSR. How many geopolitical and internal troubles! How much more will be.
