The signed agreement between the USA and Slovakia allows to expand the American military presence in the republic

36

The United States has acquired a new ally in Europe, ready to deploy an additional American military contingent on its territory. The United States and Slovakia have reportedly signed a military cooperation agreement.


Last Thursday, an agreement on military cooperation between the United States and Slovakia was signed in Washington. The document was signed by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Slovak Defense Minister Jaroslav Nagy and Slovak Foreign Minister Ivan Korchok. Now, for the document to come into force, it must be approved by the country's parliament and signed by the president.

The agreement is said to make it possible to expand the US military presence in Slovakia no longer within the framework of NATO, but within the framework of bilateral relations. Washington already intends to modernize the two military airfields Malacky-Kuhinya and Sliach, with the further deployment of the American military to them.

The signing of the document caused a mixed reaction in Slovakia, where not everyone is happy with the Americans. Opponents of signing the treaty claim a possible loss of sovereignty and the transformation of Slovakia into a US vassal, following the example of Poland, which has long become a conductor of Washington's ideas in Europe. Protests took place in the country, but most likely they will not affect the ratification of the agreement.

In the United States, they swear that they do not intend to deploy any permanent military bases on the territory of the republic, and cooperation will be based on equality and mutual respect. According to Blinken, the US respects the sovereignty of Bratislava and will act solely in the interests of the two countries.

The head of the State Department confirmed the US plans to upgrade two military airfields at its own expense, but stressed that they would remain the property of the Slovak Air Force, and the Americans would simply use them sometimes, albeit for free.

        When bank depositors lend their money to bank deposits, they are only VIRTUAL owners of their funds invested in the bank, and the OWNERS of the bank become and are their REAL owners, since bankers actually manage other people's money - i.e. the money of their depositors - and may even never return them to them!

        With the military bases of the Americans in Slovakia, absolutely the same thing takes place! Moreover, the Pentagon will use the military bases built by Washington for FREE!
        Those. Slovakia from its budget will also pay Washington for the maintenance of American bases in Slovakia!

        Of course, such an agreement between the United States and Slovakia is the surrender of Slovakia's national sovereignty to the United States and nothing else!

          Not so simple...

          The opposition in the Slovak parliament is against the same "surrender" (it still has a banal, healthy self-preservation instinct). Parliament has not yet ratified this "contract". And without ratification, it will not enter into force ... And the opposition has enough votes there to disrupt ratification ...

            I would like to hope that there will be fewer "soros" in the parliament of Slovakia than, for example, in the parliament of the same Czech Republic, but they are there and are gaining their political strength!

            Let's see what happens to the anti-Soros opposition in the Slovak parliament regarding this treaty with the United States.

              That's it! The unceremonious State Department loses some vassals, and buys others, new ones! There is little hope that the deputies will not be bought up. Although if the purchase fails, I will only be happy!

                I only read about their military operations at the beginning of the war and in the North Caucasus, and in the Crimea, the commissar of the Northern Force Lugovoy even wrote a book called "Brothers", where the truth is that the role of this friendship was greatly exaggerated.

    Three-hour talks between Putin and Xi Jinping ended © Photo: Press Service of the President of the Russian Federation

    The Kremlin hopes that the idea of ​​the Russian Federation on the summit of the "five" permanent members of the UN Security Council is viable, and counterparties will show interest in it, - Peskov

    Xi Jinping thanked Putin for his full support of the One China principle, Peskov said
    --------
    Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping at the talks focused on the tension that the West is whipping up around Russia and China. Vladimir Putin outlined to the leader of the People's Republic of China Russia's line at the talks with the United States and NATO. In response, Xi Jinping said that he supports Russia's line in negotiations with the US and NATO on security.

    The main thing from the joint statement of the leaders following the talks in Beijing:
    - Russia and China, being world powers with a rich cultural and historical heritage, have deep traditions of democracy based on thousands of years of development experience, broad popular support and consideration of the needs and interests of citizens,
    - the leaders of the two countries called on all nuclear powers to withdraw nuclear weapons deployed abroad and limit the development of missile defense,
    - Russia and China call on the United States to abandon plans to deploy ground-based intermediate and shorter-range missiles in the Asia-Pacific region and Europe, as well as to accelerate the elimination of chemical weapons stockpiles,
    - the military-biological activities of the United States and allies cause serious concern and threaten Russia and China,

    - Russia and China intend to firmly uphold the inviolability of the results of the Second World War, resist attempts to distort history,
    - Beijing and Moscow will resist the interference of external forces in the internal affairs of sovereign countries. Leaders opposed "color revolutions"
    - the protection of democracy and human rights should not be used as an instrument of pressure on other countries,
    - the parties are ready to work together with all interested partners in the interests of promoting genuine democracy.
    The Russian Side notes the positive significance of the concept of the Chinese Side on building fellow "Communities with a common destiny of mankind" to strengthen the solidarity of the world community and join forces in responding to common challenges. The Chinese Side notes the positive significance of the efforts of the Russian Side to form a fair multipolar system of international relations.

            It is significant that at the meeting of the leaders of Russia and China, rhetoric uncharacteristic for the modern world is heard. Joint achievements are emphasized, plans for joint development are announced, the heads of state are proud of the level of relations and economic interaction.

            Against the backdrop of any negotiations between Western countries over the past few years, this is getting out of the knurled information rut. What do the countries of dollar democracy say? War, confrontation, sanctions, protectionism, coup d'état, the imposition of sodomy on an aggressive minority and everything destructive.

    the agreement allows to expand the US military presence in Slovakia
    Such a rush of the Americans over the past month (weapons to Ukraine, an additional contingent to Eastern Europe, negotiations, agreements, sanctions...) can only be explained by the desire to strengthen their positions in negotiations with Russia as much as possible. The United States does not want to be on the sidelines even in such an important matter as European security, but they want to dictate their own terms exclusively. About Slovakia. When there was one country, Czechoslovakia, since 1993 there have been two, and one of them is on the list of unfriendly states of Russia. Both countries are members of NATO and the EU, so the intricacies of American words are not entirely clear
    to expand the US military presence in Slovakia, no longer within the framework of NATO, but within the framework of bilateral relations

      NATO has an agreement with Russia on mutual claims, while Slovakia does not. It is possible to leave troops in Europe on a bilateral basis. Now they will do this with all NATO members and there will be nothing to show them. The only symmetrical threat in Latin America.

    The United States has acquired a new ally in Europe, ready to deploy an additional American military contingent on its territory.
    "Limitrophs" were created on the territory of Europe in order to fulfill the will of a stronger state, ready to give the lives of their citizens for the overlord.
    Until 1914 they carried out the will of Austria-Hungary, after 1938 the will of Nazi Germany, after 1945 the will of the USSR, and after the USSR they had a new patron, the United States. Well, they cannot exist alone and be free, a shepherd is always needed.

    If it enters into force, it will be another real response to our "ultimatum", and we will not be able to oppose the Americans in particular. The talks in Beijing so far do not carry anything concrete and dangerous for the West (including the United States), more like declarations of intent ... With a serious and strategic approach to the problem of state security, a set of necessary measures is taken in advance, but in our case this is somehow not very noticeable (more like a habitual situational response).
