Pentagon: Exercises alone are not enough to support the allies in Europe

28
Pentagon’s deputy head, Robert Wark, said at a conference in London that NATO exercises and other actions taken are not enough to support allies in Europe, reports RIA News.




Wark again criticized Moscow for the Ukrainian crisis and recalled that “the United States, through its European initiative, significantly increased its participation in NATO exercises held in recent months to reassure our allies that we will be there (in the region), if necessary , and also to deter further aggressive behavior. ”

He also mentioned other “investments in exercises in the most vulnerable countries, especially those bordering Russia”.

"But, - he said, - these actions ... are probably not enough. "

In this regard, Wark advised to revert to the plans of the alliance to "strengthen deterrence with the help of non-nuclear weapons."

The agency reminds that Sea Breeze-2015 exercises are underway in Ukraine, which will end on September 12, and in the near future, NATO will hold military maneuvers in Europe promising to be the most ambitious stories alliance.

      Yes, they probably have a double salary at bases in Europe, as we had in the groups of troops, so they want to increase their presence. It’s not for you to swallow dust in Iraq or Afghanistan. Look at the photo "dark-skinned" what are satisfied. yes

        200 military bases in Germany and the largest US base abroad in Kosovo are not enough to support the allies.

      It is necessary to take advantage of the moment when they massively in the whole history gather on their exercises and cover them with one rocket

    Much more than that. Although one more action remains (it is the last in the literal sense of the word) - direct aggression against Russia.

      the joke about the collapsing US economy is kind of dumb. 2,3% GDP growth in 2015 - not very similar to the collapse, no?

        The observation is correct. But the growth of US GDP can be caused by not the real sector of the economy. There are financial, stock, etc. Fraudulent "little things" (money from the air). And in this they have become proficient.

          U.S. GDP growth may also be due to the non-real sector of the economy. There are financial, stock, etc. Fraudulent "little things" (money from the air).

          but where does the money come from the air? What does this have to do with GDP? The catalysts were increased consumption, a revival of the labor market and export growth, even despite a stronger dollar. Hedgehog it’s clear that this is not forever, but what’s not fitting for us, whose GDP has been steadily falling this year, is to make jokes about anyone’s economy, whether it be the States or the hots.

    Sadness is a misfortune, however ....... the main actions leave the European theater of operations and mix into Syria, and then the money of the NATO taxpayers goes to the bearded men ....... Work is afraid to be left without money and all oblivion

    Well, this is a direct hint that we need a "small victorious" war, HERE ONLY LOST: China is "worried", and Russia, and Iran, and the DPRK are everywhere the enemies of the "exclusive" nation ..

    The Americans will climb head over heels in Ero.pop. They will tear down heavy weapons and re-preserve the existing ones. Deployed staff bases. And pay for everything (except for the content of their DzhiAi) will be allies in NATA.
    Not only have the refugees been hung around the old woman’s neck, but now they’ll load military ammunition from above ... The poor old woman’s legs would not break.
    A direct benefit to the Yankees: the satellites will need to rearm, and money from the EURO economy will flow into their pocket. You look, and Penguins on such an occasion will shove other stale equipment. All the benefits!

    the joke about the collapsing US economy is kind of dumb. 2,3% GDP growth in 2015 - not very similar to the collapse, no?

    If you follow the news, you know that the key Fed rate is now at an extremely unhealthy level of 0,25% per annum, and that even the Fed’s intention to raise its interest rate on a quarter-percent in September almost led to a collapse of US stock markets. The Fed representative had to reassure investors, explaining that nothing had been decided yet, and that they might not raise the rate. Only after this the hysteria in the markets ended and the uncontrolled drop stopped.
    It is clear that in such conditions it’s ridiculous to even think about raising the rate by 8% - a much more modest increase will reliably drive the US economy into a difficult recession. However, it is also impossible not to raise the rate, if only for the simple reason that a near-zero rate is guaranteed to finish off the entire “social network”.
    As you can see, the choice among the Fed bureaucrats is now even more difficult than 15 years ago ... And if someone tells you that the US GDP is growing and the dollar is getting stronger, ask him a simple question: how is the US Fed going to solve the problem with the interest bid. Trying to give a reasonable answer to this question will inevitably lead to a sharp decrease in the level of optimism of your opponent.

      I doubt it. Well, will marketers increase the risk-free rate, as was already in the zero ones? So what? The thing is that they are not protected and situevina will be like with the bubble '08, or what? Come on, European and Chinese mess will bring back the appeal of the US Treasury sub-rubs. And no one
