General Hodges: I’m worried about the ability of the Russian Armed Forces to quickly redeploy

78
The commander of the US ground forces in Europe, Ben Hodges, in an interview with Defense News weekly, said that he was most worried about the ability of the Russian army to quickly redeploy.




“Russia's ability to quickly relocate a large number of its troops is the thing that worries me the most about what they can do. Our lack of intelligence and warning systems and their ability to quickly relocate a large number of their forces is not a good combination.- quotes Hodges TASS. – Thanks to the potential that they have invested in Kaliningrad, they can, if they wish, block access to the Baltic Sea. ”

According to him, the Russians "have in the Crimea the same potential of the Navy, with which they can block access to the Black Sea." The general is confident that "Moscow has the opportunity to create a zone with limited access to a quarter of the Mediterranean Sea with the help of air defense weapons that Russia supplied to Syria."

When asked about the capabilities of NATO in Europe, the general replied vaguely: "If the Russians ever attack ... This, by the way, is not inevitable." And again he began to talk about the need for solidarity of the North Atlantic Alliance.

Hodges also noted that NATO respects the agreement with the Russian Federation to ban the construction of bases near its borders. “The Alliance respects the Founding Act (on mutual relations, cooperation and security) between Russia and NATO, which states that no NATO bases will be created in the countries of the former Warsaw Pact,” he said. - This is not an international treaty. But it was an agreement. And therefore, I think that in order to preserve the unity of the alliance, most countries will not support the construction of NATO bases near (the borders) of Russia. ”

As for the US-Russian relations, then, according to the general, the United States "does not want to close the door." He stressed: “We need Russia. The world needs Russia to return to the global community. There are many areas where we would like to be able to work with them. ” This and the fight against the IG, and the creation of new transportation routes through the polar glaciers, and much more.

      He, the general, is not a politician, and therefore speaks about the military - he is worried about the combat readiness of the Armed Forces of the likely enemy, just as our generals should be concerned about the enthusiasm of NATO troops in the countries bordering us!
      True, most often, if not always, wars are unleashed by politicians, and the military have to end them ...

            Генерал заразился тормознутостью, от своих прибалтийских партнёров по НАТО. Уже три года проходят масштабные учения и проверки в войсках, а генерал только заметил, что ВС РФ могут:-"быстро передислоцировать большое количество своих войск".
            Hodges also noted that NATO respects the agreement with the Russian Federation on the ban on the construction of bases near its borders. “The Alliance respects the Founding Act (on mutual relations, cooperation and security) between Russia and NATO, which states that no NATO bases will be created in the countries of the former Warsaw Pact,” he said.
            It’s some kind of a madhouse, they are building an insolent base for special forces in the Baltic States, missile defense in Romania, Poland, the Czech Republic, the largest US base is Bonstyle in Kosovo. But Kosovo was part of Serbia, and that in turn was in Yugoslavia.

            В общем-то, я с Вашей иронией согласен... Однако, если взять даже какие-то 10 лет назад, то мы фактически в Черном и Балтийском море были почти "никто"...

            Now times have changed ... Where there are not enough ships - enough coastal units, aviation ...

        most of all he is concerned about the ability of the Russian army to quickly redeploy.


        Does he care about the ability of another army ???
        Doesn't his army bother him?
        The fact that his army is not capable of rapid movement does not bother him ???

          Exactly. Even Petya understood this!
          No one knows where the Russian “green men” may appear at the next moment, the planet warned Poroshenko.
          President Petro Poroshenko in an interview with CNN reported that in his authoritative opinion, Moscow’s actions in the Middle East are “irresponsible”.
          “I believe that Russia's behavior in Syria is absolutely irresponsible. The fact that they got involved in this operation occurs within the framework of their logic last year. First there was Crimea, then Donbass, then Syria. And the fourth, I don’t know, maybe Afghanistan will be, ”he said.
          According to Poroshenko, “no one knows where in the next moment Russian“ green men ”may appear.

          Ох, Петя! Давай уж откровенно! Говоришь про Афганистан, а в душе трясешься: "А вдруг Киев?"

      I think it’s not a matter of fear ... If you believe the article, Hodges speaks reasonably enough, without engaging in any kind of populist statements. He wants to cooperate. Well, I think, with mutual respect, such cooperation may have a right to exist. Again, if they will hear Russia, and not brush it off. Something like that ... Yes, and for the hundredth time I am convinced that they are listening ONLY to the strong. The law of the jungle, however ...

          В чем-то есть Ваша правда, Уважаемый Базилевс, ибо во многом лукавит Бен Ходжес. Причем лукавит достаточно "топорно", якобы по военному. Однако не спроста же генерал в одном интервью и себя покритиковал и нас похвалил. Хотя конечно сам факт подобного лавирования командующего сухопутными войсками в Европе уже говорит об определенных, и достаточно радикальных изменениях, в нашем противостоянии с Западом.

        Yes, he calms himself. Understanding that there were no armies left in Europe, they themselves destroyed them, which means that there is simply no one to fight against the Russians in the European theater of operations. From which, to put it mildly, concern about the speed of deployment of troops and rear in a special period. They themselves, historically, could never do this, and there are many objective reasons for this. From the remoteness of the theater of interest to them, and ending with the operational doctrine itself. In principle, they are not capable of taking action without having the overwhelming superiority of forces and means, than already all dreams of rapid deployment come to an end, not yet looming. This can be changed, but this does not require restructuring of the armed forces, but a change in the philosophy of their society. What is already impossible for them in principle, within the framework of today's paradigm.
        Consequently, the man is not quite an idiot, since he regrets that the army general is on clay feet.
        Well, this is his grief.

          формально енерал прав - постоянных баз НАТО вблизи наших границ нет. В договоре НАТО-РФ от 1997г. есть формулировка "substantial combat forces". Назвать таковыми ротационные контингенты в прибалтике нельзя. Да и тренд сейчас - не военные городки с макдональдсами и эстонками-прачками, а силы мобильного развертывания (что, кстати, в Прибалтике НАТО и демонстрировало во времена крымской эпопеи). Командный центр в Щецине и база - еще под вопросом. А прибалтийские скаутские лагеря под стандарт "база НАТО" вряд ли подходят. "База" в эпоху Второй холодной войны - это скорее уже фигура речи.

    “Russia's ability to quickly relocate a large number of its troops is the thing that bothers me the most from what they can do. Our lack of intelligence and warning systems and their ability to quickly relocate a large number of our forces is not a very good combination, Hasses quotes TASS.

    The other day, a plumber Vasily from our housing office spoke with similar words, after half a liter.
    And looks similar.

    I hope that we will not buy this bullshit anymore. All they want is to enslave us.


    Of all this expression of the American, only three words must be understood literally, namely: "НАМ НУЖНА РОССИЯ". Only it seems to me they need it, not the whole, but the dismembered one!

    With this recognition, Russia has proved that it is not necessary to have an advantage in armaments, but it is necessary to build the right tactics, knowing how the enemy is fighting. The ability to seize the necessary territories without a buildup of a large group - this is the moment of surprise, which did not fail us ....

    Hodges also noted that NATO respects the agreement with the Russian Federation to ban the construction of bases near its borders. “The Alliance respects the Founding Act (on mutual relations, cooperation and security) between Russia and NATO, which states that no NATO bases will be created in the countries of the former Warsaw Pact,” he said. - This is not an international treaty. But it was an agreement. And therefore, I think that in order to preserve the unity of the alliance, most countries will not support the construction of NATO bases near (the borders) of Russia. ”

    This is especially interesting to hear in the context of the Bundeswehr, if anything, can deploy its military group only after 2-3 months. There is something to think about. As one expert said while you are deploying there, the Baltic states and Poland will already be captured at the first stage. But Hodges and his nagging can be understood, his troops all cut and trim.

    что он несет?:"«Альянс уважает Основополагающий акт (о взаимных отношениях, сотрудничестве и безопасности) между Россией и НАТО, в котором говорится, что никаких баз НАТО не будет создаваться в странах бывшего Варшавского договора, – сказал он. – Это не международный договор. Но это было соглашением. И поэтому я думаю, что в целях сохранения единства альянса большинство стран не поддержит строительство баз НАТО вблизи (границ) России»" как это понять??? может перевод ошибочный???? Последние десятилетия НАТО только и занималось тем, что расширялось за счет стран бывшего варшавского договора! какой акт уважает НАТО????? Сейчас же расширение продолжается! НАТО наращивает силы в Польше в Прибалтике, В румынии венгрии,! Активно действует в Грузии и в Украине. Спешно создаются и наращиваются силы быстрого реагирования! Можно сделать вывод, что НАТОвский хенерал врет, нагло и цинично врет!!!!

И это при том, что флот, как таковой, у нас пока хиленький, однако все в комплексе уже образовало мощный кулак... А уж на ЧФ, когда ВСЕ 6 Варшавянок встанут на боевое дежурство, натовскому флоту будет ну очень неуютно наносить визиты в Черное море... А френ его знает, где эта "черная дыра" находится...

    They, what really until today considered our army at the level of the 90s? Well then, even there are no words, some letters add up to profanity. But since it has already begun to bother, it will continue to bother.
