The United States is studying the issue of increasing the number of its ships in Europe

Against the background of the increased activity of the Russian Navy in the Black and Mediterranean seas, as well as in the Pacific Ocean, the United States thought about sending more ships to Europe, reports Look with reference to the Chief of Staff of the US Navy, John Richardson.




“There has been no such activity of ships and submarines (RF) for at least 20 years,” said Richardson. “We are currently discussing the question of whether we should increase our presence in Europe and the Pacific to preserve the necessary balance of power.”

He was “seriously concerned” with the evidence of telecommunications cable monitoring carried out by Russian submarines.

“It is very difficult to estimate such traffic in any other sea region of the world,” the chief of staff said. “This could be a threat to any other global system, an information system that is associated with prosperity, security-related.”

Russia is trying to increase its presence in the oceans, “in order to establish itself as a serious player on the world stage, and in the long term,” Richardson said.

According to him, Russia has recently demonstrated the quality of its forces, “having produced from Caspian ships flotilla launching cruise missiles at targets in Syria, "" These are significant opportunities, a serious demonstration, "the chief of staff added.

        Judging by all the dill, it remains to be puzzled by the question: dig out the Black Sea 2. So that their partners from NATO could safely swim into the parking lot.

          So that their partners from NATO could safely swim into the parking lot.

          Spaniards: (background noise) ... says A-853, please turn 15 degrees south to avoid a collision with us. You are moving directly at us, a distance of 25 nautical miles.

          Americans: (background noise) ... we advise you to turn 15 degrees north to avoid a collision with us.

          Spaniards: The answer is no. Repeat, turn 15 degrees south into
          collision avoidance.

          Americans (other voice): The captain of the ship of the United States of America speaks to you. Turn 15 degrees north to avoid a collision.

          Spaniards: We do not consider your proposal either possible or adequate; we advise you to turn south by 15 degrees so as not to crash into us.

          Americans (in elevated tones): CAPTAIN RICHARD JAMES HOWARD SAYS WITH YOU, COMMANDER OF THE USS LINCOLN AIRCRAFT, Navy OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, SECOND LARGE OF THE SHIP. 2 CRUISERS, 6 FIGHTERS, 4 SUBMARines AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT SHIPS ACCOMPANY US. I DO NOT “ADVISE” YOU, I “ORDER” TO CHANGE YOUR COURSE IN 15 DEGREES IN NORTH. OTHERWISE, WE WILL BE FORCED TO TAKE THE NECESSARY MEASURES TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR SHIP. PLEASE IMMEDIATELY REMOVE OUR COURSE !!!!

          Spaniards :: Juan Manuel Salas Alcantara speaks to you. Us 2 people. We are accompanied by our dog, dinner, 2 bottles of beer and the canary, which is now sleeping. We are supported by the Cadena Dial de La Coruna radio station and the 106 Extreme Sea Sites channel. We are not going to turn anywhere, given that we are on land and are the lighthouse of the A-853 of the Finisterra Strait of the Galician coast of Spain. We have no idea what place we have in size among the Spanish lighthouses. You can take all the fucking ... measures you think are necessary and do whatever you want to ensure the safety of your fucking ... ship that will crash into cliffs. Therefore, we strongly recommend you again
          do the most meaningful thing: change your course to 15 degrees south to avoid a collision.

          Americans: Ok, accepted, thanks.

          What does the state have to do with it?

          This liberal ideology is spreading. States are just uneducated carriers of this vile ideology.

          The Russian Federation still resists liberalism, if only because it has a president who does not want the destruction of his country.

          Take Ukraine. Most of the population, saturated with false values, behaves like a herd of primates.

        The war has ended. The world was divided and legislated. Decades later, in Helsinki, this was once again confirmed by an international act. These documents are legally valid so far. In the nineties, when we left Europe, no binding documents were signed. And, legally, Russia, as the successor of the USSR, can return to the Baltic states, and Poland, and to Germany. Both came out and returned. It would be enough real forces

          Logging in is easy. Holding and controlling is difficult.

          To keep it necessary to impose the correct ideology. And this is a matter of time equal to the growing up of a generation.

          Countries are captured in other ways. Example Ukraine.

          An example, an unsuccessful RF. But in the Russian Federation everything is not so firm. The educational system is not reduced to the level of state strategic security.
          Although the Army and Navy are already on top.
