Carter: Washington adjusts its military presence in Europe

America, due to disagreements with Russia, is adjusting the size of its forces in Europe, but has no plans to return to the level of the Cold War, Pentagon chief Ashton Carter said at a meeting in Pearl Harbor (Hickam Air Force Base).




“We are making some adjustments (of forces) in Europe, recognizing that Russia is choosing the wrong course, which we had hoped for, it will choose ... But we will not recreate what was during the Cold War regarding our (military) capabilities in Europe, this is not the scenario for the actions the Russians are taking, ”the minister said. RIA News.

Carter again accused the Russian Federation of "hybrid wars" and the use of "green men" in the Crimea and Ukraine.

“In this regard, Washington must use a new kind of opportunity,” he said. “This is a new kind of opportunity, the Europeans and NATO have asked for it, and we will provide them.”

    Everything as usual! The United States has no other option but to blame Russia for meddling in the Ukrainian conflict, since the gentlemen from Washington will never admit that the crisis on the territory of Independence is their business, and Russia is following the path it has chosen. There is no way back! And let Carter calculate how many bases all over the world the States have, and how many wars have been unleashed over the past 20 years. And to the Pentagon’s “new opportunities”, there will be a new unpredictable response from Russia, for everyone should sit in his house and not get into other people's gardens!

      Do not worry so. there is no money in the US military budget for a full-scale deployment of troops in Europe. Under Obama, money from the military budget flowed into social support for the social support of the Obama electorate of loafers

      In the USA, consumer sentiment is growing, and the ability of the population to satisfy their needs at the expense of other nations is falling. And here is such a bummer with Ukraine and the Crimea ... They well understand that the actions of Russia are a response to their interference in the affairs of Ukraine. And now they are building innocent eyes like virgin ....

    They can’t get rid of their lordly ways. Not they, but we choose our course, I note, and for ourselves, and not for them. It is time for us to move on to their habits and also hope that they choose the course that is acceptable to us.

      The hegemon is no longer able to hegemon. The resource is running out. Money runs out, power runs out

      I would very much like your words to fall into the ears of the Lord ...
      The hegemonism is at the limit of the joint policies of the BRICS countries, where the first fiddle is played by China, Russia, India, Brazil ... And the blow falls on the most sensitive place of the hegemon - on its financial system. Russia and China are withdrawing customers from the dollar zone, transferring settlements to national currencies, mutual settlements are not serviced by the dollar anymore - that makes mortal longing in the eyes of Uncle Scrooge!
      But the states still remain the No. 1 military power. And this is a fact, whether someone likes it or not. But the gangster becomes uncomfortable: the rivals have grown up, but he can’t do anything with them ... He is afraid of being maimed to death during distribution. So you have to crap at the doorstep of one, take on another show off. Putting jackals out of the hype, closing stores with goods, so that the opponents of "shit democracy" get nervous, maybe their stomachs will get sick from internal emotions. And then it’s definitely not up to the hegemon they will already be ...
      And leadership flows like water through fingers. The concept of 1,5 wars was not canceled, but the theater of war was changed. Now the main direction of efforts is the APR. the main enemy is China. The regionals do not have enough forces for its neutrolization. Therefore, 60-70% of the fleet is sent there. But Russia was entrusted to Europe. But she is not particularly keen to get 3 courtesy lessons. Therefore, let’s direct our garrisons there, we will anchor the situation ... After all, no big war is expected in Europe ... Therefore, for now, the essence and the matter should be tried to crush (undermine the power of the world's second largest economy) China with its claims to the role of world leader.
      I really want to split the cooperation of the RF-PRC, to pull India over to our side ... Again, to create a comfortable environment for ourselves, my beloved. And here all means are good.

    The answer is completely adequate. Moreover, the citizens of the PMR, and these are RUSSIANS, only breathe more freely! It was impossible to bring out a full-blooded 14OA of the Russian Federation! And this was done by alarmists and provocateurs.

    Americans just to start a war, they don’t know what war is, and they spread death all over the world.
    They don’t look the truth, they don’t show the results of their actions. They live and feed on the blood of non-wine victims around the world: Vietnamese, Yugoslavs, Iraqis, Afghans, Ossetians, Libyans, Serbs, Ukrainians - and all of them are few.
    What the United States brings to the world: lies, deceit, wars, devastation, the deaths of millions of people, and in no way can be fed up with the blood of the world's peoples.

    Mikhan just in the morning restored his health with a honeycomb, started the day perfectly. And the level of patriotism began to roll over)))

    No need to be angry .. You need to be calmer! What are you all so excited gentlemen ..)))?

    That's right, here are just the gentlemen in Gazprom and the hell with them, and we are comrades in misfortune.

    America, due to disagreements with Russia, adjusts the size of its forces in Europe

    In vain they trump their differences and do not heed the voice of reason

    All I understand is to step on your own cuckoo pip to a characteristic crunch and yell at a nearby person with a wild cry so that he leaves, and when he leaves, to deprive him of a bank account in favor of the victim ...... something like that !?
    They beat them a hundred pounds at school, but we’ll have to knock out all this bucket from them now.

      The states remind me of an elephant climbing into a china shop, shitting elephant trees there, scaring and dispersing the inhabitants of the shop.
      And now this cattle wants someone to clean up after it, and also sheltered and fed the frightened tenants. Moreover, this should be done by countries that are absolutely not involved in the pogrom.
      And * exceptional * - they will register 10 thousand Latinos at home, leaving the Majahideen to impotent Europe!
      Simple way ... and, according to users, - with taste! Now, those who refused to accept the Arabs can be blamed for heartlessness, intolerance and other shitty sins!
      Come to a new round of information war!

    Is it Ashton Carter, or Vitali Klitschko?



    It seems not a big difference, well, if only in growth.

    The “American military” is present all over the world, as it were, as if by a small number of people — they act as “small dirty tricks” for money for local provocateurs. And a kind of “beacon” for those who are ready to sell their homeland to please overseas “importers of democracy”. WAR, DEATH and DESTRUCTION - wherever the "smiling exceptional" climb. Accordingly, the attitude on the ground towards them should be equivalent. Business, trade? This is an equal relationship. Any attempts by English speakers to intervene in their way of life - should receive an adequate response: from ignore to .... Well, to the measures that have historically spoken to them!

    They are used to the fact that they have not been punished for a long time, and the boiling point is already very close and they will receive in full.

    The enemy is cunning and treacherous. And that the United States is the enemy of doubt does not arise. And all that they do is aimed at the destruction of Russia.

    The United States adjusts its military action in Europe to its interests, and then Russia can show its military action on the American continent.

    “We are making some adjustments (forces) in Europe, recognizing that Russia does not choose the course that we hoped, it will choose ... But we will not recreate what was during the Cold War regarding our (military) capabilities in Europe, this is not the scenario for the actions that the Russians are taking, ”RIA Novosti quoted the minister as saying.


    Correction is when they correct their mistakes, rather than looking for others. In your place, gentlemen, proofreaders, you need not edit all your sermons and psalms, but roll them up and try to write from scratch. Do you have to review and review the scripts? Take any of your production, the last act is the same: everything is in shit, and you are in a white tailcoat.
    Whatever the Russians do in their land or with their neighbors (by mutual agreement), this should not bother you. At best, clap your hands until our patience burst and we slammed ... either the door or the lid of the wooden box. Our course is right, we don’t need pilots-idiots. Compare with yours, if that:
