The Pentagon plans to increase spending on the implementation of the “European Security Initiative” program, which aims to expand the US military presence in Europe, reports RIA News Post Financial Times.


Media: America will increase military spending on the implementation of the European program


According to the chief financial officer of the Pentagon, Mike McCord, “a specific amount is still under discussion, but we are talking about a fairly significant increase (the draft budget of the Ministry of Defense for 2017 will be presented in February)”.

"Such measures should be the message of Russia in the light of the confrontation in Ukraine, as well as reassure allies who doubt the US readiness to ensure their security," the newspaper writes.

Pentagon Assistant Head Brian McKeon believes that the increase in spending on European operations will also be a response to Moscow’s violation of the INF Treaty.

“We are investing in funds, some of which are already fixed on paper, and some will only appear in the budget for 2017 a year or the costs will be increased. They (Russia) will see all these measures in our budget and, we believe, will begin to understand that our response does not make their situation safer, ”said McKeon.

Earlier, US Secretary of Defense Carter said that Washington is “investing” in technologies that are most relevant to repelling Moscow’s provocations. ”“ We are modernizing and developing our operational containment and defense plans in the light of changes in Russia's behavior, ”he said.

    At first, all the armies of the countries of Europe turned into amusing troops, and now they are banking.

        How can military spending be increased with such external debt?! ... They will also ruin their financial system and the world.

      "The Pentagon plans to increase spending on the European Security Initiative program" - modern overseas conquistadors take control of the Old World ...! The Americans are worried not so much about Russia, most likely, but about the rise of national consciousness in the leading countries of Europe! They cannot help but be alarmed by the growing popularity of the left in Germany, with the thesis "Yankee go home!" and the nationalists of Le Pen in France, as well as the petty grumbling of other countries that historically had a good relationship with Russia: Serbia, Montenegro ...! And only the corrupt whores from the governments of the Baltic states, Poland and Bulgaria please the American masters!

      America will increase military spending on the implementation of the European program "

      Yes you !! USA is the most peaceful country on Earth !! laughing
      ..According to the report of the Ministry of Defense of the USA-abroad, military facilities are located in 38 foreign countries and territories. US military groups consist of 179 bases in Germany and 109 in Japan
      - .. according to a report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) From 2010 to 2014, Americans sent weapons to at least 94 countries

      The country that received the most weapons is South Korea (9)%, followed by the United Arab Emirates with 8% and Australia with 8%. The United States accounts for 31% of the world's arms exports, after Russia with 27% and China with 5%.
      ... the slogan "Join the navy and you can see the world" turned out to be prophetic: the American military presence is now in 171 countries of the world. http://www.entrynews.com/article/68733.html

    Favorite phrase of US officials ...
    we send a signal or a message from RUSSIA with threats ...

    And RUSSIA, to be honest with the lantern, these messages ... you can wipe them because you need them more than we do.

    Further, in the light of such statements, the United States is forced to increase the burden on its budget ... because you need to keep a lot of vassals screaming foreheads to the threat from the east, and I believe that sooner or later this will undermine the US economy, coupled with other problems, the heavy burden on the United States.

    to reflect the provocations of Moscow

    So far, only the west has been caught in provocations, but also in outright lies.
    Really Europeans do not see that the United States is pushing them against their foreheads and are planning to fight with their hands too.

    So the United States initially sought to raise spending on NATO defense, but there wasn’t any reason. Well, we’ve come up with an excuse and everything fell into place! The herd, as always, is carried out by the shepherd.

    They launder money on this, for example: we (the USA) send money for weapons or something else, and the actual money goes into whose pocket and all the logic.

    I wonder how many corpses need to be threshed by terrorists in Europe so that they understand what kind of war they need to prepare for? After all, someone sane in Europe has already noticed, in spite of the enormous money and teachings, there is no longer security in Europe. So maybe you are not expecting the enemy from there?

    These Europeans with marsarsniks will not understand in any way that if the war starts, they will not succeed in serving a prosperous Europe. No way dumbasses will understand that there will be no winner, that democratic Europe will turn into a zone contaminated by radiation.

    After the meeting between Putin and Obama in Paris, another US ultimatum on Assad’s departure and the transfer of Turkish troops to the Syrian border, the likelihood that the Great War can be avoided is becoming less and less.

    Pay attention - the flag on "Khrushchev" is Estonian ...


    Classes are in progress at an Estonian school. Teacher: "Children, now we will do an oral essay on the theme of our flag." Children stretch their hands. Teacher, tell Peters. Peters: "The blue color of the flag is the color of our clean lakes, which are s / a / s / e / r / a / u / t / Soviet occupiers" Well done Peters, sit down five. Tell me, Lymochka. Laimochka: "The black color of the flag is the color of our fertile land, which is s / a / s / e / r / a / y / t / Soviet occupiers" Well done Laimochka, sit down five. And Little Johnny all this time stretched out his hand and finally he was given the floor. Little Johnny gets up and burns: "And the white color of your flag is the color of Siberian snow, which will be trampled by Lymochka, Peters and their parents !!!"
    A very old joke

    expanding US military presence in Europe

    Europeans are bred as they want. At the same time, old Europe cannot put Poland and the Baltic states in its place and is forced to follow the path imposed on it. The EU already just needs a surgical operation to remove the Russophobic tumor.

    Well, of course: they have already leaked ISIS. And the next battlefield is Europe, as it has already been two times. Where two - there is a third.

    What kind of message should be sent to striped ducks so that they stay at least 5000 km from our outskirts?
    And why would we not place s-400 and other nishtyaks in Cuba or Nicaragua? What is the problem?

    So with you and before that it was unsafe. And it always has been. Russia has always fought alone, and the allies were only on paper.
