Expert: NATO exercises in Europe showed that the United States in the event of war will be defeated

The Trident Juncture-2015 maneuvers, conducted in the fall in Europe, proved that America, led by Obama, would lose the war, RIA News opinion of former CIA analyst advising the US Congress, Peter Vincent Praia.


Expert: NATO exercises in Europe showed that the United States in the event of war will be defeated


“During the exercise, the United States sent to the Baltic States, which they consider to be potentially vulnerable to Russia, only about a thousand soldiers. Such a demonstration does not compare with the Russian military exercises in Siberia, which were attended by 160 thousands of servicemen, which is seven times more than the troops of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia combined, and the actions of the Obama administration can be more annoying than scare ” - Pry writes in an article for the Washinton Times.

“A thousand American soldiers in the Baltic States could have a deterrent effect during the Cold War, but not today, when the US nuclear potential is outdated,” the expert believes.

According to him, "American nuclear weapons are not something that has not been modernized, it is not even being maintained in a normal state." At the same time, “Russia has third-generation high-tech nuclear weapons, which do not produce radioactive fallout, as well as improved neutron warheads and no American analogues with an electromagnetic pulse,” the analyst writes.

He notes with regret that Obama is holding a climate summit in response to the terrorist attacks in Paris, and "the reduction of the military budget has thrown the United States Armed Forces in many ways to the level of the Second World War."

“Washington’s struggle against Daesh in a year and a half did not bring any results, and the actions in Libya led to the creation of another paradise for terrorists,” the author states.

“If the NATO exercises sent a signal to Russia, it speaks of the US vulnerability, not their strength,” Pry concludes.

    Any propaganda about vulnerability is just a message to empathy, the purpose of which is to reduce alertness. There is a game where bluffing is an integral component, from which side do not look, this is part of the information war.

          So, here the most important thing is "American nuclear weapons are not only not modernized, they are not even maintained in good condition." While “Russia has third-generation high-tech nuclear weapons that do not produce radioactive fallout, as well as improved neutron warheads and an American counterpart with an electromagnetic pulse” Give the money to the poor American military! How can such a budget officer fight these Russians!

      The stubborn fact is that NATO forces, or rather the United States, are heavily "dispersed" around the world. Ours too, but only 1/5 of the land. Therefore, initially we have more opportunities to collect a large group in the right place. But if this does not give the desired positive result, then mobilized and pulled together, the entire colossus of NATO will naturally surpass us both in military and economic terms. Yes, they have stupidly more people at times. soldier

    The army is then strong when it is a single organism, a single fist, united by one goal, one desire. I sadly imagine a fighter from a Lithuanian village who does not understand the commands in a foreign language, who fiercely wants to die for a Turkish harlot, tortured by some Erdogan, somewhere in Syria! Nata is not an army, these are armed people, such as gangs, who want to quietly drift off from hostilities, at the earliest opportunity, because he is all in a drum! negative

    .... Some in Europe and overseas HISTORY teaches nothing !!!
    ... Yes, and do not read their smart predecessors:
    "" "Russia is dangerous for the meagerness of its needs."
    “A preventive war against Russia is suicide because of the fear of death.”
    “It’s impossible to win Russians, we have seen this for hundreds of years. But Russians can be instilled in false values ​​and then they will win themselves. ”
    "Even the most favorable outcome of the war will never lead to the disintegration of the main force of Russia, which is based on millions of Russians."
    “Do not hope that once you take advantage of Russia's weakness, you will receive dividends forever. Russians always come for their money. And when they come, don’t rely on the Jesuit agreements that you have signed, supposedly supporting you. They are not worth the paper on which they are written. Therefore, it’s worth playing honestly with Russians, or not playing at all. ”(((OTTO von BISMARK (1815-1898) -“ iron chancellor ”, German politician, author of the famous aphorism“ Russians slowly harness, but drive fast. ”))

    "The Russians are laughing at us ..." said one astute French observer of the failed American landing in Portugal. Most of the amphibians simply wither in the sand during the Trident-Juncture-2015 maneuvers, which NATO has called "the most ambitious exercise of the decade." Originally intended as a message to V. Putin, the fiasco was not covered in the US media, but was noticed by the European and Russian press ... "

    The guy still smokes something. There is no nuclear weapon without radioactive fallout, and neutron warheads are generally interesting information. In terms of psychiatry. Yes, and the FSB will probably be interested. And what about weapons with an electromagnetic pulse, is something strange - is it EW or what?

      Bluffing is not bluffing. But since the end of World 2, the United States has not won a single war. However, maybe this was not the goal. However, since that time they have never met a worthy adversary. In the same place where there was at least some resistance and at least some normal military equipment, they suffered stupid defeats.
      And to bomb the Papuans with bows from 10 kilometer high, and from B-52 ... This is their favorite pastime.

          Iraq sample 1991 is it "Papuans with bows"?

          In general, it was a figurative comparison. Throw the country with tomahawks, level the cities from B-52, knock out anything that at least somehow resists remote strikes.
          The power of the US-led coalition was several orders of magnitude greater than that of Iraq. This is called the US war with the Papuans. In another way, well, nothing. And nowhere.

          Give an example of a successful / unsuccessful war of the USSR / RF with a country similar to Iraq?

          To begin with, the USSR / RF did not invade anywhere under a far-fetched pretext? There were small-scale skirmishes. The Chinese in Daman were simply leveled with the island. Afghanistan - I think we won, the goals were achieved. Losses differ by an order of magnitude. Unlike Vietnam, where the Americans simply staged the genocide of the local population, but did not achieve their goals.
          If we talk about military operations, the last large-scale operation was in the Crimea. To say that the whole world wow ... l, to say nothing. Not a single victim, they simply did not give anything to do, they did not give anything to disrupt the will of the people. Are there such operations in the history of the United States, and indeed of the West?
          Well, it’s ridiculous to compare the comparison of coalition operations with the US chief and the operations of our air forces in Syria. From there, only boltology and some appearance of violent activity. However, one should not expect anything else from them.

        Actually, why should they win the war?
        Destroy everything like in Iraq, bring dollars to build a McDonald's, and it went well. And you get in your shit until Easter, while we take the costs of "democratization" with your oil.
        That's all the tasks completed.
        They build Russian schools and hospitals. And they don’t especially flaunt the whole world. Here is an example:
        The Chinese, in Afghanistan, put humanitarian aid in the school built by the "shuravi", in the form of dishes in the dining room.
        On each mug, the face of Mao Zedong.
        Journalist asks children who built the school?
        Children on the mug show- This uncle ...
        This is an example of an indirect effect on the population.

    According to the census of 1937 of the year and 1959 of the year, in the war of 41-45 of the year, the USSR military (MILITARY) killed about 8 million, and from Germany, also the military, 8,5 million. And this is taking into account those who died from wounds after the war. So before you carry this, study the matter more thoroughly, and do not pick up garbage in the Internet garbage.

    No one will let anyone anywhere! The modern war, especially for the United States, is missile strikes and aviation. This is also confirmed by all recent military incidents in Europe and the Middle East.
    Why do they look with apprehension at the large-scale exercises of Russia, because the United States, especially in Europe, does not have this anymore. "Scorched Earth" is US tactics.
    And Europe, that in the days of the USSR, that now it is a small barricade between the USA and Russia. Which in general will receive from both those and those .... so along the way, the rocket did not fly, missed ....

    If the NATO exercises sent a signal to Russia, then ...
    An air kiss is also a signal, but in direction it differs from a signal of a military threat!

    Interesting; if

    “Russia has third-generation high-tech nuclear weapons that do not produce radioactive fallout, as well as improved neutron warheads and an American-style superweapon with an electromagnetic pulse”


    then why does the US still exist and provoke? am They scare, scare, but they themselves are not in any way afraid; The Pentagon is not fighting on the battlefield, but for the budget.

    His work is probably the same, as they say, nothing personal, just business, and if not, then another "liberast", and to hell with him, let him hiss for now, and if you need such a sting, we will tear off the head.

    Mr. Pry, is trying to beg the loot from the Senate for the Pentagon. His speech is purely for the American consumer. To make any conclusions or conclusions on this basis makes no sense.

    I think all such statements by experts are aimed primarily at knocking out the military budget. That's all, cried to the people that they say they are weak at all, let's send taxes to a valiant army and overturn the aggressor. Something like this. hi
