NATO financial pyramid for the Baltic States

Once again, an interesting pattern is confirmed:

if it’s about NATO’s combat readiness, it’s about internal information consumption by one or another country, which enters the alliance, the rhetoric looks like this: “We are occupying Russia in a maximum of a week.” An example is the “diplomatic” statement by the Prime Minister of Turkey, Mr. Chavushoglu, made last week;

if it’s about NATO’s combat readiness, it’s started at a general meeting, and most importantly, by military officials of the North Atlantic military bloc, then the rhetoric changes exactly the opposite: “Russia is preparing for anti-NATO aggression! Guard!"

In principle, this logic of representatives of NATO member states in the context of NATO-Russia is quite understandable. The possibility of the "occupation" of Russia by NATO forces is claimed by political camps who are trying to score certain rating points at any cost. But about the fact that Russia itself “can occupy”, it is the military ranks of the alliance with subtext to politicians shout: “Give me money!” In the mode of such a combination of NATO rhetoric, it existed practically from its very first day, except that the Soviet Union

Naturally, such controversial rhetoric of NATO members who are sufficiently strong militarily unnerves the youngonatsev, whose army is most often limited to a couple or three amusing regiments and a dozen armored vehicles units bought from old-timers. The nervous state was once again noted by representatives of the Baltic countries, and it was noted after a new statement by the head of the European command of the US ground forces, General Ben Hodges, that Russia could take the territory of the Baltic "sisters" for several days if desired. According to Hodges, the current state on the eastern borders of NATO is not entirely useless, but close to that, and NATO is unlikely to be able to protect the Balts who broke into the arms of democracy from "Russian aggression."

A similar idea was recently presented by the commander-in-chief of NATO forces in Europe, American General Philip Breedlove. According to him, the eastern frontiers of NATO cannot, of course, be called helpless, but they are “clearly vulnerable.”

After these words, the Baltic natophiles, having clasped their knees with their hands, plunged into hard thoughts about what such statements would be made by the main friends of the Baltic states? In Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian media there has been a wave of critical statements about this position of American generals. They say that it is you who allow yourself there - “we are in you” (or, more correctly, you have entered us), and therefore let us protect the Baltic States from any aggression.

It seems that historical the desire of the Baltic “elites” to hide behind someone’s back, just to be able to yell piercingly from behind (then this effect is suddenly called “occupation”) prevents these same elites from being at least an honest with their citizens. Indeed, it is clear to any adequate representative of the Baltic society (well, one whose brain has not yet completely turned into a Euro-gel) that American generals are trying to fulfill the financial tasks assigned to them by their statements.

The problem of the Baltic countries is that their military budget, so it happened, does not fall short of the nationwide standards - 2% of GDP. Thus, in 2016, Lithuania plans to develop approximately 1,48% of GDP in the military sphere. Latvian military spending in 2015 amounted to slightly more than 1% of GDP. The leaders are Estonians. They solemnly promise that next year they will even surpass the NATO bar and spend 2,09% of GDP on the defense sector.

It turns out that NATO generals Hodges and Breedlove are such motivators in uniform with big stars. In order not to disappoint the Baltic "partners" at all, they declare that, they say, not everything is so bad for you, guys - even a lot of 30-year-old German armored personnel carriers bought - wow! At the same time, the generals need to somehow unwind the financial pyramid, in comparison with which all the offspring of the Mavrodi are real babble. NATO's financial pyramid - this is “MMM”, like “MMM” ... I didn’t buy “shares” - wait for “Russian aggression”!

NATO financial pyramid for the Baltic States

The motivation, as they say, is transcendental, especially if we take into account the fact that the level of anti-Russian paranoia in the camp of the Young Europeans-Youngonatsev is brought by the same motivators to acceptable grades themselves. Now any sneeze of Vladimir Putin is perceived as a veiled order to occupy Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn, taken together, and from there invade Poland and then - according to the extensive NATO list. And if it were not for the valiant Ukrainian army, which, as it turns out, continues to restrain the "hordes of Russian troops" in the Donbas, then the Balts would be morally difficult. That is why, in the Estonian clinics, ghouls from the Nazi battalions of Ukraine are put on their feet, apparently counting on the fact that in the absence of real military assistance from Washington and Brussels, it is these “rebels” who will save the Baltic coast from the “Russian aggression”.

If suddenly one of the Baltic partners gets acquainted with this material, really confident that Russia is about to attack the Baltic States, and that in order to counter the “Russian aggression” in NATO, it is necessary to “list” the 2% of GDP urgently, then allow to make a mini appeal: partners, well, how much can you believe in this, I'm sorry, scam? I don’t know about you, but we in Russia have scammers who send SMS to mobile phones in the style: “Dad (moms, grandfather, women, brother, friend), I have big problems, immediately throw 300 rubles to this number . There is no time to explain. I'll call you back myself. ” The gullible people send ... And since when did you suddenly become so gullible that you are ready to send your taxes only in order for the American generals to have new stars, and the American economy would be able to delay the collapse of their astronomical debt?

By the way, for the Baltic partners, the simple question is: why are the years in the Soviet Union, whose people rebuilt the Baltic republics, turning them from farmstead farms into a huge country window with a demographic boom, universities, theaters, schools, a developed trading system? occupation, and the voluntary-compulsory system of coroners and dues for NATO with the invitation of American soldiers so that they can urinate on the flower beds in the center of the city - is this democracy? Try to answer this question for yourself, and right after that it will become clear why Breedlove and Hodges arrange demonstration horror stories for you ...

    Everything is somewhat different - the Balts see in a dream how they are "occupied" by Russia, because then it will be possible to rebuild their economy by hiding behind the broad Russian back with someone else's hands.

      In that case, they just had to declare war on Russia, and after 5 minutes surrender, as in a famous joke. However, no, not in a hurry. They honestly practice their 30 pieces of silver, receiving for this master's approving patting at the withers.

        The Russians have already restored everything in the Baltic states once. And what? For the Euro promises and Schengen visas, the Baltic states themselves destroyed everything: factories, nuclear power plants. And now Russia will occupy us, but restore so that there is something to destroy to please the European Union. No fools. Nibble. yes poisoned fish.

      NATO financial pyramid for the Baltic States

      The idea is correct, but I would look at it more and more broadly: "NATO's financial pyramid for Europe."

      So the Americans have a powerful army, because they fed their military-industrial complex 2% in Europe throughout the Cold War.
      The Baltic states simply merge into the track rutted for decades.
      It’s us fools who built everything in the Cold War. And the Americans all milked.
      This is probably what the winner of the war should do. Only laughter is that we won, and the Americans "warmed up".

      And now, attention is the question! Will we, Russia, be a peaceful nation for the United States?
      Yes, for no carriage they do not recognize us as peaceful and kind, such money is at stake!
      I don’t understand why EUROPEANS have been eating this all for decades ... here’s the answer to the question of how much anti-Russian hysteria will continue in Ukraine.
      The answer is as long as there is a country like the USA.

      But seriously, the flight time of missiles to Russian strategic sites is increasing. Again, it is possible to deploy air defense, early warning stations, not to mention the naval bases.

    The topic of pumping money out of satellites is as old as the world. It has become especially relevant in the last few years. So that everything is natural. The fate of some is to pay and at the same time have the opportunity to push to Russia. The privilege of others is to collect money and build a cool kid out of yourself.

    Well, that makes sense. The Balts remembered their "identity" with the Caucasians when they wanted "chewing gum" and "lace panties". The "carrot" was thrown - give up everything "Russian", "mix Russia" with dirt and then you will get from the "civilized" world:
    1) for the "elite" and civil servants, constant funding from "Eurobonds" on the one hand, and on the other, "external management" when you do not have to make decisions yourself and be responsible for them, Brussels will do everything for you,
    2) for "hard workers" - Schengen visas and the right to work in any country of the Schengen agreement-type go abroad there "milk rivers and jelly banks" for hard workers.
    All the Balts gleefully "squealed, this prospect suited everyone. Amicably goodbye to the" Soviet past ", everyone rushed after the promised" nishtyaks "in the EU. At first it was, the officials got the money in" euro money "just sitting on the priest, and the hard workers rushed for it the same "Eurobablom" in the EU-type "for fat bread." The EU, having waited until all these add up to the needle of "Eurovlementation" and began to gradually "tighten the screws" - putting forward the conditions that the state apparatus is too large and it must be reduced by an order of magnitude and then it began! In order not to lose their "workplace", that is, "troughs", state officials and politicians of these unfinished had to compete in who would also better lick the ass of "European commissioners", who would show themselves better in the "field" politicians and will become the best “pro-NATO member.” As a result of this “selection,” the “elite” remained at the helm of these countries, with an extremely pro-NATO attitude and anti-Russian attitude. it was not at all good oho, but then ... then all countries began to slowly protect their labor market from all kinds of "migrants" within the EU - more and more "papers", "confirmations", "licenses" were required, and then even worse, they introduced some where are the limits on jobs for "citizens" of the EU countries of the second and third grades, and the brave Balts had to look for work already in small firms and companies, or even completely freelancers, where it is not at all sweet. And now, due to the influx of cheap black labor from the countries of the East, it became very bad to take out the pots from under the decrepit Germans, deliver logistics, and there were too many people who wanted to harvest seasonal vegetables and fruits, and salaries crept down with alarming speed. And it turned out that at the top of the Balts sits the "top" completely feeding from Brussels, and below ..., and below "sucking" all the rest. That is life. Alas.

    It’s not clear why NATO is half-fools.

    If the war - then it will still be decided by large uncles, not the sprat army. Staronatovtsy need to put the decommissioned equipment somewhere, so they stick it to all the Baltic states; she won’t fight anyway.
    If peace, then truly sovereign countries will come to an agreement; the Baltic states will only assent.
    If trading, then the owners will trade goods; after the collapse of the USSR, leaflets have nothing, even trousers are borrowed.

    I will not retell, who saw the film, he remembers: "... cock-glass, glass-cock ..."
    Also with the spratostan - all the countries ruined them, industry and agricultural enslaved, people traveled around the world somewhere, cities literally obsolete the Russians, and these mentally defective residents of the Baltic states only lick their eggs with selflessness and more thoroughly. Paradox and surrealism!
    It is amazing that they make money with a person - he’s ready to cut his own eggs.
    Who, after all this, will consider the gadgets for people? It’s disgusting for me to even touch the Baltic states, not to mention the fact that they’re going to their jolt country!

    The author is mistaken about the BMP Voxer, the first BMPs arrived in the German army in 2011 In Lithuania, these BMPs with a 30 mm cannon and additionally armed with Javelin missiles will soon be purchased, only volunteers and mostly students or with higher education are now going to serve in the Lithuanian army as, for example, the son of Mr. Usackas, the EU ambassador to Russia. He interrupted the studios at a prestigious British University for now. And about the Soviet period in Lithuania, the Author is also inaccurate. In 1940, Lithuania, in terms of economic development, was at the level of Finland, and in 1990, the Scandinavian standard of living in Lithuania "did not even smell." If there had not been an annexation by the USSR, Lithuania would have been a normal European country.

    The author of the article is absolutely right, from beginning to end this "help" is permeated with the desire to disrupt the attendants, you must agree that the Americans are perfectly sharpened for this. First, it is suggested to join a club where all gentlemen and democracy are. Then it turns out that face control cannot be passed in such a suit. You need to dress up a little, a suit, a tie, boots and everything else - in this store, well, maybe in this one. I spent money, now you can enter, participate in democracy - when the big guys need your opinion, they will tell you it, at the same time they will point out where to read this opinion aloud. Oops, and it's too late to retreat, deep in contracts, loans ... A real example of the BaltNet airspace monitoring program, beautiful at first, then buy radars for a lot of money. And then it begins - they urinate on the flower beds, and they can't even grab the tail - this is the contract.
