Media: The Pentagon meets the "daily requests" of European countries, increasing the military presence there

54
The commander of US forces in Europe, Philip Breedlove, is seeking further expansion of the United States military presence in the region, the Stars and Stripes military newspaper writes. Article leads RIA News.




“Over the past year, Breedlove has achieved an increase in ground, air and sea forces, including through the expansion of the rotation of troops sent from the United States. In addition, Breedlove lobbied in the Pentagon for measures to combat the lack of intelligence resources, ”the newspaper writes.

According to the commander, "the issue of locating surveillance and reconnaissance systems is currently under consideration," the publication said and added that the general himself "is an active supporter of this step."

The newspaper quotes a Pentagon official who claims that "European leaders are asking for an increase in the US military presence every day."

"Since the Cold War, the number of American soldiers in Europe has decreased from 300 to 70 thousands, moreover, according to Bridlouv, the number of military experts and analysts specializing in Russia has decreased," the newspaper notes.

However, according to Stars and Stripes, the Pentagon is unlikely to agree "to an increase in the permanent contingent in Europe, rather, the system of troop rotation will be expanded."

          From the text of the article
          the words of one of the Pentagon officials, who claims that "European leaders are asking for an increase in the US military presence every day."

          They are asking provocatively those same officials bent under the United States of European countries who themselves ahead of the military conflict in their countries, and indeed in Europe, will not be. Each of these officials hopes to sneak out of the country before the war.
          Take, for example, Poland 1939 of the year. She armed herself with the help of her allies in France, England, and the United States for "I don't want anymore!" And when Germany attacked Poland - in the very first hours from Poland the entire Polish government “washed off” and all the top military officials draped out of the country on their own military aircraft.

    The newspaper quotes a Pentagon official who claims that "European leaders are asking for an increase in the US military presence every day."

    I imagine charter flights from Europe to the USA, rented by officials from the governments of various EU and NATO countries, who tearfully and humiliatingly ask Americans to increase the contingent.
    And the Americans, the fighters for peace and democracy, almost pacifists, severely point the Europeans at the door.
    And they say that there is no reason to worry.

    About how!

      The USSR had it all. Army, two fleets (Navy, Navy), nuclear weapons. But they passed him. Today we have many friends of democracy in power. Will they be cleared at X or will they make decisions? A dress rehearsal has already taken place on the outskirts. Did the leadership strongly organize resistance? In the West, of course, there are also our agents of influence. But it seems they have no strong influence on politics yet. When attacking Russia, they will probably strengthen the sanctions and begin the financial bombardment of senior personnel. Do they have the strength to withstand massive gagging?

    Army, in order to start a serious war, you must: 1) Mobilize. 2) Participate in a limited war to get used to losses and blood.
    3) Get the appropriate ideological base. Well, time is needed. A couple of years of progressively victorious "war". The mattress has none of this. And until it is foreseen.

Since they are reaching for the lands of their ancestors, is it not time for them all to go back, who is in Oyropa, who is in Africa, everything is better than resettling Arabs and Africans.
    Well, the freed space will be shared by locals - Mexicans and Indians, at least some compensation for centuries-old tyranny. And it will be lawful and fair, because Americans are for law and justice, or am I wrong?

    3. The Bulgarians ensured energy independence by abandoning the South Stream.

    If we interpret Federal Law No. 99 of June 7, 2007, then, at the request of our leadership, NATO can calmly send troops into Russian territory.
    According to the analysis of the agreement conducted by journalists and independent experts, under this law, NATO troops have the right to freely deploy in Russia, provide support to the Government of the Russian Federation, suppress popular unrest and carry out other activities.
