Breedlove called the main priority of his command in Europe, the containment of Russia

73
The European command of the US Armed Forces in Europe (EUCOM) has determined for itself the main priority in Europe "deterring Russian aggression." Philip Breedlove, the commander in chief of NATO forces in Europe, is the author of the updated strategy presented on Tuesday. RIA News.




The Russian Federation is presented in the strategy as the “main threat”. The reason is "disrespect for the sovereignty of their neighbors in Europe" and "building up forces in the Arctic." In addition, Americans do not like the "actions of Moscow outside the sphere of responsibility of EUCOM" (including in Syria).

The document notes:
"Russia is a serious challenge to our allies and partners in various regions; this is a global problem that requires a global response."


This definition is fundamentally different from what was contained in the previous strategy from 2012. There, Russia was called "a potential partner with whom you can build key relationships."

The new document of the Russian Federation is presented as a "threat from the east and north." From the south of Europe threatened grouping of the IG.

The strategy also notes that 2015 g was for EUCOM "one of the busiest since the end of the Cold War." The command believes that "the reduction in the number of US troops in the region over the past 25 years has put stability in Europe at risk."

              The Americans, of course, are still warriors ... They can’t land on the beach, or their tanks in Iraq stall, that no analyst will predict with them in the Arctic.


              They have problems with geography, they seem to study history from Hollywood films, "supermen" *****

              And the words
              disrespect for sovereignty
              - This is the credo of Washington’s foreign policy.

                This commander-in-chief of the NATO forces in Europe, Philip Breedlove, is so maliciously joyful ... oh, sorry, “face”!
                On his physiognomy it says: “Bines - and nothing but bines!” And in his eyes the BACKS are glowing - in the form of personally to him the% of sales of weapons supplied by the US military-industrial complex to European countries!
                Honestly! It would even be very strange if, with "THIS", he spoke somehow differently - differently!
                Now the most important thing for him is to have time to cash in before the war unleashed by the USA in Europe; and after the war - for him in Europe even grass does not grow!

                  Here is how it was. While he was in Afghanistan, his wife died of cancer. Yes, and he himself wilted. He was sick, and not only the blues.
                  Then they treated him, and, suddenly, they appointed him to Europe. And this is a photograph of him walking from that time on the Internet.

        Podin Bredovy, forgot how you kept good neighborly relations in Yugoslavia,
        Iraq, Libya, Syria, and now they have taken up Ukraine. But in general I want to remind you the history of Paris in 1814, Berlin in 1945. so I do not advise waking a sleeping bear, the story tends to repeat itself.

        and this ardent Russophobe loves to frighten everyone with the "Russian" threat.

        This is hereditary. I remember on May 22, 1949, US Secretary of Defense James Vincent Forrestal, who was placed a week ago at the National Naval Medical Center, shouting "Russians are coming, Russians are coming. They are everywhere. I saw Russian soldiers", jumped out of the window on the 16th floor. This flight so impressed the congress that the aircraft carrier of the new class USS Forrestal was named after him. It is true that later another nice guy, John Sydney McCain, distinguished himself when on July 29, 1967, he marked this trough so that he was sent for repair. And what to do - Russophobia is contagious and leads to difficult results ...

    questions to Breedlove - if Russia is condemned for the mythical disrespect for the sovereignty of its neighbors, then what about the United States, which demonstrates a real disrespect for the sovereignty of all countries that are objectionable to it across the globe? and what about the USA, which is building up forces outside its territory, if Russia is condemned for building up forces on its territory in the Arctic? ...

    You shouldn't have attacked Breedlove. If you look at everything that happens from his bell tower, then you can say "Life is good" (with Breedlove, of course).
    A viable scheme has been devised for itself: the main priority in Europe is “containment of Russian aggression”.
    Considerable money has been allocated for this mulch. Digestibility 100%. Success in the fight against Russian expansion is simply phenomenal. Evidence - please: Russia has not made a single step forward in Europe. And all this thanks to the titanic efforts of NATO and its Breedlove sensitive leadership. That’s just to add some money.

    Still, they are funny people. Even nice for them.
    They have a priority: to restrain the Russian bear.
    Fine. Well done!
    Just a question, but with what to hold back we gathered. In the vaunted Bundeswehr today there are (just don’t laugh hard) as many as SIX personnel divisions. You represent SIX !!! Of these, 2 air defense, 1 mixed air division, 1 tank and 1 motorized infantry (the last I honestly do not remember which one).
    The French seem to have a little more than 9, but 5 of them are the Legion, where up to now 60% of the personnel are Russians, Ukrainians and Serbs (I would have looked how dare this philosopher - Philip Bridlav, send these divisions against us). In particular, the Corsican parachute assault brigade is 95% manned by the Slavs !!!
    Of the rest of the Euros, only Poles are worthy of a separate mention. These, on the basis of a progressive manic psychosis based on orthodox Russophobia, really seriously trained their army, and especially their special units "Thunder", but they are just a drop in the ocean, and the armament of the rest of the Polish army, to put it mildly, of the previous generation (if not worse).
    So what or who was going to restrain Russia, this not very respected gentleman?
    If we only have 10 quick response brigades on the western border (20 combat personnel each)?
    Than he was going to fight. Hope for amers? So they will not be enough for the whole of Europe and one division even according to the deployment plans. Even taking into account the "strengthening of the Eastern allies" throughout Europe, pi..dos have about 500 units of armored vehicles, of which there are less than a hundred tanks, only a few MLRSs, and there is no distant artillery at all.
    So that tailwind him in a hunchbacked back! Let him get ready to hold back! What can you do!

    PS: The Swedish army was previously considered the most efficient army in Europe. The Swedes developed and adopted the SPGs and Tanks specially adapted to fight our T-72s. Developed a whole strategy of a victorious defensive war. And from the outside, everything looked just awesome.
    Only the Soviet General Staff (which I hope no one turns their tongues into prone to projection) apparently did not appreciate their steep preparation and, according to the plans for the coming war, took them to completely seize the territory of Scandinavia (including Finland and Norway) for THREE DAYS! And for this he allocated as many as TWO motorized infantry divisions and one brigade of marines. So here it is.

    It’s just that he’s still working, but he’ll retire, he says, Russia’s done, Putin’s super. They have such a tendency there smile

    In Russian, this is called duplicity. And how to deal with such figures and countries?

    The Russian Federation is presented in the strategy as the “main threat.” The reason is “disrespect for the sovereignty of its neighbors in Europe”
    Gentlemen, how are things going with respect for sovereignty? Yugoslavia, Libya, etc.

    Immediately after Kosovo’s illegal separation from Yugoslavia, in violation of all international rights, Putin immediately said that this precedent would respond to the West. A little later they got Crimea, and on the basis of a referendum, which was not even in Kosovo. So, the West fought for what, ran into something. It's time to stop playing the rule of law with America and the West, where they understand it in their own way. In a game without rules, you need to enter your own rules. Let saliva sprinkle from your powerless malice. The spectacle, though not aesthetic, but still enjoyable.

    The most real! They are going to restrain Russia in Europe, while in Europe itself ISIS militants will soon force all Europeans to live according to Sharia law, and they will make European women their concubines. Only endless stupid Russophobia brought them to such idiocy.

    Memoirs will write in retirement: "How I kept Russia" yes
    And there will be nothing special for our generals to write about: some Briidlaw kept them.

      It’s not so sad. One push to Pristina is worth something, the bourgeois still does not let them sleep well. I think that Russian generals never napmsht as "beat" the 'supreme' and put him ..., before a fact.

    Yes, it's not new to hear something like that, these "partners" shit and will shit, this is the Yankees' credo, when they themselves cannot do anything, then do not let another do it, because their insides are nasty, cheap and disgusting, and their self-esteem is overestimated to the limit .. ...
