Obama announced 4-fold increase in support for European allies

47
In the next fiscal year, the US administration intends to increase the program of support for European allies 4 times - up to $ 3,6 billion, reports RIA News Barack Obama's statement.




“My administration is announcing a fourfold increase in this program for the 2017 fiscal year. The level of funding in the amount of 3,4 billion dollars will allow the US to strengthen our military presence in Europe and expand our capabilities as part of our commitment to NATO members, ”
said the president.

The main reason for this step is the Russian policy in Ukraine.

“On the eve of the NATO summit in Warsaw, it is obvious that the US and our allies should do more to implement our common defense, to support integrity, freedom and peace in Europe,” Obama said. “A fourfold increase in funds under the European program will help confirm that the United States supports its allies in protecting not only NATO territory, but also mutual principles of international law and order.”

He noted that "NATO is now experiencing a time of challenges." At the same time, according to him, the alliance, being "the cornerstone of transatlantic security, is increasingly becoming the foundation of international security."

“NATO needs to be strengthened to confront a whole range of challenges emanating not only from the east from the borders of the alliance, but also from the south, where civil war and decaying states continue to fuel mass migration and terrorism,” Obama said.

“All 28 members of NATO are part of a coalition to fight the Islamic State, the alliance allies and their partners should continue to work together to support the Afghan security forces,” the US president added.

      They finally turn Europe into a US colony, so that no one would rock the boat and try to free-hand - modern slavery.

        No, stupidly - the ruling elite is being fed

        In general, I liked the pun made in the Mount Show:
        "Russia is the main threat to the main threat to the world."

          Here's how to get money out of taxpayers

          (speaking in Russian - to breed and milk)

          Europeans do not milk, only Americans remain

            He speaks of building up A. Merzky’s presence in Europe.

            $ 3,4 billion funding will allow the United States to strengthen our military presence in Europe and expand our capabilities as part of our commitments to NATO members


            Thus, black strengthens its military component on our continent.
            Maybe they sensed disobedience in Europe ???

                I do not think that this is the path to war.
                This is a whip for Europe.
                It’s more like an economy.
                To calm those who disagree, gendarmes are needed.

                After all, the GDP said that in the event of a mess, one cannot sit behind a puddle.
                I am sure that the black comrades understood the President.

        So whom do mattresses support? Myself in Europe or Europe?
        A level of funding of 3,4 billion dollars will allow the United States to strengthen our military presence in Europe and expand our capabilities within the framework of obligations to NATO members
        Judging by this statement, myself.

      Russia, as such, is haunted by the Americans, regardless of whether the military threat comes from it or not. The very existence of a sovereign Russian state is a challenge to the United States.
      And such foreign policy moves by Obama only increase tensions in Europe, which will not lead to anything good. But Barak Husseinovich does not care - he is carried away by the game "put Russia in its place" and does not think about the consequences.

      Yes, please:The administration of US President Barack Obama added more than $ 8 trillion to the country's public debt, as a result of which it reached $ 19,01 trillion, follows from the latest data from the US Treasury.- so they desperately need war, naturally away from themselves "exclusively loved ones."

        Now, economists (who do not consider themselves ря ря пат ри от,, but recklessly believe in democratic values) will quickly explain that this debt is garbage. And they lend to them because they believe in the United States. And they generally take it at a pace and size precisely because everything is fine . And they can give it right now at any moment, and always in dollars (of which I have no doubt at all, the machine is mine). The conclusion should be continued in the same vein. Take more from everyone in a row. Bring up to 100 trillion. And why not take it if fools give it.
        Just think about it ... Obama doubled his debt during his reign. It seems to me that the Presidents of the United States do not have to be blacks anymore. They need to tell the transgender drug addict to try ...

    Barak Huseynovich confused one word - NATO is becoming not the "main basis" but the "MAIN THREAT" to international security (and hereinafter in the text). And the threats need to be reinforced - so they plan to shove 4 times more junk and junk into the geyrope than it was planned earlier.

      Now, if, by conscience and logic, what for you start such serious projects, sign any garbage if you are already a demobilization. You will not be able to control not correct. It will muddle now in recent days, understand the new matter. One remove the other correct. Dembel, it’s your business now to sit and do a demobilization album, as I pulled the strap in the white house for two (two) years.

    So that the geyropeytsy do not understand what they are occupied for fake pieces of paper. NATO is a web or network of traps placed against Russia by Americans in Europe, and indeed around the world. But the spider is usa. The web accepts the blow, wishing to get rid of the spider, first of all they remove the web. Europe has something to think about before rejoicing in such a generous gift from Uncle Sam.

    There are 2 options: you need more money either to protect your occupying forces from migrants, or to prepare and finance migrants, and to further use this destabilizing factor. You will not envy Europe! But Ukraine probably hopes for crumbs from this pie - plans for the bulk: both the submarine fleet and drones.

    increase the program of support for European allies by 4 times - up to $ 3,6 billion.

    The American has a foreign debt already far exceeded 19 trillion, and they have their pieces of paper left and right. That is what it means to put the whole world on paper, which they themselves print.

    Good news. We have long been demanding the deployment of a NATO tank brigade in Lithuania. There are already good results of cooperation. The voluntary "Union of Riflemen" of Lithuania receives assault rifles from the USA and Sweden. This year, perhaps, a law will be passed that in Lithuania volunteers can keep these weapons at home.

    International security is a myth. It's not even a definite term. This is a subjective concept. It is on these "concepts" that the entire foreign policy of the "developed" countries, headed by the United States, is built. We all felt the essence of such a life in the 90s. And in another way they (the United States, etc.) and do not know how.
