The Pentagon: the American team in Europe will allow "to maintain the necessary capabilities"

31
The transfer to Europe of an American brigade of ground forces will help maintain the Allied military capabilities on the continent, reports RIA News statement by the representative of the Committee of the Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces Anthony Hierardi.


The Pentagon: the American team in Europe will allow "to maintain the necessary capabilities"


“The program to support the European allies of the United States under NATO in the framework of the draft budget for 2017 envisages the allocation of funds for sending to Europe on a rotating uninterrupted basis by one of the brigades of the US Army,” the general recalled at a briefing.

“Another brigade will be deployed in the state of preliminary readiness,” he specified.

"The specific location and details will be announced later," Hérardi added.

He also noted that currently "the Pentagon does not have its own army brigade in Europe."

According to the general, the measures taken "will expand the possibilities for maneuvers of the Land Forces and support the necessary capabilities in the region."

          Everything is twisted here for US interests. The United States is not going to leave BV and give anyone its sphere of influence.
          The USA is conducting its DOUBLE BV game with its partners.
          On the one hand, the USA provided ISIS support in order to put pressure on partners in the region. At the same time, ISIS support for the USA is also an American investment in Turkey, on which Turkey found itself not only on the oil “needle”, but also on the bandit ISIS “needle”.
          On the other hand, when ISIS began to get a little out of American control and show independence, for example, captured Mosul and opposed Iraqi Kurdistan, American imperialism became worried and launched its own company. However, the ultimate goal of the USA is NOT the COMPLETE destruction of ISIS - Americans are simply striving to bring ISIS to a level that the United States could control. And at the same time, American imperialism takes the opportunity to restore its influential position in the region, giving its support to Kurds.
          It must be remembered that the Kurdistan Workers' Party is practically the only SECOND Muslim power in the region that enjoys the support of the masses. The USA has full sense to make its stake on the BVK on the PKK - to oblige it with its help and thereby subordinate it to its influence.
          Hence all the snotty appeals of Turkey and ISIS to the United States and to "their" geopolitical Western structures.
          The US State Department will balance between Turkey, ISIS and the Kurds in their interests, depending on changes in the balance of power in the region, which, in particular, depend on the actions of the Russian Air Force to support the Syrian government forces.

              .........

              Due to, in particular, the colonial “losses” of the United States and its partners, which they suffer in the BV as a result of the successful actions of the Russian Air Force in Syria to defeat ISIS militants, the United States is accelerating its presence under the NATO flag in other places, namely EVERYWHERE in countries along the perimeter of the borders of the Russian Federation.
              And at the same time, the United States — and the Anglo-Saxons in general — are always ready to substitute, sacrifice, and “surrender” their partners in ANY (!) Form to their adversary, so long as they themselves remain with the benefit of WHOLE and UNAIDS in a geopolitical armed “game” for their national interests in the world .

              All this means only one thing - the Russian Federation must observe and strengthen its security measures for a guaranteed retaliatory nuclear strike by Russia directly through the United States in the event of a nuclear war uniquely unleashed by Washington.

                Because, in particular, the colonial “losses” of the United States and its partners, which they suffer in BV as a result of the successful actions of the Russian Air Force in Syria to defeat ISIS fighters, US accelerates its presence flying the flag of NATO elsewhere, namely EVERYWHERE in countries along the perimeter of the borders of the Russian Federation.

                that it was NOT accidentally created by someone who misunderstood the FALSE impression that allegedly helping Russia in Syria was a political mistake, the POSITIVE importance of the participation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria on the CONTINUATION of the TEMPES of the constant and unshakable ACCELERATION of the US and Anglo-Saxons ( under the NATO flag) in almost ALL countries along the perimeter of the borders of the Russian Federation, starting from 1991 of the year.

            Well, as before it was spun on the interests of Britain. There were times of Lawrence of Arabia 100 years ago. Since then, almost nothing has changed in the actions of the Anglo-Saxons. Only now the United States is trying to establish its protectorate over the region.

      In the United States, some are beginning to think that the Balts are afraid of Russia too much. Make a fool pray to God - he will break his forehead.
      Most likely, this, of course, is connected with the election campaign, but it’s still interesting:
      “Over the past year, there has been a debate in Washington about whether Moscow is planning to send its tanks to the Baltic countries,” writes Kenneth Raposa, a Forbes USA correspondent. In his article “Clinton rekindles the fear of the Russian parish in the Baltic States, which they actually leave”, Raposa writes that if Russia accumulated armaments and artillery on the borders with the Baltic states, it did so only as a response to NATO's eastward movement and deployment of Alliance missile bases in Poland. At the same time, Russian business is leaving the Baltic countries, the influence of Russian capital in the region is weakening, and the soft power of the Kremlin, according to the author, does not have any significant influence in the region. The level of energy dependence on Moscow continues to decline.

      In other words, Russia leaves the Baltic states, and Washington invented “very rich and very dissatisfied expats who have personal claims to the Kremlin,” the expert writes, “the meme” that Putin is the “new Adolf Hitler” who wants to occupy the Baltic Sea countries.

      “I was in Lithuania in September, for a week. People aged 25 to 70 all said something lousy about the Russian government. They don't like her. They have bad memories of Soviet times. The older generation, like the Americans in the 1980s, believes that Russia could invade their country. But the Russians never entered Alaska. I bet they will never enter Riga, ”the author addresses the Western establishment, exposing the image of the victim created by the Balts.

        In December, the same Forbes published analytical material, “Why America Joins NATO?” Doug Bandou, accusing the Baltic States, no less, of undermining the architecture of global security. “Expansion at the expense of the Baltic states turned out to be a colossal mistake, as a result of which helpless nations became members of NATO, the rest of Europe is not interested in protecting them, countries that have no geopolitical significance for America, but are involved in heated polemics with Russia.

        The security of the United States has been significantly affected by the addition of (to NATO - ed.) Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, ”Bandow concludes with merciless bluntness, questioning the expediency of finding the Baltic states in the Alliance.

        States are able to form their moral and political authority with the help of a number of specific instruments: respect and protection of human rights, democratic practices and traditions, restrained and competent foreign policy. For this, however, one component is needed - the maturity of political elites. But hardly the functionaries of the Baltic capitals, who created the institution of non-citizens and consistently pursued apartheid policies towards the Russian-speaking population, can lay claim to the laurels of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.

        There is another way to construct a semblance of moral authority - to create a halo of sacrifice around yourself, which is exactly what the builders of the new statehood of the Baltic states are doing, demanding compassion and help from the entire civilized world. “We, the“ Baltic sisters ”, in fact, were“ raped ”by the damned evil empire, suffered 70 years under the Soviet yoke, and that’s why we have the right,” they send the message to the Western capitals from Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius. “We have the right to harass and mock our Russians as a“ consequence of the occupation ”. We have the right to a foreign policy threatening regional security, where the ideas of anti-Russian messianism are replaced by bouts of hysteria - post-traumatic stress disorder, you see ?! And you, the Western world, should pity and reassure us. So that..."

    The cunning Anglo-Saxons, pulling their infrastructure away from themselves, dream of spoiling others, to get away from a retaliatory strike on their territory. It is necessary to disappoint them.

    One brigade more, one brigade less - this will not change anything. The West is no longer just not ready for normal relations with Russia, but it doesn’t give a damn. And we, accordingly, assuming a possible development of events, are carrying out our work to prevent possible aggression or other hostile actions of the West.

    One brigade all over Europe? This is strong! And what will the whole team do in Europe? Some kind of clowns. From a military point of view - this is chickens to laugh.
