Pentagon Secretary of State James Townsend, who recently visited Stockholm, in an interview with the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, said that Russian exercises create an atmosphere of uncertainty in northern Europe, and promised the country military support, reports RIA News.


Pentagon spokesperson: Russian military exercises in the north create uncertainty


"Russia is an unfavorable, tragic threat with which we will have to live for some time," said Townsend.

According to him, “unlike the times of the Cold War, the focus is now shifted closer to the borders of Sweden and the Baltic states.”

“Putin is afraid of the Balts, but we do not know his final goal. Balts are your neighbors, so there is uncertainty in the region due to unexpected Russian teachings. You are confronted with bombers who were working on attacks against you, airplanes that fly without transponders or that violate airspace. All northern countries are outraged and feel instability ",
said state secretary.

“This continues all the time, and compared to the cold war, the situation is much more unpredictable,” he added.

“NATO must be strong, we must have such strong partners as Sweden and Finland. We need to make sure that Russia understands that this is not the area where they can come, scare and insult. We should act together to create a very strong wall so that Putin will understand this, ”said Townsend.

When asked by the correspondent whether Sweden, and the whole of Europe, will have time to catch up with Russia in terms of rearmament, the state secretary replied: “Sweden is doing it now.” He also called the country "a stone in a strong wall in terms of containment."

          An old joke reminded:
          The husband leaves for a business trip for one day and asks a friend
          track his wife with binoculars.
          Returning, he listens to a friend's report:
          - I settled down, which means in the attic with binoculars. I'm waiting.
          At seven in the evening your wife goes to the hall, opens the door.
          Some guy comes in in a white suit, with flowers and wine.
          They laid the table, dined by candlelight. They danced.
          And then this man picked it up and carried it to the bedroom.
          “What happened in the bedroom?”
          - I didn’t see it - they immediately closed the windows.
          - Again that damn uncertainty!

          Well, why are psychos, on the contrary, psychologists - Russia does not understand what inspires, and the smell remains.
          On the other hand, this is a demonstration of the helplessness of their position, since they use all sorts of tricks from psychology for lack of other arguments.

There are politicians and diplomats, and you are a private pawn, wherever they send you, you go, what they say, you do. No, he came out and makes statements "Russia, uncertainty."

      DEAR MARINE BROTHERS!

      Annually, on March 1, the country celebrates Memorial Day of the 6th company of the Airborne Forces, which fell in an unequal battle with the militants while performing military duty in the Argun gorge of the Chechen Republic in 2000, but did not miss the Khattab militants.

      March 1, 2016 at 10 o'clock in the city of Moscow at the monument to the soldiers - paratroopers of the 6th company of the 104th regiment of the 76th Airborne Division (near the Museum of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation), metro station Dostoevskaya "Union of Russian Paratroopers" holds flowers.

    Pentagon State Secretary James Townsend, who recently visited Stockholm, said in an interview with the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter that Russian exercises create an atmosphere of uncertainty in northern Europe, and promised military support for the country.

    They need this verbal diarrhea in order to justify their war games, to justify the necessity of tapping money into NATO:
    NATO’s military-political bloc will hold a military exercise called Cold Response in Norway, Zvezda TV Channel reports.

    The alliance deployed three B-52 strategic bombers to a country bordering Russia to test nuclear strikes against ground targets.

    Earlier, the US Marine Corps sent battle tanks, artillery and military equipment to Norway. All this was placed in secret caves built during the Cold War.

    The maneuvers involved 15 thousand soldiers from 14 NATO countries: Belgium, Britain, Germany, Denmark, Spain, Canada, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, USA, Finland, France and Sweden.

    I look into these gray-blue eyes, this purposeful face and I understand that the Anglo-Saxon nation will do everything to dominate this planet systematically activating the plan for the genocide of other peoples, reducing the population through war and bringing the planet to the golden billion of the elect. What Hitler did without hiding, declaring to the whole world about the exclusivity of the Aryan race, the Britons and Americans are turning quietly baiting other nations of the state, absorbing their resources and destroying the population.
    Their prodigy is a satellite weapon, orbiting satellites are carriers of nuclear weapons, and therefore such confidence that Russians are a temporary threat.

    DEAR MARINE BROTHERS!

    Annually, on March 1, the country celebrates Memorial Day of the 6th company of the Airborne Forces, which fell in an unequal battle with the militants while performing military duty in the Argun gorge of the Chechen Republic in 2000, but did not miss the Khattab militants.

    March 1, 2016 at 10 o'clock in the city of Moscow at the monument to the soldiers - paratroopers of the 6th company of the 104th regiment of the 76th Airborne Division (near the Museum of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation), metro station Dostoevskaya "Union of Russian Paratroopers" holds flowers.

    What? A "tragic threat"? Well, okay, I agree, cry if you like. But now, "live for a while", and then, are you going to defeat us? "This is not the area where they can come, scare and insult. Is it about the Baltics for us? Whose soldiers are the Balts insulting? They urinate on the lawns? Puk on the windows?"
    Russian exercises in the north create uncertainty
    And yes, NORTH is the area where we can do whatever we want, how much we want and how we want, and we will never ask anything from anyone, try to ban us.
