Military Review

Speaker of the Latvian Sejm in the United States said that the society of Latvia is in favor of increasing military spending

47
The authorities of the Baltic countries go to any tricks in order to increase the expenditure part of the budget on the maintenance of their armies - up to 2%. Two percent is the so-called "NATO rate". In NATO, any country of the military bloc that spends less than 2% on the maintenance of the army, strongly recommends saving on other items of state budget expenditures and directing funds to the defense industry.


The authorities of Latvia, whose military budget does not reach NATO standards, announce that the citizens of the country literally demand from the leadership that they reduce social expenditures and take the path of increasing the military budget. This statement was made by the chairman of the Latvian Seimas Inara Murniece, meeting with representatives of the US Congress.

Speaker of the Latvian Sejm in the United States said that the society of Latvia is in favor of increasing military spending


Ms. Murniece quotes portal Delphi:
For Latvia and the entire Baltic region, it is important that the upcoming Warsaw Summit decide on a long-term enhanced presence of NATO forces in the region. Latvia is aware of the challenges to security and is ready to increase the defense budget to 2018% of GDP by 2, and this step is supported by the society.


On what basis Mrs. Murniece concluded that the Latvian society supports the increase in military spending, - the Speaker of the Seimas did not explain.

Today, Inara Murniece from the United States is going to meet with Canadian parliamentarians, where, apparently, he will also tell that the Latvians are one and all in favor of an increase in spending on feeding anti-Russian cockroaches in their heads ...

        What is characteristic of our liberals at every talk show is yelling out loud about the wild bias of military spending on defense in relation to social programs. In this case, they will probably say that it is necessary because it is for protection against aggressive Russia.

          That's just the point that is not in the know! Society is aware that medicine is on the verge of collapse, the social network is already dead, after a couple of years there will be nothing to pay for pensions. But this pack of political prostitutes doesn’t give a damn about the life of the people, if only the owner would be satisfied. But the owner, in general, doesn’t care how many there are and who lives in the occupied territory, if they hadn’t rebelled, he will pass laws restricting freedom of speech and freedom of thought.

          Well, they say to him! They say that according to the results of social polls!
          They announce that the citizens of the country literally demand from the leadership that it reduces social spending and follows the path of increasing the military budget. This statement was made by the Chairman of the Latvian Sejm Inara Murniece, meeting with representatives of the US Congress.

          Well, let this first Inara MU be the first and give half his salary to the fund to increase the military budget! Announce and show!

      Some of them even support it, and it is not the first year that they have been declaring an increase in expenses, but because of the outflow of economically active residents and a liberal economic policy, the destruction of industry has not been raised so far. And it is unlikely to increase, well, except that they will preserve at the same level, and two percent will come from a fall in GDP. Although, personally, I want to believe in a miracle!

    "NATO strongly recommends saving on other items of state budget expenditures and directing funds specifically to the defense industry."

    Not in NATO, but in the USA. yes

    "The citizens of the country themselves literally demand from the leadership to reduce social spending and go along the path of increasing the military budget."

    Yeah, pensioners, clutching crumpled euros with sweaty palms, are standing at the doors of the Moscow Region and are asking to take denyuzhki to feed the American rescuers, as much as such a tear kicks out the news. crying

    The Baltic Extinctions have always been distinguished by their unpretentious anti-Russian propaganda and various kinds of political statements.
    Then they cry that revenues from Russian transit through Latvian ports have fallen .... but it turns out that they probably didn’t fall much, since there is an opportunity to increase military spending.

    Today, Inara Murniece from the United States is going to meet with Canadian parliamentarians, where, apparently, he will also tell that the Latvians are one and all in favor of an increase in spending on feeding anti-Russian cockroaches in their heads ...

      It seems that yesterday there was an article where representatives of Latvia spoke out that transit revenues plummeted. So, not everything is smooth in Russophobia countries.

    Well, yes, well, yes ... but ordinary people, for example, on the Latvian news site Delphi, write everything differently, something like this:
    “I am a citizen of Latvia and I am against buying rusty armored cars and unsuitable assault rifles for my taxes.
    I want my taxes to go towards additional funding for health care and education. Latvia does not need an army at all, it needs an uncorrupted police and border guards. "

    The only thing that saddens in this story is why only up to 2%? Let yourself go broke to the fullest, should we be sad? In general, it resembles an experiment with a mouse - if you feed it even 100 times a day, what will become a cat? More likely to burst ...

    Yes, let them spend money wherever they want, apparently the experience of independence is not giving them rest, they are sawing loot there, and the worse it is, they also want to pinch off from the public edge. And secondly, well, what can these mighty tribals influence if they fly 200-300 caliber pieces to their joint base with striped ones? They immediately declare a day off and begin to find out among themselves - who is to blame and what to do. After all, besides the nationalists, there are quite enough normal sane people.
