Media: due to dissatisfaction with the policies of NATO countries, Washington will transfer to Europe only one battalion


As the source told the newspaper, “European countries refuse to invest more in defense within NATO, and the US is trying to convince Denmark and Norway to transfer its battalion to Eastern Europe.”

According to the original plan, the Pentagon was supposed to place in Europe about 2-th thousand military personnel, Britain and Germany - according to 1 thousand, that is, about a thousand to Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland.

Meanwhile, NATO Deputy Secretary General Vershbow, on the eve of the Warsaw summit, pointed to the "responsibility of the alliance to protect its citizens."

“Alliance members are already strengthening their collective defense. We increased military activity - more aircraft in the sky, more ships at sea, more exercises on the ground. And we expect our leaders to take further steps at a summit in Warsaw in July, ”he said.

“NATO is doing quite a lot, but I don’t think this is enough, we must expand the power of our programs if we want to have a real strategic security impact. To achieve this, we must use more political capital and resources allocated to these programs, ”said Vershbow.

“One of the topics of the upcoming summit in Warsaw in July will be what we call“ stability planning, ”he noted. “Another topic will be the strengthening of our means of deterrence and defense.”

      The US main goal is to get money out of budgets and force Europe to fork out more.

        And then to deploy 80% of their aircraft in Europe - to fight, so in Europe, not at home. All the wars that took place with the participation of the US Armed Forces were anywhere, but not in the United States.

          And for the United States, we have a special gift with home delivery. It is called Strategic Rocket Forces.

      There is absolutely nothing surprising in this Pentagon decision!
      The US strategy as a “civilization of the SEA” in the struggle between the continents - the continent of North America with other continents, Europe and Eurasia - strictly fits into the long-standing American strategy "Anaconda", developed in the USA by General McClellan during the American Civil War.
      REFERENCE. The Anaconda strategy is an increment of economic well-being (USA) - as the main goal of the war; avoiding a direct collision with your opponent and attracting ALLIES for this and with THEIR help - KILLING the consequences of actions taken for the sake of profit (first of all, for the USA itself).
      This is what the Pentagon is doing in Europe as part of NATO.

    "The Pentagon, as part of its participation in the NATO program, will send only one battalion to Eastern Europe instead of the promised two" ...
    It’s like - here you are NATO scoundrels, pay for your training yourself laughing
    Europeans pretend to believe the Pentagon and will themselves, holding their wallet together, pay for their jumps crying
    Washington - will pretend that it is they themselves and without coercion wassat
    As a result, Washington is "in business", and Europe will amuse vanity negative

    Well, it's just a shame. Do not respect our army at all! It seems that they have already explained and shown everyone how we conduct exercises for 100 thousand people with relocation for DAYS, with heavy weapons to unfamiliar theater. And they are against us - a battalion there, a battalion - here. What do they think their fighting homosexuals are all terminators?

      Our army was just respected now, so only one battalion is sent. According to the simulation results, the mattresses calculated that this is a finished boiler, which will be boiled in case of a mess during the day. Therefore, nobody wants to send valuable resources and strength to the bag. And this battalion to indicate the belonging of the NATO Baltic. That is, to make it obvious that this territory is protected by chop NATO.

      They want to sit out behind a "puddle", and to bump their heads against Europe and Russia, and at the same time to weld. Union of Europe and Russia - death to the Naglo-Saxons, their world domination. The development of the Russian Far East, its militarization, and mattress makers, all their battalions will be redeployed to Canada and Japan. And by deploying troops in Cuba, we will return a third of the colonial troops to their homeland.

    But if something happened (ugh, ugh, ugh) no one will protect these Balts and Poles. And they understand all this perfectly. But politics is politics, these are the rules of this "game".

    Perhaps this is: "This is all the hand of Moscow! They are trying to destroy not only the EU and TTIP, but also NATO!"
    And it’s not that we tried to destroy them, but we certainly won’t prevent it.
    Tear in the enemy camp always looks good!

    Give a battalion! The battalion's defense area is 9 platoon strong points. If you count the capabilities of one BMRS 9K58 Smerch BM, then it will be able to cover all this already 6 times. Let me remind you - 1 car! What are we discussing here? Even in 1941 near Moscow, when everything was not at all healthy, infantry were measured by units no less than a regiment-division. And there are so many discussions about anything!

    Americans are not such as to place 80% of the aircraft somewhere outside the country. They themselves have enough internal problems that the National Guard and the police cannot handle on their own. They will throw a bone to Europe in the form of one battalion and let them rejoice. It is more realistic to further increase the grouping of missile defense systems with the ability to use the Tomahawks to launch.
