Last December, the Pentagon and the Romanian Ministry of Defense announced the technical functionality of the US missile defense segment, which is located at the base in Romania’s Deveselu.
When the construction of the necessary infrastructure was only planned (and it was still under Bush Jr.), Washington loudly announced that this segment along with the Polish would protect the borders of Eastern Europe from Iranian and even North Korean missiles. The fact that they are Iranian and North Korean missiles capable of delivering a hypothetical nuclear charge to Bucharest and Warsaw was not distributed in the Pentagon, presenting the information in its usual form: “We know for sure, but we cannot say for it is secret” . The Czechs, in whose territory Washington was going to deploy one of the European missile defense segments, anticipating something wrong and doubting the ability of Iranian missiles to reach the Velkopopovetsky goat factories, prudently left the game. But worried about their vulnerability to Tehran and Pyongyang, the Romanians struck in (with the help of the States) ... They instead of the Czechs in the end became the next one-armed gangster in the US military gaming industry. Together with the Poles ...
The American radar AN / SPY-1, included in the Aegis Ashor system, appeared in the mentioned Deveselu. The same system includes a vertical launch of the Standard SM-3 Block IB. According to published data, such missiles on the Romanian base US missile defense 24.
American friends of all Romanians, without exception, after the start of operation of the base in Deveselu, once again stated that the Russian nuclear potential of the Pentagon, you understand, did not even think to infringe. Like, and like the Romanian facilities, the Russian nuclear potential will be infringed if the planned trajectories of flights of Russian missiles pass much further north - over the Baltic, Scandinavia, the seas of the Arctic Ocean. Moreover, not everyone says that the Pentagon once again tries to compare the sour with the fluffy, resorting to the old practice of double meanings and standards. For some reason, in the case of Iran, it is said that the US missile defense system protects Europe, and in the case of Russia they talk about the trajectories in the direction of the United States only. But, excuse me ... And besides the territory of the United States itself, in relation to Russia, doesn’t an objective security threat arise from the territory of the same Europe? This is the threat that the American partners are going to hone to jewelry performance, swearing that the missile defense system in Deveselu is in no way directed against Russia.
Moreover, Washington, exploiting false promises literally at every turn, has so merged with this lie that now it does not even try to explain to the same Romanians, why the “anti-Iranian” European missile defense gave up to them, if breakthroughs were achieved with Washington’s Iran cessation of nuclear research weapons. Although the Romanians do not ask ... But who are these Romanians at all, to ask Mr. something? .. It is said that they built the infrastructure for an anti-missile defense system. And the Romanian "commander" of this object is such a commander, that, based on the Pentagon directive, he is the last on a military facility for Deveselu, who can at least inspect the internal component of the base.
In general, Bucharest is happy, because a bone was thrown from the American treasury ... More precisely, a couple of hundred million dollars as a measure of "economic support" for loyalty to the course of partnership within NATO.
The effect of the comprehensive Romanian joy was somewhat spoiled by Russian President Vladimir Putin. While on a visit to Greece, he said that, they say, if the Romanian “partners” were somewhat more forward-looking, they would prefer two hundred million dollars not to be a new goal for Russia. He says, “We, of course, understand that the missile defense facility in Devesela is not directed at us, you know, but we still want to ask you, partners, and who then? .. The partners began the usual lowing, that, they say, this is a top secret - maybe against the “Armenian dirty bomb”, which was announced in Istanbul by the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev ... Maybe even against the atomic submarine fleet Mongolia ... In short, bustling partners ...
And Putin did not remain silent, actually making it clear that Russian military surveyors and cartographers are already remotely evaluating the folds of the Romanian landscape and elevation changes in the Deveselu area, so that other military experts would then lay the optimal route of neutralization ammunition to the new target. Moreover, this is not directed at all against Romania ... Purely against Aegis Ashor - preventively ... So that one precise hit after passing an ammunition route will be enough to completely neutralize the American “shield”.
And for some reason the Romanians were tense. Apparently, the imagination has already painted color pictures of how the sheep knocked off the flocks (herds) of the shepherd Mihai knocking horns on the new gate of the antimissile base, frightened by the noise of the duty operator, who is already looking for a red button that sleeps. They also draw pictures of how the commander of the calculation of the operational-tactical complex "Iskander-M" somewhere in the Crimea, in response, gives an order to neutralize all this "flock" together with the operator ...
They also strained because Russia knew very well about Deveselu. If only because the base there was originally built by Soviet specialists in the fifties of the last century. Even the coordinates on the Soviet tablets remained ... 44 ° 4'27 "N, 24 ° 25'3" E. And these coordinates can be useful not only for car navigators ...
If such pictures and news of the Romanian public are impressive, then the question for the Romanians is: on what scale to measure the level of your masochism? Or is the desire to be rewarded with a slap on the shoulder from the “friends” from the United States much higher than the desire to quietly exist and lead a civilized partnership?
