Military Review

The US Department of Defense official disappointed US senators with the words that the Baltic States could not stand up to “Russian aggression” for 3 days

63
The Deputy Assistant to the Head of the Pentagon, Michael Carpenter, spoke during the regular hearings in the US Senate. Speaking to the senators from the committee on international affairs, the official of the US Department of Defense answered questions about the state of affairs in those US allies in respect of which "the threat emanates." In particular, the speech of Carpenter touched upon the state of security of the Baltic states. This is reported by the portal. www.weeklystandard.com.


The senators asked Carpenter that in terms of security, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia have changed since February of this year, when the center of analysis and geopolitical research RAND presented a report that Russia is able to occupy the Baltic countries in approximately 2-3 days. Apparently, the senators expected Carpenter to declare a significant increase in the “security level” in the Baltic States due to the American contingent arriving there, but the deputy assistant secretary of the defense secretary clearly upset the senators with his reply.

According to Michael Carpenter, since February, “nothing has changed in the defense system of the Baltic countries”, making it clear that against the “Russian aggression”, without thinking of which, neither the US nor the Baltic can live a day, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia 2-3 days mentioned earlier do not survive.

Recall that the authorities of the Baltic republics almost constantly say that NATO, and specifically the United States, must increase its military and military presence in the Baltic States.

      And where is the hurry? Considering that "non-citizens" will also rise there, and a bunch of Russian-speaking people ... it will be possible, having gouged the advanced detachment of especially stubborn ones, continue to go on calmly. Collecting mushrooms and berries along the way.

        The man simply told the truth, but in the USA the truth is simply not needed, they need PR that their army and NATO are all the stronger thanks to the USA, of course! if NATO begins, and then specifically the USA will seize to the fullest, it will not even be Syria, it will be a real war as soon as the Russians can fight, the EU is not ready for such a war, the United States is simply not yet aware that it is also not ready!

        The dialogue is typical for "two or three" days.
        - "Yaaa ... Lauskas Brazekulas, naaa ... born at this manor."
        - What kind of a collective farmer are you when you take a negro in green?
        That’s what we’ll do for three days. In general, our border will delay for 30 seconds, while they laugh. But we have nowhere to go - after all, a pan-European road. The whiskers of their mustache proudly went from there, and then, who survived, the bistro-bistro went there, yeah ...

    And what the American senators wanted, they forgot that Russia is not Iraq, and, on occasion, will erase America to dust, which of course would not be desirable. Ordinary people feel sorry for them, they have nothing to do with it.

      With the rapid response units of the airborne forces, navy, caliber caliber, electronic warfare systems, etc., all this will take no more than a day, or maybe even less.

    Arguing about how many days it actually takes, one can easily forget about the pod that is contained in Carpenter's statement: it turns out that the fact that "the Russian Federation is occupying the Baltic states" is, as it were, a settled issue, and now we only need to talk "in how many days".

    "According to Michael Carpenter, since February," nothing has changed in the defense system of the Baltic states, "making it clear that Lithuania, Latvia and the United States cannot live a day without the thought of which neither the United States nor the Baltic states Estonia will not stand up to the two or three days mentioned earlier. "

    The cleverest man, Michael, gave the truth to the senators. hi

    I understand that the Russian threat to them is already an obvious thing. Now think about why and for what he said this. The answer is obvious, so that the Senate gives the green light to send a full-fledged strike force there supposedly to repel Russian aggression.

    Ours just need to shout out loudly in their language of each Baltic country: "The Russians are coming!" And .. then we will collect them in order to return them to our homes. And if you shout the same thing in the center of Washington! Then the consequences for the United States can be simply disastrous :)

    I think that after some time, which I don’t presume to judge, the Baltic states themselves will be asked to be part of Russia. And I think that not as states, but on the rights of the regions. So there’s no point in Russia occupying, seizing and attacking Russia. This is my opinion, so do not judge strictly. Respectfully.

    The statement has only one goal - to increase the NATO contingent in the Baltic states


    Yes, not to increase, but to get more money. Well, the Baltic states are even stronger tied to themselves so that even the desire to twitch does not arise. But for Russia, there will be more or fewer NATO members - it does not play a special role. And so, and so - suicide bombers.
