Hodges: NATO will not be able to protect the Baltic countries in the event of a Russian invasion


"Russia could have conquered the Baltics faster than we could have been there to protect them,"
Hodges said, agreeing with Western analysts who claim that “Russian troops would need 36-60 hours to capture the capitals of the Baltic states.”

He also spoke about various shortcomings in the coordination of NATO forces that had been revealed during the Anaconda exercise (held in Poland from June 7 to June 17).

According to the general, “problems arose when transferring heavy equipment from Western to Eastern Europe.”

In addition, "a particular concern was caused by the lack of security of the communication technology of the North Atlantic Alliance," he added.

Recall that Russia will have enough 60 hours to capture the Baltic countries, previously said the deputy head of the Pentagon, Michael Carpenter. This calculation was contained in the analytical report of the research center RAND.

      Well, they also need to save their economy and warm chairs. But the Balts will not understand everything, we do not need them. After all, they will have to rebuild their economy. Russia does not need such costs.

            The Pentagon leaders have a well-developed method of squeezing money out of NATO countries.
            Everything is done according to the principle: in front of the NATO countries, as in front of a donkey, the Pentagon has hung a "carrot" unattainable by a donkey, and now the Pentagon controls the "donkey" NATO countries exactly in the direction where, in fact, only the United States is needed for its own benefit. And the personal interests of the "donkey" himself are not at all interested in his owner-rider.
            And money is "dripping" into the Pentagon's pocket, and the US will continue to "ride" and profit from the "donkey" NATO countries in Europe.

        -opposition to Russian propaganda
        Strengthening its own intelligence

        In short, the United States, once again bending down in a pose of R ... Europe and with a tired pat on the ass they say -Well, we must ...

        P.S. And it's not even about the strength of our army (which has really grown quite recently), it's just that we, like a Bear, are intimidated by bankers / farmers, racketeers from NATO, forcing them to pay more and more for the protection of European "banks / farms" ...

        P.S.S. At the same time, from time to time a "Russian Bear" approaches the fence of the "European Village" and stands on its hind legs and speaks in a human voice, addressing the European and pointing at the racketeers -Do you believe these uta.rks for 67 years and specifically 21 years since I left the village to my taiga? ..

        The Balts have had nothing to do with it for a long time. They are a convenient excuse. NATO members, who will quickly come up with a cunning formula to calculate what gigantic contingent, in their opinion, will still be able to protect the poor Balts, if ALL of our army takes and attacks.
        And this contingent will be deployed at our borders under a "plausible" pretext. And it won't be three cripples like today.

      Everyone doesn’t calm down, striped, no matter how good it is, oh, for good reason. They are strengthening their forces in the Baltic Sea so that they could block the Kaliningrad Region if something happens, at first I did not believe in such an opportunity and entered into a discussion with members of the forum, and now mine the opinion has changed - they are too persistently repeating in every way about the weakness of the military in the Baltic states and gradually pulling up troops.

        Strengthen their forces in the Baltic Sea, so that in the event of something they could block the Kaliningrad Region


        So, the whole concept of NATO forces in this region is based on the suppression of anti-aircraft defense, which is the first echelon of defense of the European part of Russia. There is another option, a workaround, is the deployment of air force bases in Lithuania, but so far it is limited by treaties. All the fuss with the military in the Baltic States was started precisely with the aim of provoking the Russian Federation to thoughtless actions in order to withdraw from these treaties. Then the transfer of Ramstein to Šiauliai would kill on the spot several fat rabbits at once. They would gently pat the half-pop of German civil opinion and completely, well, or almost completely neutralize the KO air defense system.

        Once there was a plan to transform Koenig into Baltic Hong Kong. Alas, as always, these plans ended in "mastering" the budget. One u-rod followed another. And the question is in the method, when Putin sent Abramovich to raise Chukotka, if all the oligarchs were "employed" according to the work book. So what? Chukotka shone with the lights of the Arctic? In other cases, several foundations were created, a couple of private museums, several social programs, all that was done for the sake of a tick, you can't find fault with it. Moreover, this "tick" was later sold with giblets, in the spirit of Russian business. And it was necessary to send them to KO. Rent a part to the Chinese, make Koenig a huge European wholesale market. At the same time, the defense system of the KO has not gone anywhere, but skyscrapers of banks would have appeared, the economy would have boiled. First, speculative-commodity, and then regional-production. The threat of isolation or even capture by a KO would become very ephemeral, what should be captured? Own banks, markets and wholesalers? Economy, best weapon.

        In the event of an attack on Kaliningrad, they will end. You don’t need to capture anyone like last time, you just need to grind the enemy’s infrastructure on earth to zero and break through the land corridor.

    To a psychiatrist, and Hodges and the like for long-term treatment and rehabilitation.
    If the Russian Federation has plans to seize the Baltic Sea and it takes only 60 hours, then this moment would have remained in the past, if you think sensibly. And since this has not happened so far, the Baltic countries are not threatened by the Russian Federation, i.e. stop repeating crazy ideas and go see a psychiatrist, Mr. Hodges.
    Moreover, the best punishment for the Balts from the Russian Federation will be to leave them swimming in their own shit, in which they are mired and somersault on their own initiative. Pleasant feelings gentlemen, this is your choice!

    the states are well aware that RUSSIA is not the Baltic states, Ukraine is not needed. They are sucking loot for money and we normally begin to produce at least a little in connection with the so-called SANCTIONS.

    Can NATO protect the moon in the event of an attack by Russia ?! That's what you need to think sick

    So they still have a lot of problems - zombies, aliens, spies and just fears ....

    if they say so, all the more recently this topic has been especially often discussed, they are preparing adversaries, who should be sacrificed to someone, and naturally they point to the culprit of the attack, technology in action

    And in the Baltic states the lap-dog and Co. do not have time to change diapers. They will not capture ... For 8, 15, 24, 48 hours. Have time to escape at least?

    “Russia could conquer the Baltic states faster than we could manage to be there to protect them” It is also necessary to think up something and say to these idiots, otherwise they will fall into a comatose state - among the insanely exceptional, either rampage or sleep ..... there is no other state.

    They will not be able to protect, but the troops are entering, however, the occupation.

    Capture the Baltics? What would be at the expense of Mother Russia to build factories, factories, ports, and at the expense of the Russian peasant to subsidize this "showcase for Europe"? Fuck you in the anus and shouting radish :)
    Now you yourself are there somehow: you sang a puppy dead, bit a sprat, took a plunger and go forward, master’s toilets to tear.

    It is somewhat similar to the "elusive Joe" who cannot be caught ... because no one really needs him to catch wassat
    Judging by the rate of decline of the indigenous population emigrating to neighboring EU countries for the "better share", the Baltic Extinctions will soon fully justify their name.

    You excuse me, maybe not quite on the topic, but the faces of Hodges, Kirby, Stoltenberg, judging by the facial features, eyes and gaze, suggest that they are fucked up. This is not a banter or a joke, just like an observation.

    Stop it, the Soviet "Occupants" built factories, factories. The Balts have plundered everything during their independence, and now they want to be occupied again?
    What the heck is such a headache?

    These tantrums are no longer interesting either to us or to the citizens of those countries that are trying to intimidate. The goal is clear - the Pentagon needs to occupy the territories of the countries selected as victims, turn the government into weak-willed puppets, acting unconditionally at the behest of the owner, and intimidate the population and completely dominate, forcing them to pay for their "security", buy weapons and give the opportunity to manage their corporations! It is for these purposes that "aggressive" Russia has been chosen. And here the main thing is not to think about why we should attack someone, how they in their current form can be useful to us in their current form. And why is the occupation more profitable than cooperation with neighbors in all areas. At the same time, use NATO in the same way that a hardened recidivist bandit uses his gang. Well, with the peoples of the occupied countries, you can not reckon with, because it's just a submissive source of income and, in which case, cannon fodder, which you can hide behind!

    NATO will not be able to defend the Baltic states in the event of an invasion of the territory of the Kaliningrad enclave, which is the territory of the Russian Federation. One of the possible scenarios for the start of hostilities against Russia, along with Syria and Ukraine, is an attempt to blockade Kaliningrad. Do not forget about the "northern territories". Here (on the site) they somehow forgot about the eastern neighbor.

    We are not going to capture them, but only if NATO itself understands that it can’t provide protection, so what the hell do their clown units deploy on their territory, for self-satisfaction or what insidious onanists ...

    What news! Is it special for high-speed balts? As in the old-old joke (before the Baltic states realized their independence): the teacher is about students: several times he explained to them, he already understood everything, and they look in surprise, what else to try to get it? We have recognized their independence for a long time and no doubt, but on which of them nothing depends, what is there to boast and be proud of? When ... the Baltics

    Russia could conquer the Baltic states faster than we could be there to protect them
    So maybe it's time to abolish NATO as an absolutely useless "instrument of defense"?

      Useful advice. It would be nice to bring to the attention of NATO curators that NATO should be dissolved due to the inability to fulfill its tasks. fellow

    "Russia could have conquered the Baltics faster than we could have been there to protect them,"

    Even if they were already there, nothing would have changed. A few volleys of Iskander on the accumulation of troops and military infrastructure, so that nothing would creep out and fly out, and you can forget about it.
    The question is: who will pay for the "banquet"? Will you pay with sprats?
