Pentagon: by the end of 2017 r, forces equal to divisions will be deployed in Europe

43
By the end of 2017, America will deploy forces and facilities in Europe comparable in size to the division, transmitting TASS The message of the assistant to the head of the Pentagon




According to her, we are talking about the American forces, which will complement the NATO potential.

“It’s difficult to keep track of the details, but I think in general it’s important that by the end of next year the United States will have personnel and equipment on the European continent sufficient for one division, in addition to what NATO does,”
she said.

A representative of the Ministry explained that “this is done in the interests of deterrence”.

At the same time, the “reverse side of the same coin is a dialogue,” she added.

“I think our president and a number of other leaders note the importance of keeping the doors open for dialogue, especially with Russia,” said Slotkin.

“But in order for the dialogue to be fruitful, one should sit at the table with a strong message of deterrence,” the Assistant Secretary of Defense concluded.

    We see "the interests of containing Russia," we read "preservation of influence on the policies of European countries through the occupation of Europe."

      Surely. Too often, vassals have begun to rock, and nationally oriented parties are gaining weight. So Uncle Sam started to fuss. You won’t scare Russia with a division, and why not carry out police functions on the ground?

    Words from an old and good song:

    "Do not frighten us, boast haughtily,
    We should not threaten and play with fire again.
    After all, if the enemy dares to test our strength,
    He won't be able to check anything else. "

But, to the military ?! recourse In my opinion, a woman should be: smart, moderately well-fed, focused on creating a family and maintaining a home "hearth", condescending to male weaknesses - hunting, fishing, cars, drinking companions, late meetings, socks on the system unit, a full ashtray and trash can, plates in the "sink", but, not in the dishwasher and the bristles from the trimmer in the shower, never crawling into the "holy of holies" cabinet with a fighting fishing harness ...

    An equal dialogue will not work --- "about a division" is on an ongoing basis, but in addition they have mobile expeditionary strike groups of the Marine Corps + MPF (forces of mobile logistics transport, which are forward deployment squadrons). In addition, they have mobilization with powerful transport capabilities and will be able to quickly build up their ground grouping in Europe with additional divisions. And besides, by the same time as this notorious American division of the NATO member states will sit in Europe, albeit slowly, but systematically, it is not what it is now. They will become qualitatively better and there will be more of them. "special allies and partners in Europe".
    Therefore, the vector of NATO's interests can be traced very clearly. There is an accumulation of troops on the northern flank, but on the southern flank. "... something went wrong ...", because. Ukraine is in limbo, but if it were not for the Donbass, then the buffer there too would have turned into a front line for their combat deployment. Therefore, they will "cling" to Kaliningrad, Transnistria, the Caucasus. That's what we need a powerful grouping on the western border It’s a pity that military affairs are tightly linked to the economies and domestic politics of countries. In these areas they have a certain talent and ability.

      This is the whole point ... "we will fill the face with anyone" But "they'll skim the cream, again the Jews ...." So, in our case, it's better to observe and not rock the boat ..

    Eeeeeee .... Hitler moved 150 divisions of divisions. How it ended, we remember. But they forgot the campaign!
    Yes, given rocketry ... Divided by .... four ... 37 divisions ... Given stick axes divided by ... That's just how much to multiply one company of airborne forces?

    Well, that begins ... A brief description of the reorganized US heavy division:
    - l / s - up to 19 thousand people. (What 4 battalions are we talking about?).
    - Abrams tanks - 247 pcs. (According to NATO, about 1000 units will be introduced, which is already 5 divisions).
    - MLRS - 18 pcs. (in our 1 division).
    - 155 mm agricultural implements - 64 pcs. (Artpolk in our state).
    - 120 mm agricultural mortars - 42 pcs. (7 batteries).
    - ATGM Javelin - 208 pcs. (Not sickly, enough for a tank regiment).
    - UAV - 20 pcs.
    And this is not counting combat helicopters and support helicopters. And this is only the USA.
    We’ll add some more half-witted sun from the Baltic states, Poland, Germany, France and Canada. Here are some more divisions appear at our borders.
    We have very few peaceful skies, a year or two. Well, if it starts, I’ll go to ask at least as an ordinary. Maybe I'll get some more ...

    Rusted the sword to the scabbard of the NATO hero. Recent exercises have strained the command. Like the groans of the ministers of defense about the low combat efficiency of the troops, the readiness of aircraft and tanks due to savings on repairs.
    The division to the continent is about the same scale as the company to the capital. As for the transfer of the moving parts of Matrasia across the Atlantic, this is one of the most vulnerable moments of all this possible "catavasia".
    How and how to transfer? Where? There are not so many powerful airbases for such a transfer ... Let us recall a similar scale transfer before the invasion of Iraq. How long did it last? Without the slightest opposition from Iraq. In my opinion, six months. But Russia is not Iraq. After all, they will not collect bones.

    To make the dialogue fruitful, you should sit down at the table with a strong message of restraint

    In other language, for the ultimatum to be heard, it must be reinforced by force.
    Only Russia does not recognize ultimatums, but only equal actions and dialogue. fool
    And if you choose a method of interaction with Russia, please, you wouldn’t make a mistake. request laughing

    Such statements are made mainly in order to try to look in the eyes
    their allies that their patron (USA) is still strong and will be able to protect them from some
    there are threats from Russia. The main thing is to knock out more money from NATO partners, or even ours
    already beginning to miss with the approaching global crisis. But the pradox is that the partners
    NATO also has no extra money to support Uncle Sam’s war machine! So here how
