Latvia "strengthened" by five American helicopters

Today, the military base in the Latvian city of Liepaja begins the transfer of US military personnel and American military equipment. The Latvian Ministry of Defense declares that such a transfer is part of the partnership program of the North Atlantic Alliance and the Strong Europe initiative.

It turns out that Washington intends to increase the power of Europe with the help of two of its platoons totaling about 60 people. In addition, the "power of Europe" will grow five American helicopter Black Hawk.

Latvia "strengthened" by five American helicopters

It should be noted that the American mission in Liepaja is rotational in nature. The previous US military contingent was 70 in number. It should be added that the Air Force base in Liepaja is not the only place where American troops are located. So, about two hundred soldiers along with a dozen tanks "Abrams" and five armored vehicles "Bradley" is located at the base of Adazi. These are representatives of the 3rd Infantry Division of the American Army.

Due to the fact that from February 2017, an additional NATO contingent of about 1 thousands of troops will be introduced to Latvia, local authorities are thinking about how to “comfortably” place the “defenders”, which are becoming more and more.

    Which, by the way, are allocated from the budget of Latvia. All funding already deployed and newly arrived troops rests with the host country.

      The occupation of the Baltic states is ending, and even at their own expense ... no words.

        Why does it end?

      Correctly, the Americans are doing that this time the helicopters are being flown over, the helicopter will allow it to slip off faster. Their commanders still have brains ...

      Recently, there was news where Obama at the NATO summit indicated that we (they) decided to strengthen NATO's eastern borders, made 2 missile defense position areas, prepared infrastructure, accept a proposal to strengthen the composition of joint battalions, deploy a brigade and blah blah on the Black Sea. And to top it off, he added that all this will be permanent. And after Obama's speech, the secretary added that all expenses are covered by the NATO budget without the participation of the United States, they say, we (Europe) must ensure maximum security of the borders and this is not against Russia, but Russia is aggressive and must be contained. Let's shake it up, ladies and gentlemen, that's how it should be. Naturally, for what they fought for, the whole Baltic handful and psheks with the Romanians were nightingales and sat with pillars of salt throughout the meeting, because they tried to comprehend this feeling that they were all fucked, but courteously, so it cost them a lot of work to understand this incident right away. All this rascal limitrophy is racking its brains, they say, "Well, at one time we said something about why all this was needed" and recalls what "gifts" the USA has built / made for them to indicate the constant financial burden from the local budget.

      Well, not all, but somewhere around 50% of the spending on providing the base will go to Latvia ... This is a general rule for all countries that are "protected" by the United States ...

    Interestingly, the Pribaldons really believe that they will be protected in the event of war ?! As far as I know, in Europe Americans are ready to fight with us until the last European, but no matter how the last American!

      Well, to what place will the "Shprotovskaya" army move in invincibility? Well, not lower than the second (right after Ukropovskaya!).
      But seriously, do these Baltic "brakes" really fail to realize that, in the event of any conflict, their chance to cease to exist in the political (and geographic) sense is to strive for 100%?
