          The Pentagon will continue to implement the exercise program in Eastern Europe, even if the Europeans themselves are against it.
          Moreover, the Pentagon will start a war with Russia, even if the Europeans are against it. The Pentagon already has such powers from the European countries of NATO. The Pentagon is not required to ask permission from these governments.

      This is far from clowning. The Americans are constantly pursuing their strategic line to destabilize the situation everywhere, but not at home. Therefore, exercises outside their territories will only grow. It is important to understand that they have built a very reasonable system of financing such events, which do not negatively affect the continental economic space, but, on the contrary, develops it with new industries. orders and production growth. In addition, "exercises" in foreign territories are a whole range of reconnaissance activities, support of personnel in combat readiness, adaptation to various conditions of combat operations, and much more. This is extremely important because potentially the third world war, according to the complex of signs preceding the "hot state", is already underway. Therefore, underestimation of what the Americans are doing will sooner or later result in quite obvious consequences. They are smart, consistent, insidious and know what they want and you need to learn a lot from them, and somewhere even just copy.

          Not only the Balts. And they do not decide anything. Their tragedy is not that Russia is near and because it gave these countries freedom of choice, but that they are close to Russia and therefore they were chosen as a victim by the "hunter". And then, the degradation of institutions of power in young countries occurs under the pressure of puppeteers who choose them to "their" troupes. The leaders of these small systems are chosen by the people, and it should be that they should be highly specialized social scientists and economists, and all the rest, but to a lesser extent politicians. Because they do not influence this policy under the influence of strong countries with high intellectual potential and the government itself and the entire infrastructure that supports it.

    All of Europe is bred like children. They have not yet realized that the Yankees are "exhausted" and are no longer able to provide a REAL military presence in Europe. They "designate" it. According to the BATALION in the country, and then only one of all - from Matrasia. True, it will stand in the "Suwalkovsky Corridor" - a place through which the entire Baltic region, if something happens, will be cut off from the rest of Europe in a couple of hours. And the battalion will heroically reel itself on the tracks of Russian tanks.
    Strategy!

      Didn't the representatives of Latvia take pictures in Paris, tightly holding hands with other "fighters against terrorism"? Didn't you paint with crayons on the square in Brussels after the famous terrorist attack? Why don’t you contribute? laughing

    Wow! However, the Americans invented terrible new tactics. While the landing in the sky will hang, the enemy below will die of laughter, which is what is required.
    Well, that ... no, well, cunning ...

      It is high time. And that's the only way. To equip the Cubans with modern weapons in sufficient quantities, their ships, planes - and on all this, at the very borders of the United States, begin to have fun, train and enjoy life. And so every couple of months, so that the US does not have time to get bored.

    You respected are absolutely right, everything is not so simple. To the guise of the exercises, they will drive the special forces S-130 and quietly fly around the entire territory at low altitude, scan it, take the coordinates of the ends of the runways very accurately, let the locals jump once, in general, the cultural program will be complete. The rapturous applause will break when at night they enter an unfamiliar strip without ground equipment, on which planes did not land even in Soviet times, but they can. This is the real situation, and they act.
    Recently, an interview with the commander of the Pskov Airborne Division was shown, he was very paraded, that's the only way it should be. In modern times, combat training should be quite demonstrative and everyone around should understand that the leadership is ready to act tough. Crimea is an excellent example of this, as is the anti-example of 404x: only the commander of the Kerch Marine brigade earned respectful reviews from officers of the General Staff of the Russian Federation. The rest of the commanders simply "merged".
    God forbid from such "partners", we will somehow cope with enemies

      Yes, anyone likes it, but the Russian army has shown a historical example that will come in as a classic, capturing significant territories without firing shots. Most of all, the choice of timeliness. As a real hunter who knows how to wait and attack decisively and without compromise. But this is also an indicator of the other side, that people are not busy with their own business and cannot understand this. And after all, in fairness, the law of power, combined with intelligence, has always been the main argument in natural confrontation and survival. Otherwise there would be no evolution.
      I think that Russia, represented by its intellectual services, during perestroika won because it did not allow the generation gap to occur, and thereby retained succession in the main strategic institutions. All that remained was to give an opportunity to prove oneself. And the more difficult the recovery conditions, the higher the realized potential of people.
