Aizsardzībai karavīru nevar būt “par daudz”


vara bungas: Sen nekas nebija dzirdams no kaimiņiem Gotlandē, tomēr spriežot pēc DW žurnālista  reportāžas tur viss notiek, lai gan arī par izjukušo biznesu ar Gazprom  joprojām bēdājas.  Tomēr salas garnizons nu jau izmērams kā bataljons (vēl nesen bija rota).

PS Sižetā redzams nosacīti jauna triecienšautene AK5C mazliet par to, gan jau arī mums tā kādreiz tiks 🙂

[..] Particularly concerning is Moscow’s substantial inventory of non-strategic nuclear weapons in the European theater and its troubling doctrine that calls on the potential use of these weapons to escalate its way out of a failing conflict. [..]

[..] A recent visit to NATO’s Canadian-led battle group northeast of Riga, however, highlighted that steps taken at Wales and Warsaw are inadequate. NATO forces currently have no orders to fight unless NATO leaders take subsequent decisions, leaving troops vulnerable. The combined brigade has inadequate air defense, artillery and armor. Other Latvian units have even more limited capabilities.[..]

vara bungas: Ceru, ka tik skarbs mūsu viedās aizsardzības novērtējums pārtaps par zelta pendeļiem NATO samitā Briselē, kas paātrinās NBS pārtapšanu par pilnvērtīgu armiju, kā tas jau notika pēc Velsas un Varšavas.

[..] It appears unlikely that additional NATO brigades will be sent to the Baltic states [..] front-line NATO forces require adequate armor, artillery, air defense and rules of engagement. A robust security assistance package for the Baltic states could provide this. Civilian resilience can also be enhanced, improving the capacity of besieged populations to mount an unconventional defense complementing NATO’s conventional response. That will make it clear to Russia that front-line forces will resist and that an occupation will be costly. [..]

VB: Paldies, es tikai aizvakar palūdzu … 🙂 Protams es saprotu, ka šis ir tikai viens raksts no tūkstošiem, tomēr gadiem lasot DefenseNews pamanīju, ka tie uztver un retranslē US augstākajās militārajās aprindās valdošos noskaņojumus un tendences.  Līdz ar to varam secināt, ka TUR saprot, ko mums vajag, bet vai MĒS paši to saprotam? Tomēr, kā teica viens  zinošs cilvēks: “Kurš nesaprata, tas sapratīs”(c)

 

Where are we? (2)


Ted Campbell's Point of View

OP NANOOKNearly a year ago I commented on a new Russian Arctic military base and asked “Where are we?” I was referring, mainly to the aborted Nansivik military base which has been downgraded from the full scale military base that Prime Minister Stephen Harper initially envisioned to a mere fuelling facility. I think we can and should do more and better.

There is a recent article in the McGill International Review which is headlined “The Northwest Passage and Canada’s Claim to the North” in which the authors/editors begin by equating the Northwest Passage to the Canadian Pacific Railway, saying “The Canadian Pacific Railroad was an enormous investment. It cost a good portion of the young country’s budget, was plagued by the infamous Pacific Scandal that cost John A. Macdonald his first government, and, by some counts, it took as many as two lives per mile…

[..] NATO leadership is considering the creation of two new commands. The first command would focus on logistics and how to quickly move troops and materiel around Europe in case of a conflict. The second would be charged with protecting the sea lanes in the Arctic and the Atlantic, a major concern given Russia’s emphasis on rebuilding its submarine fleet. [..]

[..] The oceanic-focused command will likely find support in two key NATO allies. Officials from Norway and the U.K. have been particularly alarmed by Russia’s activities in the upper Atlantic, with Norwegian officials privately pushing for the creation of a NATO command to handle the issue.[..]

vara bungas: Satiekas 3 no 9 US kodolavionēsēju kaujas grupām (Nr.5, Nr.11, Nr.12). 60-80 kaujas lidmašīnas uz katra avionesēja. Katru pavada vismaz viena zemūdene un 6-10 virsūdens karakuģi, kas nodrošina pretraķešu apsardzību un PGA. Vēl katrā  grupā (ap 7000 jūrnieku)  ir apgādes kuģis un tankeris. Izskatās, ka būs liels Mārtiņdienas tusinš 7.flotes atbildības zonā.

All of Germany’s submarines are now out of action


Startēģiskie baltie lāči (papildināts 20.10.)


vara bungas: VB pamatoti pārmet apsēstību ar jūras šaurumiem un  stratēģiskām salām, kā arī biežu bungošanu par Arktikas militarizāciju. Tā tas ir un tā tas paliks, jo notikumi par un ap reģionālās nozīmes atslēgas punktiem nedaudz izgaismo kaimiņvalstu valdību patiesos un tādēļ slepenos nodomus.  Novērotājam atliek tikai pareizi identificēt “key terrain” un gaidīt.

Aurora 17 – To aid a brother


Proud to mention that Latvian HG platoon takes part in A-17

Corporal Frisk

Upon thy glimmering thresholds, when the steam
Floats up from those dim fields about the homes
Of happy men that have the power to die

Tithonus cries out to Aurora, the goddess of dawn

Alfred, Lord Tennyson – “Tithonus”

Perhaps the final sign to show that Sweden has now moved out of the notorious ‘strategic blackout’ is the major exercise Aurora 17 currently underway in the southern parts of the country. In absolute numbers this is the largest Swedish exercise in over twenty years, while in relative numbers this is the largest share of the country’s defence forces ever to simultaneously take part in a single exercise.
