The president USA has telegraphed the nation’s vulnerabilities 2017 12 18

“The Russians are laughing as us,” said one astute French observer as the U.S. amphibious landing in Portugal went badly. Numerous vehicles became mired in the sand during NATO’s Trident-Juncture-2015 maneuvers, described by NATO as its “most ambitious exercise in over a decade.” Intended to send Russian President Vladimir Putin a message, the fiasco went virtually unreported by U.S. media, but was noticed in the European and Russian press.

During the NATO military maneuvers held in October and November that focused on Spain, Portugal and Italy, 30,000 troops were mobilized in countries across Western and Eastern Europe, mostly in “penny packets” that did not leave their territories.

About 1,000 U.S. and other NATO troops went to the Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, that are the part of NATO most in danger of being swallowed by the Russian bear. U.S. press coverage, what little there was, focused mostly on U.S. female paratroopers being air-dropped in Spain. What kind of message are we sending to Moscow? Does the Obama administration understand that Spain, Portugal and Italy would not be in the front line of a military confrontation with Russia? And a mere 1,000 troops sent to defend the Baltic states?

Does the Obama administration know that during one of Russia’s numerous short-warning “snap” training exercises, in July 2013, Moscow projected 160,000 troops across the vastness of Siberia? This is seven times more than the collective armed forces of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia combined. The benefit of Moscow’s “snap” exercises went on display when a Russian expeditionary force suddenly showed up in Syria, taking the West by surprise. U.S. troops numbering 1,000 during the Cold War might have been a deterrent by serving as a “nuclear tripwire.” But President Obama has allowed the U.S. nuclear deterrent to become obsolete. U.S. nuclear forces date back to the era of President Reagan and before. They are not being modernized, or even adequately maintained, to deter new generations of Russian and Chinese advanced nuclear missiles.
