    Really?, come on!. i just can not believe the average Macedonian would fall for this. first the U.S sends its Albanian terrorist stooges into Macedonia spilling Macedonian blood for NATO's Geopolitical interest and now for some reason Macedonia should enslave itself to NATO's absolute rule?. at the least Macedonia has a score to settle with the West. they should just look to their South and North as examples what the EU/NATO does to countries that do not what they are told. they either get war (Serbia) or receive economic subjugation trough the ECB/IMF comparable to wartime conditions (Greece).

    that polish defense minister is living in his own fairytale version and certainly on an Washington payrole for spewing such misguided garbage.

    but on itself, this statement is just an desperate attempt meant to attempt to block the Russian pipeline project that is being constructed now trough Turkey and Greece.

    the EU union is collapsing and can not maintain much longer its house build out of cards. it takes one to fall to cause an domino effect and see country's "defecting" towards Russia. Syriza is playing hard-ball with Brussels, Podemos is rising fast in Spain and Italy is pretty fed up too with Brussels. then you got the Slovakian PM that was pretty condemning verbally about EU sanctions....the list goes on.

    i already said before, NATO lost its structure of "unity" some time ago. but the more NATO officials talk about war, the more NATO EU troops shift their opinions. seeing NATO is the only one talking about war while Russia and China are reserved in both strategic movements and political statements.

    all the NATO mouthpieces can talk tough-talk against russia, it does not mean anything when more than half of EU's NATO forces perceive the U.S as its enemy to their own country's interests. and thats millitary-wide. airforce, army and navy. this is also confirmed recently by an poll among NATO country's in case of war with russia.

    Expansion Continues: Now, It is Montenegro's Turn to Join NATO in 2015

    Montenegro may join NATO already before this year is out, Russian media reported Monday, citing a source at the alliance’s headquarters in Brussels.

    The North Atlantic Treaty Organization has been expanding eastward ever since the 1992 Soviet breakup. Almost all former members of the now-defunct Warsaw Treaty Organization, and the three ex-Soviet Baltic republics joined NATO between 1999 and 2009.

    Poland earlier said that during its July 2016 summit in Warsaw NATO would invite Montenegro and Macedonia to join the alliance.

    “Montenegro is an ideal candidate,” the source told the Moscow-based Kommersant newspaper, adding that no other country had any real chances of joining the Western defense alliance any time soon.

    The newspaper also quoted a government source in Podgorica as saying that Montenegro was the only non-NATO country in the Adriatic and that NATO membership was seen as the only way to ensure the country’s security.

    According to the newspaper, the Montenegrins expected an invitation to join in during the NATO summit in Cardiff in September 2014, but eventually decided to bring the matter up at the meeting of NATO foreign ministers in December 2015, without waiting for the next NATO summit in Warsaw in July 2016.

    Poland 'Dreams' of Montenegro Joining NATO at 2016 Warsaw Summit

    Poland plans to encourage other NATO countries to support Montenegro's membership bid, Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna said. According to him, Montenegro’s admission to NATO would help stabilize the situation in the Western Balkan region.

    Montenegro should become part of NATO at the next summit of the alliance, Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna said during his visit to Pristina, the capital of Montenegro.

    Schetyna arrived in Pristina for talks on Montenegro’s admission to NATO.

    "Our dream is that Montenegro would be the 29th full-fledged NATO member at the Warsaw summit in July 2016," he was quoted as saying by Polish Press Agency.

    The chances of Montenegro joining NATO during the Warsaw summit are high, he underscored.

    According to the minister, Montenegro’s admission to NATO would help stabilize the situation in the Western Balkans and be a step towards the country’s future EU membership.

    He added that Poland plans to encourage other NATO members to support Montenegro membership plans.

    Earlier, NATO Chief Jens Stoltenberg said the decision on Montenegro’s membership bid would be made during a foreign ministerial meeting scheduled in December.

    F-22 Raptors Will Be Deploying To Europe To Send A Strong Message To Russia

    Post  nemrod on Tue Aug 25, 2015 11:20 am

    F-22 Raptors Will Be Deploying To Europe To Send A Strong Message To Russia

    After teasing the possibility of Raptors deploying to Europe months ago, Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James has confirmed to reporters that Raptor is indeed going to be sent to Europe as part of an ongoing initiative to reassure NATO allies of America’s commitment to their defense.

    Secretary James made it clear that the move to send the F-22 to Russia’s front doorstep is part of Defense Secretary Ashton Carter’s “strong and balanced” approach to reminding Russia of the consequences of extra-border ambitions:

    “Rotational forces and training exercises help us maintain our strong and balanced approach, and we will certainly be continuing those in the future… For the Air Force, an F-22 deployment is certainly on the strong side of the coin.”

    Exactly what F-22 unit will be sent to Europe and where they would be based remains unclear, although General. Mark Welsh, the U.S. Air Force’s Chief of Staff noted:

    “We’ll get the F-22 into facilities that we would potentially use in a conflict in Europe… This is a natural evolution of our bringing our best air-to-air capability in to train with partners… We have an aircraft with pretty advanced capabilities, and we need, and they would like, for us to be able to interoperate in multiple type scenarios… And being able to train side by side with them and do that kind of training is really, really important for us. And that’s what this is for.”

    F-22 Raptors Will Be Deploying To Europe To Send A Strong Message To Russia

    The Raptor’s inaugural long-term deployment to Europe (it has had a near constant presence in the Middle East) will most likely follow along the lines of what the Florida and Oregon Air National Guard have executed in their F-15C/Ds since Spring. As part of the ongoing Operation Atlantic Resolve, the Eagles hopped East from one key NATO base to another, training with local units along the way, before ending up at a temporary Eastern European air defense post.

    Sending a detachment of Raptors to Europe also points to the possibility that things are not necessarily improving when it comes to Russian-NATO relations. If anything else, they are getting worse as forward deploying the world’s only truly operational 5th generation fighter to Eastern Europe is a card best held until needed.

    Then again, the size of America’s air superiority fighter fleet has shrunk so much over the last 25 years that the Eagle community, made up of about 192 aircraft in total (about 25 percent of which are being used for training and development), may not be able to sustain these types of deployments alone while also meeting their homeland defense, regional deterrent and their many training goals. Additionally, both aircraft, the super complex F-22 and the aging F-15C, require large amounts of maintenance to keep them airworthy at any given time. As such, calling the F-22 to deploy to Europe may be an acknowledgement of an inevitable logistical reality as much as a strategic play.

    I am sure the Russians will welcome the opportunity to get to point all their radars at the F-22 and see if it is really as good as its makers claim it is.

    Nothing like getting to test against the real thing...

    Referendum on NATO Membership in Montenegro ‘Could be Rigged’

    Sputnik spoke to John Laughland, Director of Studies at the Institute of Democracy and Cooperation, about the NATO referendum in Montenegro. He said that the referendum could be rigged just as the one for independence.

    The Parliament of Montenegro has approved a resolution in support of the country’s membership in NATO. Fifty out of 79 MPs voted in favor of joining the Alliance with only 26 politicians opposing the initiative.

    According to the resolution, NATO would become a guarantor of Montenegro’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. It would also reinforce democracy and enhance living standards in the country.

    Earlier in June, NATO’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated that Montenegro would benefit greatly, if it joins the Alliance.

    Given the recent US abuses of Germany viz a viz the German gold reserves that have clearly been misappropriated and stolen by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and the overall uselessness of the NATO alliance, would not now be an ideal time for Germany to leave NATO and seek an alliance with Russia?

    If Germany were to leave NATO it would mean that Poland would be isolated and would likely withdraw from NATO rather and at least become neutral. The Baltic States would also likely quit NATO.


    Is it possible for a Russian-German alliance to be achieved?

    Even if Germany quit NATO Poland certainly would not and the baltic states would not either... it is their parapet to shout at Russia from... if they left NATO they would be mice in the lions cage... again.

    Would Poland really want to become an island of NATO surrounded by a sea of Russia and Germany?


    Russia could leverage a lot of diplomatic and economic pressure and start causing major splinters and fractures in NATO.

    [i]"Command of a US Army Brigade, is going to be located in Ciechanów, along with 200 units of equipment - as it was announced by Tomasz Siemoniak, Minister of Defence, who visited the city. This is one of the five locations for the US equipment storages, defined by an intergovernmental agreement between Poland and the United States of America. The remaining places, to which the US military hardware is going to be deployed, include Łask, Drawsko Pomorskie, Skwierzyna and Choszczno. Declaration regarding the location of the US Base and command of the brigade, was made during the Siemoniak’s visit to Ciechanow. The infrastructure is going to be created within the area which had been previously used by the disbanded 1st Artillery Regiment of the Polish Army. Around 50 buildings and area of 60 acres – these numbers describe the new US Army base in Poland. Ciechanów, besides the Łask Air Base infrastructure, the Land Forces Training Centre in Drawsko Pomorskie and the Military Infrastructure in Skwierzyna and Choszczno, is going to be a place where the US weapons storages are going to be placed, as it was defined by a memorandum between the governments of the Republic of Poland and the United States of America.

    Ciechanów is one of the locations where the heavy equipment of the US Army is going to be deployed. This constitutes a result of a long negotiation and consultation process. We want to provide the United States with the best proposals, and we want to carry out the adaptation works as quickly as possible, so that the base is active even before the NATO summit in Poland. Tomasz Siemoniak, Minister of Defence. Thanks to the memorandum, Poland is going to be one of the nations gaining benefits from the European Reassurance Initiative, announced by President Obama in Warsaw, last year. The US investment related to the military infrastructure in Poland is being realized with the relevant funds, allocated to the above-mentioned programme. Talks with some local companies have already begun. These businesses are going to realize the works, the aim of which is to customize the existing infrastructure, so that it is suitable to be used for the newly defined purposes."


    This is i belive the ex Polish Army facility they will use as a start:

    Sputnik spoke to John Laughland, Director of Studies at the Institute of Democracy and Cooperation, about the NATO referendum in Montenegro. He said that the referendum could be rigged just as the one for independence.

    The Parliament of Montenegro has approved a resolution in support of the country’s membership in NATO. Fifty out of 79 MPs voted in favor of joining the Alliance with only 26 politicians opposing the initiative.

    According to the resolution, NATO would become a guarantor of Montenegro’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. It would also reinforce democracy and enhance living standards in the country.

    Earlier in June, NATO’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated that Montenegro would benefit greatly, if it joins the Alliance.

    They even have certain public figures in Montenegro making commercials in which they call people to vote for NATO joining on referendum, naturally in cooperation with Montenegro gov and NATO.

    There is even official NATO Montenegro profile on youtube where you can enjoy such videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/NATOMONTENEGRO/videos



    Most famous is this one however, in which famous artists of all kinds participate including Mima Karadžić, famous actor actor in this region....money does miracles i suppose. And he was known for ages as person that does not like US/NATO...
