Patriot deployment in Turkey arouse RF concern, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said

ISTANBUL: The deployment of NATO’s Patriot systems arouses Russia’s concern and does not facilitate stabilisation of the “shaky situation” in the region, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.

Peskov accompanies Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has begun the visit to Istanbul.

This issue will be in the focus of the talks between Putin and the Turkish leadership.

The deployment of NATO’s Patriot systems arouses Russia’s concern, the Kremlin official said, adding that Russia “will inform its Turkish partners about its concerns”.

Peskov said the talks would be held in two aspects: bilateral relations, which “are notable by their diversity and full of excellent projects and international issues”. Russia and Turkey “have serious disagreements on international issues. And we don’t hide this fact”, the presidential spokesman stressed.

In his words, “several steps do not facilitate the normalisation of the situation in the region.”

Peskov said the Syrian problem would be on the agenda. “Russia’s position is consistent and absolutely transparent: one warring party cannot be upheld. This cannot facilitate the settlement of the conflict,” Peskov said, adding, “Active support for one warring party only incites the conflict.”

The spokesman did not rule out that Putin and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyit Erdogan would discuss the detention of Russia’s jet by Turkey.

The deployment of NATO Patriot complexes in Turkey "is a concern to Russia and does not contribute to the stabilization of the already fragile situation" in the region, the President's Press Secretary, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters in Istanbul on Monday.

He noted that this issue will be addressed in today's talks. Peskov will accompany President Vladimir Putin during his visit to Istanbul. Shortly after his arrival in Turkey, Putin began closed-door talks with Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Erdogan.

When did Hitler rearm Germany ?

February 1933

In February 1933, days after Hitler came to power, Hitler instructed the German general, von Fritsch to end German disarmament and to 'create an army of the greatest possible strength'. Germany began a remarkable increase in its level of weaponry that was to gather momentum during the mid-1930's. By July 1933, tanks were being produced and by 1934 Germany was making aircrafts and warships. The production of military aircraft rose from 36 planes in 1932 to 1,938 planes in 1934 and 5,112 planes in 1936. In 1935, Hitler introduced conscription and began to increase massively the number of soldiers in the German army.

Britain Tells Germany to Rearm - What would Churchill say?

May 8, 2012

Britain’s military establishment has a shockingly shallow grasp of history. British Defense Secretary Philip Hammond said Germany must recognize “that it can’t continue to be the dominant economy in Europe without also significantly increasing its military capability,” after talks with his German counterpart Thomas de Maiziere in Germany, May 2.

Hammond chastised Germany for its “historic reluctance to deploy and operate overseas” and called on it to deliver “more usable firepower” to nato.

This view goes beyond the defense minister. On May 4, the House of Lords European Union Committee published a report on European defense, where it drew the same conclusions. For the EU to have “an effective security and defense policy,” Germany must play a bigger role, it said.

It sees America pulling its military out of Europe, making cuts and focusing on the Pacific. “Europe really does have to start to get its act together, and the only player that’s really missing in that is Germany, Europe’s powerhouse,” the chairmen of the committee, Lord Teverson, told bbc Radio 4’s Today program.

Even America takes the same view. Former U.S. representative to nato Nicolas Burns testified before the Lords committee. “The U.S. was, however, concerned about the diminishing budgets of most of its European allies, especially Germany, Italy and Spain,” the committee’s report states. “Ambassador Burns was particularly critical of Germany’s low level of spending on defense. Germany should make a greater commitment to collective defense and the modernization of its own military, and be more willing to deploy in difficult areas.”

U.S. President Barack Obama made similar statements last year, when he told German Chancellor Angela Merkel: “The world today does not fear a strong Germany. It is, rather, disappointed when Germany is too reserved.”

The committee also encouraged Britain to support more cooperation on defense within the EU. Their report states that Britain should drop its longstanding opposition to an EU operational headquarters.

Lord Teverson dismissed any concerns about Germany’s history by saying the war was over 60 years ago, and that even today, Eastern Europe is more worried about Russia.

How shallow. In a deeper view of history, 60 years is not that long.

The famous document agreed by Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin at the Yalta Conference read: “It is our inflexible purpose to destroy German militarism and Nazism and to ensure that Germany will never again be able to disturb the peace of the world” (emphasis added).

The document goes on to use phrases like “break up for all time.” These men were thinking in longer terms than just 60 years.

Winston Churchill repeatedly warned about the rise of Germany, prior to World War ii. These warnings, based on Germany’s history, were ignored...

Top NATO Military Commander Holds Closed-Door Meeting In Turkey

Adm. George Stavridis, the commander of US European Command (USEUCOM) and NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), has met with Chief of General Staff Gen. Necdet Ozel in Ankara in a little-publicized visit.

The meeting took place on Tuesday at General Staff headquarters but was only announced to the public in a statement released by the General Staff on Wednesday. The talks were closed to the press and the statement did not elaborate on what Stavridis and Ozel discussed.

Stavridis visit Turkey for regional discussions

ANKARA: Navy Adm. James G. Stavridis, who holds the two highest strategic positions in NATO, discussed the “events transpiring in the Levant” during a two-day visit to Turkey this week, according to his official website.

The visit, which took place on Oct. 1 and 2, became public through an announcement by the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) on its website on Oct. 2. Stavridis spent the first day of his visit in İzmir. On Oct. 2, he held separate meetings with Turkish Chief of General Staff Gen. Necdet Özel and Defense Minister İsmet Yılmaz.

The Allied Air Command in İzmir came under scrutiny during the discussions. The command in İzmir was most recently on the public agenda during the debates over NATO’s early warning system in Kürecik, Malatya, which is a part of NATO’s missile defense shield. The Kürecik radar system was installed to observe Iranian skies for any missile threat.

Stavridis heads both the U.S. European Command (USEUCOM) and is the Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR). The SACEUR is responsible to NATO’s highest military authority, the Military Committee, for the conduct of all NATO military operations.

NATO chief’s term extended one year

The NATO military alliance is extending the term in office of its current chief, allowing him to remain in office until the end of July 2014, the Associated Press reported.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, a former Danish prime minister, took office in 2009. Since then, he has overseen operations in Afghanistan and the air campaign over Libya. He will leave office shortly before the conclusion of NATO’s combat operations in Afghanistan, at the end of 2014.

“I am honored by the trust and support the allied governments have shown me,” Fogh Rasmussen said in a brief appearance yesterday.

Ambassadors from the 28 NATO countries made the decision to extend his term yesterday.

NATO chiefs are traditionally appointed for a four-year term with the possibility of a year’s extension.

There have been cases in which a NATO chief’s term has been extended for a few months beyond that, but in recent times secretaries-general have not been given full second terms.

Puppet Europe, with Greece, Spain, Portugal already ruined by US banksters, has to have a Mercan in charge of the NATO destruction team in Europe.
