NATO May Fight Russia in the Next 20 Years, Top Official Announces

Previously: NATO Starts Biggest Drills Since Cold War

Is NATO even going to exist in 20 years?

It seems unlikely.

This is an organization that was created to fight Russia, and there is no reason to fight Russia. No one can explain why you would fight Russia, other than that they don’t support gay.

New York Post:

An all-out war with Russia could develop within the next 20 years, a top NATO official has warned as the bloc prepared for its biggest military exercises in decades.

We have to realize it’s not a given that we are in peace,” Dutch Adm. Rob Bauer, chairman of NATO’s military committee, told reporters after a meeting of the alliance’s defense chiefs in Brussels.

And that’s why we [NATO forces] are preparing for a conflict with Russia,” he said.

His warning came ahead of next week’s start of military drills — involving around 90,000 troops and lasting months — aimed at proving the alliance can defend its territory up to its border with Russia.

Bauer also said that a large number of civilians would also need to be mobilized in case of war, and argued that governments in the alliance need to start planning for such a massive mobilization.

“It starts there — the realization that not everything is plannable and not everything is going to be hunky dory in the next 20 years,” he said.

“We need to be readier across the whole spectrum,” Bauer said in his remarks Thursday.

You have to have a system in place to find more people if it comes to war, whether it does or not. Then you talk mobilization, reservists or conscription.

“You need to be able to fall back on an industrial base that is able to produce weapons and ammunition fast enough to be able to continue a conflict if you are in it.”

In December, Putin denied President Biden’s claims that Russia could go to war with NATO, describing them as “complete nonsense.”

Medvedev seems extreme sometimes.

But I think he’s right.

These people are coming unglued.
