Washington pulls 700 US Marines out of Norway


Recommended Posts

The US Marines has been permanently stationed in Norway on a rotational basis since 2017. That arrangement now comes to an end, the Norwegian Armed Forces informs.

From late fall this year, the Americans will pull out and visit Norway only in connection with exercises.

Dette er mer dramatisk enn myndighetene vil innrømme. "Boots on the ground" i denne skalaen er ikke primært for trening -  slik det ofte hevdes,  med avskrekking.  I tilegg forsvinner M1A1 stridsvognene (trekkes ut denne uken)og antagelig forhåndslagrene på sikt. Det vil også ha noe å si for Sverige og Finland.

Detta är inte vara bra för Skandinavien i helhet. Det planerade Östersunds regementet var väl tänkt för att hålla en öppen korridor till Östersjön från Norge?
