United States Air Forces in Europe - Air Forces Africa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I really don't know it and google search results are unclear, so I am asking it now: Does any of those countries have military bases in USA?

Here's a question for the Putin apologists: If the Ukraine isn't really a country, why did it maintain a separate presence at the U.N. throughout the Cold War -- when it wasn't even independent?

Even if not 0%-100%, let say 10%-90% is too disproportionate in my opinion. I don't know what is the exact proportion of military presence between countries. If I was a president I would not let foreign warriors to enter my country.

I'm getting too deep into politics, and I hate them, if I suddenly stop to respond, you know why would it be.

Many European air forces conduct their combat aviation training in the US because of difficulities regarding live ammo practice runs in their own countries due to the lack of available open space.

German Air Force training wing at Holloman AFB in New Mexico.

I am certain there are others as well, I believe the Dutch and possibly the Danish.

Maybe Mr. Putin saw it too? It appears he's paused at perhaps the brink. The West isn't sure what to make of it. Could it be he's seen enough of the violence? Says he wants 'open dialogue'. Will be interesting to see how this goes.

Ukraine is a country with it's own history and culture, but now Ukraine is occupied by nazi which are doing everything to destroy Ukraine. Donbass never wanted to separate from Ukraine, but when legally elected president was overthrown by nationalists of RS they declared that they don't want to live with nationalists in one country.

Well apparently its still needed!

NATO - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Of course it's still needed because the conflicts in the world are far from over. That's why as much as NATO, Russian army is needed, Chinese military is needed and so is Iranian Army.

Quote:
No seriously, I know that you probably do not like NATO because Russia is not part of it.
The way Russia has been approached/treated by the West in post -Soviet times, it was obvious that Russia didn't belong in NATO.

Quote:
But since NATO and the European Union have been created, Europe has finally known peace.
Europe/US and Russia finally had peace not because of creation of NATO as you might think, but because of the presence on nuclear weapons on both sides.

Quote:
That is because these countries which for hundreds of years have had one war after another, finally feel secure.
Because at that point in time the US "secured" them.

But many Russians are insisting that it isn't, and never was.

Why the inconsistency?

Because Ukraine is more than a thousand years. As Russia and Belarus. Previously we were a united country, but over time Russia and Ukraine became independent states. Therefore, Ukraine was a member of the UN since inception.

And we not say, that the Ukraine isn't really a country. We say that modern Ukraine was formed with the participation of Russia. Western Ukrainian lands were conquered by the Russian Empire, the eastern lands were transferred from Russia to Ukraine. By the way, Ukrainians and Belarusian took an active part in the life of the Russian Empire.
