NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg Not the Best the West Has to Offer, Should Talk Less
TWISTED SECRETARY GENERALS OF NATO
Actually, if we continue speaking about the NATO, its secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg, drew everyone's attention again on the anniversary days of the alliance. He's actually a Norwegian. I don't know if it's just a coincidence but his predecessor was also a citizen of Nordic countries, a Dane, Rasmussen. Rasmussen became notorious when he came to the meeting with Putin, hiding audio-recording equipment in the folds of his clothes, and later he felt comfortable to talk about it himself. Many people thought back then that Rasmussen was just a double imbecile: he was silly enough both to wear a wire, like a spy, and busted himself later. As we say, enough to make a hen laugh.
The next secretary general, the Norwegian, is an equally fascinating character. On the one hand, he's just a technical figure, just a liaison between the USA and other members of NATO. It's via his office that an American representative in the alliance gives orders to the others. This is how it works. And then he transmits the signal without complaint. On the other hand, Stoltenberg, having plucked his courage, got to love making conceptual statements, often of an absurd nature. The latest was issued on Tuesday, in the U.S. Congress on the occasion of NATO's anniversary.
Jens Stoltenberg, Secretary General of NATO: «Freedom has enemies and they need to be deterred. If deterrence doesn't work, then we need to fight. It was impossible to stop Hitler with peaceful protests. Stalin could not be deterred with words. ISIS couldn't be defeated with a dialogue».
Now, let's try to untangle this gibberish coming from the NATO Secretary General. For some reason, Stoltenberg brought everyone into one line: Hitler, Stalin, and ISIS. If we give it a thought, however, they didn't actually need to stop Stalin during the war with Hitler. Nobody but Stalin was the key commander in chief on the scale of WWII. At Least because it was the Eastern Front where the USSR ground the most important part of the Hitler forces. After the war, as Stoltenberg hints, Stalin couldn’t be deterred with words. That is why, they say, NATO was created in 1949. But, come on, in 1949, the USSR was licking its wounds after the biggest losses among the allies. At the same time, the former allies, the USA, Great Britain, and France, behind the USSR's back, conspired to create a military bloc against us. Isn't it what happened?
Even now, speaking about the ISIS terrorists, the black flag of the barbarian caliphate would have been waving above all of Syria but for Russia. Why didn't Stoltenberg, for example, send his Norwegian compatriots to go fight ISIS before Russia came to Syria?
Speaking about Norwegians, Stoltenberg of all people should remember that it was Stalin who made the decision to drive Hitler's occupation out of Norway. It was Stalin who deployed our troops there from Murmansk. In the Petsamo–Kirkenes Offensive, thousands of Soviet soldiers died. They were air-dropped into freezing cold sea water to assault Germany's emplaced firing positions in the fjords. While Norwegian fishers heroically helped them, sailing their little wooden boats under fascist bullets, to meet the Russians, the Russian landing troops. Then, our soldiers let out Norwegian women and children who had been hiding in the mines to see the light of day. That's how the entire northern third of Norway was liberated. The King of Norway, Haakon VII, while still in emigration, expressed his gratitude to the Red Army for this. And Stalin, on his own accord, without any persuasion, decided to withdraw the troops from Norway. Just like that.
TO THE BRAVE SOVIET SOLDIERS
In Kirkenes, there's still a monument to our soldiers, where every year, they lay flowers on the day of the liberation.
Still, the Norwegian Jens Stoltenberg allows himself to talk rubbish from the U.S. Congress tribune. Let him go to his Finnmarken province and try to say the same there. They'd shame him there.
