Norway Lets 330 US Marines Into Its’ Country…RUSSIA Threatens ‘Nuclear’ War

Norway has been the latest victim to the big bully next door, Russia, and it’s no small threat this time. A senior Russian politician has warned Norway that it could now be a nuclear target after it allowed for the deployment of 330 US Marines.

Frants Klintsevich, a deputy chairman of Russia’s defense and security committee, said the deployment of US Marines at Værnes was part of a US expansion of forces in the region – a threat to Russia – and claimed that any further moves like that wouldn’t guarantee them a safety seat if nuclear war was on the agenda.

Norway joined NATO in 1949 and they did so by giving the USSR at the time the absolute assurance that they would never allow foreign soldiers into their borders for station. The USSR doesn’t exist, but that’s where Putin is steering back to.

The Local newspaper reported Mr. Klintsevich had some words to impart on the influx of American Marines:

‘This is very dangerous for Norway and Norwegians. How should we react to this? We have never before had Norway on the list of targets for our strategic weapons. But if this develops, Norway’s population will suffer. Because we need to react against definitive military threats. And we have things to react to, I might as well tell it like it is.’

Norway’s defence minister, Ine Eriksen Søreide, has rejected Russia’s criticisms and said the deployment at Værnes, near Trondheim – about 700 miles from the Russian border – which is only a test run which will be reconsidered next year.

She said:

‘There is no objective reason for the Russians to react to this. But the Russians are reacting at the moment in the same way toward almost everything the NATO countries are doing.’

Major General Niel Nelson, commander of US Marine Corps Forces Europe and Africa said the deployments would provide an opportunity for the corps to train directly with Norwegian troops.

‘Having a rotational presence in Norway enhances the collective ability of our two forces to work together.’
