Latvia, Lithuania And Estonia Want To Join US-led Coalition Against ISIS

FILE IMAGE

According to err.ee, the Baltic states are participating in talks to join the fight against ISIS, said commander of the Lithuanian Armed Forces Vytautas Jonas Zukas.

Lithuania is going to send its special operation forces to Iraq in the early 2018, according to Zukas. He added that Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia refused to create a joint special operation forces squadron as had been planned earlier, and now consider other avenues of cooperation. Confusingly enough he followed this up by saying that “one way or the other, we’ll have a joint unit”.

Lithuania’s Defense Minister Raimundas Karoblis said that Lithuania and Latvia will join their forces in a special operations unit, while Estonia will be involved in a different way.

Surely, the Baltic tigers will become the decisive factor in fight against ISIS, which is no way nearly over anyway. If deployed in the early next year they will rain hell and fury on unsuspecting foes and will without a doubt make major contributions, maybe even carry the bulk of the responsibility in finally taking down ISIS, not even slightly late to the party.

    “participating in talks to join the fight against ISIS” :) I bet they do that with very serious faces and their US masters keep telling them how important they are for success of US’s “fight against ISIS”. Those clowns are funny but not smart enough to realise that participation in US illigal occupation of Iraq may bring them not only “glory” and some dollars but also responsibility.

      Good! Any gun sent South to point at ISIS or HTS/Al Qaeda is a gun not pointing at Russia! And any NATO bomb dropped on ISIS or Al Qaeda can NEVER be dropped on Russia! And this war is far from over. These groups still control huge territories and will still fight long after they have lost all territory.

    This is a joke right?

    Is it sarcasm?

    • GroundlessAir

      Of course, by 2018 there will be no ISIS in Iraq.

      This article only mentioned potential deployment in Iraqi, which won’t be necessary obviously, they’d better plan some talks about potentially conducting an investigation whether it is viable to consider sending some unsuspecting conscripts to fight ISIS where they will actually remain into 2018, such as some desert areas in Libya and Egypt, Nagharhar province in Afghanistan, wedged between israel and jordan in south-western Daraa provice and quite possibly the mighty Caliphate of Yarmouk Camp in Damascus city.

    xD

    we should also be thankful for their spirit of sacrifice.

    they run the risk of being invaded and occupied if they divert their forces from home Lmao

    usa has active allies. no single one country asked russia for a taking part in war against isis. no single one. no osetie, no tumor mirons dnyester empire, no armenia, ni ltlle, 1 km2 large country. russia is alone, because is egostic country. chine declined, they send only meduicaments. independently upon russian. iran, hezbollah begged for help. russia is not able to activate cuba, vietnama, mongolia. and the stupid drunkens are laughing on baltic countires. these countris have balls.

    • John Whitehot

      “usa has acive allies”

      Actually they are the passive part of an “alliance” with Israel, if you know what I mean.

      “no single one country asked russia for taking part in war against isis”

      The Syrian legitimate government did – over it’s own soil.
      As for the rest of the comment, I won’t even waste time replying

      • Solomon Krupacek

        i was talking about russia and not israel.

        • John Whitehot

          thought you were talking about the US:

          “usa has active allies”

          • Solomon Krupacek

            as golden standard. but the subject wwas russia. and thanks, you confirmed, i did nat talk about israel. so, you were stupid. again.

          • John Whitehot

            ok, stupid.
            hoo-ha.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        no. i mean, after when russia entered the war, no country pleased russia to allow them to fight shoulder by shoulder with russia. syria, iran is out of my list, because they asked russia for help.

        but russia all time was alone, because no country want be his ally. like now baltic states want be participate as allies of usa.

          Other states aligned with USA in 1990-91 and in the War of Terror because made they were conned by America’s apparent intelligence and military advantages, which led them into anticipating a victory.

          It would seem this perception was mistaken in the case of Iraq and Afghanistan.

          The dynamics are different in the present MENA theater, with Iran, the Gulf states, Israel, Europe, Russia, China, and the USA competing. In some cases the competition concerns military success, but all players are competing for commerce and political influence.

          The US-led Coalition might have more allies, but the list of American allies has also diminished progressively since 1990.

    • Daniel Castro

      I disagree, USA has vassals, just like URSS had vassals, back then it would be enough for Moscow to raise a finger and most of Warsaw pact would follow them…

      I wouldn’t be surprised to see you cursing USA for being weak and selfish 20 years from now when NATO won’t exist anymore.

      You eastern europeans should grow a pair and stop depending upon others for your own security.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        no way! this is your sick idea.

    • FlorianGeyer

      That has to be one of your most idiotic comments Solomon.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        the largest truth. but you can write the long list of those russian allies, which entered the war after sep 2015

        i know, kazachstan rejected and PROTESTED against russian plans.

        your turn, old commie …

        • FlorianGeyer

          You seem to ignore the fact that President Assad ASKED Russia to help Syria in her struggle against the US Coalition and the Legions of Proxy Terrorists who are raping and pillaging Syria.

          Russia has never needed to legitimise her LEGAL presence in Syria by involving her allies.

          The US Coalition on the other hand that has NO UN mandate or invitation from the Syrian Government to be conducting any military operations within or against Syria. The US has striven to justify her illegal presence in Syria by involving her vassal nations in this illegal US enterprise.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            you again try to talk about ozther theme. no chance, old commie, i know all your tricks :DDDD

          • FlorianGeyer

            The manipulation of Truth is a tactic of yours and your masters Solomon.

      • Tudor Miron

        Agree that this time he managed to “punch above his weight” :)

      • Freespirit

        MOST if his comments are idiotic and they should be – He is a TROLL for Zionism

        forwarded to europol

        • Tudor Miron

          Solomonchik what a miserable and pathetic creature you are :) “Europol! Help! Help!” And this is from the same little worm who himself is constantly insulting others and even dares (hiding behind his keyboard) to directly threaten (as if he can scare someone older than 3 yo) others on this board. Solomonchik… you’re are perfect example of “chosen” people who actually believe that they are somehow better than others. I really feel sorry for you – it must be painful to be what you are. Now run for some europol help :)

        • Gary Sellars

          Why? Do think they will want to order some?

      • Gary Sellars

        Brilliant!

    • LuisF

      Solomon, are you a Jew, and also a Zionist lover? Of course, you are. Yes, they send medicines, while your loved ones send destruction everywhere they are. Poor Solomon.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        you little shit, try to argue or dismiss!

    • Jeff Lewin

      “…no single one country asked russia for a taking part in war against isis…. chine declined”

      Not so much so.

      Chinese President XI proposed a Russian-Chinese military alliance last summer (2017). Whatever their reasons may be, at this stage, the Kremlin has not yet accepted the offer.

  • Vitex

    Idiots. First they join the US bloc, then they get invaded by immigrants as a reward.

    • Albert Pike

      Well nothing comes for free…

  • Ger

    They will need to get information on the location of ISIS from the Americans. Who knows where ISIS was relocated from Syria by all those US helicopters. BTW .. there is some easy loot to be made by pretending to ‘fight’ ISIS.

  • Jim Prendergast

    This is absurd.

  • Gary Sellars

    I wholeheartedly support this initiative. It allows the RuAF the opportunity to conduct a few “friendly fire” exercises with the Baltic Fleas and provides Moscow with a unique forum in which to freely exchange ideas and viewpoints and precision-guided ordnance of various kinds….
