We also saw significant progress with NATO’s ballistic missile defence system, including two more Aegis ships based in Spain and progress towards the activation of the Aegis Ashore facility in Romania.

Since the agreement to extend NATO’s ballistic missile defence in 2010, significant progress has been made to ensure that the capabilities and systems that comprise NATO’s BMD are properly aligned and that the mechanisms for command and control are fully operational. In 2015, achievements include: – Two US BMD-capable Aegis ships, the USS Carney and the USS Porter, arrived at their home port in Spain – these are in addition to two (USS Donald Cook and USS Ross) that arrived in Rota in 2014. – The construction of  the US Aegis ashore site in Romania was completed. – Technical infrastructure and command and control arrangements have been enhanced. – Several Allies are contributing to the system with their own assets. – A number of Allies took important national decisions on acquiring BMD assets that might be offered to NATO: • Poland announced a plan to acquire Patriot batteries to support its ground-based air and missile defence. • Germany announced its intention to acquire MEADS systems to do the same. • Denmark and the Netherlands continued upgrades to their sea-based sensors for missile defence. • Turkey cancelled the tender for a ground-based air and missile defence system from abroad and decided to develop it indigenously.

  1. Romania trebuie sa tina cont de propia istorie militara….inainte de ww2 Franta era o super putere militara avind cele mai multe si moderne tancuri si practic Romania era aliata cu aceasta superputere la acea vreme…ce trebuie sa invatam din acest exemplu?…ca apararea bazata pe sistem de aliata este limitata si riscanta….dpv geopolitio-militar situatia reala ,realista a Romaniei este practic indentica cu cea a Israielului….pe ce se bazeaza sistemul militar israielian in afara de alaianta?!…pe serviciul militar obligatoriu extins la femei,pe tehnica de lupta de ultima generatie…?!….Apoi Romania are posibilitatea in prezent datorita situatiei ,sa cumpere din Occident licenta de producere,linia de fabricatie ,tehnologia pentru producerea motorului performant pentru Soim 99 si daca este posibil si pentru producerea unor rachete performante aer-aer….caci este importanta linia a doua care consta in fabrici mobile de armament pentru piese de schimb si munitie…Suedia a pierdut razboiul cu Rusia inainte de ww2 pentru ca nu au mai avut obuze pe care le importau din Franta,si-au invata lectia si si-au construit o superindustrie de armament…deasemeni dau un exemplu cind NU se poate aplica articolul 5….?!…razboiul intraNato….de exemplu pentru prima oara in istoria recenta Ungaria practic are superioritate aeriana fata de Romania…nici macar cu F16 nu va face mare brinza,care nu sint pregatite pentru razboi ci pentru politie aeriana,au garantie de uzura limitata….la asta adaugam vizitele dese a lui Orban in Rusia…la asta adaugam un interes al Rusiei de a pedepsi Romania…la asta adaugam interesele economice corporatiste occidentale de a vinde armament ambelor parti…si daca ne uitam mai atent situatia nu este asa roz…Deci daca nu avem autostrazi,nu avem sistem sanitar,sistem de invatamint etc,cel putin sa ‘facem o ruseasca’ ,sa dam totul pe una ,sa ne punem la punct cel putin un sistem militar cu tehnica cit de sus se poate,cu ‘linia a doua’ cu fabrici mobile de armament,cu materii prime si utilaje de rezerva,cu cercetare si inventica romaneasca, astfel incit sa descurajam orice initiativa impotriva Romaniei…parerea mea este ca …este bine ca ne imbarbatam,dar a miza numai pe un sistem de aliante in apararea tarii este un esec din start ca si principiu…este ca si cum te-ai imbata cu apa rece …Din bugetul viitor sau chiar actual ar trebui tras imediat un cel putin 6% din PIB pentru punerea la punct a sistemului de aparare.
