Dienas grauds

vara bungas:  Paldies LIIA vadībai par drosmi iekļaut nepopulāru un sensitīvu tēmu Rīgas konferences materiālos. Tomasa Jermalavičusa  rakstā sīki un smalki izstāstīts par LT B/OMD atjaunošanas vēsturi un tās niansēm:

Tomas Jermalavičius “REINSTATING CONSCRIPTION IN LITHUANIA: BRINGING THE SOCIETY BACK INTO DEFENCE?” ,  LIIA izdevums “Security in the Baltic Sea Region: Realities and Prospects: The Rīga Conference Papers 2017” 33. lpp

“[..] another important lesson of Lithuania’s transition back to
conscription – leadership truly matters. The need for political leadership
in triggering change, building consensus and removing obstacles, as well
as military leadership in preparing the defence organization, explaining
military service to the public and handling the inevitable incidents
is obvious.[..]”

VB: jākonstatē, ka ar līderību ir problēmas , jo neviens LV valdošo koalīciju veidojošais politiskais spēks   B/OMD atklāti  neatbalsta. NA atbalsta atsevišķu deputātu līmenī. Par opozīciju vispār nav ko runāt. Reti sastopama pozīcijas un opozīcijas  vienprātība, nevienā citā jautājumā tāda nav manīta.

“[..] Should Latvia deem it necessary to reinstate mandatory military draft at some  point, Lithuania’s experience supplies many valuable lessons and insights. [..]”

VB: Ačiu!

VB:  Iesaku turpat par EE:

  • Henrik Praks ESTONIA AND THE MILITARY ASPECTS OF THE SECURITY OF THE BALTIC SEA REGION 23.lpp

Kā arī iedvesmojošu tekstu par Trampu un Baltijas aizsardzību

  • Glen Howard, BALTIC SECURITY IN THE AGE OF TRUMP  104.lpp

[..] Therefore, time and space remain critical in the defence of the Baltics, while Latvia’s ability to deter Russian forces long enough
until the “cavalry arrives” remains critically important. [..] homeland defence and the historical legacy of what the Latvians achieved in defending the Courland pocket from 1944 to 1945 remain critically important as it signifies that the Latvian nation will defend every inch of their homeland until western assistance arrives. And if Latvia is overrun, it will resort to the guerrilla warfare  of its forefathers [..]

VB: Nu ko, gerillas, esam gatavi soļot senču pēdās ?

PS Glens Hovards ir tas pats amerikānis, kurš vēl 2016.gadā aicināja LV atjaunot OMD.
