  1. WTF are they scared about? It's not like there country is very important to Russia. Nato just needs a Buffer State to hold them back before they get an attack. It's like the time when Blacks and Latinos where put in the front lines in the Vietnam war.

  2. Norway: only 5+ million people.
    That's like Greater Los Angeles.
    And Norway's buying 52 F-35s @ $100,000,000 each.
    You'd think we'd sell them F-35s @ 1/2 price.
    Certain NATO countries are geopolitically more important. Certain NATO countries could do relatively nothing. Not Norway. We should be grateful to them.

  3. Maybe if the US also stopped patrolling and NATO would be dismantled after USSR's collapse it would help? At least you would have more convincing message, otherwise it sound like – "do as we say, not as we do" kind of thing.

  4. They're trying to have a "British Isles" school appear with Russian lettering on a "Google Map" andor other "Map providers", but, there are and should be many more Maps and Maps created.

  5. This is how sick and demonic some race are. Normal people won't build weaponry to destroy each other

  6. Such reports are exclusively a promotion for the US military-industrial complex. Russia is scary, therefore we need your tax dollars … and by the way, Norway needs to buy more F-16s. Daylight robbery ….

  7. These days who is there to believe. They're all liers the only thing they care is for them selves, not the tax paying slave citizens.

  8. bunch of bs waste of money ,,,if anyone is gonna be the aggressor it will come from the yanks ,neither russia nor europe is interested in conquest wars ,that is a silly thought

  9. Хахахаха, да норвежцам не стоит бояться учебных полётов, у русских хорошее отношение к скандинавам, потому что есть особое отношение к северным народам, и то, что самолёты летают вдоль границы страны над свободными водными территоиями это только подтверждает

  10. for all we know they want you to make a move… not firing or anything like that.. but testing your skillz….. ohh yea…

  11. Russia controls the arctic with its icebreakers some of which are nuclear powered and Navy’s northern fleet. The U.S has no balls or resources in the Arctic. The U.S possess no threat to Russia in Russia’s backyard. 😂

  12. you American news outlets are disgusting no wonder everybody in America has such mental health problems they’re being fed BS propaganda every day Americans really need to wake up and stop being so blind about everything

  13. Their trying to setup artic military camps to melt the ice with thermonuclear explosions resulting in sea levels increasing and the sinking of Florida look it up its the latest cool conspiracy online 😎
