It would be good to do a little research before inventing these scenarios.
I spent 2 1/2 years in Germany with the 3rd Armored Division. The United States has had military forces stationed in Europe since the end of WW II, first as occupation forces, then as security against the Warsaw Pact (Soviet Union) potential to invade and conquer Europe.
Every two years the NATO forces conducted an exercise called REFORGER – Return of Forces to Germany. In that exercise we would deploy to forward bases and pretend to repel the invading Warsaw Pact armies. Meanwhile the U.S. would mobilize troops in the U.S., including some National Guard, and practice getting them to Germany as quickly and efficiently as they could. It was a lot of fun playing a massive war game. but it was widely considered that the WP would roll right over us long before reinforcements could arrive.
So, NATO is strictly defensive forces. The U.S. may or may not have the ability to mobilize troops and get them to Germany in time, but the NATO forces have ZERO capability of collecting, much less transporting, any significant military force to the shores of the United States, and even Canada, a member of NATO, would have little luck invading through our northern border even though they are already at the door.
- For US Armed Forces veterans who served in Iraq from 2003-Present, what do you think were the actual reasons for that military action?
- What do armed officers do in peace time?
- Why is the Navy the least popular of the Armed Forces of almost all the countries in the world?
- Can NUCLEAR submarines be detected by a satellite due to radioactivity?
- Quand les forces armées ont-elles déjà fait de leur mieux pour embarrasser un officier supérieur ou un sous-officier?
NATO forces have no hope of reaching the U.S. If they come by plane we will blow them out of the air. If they come by ships (which they do not have) we will see them long before they pose a threat and either sink them with planes or submarines.
If any come ashore other than in Massachusetts, New York or New Jersey (strict gun control) they will be met on the beaches by a well-armed militia and be lucky to gain a foothold, much less reach the closest McDonald’s.
For 72 years the United States has provided military security for NATO, with some token military forces provided by the NATO countries. With the Warsaw Pact defunct and the chance of an invasion from Russia highly unlikely (unless you are Ukraine) there is precious little reason for us to leave substantial troops there any longer. Time for those nations to pay for their own defense and our troops to be re-deployed where they can be put to better use.
But the chances of NATO ever desiring, much less succeeding in invading the U.S. continent – not a chance.
