    Norway Wants To More Than Double The Number Of US Marines There

    Norway has asked the U.S. to more than double the number of Marines in the country amid growing fears of Russia.
    The U.S. currently has around 330 Marines in Norway on a winter warfare training deployment. They arrived in early 2017, marking the first time foreign troops were stationed in Norway since World War II.
    But Olso says that's not enough. Norway and several other NATO member states near Russia recently called for a larger military footprint in their region.
    Norway will ask the U.S. for a total of 700 Marines on a five-year deployment. They'd reportedly be stationed even closer to the Russian border than those 330 are now — only about 250 miles away.

    The summit in Singapore has made US President Donald Trump "a man of peace," according to two Norwegian parliamentary representatives (from the Frp party), and as NRK reports, they have nominated him for the most gifted award of all of them.

    Representatives Christian Tybring-Gjedde (Frp) and Per-Willy Amundsen (Frp) believe it qualifies Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

    They have oil money - let them pay for their own military.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Russia vowed on Thursday to retaliate for a plan by Norway to more than double the number of U.S. Marines stationed there.Oslo announced on Tuesday that it would ask the United States, its NATO ally, to send 700 Marines to train in Norway from 2019, against 330 at present, and said the additional troops would be based closer to the Russian border.
    "This makes Norway less predictable and could cause growing tensions, triggering an arms race and destabilizing the situation in northern Europe," the Russian Embassy said in a statement on its Facebook page.
    "We see it as clearly unfriendly, and it will not remain free of consequence."
    Oslo has grown increasingly concerned about Russia since Moscow annexed of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, while adding that it does not regard its much larger neighbor as a direct threat.
    The U.S. Marines were scheduled to leave at the end of this year after an initial contingent arrived in January 2017 to train for winter conditions. They are the first foreign troops to be stationed in Norway since World War Two.
    The initial decision to welcome the Marines had prompted Moscow to say it would worsen bilateral relations and escalate tensions on NATO's northern flank.
    On Wednesday, Russia's Northern Fleet launched a large naval exercise in the Arctic Barents Sea. Later this year, Norway will host its biggest NATO maneuver in decades.

    Norway needs to put 700 of it's own troops on the border and let their taxpayers pay for it.
