United States Veterans Association Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) appealed to the Senate, calling for blocking the entry of Sweden and Finland into the North Atlantic Alliance, says in a post on the official website of the organization.
The statement notes that the US national debt is $30 trillion. The situation is also aggravated by record inflation and growing restrictions on military capabilities. According to the organization, against this background, the last thing to do is to extend security guarantees through NATO to two more rich European countries.
According to CVA senior adviser Dan Caldwell, the US authorities should pay more attention to their own needs and security. According to him, the transfer of weapons on the territory of Sweden and Finland could provoke an escalation of the situation in relations with Moscow. As a result, a potential conflict between two nuclear powers could pose a threat to all of humanity.
Caldwell believes that the deployment of combat systems will require serious expenses and will hit the US budget, which is already causing concern.
Recall that on July 19, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Senate of the United States Congress approved the initiative to admit Sweden and Finland to NATO. US senators should consider these documents in their entirety. At the same time, the ratification procedure is carried out by the head of state, and the Senate gives its consent to this.
