Montenegro Rebuffs Trump Over 'Threat to US' Claim

After Helsinki, Trump boasts of reinforcing NATO

One is that Trump is Russia's man in the White House.

Even before joining NATO, Montenegro sent police forces to Afghanistan.

A journalist asked the President of the United States: "What my son needs to go to Montenegro and to protect it from attacks?", to which he replied that has the same issue.

"I laughed when I heard that and figured it could be a good advertisement", retiree Slavka Kovacevic, 58, said of Trump's depiction while taking a break from her morning shopping.

Montenegro, a tiny Balkan country that borders the Adriatic Sea, might seem like an odd place for World War III, but President Trump entertained the possibility in an interview earlier this week. "You know, Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong people".

Amazon's hopes its Prime Day doesn't go to the dogs
Three other SMBs - Vintage Book Co., Tegu and Bakblade - all reported 10 times the amount of sales compared to a normal day. Prime Day is one of Amazon's most important days of the year, when it hosts Black Friday-like deals in the middle of July.

Even more - 92 percent - said they suspected that Trump's motive for making the comments was primarily to promote the sale of USA liquefied gas in Europe and Germany.

President Trump has been working hard to destabilize this alliance, treating our longtime friends like enemies and providing comfort to our Russian antagonists.

"Alliance trust is gained in drops and lost in buckets", tweeted Mark Hertling, a former U.S. Army commander in Europe. I've asked the same question. If Russia were to invade the tiny nation, the USA would be required to come to Montenegro's defense, potentially sparking a massive global conflict.

"Trump and Putin Become Partners in Destruction" moaned the heads of the RIIA's Russian Federation and Eurasia Program, and USA and the Americas Program, James Nixey and Leslie Vinjamuri, in their Expert Opinion of July 17. The Post recently reported that USA military commanders are anxious that if they had to quickly move us troops east to head off a military conflict with Moscow, "the most powerful military in the world could get stuck in a traffic jam" as "Humvees. snarl behind plodding semis on narrow roads" and "U.S. tanks. crush rusting bridges too weak to hold their weight". In 2006 the country declared independence after a referendum. And Mr. Trump's comments about Montenegro weren't the first time he's appeared hesitant about embracing Article 5. Russian Federation strongly opposed the move, going so far as to support a 2016 coup attempt against the Montenegrin government.

It's unlikely that Montenegro will cause World War III, though not impossible.

Inflation holds firm as retail offsets energy and fuel hikes
House prices also increased the slowest in five years according to the ONS, with flat prices staying the same for a year. Households were also squeezed by gas and electricity costs, which rose 2.5% and 2.2% respectively, month on month.

The meeting would reinforce and strengthen the defence alliance between Australia and the United States, she said.

If anyone is gleefully watching Mr Trump's Fox interview footage with a bucket of popcorn right now, it's Vladimir Putin.

Although peace in Europe is generally taken for granted in the post-Cold War world, the last century showed us how fragile that peace could be.

If the United States had treated the badly wounded post-Soviet Russia less brutally in the 1990s, nurturing the fragile new Russian democracy instead of taking all the Eastern European countries into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and pushing the alliance's military frontier right up to the former Soviet border, there might never have been support in Russia for an aggrieved nationalist like Putin.

"It's an open invitation to Putin and the United States must act to reassure this ally and our other allies that we really mean it with Article 5", Clark said.
