Russia's new Arctic force to focus on border protection

MOSCOW, March 30 (RIA Novosti) - Russia will prioritize the strengthening of its border guards while creating a special Arctic force in line with a new strategy to protect its regional interests, a senior parliamentary member said Monday.

The Russian Security Council posted on its website last Friday a document entitled "The fundamentals of Russian state policy in the Arctic up to 2020 and beyond."

The document outlines the country's strategy in the region, including the deployment of military, border and coastal guard units "to guarantee Russia's military security in diverse military and political circumstances."

According to the document, Russia will create by 2020 a group of forces to protect its political and economic interests in the Arctic.

Meanwhile in the U.S. representatives from both parties, and the Obama administration are trying to pass a new forced labor bill, aka slavery bill for all Americans, the Russian government is concentrating on reinforcing the Arctic to claim it's resources with a new Arctic Force.

The Russian government seems hell-bent on keeping most, if not all of the Arctic resources for themselves, hence they set up this new Arctic Force as a message to all other countries that they see the Arctic, or the mayority of it, as part of their territory.

Whether we want to admit it or not, the world still needs oil, and it will take decades to be able to produce a reliable alternative source of power that will meet the infraestructure demands of nations.

What we have to wonder is, what will be the response of all those other countries which are also close to the arctic, and have stated they want a protion of the Arctic and it's resources.

Remember Kosovo? Was it Kosovo? When Russian forces were allied with US forces for a brief moment in history? I remember they took over the airport. And like a big dog with a bone, we just sat aside and watched them and had to move on. It is not a fight we want nor a fight we can win. They have a bigger country and greater resources. They can also persevere greater than we can. I say, let them have the Arctic, it's not like anyone can do anything about it.
