Harsh Cold, Not Russia US Marines' Enemy in Norway

"After this incident, the Pentagon, which does not stint its praises of the ‘best' army in the world, must be burning with shame. Their equipment could not stand temperatures below minus 45 degrees, and the marines failed to keep themselves warm with parachute cloth. These so-called ‘elite troops' got so frozen inadequate uniforms that they refused to carry out combat training tasks, and to somehow keep themselves warm made a bonfire in an open area, which is a gross violation of the military regulations. These are also the same US soldiers who are going to defend US interests in the Arctic. How on earth are they going to fight if needed? Minus 45 for the Arctic is far from the limit there, minus 60 degrees is not uncommon," military observer Viktor Baranets told Sputnik Radio.
