NATO leaders agreed on Friday to deploy military forces to the Baltic states and eastern Poland for the first time and increase air and sea patrols to reassure allies who were once part of the Soviet bloc following Russia’s seizure of Crimea from Ukraine.

The 28-nation Western defense alliance decided to move four battalions totalling 3,000 to 4,000 troops into northeastern Europe on a rotating basis to display its readiness to defend eastern members against any Russian aggression.

  1. What could go wrong?! Our military has already said that any troop placements by us would be over run by Russia in what, 72 hours?

    We’re already breaking a decades old treaty with Russia saying we would not move any troops closer to their borders than what we had when the E German wall came down. We
    already put “defensive” missles in place on Russian border to protect ourselves from Iran….who is the provacateur here?!
