NATO Deploys Troops Within 35 Miles of Russia’s Kaliningrad Enclave

Poland on Thursday welcomed the first U.S. troops in a multi-national force which is being posted across the Baltic region to counter potential threats from Russia.

More than 1,100 soldiers — 900 U.S. troops as well as 150 British and 120 Romanians — are to be deployed in Orzysz, about 57 km (35 miles) south of Russia’s Baltic Sea enclave of Kaliningrad, where Moscow has stationed nuclear-capable missiles and an S-400 air missile defense system.

Three other formations are due to become operational by June across the region.

“Deploying of these troops to Poland is a clear demonstration of NATO’s unity and resolve and sends a clear message to any potential aggressor,” NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General Curtis Scaparrotti, said at a welcoming ceremony for the first arrivals at Orzysz, 220 km (140 miles) northeast of the capital Warsaw.

    Well, it’s obvious they won’t have any trouble with these fools. Meet the “new boss”, same as the “old boss”. They need to just get this over with. The quicker they take out all of these emperors of the universe the better. Unfortunately they are going to get a lot of people killed doing it.

    There aren’t many left who can visualize a world without this. No sane person ever asked for this. No sane person would want it. All the chest thumping and saber rattling keeps people from complaining about the grand theft of their wealth and potential. What an evil disgusting way to run a planet.
