Troops Will Stay in Town 85 Miles From Russian Border

Adding to the ever-growing number of US military deployments into Eastern Europe, the Army announced over the weekend that the US will send some 1,000 US troops and vehicles to Orzysy, a town in northeastern Poland, another deployment done as part of the huge “spearhead” force against Russia.
Orzysy is just 85 miles away from the border with the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, and officials are saying that this new collection of ground troops is being put there as part of an effort to “deter Russia,” part of a long-standing NATO narrative of a possible Russian invasion of Europe.
In addition to this large Baltics force, the US also launched two other ground deployments into Eastern Europe in the last week, with troops sent to both Bulgaria and Romania. More deployments are likely to be announced on top of all of this, with Lithuania complaining the thousands of NATO troops sent to the Baltics is no longer enough.
Nations like Poland and Lithuania see the deployment of foreign ground troops as a financial and technological boon, with Western European and US troops expected to provide both an influx of cash into the areas they are deployed and to give the nations access to more advanced military equipment. This has given them a strong incentive to keep playing up the “Russian threat,” and to fly into a rage at the suggestion of normalizing ties with Russia.
You stupid donkeys...and what if your flat terrain countries become front-line battle playgrounds, where the key decisions of war strategy is decided by Washington and Moscow? ....and you are forced to surrender your sovereignty, and nation hood at gunpoint to these greater powers in their shooting match? Which results in capital damage of $200--350 billion (Syria) and the death of 500,000 people (Syria).....will the $200 million or even $1 billion look so enticing then? Can't your little minds see and imagine the bigger picture. I appreciate that it is a long practice of the CIA/State Department since 1945 to buy influence in Europe of political figures through Swiss bank accounts, but is it not possible to love and be patriotic of ones own country first.
