    Do you agree that the U.S. should have sent American troops to Poland.

    Thank you for asking this Q. Seems to be a build up of troops & perhaps if had Clinton won - we may be having another war. OR.  or -  Or because Trump says he's going to lift sanctions for Ukraine invasion - and giving Putin a 'free pass' to do whatever then that is the reason why for unprecedented numbers of troops. This is done to block Trump's decision to become Russia's ally after his inauguration Jan 20.  - Sad.

    “These forces will have a ‘trip wire’ function — no longer will it be possible for Russia to have a quick victory for example in the Baltic states on the cheap,” Baranowski said.

    Seems obvious to me that everybody in the Swamp already thinks козырь will be the downfall of the world's stability and are trying to mitigate chaos before Trump is El Presidente!

    When was the last war that the US won. Maybe you thought we won WWII. But think about it in terms of Eastern Europe. Before the NAZIs attacked Eastern Europe Poland and the rest were Free. Then during WWII they were occupied by the NAZIs.

    What happened after Germany lost the war? The US allowed the Soviet Union to control Eastern Europe and even split Germany. So, tell us how that was a win with most of the European countries becoming part of the USSR. We helped save China from the Japanese, and after the war they became our enemy. They are one of the biggest threats to the US today. We also couldn't even free the US people held hostage in Iran for over 400 days, And today Iran is a major problem for the US and the Middle East.
    We haven't won a "won" a war since 1898. And the reason is that we may win military battles, that is not the same as winning a war. WWI for example was not a win because most of the same enemies started WWII. Winning a war means you don't have to go back again and again.
    Consider the threat from N Korea today wouldn't have happened if we won the Korean war. We totally lost the Vietnam War, imo, because the politicians wouldn't let the military do their job. The list goes on,, The point is that we the US shouldn't keep getting into these wars unless we are prepared to win. And that hasn't been the case, and that is a historical fact.

    I think that this question should be taken by president Donald Trump and not set into motion by a president that has only a few more days in office. Good bad or indifferent it should be president Trumps call,. Don't you?

      Astounding ignorance. You think NATO planned this in only 3 months? Google when these plans were made. It wasn't done in 3 months.  What is loony is Trump's schism of previous  policy as if renovating his own house instead of the world's stability.

      Can you put your venom away, and deal with facts. Either answer my specific comment and why you think it is wrong, or don't comment at all.
