All this comes a day after Russia unveiled chilling pictures of its largest ever nuclear missile - Satan 2 - which is capable of obliterating the UK.
The United States hopes for binding commitments from Europe to fill four battle groups of some 4,000 troops, part of NATO's response to Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea and concern it could try a similar tactic in Europe's ex-Soviet states.
France, Denmark, Italy, and other allies are expected to join the four battle groups led by the United States, Germany, Britain, and Canada to go to Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia, with forces ranging from armored infantry to drones.
Tensions are high between Russia and the West after an escalation in posturing between President Vladimir Putin and Western leaders.
Last week Putin sent an aircraft carrier on a bombing mission to Syria in a fleet that passed through the English Channel.
In the past week, Britain has deployed RAF fighter jets to intercept Russian bombers nearing UK airspace twice in four days.
Earlier this month the Kremlin evacuated 40 million people in drills to prepare for nuclear war.
My Summary: Seems like Putin is preparing for some sort of war with the West (that he may or may not honestly want), and if the West acts or overreacts, then he will have someone to blame (just not himself). He sounds just like North Korea: “We will wipe you out if we are attacked since we are prepared to retaliate.”
Thanks for stopping by and reading this gloomy news.
