In the first major deployment of U.S. troops to Europe since the end of the Cold War, a bunch of U.S. tanks, humvees, and other equipment just rolled off the boat in Bremerhaven, Germany. This is apparently a brigade of 87 tanks and 144 other military vehicles along with 3500 troops from the 4th Infantry Division to be deployed to Poland in order to serve as targets if the Russians decide to invade. Because that damn well isn’t enough troops to stop a million Russians from rolling over Poland if they wished. No, the whole point is for them to be hostages — to be targets that the Russians have to take out if they roll over Poland. The point is that if Russia invades and kills these men and women, it is an act of war against the United States and World War 3 is *on*, bitches.
So yeah, hostages. My guess is that those soldiers have all made sure their next of kin information is up to date.
As for whether President Trump will withdraw them and say to the Russians, “here, have Europe”… well, only time will tell. It depends on whether any of those Russian prostitutes giving Trump a golden shower were underage, I suspect….
