NATO Cmdr.: U.S. troops may be sent to Eastern Europe to counter Putin power grabs

NATO’s top military commander in Europe, drafting counter moves to the Russian military threat against Ukraine, said Wednesday they could include deployment of American troops to alliance member states in Eastern Europe now feeling at risk.

U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove told The Associated Press he wouldn’t “write off involvement by any nation, to include the United States.”

Foreign ministers of the 28-nation alliance have given Breedlove until Tuesday to propose steps to reassure NATO members nearest Russia that other alliance countries have their back.

“Essentially what we are looking at is a package of land, air and maritime measures that would build assurance for our easternmost allies,” Breedlove told the AP. “I’m tasked to deliver this by next week. I fully intend to deliver it early.”

This is all smoke and mirrors! As I understand it Obama has done nothing but tell Putin he's a "naughty boy" and if he doesn't behave himself Obama will shake his finger at him. Why is NATO not talking to Russia directly. This was seen as the prearranged next step in cutting deals with Russia. We still give them aid and give them contracts. The  distancing ourselves from Russia is counter productive because we have assets there, they will suffer; Obama is far worse than Carter yet he is still working from Carters notes. We can not afford to continue with Obama in our capital.
