U.S. Troops in Poland As Ukraine Crisis Persists

This is some serious shit.


Kiev (CNN) -- A contingent of U.S. Army paratroopers arrived in Poland on Wednesday, the first of what will be a "persistent presence" of U.S. troops as the crisis in nearby Ukraine continues to unfold.
The company-sized contingent will conduct training exercises with Polish counterparts and is visiting at the request of Poland.
The joint exercises are a symbol of force as the conflict in Ukraine between pro-government and pro-Russian factions continues unabated. The United States and Russia accuse each other of fomenting unrest in Ukraine.
The U.S. troops stood in formation at an airfield next to Polish troops as military leaders from both countries addressed them, reiterating the alliance between their nations.

"Poland has been there for the United States, and today, as the transatlantic community confronts Russia's unacceptable aggression against Poland's neighbor, Ukraine, a sovereign and independent state, we have a solemn obligation in the framework of NATO to reassure Poland of our security guarantee," said Stephen Mull, the U.S. ambassador to Poland.
The United States will maintain a presence in Poland at least through the end of the year, he said.
Russia has deployed what NATO estimates to be 40,000 troops near its border with Ukraine, something that has made other countries like Poland nervous.
The military exercises in the Polish city of Swidwin are "a result of what's going on in Ukraine," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Tuesday. "What we're after here is persistent presence, a persistent rotational presence."
Four companies of paratroopers based in Italy will be sent to Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia over the next few months for military exercises, he said.
Addressing the assembled troops from the U.S. and Poland on Wednesday, U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Richard C. Longo said the joint exercises are a manifestation of the strong commitment the two countries have to each other.
"Despite the uncertainty of the world and this region, I am certain of one thing about the United States Army in Europe: We have the capacity, we have the commitment, we have the will to fulfill our NATO obligations," he said.

Protesting a possible war in anyway is futile, as history has showed us

Don't worry, we're only in Poland to teach them how to screw in lightbulbs.

Russia won't be intimidated by this, if America tries to put troops into the Ukraine Russia WILL retaliate....This is very dangerous....Russia isn't a middle Eastern country with a rag tag military, it has cogency!
