I have a bit of text from here. But first, a map or two.
My objection goes to the part where the author mentions that US airborne forces are poised in Germany, Romania and Poland. Just out of curiousity,
1. Has anyone discussed with the boobs in the White House just how long parachute dropping aircraft survive in contested airspace when both belligerents have the most modern anti-air weapons on the planet?
2. Has anyone discussed with the nincompoops running the State Department if any of the named countries are willing to be a party to staging U.S. forces for a counterinvasion of Ukraine should it come to a shooting war with the Russian Federation? Those familiar with history have to look no further than our first big war in Iraq when our NATO ally and partner Turkey stabbed us in the back and refused to give permission for the 4th Infantry Division to transit Turkish soil forcing them to go around to the Persian Gulf if they meant to take part in the invasion and sort of putting a wobble in the devestating pincer attack that Schwarzkopf was going to destroy the Iraqi army with. And, let us not forget our ever faithful ally France which joined NATO allies in Spain and Portugal and refused permission for the USAF F-111s staging out of bases in England to overfly their sovereign territory when we retaliated against Qadafi and Libya for the PanAm bombing.
I really don't think Poland and Romania will give permission for attacks out of their sovereign countries and I know Germany won't.
I'm not sure what all the fuss is about and can't help but wonder if we're watching morons slide us all into a war they created because they cannot think of a non-embarrassing way of saying, "oops, sorry about that."
Look again at the maps and see how many countries that once existed less than a hundred years ago no longer exist and the plethora of 'new' countries that sprang into existence when nobody in the White House was looking or cared.
