AP - NATO ministers approve new reinforcements for eastern Europe
The AP reports: "NATO defense ministers on Wednesday approved new multinational
reinforcements to beef up defenses of frontline alliance members most at
risk from Russia, the alliance's secretary-general announced.
Jens Stoltenberg said the plan adopted by the United States and NATO's
27 other members calls for the use of troops from multiple countries who
rotate in and out of eastern European member states rather than being
permanently based there."
Comment: Nice to see NATO taking Russia seriously. Still, this is the kind of thing that may look good on paper but will be very difficult to implement at a time when many European countries have been cutting back on their military budgets.
