This makes no sense.
From the BBC:
The US is boosting its troop presence in eastern Europe in response to an "aggressive Russia", the military says.
An extra armored brigade is being deployed, meaning a total of three will be there on a continuous basis.
The BBC's diplomatic correspondent says it is the most significant US reinforcement of Nato since tensions flared over Russian action in Ukraine.
Last month the Pentagon announced plans to quadruple its budget for European defence in 2017.
The additional presence will increase US ability to conduct military exercises in the region.
The plan demonstrates "our strong and balanced approach to reassuring our Nato allies and partners in the wake of an aggressive Russia in eastern Europe and elsewhere", said Gen Philip Breedlove, the senior US commander in Europe.
"Our allies and partners will see more capability. They will see a more frequent presence of an armored brigade with more modernized equipment in their countries," he added.Why are we doing this?
We created NATO to fight the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union is no more. It died in 1991 and disbanded. Russia is not our foe, and could help us in this war just as it did in World War II.
These troops should be in Iraq fighting back Iran and its Islamic State army.
