There is much talk these days that Russia is just being paranoid….that NATO and the USA does not have any intentions of starting a new Cold War….
I had try to explain a little history of Russia to help my readers try to grasp their thinking….
Then the most recent build up in Eastern Europe of US armor……
Then more recent news of US troops moved to the Russia border in Norway…..
Tensions are already on the rise between the US and Russia over massive US deployments in Germany for a training exercise marching east toward Russia. A force of US Marines are now heading to Trondheim, Norway for another deployment along the Russian border.
Russia is none too happy, again, both annoyed at the US for deployment yet more troops along their border, and at Norway, who promised not to host any foreign troops on the Russian border when they became part of NATO. Norway insists this is just a temporary deployment and doesn’t count.
If the roles were reversed what would the US be saying and/or feeling about all the build-up?
