A Russian Defense Ministry official said stationing tanks and heavy weapons in NATO states on Russia’s border would be the most aggressive U.S. act since the Cold War. So is it worth it? Do we really need a showdown with Russia at the moment instead of handling the ISIS problem?
Carter, during a trip to Estonia’s capital, Tallinn, said on June 23 that the Baltic States — Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia, as well as Bulgaria, Romania, and Poland — have agreed to host elements of this equipment.
