Even More BAD news from Russia
Putin has his eye on the Baltics, something even Obama seems to have regrettably accepted. I say this because he just sent 3,000 U.S. troops to Poland — for the first time since WWII. The Poles welcomed them with open arms, and a silent prayer that Putin will hesitate before attacking Poland, or her neighbors, because attacking Poland now — means attacking U.S. troops directly.
Obama has been quietly putting troops in the expected path of the Russian onslaught for over a year now. Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine (probably) have all gotten men and equipment — and Germany has been secretly and massively reinforced. Good for Obama.
Let’s hope Putin isn’t REALLY planning to use the missile defense system, described below in Mailonline:

Russia has deployed anti-aircraft missile systems around Moscow to protect the capital from attack in the latest sign Vladimir Putin is preparing for war.
The s-400 Triumph air defence system has been providing air cover for Russian forces in Syria since November, and is now being deployed on home soil.
It is capable of hitting moving airborne targets including planes and incoming missiles and has a range of 400km. The news has emerged the day the US sent more than 3,000 troops to Poland in response to Nato’s concern Russia was becoming more aggressive.
