This is the last gasp effort of the Obama Administration and the old world to begin a conflict with Russia. The United States’ presence in Poland is another tactic by the United States to pressure Putin and the Russians. There is absolutely no reason why the United States should be there, but only for the reasons that the Democratic Neoconservatives can name. All these old world power structures are just that: old. There is no need for them, the world is shifting away from the old and is moving into a new age. NATO most certainly is not needed as it was just a proxy to keep the Russians in check post WWII and to keep Europe secure. The United States used the Baltic States and the Eastern Bloc to constantly play chicken with Russia over the last 40 years. The world doesn’t want it, doesn’t need it, and the global community needs to realize who the real aggressors have been.
