    There isn't that many Abrams ether maybe an armored battalion at best.

    If Russia attacked the Baltics they would overwhelm the small amount of US forces there easily.

    Simply put the US forces there aren't meant to fight Russian forces but deter them from an attack us attacking those forces would mean war.




    Russia is not stupid like the US/NATO/West, their is nothing for Russia in the Baltics, the EU or anywhere. The US and the EU are doing a very good job of destroying themselves, why would Russia inference?

    If Russia was attacked(Russia has no incentive to attack anyone), the country that the attack was coming from and the country that attacked would cease to exist(Russia does not start wars, Russia just ends them.)

    Dude everything you said literally has nothing to do with what I said

    It actually illustrates the West East divide very well. Troops on one side are seen as defensive by them but viewed from the other side as offensive.

    The troops in the Baltics are defensive in nature, regardless of personal views. It isn't an offensive force, a couple of thousand men pose no threat to the Russians.

    They are there for one reason if they are attacked by some Russian advance (not saying the Russians are planning to invade or will) that would mean going to war with US.

    @Par

    You are thinking about RTN, My post wasn't about any invasion just the troops there aren't for offensive purposes.

    This is why Russia space program is so sloowwww and dragging its feet in space , because the
    government is wasting a ton of money in totally meaningless distractions to glorify the past . Rolling Eyes
    Russia is a country that live in the past , that the only way it can feel proud about themselves is by looking far away in the past.


    look how these 2 idiots are drooling about the idea of building a multi millionaire project ,
    ANOTHER soviet era museum ,as if russia did not had enough of them.. hundreds if not thousands
    in all russia. Rolling Eyes




    it is incorrect to say russia have no money for space ,and "is doing what it can" , not true.
    putin waste the nation budget in populism , in totally useless things ,that don't help russia in any way
    to make their nation safer and more secure and neither modernize their outdated economy.

    instead of building luxury orthodox churches , or incredibly expensive museums  , instead of giving away for free money to senior russians living in israel or the baltics ,in gratitute for the patriotic war ,  why not invest that money in building a better future  instead?  staying in the past is only done
    by losers , people that still are unable to adapt to the present times they live and so look to the past
    to feel better about their nation ,since there is not to talk about , about russia contribution to the world in present .  

    this is why russia will always be a backwards nation , because they are literary living in the past ,and refuse to modernize their economy and culture , because they live in the past , not in the present times ,that they are supposed to make better . ressurrecting the past will not make russia a better nation at all , but more obsolete and outdated.

    Putin rules like a north korean dictator ,in many ways , and such monumental waste of money that putin does in totally symbolic things ,will not be possible if Russia was a true democracy ,and most of the budget of russia was under control NOT just in one person that is the president, , but had to be voted and supported by the parliament first and put under debate of why russia really needs that ?
    in what way that museum will help russia to become more secure and safer ? or improve the nation economy? or modernize it? No
