Obama Finally Takes Action in Poland – Leaves Consequences to Trump

Arrival of U.S. troops in Poland sparks Kremlin’s ire

Obama responds to the 2014 Russian takeover of Crimea. He allowed Russia time to make the occupation permanent and cynically gives Trump a problem to start his administration.

“Some 3,000 U.S. troops, under a NATO banner, are arriving in Poland and six other Eastern European countries in what a Kremlin spokesman calls a threat to Russia’s interest and security.

The deployment, which includes more than 80 main battle tanks and hundreds of armored vehicles, is part of NATO’s Operation Atlantic Resolve, which was launched in response to Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014.”
