800 british troops (part of nato) to be deployed to Estonia border with Russia to deter Russian aggression.
The news article goes on to mention that russia might use fake news .......?.something good old blighty would never do. Is that a more pc way of describing propaganda.

Russia does not border Britain, so why don't we keep our noses out ? . Will we get loads of young girls and boys back with no arms or legs from fighting for someone else's problems ? Sort Britain out first! .

Its certainly provacative . Russia hasnt been proved to have done anything to justify it yet.

Distracts the people from other government antics, our money could be much better spent at home.

Canada are sending/or sent 450 troops to Latvia and Germany sending/sent 600 to Lithuania. plus more..

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...-where-are-they-positioned-a7562391.html

Not sure if Belarus is part of all this.

Erdogan is the one to be mistrusted in my opinion. He's had his tete a tete with Putin, about what, we'll never know. His coins have 3 sides.

Looks like we will contribute the most personnel out of the NATO countries again, lets hope we don't get left holding the rear guard, should anything happen.

Russia are no threat to us, the build up of troops on Russia's borders is unacceptable, how would America like it if Russia started deploying troops in Canada, Mexico and Cuba crazy

We are mad to be upsetting Russia, they are the largest producer of crude oil and the second largest producer of natural gas.

The USA is near enough self-sufficient for natural gas and has maintained a very close connection with Saudi for crude oil.

Overall if Russia switched off the taps the USA may not have a problem but European countries would. I've never gone along with the idea that the USA is happy for a new super-power being created called the EU.
