Hodges called for the return of parts of the US Army in the Baltic States


According to him, after the land units of the US Army stationed in the Baltic countries were withdrawn, the United States could send logistics or air defense units to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia instead.

In my opinion, permanent placement of a logistics or air defense unit using rotational forces would be useful in terms of strengthening the containment policy. In addition, the US military in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania would also be present all the time.
- declared Hodges

The rotation of the US Army units in the Baltic countries was carried out from 2014 in response to Russia's actions in Ukraine, but after the deployment in the Baltic States and Poland last year along the NATO international battalion, the US military from the Baltic countries were withdrawn.

At the moment, the US army units are located mainly in Poland, from where they arrive at the exercises in the Baltic countries.

      And in my opinion, it will simply be "cannon fodder" at best, at worst nuclear dust .. soldier

      It’s possible to humor until you turn blue, but Kedmi absolutely rightly said that the Americans would never have suffered the Russian battalion in Mexico ... and we tolerate both in Ukraine and the Baltic states, and if we continue to chew snot, then in Moldova ...
      NATO rabble is hosted on our land and in this, I do not see anything funny. They are at war with us, and we are all looking for ways to come to an agreement. And from the outside it looks like complete idiocy. If you are beaten, you must give back so that the enemy lays down and doesn’t rise anymore, rather than breed demagogy, about partners, the rule of law, and every time you make excuses when we are excreted.

        Maybe it's time to return to Cuba? Yes, and in Camran at the same time.

    They have "former" commanders of some forces all the time making such statements!
    It follows from the same statement that they do not hope for their vassals!
