    US, NATO Troops Parade Near Russian Border in Estonia

    US, NATO Troops Parade Near Russian Border in Estonia - ABC News

    Troops and vehicles from U.S. and NATO regiments have taken part in a military parade during Estonia's Independence Day near the Russian border, in the first known official appearance of the forces so close to the former Cold War enemy.

    Some 1,400 Estonian and multinational troops participated in the Tuesday parade in the eastern border town of Narva, separated from Russia by a narrow river. The annual independence parade is rotated between various Estonian towns.

    It was the first time that American soldiers based in the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have paraded so close to the Russian border.

    Estonia's military said Wednesday the usual flyovers by NATO fighters during such parades were not held because international regulations forbid military flights near international borders.

    Putin's not going to like this much.

    These small countries have far larger Russian minorities to subvert than Ukraine has after all so they have plenty to worry about

    If the Russian Federation didn't have a massive stockpile of nuclear weapons I would have preferred isolating them from the global economic order at the end of the Cold War, allowing greater access as they made gradual democratic reforms.

    Letting them in has allowed their authoritarian regime to undermine our system from within, the result being the democratic recession.

    Unfortunately, we have to make efforts to preserve the stability of their government to ensure that nuke arsenal doesn't go on an international tour.

    Our troops have the most kick-ass parades when you look at it...

    Must be due to the fact that the USA is home to the most prestigious military in the world.

    During my time on active duty and in the national guard, I only did one parade, and that was as a National Guard member.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    These states could be next on the hit list for his grand rebuilding project of the Russian empire. Based on the western response to Ukraine and even though they are NATO members Putin may well gamble that the West won't go to mushrooms over the Baltics if he plays the same 'cute' subversion game again there . He could well be right too

    Might be something to that as well as using the current ME crises to deflect from his actions.

    I honestly feel we have taken our eye off the ball here and are ignoring a far greater danger to world peace
