The United States has been showing force in Eastern Europe recently at the request of our allies in NATO located in the Baltic states and other Eastern European former satellites of the Soviet Union. This video is from the Estonian town of Narva, only 300 yards from the Russian border.
In another sign that NATO is looking to show even more resolve to defend its territory from further Russian advances, even more armor was offloaded this month in the Latvian port of Riga. Latvian Minister of Defense Raymond Vejonis.”The presence of our allies (US and NATO) in Latvia is a confirmation of solidarity and security in the region,” Vejonis said in a statement on Twitter.
The tanks were delivered to Latvia via Riga Freeport after being offloaded from the carrier ship Liberty Promise on Monday. US Army General John O’Conner who witnessed the tanks arriving on Latvian soil said, “Freedom must be fought for, freedom must be defended,” as reported by the US Embassy Riga Twitter feed.
