We shouldn’t be sending any more troops to Europe…
Despite this, the U.S. government has agreed to send 500 more troops to Europe to bolster NATO security in the region in the face of ongoing Russian military aggression.
It never ceases to amaze me how these same people clamored on that President Trump would start WWIII, and now here they are war mongering in full view…
Here are the latest developments in the ongoing conflict:
The U.S. is deploying another 500 troops to Europe in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, a senior defense official said, pushing the total number of American forces in the region to 100,000 https://t.co/V74fgfolrk

Insider Paper confirmed:
The United States has already deployed 12,000 additional soldiers to Europe this year, but President Joe Biden has stressed that US troops will not engage in a conflict with Russian forces in Ukraine.
Over the weekend, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin ordered an extra “500 US military personnel to locations in Europe to augment existing forces,” the defense official told reporters.
With #Biden's ramp up, there's now 100,000 U.S. troops in the European theater and many more may be deployed there- I wonder if 150,000 may be stationed in E. European #NATO countries? #Militaryhttps://t.co/2whv8S47ip pic.twitter.com/alKUaVCgf1

More than 5,000 U.S. troops deployed to Poland are still more than 5 miles from the Ukrainian border in assembly areas: senior U.S. defense official.
U.S. troops have so far helped sporadically with American evacuees, but most leaving Ukraine are "doing it on their own"

The Wall Street Journal had more on the increased U.S. troop presence in Europe:
President Biden has said that U.S forces wouldn’t enter Ukraine. Rather, U.S. forces have been deployed to North Atlantic Treaty Organization states to bolster security on the alliance’s eastern flank, closest to the conflict, and to send a message of deterrence to Russia.
