'Fully ready to be lethal': US-led NATO battalion to be deployed to Poland

'Fully ready to be lethal': US-led NATO battalion to be deployed to Poland | 20 March 2017 | A US-led battalion of over 1,100 soldiers will be deployed in Poland in the beginning of April to deter what is said to be possible Russian "aggression," with the unit's commander stressing that his troops are ready to use lethal force. The NATO battle group to be stationed in Orzysz, 220 kilometers northeast of the capital, Warsaw, will include more than 900 American troops, around 150 British personnel and some 120 Romanian servicemen, Reuters reported. Russia has repeatedly criticized NATO’s buildup in Eastern Europe, which it views [and is] a threat to its national security. In February, Russian President Vladimir Putin blamed NATO for endangering global peace by trying to provoke a conflict with Moscow through its "newly-declared official mission to deter Russia."
