United States Marines are coming to Norway! Something that could escalate things much further, how will Vladimir Putin respond to this?
This move was announced in Norway just this past Monday. It comes in the middle of severely rising tensions between the United States and Russia. The movement of these marines into Norway is set to begin in January, and will be approximately 330 Marines in total.
This is all based off of a statement released to CNN from the Norwegian Defense Ministry. The statement noted that a Marine presence in Norway (which borders Russia) will help to “increase NATO’s ability to rapidly aggregate and employ forces in northern Europe.” This is clearly preparation for World War Three.
The things that will develop because of this are unknown at this time, but we can only hope that somehow World War Three will be avoided given the fact that this war could quite possibly be more devastating than all of our past wars combined.
