US 'poised' to roll heavy weapons into E. Europe: report

The Pentagon is “poised” to station heavy weapons for up to 5,000 American troops in several Eastern European and Baltic countries to deter Russian aggression, The New York Times reported Saturday. The proposal, if approved, would be the first time since the end of the Cold War that the US has had heavy military equipment — including battle tanks — in newer NATO members that were once under Moscow’s influence as part of the Soviet Union. It underlines growing concerns in Eastern Europe and in Washington about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intentions after the annexing of Crimea and the actions of pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine.
