    This was reported some time ago. Getting closer now, so just an update. So much for bringing them home, though.


    Anyway...

    The US Army is planning its biggest deployment of troops to Europe in 25 years, with 20,000 troops slated to take part in a massive force projection exercise at a time of increasingly adversarial relations with Russia.

    General Christopher Cavoli, the commander of US ground forces in Europe, said 20,000 US-based troops will deploy next year to Europe where they will join some 9,000 other US soldiers already stationed there.

    Some 37,000 troops will then take part in exercises across 10 European countries from May to June, he told reporters at the Pentagon.

    The US-based forces will begin flowing in in February, moving 13,000 pieces of equipment, including tanks, artillery and transport vehicles, across 2,500 miles (4,000 kilometers), he said.

    Heh heh. Yeah. And bipartisan, no doubt. Not a peep about it from the cable news entertainment platforms either. CNN, FOX, MSNBC...none of em.
