US Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove NATO’s top military commander in Europe says US troops may soon be deployed to alliance member states in Eastern Europe as tensions near the border between Ukraine and Russia continue to escalate. US Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove has told the Associated Press that plans for boosting NATO’s military presence in Eastern Europe could involve the mobilizing of US troops, saying that he would not “write off involvement by any nation, to include the United States.” “Essentially what we are looking at is a package of land, air and maritime measures that would build assurance for our easternmost allies,” the four-star US general said in an interview with the AP. “I’m tasked to deliver this by next week. I fully intend to deliver it early.” More
