The United States looks to be flexing more muscle these days. The government is sending 12 F-15s and 350 airmen to Iceland and the Netherlands this past Friday to continue to be the world police/bully or as the mainstream media put it, to demonstrate its commitment to a free and secur Europe. This is something they haven't done since the Cold War. America is also sending 6 F-15s to Finland as well as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve. Apparently this is all happening due to NATO being unable to supposedly keep Russia from violating Icelandic airspace which has been happening here regularly. Due to Russia's alleged increased military activity in this region it is "necessary" to add forces. (New wrinkle in the brain, I did not know Iceland does not have a military.) I think the powers of the world that be are playing chess right now and slowly moving pieces around the world for the big one.
