President Joe Biden is now reportedly considering whether or not to send significant amounts of American troops to the NATO allies in eastern europe, including several that have borders with Russia, as tensions in the region soar.

As DNYUZ reports:

WASHINGTON — President Biden is considering deploying several thousand U.S. troops, as well as warships and aircraft, to NATO allies in the Baltics and Eastern Europe, an expansion of American military involvement amid mounting fears of a Russian incursion into Ukraine, according to administration officials.

The move would signal a major pivot for the Biden administration, which up until recently was taking a restrained stance on Ukraine, out of fear of provoking Russia into invading. But as President Vladimir V. Putin has ramped up his threatening actions toward Ukraine, and talks between American and Russian officials have failed to discourage him, the administration is now moving away from its do-not-provoke strategy.

In a meeting on Saturday at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, senior Pentagon officials presented Mr. Biden with several options that would shift American military assets much closer to Mr. Putin’s doorstep, the administration officials said. The options include sending 1,000 to 5,000 troops to Eastern European countries, with the potential to increase that number tenfold if things deteriorate.

The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk publicly about internal deliberations.

Biden is set to make a decision on the matter as early as this week. Many conservatives were extremely unhappy with Biden’s new aggressive posture on Ukraine, sighting the significant risk of a full scale war with a nuclear power over a nation which is not aligned with the US:

I am a retired officer, and strongly pro-defense, but I think we should disband NATO and have only bilateral military alliances. What do these E. European countries mean to us? Frankly, if Russia took Romania, does Russia become a bigger strategic threat to us? It would be a bummer for the Romanians, but too bad.
