ii – NATO to the Balts – don’t worry, you are safe! Really, are you sure?

Just to illustrate my point  I would like to suggest you to have a look at a survey published in the FT, which was conducted in the Western Countries, our NATO allies in arms, so to speak.  There were few questions, but the most interesting was this; ‘Will you support or oppose troops from your country defending the Baltic states if Russia were to take a military action against them’.

According to the FT in Germany, Italy and Spain, more people say they would oppose the notion of their national troops rushing to defend the Baltic states than would support the idea.

In Germany, as many as 50 per cent of people say they would oppose national troops going to the defence of the three states, compared with only 26 per cent who say they would support it. Only in Britain and France do more people support the idea of their armies defending the Baltic states than oppose it.

Have a look at the survey.  Needless to say more…
