BREAKING: Biden To Deploy U.S. Soldiers To Eastern Europe As Tensions With Russia Escalate

Democrat President Joe Biden put the U.S. one step closer to having a potential military conflict with Russia on Friday when he told reporters that he is moving U.S. soldiers to Eastern Europe.

“I’ll be moving troops to Eastern Europe in the NATO countries in the near term,” Biden told reporters. “Not too many.”

Biden’s remarks come after Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley warned on Friday that a Russian invasion into Ukraine would yield “horrific” results as the administration believes that Russia has amassed approximately 100,000 soldiers near the Ukrainian border.

“Given the type of forces that are arrayed … if that was unleashed on Ukraine, it would be significant, very significant, and it would result in a significant amount of casualties,” Milley said at a Pentagon press briefing. “You can imagine what that might look like in dense urban areas, along roads, and so on and so forth. It would be horrific. It would be terrible. And it’s not necessary. And we think a diplomatic outcome is the way to go here.”

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin told reporters on Friday that conflict with Russia was “not inevitable.”

“There’s no reason that this situation has to devolve into conflict,” Austin said. “He can choose to de-escalate. He can order his troops away. He can choose dialogue and diplomacy.”
