History Repeating??

I was Listening to an interview with the Latvian Minister, and wondered why NATO has not put a small presence there.

If you take a look at how it helped Germany during the cold war to have bases there – which included families who spent their money in that country – then you can see it would make both common and economic sense as well as providing security.

It would show Putin that if he messed with Latvia then he messed with the rest of the world, I would assume that even he would stop and think. Estonia could go the same way, their economy would be improved and that would also stop thoughts of an invasion.

If anyone can think back to the Conservative government just before the last war, they will see lots of equations to this government. The services being run down, tank and ship building is basically non existent, could Russia be looking this way? If NATO had troops in either Latvia, Estonia or both, then that would help with employment and send a message that the world has teeth, no one wants another war NO ONE!!!

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
