EUCOM Top Priority: Deterring Russia

Stars and Stripes reports that “Russia’s re-emergence as the top security threat in Europe demands a fresh examination of how American power is deployed on the Continent, where a steady post-Cold War drawdown has left the military undermanned.”

“That’s the conclusion of U.S. European Command’s first strategy document in four years.”

“’Reduced U.S. forward presence and degraded readiness across the services are inhibiting the United States’ ability’ to favorably influence security conditions, the ‘Theater Strategy’ document says.”
