Fort Trump planned to be built in Poland

This is not the Onion--from Bloomberg:

Poland is nearing a deal with the U.S. to establish an American military base in the former Communist bloc country, according to people familiar with the matter -- an outpost the Poles see as a deterrent to Russian aggression and that the Kremlin would likely consider a provocation.

If a deal is reached, President Donald Trump is considering traveling to Poland in the fall, in part to commemorate the agreement. But it’s unclear whether he fully supports the idea, even after he said during a September meeting with Polish President Andrzsej Duda that the U.S. was looking “very seriously” at establishing a base. Duda, who joked that it could be named “Fort Trump,” remains committed to contribute $2 billion for its construction.

3. This is not going to make his lord and master happy.

But he's so stupid, all someone has to do is tell him that his name will be on something and he'll back it.

5. This should make it easier for Putin to monitor US communications.



Trump is always glad to do anything that
will help out his Russian puppetmaster.

6. Yep - and it also creates a pretext to put secret military capability "closer to the boss".



That way the Russians don't have to travel to far to get the latest/greatest. We can just ship it over there and then, by coincidence, forget to lock the garage door.

What an asshat.
