The possibility of a permanent U.S. military base in Poland moved a few steps forward this week.
U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis met with his Polish counterpart Mariusz Blaszczak Tuesday to discuss Poland’s offer to spend $2 billion on a permanent base for U.S. troops and their families in the country. The base was jokingly called “Fort Trump” by Poland’s president after meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump.

If this does go forward, I think it would be the largest permanent US base to be established in Europe in decades....and the fact that Poland is willing to put up 2 Billion to establish a base says quite a bit about thier concern regarding thier eastern neighbors.
