That sound you hear is all our allies shuffling papers to re-examine their treaty relationships with us.

Every country that falls within the sphere of influence of a potential aggressor, say Putin’s Russia, or more emphatically, China, just learned that the supposed benefits of being allied with the United States is worth exactly nothing.  And so, they’ll react accordingly, and make accommodations, against our interests, with those nations.

H/T to Fringe.

    1. I’ve heard the Swedes are reinforcing Gotland because of the concerns.

      If the Ukes won’t answer the call, then they will end up back in Mother Russia. They’re raiding colleges because the boys aren’t answering call up notices.

      1. Wiki says they’ve posted a mech/armored battalion on Gotland. Further plans to expand defenses. So at least Sweden thinks the threat is plausible.

    2. “There’s a growing concern that Russia might try to seize part of Gotland.”

      Sounds unlikely to me. Not only would it be an act of war to which Sweden would have to respond (population 50,000+), it would rejuvenate NATO. Militarily, there is no way they could hold it even if they could take it.
