I am tired of fake news @YarS Reason they play it out this way is very simple. Is to show Russia that we have no antention to build up for a big war right now. If one nation start to build bigger Army so will Russia do. So we all end up having a big army we dont use. That will cost both side to much money. Here in Norway they make a big news out of it. Every day for many years. So what is the point shout out every day? Russia will see when it start to get dangerous and when it is time to build there own army bigger. And that is same way for west Europe too.
