The Germans Should Put Their Money Where Their Mouth Is

If the Germans are so worried about Russian missiles in Kaliningrad, I suggest the Germans create two divisions with the mission of overrunning that Russian exclave.

Do tell?

A decision by Russia to permanently station Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad, its enclave on the Baltic Sea, would mark a setback for European security, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel told Russian news agency Interfax on Wednesday. ...

"If Iskander missiles were stationed in Kaliningrad permanently, that would be a cause for great concern and a blow to European security," Gabriel said. "That is why we are watching what's happening in Kaliningrad very carefully."

Germany is weak militarily.

But if Germany is truly worried about the missiles, the Germans should step up to accomplish what I believe should be the first NATO offensive action in a war initiated by Russia.

So what do you say Germany? Will you build a new two-division corps dedicated to crushing that exclave as rapidly as possible to end the threat to European security?
