I am aware, which led to my point...... Unlike the UK, Latvia doesn't have 100 nationalities to integrate. As JRM made allusion to in Grenfell, a myriad of cultures, don't always react the same way to authority, as your average brit born citizen.You'll find indignation in the Parliament of Latvia and her Ministries circa 2013/14 that Brussels did indeed censure Latvia for victimizing minorities (Russians).
What probably irritates me about the deployment is the nature of force.. What I mean, is Russia is only likely to invade, if Latvia behaves in a way that is perceived in Russia to be bad. So the trigger act is in the Latvian parliament, not the british and as such our forces become more like hostages to fate, rather than choosing the time and place.
