"We are not going in," she said, according to NBC Los Angeles. "Putin is not going to provoke the world, NATO, and the rest of us into World War III."

Swedish foreign warrior on Sunday's attack: -A burning hell

Foreign fighter Jesper Söder (31) tells VG that he evacuated at least one Norwegian after the bomb attack on a military base near the border with Poland on Sunday morning.
Söder was ordered to gather everyone & evacuate by bus

"I gathered all Norwegians, Swedes, Danes & Finns. As many as I could.we received information that Russian troops would enter. That's why I said, 'We have an hour. Then they will strike again and completely destroy the base"

However much NATO training is given, however much military experience these mercenaries have, there is not much they can do if they are asleep in their barracks when cruise missiles start exploding.

Console and PC games tricked the youth into thinking war was fun. That it is always clear who and where the enemy is and that you can always proceed tactically. You always have enough equipment and supplies....
Russia had 'insiders' among foreign fighters on Ukraine base where 3 Brits feared killed

an 'insider' purporting to be a foreign recruit for Ukraine was working for Russian spy agencies before an airstrike killed scores more than previously reported
