Frants Klintsevitsj, a deputy chairman of Russia's defence and security committee, told TV2 that Russia views the presence of 330 Marines in Norway as a direct military threat that demands a reaction.
Klintsevitsj, considered one of Russia's most influential defence politicians, said that Norway may now be added to "the list of targets for our strategic weapons".
"This is very dangerous for Norway and Norwegians," he said.

Russian rhetoric makes them sound like the paranoid drunk at the bar, eventually everyone will turn on him or he'll be barred and have to sit his drunk ass on the curb and ponder what he is doing with his life.

If anything, Norway, the Baltics and Poland will be much safer with these recent troop deployments. Doesn't really matter what the russians say or do at their own territory, they won't attack these countries just because of these troops. If they did, it would mean instant WW3 and probable total destruction of Russia.
This deterrence tactic NATO is using seems to be the most effective way to avoid war.
