Suwalki Gap

With Trump saying he may not defend NATO members in the Baltic, the Suwalki Gap is becoming more relevant. It's the space between Kaliningrad (to Russia) and Belarus (a Russian satellite). If the Russians control the Gap, then they will have cut off the Baltic nations from the rest of Europe. Supplies and reinforcements would have to go by air or sea.

Even if Trump's America wouldn't support them, I imagine NATO would go forward anyway. Poland and Germany wouldn't sit there waiting.
