    All of the sudden, the US and Poland have reached a deal on the basing of US missles in Poland.
    A key part of the agreement?
    These negotiations have been going on for years, the US and Poland both had their reservations but:

    Poland flipped Russia the Bird.

    Europe cowers.

    All the world's lefties are silent: Abu Ghraib was America's crime; Georgia is Russia's imperative.

    Russia is suffering from wishful beta-like issues.

    Leftie-like.

    Of course. Poland is a member of NATO. Not defending them would be the same as not defending England. Also, there will be US soldiers stationed there, and, of course, our missle base.

    i know you want to belive that but seriously, look around. How many troops would the US ACTUALLY commit if it came down to it. My guess would be enough hellicopters to evacuate any troops you have in the country.

    Worse yet, not defending Poland would pretty much mean the collapse of NATO. God forbid that happens.

    I read today that Russia threatened Poland with a nuclear first strike if they put the missile shield there. The Day Before theory might turn out to be true.

    The theory goes that if the US were to develop and deploy an effective anti ballistic missile shield that could neutralize Russian missiles, Russia would make a first strike on NATO almost immediately before the system goes online. Scary shit.

    Welcome to the new Cold War. I hope the US can grow a set. We've seriously been lacking when it comes to balls recently.

    This makes the idea of a Obama presidency all the more frightening. I dont trust him to handle these incompetent radical Muslim terrorists let alone to go toe-to-toe with the friggin Kremlin.

    I hope McCain can leverage this new Russian threat to beat that Marxist son of a bitch.

    You sure ?
    Remember when Britain was facing down Germany, and the US was still undecided ? We might have a similar situation here, With the US facing down others such as China and possible Iran, before entering the War.

    The United States only looks out for their own, always has and always will.
    There is no such thing as Altruism in war. maybe in peace time, such as East Timor, but even that was partially for our own interest.

    Dude - NATO.

    I really dont know how much insight you can take away from that example. NATO can not collapse.
