Russia Wastes No Time
Russia announced today that they will be deploying missiles near Poland as a response to the U.S.'s missile defense plans while expressing hope that the new administration will work to improve relations.Could Russia be the first nation attempting to test our new, inexperienced president like they tested John F. Kennedy as Joe Biden has predicted? People like to remember a strong JFK standing up to the Russians during the Cuban Missile Crisis, but in fact it became apparent later he capitulated to the Russians, agreeing to pull missiles out of Turkey and to stay out of Cuba's affairs. Will Obama also back down to Russian aggression?
Poland is a NATO member and to allow Russia to threaten them in this way is an outrage.
