    Russia threatens to strike NATO missile defense sites - Washington Times
    Russians are basically thugs, after all. Peter the Great tried his best to drag Russia into civilization, to no avail in the end. Even when the Soviet Union fell apart, it was replaced by criminals.

    Yeah, they've got Iskanders on border.

    But I think its nothing more than posturing. Small EU countries will continue to be bullied by Russia, just wait for the next winter!

    So you will set up missile defense under their nose and they wont be reacting???

    The whole world is thug when they stand up against US hegemony or do something not in weird interests of US.

    Again:

    That kind of saber-rattling is so 20th century.

    Still more acceptable than setting up missile defense and weakening Russian deterrence.

    Could be a set-up by Putin for Obama to do some posturing before the election.

    Remember Obama told Putin's Mini-Me that he would be more "flexible" after his re-election.
