FOCUS OF DELUSION IN THE MODERN WORLD:

Russia threatening new cold war over missile defence: Kremlin accuses US of deception on east European interceptor bases (Luke Harding, April 11, 2007, The Guardian)

Russia is preparing its own military response to the US's controversial plans to build a new missile defence system in eastern Europe, according to Kremlin officials, in a move likely to increase fears of a cold war-style arms race.

The Kremlin is considering active counter-measures in response to Washington's decision to base interceptor missiles and radar installations in Poland and the Czech Republic, a move Russia says will change "the world's strategic stability".


With their declining population, falling life expectancies and a GDP per capita of 12k, they're about as much of a threat as Grenada was.

Russia can't even invade Russia successfully, yet I fear this new 'crisis' brought on by those crazy, evil, unilateral, cowboy Americans. Can't you just hear them 'yee-hah' as they clump about in their cowboy boots and spread their McDonald's everywhere, threatening indigenous dictators with their wealth and success? It's enough to make a Guardian writer put down his tea and cuddle under the desk with his 'Che' blankie for comfort.

Hate those Americans; just hate them.

That's ok, let them build counter measures, so we can build an even better missile defense (ie. lasers). And once that happens, no adversary will be able to put anything up in the air anywhere...bwahhaaa haa haa haa!!!!
