In a move which is already looking to revitalize the tensions between Russia and NATO, Poland’s Defense Minister has announced that the United States will deploy their promised missile defense in Morag, just 35 miles from the Russian border.
The US had originally planned for a missile defense base in Poland, sparking Russian ire and a threat of a retaliatory build-up in neighboring Kaliningrad. The base was scrapped, however, and the Obama Administration only later promised a Patriot missile commitment to Poland.
Both missile defense systems were ostensibly aimed at a missile threat from Iran, even though Iran’s best missiles have a maximum range well short of Poland. Russia has long suspected the systems were actually aimed at them, and the Polish decision to deploy them even closer to the border will likely reinforce that belief.
Shortly after the announcement, the Russian Navy announced that it is going to considerably upgrade its Baltic Fleet in Kaliningrad, adding a new class of warships with cruise missiles to the fleet.

Well since it is a well known fact that raciting up tentions with other counties/idieologies never has the slightest reporcutions, not to mention it is public knowledge that the bear has gone into almost complete coma since the fall of the wall…
Hrmm…wait just a moment…
Perhaps now that I think of it we do infact live in the REAL world, a world bound by actions and reactions, DECISIONS and CONSEQUENCES!
I sure hope they know what they are doing playing chicken like that.
Iraq and Afghanistan are lost. the mighty USA still canc secure am are that is smaller than the State of Texas. now you are picking on Russia ? why dont you go home and rebuild you economy before a total collapse. it is America that is constantly stirring the Flames. it is time to bring the War to the home front so Americans come to realize what it is about.
The secret attachment to the Polish-American treaty of that allows for placing missiles that are supposed to protect against Iranian missiles is called Polish-Amercian Nuclear Pact.
For sure Americans will place nukes in Poland. No doubt these nukes will be directed towards Russia, not Iran.
just a map note here ,that little piece of russia (between lithuania & polarazation land)looks a little like alaska,if the warm waters of the persian gulf resemble the melting glaciers of the artic,OO,try holding yer map upside down
Jct: Now that their phony war on terror is falling apart, I guess Obama's going to have to pick a fight with Russia again. Remember the denunciations when Kruschev tried to put missiles in Cuba which the US felt warranted war in response, and now they're doing what warranted war from them to Russia again. Such never-ending hypocrisy makes me want to upchuck.
Boy we just push and push and push, untill Alex Jones taught me what is really going on in the world 6 years ago, I would have believed our sorry government that we needed to do this in order to protect from Iran. When you think about it it is the stupidest excuse anyone could imagine but sadly, there are alot of people in this country that believe this crap and the "war on terror" while our government is doing everything they can to take our guns but all I can say is, wake the hell up you are being lied to because the CIA is really running the show along with the criminal banking cartell. http://WWW.PRISONPLANET.COM Listen to Alex Jones tell you the truth.
