Russia threatens to pre-emptively strike nato missile sites, of which we are the main money source, if we push ahead with the deployment. And what does obama do? Umm, nothing? As usual.
This is exactly why we need a president with a set of balls. And I mean his own, not the ones his wife has. Do you think Ronald Reagan would have sat still for a threat like this? I think we all know the answer to that. Ronald Reagan almost single handedly brought down the soviet union.
Do you know how the world views us? We are no longer considered the last super power on the planet. We are considered weak and indecisive throughout the world. It matters more that people respect us than like us, and now we don't have either!
iran is doing just whatever the hell they want to do, russia is making threats like it's 1979, north korea is about to test a nuclear weapon, and obama goes on vacation, or plays golf, or makes a campaign stop. The world is going to hell on the express train and obama and his family live like kings without a care in the world.
How awesome would it be to be completely oblivious, to not be able to see past the nose of the BILLION dollar chariot that takes you from place to place at your will. Not very awesome at all if it meant my Country would suffer because of it. But that's just me...

Russia’s most senior military officer said Thursday that Moscow would strike and destroy NATO missile defense sites in Eastern Europe before they came online if the U.S. pushes ahead with deployment.
“A decision to use destructive force pre-emptively will be taken if the situation worsens,” Russian Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov said at an international missile defense conference in Moscow attended by senior U.S. and NATO officials.
The threat comes as talks about the missile defense system, which the U.S. and its allies insist is aimed at Iranian missiles, appear to have stalled.
“We have not been able to find mutually acceptable solutions at this point, and the situation is practically at a dead end,” Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said.
Ellen Tauscher, the U.S. special envoy for strategic stability and missile defense, insisted the talks about NATO plans for a missile defense system using ground-based interceptor missiles stationed in Poland, Romania and Turkey were not stalemated.
But she acknowledged Wednesday that the recent elections in Russia and the upcoming elections in the U.S. make it “pretty clear that this is a year in which we’re probably not going to achieve any sort of a breakthrough.”
