Who's Going To Blink This Time?

On the world's beach, Russia just kicked sand in our eyes. They are threatening to steal our lunch money and are making moves on our girlfriend. That's what happens when a bully perceives that you don't have the gumption to stop him.
Russia’s most senior military officer said Thursday that Moscow would pre-emptively strike and destroy U.S.-led NATO missile defense sites in Eastern Europe if talks with Washington about the developing system continue to stall.

“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.
NATO insists that their proposed anti-ballistic missile system is designed to only knock down Iranian missiles aimed at Europe.
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.”

She reiterated that the U.S.-built system, still in development, is being designed to shoot down Iranian intermediate-range missiles aimed at Europe, not Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).
Russia insists that that same system can take out their intercontinental ballistic missiles which, coinkydink, are also aimed at Europe.

Most likely the NATO system can; and if it can't, it darn well should.

An ICBM may have a higher altitude at it's flight apogee and a greater velocity but it still must return to earth at some point and at a lower altitude it may be vulnerable. Would NATO the US be so stupid as to purposefully design a system that would intercept an IRBM and be defenseless against an ICBM? Gauging the foreign policy initiatives of President Blinky, do we dare answer that in the negative....

Let's see how Obama handles this during an election year, seeing as he has already burned the Brits by giving away some of their nuclear secrets.
Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week.

Defence analysts claim the agreement risks undermining Britain’s policy of refusing to confirm the exact size of its nuclear arsenal.

The fact that the Americans used British nuclear secrets as a bargaining chip also sheds new light on the so-called “special relationship”, which is shown often to be a one-sided affair by US diplomatic communications obtained by the WikiLeaks website.
There is nothing of value to the US or our allies that is sacred to Obama. He will betray anyone and anything in order to obtain his goal of destabilizing and marginalizing our nation.

Remember when Carter was in, Americans were being held by the government of Iran. Regan got elected and the Iranians couldn't send the Americans home fast enough.

WoFat - I certainly do remember. Reagan has a great sense of humor. Remember when he said that the bombs would start falling on the USSR in five minutes? Obama would say he'd be on his knees in one.

TSWS - It's all American systems anyway. Europe hasn't been able to defend Europe since about 1904.
