Unintended - But Expected - Consequences

Bush the Lesser was really great with all that pre-emptive stuff as an excuse to go kill people and break things in somebody else's country.

Well, guess what?

The Russians now think that this pre-emptive excuse for a military strike anywhere they feel like will also work for them:

Russia's most senior military officer said Thursday that Moscow would strike and destroy NATO missile defense sites in Eastern Europe before they come 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.

This could get serious if Obama suddenly grew a pair and decided to face them down.

Like the OMFR, completely-bought-off hilljacks that occupied the White House before him, 0borg will do what he is told by BanKhazar...or else! As a family mouse, he has too much to lose otherwise, and unlike America, Putin's Russian Federation is solvent.
