#2 Russia's most senior military officer said Thursday that Moscow would preemptively strike and destroy U.S.-led NATO missile defense sites in Eastern Europe if talks with Washington about the developing system continue to stall.

Only in a feckless Obama administration would the Russians make such threats.

#3 Weakness in the face of islamofascism is bound to provoke forces besides those of islamofascism.

When the last remaining superpower is challenged on her own territory, goes to war and loses the war the consequences will necessarily be global.

Non nuclear sh*tty little Afghanistan could slaughter thousands in the US without serious consequences. Why should nuclear Russia fear the American reaction to an attack not on the US but a NATO country?

It is far from clear the the US security umbrella covers even US territory. How can American security guarantees for other nations be taken seriously?

The 'World without America' (which I did not wish for) is a reality that allies of the US have to accept and must adapt to.

#4 How's that Reset Button and "post re-election flexibility" working out for ya, Champ. Russians can smell a needy p*ssy. They know you inherently want to delete the Missile Defense Shield and are willing to sell us out.

#5 Act Of War. Someone may want to remind them of just how vulnerable they are to US submarines in terms of making Russian ships disappear, and how we have all kinds of fun restive minorities we can fund inside their border.

#6 I still think Russia is more worried about missile sales than anything else. Beyond that, what happened to giving Obama room? Perhaps that died when the sound bite got out, or this is fake barking to give Obama the chance to be a foreign policy hero.

#7 what happened to giving Obama room?

reality. Unknown (to him) disclosures that he'd sell the US down the river to complete his two terms. Fuck him and his anti-American agenda
