One good consequence of Americans electing defeat-seeking Dems is that it has encouraged America’s enemies to show themselves. That’s a mistake – for the enemies, that is.
Dictator Putin is keen to protect the nuclear program of the Mullahs, notably their putative ability to nuke American cities. That’s possible in a decade, with Russian help, and the best counter the US has is its ABM system, and so:
Poland and the Czech Republic risk being targeted by Russian missiles if they agree to host elements of the proposed U.S. missile defense system, a top Russian general warned Monday in the latest in a series of increasingly bellicose statements from Moscow.
President Putin has said he does not trust U.S. claims that it wants to deploy missile defense components in Europe to counter threats from Iran, and warned that Russia could take retaliatory action.
…But Solovtsov voiced concerns that Washington, which is planning to deploy 10 interceptors in Poland, could boost their number in the future. He warned that a hypothetical military action could have “grave consequences for all parties involved.”
….Putin also warned in Munich that Russia could respond to the deployment of U.S. missile defense in Europe by building new, more efficient weapons. He had previously boasted that Russia was developing new missiles that would be impossible for an enemy to intercept.
The Soviet adventurists that tried this approach when the US was weak during and after Vietnam won temporary victories – killing a few million Asians and Africans. But the USSR still went down to defeat at the hands of Reagan.
That time the US was a benign victor – next time it will expunge this nasty nation.
