Something that really has not been discussed much is the fact that Poland just agreed to allow the USA to place a missile defense system inside its borders. This coming after Russia attacked Georgia. It looks like Russia may have just fucked up. Poland was reluctant to allow us to put our missile defense system in their country because they did not want to enrage Russia, well with Russia now on the warpath Poland has turned to us and our defense shield.
Of course this “agreement” is only in its infancy and has yet to be confirmed by their congressional body and President.
Good move W!
