It's starting to look like thugco is trying to bring back the days when the Ruskies were commies, the air was clean and sex was dirty. I give you the missle situation that could if cooler heads don't prevail turn to a crisis. Looks like the hawks would like to plant interceptor missles in Poland and a radar site in the Cech Republic.
And this is some of the reaction from countries in the neighborhood.
For those of you who were sleeping during history class a brief synopsis. Russia or the Soviet Union ( as it was called in the early 60's) was sneeking balistic missles into Cuba. The U.S. Spy planes made the discovery and threatened to blockade the waters around Cuba. What was not know but later disclosed was that the U.S. had put missles in Turkey close enough to hit the Soviet Union. Had it not been for the fact that two world leaders actually communicated with each other we all might not be sitting here today.
Update: I have finally figured out a way to post links in a blog. It is something of my own invention as none of the technical help I've received so far actually worked. As it is now difficult to post links in this manner I will have to keep them to a minimum until I can find a better solution. Thanks for trying Shayera.
