    The United States and Poland remain close allies despite President Obama's decision to drop plans for a missile defense shield in the Eastern European country, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk insisted Thursday.

    But Tusk may have felt differently Wednesday night, when he got a phone call to tell him about Obama's decision, which would be announced the following day.

    Tusk told Polish radio that he did not want to speak with Obama on Wednesday night because he wanted to "properly prepare for the discussion."

    But Politico.com reported Friday that it wasn't Obama on the line -- that Tusk actually rejected a call from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton -- who called him to detail the plan -- because as a head of government, he thought he should hear from Obama directly.

    I don't get it. The missile shield was supposedly to protect Poland against missiles from Iran that don't even exist yet. What does this have to do with the Russians?

    Why would we be spending money we don't have to protect Poland in the first place?

    Yup. BHO pissed off an ally to capitulate to irrational paranoia of the Russians.

    Funny thing is, we all know the Russians are anything but irrational. All they had to do was whine a bit, depend on misinformation in the press about this system, and the BHO groupies/public opinion would support this. The public were used as tools.
