    Yes, I'm sure we should all be worried about Venezuela attacking us with nuclear weapons, even though it would mean their certain destruction.

    Calm down. Several south american countries have civilian nuclear power. If venezuela complies with the NPT and IAEA inspections, which I expect they would, there's nothing to freak out over.

    The Russians can make this move because Bush spread us too thin fighting two wars. Plus once it was found out that iraq was bullshit, no one wanted to sign up. And then Mccain and bush back georgia trying to make it an issue for the elections and russia fucked some shit up in georgia and that cost us 1 billion dollars. So we fuck with their neghbors when we are spread thin and going bankrupt? Their paying us back for breaking them and many millionaires were made out of the ussr collapse and my god, we are headed for a great depression.

    I imagine we have one or two or three nukes pointed right at Chavez's pointy little head even as we speak.

    I wonder if in Russian message boards there was ever a thread called "While we were all worrying about the economy... [News]US To Put Missile Defense in Poland[/News]".

    A missile defense system is not the same as an offensive, first strike capability.

    Please. If you think a small missile designed to track and disable an intercontinental multiple warhead ballistic missile that can possibly destroy multiple targets and kill tens if not hundreds of thousands of people are equally classed weapons, I would like to hear your explanation.

    Well, there's a key word in that sentence there. "DEFENSE." Now if we put a US Missle Offensive shield... well, then I'd see what those KGB nutcases have their panties so tightly wound for. But seriously, a DEFENSIVE shield.

    The one thing I don't get is why the hell we're putting one in Poland. When was the last time Iran threatened Poland?
