Pole Position : More U.S. Troops Sent to Russian Border


www.atlanticfreepress.com

First Georgia, now Poland. The Bush Administration announced Thursday that American soldiers will begin manning missile sites in Poland — part of an agreement that surpasses even the NATO treaty in binding Washington to an armed response to any attack on Polish soil

Under false pretense that the NATO missile bases are strictly in place to protect from an Iranian intercontinental attack. Russia is finding herself being incircled by NATO and U.S. missiles. Recently Ukraine has offered satellite defense co-operation with Europe and the U.S.

Well, not much has changed really. The "cold war" timeout appears to be over and Putin is another soviet style tyrant that has learned to adapt and transform Russia to what is called "Authoritative Capitalism" which is the new Pollitically correct word used for Fascism. Both China & Russia have become extremely successful with this form of government.... no red tape, compete Authoritarian control.

Really, this is even more dangerous of a situation than the old communist guard. At least there was a bit more "shared" party power under that system. Now we have a complete Russian dictatorship with the economy and leverage (energy) that the old Soviet guard never had.

This is a very dangerous situation and the West had better wake up and prepare.

We may be heading into some dark times soon

So the Military Industrial Complex, caused the Georgian issue to make Russia look bad to warrant the missile shield?
To make themselves more profits?
Maybe Russia is in on it.Maybe its all one huge setup.
Seems its working to most of the world is against Russia on this.

I think 'a return to the Cold War' or a grand conspiracy are hopeful outcomes compared to what may be happening. If this keeps up we could see a Hot War as in Nuclear. We're surrounding Russia with ABM's. We are blatantly messing with their Nuclear Deterrent. Telling them straight up 'Use em or Lose em'!

I don't think this will be a cold war . Based on everything Russia has said I am lead to believe that they plan on hitting any missile shield before it's ever brought online .

You need to upgrade your map and your education. the "WEST" has Always been the USA .. Infact it has been the main descriptive word for everyone in Nato for generations. Mainly the United states.

For the most part when people talk about the "West" they have been talking about America .. Not the EU etc .. Even though the EU is now days thought of a extension of the "West"..

Your headline states that US forces would be "on the border" protecting Poland from Russian troops and this assertion is simply not the case. They will be at the missile sites... Big Difference!

I believe the writer of the article is refering to U.S. forces would be manning missile sites in Poland rather than patroling the Polish borders.

Seeing as "President" Putin's intentions are appearing to be the reconstruction of the the USSR, it only makes sense the free countries of Eastern Europe would want to do anything to not fall back under the rule of the tyrannical Mother Russia.

Russia is the one who has been threatening everyone for years. You have the harassing bomber flights and them saying that a missile defense system that only has ten interceptors is somehow a threat to them.

Russia is acting like a baby and how dare they threaten to nuke someone who is not threatening them. Come on threaten the U.S. tough guys, Pick on someone your own size and watch your county burn. We are not afraid of your prop planes and missiles that can not hit the broadside of a barn or should I say oil pipeline.

I say we all turn off the nukes on each side and have the U.S. forces run up through Turkey and watch how fast they cut through the big bad Russian bear. It would be desert storm all over again. Smoking T-series tanks everywhere while the red white and blue waves high in Moscow.

Cool, America's sticking it's neck out there to protect Europe, too. Thanks, America!

Oh how the arrogant Europeans are going to be regretting their hatred of America once Putin starts flexing his muscle and all of Europe trembles at its utter lack of defense. Putic could roll right up to the English channel, destroying the EU if it wasn't for the backing of the US forces. Maybe we here in America should turn our backs on the hateful and ungrateful europeans finally. We should just sit back and watch Europe burn, the euro won't be worth squat then and the US dollar will soar. That translates into a gain in quality of life for every american by simply doing nothing. Europe can be looked at as a big wasteful sinkhole, where we pumped our wealth for a slap in the face.

This is very dangerous. Like putting missles in cuba even if they arent nuclear. We would snap. Good find man, Im preparing for the worst but hoping for the best.

Russia makes threats and suddenly America is who Europe is turning to...I thought we were a horrible nation? Funny what people do when in fear, and what people do when content. I don't think this will go Cold War as we have formally known; Russia is too poor, their equipment is mostly Cold War era...they are just jawboning. What I would be scared of is them selling equipment..it could be nuclear... to nations or organizations that hate us. Russia knows they can press buttons with the U.S. bogged down in 2 wars, if they give us a shove into Iran that gives them an ever greater chance to actually stand up to the U.S. military's bank roll in Cold War fashion.

A snippet from "50 Things They Don't Want You To Know"

Norway and the United States had launched a research rocket (for charting the Arctic) from a
Norwegian island. Following standard protocol, Norway had alerted Russia in advance about the
firing, but the message never made its way to the right people. In the middle of the night,
Russian radar detected what looked like a nuclear missile launched toward Moscow from a US
submarine.

The military immediately called President Boris Yeltsin, awakening him with the news that the
country appeared to be under attack (no word on whether Yeltsin had been in a vodka-induced
drunken slumber). The groggy president, for the first time ever, activated the infamous black
suitcase that contains the codes for launching nuclear missiles. He had just a few minutes to
decide whether to launch any or all of the country's 2,000 hair-trigger nukes at the US.
Luckily for the entire world, while Yeltsin was conferring with his highest advisors, Russia's
radar showed that the missile was headed out to sea. The red alert was cancelled. World War III
was averted.
What makes this even more nerve-racking is that Russia's early-warning systems are in much
worse shape now than they were in '95. The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
explains that while Russia needs 21 satellites to have a complete, fully-redundant network
capable of accurately detecting missile launches, as of 1999 they have only three. Heaven help us
if some Russian bureaucrat again forgets to tell the command and control center that a nearby
country is launching a research rocket.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




Messing around with Russia is a bad idea. Especially since it was the Russian government who were saving the people from the Georgian government.
