The West should concentrate on Pakistan/Afghanistan/Iran/Iraq/Syria/North Korea and leave this one alone.
also , Russia should provide Al Qaida with advanced weapons , so that the Islamic resistance forces decimate and destroy the evil genocidal imperialist american forces in Iraq
At least 114 helicopters and 20 fixed-wing aircraft have been lost in Iraq since the 2003 invasion. At least 41 of the crashes have been attributed to hostile fire such as anti-aircraft artillery and surface-to-air missiles. In March 2007, Brig. Gen. Stephen Mundt said that 130 helicopters had been lost in both Iraq and Afghanistan, about a third to hostile fire, and he was concerned that they were not being replaced fast enough.
NATO warships and several AEGIS equipped ships would make the Georgian effort seem insignificant in companion. And in case you have not noticed look at how many NATO countries and pro Western nations border the Black Sea. USAFE and CENTCOM air units can be quickly deployed to the region

If Russia dosent like being bottled in then maybe they should beep off and pull out of Georgia and leave the Polish, Ukrainians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Moldovans, Belarusians, etc alone to run their own countries without Russian interference.
Poland is an sovereign nation, if they want a US missile defense system then thats their business not Russia's.
I find it so funny, Russia interferes in a nation's affairs and its ok but yet the US tries to defend another nation from Russia and suddenly its all "evil imperialist Americans" blah blah blah from the usual wackos.
