Madness Of Bush And McCain Threatens World Peace!

Europe and Russia were working together on many issues and the old animosity between Russians and Americans had apparently been put to rest when suddenly everything has turned upside down. Bush deliberately provoked strong Russian reaction by pushing for missile bases to be constructed in Poland using the lame excuse they were needed to counter possible attacks by “rogue states” like North Korea and Iran. Hogwash. What pretext would lead Iran to send missiles to attack Europe knowing that France and Great Britain have nuclear armed submarines? Russia offered to have the missile bases built on their soil but Bush turned them down. The entire current hysteria originates in mistaken foreign policy decisions by George Bush. He deliberately provoked Russia. He armed the Georgian army and apparently gave President Saakashvili the impression his invasion would be supported by the United States.

General Anatoly Nogovitsyn, Russia’s deputy chief of staff, reflected Russia’s fury at the missile bases by warning Poland that it might be punished. “Poland, by deploying(the missile system) is exposing itself to a strike–100%.” He made plain Russia’s military defense system was predicated on attacking a nation that confronted it with missiles. Secretary of State Condi Rice is trying her best to calm down the Georgians and is avoiding making any provocative statements.

John McCain is using the Georgia invasion to hype his so-called foreign policy experience. However, the only thing he is demonstrating is his hyper active personality which is quick to make threats and has no grasp about diplomacy and calmness. He has called for the expulsion of Russia from the G-8 group. Exactly, how this would help lessen tension is still to be explained by the so-called foreign policy “expert.”

Hopefully, this incident should make any supporter of Hillary Clinton who now is considering voting for anti-female rights John McCain to think twice. John McCain is a loose cannon who makes Bush come across as being reasonable.

President Medvedev Pledges Missile Defense

President Dimitry Medvedev made his first trip to inspect missile defense systems in his nation, a visit that underscored the strategic role of nuclear arms in the country’s assertive world policy. The Russian government has been concerned over the Bush plan to establish missile bases in Pland and the Czech Republic which supposedly are to protect Europe from missiles coming from North Korea or Iran. Medvedev told the soldiers at the base: “It is obvious that our task in the next few years is to ensure strategic missile forces get all the ncessary funds to be ready to withstand the existing threats.” Newly installed Prime Minister Putin had pledged a few days ago to raise salaries of members of the nuclear and air defense forces.

Medvedev was shown new versions of missiles which Colonel General Nikolai Solovtsov, commander of missile forces said “is a response to all security threats to Russia, including missile defense.” The Russian sudden concern for missile defense is obviously an outgrowth of the Bush blunder in creating a problem where none existed. The North Koreans are cooperating with the United States and there is no reason why Iran would ever seek to send missiles headed for Europe knowing full well such an act would result in their nation being devastated by missiles from France and Great Britain.

Czech Republic Population Protests US Missile Base

The government of the Czech Republic has been a strong supporter of President Bush’s proposal to build a missile base in their nation, but there apparently is widespread opposition to the move within the general population. Last week, an estimated 2,000 people gathered at the Brdy military grounds where the base will be built waving banners protesting the move. They marched to the nearby town of Misov where its mayor, Pavel Hruby, denounced the construction of the base and, together with other speakers, raised issues about the sovereignty of their nation. The people of the Czech Republic spent decades during which time foreign troops were on their soil, the new base will once again allow foreign troops to be present within their midst.

Many Czech Republic lawmakers would like a referendum on construction of the missile base because they believe a majority of the nation opposes the move.
