You know, haven’t we all missed the old days, when we’d get to hear daily about the inevitable threat to our very existence in the form of a nuke storm? Well, those Cold War days are coming back.
President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that tests of new Russian missiles were a response to the planned deployment of U.S. missile defense installations and other forces in Europe, suggesting Washington has triggered a new arms race.
In a clear reference to the United States, he harshly criticized “imperialism” in global affairs and warned that Russia will strengthen its military potential to maintain a global strategic balance.
“It wasn’t us who initiated a new round of arms race,” Putin said when asked about Russia’s missile tests at a news conference after talks in the Kremlin with Greek President Karolos Papoulias.
This is fantastic news for the PNAC death brigade, who are secretly enthralled at the chances the U.S. can reignite wars with Vietnam, Korea, Central America, Spain, Native Americans and England while one of their own remains at the helm.
