As soon as Barack Obama took the reins in 2009, he killed the Missile Defense Shield in Eastern Europe, which was only meant to protect the region from a Russian invasion.
It was part of the Russian reset. Hillary didn’t even get the button right. She cackled it off as she always does.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday warned Romania and Poland they could find themselves in the sights of Russian rockets because they are hosting elements of a U.S. missile shield that Moscow considers a threat to its security.
The U.S. military — which says the shield is needed to protect from Iran, not threaten Russia — switched on the Romanian part of the shield. Work is going ahead on another part of the shield, in Poland.
“If yesterday in those areas of Romania people simply did not know what it means to be in the cross-hairs, then today we will be forced to carry out certain measures to ensure our security,” Putin told a joint news conference in Athens with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.
“It will be the same case with Poland,” he said.
“We won’t take any action until we see rockets in areas that neighbor us,” he said.
He’s frustrated that “We’ve been repeating like a mantra that we will be forced to respond… Nobody wants to hear us. Nobody wants to conduct negotiations with us.”
He won’t discuss the country he’s already annexed.
“As far as Crimea is concerned, we consider this question is closed forever,” Putin said. “Russia will not conduct any discussions with anyone on this subject.”
In 2014, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko told the European Commission that Putin privately threatened to invade Poland, Romania, and the Baltic States.
Should that happen, Obama will sanction some Oligarchs.
Our relationship with Poland, the Czech Republic, the Baltic States, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Israel and so on, are worthless. We won’t do a thing to help any of them.
