Obama Offers to Scrap Missile Shield If Russia Cooperates on Iran

Obama Offers to Scrap Missile Shield If Russia Cooperates on Iran

FOX news

Obama offered to consider scrapping plans for a missile defense shield in Europe if Russia helps rein in Iran's nuclear program, the Russian newspaper Kommersant reported.

Obama inherited plans to build the system in Poland and the Czech Republic from the Bush administration, but the new administration has equivocated over the project. Though the plans were put in place to deter nations like Iran and North Korea from launching attacks and developing nuclear weapons, Russia has interpreted the planned installation as a threat.

Wild Thing's comment.......

This is called absolute defeatism. Obama wants to scrap a magnificent missile shield system and begs Russia to help us deal with the Iranian terrorist regime.

Keep the missile shield and destroy the Iranian regime nuclear facilities. That is what a true leader does. But Obama is not a leader.

Every day I feel sicker and sicker about this unspeakable occupier of the White House. Hussein sure is setting us up to be attacked. His actions scream weakness in defending our interests while destroying us from within, but of course since his parents and teachers were Communists.

What makes this schmuck believe he can trust Putin ? He is bargaining from a position of weakness, the Russians will demand more and more and he will give it to them and then what.

Iran will have their Nuclear bomb and we won't have a defense shield. Obama is hell bent to destroy the United States.

Obama must thing foreign affairs is like his party days when you came across a group of guys you didn't agree with. All you did was smoke a few joints and hit a few lines and everything was cool.

As Forrest Gump (who probably has more brains than Obama) says, "Stupid is as stupid does." Even Forrest's friend Bubba had more brains than Obama! You can't trust Putin--end of story. We take down our defenses, guess what? They have us right where they want us. Has he learned nothing from the past? Kruschev, Breshnyv, Stalin, Lenin--any of those dictators ring a bell? He obviously did not pay attention in Modern History class, did he? You can't trust the old school soviets. He's a moronic village idiot.

Obama just pulled the rug out from under Poland and the Czech Republic. They stood up to Russia in allowing America to put the missle shield on their soil. We have just given Putin the green light to rebuild the old USSR.

Bush looked into Putin's eyes and saw his soul and said I see a friend. Obama looked into Putin's eyes and saw - himself!!!!

Obama's 'Reboot relations with Russia' theme.

The Bolsheviks, from the Russian word "bolshinstvo" (majority) are in power and like their predecessor are bent on destroying the nation, forming it into a copy of the former Soviet Union. Dismantling our ties with our staunchest ally in the middle East will spell doom not only there but all across the sphere, this action gives the enemies of freedom the green light to expand their influence and their reign of terror. Hell guys we'll all be safe, just head to the nearest GFZ college or university campus, embrace Ward Churchill, Saul Alinsky and William Ayres and you'll be safe.

BobF., great way to put it. That sure is how he is treating all of this.

Lynn, LOL good one, love the Forrest Gump referrence too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 3, 2009 06:00 PM

Tom, he sure did and it really ticks me off. I am angry that he is thinking of doing this and to treat those countries Poland and the Czech Republic so badly. He did not even tell them ahead of time. Of course they know now, but still that is horrible to do that as a leader or as anyone at any level.

Jack, that was good!!!!!"Obama looked into Putin's eyes and saw - himself!!!!"
