U.S. & Poland Agree to Anti-Missile Defense

U.S. officials, of course, insist that this agreement to place a ballistic missile defense system in Poland isn't intended to antagonize Russia. But given Russia's aggression and belligerence in Georgian territories of South Ossetia and Abkhazia there can be little doubt those events sped up negotiations between the U.S. and Poland which had been languishing for the last year and a half.

Well, we got the Russians attention. General Anatoly Nogovitsyn believes such a system is aimed at Russia and states this agreement "cannot go unpunished" and that Poland "was exposing itself to a strike - 100 per cent."

If Russia decides to invade Poland it's WWIII. And unlike the first two World Wars, we do not have the luxury to wait.
