Russia says its response to the further development of a U.S. missile shield in Poland will go beyond diplomacy.
Russia's Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying the U.S. missile shield plans are clearly aimed at weakening Russia.
Again, the proudly, geopolitically clueless are in control of US foreign policy, and there are no grown-ups in the room.
Just as Georgia hideously mis-judged Russia's ferocious fear of invasion, so has the white house just demonstrated a colossal failure of imagination by believing that Russia would not respond to the development of a US missle shield in Poland.
The words "beyond diplomacy" may well translate into a military attack against Poland. This agreement states clearly that the US will come to the aid of Poland militarily if Poland is attacked.
