Putin praises Obama's missile defense decision

http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-missile-defense19-2009sep19,0,2726164.story

He calls dropping plans for missile shield installations 'very right and brave'
I know Russia has a very good reason for not wanting the missile defense in Poland.
Have people forgotten?
In August 1939 Stalin signed a non-aggression pact with Hitler in order to keep the aggressive Hitler away from Russia. The two dictatorships' mighty armies then attacked and occupied Poland from West and East and divided it between them.

Is Obama playing right into their hands?

  • Its a stupid move on his part. Russia knows he is weak as does the rest of the world. Like they say, you can take the man out of the KGB but you can't take the KGB out of the man.,

    _______
    LoL, First it is Mrs. I am married. Second I know my history, he was the 2nd president of Russia and is currently the prime minister. A prime minister is the most senior minister of cabinet in the executive branch of government in a parliamentary system. Putin submits to the President proposals on the structure and functions of the central institutions of the executive branch (e.g. ministries and federal agencies). He also represents the Government as an institution in foreign relations and inside the country.

    The 628-member parliament, termed the Federal Assembly, consists of two chambers, the 450-member State Duma (the lower house) and the 176-member Federation Council (the upper house).

  • Of course Putin does. He sees us as weak. We have apologized to everyone. Do you think Putin would? He's loving our new, gentle, kind president.

  • This was the dumbest move on BO's part. But, it just confirms what I've thought all along...that he's a Trojan Horse! Maybe when Russia launches missles at the US they'll hit the White House first....like BO's bedroom!  We could use one less dumbass in there!

  • There was never any need to site missiles so close to Russia's border, many people in those countries did not want them there and it was just another example of Geo Bush brinkmanship and misguidedly trying to pressure Russia. Obama's explanation is sensible, it makes good sense politically, strategically and also financially. We have to learn to work with Russia and not slip back into old cold war policies and practices. Russia is not a threat.
