    Default Russia may aim nukes at Europe

    RUSSIA is considering aiming nuclear weapons at western Europe for the first time since the end of the Cold War, according to senior defense sources in Moscow.

    This is, of course, what the US Government wants. They yearn for a return to the days when fear of the "Commie Red Menace Evil Empire" reduced the American sheeple to a quivering mass of cowering slaves willing to do and pay anything for the imagined safety of the next new nuclear thingamajig that costs trillions to make, trillions to keep, and eventually corrodes into junk sitting in its silo somewhere.

    Careful, your reactionary anti-Americanism might produce so much excited drool that you'll short-circuit your keyboard.

    This missile idea is not smart and I wish the Bush Administration would drop it. No-one in Europe is under realistic threat from Iran, and the countries keen to host these sites are out of any conceivable range that Tehran possesses.

    As Robert Fisk pointed out a few years ago, America has constructed a significant number of air bases in central Asia, presumably to increase a military presence in the one area of the world where Russia and China share a back yard.

    They never stopped aiming them at Europe
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    But not of Europe, to split hairs.

    and their disastrous bollicking about on the stock exchange gambing with oil futures and driving the prices sky high will also ensure the rest of us will be footing the bill for it

    It takes minutes to load a new route into an ICBM guidance system. They never stopped pointing them at us as NATO troops are in Europe.

    I think in this instance it's the fact that they would be targetting Eastern European cities for the first time.
