NATO to Russia: Suck This

NATO has reversed course on Georgian membership, acting immediately.

Labour in Britain, is predictably enough aligning with the rest of the general leftist community in taking Russia’s side.

    Feh, we could look in Sweden maybe. But this is good stuff. A tactical victory for Russia which is turning into a operational and strategic victory for us. Combine this with the supposed agreement with Iraq that will see large scale land operations drawing down starting next year and suddenly that whole “the US is bogged down in Iraq” goes away. It also helps that the troops that will not be in Iraq are the exact ones that we would use in this region (one does not send an Armored Division to Afghanistan if one has any sense).

  3. Yep. Wonder if Ukraine would like to urm…. host a division?

    Most of our current vehicles were designed and optimized to work in the Eastern and Western European theaters, so certainly it would be a much better fit for existing technology than the current efforts to shoehorn them into desert/rocky terrain theaters. From the work I’m doing here, the desert terrain is doing a real nasty job on the effective lifetime of this equipment, and maintenance is proving to be the undoing of several high tech items, from ground vehicles to helicopters.

  5. Gotta love the Condi move though… pushed through the Missile Shield while Russia is busy trying to not look evil.

    Had a discussion with a British economist. We discussed the concept that Poland was overreacting and acting irresponsibly by taking the shield. After all, it would be completely irrational for Russia to invade Poland when trade and honest diplomacy would be so much more effective…

    Oh yeah. Russia.

    We laughed and finished our beers. Think NATO willget some Black Sea bases?
