Meeting Medvedev Halfway by Patrick J. Buchanan 11/25/2008
|With these opening moves, how might Obama test the water for a better relationship with the Russia of Medvedev and Vladimir Putin?|
First, Obama should restate his campaign position that no anti-missile system will be deployed in Poland until fully tested.
Second, he should declare that, as this system is designed to defend against an Iranian ICBM with a nuclear warhead, it will not be deployed until Iran has tested an ICBM and an atomic device.
So long as the Iranian threat remains potential, not actual, there is no need to deploy a U.S. missile defense in Poland against it.
Third, he should invite Medvedev to Camp David to discuss what more they might do together to ensure that no such Iranian threat, to either nation, ever materializes. For if Iran does not test an ICBM or atomic device, what is the need for a missile defense in East Europe?
Fourth, invoking the principle of self-determination, Obama might propose a plebiscite in Georgia and Abkhazia to determine if these people wish to return to Tbilisi's rule.
The second bone of contention between us is prospective NATO membership for Georgia and Ukraine.
Renou came by and visited...
You know who said...Funny as always and did not even respond to the post.
Are you on drugs ?
Has the collapse of greed-driven Crapitalism sucked out your last remaining IQ points from your piggy-bank of intellectual reserve ?
What shrill fearorism you promote !
Iran has nukes like you have common sense, and they have as much of a probability of launching anything at anybody as your taxpayer money-pit of a "Start Wars" project has of shooting it down.
No wonder Crapitalism is dying on its expensively-shod feet if it has people like you propping up the crumbling ivory-colored clay walls.
Have a nice day, Ron.
Don't jump. Yet.
President Obama may make it better....
