On the heals of President Vladimir Putin's announcement of the possibility of "a new cold war" comes this bold warning by Russian General Nikolai Solovtsov to Poland and the Czech Republic.
"If the governments of Poland and the Czech Republic take such a step ... the Strategic Missile Forces will be capable of targeting these facilities if a relevant decision is made," Solovtsov told reporters in Moscow, asserting the U.S. plan could upset strategic balance of power in the region.
So, has the United States become the World's antagonist? Or do we just happen to be on every Nation's "Bad Guy" list?
Are the Russians to be taken seriously? Or is this an idle threat offered by a pompous Military leader?
