Bush Jets to Europe to Plan Cold War: First Blood Part II
We keep trying to build a big useless threatening mysterious missile defense system in Eastern Europe, and our bestest ally ever Vladimir Putin doesn't seem to care for it. So he recently said he was going to point all of Russia's decaying, decrepit nuclear missiles back at Europe.
Asked whether the American plan to build a missile defense shield in Eastern Europe would force Moscow to direct its own missiles against cities or American military targets in Europe, Mr. Putin replied, "Naturally, yes," according to the newspaper.
So today Bush hopped on a plane to the Czech Republic, where he will pretend to have any idea what to do about this. Bush and his lady friend German Chancellor Angela Merkel will trade impromptu massages while deciding whether we should give up on that whole Kosovo thing, stop the missile shield, or just let Vlad nuke a couple cities until he gets it out of his system.
Once again Americans are reminded that, due primarily to distance from the crazies, they live in the greatest country in the world, except Alaska which is kinda screwed in this deal.
