Drudge Report headlined it's web page today with the words "Showdown: Russia Vows Shield Response Beyond Diplomacy." You can click on the title to read the full article, but in short, the Russian rhetoric is flying and at "cold war" levels. To say that the Polish people have a dislike and distrust for the Russian government is an understatement. The recent events in Georgia and the new missile shield arrangement that the US made with Poland has only added to the tension. Russia is now threatening nuclear response. Is there a good chance that it's only rhetoric at this point? Yes, but having been subjected to tyranny for so many years, the Polish now take nothing for granted.
