New Arms Race: Don't blame Putin, blame Bush and Cheney


For those who say that we only have another year and a half of George Bush and why waste the energy and divisiveness in the country to start impeachment hearings, I say look at the dangers out there and how Bush responds. Today Russian President Putin warned the US and EU allies they are playing with fire when they consider installation of Missiles in former Soviet Block countries so close to Russia.

I don't blame President Putin. How did we feel when the then Soviet Union was installing Ballistic Missiles right next door in Cuba? This "strategy" from the same President Bush who said, "I can see into the very soul of President Putin". Well Mr. President you misjudged and misread Mr. Putin, you squandered and wasted that relationship, as well. This is reminiscent of the time when the whole world was with us after 9/11 and this President squandered that too and invaded Iraq. Can't you see we need to put this President and Vice President on defense, as when they are on offense they offend everyone!

The Bush administration has bumbled this one quite badly, it seems. With Russia on the rise, we need to be extremely careful how we are dealing with them.

Please look into the PNAC (wikipedia). It will tell you all you need to know who and why we are building up arms across Europe.

Thanks for another voice.

Yes I hear it is defensive missile system. But that means that we see a threat from Russia or would be working with them regarding other threats. In any event we don't seem to be calming any fears they have.

I could not agree more that the American public would be wise to demand impeachment proceedings if this nation is to salvage any bit of goodwill and trust that remains in the rest of the world. But sadly, I am losing hope that this will occur.

Americans love our SUVs, stock-options, pension plans and energy consumption way too much to rock the boat. We give lip service to disapproving of Bush/Cheney but are not willing to risk rattling our fragile economy. After all, what would impeachment do to the stock market? Oil prices? Just think, televised impeachment hearings might interrupt day-time television schedules. And just think, who might be called to testify about war profiteering.

Bush/Cheney et al is supported by multinational corporations whose sense of nationalism exists as long as they have a subsidiary in a nation, they are turning profits and their shareholders are happy.

The "good relationship" the Bush administration once had with Putin as well as the goodwill the world felt for the US after 9/11 wasn't squandered. It was sold to the highest bidder.
