Obama Defends Decision to Shelve European Missile Shield - Political News - FOXNews.com
So Obama decided to ditch the clusterfuck moneysink known as the missile defense shield. Good, right? I mean, the thing never even worked in laboratory tests, and even if it worked 100% of the time on tests, any minor variation to a target missile's design would render it useless and drained something like $50 billion. It never even had a CHANCE of working. It was a stupid idea when it was called Star Wars, and it was a stupid idea when it was called the Strategic Defense Initiative. Obama was right to cut it.
But the Republicans are pissed because it seems Obama is caving to the Russians. Really? The goddamn Russians? Any registered Republicans out there, go to your next party meeting and demand that your party leadership read some recent world history. The Cold War is over - has been for a couple decades now. What really scares me is that there seems to be a group within American politics that play at the national level that wish the Cold War never ended.
