Not long ago, Joe Biden predicted that within six months of taking office, President Obama would face a major foreign-policy test. It looks as if the Russians have decided to begin the testing earlier than that.
Bob Foresman, deputy chairman of Renaissance Capital, Russia's biggest investment bank, had said that Russia will be "less assertive'' in international affairs following an Obama victory. "The whole world'' wanted Obama to win, he said. "Relations will have to soften.''
With Wednesday's announcement from Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that his country will deploy short-range Iskander missiles in the Kaliningrad region bordering Poland and Lithuania, Mr. Foresman's view turns out to be naive.
Medvedev is about to "roll" the messiah.
Referring to the situation in Georgia, Medvedev said,
"We will not back down in the Caucasus."
Should Obama give in to the Russians (which he will), it will only embolden our enemies through out the world.
More problems to come from Iraq, Iran and the Middle East;
More terrorist attacks in Philippines.
These international crises will make it harder for Obama to achieve his Socialist agenda in the U.S. and his kool aid drinking zombies will abandon him before the mid term elections in 2010.
