I Feel Safer Already

U.S. Changes Course on Eastern European Nuclear-Missile Shield

The White House is scrapping a Bush-era plan for an Eastern European missile-defense shield, saying a redesigned defensive system would be cheaper, quicker and more effective against the threat from Iranian missiles.

This is probably more about appeasing the Russians than about safety and security from Iranian missiles. What an appropriate date.
President Obama celebrates the 70th anniversary of the fruition of the famous non-aggression pact … the Sept. 17, 1939 Soviet invasion of Poland* … with a big present for Stalin wannabe Vladimir Putin.

It's also Constitution Day, a propos of nothing.
This is a much better deal for the neo-Stalinists than the Molo-’Trop was. Cutting deals with Hitler was a predictably dodgy game, destined to end badly … as any fool could see given what Hitler was doing with the Munich Agreement. So the Obama-Putin Iranian Nuclear Disarmament/Eastern European Betrayal Pact is more like if Stalin had cut a deal with Chamberlain on, say, Sept. 2, 1939, to help contain Hitler. Or maybe like Hitler cutting a deal with Chamberlain to keep Mussolini in line.

But we don't really need this since Vice President Joe Biden assures us Iran isn't a threat.

I feel so much better, don't you?

UPDATE: I feel even safer.AP NewsBreak: Nuke agency says Iran can make bomb.
