Obama Stabs Allies In The Back

Obama scrapping missile shield for Czech, Poland - Washington Times

The Obama administration on Thursday said it is scrapping its plans for a missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic that was intended to protect against the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran, but said it is doing so in order to deploy a more flexible system that it said is an "enhancement.

Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said in an interview that the new system, which will be announced later Thursday, is based on a determination that the Iranian threat is still limited to short- and medium-range missiles, instead of long-range missiles called intercontinental ballistic missiles, or ICBM's.

Somehow I think that this "enhancement" will make Vladimir Putin happier than our allies. It's the Obama way.
