After all the talking, the U.S. has taken action. The U.S and Poland hurried to finalize the missile shield in Poland, with some added protection.
Apparently not only do they get a missile shield, but American soldiers to man it for now, and a faster-than-NATO response if attacked. Whoa. Think about the parallels to 1939 on that one.
That'll learn ya.
I like the part about Russia's reaction - it'll worsen Russo-American relations. Right. Because the whole attack-into-a-sovereign-democratic-country-thing was a sign of affection.
