from the Washington Free Beacon:

 

Two Russian strategic bombers conducted practice cruise missile attacks on the United States during a training mission last week that defense officials say appeared timed to the NATO summit in Wales.

The Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers were tracked flying a route across the northern Atlantic near Iceland, Greenland, and Canada’s northeast.

Analysis of the flight indicated the aircraft were conducting practice runs to a pre-determined “launch box”—an optimum point for firing nuclear-armed cruise missiles at U.S. targets, said defense officials familiar with intelligence reports.

Disclosure of the nuclear bombing practice comes as a Russian general last week called for Moscow to change its doctrine to include preemptive nuclear strikes on the United States and NATO.

Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Phillip are the two people attending the commemorations of the 70th anniversary of D-Day, along with the many veterans, who have “any clue” of the enormity, the gravity, of what actually occurred there 70 years ago. The other leaders, like Obama and Putin, should take a lesson from that “Great Generation”.

Well now I see on Drudge that Obama is sending loads of defensive missiles – plus two extra warships with missile defense capabilities – to the Middle East to help defend against the sort of attacks from Iran that Russia was going to help prevent.

Well golly gee whiz. Won’t people in DC express shock when Ahemdinijad says exactly the same things about missile defense in Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, and the Persian Gulf as the Russian leaders said about missile defense in Poland and the Czech Republic?

I’m sure Robert Gibbs will be jumping through hoops tomorrow to explain this inconsistency. Anything Bush did related to defense was just a horrible act because it “made them hate us more” and raised the threat of war. What happened to giving diplomacy a chance? He’s given Iran endless chances and they’ve laughed him off every time. Obama hasn’t even been willing to go the sanctions route seriously. How can he take this action without UN approval? A couple years ago that was called “cowboy diplomacy” wasn’t it?
