Norway are claiming they received a call from Russia saying they were going to cut off military support to NATO. However this hasn't been made official, it's interesting to see what's going to come next.

In other news, Polland and the US have made a deal and missile defense systems have been installed in Polland, much to Russia's dismay.


Honestly, I've never seen the problem with missile defense systems.

WEll the missile defence thing is a shiled wht iot does is that if a long range nuclear missile was fired from say Iran this shield would pick it up and "intercept" the missile now wether intercept means firing another missile to knock the original from the sky or it uses electro jamming to screw up the GPA directional chips I don't know. However Russia keeps saying the shield is pointed at them and they belive missiles will rain from the sky because of this and they have threeatend possible military actions "including nuclear strikes" on Poland.

They are upping the ante and I am wondering right now if ther western leaders and probably NATO are looking at troop numbers etc in case it comes to military action against Russia I am not saying that a war is imminent but I think we are going to have to cover all bases here, also before you go to bed tonight ask yourself which Russian city do you think the Wests nukes are pointed at tonight, just in case

Who cares where the shield's pointing, you know? It's just for protection, so it sounds like something everyone should have.

Taiwan's purchased one from US, to China's dismay. I like the idea of having it, even though I don't like the idea of going to war at all.



This thing's really escalating though. Russia aren't going to back down any time soon, I feel, and as it stands I don't know the appropriate response... because it's going to be lose-lose regardless.

I don't know too many people who actually WANT to go to war. So, I'm with you, Grant. It's nice to know that we all have ways to protect ourselves... but damn, I don't want to HAVE to.




I don't think that we will see Russia back down. They want to show that they are capable to taking over if needed. If they backed down, I think that their mind set is that they are weak.

And you're right, Grant... regardless, it's going to be lose-lose. No one truly "wins" in a war. People die.
