Double-Standards Yet Again

The Cuban Missile crisis started when the Soviets put nuclear weapons in Cuba, and the US objected because the missiles were so close to our shores.

We were dangerously close to a confrontation because even as the Soviets wanted to withdraw the missiles the Cubans were adamant about keeping them.

Now the US will build a missile base in Poland, and Russia has been objecting to this proposal for really the same reasons. We say that the base will protect the region (Israel in other words) from rogue states like Iran (which has not attacked a country without provocation in modern history), but the Russians feel like the Americans did some 40 years ago.

Why is this idiot and the idiots around him so willing to re-start the Cold War?

In a bitter ironic twist, when Russia invaded Georgia earlier this week, Bush made some public comments to the effect of : Russia has invaded a sovereign nation, and needs to withdraw its troops immediately !

Imagine that coming from Bush who in 2003 invaded a sovereign nation and insisted we stay more than one week !
