    Ukraine's GDP per capita is less half of Turkey's, which isn't allowed membership, bringing in the Ukraine when they are still extremely fragile is... very unlikely - especially if Putin makes it clear that he doesn't want them to. but your argument is still that Putin gets' everything he wants, and you count that as a loss for him? Good luck spinning that to anyone beyond those who are Desperate To Believe.
    Reality hasn't been kind to liberals.

    You also should understand that all missile defense systems can be beaten by building more missiles. ANY system can be overwhelmed.
    Brilliant, so let me guess-no defense should ever be attempted.

    A system that is designed to stop 1 or 2 rogue nukes might be prudent but not if it creates another nuclear arms race. We are years away from the tech even for that though

    So lets continue to appease. What could go wrong?

    The left is gutting the military (and its research), and even if it was built-you'd say it will start an arms race.

    Just kidding.

    (CNSNews.com) The past year witnessed bloodshed in Syria and Iraq, turmoil in Egypt, anarchy in Central Africa, threats by a nuclear-armed North Korea and Chinese military posturing, but as 2013 ends a global poll finds that the country seen as representing the greatest threat to peace today is ... the United States. - See more at: And The Country Posing The Greatest Threat to Peace as 2013 Ends is

    Was it your understanding that the shields in Poland and Czechoslovakia, which Obama cancelled, would start a nuclear arms race?

    Yeah, that's a real bi-partisan statement.

    It doesn't matter, thankfully they were cancelled.
