    Announcing what would be "targeted" is not a threat of war whatsoever. Rather, it was just announcing the obvious. If Denmark becomes part of NATO then it becomes part of responsive targeting. So what? No surprise. No threat. Just obvious reality.

    But Travis was right. Obama Was wrong, and that stupid " reset " button was just on of many of his Foreign Policy blunders.

    Putin is not the Czar of Russia and if he ordered a nuclear attack the result would, instead, be his assassination (likely presented publicly as his having a heart attack.) The structure of the Russian military is not like that of the USA. It is far more independent of the civil government.

    Putin is dangerous in terms of regional expansion goals and potentially causing troubles in various countries. But he is not a threat of nuclear war. He does not have the power to unilaterally order a nuclear strike.

    Denmark is already a NATO member, the Russians said they will use nukes if Denmark joins the NATO missile defense shield.

    we wouldn't survive a nuclear war with Russia. luckily, it's not going to happen. even the hawks in congress aren't that stupid. well, most of them, anyway. McCain wants war with everyone.

    You want to get into how many things all presidents were wrong about? How about we start with how many things Mr. Bush was wrong about. And Bush's response to Putin taking Georgia.

    In dealing with Russia the fact is we don't have many options. No president does/did.

    Russia threatens Denmark with nuclear weapons if it tries to join Nato defence shield - Europe - World - The Independent

    Putin knows damn well what a nuclear attack on a NATO member means, this is the last straw, this man Adolf Putler needs to be stopped by any means necessary, it is incumbent on any person in the world capable of doing so to assassinate this insane genocidal monster.
    Jeez...what an over-hyped story.

    The Russian ambassador to Denmark said:

    'Mikhail Vanin told the told Jyllands-Posten newspaper: “I do not think that the Danes fully understand the consequences if Denmark joins the US-led missile defence shield. If that happens, Danish warships become targets for Russian nuclear missiles.”'


    Well duh.

    It means that some of Russia's nuclear missiles will now be targeted - IN WARTIME - to attack Danish ships that are part of the defense shield. Just as other non-Danish ships/radars weapon systems that are currently part of the defense shield are probably already targeted.
    Just like America has targeted various Russian targets during wartime.

    SO WHAT?
