    Sorry but Bush isn't President anymore, and hasn't been President for some time now.

    And Bush wasn't the one who thought of that ridiculous reset button iniative.

    Romney WAS right all along.

    You people get so irritated when those on the Right expose Obama's failures. Here's a thought.

    Spend a whole 10 minutes vetting your'e President next time before pulling the lever. Dont be so damn susceptible to empty platitudes and bumper sticker slogans.

    Interesting that Russia is telling the world that use of conventional weapons is not an option if a war starts.

If you want to intimidate someone, your threat has to be something he's likely to believe. Denmark doesn't have any ships large enough to justify wasting even the smallest nuclear weapon on. The most important thing, when these threats come along, is to make very clear that they do not work.
    I'm pretty sure Russia can afford to 'waste' quite a number of its considerable arsenal of nuclear weapons on naval targets smaller than carriers. Its not like they don't have plenty to spare after all

    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.
    IIRC, Denmark has a very small military. Hopefully this sabre rattling inspires them to become part of the Nato missile shield, as a way to protect it from an aggressive Russia. Denmark is already a NATO member, and it also has territory in the Faroe islands and Greenland-both prime locations to interefere with Russia in the arctic.

    But if you don't like who is the POTUS, there's the door.
