The Obama administration is scrapping plans to install missile defense in Poland and the Czech Republic:
The United States is poised to dump a critical missile-defense agreement with two of its most dependable NATO allies. The Polish daily Gazeta Wyborcza reported yesterday that the Obama administration is going to scrap the “third site” anti-missile system scheduled to be deployed in Poland and the Czech Republic. Missile interceptors in Poland and a radar station in the Czech Republic were scheduled to be deployed by 2013. Now the plan appears to have been shot down.
Don’t forget, European missile defense was not just a Bush pledge (abrogating your predecessor’s promises would be bad enough), but an Obama pledge as well. Once again, the world is learning clearly that the United States cannot be trusted, and it will treat its enemies better than its friends.
