Interesting idea. Could the present administration be intentionally antagonizing Russia in order to create a new (and much easier to understand) threat? Republicans always poll higher on issues of security than Democrats. Could this be a way to make McCain look like a better choice? Is the Bush administration capable of executing a plan that elegant and evil? Or am I giving them too much credit?

Have you been paying attention? Seriously?? The Bush administration concocted a Terror Alert System, which has only been used during periods immediately preceding an election. Homeland Security Advisory System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. And let's not even get into the whole Iraq issue...

I agree with you that everything you've quoted is straight out of Goebbel's playbook, but you can't seriously put that on the same level as openly antagonizing Russia. Not even in the same universe. The threats posed by Al Qaeda (real) or Iraq (faked) don't even register on the same scale as the threat that Russia presents, especially a Russia that is eager to re-establish itself as a dominant world force.

Cold War is good for business, I doubt the Bush administration cares about much else. And until something actually happens, it's all just a bunch of chit chat. I'll definitely place it in the same universe as an unprovoked invasion/occupation of a sovereign nation, that's just me.

Norway: Russia to cut all military ties with NATO - Yahoo! News

1 hour, 6 minutes ago

OSLO, Norway - Norway's Defense Ministry says Russia has informed it that it plans to cut all military ties with NATO.


Ministry spokeswoman Heidi Langvik-Hansen says the country's embassy received a telephone call from Russia's Defense Ministry on Wednesday, saying Moscow plans "to freeze all military cooperation with NATO and allied countries."

Norway was told in the telephone call a written note about this would be sent out shortly.

Russian officials were not immediately available to confirm the information and officials at NATO headquarters said they have not been informed of any such moves.

NATO foreign ministers Tuesday suspended formal contacts with Russia as punishment for sending troops into Georgia.
is this really a surprise to you? hmm

Aw, c'mon. It's not like Putin said he saw into Bush's soul by looking into his eyes or anything. You wanna talk batshit crazy, I gotta go with the guy who takes instructions from invisible fairies in the sky...
