Poles: Betrayal! The U.S. sold us to Russia and stabbed us in the back!


Here is Drudge's screenshot of the Polish tabloid Fakt's front page as the paper minced no words in describing the paper's reaction to President Obama's decision to scrap the missile defense sheild says the AP. Betrayal! The U.S. sold us to Russia and stabbed us in the back! screamed the headline. Given the recent Russian adventure into Georgia and a cut-off of natural gas to the Ukraine last winter the East Europeans have reason to be wary of a resurgent, newly aggressive Russia left unchecked by a weak U.S. committment to security in the region.

The Czechs were equally nervous about abandonment by an Obama administration in the face of a resurgent Russia. The AP quotes Czech newspaper Hospodarske Novine, an ally we rely on has betrayed us, and exchanged us for its own, better relations with Russia, of which we are rightly afraid.





Ask Eastern Europeans how that change is working out for them.
