Yeah how dare they want to have a base as close to the US as the US has to Russia. (read in a sarcastic tone)

The US didn't have a base that close, but the Turks did. They were even nice enough to let us store a bunch of our stuff there. Along with some people to keep it from getting rusty.

Aaaaaand they still DO have a base in Cuba; read up on the Lourdes facility. Now they havedecided to go back in...this will be interesting to watch.

How naive of you all to believe that international political actions are based on fairness. Projection of power, gents.

manicbranic - I guess I fall into the naive category but not for the reasons cited by you, but because of what LogicDude points out. I always a**umed that the Russians had an LP/OP of sorts in Cuba but I thought it was a clandestine operation.

Russian president Medvedev is making it clear that Russia wants to be a world power. His actions in Cuba and Ossetia clearly dictate his future course. What will BHO do? Give them money to go away?

BHO doesn't have the money to make them go away so I'm sure he'll just invite them in instead. I've never cared much for Vodka but I can handle it OK with V8 and h** sauce like a Bloody Mary.
