NATO: [Looking eastwards] Um, actually, missile defense sounds like a dandy notion.
Must be a code phrase, or something.

How else to explain this departure from Accepted Reality?
BUCHAREST (Reuters) - NATO leaders meeting in Bucharest...
I'm sorry, but there are times, even today, where I just have to stop for a second and recognize the implications of phrases like that. The monster of my childhood is dead. We killed it. And we broke it first, before we killed it.
Right. Moving on:
NATO leaders meeting in Bucharest were set to endorse a planned U.S. missile shield for Europe on Thursday, a senior U.S. official told reporters.
The final summit statement would "recognize the substantive contribution to the protection of the allies" from the missile defense system to be deployed in the Czech Republic and Poland, the official told reporters.
Why them, by the way? Because the Czechs and the Poles know that, no matter what happens, we are never, ever, ever going to install a Governor-General in either Prague or Warsaw. This makes us a refreshing change of pace, in their point of view, from mostly every other hegemon in history - not to mention most of their neighbors.
Why, of course - like Hot Air - I'm going to remind people of Senator Obama's oopsie along these lines:
After all, it's not my fault that the Democrats are seriously considering nominating a natsec illiterate for the Presidency.
PS: Anyone feel like betting that Obama won't be equally regretting the second half of that video before too much longer, too?
