MOSCOW -- Russian President Dmitry Medvedev issued a chilly reception to the incoming U.S. administration, threatening to station missiles deep inside Europe and lambasting the U.S. for "selfish" foreign-policy and economic blunders.

his first international test..biden said it wouldn’t be long in coming..
First test coming for the new guy.
I would not like to be an American ally in Eastern Europe after January. Poor b*stards.
What test? A taste test for vodka? My guess is that our enemies are going to give BO a pass so all his followers can continue to blame Bush/Cheney for all the evil in the world.
How much of our security will Zero give away to stay in the good graces of tyrants like Medvedev?
Quick, someone find a cheap deck chair and time how fast it takes to fold it.
Something tells me Obammuah will best you time.
Unless pres. Bush can do something I think they probably timed this ‘signal’ about right. For them.
Too bad we have an incoming that doesn’t believe that the US is nobody’s *itch. We should probably call him ‘bendover Barry’.
I’m sure Obama thinks the fault is with the US, and he will comply with Russian wishes fully. That should diffuse things until the Russians want more, and Obama gives them more. People of Europe should be very afraid. When something happens, the US won’t be there to help.
The Europeans deserve everything they’ve got coming to them. I should know, I’m from there. They hated Bush, actually they’ve hated all of America for decades, and they were all rooting for Obama, so now they have got him. Eat it, Europe. You got what you wished for.
Don’t worry, “this guy’s got a spine of steel”. LOL
Golly Gee, Biden was so perceptive....
I feel so comfortable knowing Obama will be at the helm come January 20. /sarc
That level of schadenfreude will prove very costly to the rest of us.
Well, Mr. Obama you have just been called out. How will you respond?
Spine of steel and feet of clay!
What will happen when Iran tests a nuclear weapon next February, how will Obama react? Diplomacy and weak UN sanctions have done nothing to date to stop the coming crisis, and the Europeans have no stomach to forcefully (very tough sanctions or the threat of force) confront Tehran. The One would probably claim that Tehran has assured him that they have no intention of attacking Israel or ever using these weapons for offensive purposes. I’m sure the mullahs will relay that the weapons are for defensive purposes only. Next I’m sure the messiah will urge more useless diplomacy in order to pressure Tehran into giving up it’s keys to the nuclear club, something I highly doubt the mullahs would ever do. After Iran tells Obama to stick it, you can bet that Syria, Egypt, Iraq and Saudi Arabia will institute or greatly accelerate their own research and development of nuclear weapons. Something they would never consider if we had consensus here at home and abroad to do what needs to be done.
I fully expect to surrender too/attempt to bribe Russia...
