Ah, the war of words! NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen used wonderful words prior to the illegal war in Iraq. He said that he didn't think that Saddam had WMD. He KNEW Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. Couldn't quite see where the force was used in Crimea. It seemed that the people wanted to be a part of Russia once more. Isn't that what a democracy is? Perhaps in the US dictionary that word has a different meaning? As to the ballistic missile shield alongside Russia's border, how threatening is that? Russia wanted to do away with the need for visas between Europe and Russia. It is Europe that has always stood in the way of that. NATO stop thinking of Russia as your enemy. It is where all the problems are starting.
