Russia Ups The Missile Ante

Poland and the Baltic states are alarmed by a sudden buildup of nuclear-capable, short range, high-speed missiles in Russia’s Western Military District- which abuts their countries.

Russian media have confirmed the move-said by Russians to be an attempt to intimidate its neighbors from hosting US-backed anti-missile defenses.

Confirmation has been received the missiles are the 40 ton Iskander M series,which have a range of about 250 miles, and which are nuclear-capable.

It seems clear the Russians want nothing to interfere with any future attack upon its European neighbors, and equally clear the Cold War never really ended.
