Voice of the White House

Washington, D.C.: The US is now trying to get at Russia by threatening to put heavy military hardware in neighboring Baltic states. Putin has, rightly, taken this as a direct threat to Russian security and has threatened to beef up Russian ICBM development in retaliation. Also, the US has been making greedy gestures to the newly ice-free Arctic regions, lusting after the oil reserves there as well as wishing to take control of the potentially valuable trade routes. Like the loud sanctions Obama fastened on Russia after the Crimean fiasco, these plans will achieve nothing but future trouble. And Greece refuses to repay EU loans and claims that it will leave the EU. No doubt, given Grecian bankruptcy and bad fiscal policies, the EU will celebrate. This is like having your nasty mother-in-law threaten to never visit you again!
