You see, the USA is sick. The country has to produce weapons that are not needed. Without these production lines, the US economy would crash. So a lot of very smart people got together and decided to push (like crack cocaine is pushed) a new weapons system on certain target States in Europe.
But the USA is only doing this because they love Europe and they want to protect Europe from those bad guys in Syria, Iran and yes, in Russia. Or so they would like for you to think.
A book I recently read comes to mind.....
Confessions of an Economic Hitman : How the U.S. Uses Globalization to Cheat Poor Countries Out of Trillions - by John Perkins
...and this is where Mr. Perkins' book comes in handy ; the USA is planting a trap for Poland and the Czech Republic. They can lend the weapons systems and set up a debt plan. That way, the USA can count on having support from these two in the UN. And if and when Europe decides to join Vlad Putin in saying "enough is enough"....these two countries can be the junkyard Dogs that rush up to bite us in the ass. Or so. Hell, the way Merkel and Chirac have been acting lately, it wouldn't surprise me if they came right out and begged for "US Protective Systems"....the only problem with that is - we the people. We don't want it and they know it. They can't come straight out and say "yes" as the Poles and the Czechs have done.
So how do you tell a poor, unemployed young father of 5 children to oppose a US Radar station in his backyard when he's being led to believe he'll be getting a job as a security guard there ? He hates the Russians and he's being told the Radar would be there to keep the Russians out. How do you explain to him that the Americans are only out to screw him and his country ?
