Don't Give Up the European Missile Defense
Poland is calling on the United States not to cave in to the Russians over the missile defense system we had planned to install there. Lately President Obama has been willing to use the system as a bargaining chip in order to achieve better relations with Russia.
Such a move is ill-advised. Inconsistency and noncommittal attitudes with allies does not make for good foreign policy. Improving strained relations with certain nations should not be achieved at the expense of good relations with nations that stand by us like Poland.
