Putin Threatens West Over Defense Shield: Today's Cartoon

It looks like it may be time to thaw out those old "Cold War" civil defense drills again. So remember kids, if you see a bright flash in the sky immediately stop what your doing, get down under cover, stick your head between your legs... and kiss your derrière adiós.

For those of us that missed out on the Cuban missile crisis in the 1960's, America's plan to build a "missile defense shield" on Russia's doorstep could provide this generation with the opportunity to experience the same fear of impending nuclear annihilation that was only read about in history classes and depicted in movies, like "Threads"... My how far we've come in 40 years.

For their part, the Bush Administration claims that this proposed missile defense system is intended solely to prevent attacks by "rogue states" like Iran and North Korea. Now, while Iran is still years away from actually developing nuclear weapons, North Korea does have the capability and the means to use them on other countries; which is why a European missile defense system is so important to protecting America against an Asian country that apparently has no sense of direction.
