Going The Wrong Way

A Russian general has suggested that Russia might drop out of an arms-reduction treaty with the U.S. if we put weapon systems in Poland and Czech Republic.

(AP/IHT) "We shall see what our American partners do," Baluyevsky was quoted as saying by Interfax, ITAR-Tass and RIA Novosti. "Their actions to deploy missile defense sites in Europe are inexplicable."

Putin has said he does not trust American claims that the planned European missile-defense system is intended to counter threats from Iran, and he has warned that Russia would take retaliatory measures.
This may or may not be big news compared to a dead blond and snow in February(unless you live in Oswego NY), but it would be nice if the MSM started paying a little more attention.
