On Obama’s first potential challenge

President Medvedev has already made it clear that he will not allow the United States to dictate in the east.  In the following article the President mentions that he wants to place Russian missiles near Poland in direct response to the United States setting up the strategic missile shield agreement reached earlier this year amongst the weeks during the Georgian/Russian conflict.

The situation in this part of the world is tense ever since the United States started lobbying for Georgia, Ukraine, and other eastern former Soviet states to enter the NATO pact.  NATO was started in response to the potential threat of the west from the Soviet Union after the dissolution of the alliance shortly after World War II.
