RUSSIA warned Poland yesterday it faced a nuclear attack if it accepts a US missile interceptor base on its soil.

The ominous rhetoric came as Moscow signed a treaty to stop the fighting in neighbouring Georgia, another US ally which is seeking to join NATO like Poland.

US and Polish officials signed a deal on Thursday for Poland to host a system the US says is aimed at blocking attacks by rogue nations, such as Iran.

But Moscow is convinced the base is aimed at Russia's missile force.

"Poland, by deploying (the system) is exposing itself to a strike; 100 per cent," General Anatoly Nogovitsyn, the deputy chief of staff of Russia's armed forces, was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying...

Russia has been arming Syria and Iran and other Muslim nations for a long time - there was never any doubt whose side Russia is on. America no longer has either the will or the funds to police the whole world. We will have no choice but to back down when Russia makes threats. The Pax Americana is dead, class. Stone cold dead.
