The Obama Legacy Just Keeps Giving February 22, 2017

I don’t think I need to remind you of who mocked Mitt Romney’s concerns over Russia, nor who completely ignored this buildup on his watch:

Speaking to parliament, Shoigu said that the military received a sweeping array of new weapons last year, including 41 intercontinental ballistic missiles.

He added that the wide-ranging military modernization will continue this year, with the air force set to receive 170 new aircraft. The army will receive 905 tanks and other armored vehicles, and the navy will receive 17 new ships.

“Shoigu” is Sergei Shoigu, Russia’s defense minister.

Then there’s China:

China, in an early test of U.S. President Donald Trump, has nearly finished building almost two dozen structures on artificial islands in the South China Sea that appear designed to house long-range surface-to-air missiles, two U.S. officials told Reuters.

IIRC, didn’t Zero also scrap the missile shield for Poland? I think I remember that being among the daily outrages of his infestation of office.

Guess they’ll have to knock the dust off Cheney’s earthquake machine and sink those artifical islands.
