Putin Turns the Heat Up

Coming from Vladimir Putin's Russia it's a threat that has to be taken seriously.

Poland and the Czech Republic have infuriated the Russian president by agreeing to allow US anti-missile rockets to be based in their countries. Yesterday they got a terse warning that their decision could make them targets for a Russian missile strike.

Poland and the Czech Republic, both once part of the Warsaw Pact but now members of NATO, don't seem to have been intimidated by the threat.
