Russia Warns of War

Hard to know what to make of this.   A Russian general, Nikolai Makarov, has warned that Russia will use force against Poland and Romania if NATO deploys a planned missile radar/interceptor in eastern Europe.

''A decision to use destructive force pre-emptively will be taken if the situation worsens,'' he said.
While Russian officials have said previously that the anti-missile sites could become targets in the event of war, the threat of a pre-emptive attack was new.

General Makarov has threatened to target NATO bases hosting an anti-missile system designed by the US to protect European allies against attack from states such as Iran.

Makarov is Russia's Chief of General Staff.
