Russian SS-21's Moved to Ossetia?

Russian SS-21 missiles moved into South Ossetia for an enduring threat to Georgia? No… You don’t say.

You mean, like these?

Just for the record, Russia has moved back behind the “Trust, but verify” line of departure. We are now inarguably into “Don’t Trust, and verify anyway” territory.

What we do now with other former-Soviet republics like Ukraine and former-Soviet satellites like Poland and the Czech Republic will be critical. They must not be allowed to perceive that the cost of Western alliance and democracy is unfettered Russian invasion. Such is Putin’s message.

We are compelled to intercept it on principle. And we do not need NATO to do it.
