Didn’t we just finish a Cold War?

Well, maybe “just” isn’t the right word. But Bush appears to be trying to start it back up.

President Bush and the Czech Republic’s leaders on Tuesday defended plans to base part of a U.S. missile shield here despite fierce opposition from Russia.

…Bush, in the Czech Republic as part of an eight-day trip to Europe, spoke as Russia’s opposition to the proposed defense system mounts. Russia believes the shield in Eastern Europe is meant for it, and says it has no choice to boost its own military potential in response.

Bush dismissed those concerns. He said he will make his case directly to Russian President Vladimir Putin later this week on the sidelines of the Group of Eight summit.

Shakesville has the full story.

And me? I’m getting scared again.
