Tone deaf diplomacy

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland. That's not such a great time to cancel the missile defense shield for Europe. Especially since it was to include Poland and the cancellation is seen as a capitulation to Putin.

Happy 70th anniversary of Soviet invasion

Even worse is that this happens just a couple of weeks after we snubbed the Poles at the commemoration of the start of World War Two.
