Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Bombing the installations in Poland and the Czech Republic would be a military response similar to that of the Americans in the Balkans where, the US reasoning goes, even if NATO acts outside the framework of international law and militarily integrates an area into its fold, Russia will or can do nothing.

Well in Poland and the Czech Republic, the Russians should reason in the same manner. Even if we bomb the two installations, NATO couldn't and won't do anything. This would send a serious message to NATO that Russia is determined to protect its interests and ready to go to great lengths to do so.
