Russia Warns of Missile Deployment - NYTimes.com: "MOSCOW — President Dmitri A. Medvedev of Russia greeted his future American counterpart, Senator Barack Obama, with bristling language on Wednesday, promising to place short-range missiles on Russia’s western border if Washington proceeded with its planned missile defense system in Eastern Europe.

TV sets in a Moscow store showed President Dmitri A. Medvedev’s speech on Wednesday, in which he spoke of liberalization.
In a speech to the Federal Assembly, Mr. Medvedev said Russia had “no inherent conflict with America” and invited the new administration to start afresh with Moscow. However, he did not congratulate Mr. Obama on the election he had won only hours before, or even mention him by name.

Later in the day, the Kremlin announced that Mr. Medvedev had sent Mr. Obama a congratulatory telegram."

By the way...who sends telegrams? Wasn't that like over 100 years ago?

The telegram read -
Dear Mr. Obama. (Stop)
Heard of victory. (Stop)
Enjoy fruit basket. (Stop)
