I've said this before and I'll say it again. There are much larger REAL potential threats from the EAST to the US/West and Iran Aint it.
Stay tuned people.
By the way NATO and Russia will most likely be sharing Missile defense in the future.
Moscow has expressed concerns about how the system would affect its own missile deterrent, and whether it would have the capability to counter Russia's own missiles.
However, last week Russia pledged to boost cooperation with NATO in Afghanistan and consider a joint missile defence shield, after a meeting between President Medvedev and NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
Russia is willing to discuss NATO plans for a European missile defense system, though it wishes to have equal involvement in the creation of the shield, Agence France-Presse reported Saturday (see GSN, Oct. 21).
BERLIN — The United States wants to cooperate with Russia on setting up an European missile defence shield, a senior US official said Wednesday ahead of next month's NATO summit in Lisbon. "It's absolutely clear we want to do this cooperatively with Russia," assistant US Secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs Philip Gordon told reporters Wednesday during a visit to Berlin.
