I think it means that his focus should be on his relationship or rivalry with the east, rather than spending time on us Europeans since we are checkmate at the moment.edit on 28/11/10 by flice because: additional reply
Probably and to me it seems that the sentiment is mutual. EU is increasingly looking at Russia to form a strong alliance as they are aware of the rapidly fading power of the US.

Europe is in terminal decline. The nations of the east are rising. Its logical for the US to focus there.
Haha, the EU is hardly in decline, the US instead, is. The EU is China's and Russia's most important customer and there is plenty of room left for growth, especially from a military point of view. I should say though, that the Anglo-Saxon attempt to hype the financial woes in the EU is effective.
