I am not too sure how true but I did read that Russia wanted joint intelligence or shared basis to build the missile shield with America.
Not a bad idea as Russia would see that the defences are not targeted for Russia and America would have a more free hand to target who they liked then.
Unfortunately America did not want to share this with Russia, hence the ongoing tension between the two powers.

as the OP mentioned above, it really is a lose-lose situation.
I can't believe how childish governments and politics are. a true measure of relations would be letting the Russians also have part in the defense system. - I mean, why not? they can just blow them up if they wanted too.
I wonder what it's like living on a war less planet.

My question to ATS is, why is it such a big deal to build a defense system, or shield, on your own land?
That confused me. I apologize.
They never put the best interest of the world first, its just a constant ego battle...
