We can thank Obama's reset button: Ukraine takes role to unite Russia and Europe plans bid for 2022 Winter Olympics

EU to Russia: modernize We want 'fast forward', not 'reset'!

Obama is being credited and discredited for changing course on the MDS ( missile defense shield) and going with the Aegis system. We are told Russia has been emboldened and are taking advantage of their new power and a weakened America but I do not see it that way.

We keep hearing from the war mongers on the right that we gave Russia the farm and screwed America and Europe. Quite the opposite is true! This is a win for everyone! Russia now knows they are not the target and have started being productive partners. All of Europe are winners as Russia's nukes will not be turned on them. The reset button has obviously been reset and we are seeing positive results from it every day. The latest:

Ukraine leader wants quicker pace towards Europe

Europe interested in good Russian-Ukrainian relations - Yanukovych

Ukraine plans bid for 2022 Winter Olympics

Russia is not going to deploy Iskander missile systems in Kaliningrad region as a response to the deployment of the U.S. Patriot missile along the border in Poland, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Wednesday.” Currently there are no intentions to deploy the Iskanders since the American Patriot missiles are the part of anti-aircraft defense, not anti-missile one, Russia not to deploy missiles due to US missiles deployed in Poland There would have been threats of war if this was the war monger Bush!

Russia will press the European Union to scrap visas for its citizens and seek the EU's help in modernizing its economy at a two-day summit beginning Monday. Russia seeks EU's help

I just love this obvious cooperation. It is a welcome change after Bush and Cheney's unilateral my way or the highway war mongering. This I am sure is all only possible because of Nobel peace prize winner President Obama pressing the reset button with Russia.
