Nato chief proposed missile shield to protect Russia too and it is now expected to pass, I'm psyched!

European missile shield plan is expected to gain support

Nato chief proposes missile shield to include Russia

Russia has said it wants to take part in the proposed NATO-backed anti-missile shield in Europe.

 The announcement was made by President Dmitry Medvedev at the Franco-German-Russian summit being held in Deauville, France. Medvedev has also accepted an invitation to attend the next NATO summi  This is almost the best news I ever heard!
Remember when speaking at a conference in Brussels Nato chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen called for a new missile defense system that would protect the US and its allies, and include Russia as well. I am psyched! I keep saying in every regard but in regard to the war on terror in Pakistan and Afghanistan every day things get better and better. So to is the case with Russia, NATO, and US relations.

Ever since Obama pressed the reset button the relationship between Russia, NATO, and the US has been improving. This proposal is bold because Obama has been trying for months now to illicit Russian cooperation in the new missile shield system. This is good for NATO and hard for Russia to turn down. This is great!

NATO chief welcomes new Russia-US nuclear arms cuts deal In April it was announced that a new strategic arms control treaty reducing nuclear warheads to 1,550 and delivery vehicles to 800 on each side, would be signed on April 8 in Prague and a meeting to ratify it would take place in Washington an April 19th.

At first I did not discuss this because my thought was great we can only destroy the world a thousand times over. But this is all great news as we will depend on each other as we try to proceed into the future successfully. First I have to say thanks to Obama lightening up the mood between Russia and the US I am feeling very optimistic about working together to proceed successfully into the 21st century. Switching to the Aegis missile system which is mobile and already used and proven and scrapping Bush's war mongering worthless MDS Boondoggle was a GREAT IDEA!

First as I said already I am psyched that Russia is now cooperating on Iran and their nuclear program. We could be important allies to a prosperous future in many instances not just Iran, Afghanistan, and the so called war on terror. There is now a possibility that NATO the US and Russia will work on a joint missile defense system thanks to Obama's smart move to use the Aegis missile system and scrap Bush's worthless missile defense shield.

We keep hearing from the war mongers on the right that that when Obama went with the AEGIS and scrapped Bush's war mongering plan that we gave Russia the farm and screwed America and Europe. Quite the opposite is true and you hear it from the horses mouth! 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.

This sounds great on paper but what are they really doing here? They're trading one weapon system for another. As I see it all they're doing is making more money for defense contractors. Remember it only takes about three dozen warheads to eliminate life on this planet as we know it.
The Russians have to go along with this because they have no defense against it yet.
And the $64K question will be: who will be controlling the AGEIS missiles?

I think it is great because it is Obama and Medvedev not Bush and Putin. I remember when Putin suggested this to Bush who of course said no. You have to hope, it is all we have!

Jim, you and I were both saying this as far back as 2005.
