Clinton proposes missile shield to protect GCC, with the EU and Russia protected we have something here
Clinton proposes missile shield to protect GCC: Hillary Rodham Clinton, US Secretary of State, who met with the foreign ministers of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) here yesterday, proposed a strong missile shield to protect Gulf Arab states from Tehran and sought to work with them to help end the violence in Iran's ally Syria. Clinton said: “It is a US priority to help the GCC build a regional missile defense architecture” against what that country sees as a looming ballistic missile threat from Iran.
Now I can see this going someplace. I only hope this is not another facade. We hear a lot of negative bellicose rhetoric from Medvedev of ate once again over our missile defense shield. I also happen to have like it when President Obama was supposedly "caught on an open mike" when he said to Medvedev "after I am reelected I will have more leeway to debate on the missile shield" I think he said it on purpose and I also believe absolutely that the republicans have already guaranteed a reelection.
Part of NATO missile defense goes live : The station is located in the city of Malatya, about 400 miles southeast of the capital Ankara, and is manned by both Turkish and U.S. personnel, the spokesman said. Turkey is one of five countries that have agreed to deploy parts of the U.S.-designed defense system. Portugal, Poland, Romania and Spain have also agreed to participate.
I remember a couple months back when Iran said as soon as the site in Turkey was on line it would be a valid target for Iran. I also just caught that Russia and the United States are pretty close to an agreement on being partners on the MDS. The only problem now is getting the US to put on paper that Russia is not a target. That should not be a problem one way or the other. Sign the damn paper.
Medvedev suggests Europe missile defense plan
Russia has said it wants to take part in the proposed NATO-backed anti-missile shield in Europe.
Russia stated clearly“NATO poses no threat to Russia”
After the Berlin wall fell we kept hearing that the cold war was over. The cold war was not over, it just got colder and moved further underground every time Bush threatened and Putin responded with weapons improvements to meet his threat. This could only happen under Presidents Obama and Medvedev, with Putin back in we have to be more wary. After the war mongering of Bush and the ramping up of Putin to take him on, I am psyched at least the whole missile shield thing seems to be coming together. It looks to me like the only ones of consequence to be left out altogether is China and Iran. What am I missing?
Russia is actually agreeing NATO poses no threat to her and agreeing to work with NATO on the European defense shield splitting Europe's defense shield so they would be responsible for half of Europe. I finally feel the cold war with Russia is over and very pleased it is because China's star is rising and they are increasingly the threat the US, NATO, and Russia must unify against a growing threat?
Over 3 years ago after Obama met with Dmitri Medvedev and proposed Russia and the US press the reset button after the mess Bush made of Russian US relations. I am happy to see they have under Medvedev. We have unity with Obama and Medvedev instead of the race to war with Putin and Bush! Obama started this new detente, this new cooperation as had to be the case to send the message. Obama was criticized for it by Republicans as usual but it was the right thing to do. I am glad to see Russia under Medvedev has picked up the baton but what about Putin.
I like the way this new relationship has been! Put the onus on Russia! Put them to the test and advertise it to the world. Supposedly Russia views the expansion of the alliance to include former Soviet republics as a direct threat to Russian interests but are ready again to seek together responses to modern challenges and threats to international security.
NATO is not a threat to Russia. We need Russia as an ally to fight the so called war on terror in Afghanistan and around the world and to successfully proceed through the 21st century. Remind Russia of their past desire to join NATO and offer it to them. There is only one choice! end all this! Invite Russia to join NATO. This is not a new idea. Once upon a time, it was openly entertained in diplomatic circles East and West. In late 1991, the final days of the U.S.S.R Boris Yeltsin stunned a NATO meeting by sending a letter with this unilateral declaration: "Today we are raising a question of Russia's membership in NATO.
Even Putin, in his first days in the Kremlin, seized on the issue. Instead of taking the perfect opportunity to unite the world Reagan and at least the Bush's chose to make a worse enemy of Russia and widen the gap between the west and Russia by instigating them to war.We had the perfect opportunity to unite the world in peace and our past leaders chose to divide it further by trying to rule the world.
We must put an end to this desire to rearm to fight each other, threaten each other, dominate each other. World unity is the only way for a successful future. As China's fortune rises and she is increasingly emboldened not just in Asia but with the US and around the world it is increasingly apparent we are going to need Russia and our future lies with Russia.
Nato chief proposed missile shield to protect Russia too and it is now expected to pass, I'm psyched!
Nato chief proposes missile shield to include Russia
The announcement was made by President Dmitry Medvedev at the Franco-German-Russian summit being held in Deauville, France. Medvedev also accepted an invitation to attend a NATO summit This is almost the best news I ever heard! Can anyone tell me if if came to fruition yet?
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!
Include our so called middle east allies under a protective veil and I really think we have something here if it works.
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.
