    Obama Missile Plan Wins Russia Praise, No Iran Shift

    Tags: * RUSSIA

    President Barack Obama’s decision to scrap a U.S. missile defense system in eastern Europe won praise from Russian leaders. What it didn’t win was a sign that they will cooperate to thwart Iran’s nuclear program.

    Obama stressed that his reversal of President George W. Bush’s plan to place radar and missile interceptors in the Czech Republic and Poland reflects a new assessment of Iran’s missile capabilities, not a response to Russian opposition.

    I think it is being over blown.

    They are probably not lying when they say it is not needed.

    And obviously Russia is happy.

    Settling Cold War

    Brzezinski/Clinton/Obama (in that order) signal towards Putin that they have the desire to come to terms with Russia.

    This is good for America, Europe and Russia, but bad for the Bushists, neocons, McCains all neo-Reaganites /cold warriors, the Military-Industrial Complex, AIPAC and Israel.

    This signals almost "change we can believe in", if i may add ironically.
