Could Obama possibly be this stupid?

A top Kremlin official has told the United States Russia wants "red button" rights to a new US-backed missile defence system for Europe, a move that would allow it to influence the shield's day-to-day operational use.
Sergey Ivanov, Russia's deputy prime minister, made the controversial demand during a visit to the United States where he met with top officials including Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State.

"We insist on only one thing," he said of the nascent US-backed missile defence shield. "That we are an equal part of it."

"In practical terms, that means that our office will sit for example in Brussels and agree on a red-button push to launch an interceptor missile, regardless of whether the missile is launched from Poland, Russia or the UK."

Russia has been pushing hard for a prominent role in the new missile shield for months but with little noticeable success as Washington and its allies remain deeply sceptical of Russia's reliability as a political and military partner.

I don't trust Obama to much in such matters. How about you?

  • Putin has been laughing his ass off since the day Obama agreed to the arms/shield reduction. It's almost not fair for the former KGB bad ass to be allowed to even TALK to the naive and clueless Obama!

  • Yes, PBO is this stupid. He pushed the treaty through the Congress and signed the stupid thing. It gives Russia all kinds of influence over the US. This is a 'no brainer' for him. It is a lot like 'redistribution of wealth'. It is just 'redistribution of power'. When I was little, the discussion was that the USSR would take over the US without firing a shot. It seems that they found their guy to give us up 'lock, stock, and barrel'.

  • They will NEVER EVER get that missile defense approved or built much less operating. Its going to take Multiple of billions of Euro's to get it done and NO ONE in Europe has that kind of $$ and wont for a very long time to come with this globally crappy economy.

    Which is why no economy should ever be called 'global'.
