The talks come after NATO accepted US plans for a missile defense shield on European soil – opposed by Russia. But it also failed to agree a blueprint for membership for Georgia and Ukraine – which Russia also opposes. Russia said the alliance’s promise of eventual membership to its neighbors was “a huge strategic mistake”.
The biggest fear for the Russians has been the American plan for the missile umbrella on their borders and somehow this is going to be Bush’s administration last and biggest failure with a little help from Germany and France!
About time to show that the …old Europe is here and strong!
