Back in the 1980's one of President Reagan's great hopes was for the USA and the Soviet Union to jointly build a missile defense shield. Well, it looks like it may finally happen thanks to President Obama:
LISBON - Russia agreed Saturday to cooperate with NATO on building a U.S.-planned anti-missile network in Europe as part of what was described as a new era in security relations between the former Cold War enemies.
The accord, announced at a NATO summit in Lisbon, symbolized a conclusion by the United States and its main European allies that Russia is not a threat to be protected from but a potential ally in girding the continent against possible ballistic missile attacks from Iran or elsewhere.
I hope he follows the Gipper more often.
