Obama to drop missile shield plans?

“Washington has told Moscow that Russian help in resolving Iran’s nuclear program would make its missile shield plans for Europe unnecessary” – March 2, 2009, 4:16pm, en.rian.ru

We should remember this day when Europe, the United States or elsewhere is hit by a missile that could have been stopped by an anti-missle shield.  Never in the course of history has a madman (or madwoman) been stopped by appeasement and backing down from self-defense.  

Let us hope we do not come to rue this day any time soon.
