Among the most idiotic ideas of former President George Bush was to push for installation of a missile system that would confront Russia. The land of Putin is characterized by semi-dictatorship, corruption and incompetence, but the last thing one can fear is that modern Russia poses any form of military threat to any nation. The Russian army is poorly led, staffed by young men who detest serving in it, and the idea of Russia competing militarily with the United States makes absolutely no sense.
It is expected that President Obama will work to reduce tension with Russia and end the idea of a missile system in eastern Europe. American military needs are confronting how to exit Afghanistan and how to confront the growing economic and militaryy moves of China in southeastern Europe. Move south, not east, young man!
