The Enemy of My Enemy Is My Friend

The interaction between the USA and Russia right now is very interesting - especially Obama's new tactics to engage on mutually "beneficial" topics. Obama is trying to get Russia to help us halt Iran's nuclear weapon development by using the missile defense shield as the carrot, or should I say not developing the missile defense shield as the carrot. Touche!

Check out the NYTimes article on this topic. What I find so interesting about this administration is that they are fundementally changing foreign policy from the predesesor. That is actually very rare over history, despite campaign rheotoric. I have my bucket of popcorn as I watch!
