Buried in the news made late Friday made by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel that the U.S. planned to deploy missile interceptors in Alaska and California was the equally important news that the Obama administration was going to stop long-held plans to fully deploy a missile shield in Eastern Europe.

The Pentagon insisted that the change in deployment had nothing to do with trying to assuage Russia and everything with the threat from North Korea, which in recent months has sent a long-range missile into space, detonated a nuclear device, and, last week, sent a barrage ofmissiles into the Sea of Japan.

But the issue of the missile shield has long been seen as a sign of NATO's commitment to protect Europe and former Soviet satellite states against a potentially belligerent Russia, which has made the anti-missile deployment a key target in their diplomatic efforts with the U.S.

We weren't, completely, paying for the shield. Perhaps the majority but not the full load. I do, however, believe that we should be paying a bit more attention to what is happening in Russia. I probably always will as long as the head of state is a former KGB man.

Primarily because of standing treaties that we are legally required to hold true.

Perhaps you have a hard time understanding that what happens in Europe does tend to have an effect on us. Too many things are already tied together to just throw up your arms and say screw it.
