By placing missiles in Eastern Europe the US sends a signal that Russia as well as China can’t have a sphere of influence in the region, says political commentator Lawrence Davidson. The only ones who can have power are Washington and its proxies, he added.
Just days after switching on an $800-million missile shield in Romania, the US looks like further incurring the wrath of Russia by holding military drills to “promote regional stability” in the Eastern European nation along with five other nations.
Canada has suggested it may join the US missile defense shield after the issue has been dormant for the past decade. The government wants to gauge public opinion about the idea, while adding that that there is a growing ballistic missile threat facing North America.
