Tough to Sell Out if Nobody's Buying...

Looks like the attempt to mask the cave-in to Russian demands over the missile defence plans as something other than a retreat has hit a snag.
Russia’s president Dmitry Medvedev on Tuesday rejected any suggestion that Moscow would “trade or exchange” in policies in order to dissuade the US from installing an anti-ballistic missile system near its borders in Eastern Europe.
Maybe because everyone already knows that there are "no preconditions" for Team O. They'll sit down with anyone. More worrisome is the possibility that they will give in to anyone willing to spend our money or weaken our positioning.

Will be interesting to see how this plays out. Before you know it, we may be paying for a fence to protect Russia.
