Obama to Russia: Will you be my friend?

Barack Obama's foreign policy will make us the laughingstock of the world.
President Obama offered to consider scrapping plans for a missile defense shield in Europe if Russia helps rein in Iran's nuclear program, the Russian newspaper Kommersant reported.

Obama inherited plans to build the system in Poland and the Czech Republic from the Bush administration, but the new administration has equivocated over the project. Though the plans were put in place to deter nations like Iran and North Korea from launching attacks and developing nuclear weapons, Russia has interpreted the planned installation as a threat.
I've asked this before: If Russia has no aggressive intentions, how is this a threat to them? Yeah, that's a rhetorical question.

At least with Bush, the world only hated us.
