Fair use excerpt.
"ROME - Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that U.S. plans to build a missile defense system in Eastern Europe would force Moscow to target its weapons against Europe."
"Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek accused Russia on Sunday of misleading the public about the planned missile defense bases in the Czech Republic and Poland to hide Russia's internal problems.
"Russia needs an outside enemy to hide problems at home," Topolanek said."
With Putin going off the deep end, the EU has got to be concerned about Russia's interest in EADS. Also, with comments like this you can bet that you'll never see a KC330 if Russia is involved at any level.
Is this just political posturing or a reason for real concern.
