Beware rogue salesmen

with one comment

Putin, Gazprom

Don’t answer the door…

to the man trying to sell you a new gas contract, you should know there will be strings attached!

Conservative Home makes a very reasoned response to Russia’s sabre rattling today, including the following from the Shadow Defence Secretary Liam Fox;

“We are fully supportive of the principle of a Missile Defence system in Europe. The threat of nuclear proliferation, such as we now see in Iran, is underlying the need to look very seriously at such a system. This decision should be taken on its merits. No other country, including Russia, can have a veto over our security and that of our allies.”

They go on to point out that Russia and China could share in the protection that the missile defense shield could offer against rogue states who appear to have the will to develop nuclear weapons of their own. However, I do wonder how many agendas Putin is following, domestic, or foreign.
