    If your facts are correct, this would be an example of Obama playing 11th dimension (or whatever dimension it's supposed to be) chess.  Haven't seen this critique of the shift to fight the "North Korean menace" before.  Hope you are right.  Maybe this change will also have some impact on the Russians' decision to stop all American adoptions of Russian orphans (by lessening the tensions between U.S. and Russia).

    •  Not really. These interceptors were pissing off (2+ / 0-)

      Russia b/c they would have been capable of targeting some of their missiles. And they were not going to serve any real purpose there anyway. Adoption thing was for domestic consumption and it's unlikely that they will change it.
