Putin raises the stakes

Vladimir Putin has said Russia is considering “putting an end” to the “emerging threat” to its security from NATO’s missile defense shield. The Russian president dismissed US claims that the shield is not aimed against Russia and is instead designed to stop a missile threat from Iran.
Some of the missiles are already carried on ships in the Mediterranean, and others are based in Romania.  Mr Putin said he viewed the development as a threat to global security. Without offering details, he said Russia must take steps to strategically keep up with the West.

    He has been very diplomatic & patient, but if pushed he will protect his people & country from any threat.. The USA are well aware of their threatening move east, & possible repercussions.
