Cooperation with the Kremlin in Missile Defense... hmm

I must admit I was surprised to read this article detailing the new U.S. offer to cooperate with Russia in the construction of its missile defense network in Europe. While I am, at best, a tepid supporter of the notion of missile defense (there are better ways to spend defense dollars), I am shocked and gladdened to see my leadership displaying some rudimentary sense of diplomacy and strategic thinking. It is leading to a bit of cognitive dissonance on my part given past experience, but not in a bad way.
