America's To Blame!

In words reminiscent of a petulant schoolboy complaining, "But he started it!" President Vladimir Putin says that Russia will once again aim its missiles at targets in Europe if U.S. plans to build a missile defense shield near Russia's borders go ahead. Putin acknowledged Russia's response risks restarting an arms race but he said Moscow would not be responsible for the consequences because Washington had started it.

I can but point to what I have already said in A Country Without A Hero, The New Cold War, and Star Wars.
