Merkel and the US missile defence shield in Eastern Europe

The German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called for Russia to be included in the US missile defence shield project in the Czech Republic and Poland. The conservative daily Lidové noviny rejects this proposal. "Washington spent months seeking to include Moscow in the project but Russia flatly refused this. Anyone who adopts an attitude (like Merkel's) in view of this situation arouses the suspicion that they have no interest in the project. If that is the case it would be better to just say so openly. Frau Merkel should tell the Czech prime minister that her government doesn't want Prague and the Americans carrying on an exclusive affair that is beyond the control of the European family, or in other words Berlin and Paris. ... The whole thing has a deeper background: Germany has long seen itself as Putin's main ally in the West."
