So what are "the common values that sustain" the West?Unyielding commitment to violence and aggression, contempt for international norms and basic human rights, unabashed arrogance, imperial hubris and chronic self-adulation

The USA has been forged in the blood of other nations from the day colombus landed on the beaches there..its wealth and history are entirly basesd upon the weakness and undefended boundries that they use to corupt and intervene in. Any person thinking that these Americans are in their countries for the pupose of security and friendship are deluded and have got the whole idea wrong...America will not leave without a payment of some sort if not ,,your country its self?

See how the US tries to lump in Europe along with it? That's the problem. As long as Europe keeps on playing second-fiddle to the US, there will be no peace. Europe can do a lot in this area as Europeans are more realistic when it comes to matters of war and peace, as opposed to the juvenile behavior of the US. But right now the EU is a cowardly outfit. It doesn't have the courage to face the US. Only Russia and China do and it's time that they did. The US needs to be reigned in. US has been running a mok for far too long and has left great disasters wherever it goes.

Russia threatens to quit nuclear treaty with US

Feb 3, 2014

Russia has warned that Moscow may consider quitting the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) as the United States has deployed a ballistic missile destroyer to Spain.

Mikhail Ulyanov, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s top disarmament official, said Sunday that if the US continues to enhance its anti-missile capabilities through NATO’s missile defense shield in Europe, then Moscow may be forced to quit the START nuclear treaty.

"We are concerned that the US is continuing to build up missile defense capability without considering the interests and concerns of Russia,” said Ulyanov.

“Such a policy can undermine strategic stability and lead to a situation where Russia will be forced to exercise [its] right of withdrawal from the [START] treaty,” he added.

The warning came after US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced on February 1 the deployment of Navy destroyer USS Donald Cook, equipped with the Aegis shipboard integrated combat weapons system, to Spain.

Washington says the deployment is aimed at curbing possible missile threats from Iran while Russia considers the move as a national security threat.

The USS Donald Cook will become the first of four US ballistic missile defense (BMD)-capable ships based in Europe. The deployment will reportedly cost USD 92 million, with another USD 100 million being spent every year on maintenance of the ships in Spain.

In 2010, Russia and the United States signed the START nuclear treaty, which calls for each country to restrict its nuclear warhead arsenal to 1,550 by 2018.
