Yes, it is true... Only America's 'Russian immigrants' Love America... And yes, the U.S. is forbidden from attending or joining BRIC... But given the full picture that NO Country is exempt from serious economical issues; the most over-looked issue is how this will eventually prompt an Int'l cooperative effort to expand missile shields...

First, the financial picture, as Dave Cohen writes:
