Missile Defense System Stand-Off

If, as the Busheviks proclaim, the real and true purpose of placing elements of a missile defense system in Europe is to forestall or defend it against attack from the south or southeast, then the Russians' offer to turn over the big radar station in Azerbajan to the task should be satisfactory, as Azerbajan is directly in line with the direction from which the threat is said to originate.

It therefore follows that the only other, serious, plausible reason for the Busheviks to refuse the offer is if their aim of putting missile defenses in Europe is NOT to preserve Europe against aggression from west Asia, but it is precisely what the Russians fear: to contain the Russians.

Or am I missing something?
