“I would add something about what we have had to face in recent years: what is it? It is the construction of a global missile defense system, the installation of military bases around Russia, the unbridled expansion of NATO and other similar ‘presents’ for Russia ~ we therefore have every reason to believe that they are simply testing our strength.” 
“we will not in any way limit or change our deployment plans for Europe."
After all, given Washington’s track record of lies and broken promises, there is no guarantee the speeds would even be true.
FULL SPECTRUM DOMINANCE…
One should not forget that official Pentagon military strategy is called Full Spectrum Dominance ~ control of pretty much the entire universe.
Under Reagan and Bush I, it was the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization (SDIO). Under Clinton, it became the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO). Now Bush II has made it the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) and given it the freedom from oversight and audit previously enjoyed only by the black programs. If Congress doesn’t act soon, this new independent agency may take their essentially unlimited budget and spend it outside of public and Congressional scrutiny on weapons that we won’t know anything about until they’re in space. In theory, then, the space warriors would rule the world, able to destroy any target on earth without warning. Will these new super weapons bring the American people security? Hardly. 
MAD was based on the prospect of mutual nuclear annihilation with no decisive advantage for either side; it led to a world in which nuclear war had been ‘unthinkable.’Now, the US was pursuing the possibility of nuclear war as ‘thinkable.’
a fig leaf for "a missile defense umbrella that says ’Made in USA. European NATO members will have neither a button to push nor a finger to push it with.” 
In any case the fact that Washington continues to tear up solemn international arms treaties and illegally proceed to install its global missile shield is basis enough for those in Moscow, Beijing or elsewhere to regard US promises, even treaties as not worth the paper they were written on.
