Despite the restrictive budgets facing the EU countries and the Pentagon, the U.S. has managed to enter several allies on the concept of Smart Defense with drones and a missile defense system with U.S. technology in an initial phase, despite Russia's reluctance, that allow a withdrawal nuclear in Europe. Meanwhile, NATO extended its vision and becomes the hub of global security with 13 new partners that lets cooperate militarily, politically or financially in different parts of the world.
