French welcoming Russia in EADS to counter US

The French government of Jacques Chirac might be welcoming Russia into the EADS tent as a means of countering the United States.

According to Forbes, "the push for closer defense and aeronautic ties isn't one way traffic [from Russia]. Chirac has long hoped to draw Moscow deeper into th EU's defense arm, believing that Russia's military might is necessary for Europe to match the US as a global superpower."

And some US senators want to hire EADS to build the new Joint Cargo Aircraft (JCA) for the Pentagon.
