The deployment by the US of a missile shield in former Warsaw Pact countries is needless to say, an unnecessarily provocative move. President Putin described American plans to move missiles into Eastern Europe as an act of aggression against Moscow.

Recently, Washington had unveiled plans to construct a radar station and deploy interceptor missiles in Eastern Europe to counter the military threat from Iran.

But Mr Putin, by his own admission in a combative mood, said it was clear that the Pentagon had Russia rather than Iran in mind, and the trajectory and range of Teheran's missiles meant that the positioning of the shield did not make sense.

What are Washington’s threat perceptions where Iran is concerned? Has Iran the capability to launch nuclear missiles against the US? No. So this move by Washington is undoubtedly directed against Russia.

In comments echoing the rhetoric of an earlier age, Mr Putin said that Russia would develop a new generation of inter-continental missiles capable of breaching the defensive shield Washington plans to build in Poland and the Czech republic. "We will develop new generation systems which will be immune to the anti-missile defence systems currently being planned. They will be simply powerless."

Russia is already in the process of developing a "hyper-sound, high precision" missile capable of adjusting altitude and course as they travel and strike targets within the United States.

So now America’s updated target list reads…

North Korea

Who’s next??

Apologies for being sarcastic. But American foreign policy has really gone overboard. I’d call it AMWDS (Acute Megalomania and World Domination Syndrome).

interesting how putin claims those sites are being put there in case of russia, not iranian missiles, like america is stating. america still sees russia as a threat.

This doesn't surprise me one bit. Thanks to good ol' George W. the whole world thinks that our country is bent on world domination. That plus Putin being ex-KGB, it wouldn't shock me at all if in a few years we found ourselves in a cold war era situation with Russia. I agree 100% that our foreign policy has gone overboard. I just hope Bush doesn't screw the pooch any worse before he gets out of office in 08(yeah I know he'll screw up more but it helps to have a positive outlook right?). I just hope our next President can get things back under control and get us heading back in the right direction.

Putin is relatively mellow for a Russian.I think he's just making it CLEAR to the US where everyone stands here.
Problems could arise however after Putin has gone, his successor may not be so passive in his approach to foreign 'threats'.
Expect Washington to smooth over these dilema's, as they are more than aware of the above, and what it would mean to really upset Russia.
