OK from my understanding they are nato countries hosting the shield.Also within reasonable thinking.Why would they need a missile shield in Poland
and the Czech Republic.How is this any different from aiming a tank?Who are the exactly keeping from these suppose missiles from hitting these host
sites?I dont see Iran ever threating these 2 countries.So it obvious from stopping a ICBM attack from within Russia.Don't people get this is going to
spark a new arms race if not war?
Russia already has a icmb that can penetrate these shield.So i dont get the motive here on what he wants to accomplish.
Russia Tests Missile Able To Penetrate Defences As Putin Warns Of European Powder Keg
Russia on Tuesday said it had successfully tested a new multiple warhead ballistic missile designed to overcome air-defence systems such as the US
shield planned for deployment in central Europe. Fired from the north-eastern Arkhangelsk region, the RS-24 rocket hit its target on the Kamchatka
Peninsula that juts into the Pacific Ocean 6,000 kilometres away, the country's strategic missile forces said in a statement.
"The RS-24 reinforces the military potential of the strategic forces to overcome anti-missile defence systems," the statement said. The test comes
as Russia is locked in a diplomatic battle over US plans to expand a missile defence shield into central Europe, a move Moscow portrays as an attempt
to tip the nuclear balance in Washington's favour.
The verdict is Bush is just pulling a exact opposite cuba crisis but parking anti missile defense on the borders of Russia.Now how is that fair?
