Well I live next to Russia,and my country have suffered enough of those oliberators. Believe me,Russia is the same USSR that she was 18 years ago. Those generals, and all other military stucktures are the same as in USSR, only they call them self diferent. FSB is the same KGB, the same personal, the same methods. And of course moust post Soviet countrys like mine will always choose oposite of Russia. And not because we so much like Western,but because we have seen what is Russia ans russians capable. This is teh reason why all ex-soviet country want to be in NATO and why they want missiles and foreign army in its own land!!!

missile shield in poland a threat? how? is everyone forgetting that most russia ICMB's are aimed north and east? NOT west..
but even then, poland would not be safe in a russian missile barrage with that system anyways; do you think it impossible for russia to disable this system in the event of war or to overwhelm their country?
lets not forget who we are talking about here.

Again, putting a missile defence in Poland is very different from putting nuclear-capable strike bombers on our doorstep. We're not supplying Poland with nuclear capability, just with a missile that can shoot and intercept ICBMs heading to well lets' say, London, or Paris, or Washington D.C. in that chance that they do launch them. This will give us crucial moments to strike back. It's merely a counter measure, not a first strike weapon.

I never saw any Russian attempt to get Poland at least partly more friendly , just threats, oil games and other threats. Russia (Russian empire, USSR) has a tense history as far as Poland is concerned. Instead of easing it and creating more economical ties - threats. Then they wonder about US missiles in Poland?
