Washington prepares to activate missile shield in Southern Europe


rt.com

The Defense Department is nearing a deal to establish a key radar station in Turkey or Bulgaria, the Washington Post said on August 1

However, Obama also pledged to develop a new missile shield for Europe with “a phased, adaptive approach.” US officials say the first stage will become operational next year when Aegis ships, armed with SM-3 missile interceptors start patrolling the Mediterranean and Black seas. They are supposed to be linked up with the high-power radar planned for Southern Europe.

Looks like the US is problably going to be expanding their missle shield program.

The US is supposed to build a "X-band radar installation" in either Turkey or Bulgaria. They say its for defence against an Iranian missle launch. It could be set up by sometime next year.

Plus, there's going to be Aegis ships patrolling the Mediterranean and Black seas.

Im guessing the US has the money to pay for all of this? I wonder how much this will cost all together.

Where is our missile shield? We don't have one but we are willing to build one for other countries?

Hope they come around here(spain) so we can use the same terror techniques they use on the world, I just hope some real terrorists would start blowing american assets outside the US. And not feeling sorry for the lost american souls, your rulers have made it that you well deserve it.

what is this shield made of, is it just radars and anti missile missiles.

i thinks its deconstructive to spend money on new war devices.

Not everyone in the US is content with its death grip on the world or its citizens. Personally, I hope the world destroys itself.


Perhaps the survivors will establish a proper non-state non-agressive society.

Missile defense in Turkey, right okay, how about one researches their previous acquisitions from 5 or 10 years, that alone will allow you a precise reality indication off how far of the media is.

How can you say that Americans deserve to lose their lives? That is a horrible thing to say. What our government does is their own thing but to say people deserve to lose their lives no matter where they are from is beyond comprehension for me i would never wish this on anyone.
Instead of continuing the spread of hate and violence just try to help thy brothers and sisters. the day everyone stops to think about others and not so much their own personal agendas and wants is the day we will make a change for the better as a species.

Wow. Really?

So you support terrorism as long as it is directed at those you think deserve it?

Go look in the mirror while you're spouting all that hate. Not pretty, huh?

I'm not missing his point. Spouting off like that is part of the problem not the solution. Read between the lines? That's not necessary.

Sure, i see your point as i see his or her point, but that does require that i show my deck of cards, right ?

Fact of the matter is, as history has indicated the dominant will always be targeted regardless of "its" intentions.
