Obama was already caught promising flexibility with Russia on this issue with the hot mic incident. Im not sure this is anything more than saber rattling to cover the incident further.

Russia warns of pre-emptive strike on AMD if NATO goes ahead
One has to wonder why Russia would choose to make such a threat against a defensive weapon system unless... unless they are upset because they couldn't launch missiles and destroy European cities.

We can thank the Bush doctrine for the "right to pre-emptive strikes" for establishing that precedent....which will eventually come back to haunt us.

This is great. I'm sure soon all over U.S. news we will see Russia demonized for threatening a 'pre-emptive' strike, even though it's Americas specialty. Remember, it's only wrong when someone else is doing it, the U.S. is always right
With Russia being surrounded by bases on all sides, with a missile "defense" system in place that would prevent any type of retaliation from a country that has just been attacked, first mind you, by US/NATO, this defense system, when in place and effectively operating, is a serious threat to Russian National Security! It would effectively mean US can attack Russia without threat of any retaliation, and that threat is the only check and balance system in the world today! Without it.. One World Government here we come!
