The systems themselves do not concern Russia half as much as the accompanying US military presence in countries hosting them - cough containment cough. The actual utility of these systems relative to the Russian nuclear arsenal is something akin to throwing traffic spikes in front of a tank.

This is just a DEFENSE system against any attacks from a Country who launch a missile!!
Its not an ATTACK system!!
Its better to be guarded against an attack than not to be ready at all....
it's not that the disadvantage of of not being able to launch a first strike on Europe . It's the disadvantage of having you defensive missiles shot down during a first strike on Russia . Why Would they Worry ? Because people like Brzezinski en.wikipedia.org... Have openly stated in a policy that is still being carried out of encirclement of Russia and China and provoking war between them .

Nope sorry, the Alaska site has 12 interceptors rockets, positioned to shoot down anything from N. Korea. The planned Poland site was to house 10 interceptors. I'd post links, but since my numbers are "doctored and false"...I won't worry about it.
The B2 has an RCS (thats Radar Cross Section) smaller than a BB. Yes it can be detected, and the S-300 is a problem, but there are countermeasures to that along with timed route selction, they could get well within Russian airspace.
