PRAGUE, Czech Republic - March 25, 2008 - Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev charged Monday a proposed missile defense system Washington wants to place in eastern Europe is aimed against Russia and China, but not Iran, as the U.S. has been claiming.
"Do you believe that that the whole thing is meant against Iran? That's complete nonsense," Gorbachev said in an interview with the Czech public television aired Monday.
"Iran poses no threat. It is possible to deal with Iran with different means, if necessary," he said.
"The entire system is directed against Russia and China, that's how we understand it," Gorbachev said

Agreed, but as the saying goes, "there is nothing more dangerous than a wounded animal".
You can study an animal carefully and take all the proper precautions and still end up with a stingray spike through your chest.

Honestly what if Russia and China were to place missile defense systems in Canada, and England would that not show that it is there for the US?
