MOSCOW, July 9 (RIA Novosti) - Russia must use economic and political means, and military ties with Asia, to punish European states that agree to host U.S. missile defense elements, a Russian political analyst said on Wednesday.
Commenting on a U.S.-Czech deal signed on Tuesday on deploying a missile tracking radar, Col. Gen. Leonid Ivashov, the head of the Moscow-based Academy of Geopolitical Sciences, said: "Russia should not limit itself to statements. We must have a plan, adopted by the Russian Security Council, setting out measures on the economic, political and military cooperation levels."

as i said elsewhere:
The premise that the missiles are there to protect from Iranian missiles is utter rubbish since the range of the shahab3 covers
kazakstan, russia, ukraine , molodva,romania, bulgaria and some greek islands *maybe crete*
and thats as far north as it goes.
covers the range of the `best` iranian missile.
so what use are missiles when its 530 miles from warsaw to bucharest?
poland have caught on to the game the USA want to play and don`t want any of it.
