How is putting these things in poland defending ourselves?

i think it has something to do with trying to shoot down a missile before it hits us and kills us. however i do understand we are a reactionary society and its proly best to just wait until after the fact so we can point fingers as to why were weren’t prepared.

Why would Russia fire a missile the long way- West over Europe as opposed to firing East over the Pacific?

Wait, I know why... Palin would see it coming and shoot it down with her shotgun

Probably against Russia and/or should a Middle Eastern country fire one at Europe... I don't think any of them have the capability of getting one to us

FWIW, I have no problem putting missile systems around the world as long as they stay secure and in OUR hands

The weapons systems are designed to shoot down ballistic missiles. Its best to hit them when they are headed up, not when they are coming down.

How would you feel if Russia wanted to put weapons in Mexico? Or Canada?

These are defensive weapons systems. The Soviet Union had defensive weapons sytems in Cuba in the early 60's. We didn't complain. We only got upset when they put offensive weapons systems there. If we were putting ballistic missiles in Poland, it would be a real problem.

It wouldn't have anything to do with almost a half million service members and there dependents abroad throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East, everyone does know we have multiple bases there?
