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?

If you ever have the oppurtunity to go to South Korea as you begin enter the airspace your greeted be multiple Patriot Missles, a grand site in itself, do all of you find this irrational as well?

No you didn't know or you just felt like saying no?

No, the missile systems don't have anything to do with our service men and women stationed abroad.

The problem is, even though they are defense missiles, Russia, like the rest of the world, doesn't trust us. If we go in there, build a base, get it all rolling, you know it's going to be fairly easy to change that station around and put in offensive missiles if we wanted? How would Russia know? We ain't going to let them inspect.

Missile defense systems are the modern day equivalent of the Maginot Line. Everyone behind them will feel good until they are defeated by an enemy with an ounce of creativity.

The Maginot line was very effective. So effective in fact, that the Germans refused to attack it, and instead went around it. Stupid French, not building it all the way to the coast. :)

The effectiveness of the system is only as good as the ones in charge of it. If they build it, then sit on their laurels and think "we are safe now" then you are correct, it will be a failure. If on the other hand, it gets built and considered part of an ever changing layered defense system, then it can be effective.
