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.

All we really need is a radar-guided Jack Bauer system

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, 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.
