The one with the Missile Defense System

Tuesday, June 12, 2007

The ongoing debate on the proposed US missile defense shield in Europe is heating up. Poland and the Czech Republic are among the possible sites. Fears over the destabilising effects of such a shield was confirmed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, with words reminiscent of the Cold War, that his military would respond to a planned American missile defense system near its borders by aiming its missiles at U.S. military bases in Europe.

Putin said neither Iran nor North Korea have the rockets that the system is intended to shoot down, suggesting it would be used instead against Russia.

In the recent Group of Eight nations in Heiligendamm Germany, President Bush took his new toy, the Portable Missile Defense Shield MDS5000x and demostrated its' function to the Russian President.

President Putin's not too impressed...
