    Is it me or is the only reason why NATO and its member nations are introducing that new missile system is to annoy the Russians?

    Are you sggesting that the clearly stated aims of protecting Europe from North Korean or Iranian attacks, while offering partnership to the Russians is just a ploy?

    Exactly Tinholt, it only fools the laymen.

    In fact, the "Anti-missile shield" is not a defensive ploy, but an offensive one. It's aimed against Russia of course, if only because there are at least 3 to 5 nuclear submarines patroling a few miles away from Seattle and Los Angeles 24/7, and Vladivostok hosts substantial ranks of elite paratroopers, (just in case).

    Of course, now that Iran has bought super-awesome Russian missiles than can sink an aircraft carrier like it was made of thin paper, it also is useful against them.

    But North Korea ?
    I lol'd.
