    Dude. Google earth doesn't have blurred images to obscure the location of important buildings. Russia doesn't need to improve GPS accuracy to hit the White House with a missile.

    This entire "fear" is completely ridiculous. Russia can already accurately bomb things.

    The Russian system is, or at least used to be, called GLONASS, an acronym of some sort. But it's been operating for years. I cannot imagine how or why they need these proposed monitoring sites on US soil, but it doesn't seem to be that big a deal for me.
    It allows for more accurate and more reliable guidance for aircraft equipped with those systems.

    Most liberals don't care that you make sweeping statements with nothing but smoke to back them up. Most liberals ignore such things. It's the people who want desperately to believe that liberals are all evil and conservatives are all good that take such statements with an "Aha! Just as I always thought!"

    Russia has satellites. Hope this helps.

    There is a reason that the GPS system has a built in error. It could be much more accurate but a missile 20 feet off a direct impact can make all the difference in the world. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for showing us how little you care about the United States - I wouldn't expect any less from an anarchist libertarian from CA.

    Almost every single one of the US sites was unblurred years ago. You can check Google Maps right now if you prefer. Moreover I'd hope we can agree that Russia has better geospatial resources at its disposal than resorting to Google Maps.

    The circular error probability (CEP) of an SS-19 is between 220-900 meters and is MIRV enabled. If a volley is launched at Washington it isn't going to matter much if it misses its 'target'.

    That intentional error was disabled ages ago.

    Russia knows exactly where the White House is and they can hit it just fine already.
