    How can a massive immobile ABM missile be used offensively ? Please cite an example

Eventually the wall will be high enough to protect me from your gun (with a slot I can still aim and fire through to kill you). Eventually, I will have the ability to kill you and you will lack the ability to retaliate.

    What do you do?
    Build my own wall. NATO forces are a paper tiger and a shadow of what they were 25 years ago. I'm sure Putin knows this full well.

    You fail. Demark is already part of NATO and was one of the founding members.

    Looks like not enough of the Anerican people thought the Obama idiot was bad enough to vote in the Romney idiot. You lose! LOL

    But a SAM is a defensive weapon too. How can you attack using a SAM ?
