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?

    Putin knows damn well what a nuclear attack on a NATO member means, this is the last straw, this man Adolf Putler needs to be stopped by any means necessary, it is incumbent on any person in the world capable of doing so to assassinate this insane genocidal monster.
    That would be a bad idea. He is a political moderate in the Russian authoritarian context and that there are extremist elements in his government and the military which favor a much more forceful expansion of Russian interests.

    These aren't explosive or nuclear missiles, they are kinetic energy only, and would have a minimal (and very expensive) offensive capacity. And they also have much less range than some of the missiles we have, we did that to try and accommodate Russia. But Russia has decided it wants to invade other nations.

    They dont compare to anti-air guns.

Would you also defend the U.S. if it made such threats. Judging by your posting history I think we all know the answer to that.
    You never once seem to miss an opportunity to attack the U.S. for looking out for its best interest and the intrest of the US economy but somehow it is perfectly acceptable to you for Russia to do the same. Why is that.

    You can't finish your wall before I finish mine. Your bricks aren't as good and you don't have as many people to help you lay them. I will finish first.

    Nato forces aren't the issue here. This is nuclear war we're talking about. Conventional forces quickly become irrelevant. It doesn't matter if Russia has more tanks than we do.

    Lots of options, all of which you will dismiss because you'd rather the money be spent on your wealth redistribution schemes.

    The wall and rifle analogy was an analogy. Russia has more nukes than the US, and they are openly aggressive. Much like Reagan knew during the Cold War, its much more difficult to paint a purely defensive missile shield as an escalation.

    again, what's the plan? what's the contingency plan? what will it cost? how much more are you willing to pay in taxes to fund it?
