    US leaves Europe wide open

    US might deploy missiles in Europe to counter Russia | Fox News

    The prospect of returning U.S. medium-range missiles to Europe recalls some of the darker days of the Cold War
    Another missile issue.
    Failure with European-based ABM system never taught us a thing, but it was Bush Jr. who could't succeed. He just wasn't wise enough to defend his position.
    Russia's attitude to any ABM never changed - "accurate response" to any actions violating their national security is what they stand for.
    Or better - if we install ABM - they install them as well.

    Do we really believe Russia is a threat (Cold War V.2) and why it is so necessary to force them to have us in their sight?

    Russia can't keep up with an arms race

    The Soviet Union couldn't. Russia wouldn't have a prayer.

    There is no doubt that Russia is a threat. The only question is, what to do about it.

    Wasn't it Mittens that said Russia is Americas biggest threat, no wait, maybe it's China, no Iran, no the Islamic State. Eight times the military expenditures as the nearest competitor, but there's always some boogy man that's a threat to us.

    Counting money is usually a mistake. It's what you get for what it costs that matters, and the pie charts that everybody is so fond of don't reflect that at all. What's weird, Monty, is than in another thread you're worried about war with China over the South China Sea. We won't be firing the first shot, so if they aren't a threat, then what's the big worry on your part?

    It always concerns me when the U.S. interferes in affairs, such as territorial disputes like it's doing in the SCS. That's always going to be a concern. Otherwise, I'm poking fun of the right wing spin machine who's always moving about the next major threat to the U.S. When in fact, it's our own meddling foreign policy that is the biggest threat to the U.S. Both Russia and China's military spending went on steroids at the same time, when the decider moved into A-Stan and then Iraq. Foreign policy experts are pointing out that USFP is pushing China and Russia closer together. And both of them have decried the threat to global security that the U.S. Dominated uni-polar world is. So it seems to me we create any trouble we may have.

    Never enough money to spend at home, but always able to find more for overseas endeavors!

    Discontinuing our economic war on them might be a good start. It earned us a good sucker punch from Japan once. But then that was the objective. And god knows the fringe right would love to take on Russia.
