Anyone who thinks they are posting current info on what our missile defense capabilities currently are is deluded or about to go to prison.
The Russians aren’t worried about us shooting down a scud or a Taepodong-2, they are worried that we could build a system sophisticated enough to shoot down enough of their missiles that it would unhinge the MAD philosophy and give the USA first strike capabilities.
That’s why communists, socialists and liberals oppose US missile defense.
By the way, it’s pretty lame to argue that we shouldn’t develop/perfect a system simply because it isn’t perfect in the early stages.
