Russia Warns of Response to US Missile Shield
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says Russia will aim missiles at U.S. anti-missile sites in eastern Europe if the United States does not heed Russian concerns about its missile defense plans.

Mr. Medvedev said in a televised statement Wednesday that Russia will deploy long-range missiles in the southern and western parts of the country if it fails to agree with the United States on its plans for an anti-missile shield.

The White House swiftly responded to Mr. Medvedev's statement, saying it will not alter in any way its plans to deploy a missile shield.

National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor maintained the U.S. stance that the missile defense shield does not threaten Russia's own nuclear deterrent. He said the U.S. wants to enhance missile defense cooperation with Russia in order to provide security for both countries.

1. why? Are we still arguing about which economic plan is better?
what the fuck is wrong with all these leaders that want to aim nukes here and there while the typical local joe just wants to go to work, go home, have a beer or coffee and see his kids do better than he did?

2000 years and this is the best we can do. :argh:

3. We should be worried, why?
I am far more concerned about the possibility of nuclear terrorism, than Russia possibly throwing a hissy fit over the missile shield.
