None. They were just being pissy sabre-rattling asshats. Still sore over losing Eastern Europe. Even if it worked, it'd be easily overwhelmed by the number of warheads Russia can launch.It's hard for me to get worked up for either position on this. On the one hand, I'm all for missile defense. On the other, I'm not for building more bases in other countries, and well, this particular form of it hasn't really been proven to work. All the "successful" tests were very specifically rigged and not very realistic (no countermeasures for one thing).
Yeah, you're probably right. What I don't get is the people that think this is going to make Russia all friendly to us. China and Russia will not ever like us unless we give them exactly what they want all the time; which any responsible leader of the U.S. cannot do.
