    Which means what? What problem could Russia possibly have with a defense system? Other than the fact it hampers their ability to do EXACTLY what they're doing in Georgia.

    Problem being the rhetoric coming from the White House and the timing of the deal.

    What do you think we'd do if tomorrow the Russians place a missile defense system back in Cuba?

    This is unnecessary escalation and provocation from Washington.

    I said "they reacted to us" ... to which you responded "with a threat?" ... as if we didn't threaten them in the first place with this deal ... and now your projecting "yeah, it was a threat ... so what ..." with the whole "what else is new" remark ... it's kind of hard to understand where you are coming from here ... as you seem to be talking from both sides of your mouth.

    Once again you dumb shit a DEFENSIVE shield is NO threat. It does not increase the Polish military, it does not give them new and better OFFENSIVE weapons, it does not do anything except PROTECT the country from a sudden nuclear attack.

    This is like the County claiming the city is threatening it by buying more police cars.
