    They are making it so Russia can't launch missiles at us

    That means they can be attacked, and they can't retaliate with missiles

    They'll find a reason to attack Russia.. probably supporting Chechen terrorists again
    The system can't target ICBM'S. So it won't do any of that.

    You think Russia should call the missiles ' spicy American hot dogs ' ? Those missiles look yummy?

    C'mon man... what kinda game are you playing?

    You are seeing this issue to western centric. To understand better how would UK react if let says France builds a Middle Defence system on the channel that is toward to the UK?

    This is as somebody point a gun to you and says it is everything alright and you should not worry.
    Can you be surprised when Russia so openely says 'You'll be a nuclear target if you do this.'

    Target for what exactly? Your next annexation? No thanks.
    Russia is its own worst enemy sometimes, if they just shutup nobody would care about them, because nobody does.

    You should read up on the military strength of Russia and the baltic states. Russia has 80,000 troops conducting exercises on the border.

    The baltic states have no tanks, no fighters, no bombers and about 10,000 troops between them.Estonia asks NATO for 5,000 troops because of Russia saber ratteling and Russia throws a tantrum.

    Insecure or what.
