    Russia warns of destroying US missile shield - NY Daily News

    Moscow, May 12 — Russia is ready to destroy US missile defence facilities in Europe if Moscow considers them as real threats, Defence Minister Anatoly Serdyukov has said.

    "(The deployment) raises our certain concerns, therefore we will destroy the missile defence," Xinhua quoted Serdyukov as telling reporters Friday.

    He said that the Russian forces would not need any additional means to fulfill that task as the existing Iskander missiles are capable to neutralise the US launching facilities.

    Meanwhile, Serdyukov said Moscow is still waiting for US proposals on the disputed missile defence system in Europe.

    Moscow has long opposed the deployment of US missile defence facilities near its borders and called for legally binding guarantees from the US and NATO that the missile shield is not targeting Russia.

    Earlier, acting Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Friday that the US research into hypersonic weapons, which Washington aims to complete by 2015, represents an especially serious threat to Russia.

    "This breakthrough decision by the US opens up for them the prospect of a transition from a demonstrator prototype to creation of a multirole hypersonic missile by 2015-2018," Rogozin said.

    The Missile Shield is an abomination which begs to be destroyed. Russia would do well to destroy and answer such a provocation in the bud.

    I think we both can agree upon the fact that there is a stark difference between setting up missile shields on one's own country and that of setting it up on a third country against an unproved, non existent threat. Is India setting up shields in Bangladesh and Myanmar to shield itself from DPRK and covertly targetting it against China?
    Maybe Russia should put nuclear missiles in Cuba now, to balance the equations and furthermore put Iskandars in friendly South American countries.

    You have fertile imagination. Now in the post-communist era Malaysia will be sorrounded by Red China? Hostile neighbors? What are you talking about? China is a joke of a superpower and certainly not well loved in our increasingly prospering part of the World! Bwahahahaha! :drunk:

    If you don't, then why howl when the US undertake routine exercises with Philippines and not so routine exercises with Vietnam in international waters?

    You can ask a Phillipine member in this forum to see if it is true.
