    I don't think the XBR planned for Israel is that small and neither do I believe it is meant to stop the so called Iranian "missiles." All meant to keep an eye on the region rather than some glorified act of protecting Israel. Maybe meant to deter Russia instead.

    Heck Pakistan can be considered a greater threat than Iran if missiles and nukes are to be considered, especially looking at their robust proliferation activities.

    Who are you bitching at? I just posted an article. There are so many petulant assholes here who want to start a fight. (And I see trackwhack pops up when discord starts to brew, as usual.)

    IMHO, it has nothing to do with stopping anybody in the Middle East. It is just a radar system to deter Russia. It is capable of watching most of Europe, including Russia. Anywhere between 3000-4500Km range.

    US backed out of the ABM treaty in 2002 which allowed ABM missiles to be placed only in one site. They are pushing for multiple ABM sites all around NATO countries(latest Poland) to undermine Russia's strategic deterrent.

    Quite smart if it works out. Take out Russia in a first strike, NATO is protected from retaliation. The ensuing nuclear winter will kill the poor Chinese and Indians and most of the undeveloped world. Chaos ensues and after things settle down the US will dominate the rest of the world forever. I am being a bit sensational I guess, but quite frightening.

    If the US unilaterally backed out of ABM treaty, then next up is the New START Treaty.

    Take a chill pill, his anger was directed at the author as well. I read the article, it was hogwash not to mention arrogant.

    Some kind of evidence for these three claims may be worth discussion.

    Without pursuing further links in the article, the key point claimed is this:
    So the article claims Americans call the shots, but the story certainly lacks depth.
