Russia threatens to strike NATO missile defense sites - Washington Times
Russia's most senior military officer said Thursday that Moscow would pre-emptively strike and destroy U.S.-led NATO missile defense sites in Eastern Europe if talks with Washington about the developing system continue to stall."A decision to use destructive force pre-emptively will be taken if the situation worsens," Russian Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov said at an international missile defense conference in Moscow attended by senior U.S. and NATO officials.

The threat comes as talks about the missile defense system, which the U.S. and its allies insist is aimed at Iranian missiles, appear to have stalled.

"We have not been able to find mutually acceptable solutions at this point, and the situation is practically at a dead end," Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said.
Russians are basically thugs, after all. Peter the Great tried his best to drag Russia into civilization, to no avail in the end. Even when the Soviet Union fell apart, it was replaced by criminals.

Yeah, they've got Iskanders on border.

But I think its nothing more than posturing. Small EU countries will continue to be bullied by Russia, just wait for the next winter!

So you will set up missile defense under their nose and they wont be reacting???

The whole world is thug when they stand up against US hegemony or do something not in weird interests of US.

Again:

That kind of saber-rattling is so 20th century.

Good move im afraid to say!
Could be a set-up by Putin for Obama to do some posturing before the election.

Remember Obama told Putin's Mini-Me that he would be more "flexible" after his re-election.
