Medvedev: Russia may target missile defense sites


MOSCOW (AP) — Russia will deploy new missiles aimed at U.S. missile defense sites in Europe if Washington goes ahead with the planned shield despite Russia's concerns, President Dmitry Medvedev said Wednesday.

Russia will station missiles in its westernmost Kaliningrad region and other areas if Russia and NATO fail to reach a deal on the U.S.-led missile defense plans, he said in a tough statement that seemed to be aimed at rallying domestic support.

Russia considers the plans for missile shields in Europe, including in Romania and Poland, to be a threat to its nuclear forces, but the Obama administration insists they are meant to fend off a potential threat from Iran.

Medvedev and the boyz will given new dachas and business contracts instead. ;)

They just have to make through for the next 40 years or so and there will hardly any Russians left to oppose them imo. Meanwhile, the vodka will be flowing like never before :/


This is some serious stuff

The Sydney News says:
"The Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, has embraced the fiery rhetoric of the Cold War as he threatened to target and if necessary destroy America's European missile defence shield once it is built."

They will be sent $billions$ in aid and scrap these plans imo.
