    Default A new Cold War on the rise

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20070426...n_070426200606

    Putin just freezed the CFE, a major military treaty which prevents troop border deployment after the U.S. and Nato's plan to host a missle defense shield near Russia.

    Why is American military sticking its nose in Europe? Can't those countries decide for themselves what shields they need?

    No other country is allowed to decide for themselves. What kind of world would that be?

    This is just pathetic. America wants to put these systems in Europe to defend Europe against North Korea and Iran. What a bunch of crap. Both of those countries know they would be history if they tried to launch any missiles at Europe.

    America wants to monitor Russia and there is no other purpose for it. It is clear as daylight.

    Condo Rice keeps repeating the same stupid phrase every time. The Russians have thousands of warheads. The idea that somehow you can stop the Russian strategic nuclear deterrent with a few interceptors just doesn't make sense," Rice said. It's obvious that once the silos are built, you can easily replace them with offensive missles rather than defensive ones in time of confilict. Also, if they really did want to stop Iran from launching a missle, you would put the shield either in Iraq or Turkey as it would be more effective at the initial starting point. On North Korea, they don't have such missles and if they did, they would need to launch it over Russian terrirory which North Korea would never do. They would be insane to launch a missle over Russia to Europe. Russia would just knock the missle down or bomb Korea themselves.

    if you don't want the shields built in europe then get on board with tougher sanctions against iran's nuclear program...don't you get this? I am a little surprised that you two guys don't understand how world politics are played...

    The U.S. is not building the shield to protect Europe against Iran. I'm surprised you don't understand this.
    Gopherfan, even if Russia did push for tougher sanctions, the shield would be built anyways. The U.S. is gonna try to occupy all of Europe with Nato presence. Regarding a dangerous Iran, The U.S. attacks who they want regardless of how dangerous the country is. Whatever the U.S. wants, they'll find a way to go to war. Iraq is an example.

    trust me, the US will not be going to war again under this president unless someone attacks us...the president no longer has the respect and the backing of the senate...

    that being said, the best offense is a good defense...

    i like putin and think that he could do so much more with Russia...all you need to do is wait out bush, there will be a bleeding heart liberal in office within 19 months...
